 Mets set to call up first-base prospect Ike Davis  -
After designating first baseman Mike Jacobs for assignment Sunday, the Mets plan to call up Davis from Triple-A Buffalo sometime in the next several days -- possibly as soon as Monday -- according to a person familiar with the situation.

How often do you hear about a team designating their opening day clean-up hitter after just 12 games?  What happened after 12 games theat made the Mets feel that the guy they counted on driving in run less than 2 weeks ago, now isn't even worth having on their major league roster?  Geez.

Berkman expects to be back Tuesday -
Berkman, who went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double in his second of two rehab games on Sunday at Triple-A Round Rock, said he spoke with Mills from Chicago following the Astros' 3-2 win over the Cubs and told the manager he's ready to play. Berkman underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on March 13 and hasn't appeared in any games for the Astros this year.

Look out, the Astros are only 5 game out of first!
