Davis Hiding Injury Irksome

I root for Ike Davis. Like any other member of the Mets I want him to succeed. But then the New York Post breaks a story about how Davis hid an injury and it upsets me. The injury, to his oblique, occurred while he was struggling early last season and was on the verge of […]



Fun Again… At Least For Two Nights

I haven’t posted much this season because there really hasn’t been much to write about. Sure, if I were a professional writer I’d find what to write about but I do this for fun and not for work. But after the last two nights there is finally something fun to write about. Back to back […]



Should Ike Davis Go To AAA?

There’s a lot of talk lately about Ike Davis possibly being sent to the minors due to his current slump. Honestly I would have no problem with this if not for one issue. Davis proved something to me last season when he managed to hit 32 home runs. But he struck out 141 times too. […]



Minaya’s Deal With The Devil

Ever since Omar Minaya left the organization I’ve wanted to believe the Mets bad injury history would be over. And just when I’m starting to believe that it is the team is hit with an injury bug. Pedro Beato, Scott Hairston, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Lucas Duda and Reese Havens all have been recovering from injuries this […]



Almost Spring

The agony (if you’re a Jets fan) and ecstasy (if you’re a Giants fan) of the football season is now behind us. With the Giants Superbowl victory on Sunday and parade yesterday the NFL news cycle is now complete. We can now start thinking about baseball. I’m not one to analyze rosters through the offseason […]



Player Shuffle In Wake Of Wright Injury

News came yesterday afternoon that David Wright has a stress fracture in his aching back. He’ll be out at least 10 days but will likely not need surgery. Almost immediately after hearing the news I thought the Mets would move Daniel Murphy to third base and call up Nick Evans to play first base. Turns […]



Ike to DL, Muprhy To 1B

After further examination Ike Davis has been placed on the DL with an ankle sprain and bone bruise. Fernando Martinez was recalled from AAA Buffalo to take Davis’s roster spot. Daniel Murphy will move over to first base and leave second base to Justin Turner and Willie Harris. Though Murphy has experience at first base […]



Davis To Have MRI

The Mets have sent Ike Davis back to New York for an MRI on his ailing leg. Davis injured the leg last night in when he collided with David Wright while both were attempting to make a play on a popup in front of the mound. This is both bad news and good news. The […]



The Story Thus Far

We’re 31 games into the season and I’ve barely posted at all so far. So let’s take a moment to catch up. The Mets are 16-20 and in last place in the NL East. There are 5 players on the disabled list including staff ace Johan Santana. (Santana’s place on the DL was expected.) One […]
