Tacoma 5, Las Vegas 3 As has been the case all season for the major league level of the Mets franchise, the Las Vegas 51s bullpen was unable to maintain a slim lead as they went on to fall to the Tacoma Rainiers 5-3. The well traveled Chris Schwinden got the nod for the 51s who were attempting to avoid a four-game sweep from the Rainiers. Schwinden had gotten off to a horrible beginning […]
Efficient. The term popped up in my brain with the regularity Logan Verrett pounds the strike zone as I watched Verrett confuse and befuddle Akron Saturday in Binghamton. Verrett managed his pitching workload with laser life efficiency throwing two-hit ball over eight innings as the B-Mets toppled Akron, 7-2. If making good first impressions is a valued introductory tactic, Verrett hit a home run with me. The B-Met righthander was terrific. In fact, about now […]
Akron 4, Binghamton 0 So Rafael Montero is human after all… The Binghamton Mets struck out a season-high 16 times, and were shut out for the second time in 2013, in a 4-0 loss to the Akron Aeros Friday night at NYSEG Stadium. Danny Salazar carved through the B-Met batting order, matching a career-high with nine strikeouts in his five shutout innings. The righty allowed just three base hits, and erased two of them […]
Las Vegas 12, Tacoma 13 The night did not look promising for Zack Wheeler as the first two hitters led off the game with back-to-back doubles, and before you could blink, the 51s were down 1-0. Wheeler settled down after that and retired the next three batters in order, including two strikeouts. Wheeler cruised through the next three innings, as he did not allow a hit and surrendered just one walk. In the fifth inning, Wheeler’s […]
Binghamton 8, Portland 6 The Binghamton Mets packed all their offense into the first two innings and held on to defeat the Portland Sea Dogs, 8-6, on Wednesday night at Hadlock Field. The victory helped the B-Mets avoid a three-game sweep and secured a winning record on their week-long roadtrip. For the second straight night, the B-Mets put up a three-spot in the first inning, with Allan Dykstra posting all the offense with one swing […]
Mets Minors Report 4/23: Montgomery Suspended 50 Games For Violating Drug Policy, Lagares Joins Mets
Last Night’s Quick Scores The Las Vegas/Colorado Springs game was postponed due to cold. Binghamton dropped a game to Portland, 8-2. St. Lucie defeated Charlotte, 2-1. Savannah had an off day. Prospect Pipeline (Morsels From The Minor League Staff) BREAKING: RHP Christian Montgomery of the Advanced-A St. Lucie Mets, was suspended 50 games for a second positive test of a banned substance. ”My job is not done and my goals aren’t reached yet, but I’m striving and […]
Baseball is a game of adjustments. The Mets under Dave Hudgens’ tutelage have adopted a doctrine of selectivity that emphasizes seeing lots of pitches, running up pitch-counts, zoning in on your pitch, and ultimately getting on base one way or another. There has been a lot of discussion on MMO about whether this approach is effective. The consensus, bolstered by a pile of data, seems to be that it is. Teams that take lots of […]
I thought about the first three spots in the Mets lineup. While the two and three holes seem locked by Daniel Murphy and David Wright respectively, the leadoff spot has been somewhat of a revolving door. Here is the list of starts in the leadoff spot with Murphy and Wright at No. 2 and 3: Collin Cowgill – 6 Jordany Valdespin – 6 Mike Baxter – 1 Kirk Nieuwenhuis – 1 Justin Turner – 1 […]
Savannah 6, Lakewood 4 Jayce Boyd had a great offensive night and the Sand Gnats received a questionable call from the umpires down in Lakewood en route to a 6-4 victory on Saturday night. It was Rainy Lara who got the start for Savannah in this one, and he was shaky at best, allowing 11 hits and a walk. This resulted in four earned runs and it could have actually been worse, because the […]
