UPDATE: Ike Davis News Here, and Initial Thoughts on Fallout

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, it’s of the “You better sit down” variety, rather than “Daddy flew home early, aand brought us pie!” kind of news. More as I hear specifics.
UPDATE: Davis will be shut down for three weeks. If he doesn’t heal by then, season-ending surgery. Can’t imagine how much David Wright is kicking himself right now.
Initial thoughts: Daniel Murphy can’t be wasted at first base any longer, since that isn’t a position his offense can justify. Lucas Duda, on the other hand, is an option, especially with Jason Bay showing signs of life (and with a contract that demands he get every chance to find his swing).
Think it’s time for Ruben Tejada to go back to Triple-A, and give Murphy that long-overdue chance to hold down second base. He’ll be 27 next year. Time to find out if he’s a regular player or not.
