Mets Merized Online:
Mets top prospect Zack Wheeler was shelled for ten hits and six runs (five earned) in four innings today in Binghamton where the B-Mets were hosting the New Britain Rock Cats.
For Wheeler it was his second straight bad outing. On July 20, the right-hander was lit up for eight earned runs in 3.2 innings by Bowie, having allowed six hits and three walks.
It was rumored yesterday that Wheeler could be heading to Buffalo to replace Matt Harvey, but that never happened and these last two performances could give the organization some reason to pause.
In four of his last six starts, Wheeler has allowed five or more earned runs. In that span he has allowed 25 runs in 37.2 innings.

As expected, the Mets have announced that they have optioned Lucas Duda to Triple-A Buffalo.
Duda was batting .241/.335/.391 in in 89 games with a dozen home runs and 44 RBI. Duda drew 42 walks and struck out 94 times in 307 at-bats this season, almost a third of the time.
The big guy was mired in a horrendous slump in July that forced Terry Collins to start using other options...
Oh no, not another Joe D. game recap…
Embrace the horror my friends. Nothing we do now will change anything. The time to strike was when the Mets were winning and they needed a general manager who could sustain that glorious run when the Mets never spent a day under ,500 and staked a solid claim on the National League Wild Card. You snooze, you lose. Sandman fell asleep at the...

The New York Mets may be the biggest fan of MTV’s reality TV show Jersey Shore. First, on Monday night cast member Nicole Polizzi, "Snooki," attended a Mets game only to receive a drowning amount of boos from the New York faithful. Now on August 8, Paul DelVecchio, best know as "DJ Pauly D," will be spinning postgame music at Citi Field. After getting off to...
The New York Mets were initially reluctant to promote their first-round draft pick from two years ago, but desperation is setting in.
The free-falling Mets are calling up highly touted Matt Harvey, hoping that in his major league debut the right-hander can help the team to its first victory in seven contests Thursday night in the opener of a four-game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks...
The future arrived at Citi Field on Monday, eager to begin his New York Mets career. But before losing an 8-2, 10-inning game to the Nationals at Citi Field, the Mets spent most of their breath cautioning fans not to expect too much out of top prospect Matt Harvey right away. "We've tried to make an effort to temper expectations, in part because we can't, nor...

Former Bisons pitcher Matt Harvey will make his MLB debut tonight in Arizona when the New York Mets take on the Diamondbacks.
He’ll go up against Wade Miley who is 11-5 with a 3.02 ERA on this year in Arizona.
Harvey, the 7th overall pick of the 2010 MLB Draft was 7-5 in Buffalo this year with a 3.68 ERA.
As a highly regarded prospect, Harvey was constantly the topic of discussion...
I thought I was prepared for Thursday's game. I purposely used aromatherapy shampoo before the game to relieve stress and promote harmony in my psyche (and my scalp). And for the most part, it worked. It was a very workmanlike, stress free performance by Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals from where I was sitting in left-center field. No ninth inning meltdowns, no dropped pop...
Look, I’m aware that the Nationals are a very good team with excellent pitching, but ONE GAME isn’t too much to ask is it?
Stephen Strausburg looked dominant today in the Nationals 5-2 win over the Mets, their second consecutive 5-2 victory over the Mets. In a nod to consistency, this is the third straight game against the Nationals that the Mets have scored two runs. At...
Nationals 5, Mets 2: Ho-hum, just another series win for the Nats. Gio Gonzalez makes up for last time out against R.A. Dickey, dominates Mets. Sorry, Mr. Met.
Gio's line: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 87 pitches, 53 strikes.
Oh deer! Adam LaRoche hits a bomb into the upper deck. Video here.
Bryce Harper: 0-4, 3 K vs. Dickey...
