Ah yes, a little stroll down silly lane. Fans complaining about how Ike's swing looks in what is a RESULTS oriented business. 


I wonder if these same fans would've complained about Babe Ruth's waistline while he was revolutionized the game. 

As in, "Oh sure, he hit the ball for a home run, but he never moves the runner over in the 5th inning."

LOL Now everyone will say Davis, but if you look at that swing it is terrible. Yes he can muscle a ball out of the park, but his hips are open, weight is out front, and his arms made that whole swing, that will never work long term in baseball. I am not hitting coach but god that is easy to see.

I hate to say it but tejada hasn't looked too terrible so far

Nice to see Davis come through and help his team win one. He did feel the need to remind everyone in his post game interview that he's not used to pinch hitting. Well maybe that's where he does his best work.

Interesting stat, Mets are 0-3 when scoring first, 2-0 when scoring second

despite the recent past, Ike just has the higher ceiling offensively and is competent with the glove. i'm glad Duda won that game single-handedly yesterday, but if it's between the two, Ike should get the nod. 


...and Lagares has shown that he very well may be the best option for leadoff in this lineup. he should be there everyday with Brown playing LF for now until Young gets back. wouldn't mind den Dekker getting a call up for that spot either, since he was raking in spring training. EYJ just hasn't shown anything out there offensively.

Mets is actually saving Duda MLB career, on another team he would be rotten on the bench or down in the minors, Ike Davis has a future in this league with any ball club

ooops, meant to write, ... revolutionizing. Proving once again, haste makes waste.

Totally agree man been saying that for a while now. He's a strong guy and can hit one outta the ball park but he's a 200 hitter

Your right he's been decent as long as he's batting 8th and makes all the plays that should be made he's ok

@bingmets  No, but he's certainly not good enough to be the starting SS of the New York Mets.

Nice job. However I think the trade ideas are unrealistic.

@openmind6  He didn't do well pinch hitting last year, what makes you think one AB has trurned him into a stud pinch hitter? Maybe he's just mad the better player is sitting on the bench?

@jimmybx182 Problem in a nutshell. Other than Valverde doing very well so far, can Terry trust anyone else in that bullpen?

This is a quick crowd to judge people. Grandy is a pro. Just like Byrd was last yr. If he struggles it won't be because he's in NY.

@nymess  Lagares has been working counts like a pro.

@dreamer3kx Question is this, is he in the locker room like a beat reporter or posting his opinion?

First goal should be a link to the game winning hit.

@dreamer3kx  To be fair, he said Ike was starting a game this weekend when he announced duda was getting a majority of the playing time

@brosoul @bingmets  Yes, actually, he is, provided he can maintain his current level of production for the remainder of the season. That's a huge if, but there's no need to have an offensive first SS as so many fans have clamored for. If he can play very good defense while batting .280, SS will be the least of our probelms.

Still, we were expecting a disaster. So far he's been solid.

@lindro88  haha I know :/ I'm just trying to think outside the box!

I liked it. Who cares if he was out in front. It was a hanger, he kept his hands back, and hit it off the 2nd deck. Do they all have to be picturesque?

@amazins @nymess  Legares looks great. If I didn't know it was Juan Legares and I'd think it was Beltran. He's got that smooth languid way about him.  Let's hope

@Marky Mark @dreamer3kx  But thats the thing, he shouldn't have mentioned this was Duda's job. Duda hasn't done ANYTHING to be chosen over Ike, it made no sense.

@John G Oleon @brosoul  And his hitting through his first 2 years shows he does have the potential to hit. It's like you said you're not a htting coach so stop trying to act like one

John G Oleon

@Sean Garcia  right so because I cannot do that that makes me wrong...wow! So now we are saying Ike can hit? On a hanging curve, you need to wait and keep your weight back....any fastball there he would have struck out big time....Major league hitters can hit both, they do so with patience and trusting bat speed, they drive balls with their lower body, not the arms....

@openmind6 @Nick Squatrito  Obviously you didn't read my comment or you would have realized i put LAST YEAR. So he's had two attempts this year and happened to get two hits. Like I said going 2-2 in pitch hitting attemots doesn't automatically make u a stud pinch hitter

Beltran? Lets not go crazy. He'll never be the offensive player Beltran is/was.

@lindro88  I don't think Terry is a good manager. He makes poor in game and roster decisions, and don't give me the "That's a decision the org made". Terry's job is to put together the daily lineup. The organization's job is to provide the players for Terry to work with. Last I checked, Ike is on the current roster. He is a better overall player than Duda. Everyone knows that, but Terry. So if he doesn't see that, he is indeed a moron in that sense. 

lindro88

His point is TC is not a moron. No matter what you or anyone else think about him as a manager, I can guarantee that nothing any of us seem he isn't aware of. He didn't pick Duda alone. That's a decision the whole org made.

He also lost 3 in a row. What is your point exactly?

@brosoul @Marky Mark @dreamer3kx  Give the guy a break for a millisecond. He just won 2 games in a row. No matter what anybody does 80-% of the knuckleheads here have a criticism and knew better.
