Alonso Named League Player of the Week

Press Release

BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton Rumble Ponies infielder Peter Alonso has been named the Eastern League Player of the Week. From April 23 through April 29, the Ponies slugging first baseman hit a league-best .545 (12-for-22) and compiled a 1.136 slugging percentage. Alonso has homered in four consecutive games and shares the league lead with seven home runs this season.

Alonso is the first Rumble Pony to take home a weekly league honor this season.



In a season where the Mets have several deserving offensive players who will be squeezed for playing time, one rescue point is interleague away games. 

In those games, the Mets will get to field 9 hitters, not 8, offering a little safety valve for hitters' frustration at getting in the lineup.

Of course, that does not come until July: 2 games with the Blue Jays (July 3, 4); 3 with the Bronx Bombers (July 20-22); 2 with the Orioles (August 14-15); and 3 with the Red Sox.  We do have a few interleague games in May, but those are at Citifield against Curtis Granderson's Toronto Jaybirds.

Having those 10 games will add a little more offensive intrigue.  the underused Flores may start several more times.  WIL-MER!

Yeah, but...

But, but, but...the Mets' main goal is to get to the playoffs, and it is frustrating and fatiguing to have to pair off against above-average AL teams for so many games.  

How many games?  The BIG TWO-OH, that's how many.

Yankees - 6 games

Blue Jays - 4 games

Orioles - 4 games

Red Sox - 3 games

Tampa - 3 games

Bleacher Reports recently added their projected wins in 2018 for each team above.

Yanks? 100. 

Red Sox?  96. 

Blue Jays?  85.  

Orioles?  81. 

Tampa?  65. 

They may have the Orioles (8-20 so far) and Tampa (12-14 so far) mixed up, but what exactly, based on Bleacher Reports, is the  weighted average of the teams' projections?

87.4 wins and 74.6 losses, or .540 baseball. 

Since the average team's win - loss % is immutably .500, the Mets are scheduled to face a collectively much more difficult than average group of interleague teams in 2018.

Wouldn't it be nice if, somehow, as the Mets pursue the pennant, the AL teams that the Mets play instead had the opposite projected win - loss %, a meager .460.  

Such a difference could perhaps be worth about 4 more wins, as it seems to me that the Mets could go 12-8 against .460 teams, but only 8-12 against .540 teams.

How about 6 vs. lowly Tampa, and just 3 against the Yanks?

Should I just not care, and when we miss the playoffs by 2 games, think about how great those interleague games were, especially the ones we got shellacked in?  

And should I not care even more as to how much money our dearly loved and appreciated ownership makes in those six season-impacting Yankee games?  

How about you - are you intrigued - or fatigued?  

I'm not gonna say for myself, but I'm going to take a nap now, so please don't bother me.   Thanks in advance.

(And no, I did not look to see what sort of interleague schedule the Nats face this year - you can do that, don't just sit there - I need to nap!)

Mack - Some 'Minor' Observations: Starting Pitching

Good morning.

Las Vegas –

Chris Flexen 

                        Monday:        4-IP, 5-H, 2-ER, 3-K, 0-BB, 3.79

Flexen was the back end of a Jason Vargas piggyback and he did fairly well, considering it was in the Vegas atmosphere. Anybody with an ERA under four in that league is alright in my book.

Saturday:      5.2-IP, 7-H, 2-ER, 6-K, 1-BB, WIN (2-1), 3.65

The object of any starter is to win and Flexen did that Saturday night. He also lowered his PCL ERA, a double win in my book. I still consider this guy one of the top Mets starter prospects and my guess, if things keep going like they are in Queens, we might see him again real soon.
P.J. Conlon  

                        Wednesday:         6.2-IP, 6-H, 0-R, 3-K, 2-BB, 6.63

Wow! Conlon finally produced the kind of outing we all have expected him capable of, even in the PCL. Drew Smith and Matt Purke helped him to compete a 7-0 shutout of Albuquerque.
Marcos Molina –

                        Friday:         4-IP, 8-H, 5-ER, 2-K, 1-BB, 9.35

This will be the last time we list Molina on this pitching prospect post. The boy just doesn’t seem to be able to get thejob done at this level.
(note: Molina was transferred to AA-Binghamton on Sunday morning)
Binghamton -         

            Nabil Crismatt

                        Wednesday:        6-IP, 3-H, 1-ER, 6-K, 1-BB, 1.21

Another great 2018 outing. Seasonal stat line: 4-starts, 2-1, 1.21, 1.03, 22.1-IP, 27-K, 4-BB. Crismatt now has the third lowest ERA in the league. I consider him a top Mets pitching prospect and a candidate for the 2019 rotation.
St. Lucie:

            Justin Dunn

                        Tuesday:     5.2-IP, 8-H, 2-ER, 6-K, 2-BB, WIN (2-1), 1.80

Hopefully, this will be Dunn’s worst outing this season. His seasonal ERA is still the sixth lowest of all starters in the league. I’ll take this all day long.
What I particularly like here is the 25 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched.

Sunday:     5.1-IP, 5-H, 2-ER,3-K, 1-BB, 2.13

                                   Dunn got off to a rough start in the first inning, but then settled down to retire 15 out of the last 16 batters he faced. A quality start.     
Harol Gonzalez

                        Thursday:    5-Ip, 8-H, 5-ER, 1-K, 2-BB, 4.74, LOSS (0-2)

Another sub-par outing for Gonzalez. In his first two outings, he gave up only one earned run in 10 innings, His next two outings resulted in nine earned runs in nine innings.

Harol needs to bear down next week in his fifth start this season.        


Anthony Kay

                        Saturday:     4-IP, 7-H, 3-ER, 4-K, 4-BB, LOSS (1-1), 2.70

A Mets pitcher once said: ‘one third of the time you pitch lights out, one third of the time you have nothing, and the other one third of the time you have to fight for every at-bat’. This was one of those fight outings when a pitcher simply is having a hard time finding the zone. He throws hard and misses causing a walk… then he slows things down to become more accurate and he’s hit all over the field.

My hope is this is Kay’s worst outing of the season.        
David Peterson

                        Tuesday:      5.2-IP, 9-H, 5-ER, 3-K, 1-BB, 4.63

For as good as his first outing was, this was equally bad. Hopefully, he can shake this one off and prove to us that his first outing this season was no fluke.

Chris Viall -

Last week’s Helium Alert recipient had 12-Ks in 5.1-IP this past Tuesday, raising his seasonal total to 29-Ks in 14-IP, for a lead leading 18.21-SO/9.

On Sunday, he had a wild outing… 5-IP, 5-K, 5-BB. Still, his seasonal ERA is 2.33 so we need to keep an eye on him.

Joe Cavallaro -       

another plus outing this week… 6-Ks in 5-IP… that’s 24-Ks in 24-IP… 2.25-ERA for the season
Current rankings…

            Two great outings…  Conlon, Crismatt

            Work Needed…   Molina

Reese Kaplan -- Somewhere Matt Harvey is Smiling

If this was a Hollywood script, the Dark Knight of Gotham would mount a furious comeback and take his rightful place back amount the fabulous five rotation of legend. 

Unfortunately reality often does not always unfold with the predictable happy endings of fiction.  This past weekend in San Diego is painful evidence of what happens when he you don’t get to write the script.

First, let’s take Matt Harvey.  With a 5-0 lead going into the 9th inning on Friday night, Manager Mickey Callway made the somewhat surprising decision to bring in the embattled pitcher to close out the game.  I’m sure every Mets fan let out a collective groan (and a few expletives) when they saw the pitching change that was made.

Indeed, that teeth gnashing was music to dentists’ ears when, to his first batter, he served up a gopher ball to ruin the shutout.  He promptly followed that with a walk to the subsequent batter.  Even the on-air announcers openly voiced that if he lost the next batter he was done (and said with a finality that it wasn’t necessarily just his role in the game that would be over).

Instead the scriptwriters set up the heroic surprise with Harvey retiring the next batter on a harmless fly to the outfield for out number one.  He then enticed the next batter into hitting into the inning and game ending double play.

Yes, the damage had been done.  Yes, he was once again ineffective.  However, when the chips were most down, he reached inside himself and did what he used to do – he got out of it.  For me it was the first encouraging thing I’ve seen from Matt Harvey in a couple of years.

In Sunday afternoon's game Harvey was brought in for the final inning in mop-up duty with a 14-2 lead.  He got the first batter on a fly out, the second on a fly out, a double, then the third on a fly out.  It wasn't a 9-pitch strikeout-the-side performance, but it was a scoreless inning and that's all you can hope for -- baby steps, one inning at a time.

Fast forward to the next day when the Mets’ pricy free agent acquisition, Jason Vargas, was set to make his debut for his new team.   Everyone wanted to see which Vargas would show up, the first half All-Star or the second half mediocrity.  For his career he’d been a credible back end starter, but unlike hitters, most pitchers achieve a more consistent route to achieve their final numbers, not the hot and cold streaks that more commonly affect batters. 

Well, surprise, Surprise, SURPRISE – Jason Vargas was neither.  He was flat-out awful.  Now given his limited preparation after breaking a bone in his non-pitching hand, I’m not ready to write him off after one rushed-back start.  Still, once again Sandy Alderson’s, ahem, “talent” for picking the right players once again seemed to rear it’s familiar and ugly head.  The irony, of course, is that what he provided is actually far worse than the man he replaced who got banished to the bullpen who, doubly ironically, earns less money.

Now after a single game no one is suggesting that Vargas is a complete failure nor that Harvey is redeemed and ready to reassume his role in the rotation.  However, instead of going for the more sure things available in free agency like Jake Arrietta, Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn, we indeed see the result of rolling the dice.  Sometimes it comes up snake eyes. 

A lot of folks are clamoring to see either Seth Lugo or Robert Gsellman moved into the rotation, but that would weaken an already fragile bullpen.  If you look at the reinforcements in AAA, Corey Oswalt is a starter (despite being used effectively as a long reliever earlier this season), and the other traditional reliever who is doing well – Tim Peterson and his 1.46 ERA – is not on the 40-man roster.  In other words, what you see is what you’re going to get for the foreseeable future. 


For those folks writing the epitath on Adrian Gonzalez's career, I don't know what was more impressive on Sunday's 5-RBI performance -- the hard smacked double to CF or the opposite field HR which shows that there is still power there.  Maybe those many articles about Jay Bruce taking grounders at first struck a nerve, but it was good to see the former Gold Glover contributing.  His batting average is still ugly but he's hit 3 HRs and driven in 17 in 66 ABs.  For those of you with spreadsheets or calculators or an abacus on hand, he's on a pace for over 120 RBIs.  Maybe young Mr. Smith in Las Vegas ought to take notice, too.  

Binghamton 6 - Erie 4

Press Release:

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Rumble Ponies fought back for an extra-inning win against over the Erie SeaWolves, 6-4, at UPMC Park on Sunday afternoon. Binghamton scored the game’s first three runs and last three runs to earn their second sweep of the season. They’ve won a season-best four straight games with half of their weeklong road trip remaining.

Trailing 4-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Binghamton prevented Erie from plating an insurance run despite Josh Lester’s leadoff triple. Lester’s three-bagger knocked David Roseboom from the game; he was replaced by Josh Torres. Torres whiffed Kenny Wilson and Jake Rogers, before getting Troy Montgomery to fly out. 

Needing one run to tie the game, the Rumble Ponies got a boost from Nick Sergakis. In his third game of the season, the third baseman led off the ninth inning with a double off the left field wall. Tyler Moore then stroked John Schreiber’s offer up the middle, tying the game 4-4.

Torres (2-0) worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the ninth inning against Erie’s 1-2-3 hitters, forcing extra innings for the first time this season

With Jeff McNeil starting the tenth inning on second base, Peter Alonso began the frame with a single, his third hit of the day. That put runners on the corners for Matt Oberste, whose grounder was collected by Kody Eaves, but the third baseman had no play. Binghamton grabbed a 5-4 lead, their first advantage since the seventh inning. The Ponies would scratch across another extra-inning tally on a Nick Sergakis fielder’s choice, scoring Alonso from third.

Tyler Bashlor pitched a scoreless tenth to earn his team-leading fourth save of the 2018 campaign. 

Alonso helped the Ponies to an early 3-0 lead, launching his league-leading seventh home run of the season. He’s hit one home run in each of the last four games. 
Joseph Shaw twirled five scoreless innings before running into some trouble in the sixth inning. After giving up an RBI double to Josh Lester, Shaw was replaced by Austin McGeorge, who allowed Shaw’s inherited runner to score. Shaw finished 5-2/3 innings, coughed up two runs with three strikeouts, and issued just one walk. 

SeaWolves starter Tyler Alexander, meanwhile, was charged with three runs over six innings just one week after shutting out the Rumble Ponies over five frames at NYSEG Stadium.

Binghamton (11-9) continues its weeklong homestand on Monday night in Akron. RHP Andrew Church tosses for the Ponies against RubberDucks RHP Michael Peoples with a first pitch scheduled for 6:35 PM at Canal Park. 

POSTGAME NOTES:The Rumble Ponies are 8-0 when scoring first…Peter Alonso has a hit in seven straight games (four multi-hit games in the last five)…Binghamton scored the first three and last three runs for the second straight game…Rumble Ponies first win (1-9) when trailing after eight innings

Augusta 2 - Columbia 0

Press Release:

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC – Scott Manea threw out two baserunners in a 2-0 loss to the GreenJackets on Sunday afternoon at SRP Park. Manea has now thrown out eight of 13 base stealers this season (61 percent clip).

Both offenses were silent in the first three innings (zero hits and zero runs). The Fireflies (12-12) threatened first in the fourth frame. With one out, Jeremy Vasquez extended his on-base steak to an impressive 23 straight games with an infield single. Rigoberto Terrazas reached on a fielder’s choice. After Ali Sanchez walked and Manea singled, Columbia had a prime opportunity with the bases loaded and two outs. However Augusta’s (17-6) starter, Garrett Cave, escaped the frame and got Raphael Gladu to fly out. The game remained scoreless after four frames.

Cave lasted just four innings on the mound. The righty recorded seven strikeouts and worked around four walks. Chris Viall made his fourth start of the season for Columbia. The 22-year-old went five frames, issued five walks, and posted five strikeouts.

Augusta’s first hit of the game came in the fifth inning. Tyler Brown led off with a perfect bunt single down the third-base line. Logan Baldwin broke the scoreless contest – his RBI double scored Brown. The only other offense took place in the eighth frame. Ryan Kirby launched a solo home run off Columbia’s reliever Stephen Villines.

Carlos Hernandez and Trey Cobb each tossed a scoreless inning for the Fireflies out of the bullpen. Hernandez has allowed just one earned run over 11.1 frames so far this season. Cobb picked up three strikeouts in his eighth appearance.

The Fireflies are off on Monday and then begins a seven-game homestand on Tuesday night against the Lexington Legends. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Spirit Communications Park.

Palm Beach 3 - St. Lucie 2

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (April 28, 2019) – The Palm Beach held on to beat the St. Lucie Mets 8-6 on Sunday at First Data Field.

The games was tied 2-2 until Palm Beach’s Ryan McCarvel ripped a tie-breaking RBI single with two outs in the sixth to put the Cardinals up 3-2.

The Cardinals appeared to break the game open by putting up five runs in the seventh. Evan Mendoza hit a two-run single and later in the frame Chase Pinder ripped a two-run double to put the Cardinals ahead 8-2.

The Mets rallied back with four runs in their half of the seventh. Mike Paez, Dale Burdick and Dan Rizzie hit three straight RBI singles to make it 8-6. Reliever Jason Zgardowski was able to stop the bleeding by striking out Gene Cone to end the rally.

The Mets brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth inning but Paez lined out sharply into a game-ending double play.

Austin Sexton recorded a six-out save for the Cardinals in his first appearance of the season.

Mets starter pitcher Justin Dunn shook off a difficult first inning to throw a good game. He allowed two runs in the first but then settled down to retire 14 of the next 15 batters. He gave up three runs (two earned) in 5.1 innings.

Palm Beach starter Evan Kruczynski allowed one earned run in 5.1 innings to pick up the win.

After not allowing an earned run in 13.1 innings over the first three games of the series, the Mets bullpen allowed five earned runs on Sunday.

Six Mets had two-hit games: Luis Carpio, Andres Gimenez, Anthony Dimino, Paez, Burdick and Rizzie. Carpio led off the first inning with a home run, his second of the year.

The Mets (10-13) are off on Monday. They return to the diamond on Tuesday when they begin a series at the Charlotte Stone Crabs. First pitch from Charlotte Sports Park on Tuesday is 6:35 p.m.




The Mets' minor leagues are filled with hundreds of players who, for purposes of the big leagues, are in essence mostly possible spare parts.

Occasionally, you'll get a Pete Alonso, who you hope is much more than a future spare part, and instead a main cog in the Mets machine.

But out of all the minor league spare parts, which at this time are most usable?

FIRST BASE - 2 viable, useful spare parts:

Dominic Smith has more experience, including big league experience, so he is a ready-made spare part.  He had 4 hits Friday night, but it was against an Albuquerque team whose ERA is in the mid 7's - still, 4 hits (singles) are 4 hits.  Has hit much less impressively in 2018 than the next fella:

Pete Alonso - a beast who the Mets would love to get more seasoning - but he may not wish to concur. Godzilla couldn't be kept out of the big city either - he forced his way in and did major damage - at least that is what Raymond Burr told me.

In 18 games, .397/.500/.730...that Pete Tank has weaponry.  

Since the 2nd game of a doubleheader last June 19, Pete in 339 at bats has hit .341 with 31 doubles and 22 homers.  Certified beast.  And only 2 errors this season, so the 2017 defense issues seem to be in the past.  Godzilla is coming.

(Note: Jeremy Vasquez - terrific season so far, but only in Columbia, so he is not yet a usable spare part.)

SECOND BASE - 2 viable, useful spare parts:

Gavin Cecchini: thru Friday, he is hitting .348/.403/.545 in 19 games - and he went hitless in the first two games.  And wow, only one error in games split between 2nd and SS.  If/when Jose Reyes leaves or someone else needs a DL stint, Gavin looks like a Spare Part Man on a mission this year.  See, however, TJ Rivera-related comments below.

Phillip Evans: like Gavin, he has big league time under his belt.  After a slow start this season, in 60 ABs, he is at .250 with 3 homers and 8 ribbies. 

SHORTSTOP - 2 viable, useful spare parts:

Luis Guillorme: slow but improving AAA start, but has a .338 on base % nonetheless.  And a Golden Glove.  Still devoid of power, to be fair and balanced.

Gavin Cecchini: As above.

THIRD BASE - 3 viable, useful spare parts:

#1 AND # 2 - Cecchini and Evans.  See above.

#3 David Thompson: needs more AAA time, but is  a decent .262/.324/.385 in 21 games in his AAA debut. Just 1 HR, 5 RBIs so far, surprisingly low for this RBI machine, and a mere 3 errors.

SPECIAL NOTE:  TJ Rivera will most likely push himself back to the top of the entire Usable Spare Parts infield heap when he is healthy, presumably in the next 4-8 weeks.  Any guy who is a career .304 major league hitter after over 300 MLB at bats belongs on a big league roster when healthy.  Rivera is the biggest threat to Jose Reyes' career right now.

CATCHER 1 viable, useful spare part:

Pat Mazeika: the lefty hitting catcher has long been regarded as more hit than field, but he has gunned down a nice 8 of 19 this year.  Frigid hitting in the freezing early season weather, he exploded in his last 7 games (13-30, 3 HR, 8 RBI).  Each game he plays brings him closer to being major league ready.  Career .308/.408/.446 hitter.   If the Mets don't make a trade soon for another catcher, and Nido continues to fail to hit, maybe Mazeika jumps to the Mets straight from AA to replace Nido or Lobaton.

Lastly, an infield wild card here is Jeff McNeil.  Jeff is a talented but oft-injured dude who has hit much better of late in AA after a return from a short stint on the DL.  Very versatile player, who has added pop (HR and double last night to boost his slug % after 14 games to a sit up and pay attention .654).  He needs to catch fire to force his way into Usable Spare Parts consideration.

Next article in this series: useful spare outfield parts.

2018 Draft - Weekly Results

Carlos Collazo (@CarlosACollazo) on C Joey Bart
45 hit tool seems to be a common grade thrown out. I'd say 40-45 but I'm not a scout. He's got plus power, a plus arm and the tools to be a plus defender though. That's huge at catcher.
