Ike Starting To Get Platooned

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 2-4 with 1 double (his 10th), 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the A's.

Batting cleanup, Ryan Braun was 1-3 with 1 BB, 1 double (his 28th), and 1 run scored against the Rockies.

Gabe Kapler was 0-1 against the Orioles.

Brad Ausmus was 0-2 against the Braves.

Ike Davis had the night off. It looks like Jerry Manuel is starting to platoon Ike against lefties, even though he has held his own against them (.749 OPS).

Scott Feldman pitched 2 2/3 innings and gave up 4 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 2 BBs (1 IBB) against the Red Sox.

I see Ike Davis as an anchor for the Mets for a long time. Platooning him now is stupid. But the Mets' manager should have been gone a long, long time ago.
