Pirates DFA Ike Davis, clear path for Pedro Alvarez - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ike Davis did not develop into the player the Mets hoped he’d become. Still, he would be a useful platoon partner for a team like the Marlins.

NY Daily News: Really trying to understand why I was so wrong about NY Mets’ Lucas Duda. What are the challenges of separating reporting from personal feelings?

He made similar comments in many interviews, including one I conducted with him last September. Duda had just hit two homers in a game, and we began with what I thought was a softball to warm him up.

“Lucas, when you first came up, you were open about how hitting in big spots made you nervous. Now that you’ve been in the league a few years, is it easier?”

His answer? Laughter, followed by, “No.”

A moment later, when the camera was off, Duda dropped his head, said, “tough question, bro,” and sulked away. Seriously. Eeyore.
