Some Mets-related links as ace R.A. Dickey makes a bid for his 19th win…
- Triple-A pitching coach Mark Brewer won't be back in 2013, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger. McCullough writes that there was a disconnect between Brewer and the club's prescribed pitching program. Brewer had been in the organization in various capacities since 2006.
- The Mets' Triple-A team, the Buffalo Bisons, has reached a player development contract with Las Vegas, reports ESPN's Adam Rubin. That means that the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate, who had previously occupied Las Vegas, will be moving to Buffalo. Rubin calls the move to Las Vegas and Brewer's dismissal "unrelated."
I hope they’ll still be called the 51s. Best hats and team name in the minor league, hands down.
Why would they change the team name? They are named after the team in Flushing. The 2013 Mets are winning 51 games…
Why would you want your AAA team all the way on the other side of the country?
Want was not in the cards. It was the only team without a PDC.
so the Mets will play at Cashman field
I’m glad it was pointed out that a pitching coach not coming back had nothing to do with the team moving across the country
This is great for the Jays…Vegas was terrible.
This is fantastic for the Jays AND the fans. Now we can get an up-close look at the farm system whenever we want and its only a 2 hour drive for call ups. Very excited – may ever go out and get some Bisons gear!
Fantastic news for Jays fans.
Me and my father were going to plan a road trip to Yankee Stadium next year… guess we’re just going to have to stop in Buffalo on the way down or back up!
I could get use to this… bout time. Hell yeah!
