The Buffalo Bisons hit four home runs last night, but they still fell short of a miracle comeback and lost to the Gwinnett Braves 8-7 In that game, Val Pascucci hit a pinch hit home run, but the star of the night was right fielder Fernando Martinez, who clubbed a pair of home runs, his eighth and ninth of the season. F-Mart went 3-5 with three runs scored and a pair of RBI from his solo [...]
Remember Pat Misch? While taking a look at how our minor league teams were doing, I was surprised to see how well Pat Misch was still doing at Class-AAA Buffalo. He got off to a great start in April and I thought he would eventually cool off, but I was dead wrong. As of last night, Misch is 5-1 with a 3.33 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in 70.1 innings pitched. He has walked 11 [...]
This just in from Rich Couthino of 1050 ESPN Radio, According to MLB sources Pat Misch was placed on waivers which he needs to clear before the Mets can send him to minors. The problem with that is nobody seems to believe that Misch will clear waivers. Misch had a 2.84 ERA in 18.1 innings last season for the Mets, and after a shaky start he rebounded nicely to give the Mets some solid starts including a [...]
In a new post to his blog, Adam Rubin of the Daily News, analyzes the Mets spring training battles and speculates on the potential Opening Day roster. Regarding the rotation, Adam believes that Jon Niese is still the front-runner to be the team’s fifth starter and writes, The smart money still has Jon Niese claiming the final slot in the rotation over Fernando Nieve, with Hisanori Takahashi only on the fringe of that race, despite the Japanese lefthander slated for a pair of Grapefruit [...]
We all know the Mets added a power bat in Jason Bay, are still dealing with injuries/medical issues to key players like Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and have huge holes in the starting rotation. But I haven’t heard as much talk about the bullpen. A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote a blog on this site about how the Mets’ revamped bullpen, a terrible weakness in 2008, would pile up K’s and [...]
It may have rained at Citi Field today, but Pat Misch still found a way to twinkle through the raindrops as he pitched five effective innings to help defeat the Astros by the final score of 5-1. Following his first career complete game shutout on Sunday against the Marlins, Misch won his second consecutive decision. Before rain put an abrupt end to his workday, Misch had thrown only 61 pitches entering the sixth inning. He [...]
The home team was playing their last game in their ballpark this season. They were fighting for their playoff lives after losing the Friday opener before coming back to win the Saturday game. It was a Mets-Marlins matchup. Sound familiar? Just as the Marlins took two out of three to keep the Mets out of the playoffs each of the last two years, the Mets got some payback today. By taking the series against Florida, [...]
The Mets were shutout last night by Tommy Hanson and the Atlanta Braves 6-0 in front of a sparse crowd in Turner Field. Pat Misch made his fourth start for the Mets and wasn’t sharp at all, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits and 1 walk in five innings pitched. He’s looking less and less like an option for the rotation. After two spectacular starts, Misch has followed them up with back to back dismal performances. [...]
This season the Mets have seen many new additions to their big league roster in order to compensate for their injured stars. Some of these roles have been occupied by career minor leaguers, while others have been filled by seasoned veterans, who have shuttled between teams throughout their career. In particular the starting pitching staff has been decimated by injuries. Three of the team’s top pitchers (Santana, Maine and Perez) are all currently on the [...]
