Found August 31, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
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 realized Davis was likely done for the season once it was confirmed this was an oblique strain. The timing couldn’t have been worse for Davis who was still trying to establish himself as a keeper while the Mets now look toward 2014. Once again, the month of September has become open tryouts for next Spring Training for the Mets. And one of the key decisions the team needs to make is at first base. The rest of this month was supposed to be Ike’s opportunity to prove he should be the first baseman going forward. Instead it now becomes an opportunity for Duda to try and give the Mets a reason to go with him inst...

Davis leaves with apparent injury

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...

Mets' Ike Davis exits with oblique strain

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...

What Does The Future Hold For Davis, Duda and Murphy?

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...

Davis homers, Gee strong as Mets top Nationals 3-2

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...

Ike Davis homers to back Dillon Gee; Mets top Nationals, 3-2

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...

The magical 2013 season, where answers turned to questions

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...

Terry Collins likely to return as Mets' manager in 2014

Lame-duck New York Mets manager Terry Collins is not facing unemployment. While team officials do not intend to commit to re-signing Collins until after the season there is internal respect for how he has navigated this season's challenges and a "strong expectation" he will continue to manage the club in 2014 a source familiar with the Mets' plans told ESPNNewYork...

Collins Likely To Remain Mets Skipper, Expect Announcement At Season’s End

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York says that lame-duck Mets manager Terry Collins is not facing unemployment. That is not to say his return as Mets manager will be a slam dunk for 2014, but the odds are heavily in his favor. A source familiar with the situation told Rubin, that while team officials do not intend to commit to re-signing Collins until after the season, there is internal...

Parnell Unlikely To Return This Season, Surgery Still On The Table

In what I can only describe as disappointing, Terry Collins told reporters that Bobby Parnell is not close to returning — and in fact, is not even close to throwing a baseball right now. Although the Mets have not announced anything officially, it is all but confirmed that Parnell will be missing the remainder of the season. He has not pitched since July 30th. Parnell received...
