Binghamton 6, Harrisburg 1 The Binghamton Mets launched a season-high three home runs and struck out a season-high fifteen Harrisburg Senators in a 6-1 victory at Metro Bank Park on Sunday afternoon. Binghamton used a ten-hit attack to secure their third series win of the season. B-Met third baseman Josh Rodriguez set the tone early. After Danny Muno worked out his team-leading 21st walk of the season in the first against Harrisburg starter Caleb Clay, Rodriguez blasted an 0-2 pitch into the left field seats, giving Binghamton a 2-0 lead. Binghamton starter Mark Cohoon flirted with danger in his second start, but came out unscathed. He allowed seven baserunners through his first four innings, but used six strikeouts to escape. Harrisburg stranded five runners with Cohoon on the mound and went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. He capped his day with two more strikeouts in a perfect fifth. Binghamton added to their lead in the sixth against Clay. Alonzo Harris started with a b...

Despite Scott Rice’s good fortune, Mets lefty relievers still stink

We all know how the current Mets regime loves the lefty relievers. Five weeks into the season, four different lefties have come out of the pen for the Mets and the club still has Tim Byrdak and Pedro Feliciano as candidates for later in the season. The top brass has also talked glowingly about Jack Leathersich, so don’t be surprised if he makes an appearance later in the year...

Lucas Duda Unfairly Criticized On Plate Approach

Ever since Lucas Duda burst into our consciousness in 2010, nobody has been satisfied with his plate approach. Too many strikeouts and not enough walks, I frequently wrote. He gives away too many at-bats. He tries to pull too much and doesn’t use the entire field. All valid in the early Duda critique. DUDA: Has the right approach (AP). Now, unbelievably, he’s become too selective...

New York Mets: Ike Just Isn’t That into Me

            When I was 18, I started dating my first real girlfriend (girls on the back of cereal boxes tend to be a bit unresponsive once mom throws the box out, after all). Things started out great; we got along swimmingly, spent every waking moment together, and started making plans to move in together. But, after some time, the cracks in our armor began to show. She...

Featured Post: Is Duda Being Too Patient At The Plate?

“Lucas Duda is the preeminent example of the Mets’ organizational offensive philosophy of patience and power,” writes Jorge Castillo of the Star-Ledger. The left fielder’s .417 on-base percentage was 11th in the majors entering play Saturday and his .538 slugging percentage ranked in the top 30. But his remarkable selectivity could also be detrimental on a team that relies...

Mets Minors Report 5/7: Rivera Smacks Five Hits, Robles Strong, Montero On The Hill Tonight

Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas had their game suspended due to rain.  Binghamton dropped to Trenton, 5-0.  St. Lucie topped Daytona, 6-2.  Savannah dropped two games to Hickory, 4-3 and 5-3.  Prospect Pipeline Welcome back T.J. Rivera. We haven’t mentioned Rivera in the Minors Report for a couple of weeks and he was tired of being ignored, so he went out and got five...

New York Mets Purchase Andrew Brown From Las Vegas

The New York Mets have purchased outfielder Andrew Brown from their Triple-A Las Vegas minor league affiliate. To make room for him, the organization has optioned outfielder Collin Cowgill to the same affiliate. Brown is expected to be a situational outfielder who could see some action against left-handed pitchers. The post New York Mets Purchase Andrew Brown From Las Vegas appeared...

Terry Collins Says Jon Niese Was “Too Strong” In Yesterday’s Loss

There will be days like Sunday, where the meltdown is complete in all phases, beginning with Jon Niese, who had an inability to get hitters out, an offense that offered little resistance to Tim Hudson, and a porous defense. It’s not alarming the Mets couldn’t do anything against Hudson, but what should be a source of concern is Niese, who was hit hard in his fourth straight start...

The New York Mets and Zack Wheeler

The New York Mets have had great success with Matt Harvey since he came up last year.  He has really kicked it into high gear to start this season and has become a phenom.  Zack Wheeler is in AAA Las Vegas struggling but most people rate him higher then they do Harvey.  Harvey also didn’t have great numbers in AAA before he got promoted and look how that turned out.  I think...

Memorable sports moment of the week – Darryl Strawberry debuts as a professional with the New York Mets

Famed right fielder Darryl Strawberry debuted as a professional with the New York Mets 30 years ago today on May 6, 1983. The 21-year-old Strawberry, taken by New York out of Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles with the first overall pick in the 1980 MLB Draft, recorded his first hit two days later on May 8. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, the 6-foot-6, 200 pound Strawberry...

Moving Forward: Mets’ Arms Surplus and Possible Trade Targets

By now we are all aware of the tantalizing conga line of pitching prospects dancing their way up the ladder to Flushing. The litany of names is familiar: Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Rafael Montero, Luis Mateo, Steven Matz, Michael Fulmer, Hansel Robles, Jacob deGrom, Jack Leathersich, Domingo Tapia, et al. It is only natural to consider how some of this apparent surplus of talent...

Errors? What Errors? Mets Go Down Hard and Ugly In 9-4 Loss To Braves

This game had a definite carnival atmosphere feel to it as the Atlanta Braves beat the Mets by the score of 9-4 to split the rain-shortened two-game series at Turner Field. What a comedy of errors for the Mets even though the box score would suggest a clean game. I hate sad stories and bad endings so this will be short and sweet bitter. What was up with Duda on that fly ball? Dude...
