August 20th 2014 -- Mets 8, A's 5

A Lucas Duda 3 run homer, highlighted a 5 run 3rd inning for the Mets Wednesday afternoon, the Mets beat the A’s in Oakland 8-5.  The Mets got out to a 7-2 lead in the 4th inning when Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy added RBI singles chasing A’s starter Jeff Samardzija  after 3 2/3.  A two run error on a inning ending grounder by Daniel Murphy allowed 2 runs to score for the A’s in the 4th.  Eric Campbell went 2 for 3 on the day with a solo homer, his 3rd on the year. Duda’s was his team leading 23rd. Zach Wheeler started for the Mets and struggled to get through his 5 2/3 innings. He allowed 4 hits, 4 runs (only 2 earned) walking 3 and striking out 3. Josh Edgin relieved Wheeler in the 6th and pitched into the 7th, Vic Black finished the inning. In the 8th Black was pulled and after allowing the 5th run when he walked Sam Fuld with the bases drunk. Jeurrys Familia came on and got out of a bases loaded jam to preserve the lead in the 8th and retired the side in the 9th for this 4th save.  Wheeler gets the win, his 6th straight and he now stands at 9-8 on they year, Smaradzija takes the loss falling to 5-10. With the win the Mets improve to 60-68 on the year and 30-36 on the road. Thursday is an off day. Friday night the Mets are in the southland to start a three game series against the Dodgers in Chavez Ravine. Jon Niese (7-8  3.50) goes for the Mets. The Dodgers starter is TBD.

D-Whit - It Was 45 Years Ago Today...Wednesday August 20th 1969


August 20th

New York continued their mastery over the left coast teams visiting Shea during this homestand, blanking the Giants 6 zip. Jim McAndrew went all the way for his 5th victory of the season and extending the Mets to 23 shutout innings over San Francisco in the series. 

After scoring single runs in the 1st and 2nd off Gaylord Perry, the Mets chased him from the game in the 5th thanks courtesy of Art Shamsky’s 3-run HR and Buddy Harrelson’s run-scoring triple off reliever Ray Sadecki. McAndrew scattered two hits over nine in his CG victory.

In Wrigley, the Cubs fell to Atlanta 6-2 so New York gained a game, moving to 7 back in the NL East.  

Binghamton Mets 2014 Game Notes


Binghamton Mets (77-52) vs.
Erie SeaWolves (64-65)
(Double-A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers)

RHP Gabriel Ynoa (2-1, 4.96) vs. LHP Josh Turley (3-2, 3.13)

Wednesday, August 20, 2014  Game #130  Road Game #67
Jerry Uht Park   Erie, PA  7:05 PM

LAST GAME: The Binghamton Mets gave up six runs in the fourth inning and never recovered in a 7-0 loss to the Erie SeaWolves on Tuesday night at Jerry Uht Park. Michael Fulmer surrendered six runs in 3.1 innings in his Double-A debut. Hansel Robles finished the game with three scoreless frames. The B-Mets were just 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and were shutout for the second time in three games. Dilson Herrera and Wilfredo Tovar each managed two-hit performances. Binghamton’s magic number to clinch a playoff spot dropped to two thanks to a New Britain loss. They fell to two games back of Portland for first place in the Eastern Division.

BINGHAMTON STARTERRHP Gabriel Ynoa makes his ninth start of the season and his second straight against Erie. The righty gave up four runs on a season-high 11 hits in 6.2 innings on Thursday, August 14. He didn’t factor into the decision in a 9-4 Binghamton win. Ynoa is 1-0 with a 5.60 ERA in three starts against the SeaWolves this season. He’s allowed eleven runs on 29 hits in 17.2 frames. The 21-year-old has given up three home runs in those games. Ynoa has walked just eight batters in 45.1 innings this season. The La Vega, Dominican Republic native was signed by the Mets as a minor league free agent on November 19, 2009.

ERIE STARTER: LHP Josh Turley  takes the hill for the seventh time this season and the first time against Binghamton. The southpaw tossed six innings of one run ball and struck out six in his last outing against Altoona. He didn’t factor into the decision as Erie won 3-2 in ten innings  on Friday, August 22. It was the fourth time that Turley has allowed two or les runs in a start. He’s surrendered at least five hits in five of his outings in 2014. Turley was  taken in the 16th round of the 2012 draft out of Baylor.

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN: Binghamton and Erie meet for the final time on Wednesday. The 22 matchups are more than they play against any team this season. The B-Mets are 12-9 against the SeaWolves in 2014. That includes a 6-3 mark at Jerry Uht Park.  Binghamton is hitting .307 against the Erie through the first 21 games. They have 24 home runs and 49 doubles  in those meetings. On the pitching side, they’ve given up 82 earned runs in 178.2 innings

GET THE CHAMPAGNE READY?: Binghamton’s magic number to clinch a playoff spot stands at two. The team is second in the Eastern Division and has a 12.5 game lead over New Britain for the final postseason position. With a win and a Rock Cats loss , the B-Mets would punch their ticket to the postseason on Wednesday. They dropped to two games back of Portland for first place in the division with Tuesday’s loss.

TRAVIS TAMES THE SEAWOLVES: Binghamton OF Travis Taijeron went 1-for-3  in Tuesday’s loss. He’s hitting .350 (21-for-60) against Erie this season. The slugger has an OPS of 1.118 in those games. He has five home runs and six doubles in 16 matchups in 2014.

FINISHING ON TOP: The B-Mets have a chance to finish their road trip 5-2, on Friday. It would improve their mark to 10-3 over their last two road trips. The team is 37-29 away from NYSEG Stadium in 2014. They have one more road trip left in the regular season. The team ends the year with a four-game set at Richmond.

NO DOG DAYS FOR DARRELL: Binghamton OF Darrell Ceciliani is riding an eight-game hitting streak. He’s hitting .349 (22-for-63) in 15 games in August with three doubles, a triple and ten runs scored. He has a base knock in all but one game this month. That includes seven multi-hit performances.

Fangraphs - OF - Vincente Lupo


Vicente Lupo, the Mets prospect pictured in the right part of this picture, is exhibiting considerable emotion. Is it because:
  1. He realized only after waiting in line at the DMV that he’d neglected to bring either his checkbook or the requisite amount of cash to renew his license; or
  2. His parents just related, in unnecessarily graphic detail, the circumstances leading to his conception; or
  3. He accidentally read a James Joyce novel; or
  4. His hands, which are transplants from a deceased murderer, are attempting to strangle him; or
  5. His hands, which are transplants from a deceased murderer, smell terrible?

Reese Kaplan - How Many Other Clubs Have 26 Year Old Rookies?

A question I asked last year came to mind once again regarding when is it the right time to promote younger players from the minors to the majors?  The problem as I see it is that the Mets organization has taken a firm philosophical stance that a player must have X number of innings or Y number of ABs in the minors before they are deemed ready for the majors. 

Standards are a wonderful thing when you’re dealing with finite things like processes.  “We cannot have more than 1/10th of 1% defects on the manufacturing line.”  The last time I looked, however, the game of baseball is played by PEOPLE and not by machines.  People are different.  There are early bloomers and late bloomers, early faders and people like Bartolo Colon who are still productive while most others his age have gone onto the baseball card show autograph circuit. 

I did some preliminary research and discovered something.  The last time the Mets had the honor of having the youngest player in the big leagues on their opening day roster was 30 years ago when Dwight Gooden came north with the club at age 19.  You know, if you look at the statistics regarding his performance (before his lifestyle became an issue), it sure didn’t look like this early promotion harmed him one bit. 

In fact, as I perused the list of youngest players in the majors for the past 30 years, there were quite a few standouts for whom an early promotion did not seem to damage their tender psyches or get overwhelmed by the new level of competition.  In fact, you could field a pretty decent All-Star team from this list:

Jose Rijo
Gary Sheffield
Pudge Rodriguez
Alex Rodriguez
CC Sabathia
Felix Hernandez
Rick Porcello
Chris Sale
Mike Trout
Jurickson Profar

Greg Maddux
Steve Avery
Cliff Floyd
Andruw Jones
Adrian Beltre
Matt Cain
Justin Upton
Clayton Kershaw
Madison Bumgarner
Starlin Castro
Bryce Harper
Jose Fernandez
Javier Baez

The babying of pitchers hasn’t seemed to have helped, either.  In fact, the trend now is alarmingly towards more injuries and more Tommy John surgeries than happened back in the day when pitchers completed games and weren't on pitch counts, innings limits or shut down in the middle of a pennant race.  Once again clubs are trying to place one set of rules as if every individual was identical.

With respect to the Mets, there seems to be a trend in the opposite direction – artificially holding players down in the minors longer than necessary (to say nothing of not playing them once they make the big club).  As an example, Wilmer Flores has been with the organization for 7.5 years and just this month finally got the opportunity to play steadily while healthy.  The results have not been good thus far, but it’s probably fair to say you develop quite a bit of rust when your manager only penciled you into the lineup less than once a week. 

Now sometimes late promotions are due to health issues.  Jacob de Grom and Steve Matz are examples of players whose careers got sidetracked by injuries.  Pitchers in particular seem to need to have some time to develop command as we’re seeing with Noah Syndergaard this year as he’s struggled for the first time.  On the other hand, when you have someone like Rafael Montero who, before his injury, was exhibiting all of his usual stellar control, there was no reason to hold him down in the minors as long as they did at the expense of John Lannan, Kyle Farnsworth, Jose Valverde and others of that ilk.  You saw last week what Montero can do when he’s healthy. 

For batters you would assume it’s the breaking stuff and movement that gets better at each level and it takes some time to adjust.  Many people can hit a flat fastball, even one thrown near triple digits.  However, when the pitches break left, right or drop down it’s a whole new ballgame.  Still, why is it that other clubs see fit to promote 19 year olds while the Mets typically wait an additional 4-5 years before declaring someone possibly ready for the majors? 

To be fair, in the entire history of the ballclub you could probably count on one hand with fingers left over the number of solid offensive players they’ve developed.  That’s a topic for another day.  Still, if you’re not going to improve the roster through trades nor acquire in-their-prime free agents or test the international waters from Cuba or Japan, then you should be doing what you can to get players up to the show rather than filling the roster with has-beens whose best days are behind them.   Marlon Byrd was a great story, but Rick Ankiel, Andres Torres, Collin Cowgill, Chin-lung Hu, Danny Herrera, Ramon Ramirez, Kelly Shoppach, Aaron Laffey, Brad Eamus, Ronny Paulino, Rob Johnson and others were not.  

Going forward for 2015 I’d like to see the following happen:

  • Give Matt Reynolds a chance.  He was hitting .355 before the PCL and .340 in it. 
  • Fast-track Dilson Herrera to the majors.  If he can’t handle it, there’s always AAA waiting for him.
  • Fast-track Michael Conforto.  Get him into AA as soon as possible to see how he handles better pitching.
  • Fast-track Steve Matz.  That enables you to consider trading your sole lefty, Jon Niese.
  • Trade Daniel Murphy.  As a baserunner and a fielder he’s a pretty good hitter.  Sell high.
  • Trade Bartolo Colon.  Unless you want him to be the next pitching coach, spend his salary on LF or SS.
  • Don’t be afraid to sell Dillon Gee or Noah Syndergaard or Kevin Plawecki. 
  • Find some outfielders somewhere!  Curtis Bay gets another year to show if he’s done or not.  LF is a black hole.  Fill it with a professional slugger. 
  • Hopefully a winter off will allow David Wright to heal.  Either he’s too stubborn (or his manager is) to recognize that his ailing shoulder is affecting his swing.  You’re stuck with him until 2020, so don’t make a bad situation worse by running him into the ground.
  • For Tom Brennan:  Bring in the fences.  It’s a change that benefits both clubs’ offense equally but with a great crop of young pitchers, the Mets still will be at an advantage over most of their competitors. 
  • Finally, get a real manager.


MMs Top 25: #15 3B/OF Dustin Lawley


#15 3B/OF Dustin Lawley (LR: #17)
Bats: R Throws: R
Height: 6' 1" Weight: 205 lb
Age: 25
Acquired: 2011 Rule 4 Draft, 19th Round, University of West Florida

2014: (AA) .226/.280/.436, 20 HR, 63 RBI, 4 SB (57%), 30 BB, 127 K
2013: (A/AAA) .262/.314/.513, 26 HR, 96 RBI, 6 SB (67%), 36 BB, 113 K
2012: (A) .261/.333/.434, 14 HR, 66 RBI, 14 SB (78%), 50 BB, 122 K
2011: (R/A) .284/.323/.510, 10 HR, 44 RBI, 5 SB (50%), 14 BB, 52 K

     Lawley forced his way onto the list last year with a highly impressive 2013 campaign in Port St. Lucie but this season has been a little more of a struggle for Lawley statistical wise. Hitting in the middle of the Binghamton batting order, Lawley is only batting .226 with a meager .280 OBP and an astonishingly bad 28.5% K rate.

     However, hitting for average and taking walks has never been Lawley's style of play. He's a masher who is expected to hit HR's and drive guys in. From that viewpoint, he's doing a fantastic job still. Almost 50% of his base hits this season are of the "extra" variety and, while his Isolated power rate is down, it still stands at an equally impressive .209.

     Defensively, Lawley has been getting a majority of his time at 3B but has begun to struggle with his throws. In only 68 games played, he's committed 17 errors. Long term wise, he still profiles better in the OF where he plays adequate defense and has the offensive firepower to stick in the corners. If he can cut his K rate back down to the low 20% range his average should creep back up to the .250 - .260 range which, with his power, could turn him in a big power bat that could slot in the 5th spot in anyone's line-up.

August 19th 2014 -- A's 6, Mets 2

Tuesday night in Oakland, Coco Crisp’s three run triple highlighted a 4 run 4th inning, the A’s beat the Mets 6-2. The Mets got off to a 1-0 lead in the 3rd when Travis d’Arnaud hit a line drive homer over the right-centerfield fence for this 11th homer off A’s starter Scott Kazmir.  In the bottom of the 4th the A’s tied it off Dillon Gee with a bases loaded sac-fly by Albert Callaspo. Then after a walk to Eric Sogard,  Coco Crisp cleared the bases with a line drive triple down the right field line to make it 4-1. The Mets made it 4-2 in the top of the 7th when Anthony Recker doubled home Wilmer Flores with the Mets final run.  Josh Reddick clubbed a 2 run blast in the (9) bottom of the 8th to cap the scoring. The good news is the Mets finally broke their string of games with only 4 hits at 5. They collected 7 hits on the night. The bad news is the Mets drop to 59-68 on the year.  Gee went 5 2/3 allowing just 8 hits 4 runs (all earned) walking 2 and striking out 4. He falls to 4-6.  Former Met Kazmir earned his career high 14th win on the season.  Eric Campbell getting the start in left led the Mets going 2 for 4, Gonzalez Germen in his first outing since his recall allowed 2 runs in the 8th on the Reddick homer. The Mets are now 29-36 on the road. Wednesday afternoon it’s the final game of this two game set.  Zack Wheeler (8-8  3.49) goes for the Mets Jeff Samardzija (5-9  2.96) goes for Oakland. 

Morning Report – August 20th – Mets/Cubs Trade Possibilities, September Call-Ups


Well, the Mets and the Cubs have completed their four game schedule and both teams can move on to their next objective; however, not everyone is going to look to perform their duties while facing a different team.

Scouts from both teams will continue to follow each other… the Mets scouts will go to Chicago to scout out the series against San Francisco while the Cubs scouts will have to travel out to Oakland for the next Mets series.

Every Met beat reporter out there is running out of material so it’s easy to write about the two teams that match up the best for a future trade. The Mets have an excess of young starters while the Cubs have too many middle infielders.

So, why can’t anything get done here?

Well, Joel Sherman offered up some insight from one of the baseball executives out there:

An NL executive described the Mets this way: “They don’t make a lot of trades and that is because they really don’t like to give up what they perceive as their big talent, unless they can convince you to give them $2 for their 35 cents.”

So lies the two-fold problem.

1.     Baseball executives from other clubs like to make fun of Sandy Alderson and the Mets

2.     Other General Managers no longer like negotiating with him for anything

A trade in which the Mets obtain an infielder from the Cubs for a starting pitcher from the Mets is not supposed to be a ‘who won and who lost’ situation. The Cubs know they aren’t going to get Matt Harvey here and the Mets can forget about Javier Baez.
All you have to do is decide which of the Cubbies you want to go after… Starlin Castro, Arismendy Alcantara, or Addison Russell. It seemed to me that the Cubs did everything they could to showcase Alcantara these past four days, including  featuring him as a .210 leadoff man.

The 24-yr. old Castro (yes, he’s only 24) is once again hitting above .280, something he now has done in four of the five season he has started for the Cubs. He does leave a lot on the field when it comes to defense, which is probably the last thing I would hope the Mets would target on (another sub-par defensive shortstop).

This leaves you Russell, who hit 17 home runs in A+ ball last season, but fell to only one homer for Oakland before being traded to Chicago. He since has added eight more at the AA level (in 143-AB). His ETA to the major league level would not be until 2016. Not exactly what the Mets had in mind here.

So that’s about it.

A guy with a lot of letters in his name that isn’t lighting up the world, the testy, sub-par defensive guy with a lengthy contract or the Wilmer Flores clone who is a year away.

And what Mets pitchers line up with each of these guys?

You know Chicago would demand either Syndergaard or Wheeler for Castro.
Is giving up deGrom worth the risk of Russell?

And is either Montero, Niese, or Gee, the right more for the now being converted to the outfield Alcantara?

See… it’s not easy being Sandy, is it?

Me? I pass and move on to Arizona…

Fangraphs like to rank players by position. This is a sort of mid-season update, by tiers (one being outstanding):

            Tier 3

Ike Davis
Joey Votto (if healthy)?
Brandon Moss
Mike Napoli
Lucas Duda

Davis hasn’t been very good over the past year, slashing .209/.313/.430. I wanted to drop him further, but that felt like an overreaction considering the 2012-2013. He’s probably never going to be as good as he was last year again, but it feels like he should at least be a little better than this.

I might be a little high on Duda, but oh well. His average leaves a little to be desired, but his power’s made up the difference thus far. And he’s seemingly on an upward trend, which is nice. Considering his platoon issues, slotting him into the tier below isn’t indefensible. http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/2014-first-base-tier-rankings-august/

Mack –Are you telling me the author couldn’t take the time to position Davis on the bottom of this ranking? The ‘keep the Dude, sell the Davis’ move has turned out to be an outstanding move even if both Zack Thornton and Blake Taylor don’t pan out. Duda has settled into the starting first baseman for the Mets and will remain there until possibly being tested by Dom Smith in 2017 earliest. He’s on his way to 30 home runs this season with a .350+ OBP and a .830+ OPS.

And one more thing… he’s become a pretty decent defensive first baseman.

No I’m very happy with this decision and I have to give Sandy Alderson all the credit on this one

Travis d'Arnaud has a .726 OPS in August on a .190 BABIP ..

Mike Vorkunov of The Star Ledger featured an article on the six Mets minor leaguers he wants called up in September. In no particular order, they are Matt Reynolds (holy shit… I never heard of him, Thomas!), Noah Syndergaard, Allan Dykstra, Anthony Serratelli, Kevin Plawecki, and, for some reason, a return of Bobby Abreu.

I’ve love to see Reynolds, but I wouldn’t want it to take away from the time Wilmer Flores is currently getting on short.

I’m just downright scared to death of pitching Syndergaard anywhere close to his pitch limit. He is the one true trade chip for a legitimate bat we have currently in the system.

And promoting Plawecki (or Juan Centeno) would be a great idea designed to give Travis d’Arnaud some off time for the remainder of the season. Plawecki’s bout with vertigo did two things… it killed his AAA stat line and slowed down his trade chip status. Any positive exposure at the end of the season would be a good thing.
