WATCH: New Pirate Ike Davis crushes grand slam against Reds

A great way to endear yourself to a new team is to get a big hit, for lots of runs, against a division (and regional) rival, at home.  Check (home run), check (make that a grand slam), check (Boo Reds), and check (Ike loves PNC Park) for new Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Ike Davis.  The newly liked Ike tees off against the rival Cincinnati Reds to send the Pirates to a 2-run lead (from...

Mets’ Ike Davis Is Now Pirates’ Ike Davis: Shrewd Move For Buccos

Something shocking happened. You’re not going to believe me. It’s incredible, unbelievable, and totally could not have been for seen: the Pirates plan of platooning Gaby Sanchez and Travis Ishikawa at first base isn’t working out. Crazy, right? As of April 19, Ishikawa is batting a paltry .206 with one homer and Sanchez is raking to the tune of  .226 with 3 bombs. Sanchez’s...

The New York Mets trade Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates

The New York Mets have traded Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates for right handed pitcher Zack Thornton and a player to be named later. This ends Ike’s brief 5 year career with the Mets.

Some thoughts following a surprisingly early-season trade by the Pittsburgh Pirates to land 1B Ike Davis from the New York Mets. 1.  Props to GM Neal Huntington for quickly realizing the Travis Ishikawa/Gaby Sanchez platoon wasn’t working, even though he probably should’ve realized that over the offseason,...
