Does Kane Davis remind anyone else of "Nuke" Laloosh from Bull Durham or is it just me? Guy can throw hard as heck but can't seem to find the plate.

Kane Davis is absolutely unhittable...as long as the game is a blowout. Put him in an 8-1 lead or deficit, and he'll strike out the side. Let him pitch in a close game, however, and he becomes batting practice. I'll never forget Larry Walker's bomb off him at Shea in the 13th inning. That thing was at least 500 feet.

One more thing about Davis. He has appeared in 16 games this season. The Mets' record in those games is 4-12. When Davis appears, a loss is sure to follow.

Whose idea was it to give this guy a contract? Was there something there that indicated he was miraculously going to have a big season? Sure, he can whip it up there at 97 MPH, but it's flat and straight and as we all know, any major league hitter can hit a fastball that is flat and straight. Kane's 7.07 ERA is proof of this. I tell you watching him pitch makes me think of guys like Jerry DiPoto or Anthony Young. Guys who were ever-turning-around...to see baseballs flying all over the ballpark. Now, of course, he's shelved for the remainder of the season and maybe that's not such a bad thing. Watching him pitch was often painful.

An announcement from the Fraternity Of Met Fans (F.O.M.F):

We'd like to present Kane Davis with the annual, dishonorable Mel Rojas award for worst relief pitcher in a single season, 2002. Former receipients include:

Mel Rojas for 1998, Kenny Rogers 1999, Rich Rodriguez for the 2000 campaign, and Donne Wall in 2001. And now Kane Davis 2002, 97 MPH up to the plate, double that when it's on its way out of the ballpark (just ask Larry Walker).

The minute I saw this guy in spring traning, it looked like he was throwing hurt. There was something about the way he pitched that looked like his arm was stiff. I think he later was injured,but it seems like he never did anything with Colorado either.

Does anyone know if Davis is camp anywhere? Haven't seen any transaction data on him, so I'm guessing he's still Mets property. After last year's injury, he was supposed to be rehabbed in time for spring training.

As for Davis' ineffectiveness, I think it was less injury-related and more Valentine-related -- Davis was lights-out against right-handed batters as usual, but he turned left-handed batters into superstars. Not to pick on Bobby V, as most MLB managers haven't embraced the "righty specialist" like they have the "lefty one-out specialist." If Davis heals up, he could be a Steve Reed-type player if used properly.

Whatever happened to this guy? He had surgery last year, was demoted to the minors in October but he doesn't show up on any roster in the minors and ESPN still has him listed as Met property. What's the deal?

Kane Davis is pitching the 2003 season with the Camden Riversharks in the Atlantic League. I saw his name on the roster. This is where he belongs.

I spent quite a bit of time with Kane Davis last season in Miami. I won't go into a lot of detail, but I can say is this: this guy is a nut. I love him to death. He has a good arm, when he is healthy, and I wish him all the best of luck in the future. Kane has a wonderful sence of humor, and I can't say enough good stuff about this guy. "Hey Kane.. are ya gonna? are ya gonna??" All smiles, KT!

Don't be knockin on Kane. I know the guy kinda good by playing a lot of ball with him. He's a good relief pitcher but his injuries is hurting him. I see him every week just about and he's slowly working on that injury. Good luck to ya, Kane.

Didn't do that great in his short time with the Mets, but the one stat that stands out for me is 24 strikeouts in 14 innings, that's just ridiculous. I guess nobody ever said that even if you give up runs that you can't get the outs by K's.

Kane returned to the major leagues on Friday 8/31/07 and tossed two scoreless innings for the Phils. Perhaps, he can salvage his career after all. I doubt that he he still throws as hard as he once did.

September 3, 2007
I did a double-take when I saw the name of Kane Davis in the wrap-up of last night's ballgames. He's with the Phillies now and took the loss. I didn't realize it, but he made it back last year, pitching in 15 games for the Brewers.

Judging by the numbers, he's still quite wild. But give him credit for hanging in there at age 32.

Kane Davis pitched on Mother's Day at Shea in 2002. It was a wet, cold miserable affair that went to extra innings, where he promptly lost the game. To this day, my mother and I, who were in attendance, still lament how Kane Davis ruined Mother's Day.

And it looks like it was his last game at a Met too.
