PLAYERS: Ike DavisLucas Duda
TEAMS: New York Mets
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 on Wednesday night, is blistering hot and now sports a mind-boggling .390/.510/.561 slash line (prior to Friday night’s game) to go with a sterling 1.071 OPS. Obviously you can’t sit Satin in favor of Davis while he is this hot, as that would set a terrible example. On the flipside, though, when do you give Davis a fair chance to recapture his old job? In other words, what more does Davis have to do in Vegas to get the call back up to Queens? Or is his promotion directly tied exclusively to how Satin is doing? Sure, Davis could use a little more instruction while working to stay consistent. However, through...

Hot Josh Satin Could Hurt Mets’ Chances Of Trading Ike Davis

The New York Mets are close to entering the dilemma stage with first baseman Ike Davis. At the beginning of the season Davis was considered part of the Mets’ core, but for the second straight year slumped out of the gate. This time, the Mets tired of waiting for the flourish that never came and shipped him to Triple-A Las Vegas where he would presumably get “fixed,’’ by manager...

Decision Time is Coming for Ike Davis

John Harper of the New York Daily News published an article this morning discussing Ike Davis and the Mets’ need to figure out if he’s part of the future plan. Harper leans more toward yes, stating that: “They need to find out if Davis can be counted on as part of their plan for next year and beyond. Certainly that’s more important than trying to squeeze a few more hits out...

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.

Mets' Ike Davis will rejoin team today

The New York Mets had not been happy with Ike Davis' under-performing ways when they sent him back down to Triple-A.  Now, the Mets are willing to give him another chance.  After showing his true talents in the minors (again), the Mets have recalled the 26-year old first baseman. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Davis will rejoin the Mets tonight as they take on...

Davis Will Play Everday At First Base And Push Satin To The Bench

Updated by Joe D. on 7/5 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...

Josh Satin’s value to the Mets

It’s no surprise that as the Mets sit here in July, many new faces have come up and seen time in the big leagues. One of those new faces has come up and taken over at first base. That is none other than Josh Satin.  With Ike Davis finding himself in the minors and Lucas Duda hurt, the Mets turned to a prospect that they liked, but just couldn’t find room for at the big league...

Nieuwenhuis Goes Crazy, Davis Goes Insane, Wheeler Wins The Game!

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...

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...

Terry Collins: Josh Satin Is Our Savior Right Now

According to a post by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York, it now appears that Josh Satin’s hot bat will be keeping Ike Davis in Triple-A Las Vegas longer than what some may have initially thought. Satin, whose RBI single in the bottom of the ninth forced extra innings last night, went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a walk in the Mets comeback win. He has now reached base safely in 12...
