While the New York Mets’ 5-0 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night was all about the glorious performance of Matt Harvey and the contributions from Wilmer Flores (in his second game of action); underneath it all was another solid outing from the very embattled Ike Davis. Say what you will about Davis’ colossal slump to open the season—which stretched more than three months and ended up with a demotion to Las Vegas—Davis has looked a lot better at the plate in the last few weeks, with “better” being the operative word. Ever since he has come back, Davis is seeing the ball really well and is not looking like a lost cause at the plate like he previously was.  He is recognizing pitches really well and is not swinging much out if his comfort zone. Prior to Wednesday night’s game, Davis  was sporting  a .282/.446/.422 slash line in his 26 games back from the minors. Davis once again had a solid outing on Wednesday night in in which he went 1-3 with another double (he has six in...

LaTroy Hawkins Calls Someone On Twitter A “Douche”

LaTroy Hawkins got the save on Tuesday night for the Mets against the Rockies as they won the first game of the series 3-2. The 40-year-old vet, an avid user of Twitter, got an interesting message last night to celebrate the save.

Heating-up D-backs host Mets for three-game set

One thing seems certain: The second meeting between the Diamondbacks and Mets this season will not be as bizarre as the first, when two of the four games went into extra innings and two had rain delays. The D-backs lost the opener in New York in 13 innings and won the final game in 15, when Brad Ziegler recorded the first of his now seven saves as the bullpen underwent a facelift...

Who’s Hot/Who’s Not: Lawley Continues to Rake, Johnson Hits a Rough Patch

Who’s Hot: Dustin Lawley, OF, St. Lucie: Lawley continues to annihilate FSL league pitching. This week he has hit three home runs, seven RBIs, and is hitting .286 in 21 at bats. Lawley is too advanced for Single-A pitching, and he deserves to be called up to AA soon. It will be interesting to see how he fares against AA pitching once he’s promoted. Luis Cessa, SP, Savannah: Luis...
