NEW YORK -- By picking up the victory Friday evening, Mets reliever Hisanori Takahashi became just the third player in the past decade to notch at least 10 wins and eight saves in a season, and the first since Francisco Cordero turned the trick with the Rangers and Brewers back in 2006.
Takahashi, who has spent time as a starter, long man, middle reliever, setup man and closer this season, can become a free agent after this season.
Suffice it to say, his value is rising.
"He's been tremendous," Mets manager Jerry Manuel said. "He's a guy that, coming out of the 'pen, he doesn't flinch. He just pitches. He's been very, very impressive."
Davis moving up Mets' rookie charts
NEW YORK -- Ike Davis continues to move up the Mets' rookie lists.
With a solo home run in the fourth inning Friday, his 19th of the season, Davis tied Ron Swoboda for second place on the team's all-time rookie list. Darryl Strawberry holds the Mets' rookie record with 26 home runs in 1983.
Davis also knocked in his 71st run, tying Ty Wigginton for second-most all-time amongst Mets rookies. Strawberry holds that record, too, with 74.
Davis tied Ty Wigginton's club rookie record with 53 extra-base hits, and now holds the club rookie mark with 228 total bases.
