Well, after the situation with Ike Davis and the New York Post, media training comes at a pretty good time. ESPN’s Adam Rubin said Davis and Post reporter Mike Puma had a second argument in the parking lot before leaving for the day yesterday afternoon.
I’m kind of glad this happened. Maybe it gets Ike fired up. I have yet to talk with anyone here in uniform who doesn’t feel his main issue is simply his confidence. Yes, there are mechanical things he can do with his swing, but that’s the case for everyone. However, more than anything, people say he just needs a good stretch of at bats, feeling good and strong again. I’ve noticed him with David Wright a lot, they throw together, hit together, and I wonder if that was by design. In any case, maybe yelling at Puma will help jolt Ike a bit more. Or, I guess it could totally rattle his cage more than it already is…
