IKE DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Game 133: Pirates 3 Cardinals 1

After two days of ugly bullpen work from the Pirates, this game was pretty much exactly what they needed. Ike Davis hit a looooooong home run in the bottom of the second inning to give the Pirates a 2-1 lead and Andrew McCutchen hit a sac fly in the third after the Cardinals cut the lead in half, then Jeff Locke, Tony Watson, and Mark Melancon cruised through the game’s final six...

Pirates top Cardinals, 5-2, on Davis' homer; Alvarez, McCutchen hurt

Ike Davis understands why he has lost playing time to Pedro Alvarez. “Petey hit something like five home runs in two days,” Davis said with a smile. “He deserves to play. You can't really argue with that.” In a tense eighth inning Tuesday, Davis made a case that maybe he has earned another look. He smacked a pinch-hit, three-run, homer that lifted the Pirates to a 5...

Ike Davis’ three run blast in the 8th lifts Pirates past Cardinals 5-2

Lance Lynn was looking for his 15th win of the season Tuesday night at PNC Park, which would put him tied atop the lead in wins in the majors. His outing would give the Cardinals a chance to win. But this night would belong to Pirates’ starter Gerrit Cole through the first six innings. He threw six scoreless innings, only to allow one hit. A two-out double by Kolten Wong would...

Lucas Duda Over Ike Davis, a Mets Decision That Seems to Have Payed Off

By BTS Team The New York Mets were left with a tough decision in the beginning of this 2014 season.  Who would be their starting first baseman?  Only a few seasons ago was it that Ike Davis did fans and the Mets organization see a bright future for their corner fielder.  Along with many spectacular fielding plays, Ike Davis made his impact with the lumber, sending moon shots out...

Lucas Duda’s day has come

For years the debate raged on. Should the Mets keep Ike Davis or Lucas Duda as their first baseman?  Some thought that Duda was the clear-cut better choice, while others steadfastly defended Davis.  I flip-flopped my stance on Davis more times than your average Washington politician. Coming into this season, my stance was I thought that Davis had the higher potential, but Duda...

Game 129: Pirates 10 Brewers 2

When idiot bloggers say things like it’s “insane and inexcusable” to play Pedro Alvarez at first base in the pennant race, it sort of circumvents an entire discussion about Pedro Alvarez and Ike Davis. Ike Davis isn’t really hitting like an ideal first baseman, he’s consistently on base and Pedro Alvarez isn’t consistently anything. Alvarez, though, has more raw power...

Clint Hurdle throws up hands in frustration, starts Pedro Alvarez at first base

Ike Davis has not been a particularly great acquisition for the Pirates this year. I guess he’s provided the Pirates some Garrett-Jones-level production for slightly less money than Garrett Jones would’ve cost, but Garrett-Jones-level production these days is about replacement level, which is squarely where Davis sits in his few months with the Pirates. You don’t trade potentially...

Ike Davis (1B, PIT) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Ignore In All But Deepest Mixed and NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: The Ike Davis that hit 32 round-trippers in 2012 has ceased to exist ever since. With only 16 homers in 580 at-bats since his breakout 2012 campaign, Davis has cemented himself as a platoon hitter with no real fantasy value in all but […]

Mets Acquire Pirates Prospect Blake Taylor To Complete Ike Davis Trade

The Mets have finally completed the Ike Davis trade, acquiring left-handed pitching prospect Blake Taylor from the Pirates. Taylor, 18, was selected by the Pirates in the second round (51st overall) last year, signing exactly a year from today. Draft picks cannot be traded until a year after they sign, meaning Taylor had to stay with the Pirates until today. The Mets also acquired...
