Andy Martino of the Daily News was told that the Mets want to resolve the Ike Davis situation before potentially demoting Ruben Tejada. He adds that they could also just send both of them down at once.
Earlier today, WFAN’s Mike Francesa, Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada would have been sent to Triple-A after last night’s game had the Mets lost the game, based on what a team source told him.
Francesa also added that Davis and Tejada have been told they need to show “immediate improvement soon” or “they will be demoted.”
I wondered if anyone else found it odd that a win that neither player contributed to spared them both from a demotion, especially Tejada who almost cost us the game – TWICE – last night.
Martino’s news rings more true and makes more sense.

Ike Davis is easily the most perplexing player on the Mets roster right now. Now in his fourth season since being called up in 2010, Davis has posted one-and-a-quarter good seasons, and one-and-a-quarter horrendous ones. He has looked like two completely different ballplayers.
Davis’ early triumphs on the field have perhaps given him some leeway within the organization when...
Sources inside the New York Mets organization revealed yesterday that both Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada were in jeopardy of being demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas if their performance didn’t improve over the course of the remainder of the Subway Series. While Tejada dodged a bullet by straining his hamstring and ending up on the 15-day disabled list, Davis managed to break out of his...
Josh Satin has been tearing it up for the Las Vegas 51′s (the Mets triple-A club) all year long. Satin is batting .316 with eight homeruns and 31 RBI’s. Not only is he hitting the ball well, he is drawing a lot of walks. Satin has 32 base on balls, which is one of the reasons why his on base percentage (OBP) is .417.
The Mets current starting first baseman, Ike Davis, has obviously...
It appears the Ruben Tejada problem has taken care of itself.
On the day after hearing a wake-up ultimatum or risk being sent to Triple-A Las Vegas, Tejada strained his right quadriceps going after a ball he had no chance of catching in Wednesday night’s victory over the Yankees.

That left the Mets with the easy option of placing Tejada on the...
The Mets had a .400 winning percentage in April and with four games remaining in May their winning percentage checks in at .390 for the month. It would be an easy conclusion to say that this is who the Mets are as a team yet the way they reached these marks is so different that it makes one wonder if that’s really the case at all.
Do you recall the Mets winning games by scores...
Last night New York Mets fans got to rejoice as their team came back to beat the Yankees in novel fashion. Watching the comeback unfold against Mariano Rivera, who continues his farewell tour from ballpark to ballpark, felt somewhat unnatural. Reason being, nothing like that has never happened before. That’s not to say that Mariano has never blown a save against the Mets...
Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps, a day after helping spark a 9-4 win over the Yankees.
Tejada limped off the field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth Thursday after getting hurt chasing a foul fly down the left-field line. He had a leadoff single in a five-run first, but also had a mental lapse in the...

Potentially lost among the exciting and unlikely 2-1 walk-off victory against the Yankees was the unsightly performance of shortstop Ruben Tejada. His sub-par season has been generally overlooked due to the even more significant woes of slumping power hitter Ike Davis, however with veteran Omar Quintanilla tearing the cover off the ball, the time has come for Tejada to get the hook...
Yesterday we mentioned the “Terrible Trio” and how John Buck, Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada were acting as sinkholes for the lineup. Tonight, two of the three are not starting and who knows – maybe this will be the day Davis ends his 29-game, 105-PA homer-less drought.

It would be too easy to put Ike Davis on this list, but he’s likely to A) not be in the MLB much longer or B) suck every month, thus being on the list monthly. Duds also fall under two categories — the names that are supposed to produce and the players who started off hot but cooled off, whether known or lesser known. There are some big names on this list, and with the way...
