Strong the Force is with Cory Vaughn.
This Just In…
RHP Elvin Ramirez has been promoted to Buffalo
RHP Gonzalez Germen has been promoted to Binghamton,
LHP Chuck James placed on DL
In eight relief appearances Elvin Ramirez had a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings pitched. The 24 year old right-hander is coming back after missing a year with arm woes.
Germen, 24, had a 3.04 ERA over four starts and one relief appearance for St. Lucie. He had a 1.24 WHIP and in 26 innings pitched he struck out 21 batters while walking eight.
Congrats to both of them!
Buffalo 6, Syracuse 5
The comeback Bisons were at it again on Thursday night Coca-Cola Field, erasing a two-run deficit in a 6-5 victory over the Chiefs. Buffalo scored two runs in the sixth inning and two more in the eighth for their sixth win in the last seven games.
The Bisons are now 16-11 on the season. Eleven of those wins have come in games they have trailed. On Thursday, Syracuse took a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the sixth before the Herd c...

The Mets on Friday announced that Batista will take Chris Schwinden's place in the rotation. Batista will be available out of the bullpen throughout this weekend, before starting Tuesday's game in Philadelphia.
That could last for any number of starts, with manager Terry Collins indicating he would like for Batista to stay in that role at least until Chris Young...
I like Chris Schwinden and think with patience he could be a back-end starter or AAAA backup for most teams. However if the Mets are going to try and stay relevant in the NL East and in the 2012 season they cannot continue to toss Chris out there every 5th day… at least not with the general quality of our other four starters. So is there a solution externally or internally...
SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda came down HARD on the Mets new philosophy at the plate with regard to heir approach at the plate during tonight’s Mets pre-game show.
For those that missed it, Ojeda ripped into what he called “this business of taking so many pitches” that the organization has forced the players to adopt.
“SWING THE BATS!” he repeated throughout his respinse to...
Former pickle factory worker, postal clerk and poet Charles Bukowski once remarked:
”The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
I think it takes some confidence to start a blog, put your real name on your opinions, allow others to share their thoughts on your ramblings and do it year after year...
In eleven save opportunities, the Mets bullpen now has five blown saves. That’s not a typo – Five blown saves to go with six saves for the season so far.
Every time that bullpen gate opens, no matter who emerges from it, the odds that they will protect any size lead is a little bit better than 50/50.
A revamped bullpen you say?
The Mets saw fit to expend 75% of their available...

Buffalo 5, Syracuse 2
The purple skies beyond Coca-Cola Field flashed with bursts of lightning south of the Queen City. Between the lines in Buffalo, the Herd struck just as fast for a victory over the rival Chiefs.
The Bisons made quick work of a two-run deficit to score a 5-2 win over Syracuse from Coca-Cola Field. A 23-minute rain...
The New York Mets return home tonight coming off of a road trip that left a really bad taste in the mouths of both the club and fan base. After sweeping the Florida Marlins, the Mets were crushed 19-8 before bouncing back and taking the series from the Colorado Rockies. Just as it seemed the poor performances were behind them once again, they were swept by the reigning MLB cellar...
If 3 & 3 were to borrow a page from the long running children’s show Sesame Street, this edition would be sponsored by the letters P & U. Those two letters sum up how the Mets performed in this three game series. We were so hard pressed to come up with 3 “Ups”, our guys from SNY make their season debut in that category.
1) R.A. Dickey: I honestly thought R.A...
The New York Mets (14-13) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (14-14) by the score of 4-3 today. The Mets forced a rubber game tomorrow with the win today.
The Mets played well today. Johan Santana, who didn’t have his best stuff, pitched seven innings while allowing three runs and nine hits. He battled like always, and gave the Mets a quality start. The Mets gave Santana run support...
The Arizona Diamondbacks (13-13) have to feel pretty good about tonight’s game as fill-in starter Wade Miley takes the mound and he has yet to yield a run in two starts while the New York Mets (13-12) limp into Citi- Field having lost 3 straight and coming off of an 8-1 beating by the Astros.
First pitch is set for Friday, 7:10 pm ET at Citi Field in Flushing, New York.

This is a Mets blog, but also a baseball blog, and part of baseball is Mariano Rivera, the Yankees’ Hall of Fame closer. Mets fans remember Rivera because he snuffed out many games over the years, including Game 5 of the 2000 World Series.
When the ball left Mike Piazza’s bat with a crack I thought it had a chance, but like many before, because of that awesome cutter, Piazza...

The off season in some sports has, at times, adopted the moniker ‘silly season’. It’s that time of year when the dust kicks up from coast to coast, team names change, affiliations change, team locations change. While more prevalent in the minor league hockey world, the silly season affects minor league baseball as well.
This upcoming offseason may prove to be an interesting...
It’s a place that the Bisons haven’t been since early in the 2010 season, but after a 6-5 win over Syracuse last night they now find themselves alone in first place in the IL North for just the eighth time since becoming the New York Mets’ AAA affiliate.
However, no one has really been out to support this young group of talented ball players.
Sure, the average attendance is...
