When Sandy Alderson and company selected Brandon Nimmo with the Mets first round (13th overall) pick in the 2011 draft it was hardly a slam dunk. This is because Nimmo’s home state, Wyoming, might have a higher population of endangered American Buffalo than high-school athletes. (Also… Wyoming is pretty cold). Nimmo’s talents were only truly put on display with his play...
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.
When asked about the difference between facing Triple-A and major league hitters, Mets starter Matt Harvey said:
“When you make a mistake, they hit it. Down there you can get away with some stuff. Not all the time, but more often than not. Up here, you’re going to make a mistake, they’re going to hit it. They did. I just have to do a better job.”
I really love how Harvey...
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.

Zack Wheeler's Triple-A debut on Sunday has been rained out in Buffalo.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Monday, but it will be held in Syracuse. The twinbill will start at 5 p.m.
Wheeler will pitch Game 1 of the doubleheader, with Jenrry Mejia handling Game 2.
The Mets had tried to ensure Wheeler's International League debut was at Buffalo&...
The Binghamton Mets and Reading Phillies played two on Saturday night at First Energy Stadium in Reading, Pennsylvania, with the B-Mets taking game one by a score of 7-2, and dropping the nightcap 3-1.
In game one, the two teams were knotted at two until the B-Mets broke the game wide open in the top of the fifth inning. Behind doubles by Reese Havens, Wilmer Flores, and Eric Campbell...
From time to time I will check out other Mets websites, and blogsites. I have as they say, some “friends in the biz,” and I enjoy seeing what they’re up to on occasion.
Today I was on Mack’s Mets and I saw something there, an opinion by a “scout,” about one of our Mets farmhands, and I have a real problem with what I saw. I really don’t know what kind of scout this...

Today in Brooklyn, Johan Santana threw three scoreless innings in his rehab start, allowing just one hit, one walk, and striking out three in a 8-0 Cyclones victory over the Auburn Doubledays.
Santana threw 38 pitches before he went to the bullpen and tossed three more simulated innings, totaling 90 pitches for the day.
During his post-game conference, Johan confirmed that he...
Domingo Tapia: Hard Luck Loser
A lot of stuff went on down on the farm this weekend. Johan made a rehab start for Brooklyn. Tyler Pill continues to dazzle in the Florida State League. Nimmo and Evans heat up with the lumber, and much more. And thanks to our new and improved Mets minor league coverage, you don’t have to search the web to find out what happened. We’ve got you covered...
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...
It’s 5:20 PM, and it’s the bottom of the fifth inning of the New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres game. This is the first time I have ever started to write anything before a game was finished, but I have to get this off my chest.
Why are the Mets insisting on Matt Harvey throwing so many change-ups?
I don’t see the logic. I see the logic in the change-up, just not in the way...

You probably have figured out after seven years of doing this that I like to be aggravated. I like to think that I don't aggravate easily without a good reason. And let's face it. 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...
