Number 29 Goes Down
Just as I finish lauding Mets' First baseman Ike Davis for his wherewithal and team spirit, the management has sent him down to the minors, optioning him to their Triple-A team in Las Vegas (along with two other players). Apparently, he wasn't finding his way back fast enough. The Mets say that this will give Ike the chance to find his confidence and his swing again without so much attention and pressure on him. Here's hoping they're right about that and, before long, number 29 finds his place back in the Mets' starting line up.
