New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Sunday May 16, 2010.
The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo

- 3B Mike Hessman: 0-3, R, BB, K (.306/.381/.672)
- DH Val Pascucci: 1-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K (.167/.167/.667); guy has two hits so far, both home runs

AA - Binghamton
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-5, K (.300/.300/.400); beware! the offensive malaise at Binghamton is contagious

- SS Wilmer Flores: 3-6, 2B, 2 BB (.364/.418/.589); only went 3-6—I'm a little disappointed
- LF Juan Lagares: 2-7, 2B, K (.303/.318/.527)
- DH Nick Santomauro: 0-0, BB (.133/.161/.167)
- 3B Jefrey Marte: 1-7, BB, K, SB (.223/.333/.330); also had another error, and Marte's prospect status is sinking
- RF Cesar Puello: 2-7, SB, CS (.233/.313/.271); also made a fielding error
- 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-7, 2 K (.248/.266/.358); it gets better: he also committed a throwing error and a fielding error

Star of the Night
I'm going to go with Wilmer Flores once again, who continues to destroy the baseball. He reached base in five of his eight plate appearances and hit a double. Had there been anyone to knock him in, maybe St. Lucie could've pulled out a victory in nine innings instead of a loss in 18. Wilmer already has 15 doubles in 164 at-bats to go along with two triples and five homeruns. The power is back, he's showing a little bit of patience, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he were among the first guys to earn a promotion this season. If he continues to hit as he has thus far, he's undoubtedly the Mets' top prospect, as Rob said the other day. An honorable mention goes to Savannah starter Armando Rodriguez, who threw seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits. He walked two and struck out three.
Goat of the Night: While Alonso Harris manages to find new ways to amaze me with his incompetence (seven hitless at-bats, two strikeouts, two errors), I'm giving this one to Binghamton reliever Clint Everts, who allowed five earned runs on three walks and two hits over an inning and a third. Confession: whenever I think of someone named Clint, they either look like Clint Eastwood or Clint Howard in my head. This morning Clint Everts looks like Clint Howard.
- Val Pascucci hit a solo homerun in the eighth to give Buffalo a 5-4 win. Buffalo swept the weekend series and took their fifth-straight victory.
- Binghamton roughed up former first-round pick and Stanford alum Jeremy Bleich but still lost 13-7. Scott Shaw was terrible and Clint Everts was worse. On the plus side, that Nick Evans guy looks pretty good.
- Jeurys Familia returned from the disabled list, Chris Schwinden provided five-plus solid innings, and St. Lucie scored two runs in the ninth inning on an Eric Campbell double to secure a 5-3 win over Daytona. Manuel Alvarez earned his ninth save and still hasn't given up an earned run while sporting a 24:5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
- Savannah played a marathon Sunday, losing to Augusta 1-0 in 18 innings. What was perhaps most impressive? The two teams had a combined 26 hits and managed only one run between them.
