NEW YORK -- Ike Davis got the word that he had been summoned to the big leagues rather late on Monday. He had little more than an hour to leave the park, return to his living quarters, grab a few things -- six shirts and a book -- and catch his Buffalo-to-LaGuardia flight. His car and most of his belongings were left behind.
The Mets dress for travel, so a suit will be necessary after the homestand ends on Wednesday. Davis made arrangements to have some of his belonging brought to Queens on Friday, and the purchase of a suit may be in the offing.
