When you call up a rookie you don't want to put too much pressure on him. It's best to take it a bit slow and see how he responds. But the way the media and the Mets are fawning for him to be called up almost as if he's the answer to their season.
That's New York media for you. They've been overrating and overhyping their prospects quite abit.
I'm not saying that Ike is overrated. Just saying people need to lay off and let him play baseball and not put extra pressure on him. He has a chance to be a pretty good player for Mets.
