Ike Davis homered in the seasonâ€™s second game. He homered twice a couple weeks later, then he homered again a week after that. That makes it sound like Davis hit a flurry of home runs, which he didnâ€™t. He hit four over a handful of weeks. But then, after going deep on April 25, he didnâ€™t go deep ...

Poor Ike Davisâ€¦ Â He gets demoted to Triple-A, deservedly so, and leaves for Las Vegas without commenting on his feelings or the matter. The obviously crushed first baseman kept his head down after the game on Sunday as he emptied his locker, packed his bags and headed for the airport.
SNY sent their Baseball Insider Andy Martino to Vegas and asked Davis what was going through...

The day has finally come in which the Mets used their brains and sent Ike Davis to Triple-A, and he was not alone.
Left handed reliever Robert Carson and Queens Native outfielder Mike Baxter have been given a free trip to Las Vegas, while the Mets are expected to recall lefty Josh Edgin, outfielder Colin Cowgill and first baseman Josh Satin.
Well at least we have guys with cooler...
Falling under the category of it being about time, the Mets demoted Ike Davis this afternoon, along with outfielder Mike Baxter and left-hander Robert Carson to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Davis has struggled all season and there has been speculation of him being optioned for several weeks, but GM Sandy Alderson has been reluctant to make the move.
Davis struggled early last year but rebounded...

The New York Mets have demoted first basemen Ike Davis. Marred in a 1-for-15 slump Davis had become a sign of the Mets struggles this season.
Hitting just .161/.242/.258 on the year the 26-year-old Davis had higher expectations after hitting 32 home runs and driving in 90 last season.
â€śHe needs to be able to play every day and work on his swing without worrying...
The first thing to cross my mind hearing about the Ike Davis demotion is: Â What grievous thing did he do that he hasnâ€™t done all season to finally cause Sandy Alderson to act?
Seriously, what took Alderson so long? All of a sudden Alderson watched the flailing first baseman and said, â€śHey, this has to stop.â€™â€™ I find that hard to believe.Â What I donâ€™t find hard to believe...
If one were to try to account for how lucky, or unlucky-, a player has been during the course of a season, a common statistic to look to is said playerâ€™s Batting Average on Balls in Play. The statistic measures how often a player got a hit when putting a ball in play, separating all other in-game factors from the equation. While the statistic can help to tell the story of luck...
Over the past half-decade or so, Mets fans have developed a self-deprecating, Larry David-esque sense of humor. It is a coping mechanism to deal with some really awful baseball. Consider the following, the Mets cleanup hitter and everyday first baseman Ike Davis is currently hitting .164. Last year, Davis played in 156 games for the Mets and hit .227. The Mets franchise is so inept...
Yes. This was a year too late. While most Met fans were jumping for joy when Ike Davis re-discovered his swing in the second half of last year, I was one of the few who preferred demoting him to AAA to rework his swing and more importantly his mindset. Iâ€™m not saying I was right, but who are we kidding? I was right and I stood by it then and now.
Itâ€™s a shame because there really...
According to multiple reports, the Mets have optioned Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson to Triple-A Las Vegas following todayâ€™s brutal 8-4 loss to the Marlins.
Adam Rubin is reporting that the three corresponding moves will come from Triple-A Vegas after todayâ€™s game. No one has been pulled from the 51s game yet.
More on this to come. Keep it locked on MMO.
Prior to the series sweep of the New York Yankees, the New York Mets had made it known that first baseman Ike Davis was on the cusp of being demoted due to his lack of performance. Despite leading the team with 32 home runs last season, Davis has hit a measly 5 home runs through 55 games this season â€” along with 16 runs batted in and a line of .161/.242/.258 which is absolutely...
At least the Mets had one issue resolved Tuesday night, and that is who to demote from the rotation when Zack Wheeler is brought up. That will be Jeremy Hefner, who gave up five unearned runs.
The Mets are determined to bring up Wheeler despite questions of him not being ready because they desperately want a diversion to this already lost season. Hefner and Dillon Gee have pitched...

Sandy Alderson has announced that the Mets have optioned Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson to Triple-A Las Vegas following todayâ€™s brutal 8-4 loss to the Marlins.
â€śAt some point you just have to say to yourself this is not in his best interest,â€ť Sandy Alderson said about Davisâ€™ demotion. â€śI was one of his biggest supporters. I just felt at some point weâ€™ve got...
The New York Mets have gotten off to a wretched start that has seen them dip to 12 games below .500 in early-June. The early optimism of a club that could potentially earn a Wild Card berth if everything clicked is as far gone as a Rob Carson fastball.
The club demoted LHB Mike Baxter, LHP Rob Carson, and LHB Ike Davis on Sunday night following the clubâ€™s 8-4 loss to the Miami...
