According to a post by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York, it now appears that Josh Satin’s hot bat will be keeping Ike Davis in Triple-A Las Vegas longer than what some may have initially thought. Satin, whose RBI single in the bottom of the ninth forced extra innings last night, went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a walk in the Mets comeback win.

In four decades of rooting for the Mets my most painful memory, without a doubt, was when Yadier Molina deposited an Aaron Heilman pitch over the wall in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. I literally could not believe what I saw. Seeing is believing—but not in this case. 2006, like 1986, was OUR year. The 162 games were a mere formality.

Mark Hale of the New York Post spoke with Zack Wheeler who told him that he;s ready for the challenge that awaits him. “Overall, I feel like I’m ready,” Wheeler said. “My past two starts, I haven’t been happy with my command, especially my last start.
