Savannah outscored Augusta 15-2 in the two games. Savannah pitchers recorded 19 strikeouts against just one walk in the two-game sweep.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy for Scott Kazmir last night. I’ve always been one of those old school fans that quickly forms a bond with our players and look at them as part of my extended Mets family. I hate to see the Mets lose, but last night wasn’t as painful. I sort of felt like a proud father watching Kazmir pitch the game of his life, even if it came […]
In major league baseball, injuries are a common, almost expected part of the game. If you are an everyday player, you generally play between 135 and 150 games a season. If you are a starting pitcher you may appear in as many as 30-35 games. A reliever can pitch theoretically at around 100 games max. When we look at all the members of the Mets that have landed on the DL for either parts of […]
Allan Dykstra, Logan Verrett and Jeff Walters – The Killer Bees RHP Jeff Walters has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas in time for their game against the Salt Lake Bees today, according to ESPN New York. Thoughts from John B. A live arm with a fastball that regularly touches 96 mph, an above average curveball, and a developing change-up — Walters can shut down a game. I’ve watched him throw 16 consecutive ninth inning […]
The New York Mets announced they have selected the contract of LHP Sean Henn from Triple-A Las Vegas. Henn was 3-5 with a 2.81 ERA (18 ER/57.2 IP) in 52 games with the 51s Henn, 32, was selected in the 26th round by the New York Yankees in the 2000 MLB draft. He’s played in the major leagues in parts of five seasons with four different teams (Yankees, San Diego Padres, Minnesota Twins, and Baltimore […]
There was something Sandy Alderson said during his interview on WFAN on Tuesday that made me laugh. When Mike Francesa brought up how well Dillon Gee had been pitching, the Mets GM responded: “I told Dillon after his last game, remember what I told you two months ago: The other guys are getting the headlines, and you’re getting the wins.” In his team-leading and career-high 28th start, Gee delivered another stellar performance and held the […]
With the sun setting on another year of Mets minor league baseball, let’s spotlight some of the players who made us stop and take note of what’s been quite an impressive collection of outstanding performances this season. We begin with 24 year old Dustin Lawley. While it’s undeniable that his age played a significant factor in his performance and future with the Mets organization, Lawley still managed put up some impressive numbers in 469 at […]
Zack Wheeler’s season should consist of about 28 more innings, an insider told ESPN New York, and whether that gets Wheeler through the remainder of the season remains to be seen. Adam Rubin adds that if the Mets operated with a five-man rotation, Wheeler’s turn would come up five times in September — meaning he would need to average less than six innings per outing to complete the season. Being more successful and going deeper […]
