    RHP RP Zack Thornton and a PTNB are heading to the Mets in the deal . Thornton is a AAA 25-year-old reliever who got to AAA last year.

    Unfortunately, good move for the Pirates. Pretty solid platoon partner.

    My guess is the PTNL is going to be something fairly decent. Davis looks a little lost now (except when facing JJ Hoover ) but he did just hit 32 HRs 2 years ago. If they don't give up much it could be a great deal for Pittsburgh.

    6:22pm: The PTBNL is "fairly significant," tweets Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. It is worth bearing in mind, as Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com points out on Twitter, that 2013 draft picks still cannot technically be included in a deal.
    I think the Mets killed his value, first by all but saying they were going to trade him, and then by benching him once they decided to hold on to him to start the season.

    Hitting .208 on the season. Unfortunately his one shining moment so far was a walk-off granny to beat the Reds.

    If the REDS finish behind the Bucs b/c of Ike Davis, then they have bigger issues than Ike Davis. Iverson might say, "IKE DAVIS? We're talking IKE DAVIS?" Started hot but has really cooled off, and as 1B, in his career, Does not faze me one bit. Not to put down Ike. Decent and only 27. Hope the change of scenery thing does not help him (sorry, Ike).

    A little tangent for you baseball nuts. Ike's father, Ron Davis, pitched in 11 MLB seasons. All as a reliever. He first came up with the NYY. In his first full season (1979) he had a record of 14-2! Holy. Hard to follow that up. He didn't in 1980, but did manage a 9-3 record lol. For those counting that is a 23-5 record in his first two full seasons and his career record since he was 0-0 in 1978 in a brief stint with the big team. 24 yrs old and a relief stud. Makes me wonder what the Elias Bureau shows for the top win% after the first 28 career decisions of all time? Anyhow Ron spent the next 8 years with 5 different teams and had a 24-48 record during that time. Even got paid $750k in 1986 while posting a 8.59 ERA / 2.011 WHIP that season. Hard to believe and kind of funny the Twins & Cubs (he was traded in mid-AUG) let him appear in 53 games that year. Started hot in his first 2-3 years and then cooled way down. Makes you wonder if that is in the Davis genes. You do not expect of course that Ike will take the turn that Dad did. But as REDS fans we hope it never nears that .900 OPS range again. Thought I'd share the weird father Ron 1st 2-yr thing. One of those things we sometimes notice and makes us enjoy the game.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    IIRC, Ron Davis was the setup man for Goose Gossage with the Yankees, forming a formidable 1-2 punch at the end of the pen.
    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
