If you ask me, the worst thing the Mets could have done this year… would have been to thrust Matt Harvey into the big-league team from the start of the season. They didn’t, but could you imagine what that might have done to Matt Harvey’s career prospects? Actually, we all can. Because the Mets were good enough to give us an example… his name is Jenrry Mejia.
Back from a weekend hiatus from Down On The Farm, we return with the deck chairs completely shuffled on the Titanic as Matt Harvey has been called up to the Majors while Zack Wheeler has replaced him in Triple-A Buffalo.

Unlike when Luca met his demise, the Mets usually see it coming
“Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes”. The Famous line from the movie The Godfather seems somewhat fitting for how the Mets looked in July. They looked like they were dead in the water.
Now as the calendar has turned to August it seems as though they have come up for air and are beginning to steady the ship.
One night after recording 13 runs and 19 hits in one of their best offensive performances of the season, the Bisons had to scratch and claw just to score one run as they barely squeaked out a 1-0 victory over Syracuse in a classic pitchers duel.
Chris Schwinden started for the Herd on the night, throwing six innings of scoreless ball while striking out six Chiefs.
“He pounded the...

The Mets have given me no shortage of good reasons to be aggravated.I can't get aggravated by Sunday's loss. Don't get me wrong ... I really want to. Especially because the Mets, as...
