Updated by HoJo at 4:30 PM Gary Apple of SNY announced that GM Sandy Alderson spoke personally with slumping first baseman Ike Davis before today’s game. The message was that he has until the end of this month to turn his slump around or he’s going back to the Minor Leagues. Original Post 11:30 AM Discussions of demoting Ike Davis have intensified within the Mets organization says Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. Although the Mets slumping […]
Las Vegas 7, Omaha 3 Behind a staunch performance from the bullpen, the Las Vegas 51s snapped a three-game losing streak Friday night in Omaha, Neb. The 51s defeated the Storm Chasers 7-3 to even their four-game series at one win apiece. The game was tied 3-3 after five innings, when Las Vegas manager Wally Backman pulled starter Matt Fox and began to use his relievers. Omaha would only get one base runner the rest […]
The early season struggles of Ike Davis have been well-documented. Following his second four-strikeout game of the season yesterday against the St. Louis Cardinals, he’s now hitting an awful .157/.245/.268 in 127 at-bats. That line is hard to look at, but it gets even harder when you realize it only includes four home runs, nine RBIs, and 45 strikeouts. I’ve been in favor of sending Ike down to the minors for a couple weeks now […]
Omaha 5, Las Vegas 4 D.J. Mitchell struggled and allowed ten of of Omaha’s 11 hits over his five innings of work, which led to four earned runs crossing the plate. At the time of his departure from the ballgame, Las Vegas had scored three runs. Eric Campbell was responsible for all of them with an RBI single in the second and a two-run single in the third. Gonzalez Germen came on to start the […]
We are getting perilously close to the time in the baseball season where free-falling clubs tend to fire their manager. Should the Mets sack Terry Collins in the wake of his ripping the fans – who by the way, aren’t coming out to Citi Field these days – they can claim justifiability, but would be making a mistake. Like many quick-fixes, it will not work. Despite Collins’ outburst, firing him is not the answer as it screams panic. […]
Las Vegas 6, Round Rock 5 Zach Lutz and Wilmer Flores hit solo home runs Thursday for the Las Vegas 51s, helping them take down visiting Round Rock, 6-5. Lutz, who also homered Wednesday, started the scoring in the second inning with a home run to right-center field. The 51s scored two more runs in the frame, on an RBI single from Juan Centeno and another when Eric Campbell scored on a wild pitch. Flores homered […]
Las Vegas 3, Round Rock 2 Collin McHugh took the mound tonight and pitched a heck of a game. He continued his tremendous start to the season tossing seven scoreless innings. The righty threw 90 pitches (59 strikes), allowed just five hits, struck out five, and left the game with a 1-0 lead. McHugh came into the game leading the 51s with a 3.57 ERA, but after tonight’s masterful performance, he lowered his ERA to 2.98. McHugh was […]
Sacramento 11, Las Vegas 7 The Las Vegas 51s were defeated Saturday 11-7 at the Sacramento RiverCats, losing for the second straight day to open a four-game Pacific Coast League series. D.J. Mitchell took the mound for Las Vegas on Saturday night and was plagued by a pair of errors in the first frame, which led to seven runs crossing the plate against him in the first inning, but only three were earned. He settled […]
Updated on May 3 at 2:40 PM The Mets have selected the contract of OF Andrew Brown from Triple-A Las Vegas and added him to the 40 man roster, the team announced.

He was leading the team in several different offensive categories including 27 RBI and 61 total bases. To make room for him, the team optioned […]
