Mets Merized Online:
After pitching a 1-2-3 seventh inning, Pedro Beato returned for a second inning of work in Buffalo and did not retire a batter as the Bisons fell 5-1 Monday night.
In the eighth inning, Beato let up a single, then back-to-back home runs, followed by two more singles which was all the Pawtucket Red Sox needed to secure the victory.
Collin McHugh started the game for the Bisons and showed poor command although only allowed three hits and one run in five and two-thirds innings. McHugh’s command has declined from Binghamton to Buffalo in 2012 allowing 2.05 BB/9 in Binghamton and 3.67 BB/9 in Buffalo. His command led to difficult innings for McHugh but he only allowed the three hits and struck out six and was able to contain any further damage. Justin Hampson pitched a clean 8th inning stranding Beato’s two runners in the 8th and Fernando Cabrera pitched a solid 9th inning.
The Bisons could not sustain any offense with only four hits in the game including singles by Fred Lewis, Josh Rod...

When the Mets lost one of the faces of their franchise last winter, a fear coursed through the fan base that the departure of Jose Reyes was the beginning of a mass exodus. Could David Wright, the franchise’s other face, once thought to be a pillar the team would build a championship team around, be next?
The issue of Wright’s long-term future remained a cloud hanging over the...
R.A. Dickey’s quest for a Cy Young hit a speed bump tonight in a bizarre 6-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.
But Dickey will have to wait at least five more days to bolster his credentials. The knuckleballer served up a season-high three home runs to the Reds on Wednesday, dropping the Mets to a 6-1 loss.
Dickey may have been thrown off his game when the umpires forced him to cut...
With the decline of 2012 New York Mets, many fans have rightfully reset their sights on what the future holds. Even prior to the trade deadline, when there was still an outside chance of the team turning its free fall around, some fans sought additions for next season, 2014 and beyond. The notion is sound, but there are multiple situations impeding such moves. First and foremost...
One of Jeurys Familia’s best starts of the season and a grand slam by Matt Den Dekker in the 7th helped the Bisons cruise to a 6-0 victory on Tuesday night.
In the 7th inning, following singles by Lucas Duda and Zach Lutz, an RBI double by Adam Loewen, and an intentional walk to Josh Satin, Matt Den Dekker hit a grand slam to put the game out of reach for Lehigh Valley.
Overcoming an ugly ninth inning, the Mets were able to back Niese’s excellent outing and avoid being swept by the Braves by a final score of 6-5.
Last time the Mets faced Ben Sheets, the result was quite unsightly. This time around however, the Amazin’s got a little bit of revenge.
It started in the first when Wright roped his 34th double of the year, scoring Mike Baxter...

On October 16th, 1969 at Shea Stadium, in front of 57,367 hysterical fans the New York Mets wrote the final chapter of what is still today one of the most compelling “rags-to-riches” stories in Major League Baseball history. A team that for the first seven seasons of their existence had been a laughingstock and the...
Saturday night, during the New York Mets 9-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, starter Johan Santana allowed eight runs in just 1 1/3 innings — matching the shortest start of his career – in his first start since coming off the disabled list.
For those of us hoping a trip to the DL would allow Johan to return to his pre-no-hitter form, we were sorely mistaken as his downward spiral...
It's rare for two interdivision teams to hook up for more than two series' in a regular season, but that's what the Reds (69-46) and New York Mets (55-60) will be doing beginning on Tuesday at Great American Ball Park. Cincy returns home riding a 3-game winning streak that helped salvage a 3-4 road trip through Milwaukee and Chicago. Meanwhile, the third-place Metropolitans...

Shoppach, 32, hit .250 (35-for-140) with five homers and 17 RBIs in 48 games with Boston this season. He is due to be a free agent after the season.
Rob Johnson currently is serving as Josh Thole’s righty-hitting complement, but would...
The Mets put in a waiver claim and now have C Kelly Shoppach from the Red Sox.
He is pretty good against lefties with a career line of .270/.364/.530 .
The 32 year old will split time now with Thole I am sure for the remainder of the season.
Shoppach will be a free agent at season's end.
The Mets have been in the market for a catcher that has some pop.
