I know, I'm as surprised as you are. But it had to happen sooner or later just because of the law of averages. Maybe this is the jump start. Maybe not. But if you believe in snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, then surely you also believe in snatching a major league roster spot from the jaws of Las Vegas. Davis had two hits on Sunday night against the Braves, the last one being a huge two-run single with the game tied in the eighth which was the difference in ending the Mets five game losing streak in a 4-2 victory. Shaun Marcum's seven strong innings striking out 12 Braves in easily his best game as a Met made this huge Ike Davis moment possible.
And it came just after Ike was given some friendly advice by his bosses:
Ooh look, in the back pretending he has expertise in this situation ... it's Jeff Wilpon! "Can I hang out with you guys too? I was a professional ballplayer too you know! Seriously!"
It would be hilarious if Ike was sent down after his game win...
