Ike Davis Is Determined To Make It Back To The Mets

What Nobody Wants To Know About Ike Davis

Yes. This was a year too late. While most Met fans were jumping for joy when Ike Davis re-discovered his swing in the second half of last year, I was one of the few who preferred demoting him to AAA to rework his swing and more importantly his mindset. I’m not saying I was right, but who are we kidding? I was right and I stood by it then and now. It’s a shame because there really...

Was Ike Davis Unlucky in 2013?

If one were to try to account for how lucky, or unlucky-, a player has been during the course of a season, a common statistic to look to is said player’s Batting Average on Balls in Play.

The Anachronistic Ike Davis

Prior to the series sweep of the New York Yankees, the New York Mets had made it known that first baseman Ike Davis was on the cusp of being demoted due to his lack of performance. Despite leading the team with 32 home runs last season, Davis has hit a measly 5 home runs through 55 games this season — along with 16 runs batted in and a line of .161/.242/.258 which is absolutely...

Mets Remain Stuck After Ike Davis Demotion; Doing Daniel Murphy Wrong

At least the Mets had one issue resolved Tuesday night, and that is who to demote from the rotation when Zack Wheeler is brought up. That will be Jeremy Hefner, who gave up five unearned runs. The Mets are determined to bring up Wheeler despite questions of him not being ready because they desperately want a diversion to this already lost season. Hefner and Dillon Gee have pitched...

Will Mets really blow chance to move Lucas Duda to 1B?

The following story is respectfully offered for your consideration. It concerns two people—Ike Davis and Lucas Duda —but they are from another galaxy and another time. They live quite simply in the Twilight Zone. Okay so they’re not from another galaxy and another time.

Mets shuffle infield, give Valdespin shot at 2B

In the wake of Ike Davis' demotion to the minors, the struggling New York Mets are shuffling the right side of their infield and giving Jordany Valdespin an opportunity to play regularly. A starter at first base since 2010, the slumping Davis was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday along with outfielder Mike Baxter and reliever Robert Carson. While Davis is in Las Vegas trying to...

Make no mistake: Mets must make trade for big bat

Minor moves. Major problem. That sentiment is essentially what the Mets hinted towards their fans this week when they demoted Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson to Las Vegas while designating Rick Ankiel for assignment.
