Ike Davis Pitches Perfect Inning

And you thought Joe was out of his mind for suggesting that Ike Davis be considered as a LOOGY when the first baseman was still with the Mets. Wait long enough, and some of his nutty ideas will come alive. (BTW, Joe says that Ike’s mechanics aren’t great — something about his arm being behind at foot strike.)

In case you missed it, Davis made his MLB debut on the mound in a 14-1 blowout — and pitched a perfect inning! Is this the start of the first two-way lefthanded slugger / southpaw pitcher since Babe Ruth? Not likely, but you never know …

    A replacement for Blevins?

    Ike’s having a pretty good start (hitting), good for him.

    Glad he is gone.

    Ike needed a fresh start, and better still in a different league. I can definitely see him as another good, cheap find off the scrap heap for Oakland. There’s a reason they keep winning – they know how to assemble teams.
