Meet the Mets
A tornado warning and a downpour forced a rainout upon the Mets on Tuesday evening, so at least they didn't lose. Is that a consolation? With the way they've played the last two months, yes it is. The game will be made up on Thursday evening.
Despite the lack of a game, there was plenty of news from the "anonymous sources" who frequent Citi Field. Apparently, the Mets are disappointed with Ike Davis' "hard-partying" ways and his lack of coachability and would consider dealing him in the offseason. Davis talked to the media about it and was unsure of what the source was talking about.
In further analysis of the Davis speculation, Eno tries to decide whether it makes sense to trade Ike, while Ted Berg also briefly contemplates the subject. Howard Megdal wonders what these rumors say about the Mets?
Monday's news of the Mets' agreement with the Las Vegas 51's is still fresh and Toby Hyde took a look at the potential impact of Cashman Field on the development of the organization's young players.
Thanks to their second half ineptitude, the Mets are closing in on setting a dubious record -- of course, a record that they already own.

Jose Reyes collected a walk-off hit, as the Marlins defeated the Braves 4-3. This comes after Jose was disappointed by the bobblehead doll that doesn't look like him at all. They'll be without Giancarlo Stanton for this series, though. Meanwhile, the Nationals and Dodgers were rained out and will play two this evening.
