Mets running low on luck

Lady Luck appears to have deserted the Mets organization. Yesterday, B-Mets starter pitched the best game this season of any player in the Mets system. In seven innings he didn't give up a hit or an earned run and struck out six. Unfortunately, Brown didn't win the game. The B-Mets lost 3-2 because reliever Julio A. De La Cruz surrendered two runs in the eighth. The team continues to linger in last place in the Eastern League's Northern division.

It's surprising that De La Cruz is even on the B-Mets roster: He's 28 years old.

Baseball America had this writeup today on Ike Davis:
"Mets used the 18th overall pick in last year's draft to select Arizona State 1B Ike Davis, mostly on the strength of his power projection. The key word is "projection," because the 6-foot-5 lefthanded batter provided precious little power in the short-season New York-Penn League in his debut, batting .256 with zero home runs in 58 games. With high Class A St. Lucie this season, the 22-year-old Davis has just four home runs, but his 16 doubles are tops in the Florida State League. He did launch two homers this week, however, in batting .350/.458/.800 (7-for-20) with a double, a triple, six RBIs and a 4-to-3 walk-to-strikeout ratio."
