Mets Merized Online:
Charlotte 5, St. Lucie 2
Starting off ugly and not getting much better, the St. Lucie Mets got hit hard out of the gate by the Charlotte Stone Crabs and were unable to bounce back, falling by a score of 5-2.
Marcos Camarena took the hill for his start for the St. Lucie Mets and made it one he will soon like to forget. In just five innings of work, Camarena surrenedered four runs on six hits while walking three and failing to punch out a batter. Jake Hager led the game off with a double and was bunted over to third by Taylor Motter, putting him 90 feet away for Drew Vettleson who drove him home with a liner to Travis Taijeron in right that when for a RBI single. Jeff Malm hit a two-bagger of his own in the second to make a 2-0 ballgame and was quickly driven in by Jake DePew who had a Rib-eye steak of his own to make it a three-run lead. Then in the third, Richie Shaffer served up a solo shot that went to left for a home run. Camarena settled down for his final two innings of work bu...

After dropping a double-header to the Rockies on Tuesday and having yet another game postponed Wednesday, there has not been much in the way of good news for the New York Mets. If there is one thing fans can point to with a bit of optimism it’s the progress being made by pitchers Shaun Marcum, Frank Francisco, and Pedro Feliciano.

Unless you have been away from your computer, smart phone, or tablet for the past hour or so, you probably have already heard that Travis d’Arnaud will probably miss up to two months with a fracture in his foot.
This is crushing news, as Mets fans were started to get really excited about seeing the top catching prospect make his Flushing debut...
While we were worried about his hitting in Spring Training, the last thing we thought we’d have to worry about from Ruben Tejada was his defense.
Well, after an abysmal start defensively, Tejada (six errors thus far) is causing a lot of headaches for a Mets’ team with little margin for error. Tejada has been the poster boy for bad defense by the Mets. In their first 13 games...
Adam Rubin has reported that Mets top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud broke his left foot in last night's game for the AAA Las Vegas 51's while pursuing a foul ball. It is not believed that the young catcher will need surgery because the fracture in non-displaced. When asked, Mets skipper Terry Collins said,
" It's part of the game. He's a catcher...

Lynn Worthy just broke the news on Twitter, that Jake DeGrom will remain with the Binghamton Mets even when Cory Mazzoni comes off the disabled list next week.
Worthy adds that the B-Mets will go with a six-man rotation which is something they did last season as well.
Great news, and DeGrom is exactly where he should have been to start the season.

After news broke that Mets top prospect Travis d’Arnaud suffered a non-displaced fracture in the first metarsal bone, it sent fans into a frenzy regarding d’Arnaud’s future with the team. Many people have been saying that it is not in the best interest of the franchise to keep d’Arnaud behind the plate as a catcher. I have heard numerous fans calling for the Mets to move...
It took a little longer than usual in the day, but finally had a bullpen collapse. There were two rounds, although the first is hard to put all on Bobby Parnell. The Mets were up 8-6 in the 8th inning. Using 3 relievers and only having one hit out of the infield the Rockies scored 2 runs to tie the game up. The first base runner was allowed via error and a seeming routine...
According to this tweet by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Mets may have something cooking with the Texas Rangers who are seeking to move outfielder Julio Borbon.
Borbon, 27, was designated for assignment last week and the Rangers have until this afternoon to trade him or place him on irrevocable waivers. He has a slash of .283/.324/.358 over parts of four years in the majors.
Mets pitcher Matt Harvey hopes to record a single with Henrik Lundqvist, according to the NY Post.

Give the Yankees credit, when they want to put on a show few do it better.
There was a moment of silence prior to the game – also one for former Giants player Pat Summerall – but a note of peace and unity on the scoreboard in honor of those killed and injured in Monday’s terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.
It has become a...
