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 winning hit. But the Mets have done crazier things so would it seriously surprise you if you woke up tomorrow morning to a post on Metsblog or ESPN.com that Ike Davis was the newest Las Vegas Fifty-One? Of course it wouldn't. Oh you may act like it does. But deep down, you won't be surprised. But hey, at least in Las Vegas he would have a support system. Check out the nice tweet that Zack Wheeler sent after Davis got that big hit: @iked29 just doing it right there!!! That a boy — Zack wheeler (@Wheelerpro45) May 27, 2013 Very nice, supportive teammate. Of course, somebody would have to have a problem with it:   One more thing. Zack Wheeler tweeted "that a boy" at Ike Davis? If I'm him I'm thinking, easy there, Vegas. — Andy Martino (@MartinoNYDN) May 27, 2013 Terrific. There can't even be a nice moment without a controversy. This team is on pace for 100 losses and we can't even enjoy the 62 wins.
