SAVANNAH, GA - Catcher Kevin Plawecki, the 35th overall pick by the New York Mets in the 2012 draft, is off to a hot start in his first season with the Savannah Sand Gnats. If Plawecki can stay healthy for a full season the sky is the limit.

After dropping a double-header to the Rockies on Tuesday and having yet another game postponed Wednesday, there has not been much in the way of good news for the New York Mets. If there is one thing fans can point to with a bit of optimism it’s the progress being made by pitchers Shaun Marcum, Frank Francisco, and Pedro Feliciano.
Francisco, who underwent surgery in December...
While we were worried about his hitting in Spring Training, the last thing we thought we’d have to worry about from Ruben Tejada was his defense.
Well, after an abysmal start defensively, Tejada (six errors thus far) is causing a lot of headaches for a Mets’ team with little margin for error. Tejada has been the poster boy for bad defense by the Mets. In their first 13 games...

Lynn Worthy just broke the news on Twitter, that Jake DeGrom will remain with the Binghamton Mets even when Cory Mazzoni comes off the disabled list next week.
Worthy adds that the B-Mets will go with a six-man rotation which is something they did last season as well.

Dick Monfort, the owner of the Rockies has decided to make today's Mets-Rockies double-header a twi-night double header than a day-night double header.
What this simply means is that the same crowd for game one will see game two instead of emptying the stadium and have the second crowd enter.
Expected game time has been moved back to 5:10 tonight.
It took a little longer than usual in the day, but finally had a bullpen collapse. There were two rounds, although the first is hard to put all on Bobby Parnell. The Mets were up 8-6 in the 8th inning. Using 3 relievers and only having one hit out of the infield the Rockies scored 2 runs to tie the game up. The first base runner was allowed via error and a seeming routine...

According to this tweet by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Mets may have something cooking with the Texas Rangers who are seeking to move outfielder Julio Borbon.

Give the Yankees credit, when they want to put on a show few do it better.
There was a moment of silence prior to the game – also one for former Giants player Pat Summerall – but a note of peace and unity on the scoreboard in honor of those killed and injured in Monday’s terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.
