Last season, with an Ike Davis that was as woeful as he is now, the New York Mets were still eight games above .500 on June 8. Here it is, three weeks into May, and the Mets are already ten games below .500. That 2012 team lost 88 games, how many will this year’s version lose? Shockingly, this team, now in the third year of the Sandy Alderson era, is on pace to lose 101 games. [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas defeated Iowa 9-4. Binghamton beat New Britain, 8-3. St. Lucie dropped Dunedin, 5-3. Savannah lost to Charleston, 4-2.

Las Vegas manager Wally Backman believes Zack Wheeler‘s big league promotion could be about two weeks away, according to a report by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York. “Personally, I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues, and rightfully so,” Backman told Las Vegas’ ESPN radio affiliate. We’ll have our Las Vegas beat writer Rob Silverman on hand Saturday when Wheeler takes the mound [...]

Updated on 3/30 Johan Santana has decided that he will continue his career and has elected to undergo surgery to repair the torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, according to the team. This essentially means that Santana will miss all of the 2013 season. With no insurance to save them, the Mets will owe Santana $25.5 million for the rest of this season and an additional $5.5 million to buyout his 2014 option. Apparently, pitching [...]
Last night and today, I finally got a chance to do some reading and checked out a few of my regular Mets haunts like Faith and Fear in Flushing, Studious Metsimus and of course MetsBlog. I almost wish I never paid a trip to MetsBlog last night. What I read there turned my stomach more than those two bottles of lemon-flavored sludge they make me drink every time I have to get a CT-scan. In [...]

SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda came down HARD on the Mets new philosophy at the plate with regard to heir approach at the plate during tonight’s Mets pre-game show. For those that missed it, Ojeda ripped into what he called “this business of taking so many pitches” that the organization has forced the players to adopt. It started like this after Carlin shifted the conversation to the struggling Mets offense: Chris Carlin: Are we starting to [...]
