Mets Merized Online:
Is there a point where a player becomes too good for the level they are at, and at the same time it becomes counterproductive to stay at that level? Seems like a rhetorical question, and if so, has Zack Wheeler reached that point pitching for the Binghamton Mets? In his last three starts he has been lights out, dominant over a majority of the Double A batters he has faced. Has he reached a point in his development where to further that development, not stagnate it, he needs to move up a level? Rightfully so, the New York Mets are going to take their time with the organizations top prospect, but for Wheeler to develop further shouldn’t his move to the Buffalo Bisons be sooner rather than later?
Wheeler’s numbers have been more than impressive this season, especially since his return from a short stint on the DL at the beginning of May. In the nine games he has started this season, he lost two of his first four, and had a no decision in the other two of those four. In the next ...

All of the New York Mets were absolutely ecstatic over Johan Santana’s masterful pitching dominance that gave the franchise it’s first no-hitter in over 50 years. I wouldn’t say they were full, hard-on erection excited, but from the looks of the post-game interview with coincidentally Mets starter R.A. Dickey, they were pleasantly plump.
During tonight’s post game interview, Terry Collins announced that outfielder Mike Baxter suffered a displaced right collar bone and an injured rib. He is expected to miss about six weeks.
Baxter slammed into the left field wall after making a tremendous catch to preserve Johan Santana’s no-hitter in the seventh inning. He awoke to a lot of pain this morning as a result.
JUST ONE EXCEPTION
A St. Louis newspaper gave an asterisk to Johan Santana's no-hitter against the Cardinals. See what their reason was.
Lets assume for a moment or hypothesize that the Mets will in fact make a genuine offer to David Wright whenever they deem themselves ready to do so at some point this season.
Let’s further assume that it will be a genuine offer, not a vaguely worded statement to the press about parameters that may have been done via fax, text or email and certainly not in person. A box of chocolates...
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that starting pitcher Chris Young is expected to remain with Triple-A Buffalo for one or two more starts as Sandy Alderson predicted earlier in the week.
Young took a huge step toward re-joining the Mets rotation after he tossed six scoreless innings yesterday in a start for Triple-A Buffalo. The 33-year old right-hander threw 87 pitches and...
Johan Santana's no-hitter came at a cost to the New York Mets.
Injured outfielder Mike Baxter is expected to miss about six weeks after crashing into the fence while making an outstanding catch to preserve Santana's no-hitter Friday night against St. Louis. And reliever Ramon Ramirez is likely headed to the disabled list as well after straining his right hamstring during...
Congratulations Mets fans. The wait is finally over, and it feels good. It was great to be able to see some Mets history being made, but I couldn’t help noticing how much attention there was surrounding Johan Santana’s pitch count. I know he’s coming off a serious shoulder surgery, but was there ever really a question about whether he would have been pulled from that...
NEW YORK -- Mike Baxter gingerly pulled his T-shirt over his body, his left shoulder still tender from the aftermath of a catch that helped the team he grew up cheering make history. Baxter, who grew up in the Whitestone neighborhood of Queens, made the play of the game Friday night in Johan Santana's no-hitter, the Mets' first in 50 years. With one out in the seventh...
Johan Santana? More like No-han Santana, amirite? (*Rimshot. "I'll be here all week."*)
Santana tossed the first no-no in the history of the Metropolitans Friday night in an 8-0 victory over the Cardinals. It took Johan a career-high 134 pitches to complete the task and he was also aided by an incorrect call in the 6th inning.
Carlos Beltran's liner in that...

With the no-hitter by the Mets, the San Diego Padres are the remaining franchise in Major League Baseball to have yet to throw a no-no.
As the Mets prepare to start a weekend set against the St. Louis Cardinals, all eyes will be on the return of Carlos Beltran, who comes into Citi Field with a blistering 15 homers to start the season.
The Mets plan to welcome Beltran with open arms, as a video package will air to honor the former Mets’ center fielder. Never in question was the reaction he’d get from the team...
