Mets Morning News: Ike heads to Vegas, all hail Satin

New York Mets news and links for June 11, 2013

With no loss to the Marlins to write about yesterday, we still found a few things worth writing about here at AA. The first was the lengthy interview that Sandy Alderson did with WFAN, in which he talked about Zack Wheeler, Ike Davis, and others.

This date in Mets history saw the team win a couple of extra-inning games that ended better than the Marlins game(s).

If you haven't been keeping tabs on the Mets lately (and it's hard to blame you), here's a look at which pitchers are hot and which pitchers are not.

Two more draftees were profiled yesterday, as Alex looked at Ricky Knapp and Patrick Biondi.

FanGraphs' Jeff Sullivan took a little closer look at Ike Davis, now of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51's.

Around Baseball

It was a quiet night in the NL East, with none of the Mets, Phillies, or Nationals playing. The Marlins did though, and weren't playing a team from Queens, so naturally they lost.

The Braves managed to plate six runners yesterday, but it still wasn't enough to overcome the mighty Padres. There was also some discussion at Baseball Nation about what they should do with their rotation.

The Red Sox were involved in an extra inning affair last night, despite seeing all of their first eight batters reach base.

Grant Brisbee had a humorous read about several 2013 draftees he hopes to see in the big leagues. He had me at 'Fukofuka'.
