Akron 7, Binghamton 5
A promising pitching duel turned into a home run derby at Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium, as Akron flexed more muscle than the B-Mets in a 7-5 Aeros victory.
B-Met starter Jacob deGrom and Paolo Espino traded zeroes through three scoreless inning to start the contest. DeGrom cruised in the early going allowing only a lead-off single to Jesus Aguilar in the second. The lanky B-Met starter pounded the strike zone throwing 72 percent of his 39 pitches for strikes during the opening three frames.
Espino too, was impressive, changing speeds effectively and allowing only a one out base-on-balls to Cory Vaughn through the first two innings. Vaughn continues to show patience in the batter’s box as Akron pitchers tempt the B-Met slugger with pitches off the plate. The walk was one of two for Vaughn in the game and his fifth base-on-balls in the last two contests.
Careless baserunning cost the B-Mets a chance to score in the third. Danny Muro led off with a hard double groun...

Just when they needed him most, Jeremy Hefner pitched a lights-out game for the Mets with eight shutout innings, but was betrayed by another ninth-inning collapse in a 2-1 loss to the Miami Marlins, which extended their losing streak to six games. Pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan led off the ninth with a single, took second on a passed ball by catcher Anthony Recker, advanced to third...
Efficient. The term popped up in my brain with the regularity Logan Verrett pounds the strike zone as I watched Verrett confuse and befuddle Akron Saturday in Binghamton.
Verrett managed his pitching workload with laser life efficiency throwing two-hit ball over eight innings as the B-Mets toppled Akron, 7-2.
If making good first impressions is a valued introductory tactic, Verrett...
The New York Mets optioned struggling left handed pitcher Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton on Saturday. Don’t fret Mets fans, unlike what is being reported by some sites, the truth is that the reason they chose Double-A over Triple-A to get his confidence back is because it is closer to their major league club and this allows for a more hands-on approach to getting his confidence...
Edgardo Alfonzo remains one of the most beloved Mets alumni, both for his post-season heroics (e.g. 3 HR’s including a ninth inning grand slam in the space of two vital 1999 playoff games against the Reds and Diamondbacks), and his role as part of the “Best Infield Ever” as dubbed by Sports Illustrated. His flexibility as a player made him an invaluable asset to the team which...
What can be said about last night’s Mets game that hasn’t already been said about my high school prom.
It was long, nobody could score and it turned out to be a huge waste of time.
They say hindsight is 20/20, but my foresight in this one wasn’t so bad either. There were a few poor decisions that were easily predictable.
I’m still flabbergasted by Terry Collins’ inexplicable...

Welcome to the first post in a weekly series called “Who’s Hot, Who’s Not,” in which we look at the hottest and coldest players in the Mets’ minor league system from the past week. Here’s a look back at the week that was. NOTE: Stats are from April 20 through April 27.
Jayce Boyd 1B (SAV)- Boyd has come out of nowhere this season, hitting .405/.490/.583 through...
Johan Santana will always be remembered by Mets fans. He has a certain spot in the history of the franchise for throwing the club’s first and only no-hitter (until Matt Harvey throws one).
Not a single Mets fan regrets the decision that Terry Collins made to keep Santana in. He threw a career high 134 pitches in the game and was far from perfect, but he got what everyone wanted...
Akron 7, Binghamton 5
The Akron Aeros used the aid of four home runs to beat the Binghamton Mets, 7-5, Sunday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium.
After both teams were held scoreless for three innings, Akron cracked the scoreboard with two runs in the fourth inning against Jacob deGrom. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Danny Muno tripled home Cesar Puello to put the B-Mets on the board...
After getting off to a 7-4 start to the season, the Mets have now lost nine of their last 12 games and aside from when Matt Harvey and Jon Niese are on the hill, you don’t get the sense that the Mets will win that day.
Part of the problem was a middle to back end of the rotation that was ill-conceived from the beginning. The ever so reliable R.A. Dickey was replaced with Shaun...
The Phils’ offense comes out smoking as they take the series from the Mets, defeating New York, 9-4.
The Mats took the lead in the bottom of the second as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Jordany Valdespin hits an RBI double, scoring Ike Davis, who had earlier doubled, giving the Mets a 1-0 lead. The Phils tied the game up at one-all in the top of the third as, with...

I’m sure that the Mets player that is his roommate on the road has got some amazing stories to tell already.
