EL Pitcher of the Week Mark Cohoon alongside Bisons starter Collin McHugh Behind his complete game shut out and near no-hitter on Friday night against the Harrisburg Senators, Binghamton Mets starter Mark Cohoon has been named as the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the August 6th to August 12th time frame.  The game on Friday night would prove to be the only one Cohoon pitched for the B-Mets, but the Burleson, Texas natives performace was strong enough to earn him the weekly honor, his first such award as a member of the Binghamton Mets in 2012.

Should the Mets shut Johan Santana down for the season?

Saturday night, during the New York Mets 9-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, starter Johan Santana allowed eight runs in just 1 1/3 innings — matching the shortest start of his career –  in his first start since coming off the disabled list.
