The minor league regular season is in the home stretch and this seems like a good time to check in and see how big the difference is between Triple-A Las Vegas and the Mets for hitters. It’s always a step up for players going from the minors to the majors and this is even more of an issue with the Mets’ top affiliate playing in one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the minors. So far, there are 16 hitters who have played for both Las Vegas and New York here in 2013. Listed below are the stats for these players in both places, starting with the Mets. table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Player AB H 2B 3B HR BB K HBP SH SF AVG OBP SLG BABIP Mike Baxter 101 21 5 1 0 13 22 5 0 1 .208 .325 .277 .263 Andrew Brown 110 29 5 0 5 7 26 0 2 0 ...

Without Matt Harvey to start games, Bobby Parnell to close games, and David Wright to help win games, few people would blame New York Mets fans for thanking the football Gods that the NFL is about to kick off and we can get on with online football betting.  At face value, the Mets should be a team that is ready to roll over and play dead as the season winds down, but that’s not...

The Case to Extend Dillon Gee

The New York Mets organization won’t fondly look upon August 2013 for years to come. The team struggled to gain any traction following the All-Star Break, lost star pitcher Matt Harvey for the remainder of the season (and potentially most of 2014), and saw both David Wright and Ike Davis suffer injuries that threatened or completed their seasons.
