Found July 10, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
Ramblings From Henry and Fayette Streets The Week That Was: July 2nd – July 9th  The Binghamton Mets record in the week preceeding the mid-season break sent them into their mini-vacation on a positive note.  They ended their season long losing streak on Tuesday the third with a 3-2 win over the Altoona Curve, and all told went 5-and-3 on the week.  After their win on Tuesday, the B-Mets traveled to Richmond for their only series at The Diamond this season.  The B-Mets won the series by taking two of three games from the Flying Squirrels.  Then it was off to Altoona for a three game set against the Curve and their only visit to People’s Natural Gas Field this season.  Binghamton took two of three from Altoona, and if it wasn’t for a ninth inning meltdown by Adrian Rosario on Monday the B-Mets would have swept the Curve.  The B-Mets enjoyed their largest crowd of the season on July 3rd as 6,481 fans passed through the turnstile at NYSEG Stadium to watch the B-Mets snap that losing st...

Dillon Gee headed to DL with blood clot in right shoulder

Apparently this All-Star break is not turning into much of a break at all for the New York Mets.  After the controversy of R.A. Dickey being slighted out of starting tonight’s game had somewhat settled, the team is now reporting that Dillon Gee will be placed on the disabled list after it was found that a blood clot in his right shoulder was causing numbness in his fingers. ...

Mets Farm Report: Den Dekker and McHugh Key Bisons Victory, Tyler Pill Tosses Another Gem

“Got To Get To MCU Park Before First Pitch…..” Buffalo 10, SWB 3 By Connor O’Brien The Bisons beat the Yankees by a score of 10-3 last night. The Herd offense had a field day off Yankees starter (and former Met) John Maine. The Bisons didn’t do much early on, but got a run in the second on a Matt den Dekker solo homer. They resumed scoring in the top of the fourth, when...

The Atmosphere Around The Mets Is Shifting

There is something in the air around Citi Field, other than Flushing Bay at low tide. The atmosphere has lightened, almost imperceptibly. The gloom and black clouds that permeated the place are slowly, surely being dispersed. The dust of the previous three seasons is being blown out over the sea. Citi Field is starting to feel like home. I mentioned the feeling that this was...

Val Pascucci Crowned Triple-A Home Run Derby Champ!

While Prince Fielder was winning the MLB Home Run Derby last night in Kansas City, Valentino Pascucci was making some noise of his own at Coca Cola Field in Buffalo where Scooch hit 22 home runs to win the Triple-A All-Star Home Run Derby. A crowd of 17,224 at Coca-Cola Field chanted Pascucci’s name as he hit six of those homers in the final round to secure the title over Charlotte’s...

Mets Farm Report: Almonte Shines For Lucie, Gorski and Robles Are Hard Luck Losers Again

Now Mets sit idle until Friday. Bay starts re-hab.

All star game festivities are over.  Now we wait a year for the one in Citi Field. If you don’t have your season tickets the deadline past Tuesday so now you are like me and the rest of the fans and will pay through the nose to go.    Good times.  The Mets now chill until Friday nights contest with the Braves in Atlanta the start of a 6 game road trip.  As of right now with Gee in the

The Binghamton Buzz: Losing Streak Snapped, First Half Done

Ramblings From Henry and Fayette Streets The Week That Was: July 2nd – July 9th  The Binghamton Mets record in the week preceeding the mid-season break sent them into their mini-vacation on a positive note.  They ended their season long losing streak on Tuesday the third with a 3-2 win over the Altoona Curve, and all told went 5-and-3 on the week.  After their win on Tuesday...

Mets Are Better Than Sex AND The Phillies

Our friends at the Mets Are Better Than Sex get all the credit for uncovering this gem. It’s audio of Phillies announcer, Scott Franzke, going off on the Mets’ Scott Hairston last week during the series at Citi Field. Apparently he didn’t realize his mic was live when he exclaimed the following after a Hairston home run. “Will somebody figure out how to f***ing get Scott...

When the Disabled List is the Best Case Scenario

As a human, Dillon Gee is recovering from a blood clot in his throwing shoulder. I'm pleased that the Mets medical staff caught this quickly and that Dillon can recover from this because blood clots are as scary as it gets. I'm not a doctor, but this is as close to a relevant case that I could find on the internet (granted, I haven't looked too long.) As a pitcher, Dillon...

Tony La Russa screws over R.A. Dickey and David Wright

Tony La Russa's wrongheaded All-Star decisions have unfairly penalized not just R.A. Dickey, but also David Wright, and they have rewarded Giants fans for stuffing the ballot box.Buster Posey did not deserve to start at catcher over Carlos Ruiz and Yadier Molina. But because Giants fans voted Posey in, La Russa names another Giant who shouldn't be starting, Matt Cain, as...

Matt Cain, Not R.A. Dickey, Will Start All-Star Game

It must be great to be a San Francisco Giants fan. Not only did a late push of fan votes elect three starting position players (Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera) to the NL lineup, but now the Giants will also have Matt Cain as the starting pitcher. John Harper of the New York Daily News tweeted at 9:23 a.m. that “Source says Dickey is not starting All-Star Game....

Mets’ R.A. Dickey Should be All-Star Game Starter

With the MLB All-Star game a day away, the starting pitchers and lineups have been announced. The starting pitcher for the American League is Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers. The starter opposing him for the National League is Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants. I have an issue with Cain being the starter [...]

What’s on my mind: Should the Mets go with a four-man rotation?

The New York Mets are just 4.5 games behind the Nationals and we could all agree that they may actually have a chance to make it to the postseason. For that to happen though, they have to upgrade their bullpen. Their bullpen ranks last in ERA (4.94) and sports the eigth worst FIP (4.03), making it a very vulnerable bullpen. On the other hand, their starting rotation owns the third...

Alderson On Chemistry, Valdespin, Trade Market, Harvey, Wheeler

Sandy Alderson was a guest during the sixth inning of this afternoon’s SNY Cubs vs. Mets broadcast. Gary Cohen hit him up with some great questions in the short time that he had, and ended up getting some nice insights into what the Mets GM is thinking about regarding a wide range of topics. Matt Harvey: Alderson believes that Matt Harvey could be a viable option for the rotation...
