Brewers 5, Pirates 3

What a weird game. First of all, this happened: That’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen in a baseball game…and it ended up costing the Pirates a  key run. That’s one of those signs that it just wasn’t their night. The Brewers made four errors on the night, and while they looked […]

Some thoughts on the Ike Davis/Zack Thornton trade

I didn’t get to see any of the Pirates and Brewers tonight, so I’m not going to spend any time recapping it; they left guys on base, Charlie Morton was frustrating, he gave up another homer to a righty, someone hit the cover off of the ball, and the Pirates lost. I’ll talk more about […]

Time for Lucas Duda to prove he belongs

NEW YORK -- Lucas Duda knows his job isn't really safe. It’s a little safer than it was prior to Friday, when the New York Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates and thus made it official that Duda is their chosen first baseman. But if the Mets thought the trade would take away any pressure Duda felt, well, it may not work. "Maybe a little bit," Duda said Saturday afternoon, before the Mets played the Atlanta Braves. "But I still have to produce.

Breaking: Ike Davis traded to Pittsburgh Pirates

After 18 months of teasing, the New York Mets have finally broken up with  Ike Davis, sending him to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league reliever Zach Thornton and a player to be named later.  According to CBS’s Jon Heyman, the PTBNL is “significant”, so there’s that. Right now, this trade looks like nothing to celebrate but not necessarily a loss.  The biggest part of this trade is that we never have to hear about the Davis/Lucas Duda drama at first base again (knock on wood). There’s still many questions that remain to be answered: Why wait until now?  Were better offers...
