Ike Davis

  1. Brewers GM Doug Melvin thinks the Mets could make a good trading partner

    Ike Davis

    The Brewers need a first baseman, that much is obvious. Long time outfielder Corey Hart is one option, and one that Brewers GM Doug Melvin has certainly considered. Melvin, however, is looking towards the Big Apple as a creative way to round out his roster, noticing that the Mets will be open to moving Ike…

  2. Alderson: 2014 will be “a new day” for the Mets

    Nov 16, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Sandy Alderson

    Mets GM Sandy Alderson recently said he won’t target players expected to take home a nine-figure contract, like Jacoby Ellsbury or Shin-Soo Choo, but he did state that the 2014 season will be “a new day” for the franchise. Newsday’s Marc Carig writes that Alderson spent 45 minutes on the radio, between WFAN and ESPN…

  3. Report: Logan Morrison drawing “significant” trade interest

    Logan Morrison AP

    The Marlins continue to insist that slugger Giancarlo Stanton is unavailable via trade, but it appears that Logan Morrison could be had. While no deal is considered imminent, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi are reporting that Morrison is drawing “significant” trade interest. Aside from Stanton, Morrison was the Marlins’ most-asked about player…

  4. A lot of teams are interested in Ike Davis

    Nov 13, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    New York Mets Photo Day

    Jon Heyman reports that the Astros, Orioles, Rays, Brewers, and Rockies have all checked in with the Mets about the asking price for Ike Davis. The Mets are considering dealing Davis and going with Lucas Duda. This despite the fact that, recent troubles notwithstanding, Davis has shown serious promise in the past. Part of their…

  5. The Mets are interested in Corey Hart

    Nov 6, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

    Corey Hart

    Mike Puma of the New York post reports that free agent Corey Hart is drawing interest from the Mets. As are a dozen other teams, apparently undeterred by Hart’s multiple knee surgeries. The Mets seem like an odd pursuer. They have a lot of first base types with Ike Davis and Lucas Duda. Of course one…

  6. Ike Davis will not be non-tendered by the Mets

    Sep 9, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis is an interesting problem. He started the year in the deepest of swoons and it got so bad that the Mets sent him back to Triple-A to figure stuff out.  There he did, and and after returning from Triple-A in early July he hit .267 with an .872 OPS in 48 games, posting…

  7. Ike Davis unlikely to play again this season

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis left Saturday’s game with a strained oblique muscle and manager Terry Collins said this morning that the Mets expect the first baseman to miss the remainder of the season. That’s a very tough break for Davis, who was turning things in around in a huge way following an absolutely brutal start to the…

  8. Terry Collins almost certain to be back in 2014

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    Terry Collins is technically a lame duck as the Mets’ skipper. His contract runs out at the end of the month and, given his 213-246 record at the helm, it’s not as if there is a rich history of success in New York compelling the Mets to extend him.  Nevertheless, Buster Olney reports that extend…

  9. Ike Davis exits with a strained right oblique

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis may have played his last game in 2013. In the third inning, with the Mets leading 1-0, Davis skied a sacrifice fly to left field. He grabbed at his side, then left the field gingerly with trainer Ray Ramirez, writes ESPN’s Adam Rubin. Rubin later verified that the injury is…

  10. Mets recall Lucas Duda from Triple-A

    Lucas Duda Getty

    The Mets announced this morning that they have recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas. In turn, Mike Baxter has been optioned back down to the minors. Duda batted .235/.353/.438 with 11 home runs and 23 RBI through 68 games this season prior to landing on the disabled list with an oblique strain in late…

  11. Ike Davis has been much better since his demotion

    Aug 11, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis started off the 2013 season abysmally, carrying an OPS at exactly .500 through June 9. In an attempt to turn things around, the Mets demoted Davis to Triple-A Las Vegas. Under manager Wally Backman, Davis thrived, posting a 1.091 OPS in three weeks with the 51’s. Davis came back on…

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 2: In what is the most meaningful baseball played in Pittsburgh in over 20 years, Francisco Liriano was dominant and Pedro Alvarez hit his NL-leading 27th homer and the Pirates pull to within a half game of first place. Rays 2, Red Sox 1: Gotta love that a blown call impacted a…

  13. The Mets totally shellack the Nats in the first game of today’s double header

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals - Game One

    I don’t guess one game of a doubleheader is usually that notable, but since it was the only day game today the Mets-Nats affair got my attention. And even if it hadn’t beforehand, man, it would have after it got going. The Mets demolished the Nationals 11-0. Jenrry Mejia got the start for New York…

  14. Ike Davis plans to bunt more often

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis attempted to bunt for a base hit in the bottom of the second inning with one out and the bases empty and his team down 1-0. He was facing an infield shift, so his thought was to drop a bunt down the third base line for an easy infield single,…

  15. There is “zero chance” Wally Backman will be the Mets next manager

    Jun 13, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Wally Backman, Tim Teufel

    As we noted previously, the demotion of Ike Davis has put his new manager in Las Vegas — Wally Backman — in the spotlight. This is because there is a loud contingent of Mets fans and New York reporters who like Backman, want him to be the next Mets manager and are viewing this as…

  16. Wally Backman hasn’t fixed Ike Davis yet

    Jun 12, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis made his debut for Las Vegas last night. He went 0 for 3 with two walks and two strikeouts. So I guess Wally Backman hasn’t fixed him yet, putting uncertainty into the Mets managerial search! Well, OK, it was only one game. And according to this New York Post story, Backman did actually…

  17. The engine is revving on the Wally Backman bandwagon

    Jun 11, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    backman walking on field

    Wally Backman is probably as good a candidate as any to be the Mets next manager. He’s the Triple-A manager. He’s popular among fans, especially ones who remember the 1980s. I was skeptical of his candidacy a couple of years ago because he really hadn’t had a lot of experience yet, but he’s worked his…

  18. Mets demote .161-hitting Ike Davis to Triple-A

    Jun 10, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Well, no one can say the Mets didn’t give Ike Davis an opportunity to turn things around. After sticking with Davis for 55 games of a brutal .161 batting average and .500 OPS the Mets demoted the 26-year-old first baseman back to Triple-A, where he last played in 2010. Here’s what general manager Sandy Alderson…

  19. Motivated by failure against Marlins, Mets make sweeping changes

    Jun 9, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v New York Mets

    The Mets were swept by the Marlins for the second consecutive weekend, and endured consecutive extra-inning losses as they fell 8-4 in ten innings this afternoon after losing 2-1 in 20 innings yeterday. Manager Terry Collins watched as his bullpen surrendered a 4-3 lead and put the game out of reach after imploding in the…

  20. 2013 MLB Draft: Picks 11-20 – Mets look to first base, Padres go Renfroe

    Jun 6, 2013, 8:36 PM EDT

    Hunter Renfroe

    Mets picked high school first baseman Dominic Smith 11th overall. Domonic Brown has been this year’s breakthrough player, so why not Dominic Smith. It can’t be taken as a great vote of confidence for either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda that the Mets took a first baseman here, but many, many things can happen before…

  21. Hapless Marlins sweep Haplesser Mets

    Jun 2, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    David Wright

    The Mets had Matt Harvey on the mound today and they got three homers for the offense. That should be a sure recipe to snap a little two-game losing streak, right? No, not even close. The Mets blew a 6-4 lead as the bullpen gave up seven runs in three innings Sunday in an 11-6…

  22. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  23. The Mets may demote Ruben Tejada

    Mets' Ruben Tejada reacts after he was picked off second base by Yankees during their MLB interleague baseball game in New York

    Last week the Mets were rumored to be mulling a demotion for Ike Davis. This week the target is Ruben Tejada. Andy Martino quotes one “high-ranking Mets source” that it has been discussed. The only thing that may be holding it up at the moment are roster construction issues, as his most likely replacement — Omar…

  24. Mets rally late against the Braves to snap losing streak

    May 26, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    On ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, the Braves wasted a strong effort by starter Julio Teheran and a seventh-inning, go-ahead two-run home run by Dan Uggla to fall to the Mets 4-2. The Braves ended their eight-game winning streak and in so doing, also ended the Mets’ five-game losing streak. The two teams, still, are heading…

  25. Braves win resumed game against the Mets

    May 25, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Atlanta Braves

    The Mets had stormed back late last night against the Braves to tie the game 5-5 after eight innings just before crew chief Dale Scott decided to halt the game, to be resumed later. At 6:10 PM ET tonight, the game was unpaused and the Braves quickly retook the lead on a Dan Uggla RBI…
