In yesterday’s Farm Report on ESPN New York, Adam Rubin gave out plenty of quality information about the Mets minor league system (as he always does). What I took notice of was the first item in the “short hops” section of the article. Rubin noted that while Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard are all nearing organizational innings limits, the Mets are allowing them to pitch into the playoffs.
The B-Mets officially clinched a spot in the playoffs, so Syndergaard’s workload has been monitored plenty of late in order to ensure he’s able to finish the season in Binghamton. For Montero and deGrom, the Las Vegas 51s are seeing themselves in playoff contention coming into the home stretch. For the rest of the season, these two right-handed hurlers will be on 90-pitch limits.
Rubin also revealed that if the 51s were eliminated from playoff contention earlier, they probably would have skipped their final start of the regular season.

Cone K’s 19 against the Phillies in 1991 or Agbayani hits the Grand Slam in Japan to give the 2000 Mets their first win of the season.

No offense to those games, they are in their own way...
It is becoming more and more evident that quality pitching is the hub of a pending baseball renaissance in New York’s Citi Field.

The pitching uptick has many of the Met faithful thinking their...

Las Vegas 5, Fresno 0
The Las Vegas 51s won their fifth straight game today, blanking the visiting Fresno Grizzles, 6-0.
One day after erasing a seven-run deficit for an extra-inning win against Fresno, Giancarlo Alvarado and Robert Carson combined to limit the Grizzlies to just six hits. Alvarado walked three, but they turned out to be inconsequential. He was dominant when the Mets...
The Mets send newly acquired Daisuke Matsuzaka, a recent re-’Graduate’ to the major leagues, to the mound against the Detroit Tigers’ Doug Fister at 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field. Matsuzaka surely hopes his second-chance is more than a ‘Semi-Charmed Life’. Did I mention Third Eye Blind is playing a post-game concert? ‘Jumper.’
