New York Mets
Twisting, wincing, trudging off the field ... and out of our lives for the season, and maybe for good. That was Ike Davis' night in a nutshell, a night parallel to his season and perhaps the sad punctuation to a Mets career that took a turn for the worse with the haunting words: "I should be back on Wednesday."
Davis hurt himself hitting a sacrifice fly in the third inning of the Mets' 11-3 victory over the Nationals. He's probably out for the season, as the Mets seemed to fall all over themselves to announce tonight. That would of course make Davis' plate appearance, perhaps his final plate appearance as a Met, the ultimate sacrifice fly. But hey, get ready for a heaping spoonful of Lucas Duda at first base the rest of the season.
(All the while Ruben Tejada is thinking "damn, how the hell is Omar Quintanilla perfectly healthy???)
The Mets have now taken two straight from the Washington Nationals, who entered this series winning eight of t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Rusty said something interesting in his This Day In Mets Infamy column this morning…
I think we are watching Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda play their final games as Mets…
In that above photo, taken a year ago, we went into the 2012 offseason convinced that those three would all be a a part of the new Mets core… Now none of them are seen that way anymore either...
After leaving tonight’s game with an apparent strained right oblique, Terry Collins told reporters that he expects Ike Davis to miss the remainder of the season.
Davis injured himself while swinging on a sacrifice fly in the third inning. He grimaced as he clutched his side, and was replaced by Lucas Duda. Oblique injuries usually take about a month or longer to heal so Collins...
New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis has left the game against Washington with an apparent injury to his right side.
Davis grimaced and grabbed at his side after hitting a sacrifice fly in the third inning Saturday night. He never ran out of the batter's box, and bent over in foul territory not far from home plate.
Mets manager Terry Collins and a trainer came out of the dugout...
Ike Davis' season may be over. After grabbing his side in the third inning of the New York Mets' matchup against the Washington Nationals last night, Davis had to leave with an oblique strain. He injured himself on a swing.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York says the general healing timeframe for an oblique injury likely means Davis' season is done. If it is done...
Ike Davis hit a two-run homer, Daniel Murphy scored from second on a groundball, and Dillon Gee allowed two runs over 7 2-3 innings Friday night in the New York Mets' 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals.
Gee (10-9) allowed six hits, struck out three and walked one, outdueling Jordan Zimmermann as the Mets won for only the third time in nine games.
The Nationals, trying to...
Dillon Gee put together quite a start tonight for the New York Mets when he baffled the Nationals over nearly eight innings of work. His only blemishes were two solo home runs given up — one in the bottom of the third to Wilson Ramos and another in the bottom of the eight to Steve Lombardozzi. He surrendered just six hits overall and walked one batter while striking out three....
The Mets (62-73) lost to the Nationals (69-67) by a score of 6-5 Sunday night at Nationals Park.
Jon Niese took the hill against Ross Ohlendorf as the Mets sought to sweep Washington on the road. Jon was handed a 2-0 lead before throwing a pitch thanks to Daniel Murphy’s RBI double and an RBI single from Lucas Duda. Matt den Dekker padded the lead in the top of the 2nd with his...
It’s plainly too much to ask of poor Terry Collins to have to endure this sight one more time — one of his pitchers pacing the back of the mound pulling on his shoulder swinging his arm suggesting the unthinkable has happened yet again.
The Mets manager caught his breath then bounded from the dugout in the seventh inning at Nationals Park last night with that urgent Jimmy Cagney...
I imagine that this is what purgatory must be like ... playing out the string in August and September, watching brilliant outings by Dillon Gee and opposite field home runs by Ike Davis mean little except to send the Washington Nationals straight to hell. It isn't even like it's all that much fun to spoil the Nationals' fleeting playoff hopes. I mean, #Natitude is ridiculous...
New York Mets fans knew heading into this season that 2013 was not goal. It was not the end of the tunnel. The front office and ownership could spin things however they wanted, but fans weren’t naive enough to look at the opening day roster and say ‘we got a chance to win the whole damn thing this season.’ So with that we trudged on and bought into a bigger plan, one...
