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, the Mets may have seen the last of him.  After a roller coaster of emotions throughout his time with New York, Davis has never developed into the player the Mets hoped he would have.  He was even demoted at one point this season. Regardless, Davis has had some productive times with the Mets.  He has produced an OPS above league average in every season aside from this one.  In his career, Davis is a .242/.334/.434 hitter.  He has shown flashes of the power the Mets thought he would have, but his nine home runs this season have been a surprising disappointment. Davis is still under team control through the 2017 season.  However, the Mets could look to trade him during the offseason.  There have been rumors swirling around Davis for some time now.  As it became clear that he would not be the player the Mets wanted him to, trade rumors began to sprout.  Now, with this injury, it's possible the Mets have seen the last of him.  This winter will tell the story.

Ike Davis May Have Played His Last Game As A Met

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...

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...

Ike Davis Injury Should Open Door For Wilmer Flores At First Base

With Ike Davis likely playing his last game with the New York Mets because of a strained right oblique sustained Saturday afternoon the Mets are presented a golden opportunity to further get answers for next season. However, what Terry Collins said he’ll do and what he should do are two different things. Collins suggested Lucas Duda getting most of the time, with Josh Satin sprinkled...

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...

Davis Goes Deep, Gee Dominates Nationals In 3-2 Win

Dillon Gee put together quite a start tonight for the New York Mets when he baffled the Nationals over nearly eight innings of work. His only blemishes were two solo home runs given up — one in the bottom of the third to Wilson Ramos and another in the bottom of the eight to Steve Lombardozzi. He surrendered just six hits overall and walked one batter while striking out three....

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...

One Large Steamin' Cup Of Lucas Duda ... Coming Up

Twisting, wincing, trudging off the field ... and out of our lives for the season, and maybe for good. That was Ike Davis' night in a nutshell, a night parallel to his season and perhaps the sad punctuation to a Mets career that took a turn for the worse with the haunting words: "I should be back on Wednesday." Davis hurt himself hitting a sacrifice fly in the third...

State Of Grace

I imagine that this is what purgatory must be like ... playing out the string in August and September, watching brilliant outings by Dillon Gee and opposite field home runs by Ike Davis mean little except to send the Washington Nationals straight to hell. It isn't even like it's all that much fun to spoil the Nationals' fleeting playoff hopes. I mean, #Natitude is ridiculous...

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...
