Welcome to NY, Ike.

Just heard the news he is en route to NYC. Now they need to call up FMart and maybe even Chris Carter and we can start watching the future. It would be better than what we are watching out there now!

Hopefully, Ike doesn't put too much pressure on himself to be a savior.

Not since Wright and Reyes came up have we had a more anticipated rookie call up from the minors to fill in a huge position for the future. A huge LH first baseman with power can make a lineup so much more impressive.

I am very impressed with how Ike is playing, especially going the other way when the pitch is on the outside portion of the plate.

Keep it up Ike!!!!

I am very impressed with his hitting, fielding and all around attitude. He reminds me a lot of John Olerud. I will never understand why he was not on the opening day roster but hey...glad he's a Met. Hopefully for a long time!!!

Looks like he is turning into a fine Major League ballplayer. Above average defensively and seems to be getting better and better offensively. Should easily go down as the Mets best all around first basemen since John Olerud.

Only the Met doctors can turn a bone bruise into season ending micro fracture surgery. Hate to see what these doctors would do with a paper cut.

Only this twisted organization can have a player fall on his butt and have him miss an entire year with a leg injury that was misdiagnosed. You can't make it up. The actors who PLAYED doctors on M*A*S*H could do a better job with these guys.

The man proved on a number of occasions willing to give up his body in order to get an out. Given the incompetence of the Mets' medical staff, would he be as willing to continue to be that way if and when he comes back?

He twisted his ankle camping under a pop-up and was out for the rest of the season. Only the Mets...

He's likely to be a bust...too many holes in his swing. Why can't fans seem to see that? This is why Alderson wants to trade him and will!

I have never heard of Valley Fever until today. Anyway, he looked healthy when he was interviewed on SNY a few days ago.

Apparently the Mets are committed to Davis at first going forward. At least, that's what the commentators are saying. This means that we're going to be spending the next several years agonizing through each summer as Davis struggles to get his batting average up to .200. Then, when he reaches .200 in mid-August (as he's done this year), the commentators are going to start blathering about how Ike has reached an important plateau and how his confidence is sure to get a boost and so on and so forth. This talk about confidence is a new arrow in the Mets' quiver; they used to treat Lucas Duda the same way--every time Duda hit the ball (or caught the ball) people would talk about how it was wonderful for his confidence...until they finally sent him back to the minors.

Ike is walking a great deal these days because pitchers are throwing him junk way out of the strike zone expecting him to swing. The fact is, he's hardly swinging at all. He's stopped hitting home runs. I suggest that the Mets save money by sending up to bat a plastic mannequin that looks like Dave Kingman, and then when the mannequin walks, Davis can pinch run.

I think it's well known among Mets insiders (and all of MLB for that matter) that last year Ike publicly said that he couldn't identify a curveball out of the pitcher's hand- in essence, saying that he couldn't really hit them. I remember Howie Rose expressing shock that he would say such a thing publicly. Even on his last home run for the Mets, which was a curveball, I remember in the interview on the field just after he hit the grand slam, he said something like- I don't know what it was, but I hit it well...

Well, even if that's true, I think he was a little too outspoken and honest about his inability to hit breaking pitches. That notwithstanding, I put some of the blame on Dave Hudgens, the (thankfully) former Mets hitting coach. At best, Hudgens failed Ike. At worst, he ruined him.

I say that because when Ike came up in 2010, he seemed like he was capable of playing every day and eventually hitting .300 with power. Back then, he brought a rush of energy to the team. I went to Citi Field soon after he got called up, just to see him play in person. I liked Ike. Remember that? I like Ike? Well, I still do, even if he plays for the Pirates now. He's a nice guy, that's why.

I have good memories of him, and yes, he was very frustrating to watch last year and in the first half of 2012. Other than that, he was great. Maybe he'll finally learn how to hit a curveball now that he has a new hitting coach. Too bad the Mets traded him before Lamar Johnson could work with him on a regular basis.

Wow. Traded to the Pirates because, after months of frustration while patiently waiting for Ike to live up to the potential the Mets' organization saw in him, he may be going to the World Series. Talk about your typical Mets kismet!
