Last official word we heard about Mets first baseman Ike Davis, he was getting a cortisone shot, getting an MRI and waiting for some improvement on his ankle. If it didn’t improve: season-ending surgery.
Well, this is far from official word, but apparently Davis is pessimistic: he told a bunch of summer campers that his ankle is “not good” and that he’ll be back and healthy next year.
A spokesman for the day campers had no comment following the press conference, but a day camper who wished to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to discuss the matter said that “us kids are all bummed because Ike was off to such a good start and — oh, hey, it’s time to go swimmin’!”
