Well folks, it looks like after a few weeks of having to watch Mike Jacobs do absolutely nothing, the powers that be have had enough. Not like every single Met fan could have predicted this during spring training but the Mets have ended the Mike Jacobs era and will be soon to call up prized rookie Ike Davis.
Lets face it, this team will need a miracle if they are to get themselves in a pennant race, and Mike Jacobs, Fernando Tatis and Frank Catalanotto are not the answer. Let’s get Davis up to NY and see if he is more David Wright then he is Lastings Milledge.
I have questioned the Mets all spring training, how Davis at age 23 and played for a major college program and is the son of a former major leaguer is not ready but 20 year olds, Ruben Tejeda and Jenrry Mejia were. I think Davis is mature, has the baseball IQ and will have his ups and downs but is ready for this promotion.
The Mets are said to be waiting until later this week to promote as Davis as they are “waiting for the bullpen to straighten out” after the 20 inning game on Saturday. I hope that is sooner then later and I know I will be ready to jump in front of the TV for Ike Davis at bats and he may just spark that attendance that has been slumping at Citi Field. Now my next question is what number is Ike going to wear so I can order my Ike Davis jersey!
