Mets Merized Online:
The Binghamton Mets looked like they were on their way to a win on Friday night at NYSEG Stadium, and then watched that win fade away and turn into a blowout as the Richmond Flying Squirrels scored eight runs in the final two innings to take game one of the series by a score of 10-3.
Mark Cohoon, making his first start since a nine inning complete game gem against the Harrisburg Senators on August 10th, lasted seven and a third innings in the game. Cohoon cruised through the first four innings of the game, allowing only one hit by Richmond batters in that span. In the fifth inning, Ryan Cavan tripled to score two base runners and give the Flying Squirrels the 2-to-0 lead; however Binghamton would score three times in the next two innings to give Cohoon the lead.
Then came the eighth inning and it all fell apart for Cohoon and the B-Mets. After giving up a single, a wild pitch, and walking a batter Ryan Fraser came on in relief of Cohoon. Cohoon’s final line on the night read seven a...

I’m not sure where rock bottom is for New York Mets starter Johan Santana, but after becoming the first pitcher in team history to allow six or more runs in five consecutive starts, I’m sure this is close. Last night Johan was rocked by the Nationals and after the game his pitching coach Dan Warthen, when posed with the question of shutting down the former ace for the remainder...
The title of this post begs to be asked.
Considering that Frank Francisco’s last two outings were-to put it mildly-disastrous, and the fact that he had to be bailed out by Jon Rauch on both occasions, Terry Collins could be leaning towards making Rauch his new closer.
Ever since he came off the DL, Francisco has not been quite the same. In four games back from the DL, Francisco...
Familia Back On The Horse
Welcome back for another installment of the MMO Mets Minors Beat: The TGIF Edition! I’m your host Petey, and we have a lot to cover from this past week. There were some incredible pitching performances throughout the system, yet again. There were a ton of transactions, if you are into that sort of thing. And a few of the notable performers who are simply...
Earler this week, Terry Collins made the announcement that the Mets are going to be trying out a six-man rotation for the rest of the season.
Starting Sunday will be Jeremy Hefner who will be able to give Johan and Chris Young, both coming off major shoulder surgery a chance to extra rest along with Jon Niese who has never finished a full season. I think that a bet like this, much...
The Binghamton Mets batters were only able to squeak out three hits on Saturday night at NYSEG Stadium and in the process couldn’t plate any runs as the Richmond Flying Squirrels took game two of the series by a four to nothing tally.
The B-Mets first recorded hit came in the bottom of the third by way of starting pitcher Cory Mazzoni. Mazzoni, who went 1-for-2 in the game,...

This milestone had never been accomplished by a New York Mets pitcher before, but it did not come with stunned gratitude by a fan base desperately waiting to see it finally occur. Instead, Johan Santana's season offered some cruel symmetry Friday night, when the first Met to throw a no-hitter back on June 1 earned a much more ignominious place in team history. He allowed...
The New York Mets have been relegated to the role of spoilers, now that they’ve fallen back in the National League playoff races. They’ll try to live up to that title this weekend when they visit Washington, DC for three games with the NL East-leading Nationals.
New York just managed to take the final game of a three-game series in Cincinnati Thursday, beating the...
Over his last ten games, De La Cruz is batting .395 (17-43) with 9 RBI.
Charlotte 9, St. Lucie 8
The St. Lucie bullpen just could not hold a lead in this game as they allowed five runs in the last two innings.

Richard Lucas – 3 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, R
Danny Muno – 2 for 4, RBI, BB
Jacob Degrom – 3 IP: 2 H, ER, K
As it becomes apparent that the Mets, as currently constituted, will not run away with the NL East this year, Mets’ fans are all anxiously anticipating this offseason’s upcoming deals feeling certain that we’ll find some improvement via the trade market.
Of course, Mets history has given us many more bad trades than good, but let’s look on the positive side, beginning with...
