Finally some action on the roster front for the Mets.
Ike Davis, alongside Mike Baxter and Robert Carson, has been sent down to AAA Las Vegas. Boom! I guess that was the move everybody was waiting for.
Let’s not kid ourselves, something had to happen and Ike’s the easiest target by far. That’s not to say I think the call ups (Cowgill, Edgin and Satin) will be a lot better or even help the team, but … well, yeah. I guess everybody’s running out of patience. You could make the case for a lot of other players to go to Las Vegas, but you can’t change 2/3 of the roster, can you?
I just hope Ike finds his swing. When he’s playing good he’s just too much fun to watch.
