KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK…
What a comedy of errors we had in this one as the New York Mets walloped the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 12-5 tonight at Miller Park. This was a fun game and I hope you all got a chance to watch it.
I’m going to forego a retelling of all the many Brewer baserunning blunders and just get to the stuff we really care about – what did the Mets do!
Lets cut right to the chase and say that the return of Ike Davis to the lineup couldn’t have gone any better than it did. Davis went 3-for-5 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI’s. It was his first 3-hit game since last September. Good for him…
Kirk Nieuwenhuis had the game of his life… He was on base six times, going 4-for-4 with a pair of walks, three runs scored and five RBIs… Wow… Are you kidding me???
Juan Lagares also had a nice game going 2-for-3 with a walk and three ribbies, while Eric Young has a pair of hits and score three runs. The Mets totaled 14 hits and went 7-for-22 with runners...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Sure, why not write another Ike Davis column!
You see, a lot has changed in the last week, as Josh Satin (Davis’ direct replacement) has gone on a tear and appears steadfast in wanting to keep the job at first base. Also, Davis is doing his best to reclaim the job, as he has now gone back-to-back games with hitting a home run in Las Vegas.
Satin, who hit his first career home run...

Ike Davis had a big night for Triple-A Las Vegas tonight as they beat the Fresno Grizzlies 2-0. Davis went 3-for-4 with a double and his seventh homerun since being demoted. He is now batting .293 in 74 at-bats with the 51s.

The New York Mets recalled first baseman Ike Davis from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Davis, demoted on June 10 due to a poor start to the 2013 season, was batting fourth against Milwaukee on Friday night.
Davis was hitting .161 with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 55 games before being sent down. He made some mechanical adjustments during his stay in the minors and batted .293 with seven...

Based on comments made by Terry Collins Thursday and Wednesday, Ike Davis will return to the Mets and be immediately installed as the everyday first baseman.
“We’re not bringing Ike up to be a platoon player I can assure you of that.”
Wow… Not even to be considered in a platoon…
Davis batted .293 during his stint with Las Vegas and slugged seven...
Kirk Nieuwenhuis was almost the hero in yesterday’s loss to the Diamondbacks in 15 innings, launching a solo home run in the 14th to tie the game. However, Friday was a different story, as Nieuwenhuis turned in a career performance in the Mets’ 12-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Nieuwenhuis went 4-for-4 with a double and triple, while driving in a career-high five runs...
Keith Hernandez, the man whose former mustache was the inspiration behind the name of this blog, has once again given us some wonderful material to use from his time on the air.
Kevin Burkhardt was giving us another one of his riveting reports, this time on how Josh Satin reacted to being benched for Ike Davis, and Keith then gave all of us this wonderful gem.

Coming off a heartbreaking 15-inning loss one day earlier, the New York Mets got a much-needed offensive outburst from an unexpected source.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis drove in a career-best five runs, and Zack Wheeler allowed one earned run over five shaky innings to pace the Mets to a 12-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
''Tremendous night for Kirk Nieuwenhuis...
Following a promising debut, top prospect Zack Wheeler hasn't been quite as sharp for the New York Mets.
Perhaps a date with one of the worst teams in baseball can boost his confidence.
The Mets will try to begin a nine-game road trip in positive fashion Friday night when they send the hard-throwing right-hander to the mound against the lowly Milwaukee Brewers.
While he hasn...
With the All Star Game coming to Citi Field, it might be fun to run down Mets in All Star Game history. First up the 1960s.
