MMO Fan Shot: Defending Minaya’s Minor Leagues

One of the misconceptions about Omar Minaya’s tenure as GM is that he ignored the minor leagues, and did a bad job of developing players. But the Mets do have a solid group of young players from Minaya. We have quality players in both the majors, and minors from him.  Lucas Duda who was drafted […]

Buffalo Bisons 2 – Scranton/WB Yankees 3 After three consecutive subpar performances Chris Schwinden rebounded with an excellent outing, allowing just two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings. The first run of the game scored in the 2nd inning on a two-out double to score a baserunner from first base. He […]

Buffalo Bisons 5 – Syracuse Chiefs 6 Mark Cohoon‘s peripherals are getting to a point that are almost laughable. His K/9 is all the way down to 4.04 and his BB/9 is up to 3.8. There are only three pitchers in baseball with a K/9 that low this year (Brad Penny, Carl Pavano, and Jeff […]

Buffalo Bisons 4 – Leigh Valley IronPigs 2 Great performance by Dylan Owen and probably the most efficient he has been all year. He was getting a lot of swings and misses and faced just two over the minimum through the first four innings. In the 5th the IronPigs got two men on, but both […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 – Durham Bulls 9 Well, Mark Cohoon looked very unimpressive yet again today to say the least. He was sitting 86 mph with his fastball and had the occasional 87 and 88 mph one, but wasn’t getting much more than that and while he didn’t walk anybody his command was way off. […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 Columbus Clippers 7 This game was so close to finally being a very good start for Pat Misch. He was cruising through the game, having faced just two batters over the minimum through five, and then horror struck in the 6th inning. He had given up a run on a single and […]

Buffalo Bisons 6 | Columbus Clippers 7 While he didn’t pitch particularly well, watching the game I didn’t feel Chris Schwinden pitched nearly as poor as the boxscore shows. He was making some good adjustments throughout the game and pitched into some tough luck defense. After the leadoff man came in to open the game […]

Buffalo Bisons 15 | Indianapolis Indians 2 With performances like this it was just a matter of time before Lucas Duda got the call up. He put up another outstanding performance scoring three runs with two walks and a homerun. He is punishing pitchers. The Indians’ pitcher made one mistake to Duda, leaving a changeup […]

Buffalo Bisons 4 | Indianapolis Indians 13 Tonight ended a stretch of three quality starts in a row for Josh Stinson and boy was it awful. The 2nd inning was an inning where you feel bad for the pitcher as you sit there and watch hit after hit. There was nothing he could throw that […]
