MIKE BAXTER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers acquire Colt Hynes from Indians for Duke von Schamann, DFA Mike Baxter

As a prospect hoarder, I’m not usually happy when the team trades a somewhat legitimate prospect for a 28-year-old lefty who has all of 17 innings pitched in the majors (and a 9.00 ERA — yay small sample sizes). But that’s (kinda) what happened on Sunday. The Dodgers sent Duke von Schamann to the Indians in exchange for left-handed reliever Colt Hynes. I think Mike said it...

Mike Baxter is having one heck of a week

New York Mets outfielder Mike Baxter is having one heck of a week. For the second time in the last three days, Baxter propelled the New York Mets to a victory with a walk-off RBI single.  The New York native drilled an 0-1 fastball up the middle, plating Marlon Byrd, as the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Thursday night. It was Baxter’s second walk-off hit of the season...

Mike Baxter starting outfielder – are you ready?

Jason Bay is gone, Scott Hairston’s return – at best – is up in the air and the Mets are extremely unlikely to add a big-time free agent. Which means that all of the stars have aligned for Mike Baxter to be a starting outfielder for the club in 2013. I think most people are in agreement that Baxter is a solid fourth outfielder and nice pinch-hitting option but hardly a...

Mike Baxter is heating up

For New York Mets fans, Mike Baxter will always be remembered for his remarkable catch in the seventh inning of Johan Santana historic night — the first no-hitter in franchise history.  When it seemed all but certain that Yadier Molina‘s long drive would end Santana’s chance at history, Baxter reached out and snagged the long fly, crashing hard into the left-field wall in...

Mike Baxter making the most of his time

What’s not to like about the Pride of Whitestone, Mike Baxter? The man could never play another single game again in his life and he’ll still be a celebrated Met for his lunging catch (which would knock him out of commission for a few weeks) that preserved the Mets’ first no-hitter thrown by Johan Santana. Aside from that terrific catch, Baxter is making a name for himself...

Mike Baxter makes an immediate impact upon return from DL

The Mets used 19 players in Monday’s 8-7 win in extra innings over the Giants. The 18th player used was Mike Baxter, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the top of the 10th and delivered a key single. Thanks to some strong baserunning by Jason Bay, the hit established runners on the corners with one out. Rob Johnson hit into a fielder’s choice to score the insurance...

Johan Santana gets Mets first no-hitter ever with help from blown call, Mike Baxter

Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in Mets franchise history on Friday in an 8-0 win over the Cardinals. Santana threw 133 pitches and walked five batters, but he managed to no-hit the best offense in the National League. Although he didn’t allow any hits, Santana’s game was far from perfect. In addition to the five walks, he got some help on an umpire’s blown call, and...
