If scoring one run against the Pirates wasn't bad enough for you, the news on Ike Davis is that he'll be wearing a boot and doing no running for three weeks.

Adam Rubin mixes things up a bit with the never-ending beating of the "one of your favorite players will be traded this year" drum, saying if Reyes stays, David Wright will be traded. Yawn.
