Las Vegas 7, Reno 1 Josh Satin caught wind of Ike Davis showing signs of life at the plate and decided that he needed to step it up a notch – so he ripped four hits and drove in four runs in this 7-1 Las Vegas victory. On the pitching end of the victory was Carlos Torres, who has honestly turned it up a notch ever since I called him out in the beginning of May. I honestly don’t know if he read my little rant, but since then, he has had just one bad start (6.0 IP, 4 ER) and the other three starts have all been at least 6.0 innings with only 1 ER allowed. That’s actually pretty impressive. Torres was on his game again last night and allowed only three hits and a walk over six-and-two-thirds innings. Gonzalez Germen and Greg Peavey combined to finish the game for him with 2.1 scoreless innings. As I mentioned before, Satin dealt the big blow on offense with his four RBIs, but Wilmer Flores, Brian Bixler, and Omar Quintanilla all had RBIs in this one as well. Quintanilla was noticably r...

Ike Davis is Beginning to Hit

Although the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets on Friday night, there was one positive sign for the Amazin’s: Ike Davis is beginning to hit his stride at the plate. Davis was faced with a possible demotion earlier this week when the Mets traveled to Yankee Stadium, but proceeded to have a two-hit night that included a two-run single that knocked Yankees starter David Phelps...

Mets Minors: Josh Satin Has Earned A Promotion

Josh Satin is clearly the most worthy of getting a shot at first base if the team ultimately decides to demote Ike Davis. He must smell blood in the water, because he was 4-for-5 last night, with four RBI. He’s batting .316 this year with 8 home runs and 31 RBI. Satin also gets on base over 40% of the time. He has earned a promotion at this point, especially with the way Davis...

Opinion: Ike or Satin? Give Satin a Chance.

Josh Satin has been tearing it up for the Las Vegas 51′s (the Mets triple-A club) all year long. Satin is batting .316 with eight homeruns and 31 RBI’s. Not only is he hitting the ball well, he is drawing a lot of walks. Satin has 32 base on balls, which is one of the reasons why his on base percentage (OBP) is .417. The Mets current starting first baseman, Ike Davis, has obviously...

Mets still searching for identity after 48 games

The Mets had a .400 winning percentage in April and with four games remaining in May their winning percentage checks in at .390 for the month. It would be an easy conclusion to say that this is who the Mets are as a team yet the way they reached these marks is so different that it makes one wonder if that’s really the case at all. Do you recall the Mets winning games by scores...

Daniel Murphy is More Valuable Than You Believe

Sources inside the New York Mets organization revealed yesterday that both Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada were in jeopardy of being demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas if their performance didn’t improve over the course of the remainder of the Subway Series. While Tejada dodged a bullet by straining his hamstring and ending up on the 15-day disabled list, Davis managed to break out of his...

You Mad, Bro? Queens Bombers Edition

From SB Nation’s “Pinstriped Bible“: “please win tonight. i can’t handle any more losses to the freaking mets” “After tomorrow, the next time they’ll be relevant is July 31st when they see what they can get for guys like Murphy and Neise.” “Duda is a decent hitter” “That’s 6 Mets in a row that have reached base now” “I bet that’s a season high....

Six Moves The Mets Could Make To Give This Team A Jolt

1. Fire Dave Hudgens – Call it bad luck, poor execution or just a failed approach, whatever Hudgens is doing or trying to do has been a massive failure. There are no success stories in his wake and too many good hitters with promise that have regressed. Every failed season needs a fall guy, and Hudgens fits the bill quite nicely. Remember when Steve Phillips fired Bob Apodaca and...

Mets win 3rd straight from Yankees

Once the Subway Series rolled around, the New York Mets got on the right track. Challenged by fed-up manager Terry Collins, slumping infielders Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada sparked a five-run first inning that kept the Mets sailing along in this surprising set with a 9-4 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday night. Tejada hit a leadoff single, Davis drove in two runs and the fourth...

Happy Youxeira Day, everybody!

... And so, as the cold night descended upon our weary travelers, Brett, Robbie, Ichy and Pronk kept marching toward the light of day, knowing the Great Valley cannot be far...  OK, first... seriously, does anyone reading this NOT believe we will be swept and embarrassed tonight by the lone franchise in sports that can run a direct timeline from Choo Choo Coleman to Ike Davis...

Game Chatter: Dillon Gee vs. Vidal Nuno (5/30/13)

Yesterday we mentioned the “Terrible Trio” and how John Buck, Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada were acting as sinkholes for the lineup.  Tonight, two of the three are not starting and who knows – maybe this will be the day Davis ends his 29-game, 105-PA homer-less drought. To get started just enter your email address and desired username: Name E-mail Related Posts:Terrible Trio...

Can the Mets Pitching Staff Build on this Current Win Streak?

Is this a mirage, are we actually witnessing something special happening with this Mets team. Have they woken up from their hibernation? We know not to expect anything special with this group this season, but what just happened this week, is somewhat confusing. Did it take for the Yankees to come into town for the Mets to finally start playing winning baseball? Was it the aura of...

Top 10 Worst Performances In May

It would be too easy to put Ike Davis on this list, but he’s likely to A) not be in the MLB much longer or B) suck every month, thus being on the list monthly. Duds also fall under two categories — the names that are supposed to produce and the players who started off hot but cooled off, whether known or lesser known. There are some big names on this list, and with the way...
