Ike Davis is Pure CHAOS!

“Me, I’m like pure chaos and I swing as hard as I can.” “I don’t think I’ve seen a guy, pound for pound, with more pop than he’s got.  If he connects, the ball will hit the Grand Canyon.”  ~  Chipper Jones Davis has quickly become one of my favorite Mets. He has an intensity […]
