Ike Davis tells summer campers he’s probably done for the season

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’!”

    They never sent any ballplayers to my day camp. We did have a guy there who claimed he was on the Reds and Yanks in the 50s, but I never found any proof of it.
