Keep it up, kid….We’ll see you in Bingo very soon…
Last Night’s Quick Scores
Las Vegas toppled Round Rock, 6-5.
Binghamton was no-hit by and dropped to Harrisburg, 6-1.
St. Lucie destroyed Palm Beach, 17-1.
Savannah topped Rome, 3-1.
Word on the street is that Zack Wheeler could be making his major league debut very soon…like in two more weeks. “Personally, I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues, and rightfully so,” Backman told Las Vegas’ ESPN radio affiliate. It starting to look like the Mets are looking for any excuse to promote Wheeler at this point. I recently stated that if Wheeler were called up, he would instantly be better than 80 percent of major league pitchers based on his stuff alone. The question was never about whether or not Wheeler’s pitches needed more development, but whether or not he can control the strike zone.
Here’s my prediction for what is going to go down with player movemen
BEST OF MAXIM
Dwight Gooden should be known as the greatest pitcher ever for the New York Mets. He was simply tantalizing when he arrived as a rookie in 1984, and immediately became the most dominating pitcher in the entire league. His first three seasons are almost unparalleled and he topped it off with a World Series ring in 1986. There is a ton of excitement around rookie Matt Harvey at the...
While Ike Davis grabs all of the attention for duplicating his rough start from a season ago, almost no attention is being given to David Wright once again getting off to a terrific start. Unlike last year at this time, the Mets are under .500 and all of the buzz centers around Matt Harvey and John Buck. However, Wright deserves praise for getting out of the gate quick.
Palm Beach 7, St. Lucie 3
St Lucie’s six game winning streak was snapped tonight by the Palm Beach Cardinals. St Lucie’s starter Angel Cuan pitched six solid innings in the loss. Cuan allowed one unearned run in the second inning, and surrendered a solo home run to Stephen Piscotty in the fourth inning. St. Lucie was leading 3-2 in the seventh when Cuan exited the game. While...
There is today’s winner for best banner during today’s Mets Banner Day Parade before the game. If I might say so myself, they did a fantastic job and out of the banners the Mets posted on their Twitter account today, I liked this one the best myself.
Here are some of the other images the Mets tweeted or re-tweeted today, and also a few from New York Newsday:
I loved the message...
Binghamton 3, Trenton 1
With all the talk in Binghamton circling around Rafael Montero, the incredible season that Logan Verrett is having has almost gone by the boards. Verrett went ahead on Wednesday and tossed perhaps the best game of his career – as he nearly finished the game with a complete game victory. He was taken out of the game after 99 pitches, which perhaps was...
New York Mets third baseman David Wright exited last night’s
series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the eighth inning with a sore
left knee. Following the game, manager Terry Collins indicated to reporters –
including Anthony DiComo of MLB.com – that the move was made in precaution, as he
wanted Wright to be ready for today’s matinee.
"When he made...

Harrisburg 6, Binghamton 1
The combination of Paul Demny and Ian Krol combined to throw a no-hitter as Harrisburg topped the Binghamton Mets, 6-1, Thursday night at NYSEG Stadium.
Demny got off to a shaky start; in the first inning he hit a batter and walked another, but escaped the inning unscathed. After that, he settled in nicely on the mound. He retired seven in a row until he...

Once upon a time, not so long ago, the Mets had a top ten prospect named Zack Wheeler who was deemed the heir apparent to their oft-maligned rotation. It had to be Wheeler, who would assume the role of staff ace. Especially with the controversial trade of surprising knuckleballer, RA Dickey. It seemed unanimous that Wheeler, his high nineties fastball, and array of formidable...
