Four of the Mets minor league affiliates opened up their seasons last Thursday, and with almost a week of game play in the books, it is a great time to bust out the first Who’s Hot and Who’s Not for the 2013 minor league season. Who’s Hot Josh Satin 1B, Las Vegas – Josh Satin has been scalding hot to begin the AAA season, with a .483 average (14-for-29) and a 1.378 OPS so far. He […]
Las Vegas 14, Fresno 3 The 51s bats were in full force, putting the game out of reach by the first inning with a five-spot. — Collin McHugh had a great outing today, going seven innings and allowing four hits while being charged with two unearned runs. He walked nobody and struck out five. McHugh had the offense behind him for the duration of the game so it was just a matter of not imploding […]
New Hampshire Fisher Cats 3, Binghamton Mets 1 BINGHAMTON, NY (by Tim Heiman) – With the aid of two late home runs, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats beat the Binghamton Mets 3-1 in the home opener at NYSEG Stadium. Josh Rodriguez doubled down the left field line in the fourth inning, which got the offense started. After he moved over to third base on a wild pitch, he scored the first run of the game […]
John Buck, 32, has started the season with blinders on. He is focused and locked into every pitch the second it releases a pitcher’s hand and it’s almost as if it heads to the plate in super slow motion for him. He’s kept criticism at bay and been one of the bigger surprises for the Mets in the early part of this season. Buck continued his hot streak with another home run in yesterday’s loss to the Phillies 3-7. […]
Mets Lineup Jordany Valdespin – CF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Lucas Duda – LF Mike Baxter – RF Ruben Tejada – SS Jeremy Hefner – RHP Game Notes The Mets have hit at least one home run in each of their first eight games, tying the longest such stretch to open the season in team history with the 1987 club. A home run […]
When the Blue Jays forced Sandy Alderson to take John Buck‘s $6 million dollar contract as a condition of making the deal for Travis d’Arnaud, many people including me groaned. I loved the fact that Buck could actually catch (unlike Josh Thole) and would be an asset overall, but six million samoans for Buck was simply too much for me to swallow. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and Alderson sure lucked out […]
Binghamton Mets (1-0) at Akron Aeros (0-1) RHP Cory Mazzoni (0-0,) vs. LHP T.J. House (0-0) Friday, April 5, 2013 • Game #2 • Canal Park • Akron, OH • 6:35 PM LAST GAME The B-Mets started off 2013 on the right foot, defeating Akron 2-1 last night. Rafael Montero shined on the mound; throwing 5.2 innings and giving up just one run to earn the win. He also struck out eight without walking a […]
At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That catch brought him into the limelight. But maybe it was just one catch, people thought. If you’ve read the scouting […]
As far back as I could remember, there was something my father always used to say to me whenever I became too obsessed with things whether it was spending too much money on baseball cards, eating too much on Thanksgiving, watching too much television, or just hanging out too much with my friends. “Everything in moderation,” he’d always say I was reminded of that this evening in a very indirect way when I came across […]
