As the Mets wait through a second rain delay and the score tied at 5-5 against the Braves, Ike Davis looked worse than ever tonight at Citi Field. The slumping first baseman is 0-4 with four strikeouts as they wait for the rain to stop. This has become unbearable. Meanwhile, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reminds us that infield prospect Wilmer Flores continues to log time at first base with Triple-A Las Vegas. Flores, the regular second […]
With Ike Davis all, but assured of a trip to Triple-A Las Vegas, the easy part is done. The difficult part will deciding on how to replace him, in body only, at first base. On the current roster, we already discussed some of the options available and they range from moving Lucas Duda from left field to first base, moving Daniel Murphy over to first, or giving Justin Turner significant playing time at first as well. None of […]
It always is interesting how people automatically call a hitter that hits homers, strikes out a lot and has a low average “Dave Kingman.” Kong certainly had his issues, but regardless of what you think he still had a 16-year career in which he hit 442 homers. To say that Ike Davis is Kingman would be an insult since that would be an improvement over what he’s producing today. As a matter of fact, a […]
Updated Post 1:44 PM MLB Trade Rumors just posted something that would add to the debate on Choo as a potential acquisition for the Mets in 2014. I also updated the original post to indicate that Choo’s best position is right-field. Of course, as with most free agents, Choo’s next contract will cover post-prime years, perhaps age 31-35. With Boras doing the negotiating, we can’t rule out a sixth year or a salary in the […]

Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped to Omaha 4-3. Binghamton dropped Portland, 8-5. St. Lucie lost to Bradenton, 8-1. Savannah topped Augusta, 12-10. Prospect Pipeline If you haven’t heard the news, Rafael Montero was brought up to Triple-A, and will be making a spot start with Las Vegas this week. With Zack Wheeler on the seven day DL, and Collin McHugh joining the Mets in Queens, they were short on arms. This is said […]
There has been much talk and speculation recently about the possible demotion of Ike Davis to the minors. Such discussion is certainly warranted considering Davis’ performance over the first 40 games of the season. The Mets’ struggling first baseman is hitting .156 with four homers and nine RBI. His on-base percentage is an unhealthy .238 and his .259 slugging percentage is lower than what his batting average should be. His 2013 numbers through 40 games […]

Original Post 11:30 AM Discussions of demoting Ike Davis have intensified within the Mets organization says Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. Although the Mets slumping […]
