A LOOGY bites the dust as the Mets cut Robert Carson

Two down and two to go! Yesterday the Mets cut ties with a couple of lefty relievers in Robert Carson and Sean Henn. Originally, the previous line said lousy lefty relievers but it was not fair to use that word to describe Henn in 2013. While he walked the ballpark – 32 BB in 57.2 IP – in Las Vegas, he had an impressive 2.81 ERA in Triple-A and followed that up with a similar...

Mets Matters: The Beginning of the Purge

A few fringe major leaguers were removed from the Mets 40 man roster on Thursday. Not a single tear was shed onto my iPhone when I read that Mike Baxter, Robert Carson, Sean Henn, and Greg Burke were no longer Mets. No one can argue that the current roster of the New York Mets was the one taking us to the promised land. These last few lean years were the holdover years. Sandy needed...

Hold your nose, Frank Francisco is coming back

Since Matt Harvey’s season-ending injury the Mets have made six moves to add pitchers to the roster. The list starts with the maddening Daisuke Matsuzaka and continues with Robert Carson, Vic Black, Tim Byrdak, Sean Henn and Frank Francisco. MetsBlog reports the team is likely to add Greg Burke and Aaron Harang in the near future. Five of the six pitchers who were promoted to New...

51s Knocked Out Of Playoffs With 4-3 Loss To Salt Lake

Salt Lake 4, Las Vegas 3 They had their chances… they had their chances. The 51s went 3-for-14 with RISP today with chances to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth and ninth en route to losing, 4-3, and finding themselves eliminated at the hands of Salt Lake. The 51s had a pretty solid season and Wally Backman should be given a hell of a lot of credit for working with a ridiculous...

51s Lose Second Straight Via Walk-Off, 5-4, Down Two Games In Series

Salt Lake 5, Las Vegas 4 It’s tough to be Robert Carson right now. After surrendering a two-out, walk-off home run in Game One to Salt Lake the night before, he was unable to hold a tie yet again when he allowed the game winning run to cross the plate on a sacrifice fly last night. To be fair, he was hurt by a crucial passed ball in a ninth inning that turned a lead-off single...

Mets Minors Moves: Familia in PSL, Black, Lutz, and Byrdak to DC, Carson Back to Vegas

The Mets have made a few roster moves today (and yesterday, for that matter). Here’s a summary of everything I can see that’s going on: New York is still hoping they’ll see Jeurys Familia back in the bullpen before 2013 comes to a close. He took a step closer to doing that today in PSL. He threw an inning for St. Lucie in their season-ending 16-0 blowout victory. He allowed...

Dustin Lawley Promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas

With the ensuing roster shakeups throughout the organization, the recent promotions of Robert Carson, Matt den Dekker, and Anthony Recker have left Wally Backman‘s clubhouse reasonably bare as the 51s push toward a playoff berth in the Pacific Coast League. So, to help out Las Vegas a little bit, FSL Player of the Year Dustin Lawley is making the jump from High-A to Triple-A, according...

51s Continue Winning Ways With 2-1 Win Over Fresno

Las Vegas 2, Fresno 1 The 51s won yet another game — this time behind Matt Fox, who turned in seven stellar innings of one-run ball to pick up his seventh win of the year. Robert Carson and Greg Burke combined for the final six outs while allowing just two hits — and walking none. In fact, Fox didn’t walk any batters either, which worked out well for them the entire game. He...

Predicting 2013 September Call-Ups

Here are my predictions for who that young talent will be. Pitchers Giancarlo Alvarado – Heard the name? Probably not. Alvarado, although...

Make no mistake: Mets must make trade for big bat

Minor moves. Major problem. That sentiment is essentially what the Mets hinted towards their fans this week when they demoted Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson to Las Vegas while designating Rick Ankiel for assignment. The constant underperforming and lackluster baseball finally caught the wrath of GM Sandy Alderson. No more will there be any coddling or nurturing of their...

Ike Davis debuted with the Las Vegas 51s on Tuesday night and faced similar struggles but also marked improvements. The 26-year-old Davis struck out twice in five plate appearances but also drew two walks, one of which was imperative in leading the 51s to an 8-6 victory over Tacoma. Davis stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth and represented the tying run after Andrew Brown...

Prior to Tuesday’s game, the Mets will recall LHP Josh Edgin from AAA to replace Robert Carson on the roster. The fact that Edgin is coming back to the big leagues makes no sense whatsoever. In Las Vegas, Edgin put up a 5.91 ERA and in AA Binghamton he put up a 7.88 ERA. In the minors this year, he has a WHIP of 1.661. Edgin is a guy who dominated the minors as recently as last...
