Mets Will Consider Trading Ike Davis Who Is Unwilling To Take Coaching Advice

According to what a baseball source told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets will consider trading Ike Davis this offseason. While that does not guarantee Davis will be moved, it at least is a very plausible option. Davis should be marketable despite a slow start because he is a 30-homer threat with the potential for above-average fielding at first base. The Mets are disappointed...

A Quick Thought About Ike Davis

Just a quick thought on something Adma Rubin just tweeted about Ike Davis: If you look at David Wright’s OPS which is a team leading .895 and also top ten in the NL, you would think he’d be infinitely ahead of Ike Davis in the RBI department considering Davis has just a .754 OPS. That’s a difference of almost 150 points. Wright’s On-Base Percentage is over 100 points higher...

Should Chris Young Be Brought Back?

  Chris Young took the loss on Sunday, but worked into the seventh inning, and in doing so passed 100 innings for the season and received a $150,000 bonus. More importantly, he’s probably showed enough to warrant a contract for 2013, if not from the Mets, then somebody else. “It means I’m healthy,’’ said Young. “I think I’ve pitched pretty well, better than my record...

Ike Davis On The Mets Trading Block: Where There’s Smoke There’s Fire

Collins Officially Benches Ike Davis Against Lefties

Try this one on for size Mets fans… According to Terry Collins, Lucas Duda will play first base against left-handed pitching for the remainder of the season.

Mets Shut Out By Brew Crew, Lose 3-0
