Last Night’s Quick Scores
Las Vegas topped Salt Lake, 9-7.
Binghamton defeated Portland, 6-5.
St. Lucie had the day off.
Savannah topped Greenville, 4-1.
Zack Wheeler was arguably rustier in yesterday’s start, than he was in his first game back from his brief DL stint. His three walks were the most he’s given up since April 25. In his two starts from returning from the DL, he has pitched in nine innings, and has six strikeouts to five walks. He also has given up four home runs. Wheeler is as rusty as the Tin Man right now.
MMN’s Player of The Week, Josh Rodriguez, continued to scorch the ball yesterday. He was 2-for-4 with a double and a RBI.
Allan Dykstra is having himself a solid season. The 2008 first round draft pick was 3-for-5 with two doubles and a home run in yesterday’s win for Binghamton. His season average is now just under the .300 mark at .298, and he has five home runs and 26 RBI. He also leads the team with a .960 OPS (he also leads the team with ...
BEST OF MAXIM
With the MLB Draft only 8 days away, it’s that time of year to start looking at potential draft targets for the New York Mets. I find the Rule 4 MLB Draft one of the most interesting drafts to preview because of the fact that it involves both High School and College aged players together.
Like most other sports, scout’s perspectives on prospects are always changing. As a result...
Assuming the Mets play tonight, Ike Davis will bat in the eighth slot. Terry Collins didn’t give a good explanation for the drop in the order, simply saying he wanted to get Marlon Byrd in the game and separate his lefty hitters. Of course, he could do that without dropping Davis.
However, the only thing lower than batting eighth is Triple-A Las Vegas, but the Mets don’t want...
I have always been dubious about Bobby Parnell. Despite the electric fastball, he’s struggled with his command, control and composure on the mound. I always felt that Parnell had the most hittable 98-mph fastball in the history of the game. I personally was ready to give up on him last year, and suggested it was time to move on since he was due a hefty arbitration pay raise in...
If there is one thing that rivals often want to make their hated counter-part do it is make them pay. It doesn't matter if they won last time you played or if you did. They are your rival, and just because they are who you think they are (right Dennis Green?) they must pay.
During the three game series with the Yankees (May 28-30) that is just what the Mets are planning on...

The post #MetsTwitterRecap: #Comeback appeared first on The Daily Stache.
Challenged by fed-up manager Terry Collins, slumping infielders Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada sparked a five-run first inning that kept the New York Mets sailing along in this surprising Subway Series with a 9-4 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday night.
Tejada hit a leadoff single, Davis drove in two runs and the Mets won with Jeremy Hefner on the mound for the first time all season...

Editors Note: An e-mail was received by The Daily Stache this morning at just before 3 AM with us being asked to post this and we agreed. I have been calling out different beat writers for their stupidity this season and now someone wants to go even farther. He calls himself the “Mong Slayer” and this is his Manifesto.

Shin-Soo Choo: Could he be a target for the Mets this winter?
In a recent interview with Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, ESPN’s Buster Olney talked about the free agent market, specifically how the Mets will have to approach the offseason in order to land some of the best players on the market:
For example, take Shin-Soo Choo, who is a free agent this fall. I think the Mets will...
Like many jocks before him, Keith Hernandez has managed to parlay a successful career in professional sports into an equally successful broadcasting career, currently serving as an analyst during broadcasts of New York Mets games on SNY and WPIX. But for all his successes, Hernandez made a derp for the ages during the broadcast of [...]The post Um, guh? Keith Hernandez calls broken...
The Mets, yes that other New York team beat the Yankees for the second night in a row by one run.
Last night was every Yankee fan’s worst nightmare, Mariano Rivera, ninth inning, 1-0 score, blown save and the Mets win.
That is yuck, yikes and gross.
Add on this little historic fact about last night, and you might literally barf:

The 17th annual Subway Series (first was in 1997) starts tonight at Citi-Field, and other than sharing a city these two New York teams are heading in very different
2013 Subway Series.
As this sorrowful story line has not changed since 2009; the Yankees keep on winning, while the Mets cannot stop losing.

If the New York Mets are to continue their current win streak, they must find a way to end their recent struggles at Yankee Stadium.
The Mets can record a season-high fourth consecutive victory Wednesday night by snapping a five-game road skid to the Yankees, who have dropped three in a row for the first time this season.
Though the first two months of the season have been rough...
