Found June 18, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
Ramblings from Henry and Fayette Streets The Week That Was: June 11th – June 17th The news from this past week that had the biggest impact on the Binghamton Mets occurred in the transaction column and not the stats column.  By weeks end, two of the B-Mets top players had finally found their way to Buffalo and the AAA Bisons. First, it was center fielder Matt den Dekker who led the B-Mets in almost every statistical category for batters.  Then, on Sunday, Collin McHugh became the first B-Mets starter to get the call to the Herd (but will more than likely not be the last to make that transition).  It remains to be seen what impact McHugh’s departure will have on the starting rotation for Binghamton, although an argument can be made that Den Dekker no longer appearing in the leadoff spot for the B-Mets will alter the lineup – and specifically run production – for sure.  In the first two games without den Dekker in his usual spot, the B-Mets were only able to scratch out one run losin...

What Are The Odds That Jason Bay Is Still With The Mets In 2013?

The hits just keep on coming for Jason Bay, and not in a good way. Yesterday, Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game and said, ”I’m really worried about him”. Bay will be seeing a doctor today and the team will learn if he indeed suffered another concussion, his second in two years. When asked about the possibility of Bay missing the rest of the season, Collins...

Mets Farm Report: Peavey Rocked, Mejia Shaky In Relief, Camarena Tosses Gem

Another rough night In Binghamton… Pawtucket 6, Buffalo 1 Sunday was the final game of the four-game set, and the end result was no different from the first three. The Bisons fell 6-1 to the PawSox, drifting eight games behind in the divisional race heading into an 8-game road trip to Norfolk and Durham. Inefficient starting pitching doomed the Herd this weekend, and the case was...

Chris Young solid in third start since shoulder surgery

Right hander Chris Young started for the New York Mets on Sunday afternoon, allowing  just three runs — two earned — on nine hits over seven innings of work, though, he was rewarded with a loss: Photo taken by Michael Baron Young, making his third start since shoulder surgery last year, had another strong outing.  He worked his way in and out of a jam in the third before allowing...

Pigeons join David Wright at third base (Video)

Three pigeons decided to join New York Mets third baseman David Wright in the field during the eighth inning of Sunday's game at Citi Field against the Cincinnati Reds. Your browser does not support iframes. Mets broadcasters seemed to think that the pigeons might be spying on Wright, but in reality they simply seemed to be looking for food, albeit in an unusual place...

Go Cyclones!!!

R.A. Dickey Continues to Defy Odds As Dominant Run Not Showing Any Signs of Slowing Down

R.A. Dickey's story is an incredible one. The veteran right-hander has seen ups and downs at every juncture of his life, but it's safe to assume he's never seen a peak this high. The Mets knuckleballer has found himself as a pitcher while throwing what some consider a gimmick pitch, and he's throwing it better than he ever has this year. Dickey has been relatively...

Dickey throws second straight 1-hitter in Mets' win

NEW YORK -- Immediately after R.A. Dickey completed his latest masterpiece Monday night, the Citi Field scoreboard flashed a picture of Dickey along with the phrase "Really Awesome." "Really Absurd" might be the better phrase. Dickey continued a dynamic run of pitching that almost defies description Monday by throwing his second straight one-hitter to lead...

Don't look now, but Mets' Davis is hot

In many ways, Ike Davis' grand slam in the Mets' 5-0 victory over the Orioles on Monday was even more meaningful than R.A. Dickey's second consecutive one-hitter. The Mets have amazingly come to expect this sort of production from Dickey, who has allowed one hit over his last 17 innings and no earned runs over his last 42 2/3. But they have not come to expect anything...

R.A. Dickey Completes a MLB First

Baffling the League Tonight, the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 4-0, but the real talk is of the amazing story of R.A. Dickey. With his one-hit shut-out, Dickey became the first MLB pitcher to throw back-to-back one-hitters since Dave Stieb, of the Toronto Blue Jays, completed the feat in 1988. The accomplishment had not been done in the National League since...

Mets' Dickey one-hits Orioles

R.A. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the New York Mets past the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Monday night. Coming off a one-hit gem at Tampa Bay last Wednesday, the knuckleballer struck out a career-high 13 and allowed only Wilson Betemit's clean single in the fifth inning. The previous...

Bruce, Bailey help Reds top Mets 4-1

NEW YORK -- Jon Niese had appeared to right himself quickly in the first inning Saturday night, retiring two of the Cincinnati Reds' toughest hitters after allowing a pair of leadoff singles. The New York Mets starter got ahead of Jay Bruce 0-2, then opted for a curveball. Suddenly, Niese was no longer righting himself or getting ahead, as Bruce smacked the hanging curve...

Down On The Farm: June 17, 2012

Buffalo Bisons (37-32, 5 GB) -Despite being five games over .500 the Bisons are still five games out of the division with three teams in front of them. Buffalo is still teetering on that edge of either catching up to the lead back or falling back to their I-90 foes in Rochester and Syracuse who are at least 4 1/2 games behind Buffalo entering today. -The team is in a must-win situation...
