Psyike!

A brief update on the Ike Davis situation: Yes he’s been called up and may start this evening against the Cubs, while Tobi Stoner heads back to Buffalo with our thanks and a tough luck loss. Think Jerry’s a little obsessed with creating eighth inning magic? Jeez.

As for why you’re here: The mets.com roster lists Davis as wearing 29, which Stoner just surrendered. (Now I see the press release reportting same). Isn’t it my fate to campaign for a guy to get Keith Hernandez‘ number only to see them give up Dave Magadan‘s instead. I don’t much get into that number, 29. It’s Steve Trachsel. It’s Steve Bieser. It’s some guy named Steve.

At any rate, tonight we really don’t have to worry about it since Davis will be wearing No. 42, along with the rest of his Met teammates in Part II of Chuck Taylor Appreciation Night.

    And, as I said in response to the last post, 29 was the immortal and David Wells prototype Mickey Lolich…

    I was hoping that he was going to get 10. A power number.

    29 is more of a pitcher’s number. I can’t imagine him wearing 29 for long.

    Maybe something will change

    Maybe something will change between now and tomorrow night…

    His Dad wore 39 for most of

    His Dad wore 39 for most of his career, and that belongs to Parnell, so 29 is close enough I suppose.

    Not a hitter’s number? Have we not forgotten Greg Luzinski?

    A more apropos example is Ken Singleton, who wore 29 with the Mets, Expos, and Orioles…as much as I liked Rusty Staub, they never should have traded Singleton for him…

    From Mets.com “Davis wore No.

    From Mets.com “Davis wore No. 42, like everyone else involved in the game on Monday night, as part of the Mets’ belated celebration of Jackie Robinson Day. He has been assigned No. 29. He’d prefer No. 20, which is worn by Howard Johnson, but he won’t ask for it. Being a number on a big league roster is enough.”

    interesting

    Hojo deferred to Shawn Green who preferred 20, but there shouldn’t be a rush. Ike Davis will be around longer than Hojo will.

    Why change?

    What’s the rush to change his number? Maybe he’s like Dave Magadan and doesn’t care…
