Go Cyclones!!! Norfolk 7, Buffalo 5  By Andrew O’Brien The Buffalo Bisons led 3-1 in the fifth inning, but the Norfolk Tides exploded for five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning Monday night en route to a 7-5 win in the opening game of a four-game series.

What Are The Odds That Jason Bay Is Still With The Mets In 2013?

The hits just keep on coming for Jason Bay, and not in a good way. Yesterday, Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game and said, ”I’m really worried about him”. Bay will be seeing a doctor today and the team will learn if he indeed suffered another concussion, his second in two years. When asked about the possibility of Bay missing the rest of the season, Collins...

Mets Farm Report: Peavey Rocked, Mejia Shaky In Relief, Camarena Tosses Gem

Another rough night In Binghamton… Pawtucket 6, Buffalo 1 Sunday was the final game of the four-game set, and the end result was no different from the first three. The Bisons fell 6-1 to the PawSox, drifting eight games behind in the divisional race heading into an 8-game road trip to Norfolk and Durham. Inefficient starting pitching doomed the Herd this weekend, and the case was...

R.A. Dickey shows how to throw a knuckleball

THAT's what's up We don’t need to scream from the back of the Dickey congregation any longer. He’s been found by all at this point. It’s simply awesome to watch. A knuckleballer that’s captivating any baseball fan worth his salt. The story is amazing. But, more impressively, the pitching is amazing. Dickey’s array of knucklers is dazzling. The fast one. The slower...

Chris Young solid in third start since shoulder surgery

Right hander Chris Young started for the New York Mets on Sunday afternoon, allowing  just three runs — two earned — on nine hits over seven innings of work, though, he was rewarded with a loss: Photo taken by Michael Baron Young, making his third start since shoulder surgery last year, had another strong outing.  He worked his way in and out of a jam in the third before allowing...

R.A. Dickey Continues to Defy Odds As Dominant Run Not Showing Any Signs of Slowing Down

R.A. Dickey's story is an incredible one. The veteran right-hander has seen ups and downs at every juncture of his life, but it's safe to assume he's never seen a peak this high. The Mets knuckleballer has found himself as a pitcher while throwing what some consider a gimmick pitch, and he's throwing it better than he ever has this year. Dickey has been relatively...

Dickey throws second straight 1-hitter in Mets' win

NEW YORK -- Immediately after R.A. Dickey completed his latest masterpiece Monday night, the Citi Field scoreboard flashed a picture of Dickey along with the phrase "Really Awesome." "Really Absurd" might be the better phrase. Dickey continued a dynamic run of pitching that almost defies description Monday by throwing his second straight one-hitter to lead...

Don't look now, but Mets' Davis is hot

In many ways, Ike Davis' grand slam in the Mets' 5-0 victory over the Orioles on Monday was even more meaningful than R.A. Dickey's second consecutive one-hitter. The Mets have amazingly come to expect this sort of production from Dickey, who has allowed one hit over his last 17 innings and no earned runs over his last 42 2/3. But they have not come to expect anything...

Mets tie Subway Series tix price to gametime temp

No reason for New York Mets fans to get steamed over ticket prices for the Subway Series. As part of a summer promotion, the Mets tied the ticket price for some top seats this weekend against the New York Yankees to the gametime temperature Wednesday night. With heat advisories posted in the city, it was 94 degrees when the Mets started against Baltimore, and that meant a nice...

R.A. Dickey Completes a MLB First

Baffling the League Tonight, the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 4-0, but the real talk is of the amazing story of R.A. Dickey. With his one-hit shut-out, Dickey became the first MLB pitcher to throw back-to-back one-hitters since Dave Stieb, of the Toronto Blue Jays, completed the feat in 1988. The accomplishment had not been done in the National League since...

Mets' Dickey one-hits Orioles

R.A. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the New York Mets past the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Monday night.
