Ike Davis Applesauce - Davis rises to #18, Mets look at free agent pitchers, Dukes is Piazza

New, comments

Yesterday was a pretty slow news day. Some good little stories in there though. Enjoy.

Meet the Mets

Mets Walk-Offs begins a countdown of the 60 most memorable home runs in Met history.

Matt Cerrone argues that it's going to be a buyer's market for pitching this off-season after looking at the free agent names floating around. I can't wait for the 4 year - $50 million offer to Doug Davis.

Be sure to check out this season's final Amazin' Tuesday hosted by the Two Boots Tavern and organized by Faith and Fear in Flushing. 

Baseball America ranked Ike Davis #18 on their final Hot Sheet of the season and Kirk Nieuwenhuis as a fast riser.

Around the NL East

The Marlins fell to the Cardinals and dropped to 7 games behind Philadelphia.

JA Happ is working his way back from injury, completing a side bullpen session without setback.

Javier Vazquez has been named the National League Player of the Week.

Rob Dibble thinks Elijah Dukes is like Mike Piazza at least in one regard.

Around MLB

New accusations surround Miguel Tejada; this time Pirates closer Matt Capps says he's stealing signs. Last I checked, every team does that.

Twins first baseman and former AL MVP Justin Morneau is done for the remainder of the season.

The Dodgers have activated everyone's favorite reliever Guillermo Mota.

Pat Burrell pleads to the Tampa fan base that he is sorry for this season.

This bad economy has affected minor league baseball as well; for the first time in six years, minor league baseball did not set an attendance record.
