The Ike Davis nightmare continues

20 Comments

Ike Davis entered tonight’s series opener against the Braves hitting .147 with a .481 OPS. The first baseman has heard rumors of a possible demotion to Triple-A amid an avalanche of criticism. He did nothing to alleviate concerns as he earned the illustrious golden sombrero, striking out four times tonight. As ESPN Stats & Info notes, it is his third golden sombrero of the season which puts him in interesting company:

Davis has exactly one hit in his last 42 trips to the plate — a single to center against Edwin Jackson of the Cubs on May 17.
