For once, a Mets game wasn't a total snoozefest. Yes, I watched Ike Davis make his major league debut with the Mets last night. Just so you know, if Davis is a success, I will credit his father, ex-Yankee Ron Davis, with making it all happen. If he isn't a hit, I'll blame the Metropolitans!
I even watched the end of the game, when Jeff Francouer doused Ike Davis with a pie in the face. Now that such things are so well known in Yankeeland, thanks to last year's walkoff win whipped cream tradition, I think I can be a critic about the Mets' version of the pie:
* They should have used whipped cream, and not shaving cream. Tastes a heck of a lot better!
* Where was the element of surprise? Frenchy was about as subtle as a banjo.
* And finally, Jeff should have run when delivering the pie. It makes it much more fearsome.
What do you think? Tell us about it!
