AAA - Buffalo Bisons (17-23)_______________________________________

BUFFALO 1, INDIANAPOLIS 10 (Box) The Bisons' opening day RF, 1B, 2B, SS, and SP are now in Queens, their 3B is hurt, and a preferred OF (Duda) was hurt and is now hurt again. Not a lot for Teufel to work with, at least until Hu and Igarashi come and make it all better. The Herd's only run scored in a hitless sixth inning. Josh Stinson was tossing meatballs.

AA - Binghamton Mets (13-22)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 1, NEW HAMPSHIRE 7 (Box) Bingo hit the ball thrice, walked six times;  Brandon Moore followed a couple of scoreless gems with his second consecutive wretched start.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (23-14)________________________________________

BREVARD COUNTY 19, ST. LUCIE 9 (Box) Wow. At least there's the excuse that Stoner is in rehab rehabbing and the Mets lit up the scoreboard themselves. Against the fearsome Manatees, the Mets were 4-7 with RISP and Wilmer knocked his second home run of the year. The game was actually knotted at eight after six innings. But Tobi gave way to a bullpen of Powers and Moria who saw his eight earned and raised him eleven. Reminds me of a punch line to a joke I've forgotten: Oh, the huge Manatee!

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (18-20)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 4, CHARLESTON 9 (Box) And a nice little coda. Note the Ceciliani and Vaughn home runs. Love those guys.

 Star of the Night 

Savannah short stop Robbie Shields gets the nod for a three hit night with a stolen base. The Mets' 3rd round pick in '09 is off to a very strong start (.280/.370/.472, 7 steals, 2 homers), raising his stock considerably after a poor Brooklyn debut and a 2010 season interrupted by Tommy John surgery. With seven errors he's been a bit wobbly at short, but scouts have long seen second base in his future. If he plays to his early-pick potential (big if), he'll have plenty of bat for it.

Goat of the Night

The Organization. Also, Rule 5 pick Ronny Morla for his "relief work" in St. Lucie (2 IP, 8 ER).
