Ike Davis will make his much awaited major league debut tonight and bat 6th. Jose Reyes gets a much needed breather since he looked pretty tired yesterday. He was behind the fastball all last night.
A quote from Manager Jerry regarding Mr Davis " I don’t see him as a savior, I see him as a compliment.”
The Cubs are in a slump themselves and Sweet Lou will rearrange his lineup to help jump start the Cubbies who are 5-7 .
The Cubs send Randy Wells who is 1-0 this year. After allowing six hits in six innings of a 2-0 win in Atlanta in his season debut, Wells gave up four runs and 10 hits with seven strikeouts in Wednesday's 7-6 home win over Milwaukee, but didn't get a decision. Wells pitched against the Mets last year allowing 2 runs on seven hits in 6 innings.
