After a sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Mets laid an egg in a home series against the Red, dropping all three games.

Coming off of a sweep at the hands of the NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds, the Mets should probably consider themselves lucky. Why you ask? Well, just as the Mets had done when sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays only a few days earlier, their crosstown rival Yankees did the Mets a favor in their sweep of the Washington Nationals. Its for that reason and that reason alone that the Mets remain only 4.5 games back [...]

Yesterday, Joe D posted some thoughts regarding sending Ike Davis down to the minor leagues. During the discussion I threw a thought out there. “What if Duda is the 1B of the future, and not Ike?” For the most part it got ignored, but after last night’s poor at bat as a pinch hitter, I still have to wonder.
