    Ike Davis entered tonight’s series opener against the Braves hitting .147 with a .481 OPS. The first baseman has heard rumors of a possible demotion to Triple-A amid an avalanche of criticism. He did nothing to alleviate concerns as he earned the illustrious golden sombrero, striking out four times tonight. As ESPN Stats & Info…

  2. The best and worst from MLB lineups in 2013

    Miguel Cabrera

    This is a quick look at the very best and worst each major league lineup spot has to offer this year. Posted along with each line is the player most responsible. We’ll start out with the good before moving on to the bad. 1. Reds: .292/.442/.517, 9 HR, 37 R, 20 RBI, 5 SB (Shin-Soo…

  3. Why hasn’t Ike Davis been sent down yet?

    May 23, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    The Mets first baseman is having a train wreck of a season thus far. He’s hitting .147/.236/.245, which is horrible even on a horrible Mets offense. And his poor hitting seems to be infecting his fielding too. See, yesterday’s non-play on a ball he though was foul but which he turned into a game-killing double.…

    Great Gatsby

    I saw “The Great Gatsby” yesterday. Gatsby is my favorite novel of all time. The movie was not the book and if your basis for slamming it is that it’s not the book, well, your standards and expectations probably need to be checked. Deciding beforehand that I’d not make my judgment of it dependent upon…

  5. Ike Davis assured by Mets GM demotion is not imminent

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis went 0-for-4 in the Mets’ loss to the Cubs on Saturday and is batting just .156/.238/.359 in 39 total games this season. But the Mets’ decision-makers still aren’t ready to do anything drastic. Despite some reports to the contrary, Davis was assured Saturday by Mets general manager Sandy Alderson that a demotion to…

  6. Is Daric Barton a fit for the Mets?

    May 18, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    The Athletics designated first baseman Daric Barton for assignment earlier today as the 27-year-old was carrying a sluggish .143 average through 23 plate appearances. On the other side of the country, the Mets have just about hit their tipping point with Ike Davis as D.J. Short pointed out earlier. Davis is hitting .156 with 46…

  7. Report: Mets considering demoting Ike Davis

    May 18, 2013, 10:09 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    UPDATE: Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told Mike Puma of the New York Post this afternoon that there’s no deadline for a decision to be made on Davis’ status. 10:10 AM: Ike Davis finally broke his 0-for-24 hitless streak yesterday with a single to center field in the sixth inning, but he’s still at risk…

  8. Mets director of media relations: king of the butt dialers

    Recently we mentioned the Twitter adventures of Jay Horwitz, the Mets’ director of media relations. Today Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal notes something for which he is far more infamous: butt dialing. The 67 year-old Horwitz has a Blackberry which he refuses to lock for some reason and, as a result, he accidentally…

  9. Mets could extend Ike Davis

    Mar 5, 2013, 11:23 PM EDT

    ike davis getty

    ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin spoke with “an official familiar with the process” on Tuesday night about how Team USA is planning to replace first baseman Mark Teixeira for the 2013 WBC. One option, the official confessed, is the Mets’ Ike Davis, an Arizona native. Though that same official noted that “a lot of names…

  12. Ike Davis opens up about his valley fever, or whatever it was, last year

    Feb 8, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Last year Ike Davis was reported to have valley fever, a fungal infection which sapped his strength and led to him having a horrific start to the season. Of course he downplayed it all. His quote from last March: “It’s been the same,” said Davis. “Seriously. I feel great. And I don’t have any symptoms…

  13. Terry Collins is gonna have to find someone else to get mad at this spring

    Feb 5, 2013, 9:17 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    For the past two years, Terry Collins has made a big angry fuss about players showing up to spring training late.  Wait, that’s wrong: he’s made a big angry fuss about players showing up to spring training on time. In 2011 it was Luis Castillo. Last year it was Ruben Tejada. Each time Collins made…

  14. Mets, Ike Davis avoid arbitration with one-year deal

    The Mets and Ike Davis have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract that is believed to be worth $3.125 million, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Davis was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super Two player. He requested $3.7 million and was offered $2.825 million from the Mets…

    The Padres’ Chase Headley, the Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo and the Tigers’ Max Scherzer are among those asking for big raises in arbitration.

  16. The Mets won’t trade Ike Davis

    Nov 9, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Back in September Adam Rubin reported that the Mets were considering shopping Ike Davis. And you knew there was probably something to it given that, at the same time, the team floated stuff about his character and work ethic to give them cover. It’s like the Mets are the Red Sox’ padawan learner in this…

    This is the second of a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Albert Pujols – Angels Projection: .306/.414/.586, 43 HR, 114…

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…

    New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins

    Yankees 6, Twins 3: Six shutout innings for Andy Pettitte. After all these years. After a retirement. After an injury that cost him the bulk of the season. Andy Pettitte is still critical to the Yankees after all of these years. Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1; Blue Jays 9, Orioles 5: The split costs Baltimore…

  20. Ike Davis is NOT happy with whoever on the Mets accused him of being out late

    Sep 18, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    In the earlier Ike Davis story, Adam Rubin cited Mets team officials who said they were concerned with Davis being out too late after games and not taking instruction.  All of this is news to Ike Davis, who does not sound at all happy about what he read this morning: “I have never missed games…

  21. The Mets may trade Ike Davis, will criticize him to the media first

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Last night Matthew talked about how it appears that the Mets are making Ike Davis into a platoon player late in the season and how, by doing so, they’re letting Lucas Duda play games at first base, which is where he really belongs. Today Adam Rubin reports that the Mets are thinking about going one…

  22. The Mets are making Ike Davis a platoon player

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Ike Davis turned his season around in a big way after a horrible first two months — he’s hitting .261/.339/.549 with 22 homers and 59 RBI in 284 at-bats since June 12 — but the Mets have decided to close out the season with him on the bench and Lucas Duda at first base against…

  23. Ike Davis has quietly turned things around in a big way

    Sep 6, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis had an absolutely brutal start to the season, hitting .167 with a .533 OPS and 59 strikeouts in 58 games through June 10. When you’re that bad for that long to begin the year it’s almost impossible for your overall numbers to avoid looking ugly, but Davis has given it a helluva run.…

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…
