My past administrator blog role prevented me from developing relationships with readers that commented and being freed from that here is a Godsend. I was never a great blog administrator...

Through it All, Ike Davis’ Season Won’t Be That Bad

Ike Davis stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday afternoon with no one on and one out.  After taking one practice swing, Davis stepped into the batter’s box and hit the first pitch he saw from Astros reliever Wilton Lopez. When Davis hit it, you could tell he thought it was gone as he gazed at it before starting to run to first.  However upon second review...
