Ike Davis

  1. 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…

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

    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…

  3. The Mets are making Ike Davis a platoon player

    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…

  4. 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.…

    Bryce Harper

    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…

  6. R.A. Dickey tosses five-hit shutout vs. Marlins for 17th win

    R.A. Dickey Getty

    UPDATE: Dickey and Cueto have some company. Gio Gonzalez just tossed a five-hit shutout of his own vs. the Cardinals for his 17th win. 9:50 PM: R.A. Dickey tossed a five-hit shutout tonight as part of a 3-0 victory over the Marlins, putting him into a tie with fellow National League Cy Young candidate Johnny…

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  8. Adrian Beltre homers three times in rout of Orioles

    Aug 22, 2012, 11:01 PM EDT

    Adrian Beltre

    Adrian Beltre went yard three times, including twice in a nine-run fourth inning, in the Rangers’ 12-3 defeat of the Orioles on Wednesday. Beltre and Mitch Moreland both knocked in five runs in the game. Moreland had a grand slam as part of the huge fourth inning. It was the first career three-homer game for…

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

    Aug 17, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Braves 6, Padres 0: Chipper Jones with two mammo yicketties on Chipper Jones bobblehead night. One of his homers was his 2,700th career hit. Say what you want about the guy, but he has always had a flair for the dramatic and has always risen to the occasion. Even kinda lame occasions like bobblehead nights.…

  11. The umpires in the Mets-Braves game are having a tough inning

    Jul 14, 2012, 5:46 PM EDT

    Terry Collins

    And what a surprise…. it’s Dan Iassogna’s motley crew. In the top of the fifth today in the game between the Mets and Braves in Atlanta, C.B. Bucknor missed a very obvious play at first base, calling the Mets’ Jordany Valdespin out on his attempt for a bunt single. It wasn’t even a bang-bang play;…

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  13. Mets tie a major league record in 17-1 drubbing of Cubs

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy

    The game started off quietly enough, with the Mets and Cubs tied at 1 after three innings. It didn’t stay that way, though: the Mets exploded for 15 runs between the fourth and sixth innings in routing the Cubs 17-1 on Wednesday. David Wright, Ike Davis, Scott Hairston and Daniel Murphy combined to drive in…

  14. Ike Davis ejected, likely to face a fine for bumpin’ the ump

    Jun 27, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Manny Gonzalez

    Ike Davis had a legit beef last night. His swipe tag missed baserunner Steve Clevenger on a pickoff play last night, but Clevenger missed the bag and Davis got him on the second attempt. First base umpire Manny Gonzalez missed that, though, and called Clevenger safe. An argument ensued, and during the argument Davis’ glove…

    Frank Francisco Getty

    Fresh off referring to the Yankees as chickens in the New York Post, Frank Francisco was called on to close out Friday’s game. It wasn’t pretty and he didn’t strike out the side like he promised, but he was able to escape a jam to notch his 18th save as the Mets won the first…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  17. Quote of the Day: why the Mets are doing well

    May 30, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Citation Needed

    According to Rich Coutinho of CBS New York, it’s … Chemistry in the clubhouse. It can extend winning streaks and snap losing streaks. The Mets have great chemistry, and that’s been been of the biggest reasons New York sits in second place in the competitive NL East. And here I thought it was because of…

  18. Mets tell Ike Davis he’s in no danger of being sent to minors

    May 24, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis has been about as bad as a major leaguer can be this season, hitting .159 with 44 strikeouts in 42 games at an offense-driven position while producing a .503 OPS that ranks 172nd out of 176 qualified batters. That’s more than 400 points below the mark he posted in 38 games last season…

  19. Are the Mets thinking of demoting Ike Davis to the minors?

    May 21, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Ike Davis has struggled all season, hitting just .163 after missing most of last year with an ankle injury, but manager Terry Collins repeatedly made it very clear that the Mets had no intention of demoting the first baseman to the minors. And then yesterday Collins’ tune changed a bit, according to Andy McCullough of…

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 10, Phillies 5: Cliff Lee was OK in his return, but he was on a pitch count and the bullpen — including reverted-to-longman-work Kyle Kendrick — got shellacked. Again. Ike Davis drove in three.  The Mets so thoroughly own Citizens Bank Park this year that the Phillies are gonna have to launch some awkward…

  21. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

  22. Albert Pujols is in a 5-for-50 slump

    May 4, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Not only hasn’t Albert Pujols started producing like his usual self following a rough start to the season, he’s actually getting worse. Pujols went 3-for-5 with three doubles on April 19, which was his first game with multiple extra-base hits and seemingly signaled that he was starting to come around. Instead he’s gone 5-for-50 (.100)…

  23. Brad Mills went a bit nutso with his pen last night

    May 1, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    Brad Mills

    Look, the Astros won the game so it’s all good, but this was a little nuts:  Brad Mills used six pitchers against six consecutive batters across an inning and a third. Bud Norris started the game and went six and two-thirds innings.  In the seventh, the last batter he faced was Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who singled in…

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

    Via Baseball Think Factory, we find a Supreme Court opinion released today that makes a passing reference to the Mets in order to parse some legal language: The meaning of the phrase turns on its context. See Johnson v. United States, 559 U. S. ___, ___ (2010) (slip op., at 5) (“Ultimately, context determines meaning”).…
