Is Ike Davis back?

Chris McShane at Amazin’ Avenue investigates.

Undoubtedly, this has been Davis’ most promising stretch of the season. This month, Davis is walking more, striking out less and enjoying a better batting average on balls in play than he did in his woeful April and May. But as I think I said on the podcast, since we’ve been burned by signs of life from Davis before, at this point it’ll take real, lasting life from Davis for me to be convinced he is all straightened out again. And a week and a half worth of good games — as promising as they’ve been — doesn’t seem enough to say that for sure.

But then again, two months doesn’t make for a very convincing sample either. Baseball be baseball.
