Much ado about nothing.  A clearly agitated Ike Davis responded angrily this morning to a back-page New York Post story that claimed he concealed an oblique injury from Mets management and trainers last season because he was struggling offensively and did not want to come out of the lineup.

Davis addressed the media in general and the Post’s Mike Puma, who authored the article, in the Mets’ clubhouse on Monday morning, calling the story a fabrication.
