Update by Matt M., 8/19: Syndergaard continues to get recognized for his spectacular 2013. He’s currently kept the opposition scoreless for 21 straight innings, earning him the top spot on today’s Prospect Notebook on Baseball America. Here’s what Ben Badler had to say about Thor: The talk of the Mets farm system the last two years when it comes to pitching has centered around Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. While Harvey has become a true ace and a Cy Young contender this season, there’s a chance Syndergaard could eventually eclipse Wheeler in the pecking order. After striking out 10 in five scoreless innings on Friday for Double-A Binghamton, the 20-year-old Syndergaard has a stretch of 21 straight scoreless innings, lowering his Eastern League ERA to 1.59 with a 64-10 K-BB mark in 51 innings. With a fastball that ranges anywhere from the low-90s up to 98 mph, Syndergaard throws just as hard as Wheeler, but his fastball command is well ahead of Wheeler’s. With the improvement of his ...

Justin asks… Why are the Mets always babying their pitchers? It’s not like any of these inning caps and pitch counts have resulted in fewer injuries. Look at Matz and Fulmer and Mejia just this year alone. I just don’t get this obsession.

Hawk posted it on his Instagram feed, and it immediately became a runaway hit with Mets fans everywhere...

Watching The B-Mets Clinch Their First Postseason In Nine Years

At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened. I used this time to tour the campus of SUNY Binghamton University, my mother’s alma mater, and to sit down for a late lunch/early dinner meal at the Lost Dog Cafe. If you’re in the...

Updating this post with some new information, this time from Andy Martino of the Daily News who also hears that it is “widely accepted” that Terry Collins will be re-signed to a new deal to manage the Mets in 2014 and beyond. It certainly seems like nothing will keep this from happening, so get used to it. One interesting side note to this, was Martino’s view on how the role...

Travis D’Arnaud: One Giant Leap For Mets-Kind

With the decision having already been made that Travis d’Arnaud will not only remain with the Mets when John Buck is activated from paternity leave before today’s game, but also that the young catcher will assume the lion’s share of playing time, the Mets have certainly made the right decision. “One of the things we wanted to see over the three days is, was he within an acceptable...

Cecchini’s Four Hits Not Enough For Brooklyn In 1-0 Loss

Vermont 1, Brooklyn 0 Miller Diaz was once again brilliant from the mound in his six innings of work but in a losing effort, as the Cyclones were shutout by Vermont 1-0.
