AAA - Buffalo Bisons (3-3)_______________________________________


Not a ton to dissect here. Harvey was markedly better than last time out as he bumped his 56% strike rate on Opening Day up to a much more acceptable 66%. Now he's still clearly getting used to Triple-A baseball, but that's certainly nothing out of the ordinary. Remember, he allowed 13 runs in his first three starts in Double-A before posting a .218 opponent average over the final nine. Unfortunately a poorly-timed error/homer combo -- allowed by Lutz and Jeff Stevens respectively -- was all the Red Wings would need in this one (despite a monstrous Pascucci bomb).

  • 2B Jordany Valdespin: 1-5, CS(2)
  • 3B Zach Lutz: 1-4, 2 K, E(1); Depending on the severity of Wright's injury, there will certainly be more than a couple eyes on Lutz over the next few days
  • 1B Josh Satin: 1-4, R
  • RHP Matt Harvey: 5 IP, 2 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 WP; Once again a little uneven, showing flashes of dominance betrayed by bouts of wildness...though at 47 degrees, 22 mph wind and sporadic rain I'm still willing to chalk some up to weather

AA - Binghamton Mets (2-3)_____________________________________


The B-Mets have scored four runs in their four losses this season. That's pretty much all you need to know on a night when the lineup managed just three singles. Well also that the bullpen was pretty bad also; namely Holt and Carson. For the record, I really don't see either of these guys as much of a factor for a major league club down the road.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (4-1)________________________________________


All around good night for the lil' Mets who spread the wealth in this one, as six different Mets batters scored each of the six runs while starter Angel Cuan was masterful over seven scoreless. The 5'11" lefty doesn't blow away the scouts, yet continues to impress opposing batters as he climbs the ladder.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (3-3)__________________________________


Mets 2011 supplemental pick Michael Fulmer made his full season debut in this one and looked pretty good. In fact he had only allowed a pair of walks through four strong innings when he seemed to tire and allowed a couple runs in the fifth. Unfortunately, on a night when the Gnats offense managed just four hits and went 0-for-6 with RISP, that was enough for an L.

  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-4, 2B, K; Batting .208, slugging nearly .550
  • C Albert Cordero: 0-3, BB, K
  • DH Cam Maron: 0-4, K
  • CF Travis Taijeron: 0-4, K; You've got to love the power but this is the kind of game that worries me about the 23-yr old
  • LF Greg Pron: 0-3, R, BB, 2 SB(2), OF Assist; One of those was a theft of home
  • RHP Michael Fulmer: L, 4.2 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 WP; 6 groundouts vs 3 flyouts

Star of the Night

Pretty easy call. The honors go to St. Lucie's Angel Cuan for his seven scoreless innings last night. I just keep waiting for the level that will prove too much for him; something tells me we'll have to wait for a promotion to Double-A for the true test.

Goat of the Night
Bingo's Pedro Zapata took a tough 0-for-5 with a couple K's, made worse by the five men he left on base in their 6-1 defeat.
