Another three wild pitches? Do I have to ship you off to Kingsport?
Buffalo 8, Louisville 0
By Connor O’Brien
The Buffalo Bisons beat the Louisville Bats last night by a score of 8-0. Matt Harvey, who was recently selected to play in the Triple-A All-Star Game, took the mound for the Bisons, looking to improve to 7-3. He was dominant. Harvey allowed just two hits and one walk in seven shutout innings. He also struck out nine. Harvey was on point the whole night, and could have even pitched into the eighth as he had only 94 pitches through seven. However, Wally Backman turned to the bullpen to get the final six outs. First, he called upon Elvin Ramirez. Ramirez threw a scoreless inning, striking out a batter. Pedro Beato came in for the ninth. He is progressing very well with his rehab and also threw a scoreless inning.
The Bisons also had a great night on offense. They began the scoring in the first, with Brad Emaus hitting a two-RBI single. Then in the second, Oswaldo Navarro hit h...
BEST OF MAXIM
Today the 2012 All Stars were announced, and Mets 3rd baseman David Wright was absolutely screwed. Wright who is second in the NL in batting with a .354 average (as of this posting), second in doubles, third in hits, and seventh in fielding.
Wright has had a story book first half, easily a first half MVP candidate, but to be snubbed by the fans as an All Star starter is obscene.

When a pitcher throws two consecutive one-hitters, people take notice. When a pitcher with R.A. Dickey's unique back story does it, the result is a mass media overflow. Leading up to his uncharacteristically spotty start Sunday, the New York Mets' sensation fielded countless media requests on a daily basis, cutting into his preparation. Mets manager Terry Collins believes...
The trading deadline is just over a month away and the New York Mets are in a unique position as buyers. The team's good first half and addition of the second wild card to the playoff format makes it more likely the Mets will have a chance to clinch a playoff spot. The problem, however, is that the second playoff spot opens up the race to a lot of teams, creating...

Atlanta signed Sheets to a minor league contract...
I have been trying to figure out which of the $100 million contracts is the worst in baseball. I believe that I have figured it out. I know there will be disagreement and I know some may argue. However, I believe I have my answer. Although I hear he is one of the nicest guys in the game of baseball, I believe that the New York Mets contract signing of Jason Bay is the worst...
