Torturous. Gut-wrenching. Unwatchable. These are three of the numerous – and PG-rated – words that come to mind when describing the ongoing New York Mets season. And there has been no one who has contributed more (less?) to the campaign of horror than Ike Davis, who found himself demoted to the team’s minor league affiliate in Las Vegas yesterday after yet another dismal performance.
As sorry fans of the blue and orange here at Food Republic, we’ve put together a roundup of our favorite Las Vegas stories – from tips on getting drunk to ways to find romance – for the man sporting a .161 batting average (believe it or not, it has been on somewhat of an incline in recent weeks). While the $3.125 million first baseman may never learn how to hit a curveball, at least he’ll have some, um, welcome distractions, in Sin City. Good luck Ike, and we hope that what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas for too long.
