BMF has been resisting the temptation to say Lucas Duda can replace Ike Davis - but after seeing Duda tumble into the stands ala Ike while snagging a foul pop I think it’s safe to say Ike Davis has been replaced.
This is no dis to Ike. I love rooting for the kid and I truly hope this leg injury doesn’t ruin his career. It’s not supposed to be career threatening but it wasn’t supposed to be more than a couple of days so…
Another bow should be taken by Duda after powdering a HR to right, collecting 3 hits, a BB, and getting robbed of an RBI when his rope up the middle hit the ump
I’ll even call it a statement win from Terry Collins’ NY Mets. And the statement was: we don’t care if we’re 11 out of the Wild card. We love the game and we’re playing our asses off.
I love it when Thole hits. I’m convinced this kid can be a productive bat as a Big League catcher he just needs time. And nights like his 3-3 with a HR and 3 RBI made me know he’s gonna be worth the wait.
Awesome for Izzy to ring up save #300 as a Met. I really like having him on this team.
