The Mets have recalled Ike Davis from Triple-A and he will rejoin the team in Milwaukee as the Mets take on the Brewers in a three-game set. Now the question is: How long of a leash will the Mets give Davis this go-round? Earlier Terry Collins said that when Davis came back that he would not be platooned. The Brewers are slated to throw three righty starters, so it seems that even if platooning was on the table, that Davis would play at least the first three games. Davis received 207 PA before he was mercifully sent out of town the first time. But that is by far the longest leash Collins has shown anyone this year. Actually, there’s been absolutely no pattern in how long the manager will stay with a certain player. This is a situation that virtually begs to be treated on an individual, case-by-case basis. Yet it’s hard not to wonder why some players get extended shots while others get virtually none at all. Collin Cowgill was dubbed the club’s starting center fielder, a po...

Mets recall 1B Davis from Triple-A

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...

Matt Harvey naked in a white bath robe launches dirty memes

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was photographed for ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, which is due out next week. The second-year pitcher has dominated this season, going 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 123 innings. His hot start was enough to make him a person of interest for ESPN’s shoot, and the magazine sent [...]

Mets Would Need To Be “Blown Away” To Trade Bobby Parnell

Updated by Joe D. on 7/5 Updating this debut post by our newest addition Rob Costello, there’s this recent tweet by Ken Rosenthal who says that a team source told him that the Mets would need to be blown away to trade Bobby Parnell by this year’s trade deadline. That would make perfect sense and the reasons are outlined quite nicely by Rob below. This whole notion of trading...

Daniel Murphy’s Fielding Cycle and Kirk Nieuwenhuis’ Offensive Outburst

On Friday night, the Mets hammered the Milwaukee Brewers, defeating them by the final score of 12-5.  The Bad News Brewers committed three errors on the field and a number of mental errors on the bases.  Despite the Brew Crew’s valiant effort to become the butt of David Letterman’s next Top Ten list, it was two Mets players who really stood out.  One went 0-for-6 but took...

Trade Deadline: Finding Underrated Talent in Milwaukee

As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen. The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends...

D-backs outlast Mets in wild 15-inning finale

NEW YORK (AP) -- Cliff Pennington hit an RBI single with two outs in the 15th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks, boosted early by Gerardo Parra's bunt double, finally outlasted the New York Mets 5-4 in a back-and-forth classic Thursday to split an exhausting series at Citi Field. Arizona scored in the final three innings but couldn't close out the feisty Mets until Brad...

Mets-Brewers Preview

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...

Programming Change

Independence Day is a day for great traditions. Backyard barbecues, Twilight Zone marathons, and baseball. But I find it distressing that, with no warning, SNY decided that instead of baseball, they were instead going to air the Twilight Zone marathon. Oh, that was a baseball game on SNY? Yeah, you could have fooled me. Because that was nothing short of bizarre that we witnessed...
