Found August 20, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
One night after beating the Pawtucket Red Sox in a squeaker at Fenway Park, the Buffalo offense struggled once again, losing 4-1. Jeurys Familia took the mound trying to build on his dominant performance in his last start against Lehigh Valley, when he tossed seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits and striking out eight. He kept the Bisons in the game, but it sure wasn’t pretty. Familia allowed the PawSox to score two in the bottom of the third, one on a throwing error by Familia himself, which put runners on second and third and also gave Pawtucket a 1-0 lead. Two batters later, the Bisons turned two, but a run scored making it 2-0 in favor of Pawtucket.

R.A. Dickey’s quest for 20 wins was not helped by Mets anemic offense

New York Mets starter, R.A. Dickey tossed seven innings allowing just one run on x hits while striking out x on Monday night, but his efforts were rewarded with a no-decision as the Mets, once again, struggled to put up runs lossing for the fifth time in their last seven games: After a Mike Baxter double, a intentional walk to David Wright, and a five-pitch walk to Daniel Murphy...

Thoughts on Left on Base and GDPs for the Mets

Sunday the Mets left 10 runners on base and lost, 5-2. The story of the game is they had their chances but could not cash in. It stood in stark contrast to Saturday’s contest, where the Mets left only three runners on base but won the game. It’s easy to view Left On Base (LOB) as a negative thing but if you are ever asked to lead the league in a negative category, make sure...

Mazzoni Solid, But B-Mets Offense Absent In 4-0 Loss To Richmond

The B-Mets first recorded hit came in the bottom of the third by way of starting pitcher Cory Mazzoni.  Mazzoni, who went 1-for-2 in the game,...

Mets 101 Prospect Watch: Juan Lagares

One of the more troubling areas for the New York Mets to address is their outfield. The team’s outfield has struggled mightily this season, and that includes glimpses of the team’s prospects from AAA Buffalo, such as Lucas Duda and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. While Matt Den Dekker is a potential September call up for the Amazin’s, the team does have some interesting pieces in its lower...

Mets lose with Dickey on the mound. Offense a big Zero again

The Mets as usual these days had no offense last night. This against a team that has the worst ERA in the National league by over a run! Pathetic! The Rockies working with a 4 man rotation and a 9 man bullpen were able to keep the Mets in check and won 3-1. Dickey was taken out in the 7 inning for a pinch hitter and the Mets offense could do nothing against the Rockies bullpen. The Rockies had
