Sad Mets are sad : (
“We had a good conversation before the game abut trying to have fun again. For a while there it wasn’t quite fun,” said Ike Davis, who was 2-for-3 with a walk and snapped an 0-for-26 skid with runners in scoring position. “Try to smile more and laugh more on the field. Most Mets fans probably hate that, but it’s not going to help me perform better by being miserable. The new thought process now is to have fun. Today is fun. I’m 1-for-1 on the new approach of having fun.”
"Everything that can go wrong for me is going wrong." - Ike Davis
"Once upon a time, Ike Davis was a very good first baseman. But, he has made some huge mistakes out there lately, and today, his whole mountain came crumbling down … I mean, the offensive slump is one thing, but if it’s being taken out into the field too and Ike is going to make these kinds of mental mistakes, it’s hard to continue justify playing him.” - Michael Baron, MetsBlog
“As for Ike, when it rains, it pours for him. He cost the Mets with a mental mistake in the first inning, and did nothing at the plate afterwards to make up for it. … What more can you say at this point? It’s been a horrific season for him so far, and it’s starting to impact his entire game. If he’s not going to be productive on defense, either – which has been the case over the last few days – it’s hard to justify a place for him right now.”
