The New York Mets have a lot of positions they have to improve at, even third base.
They’re obvious buyers when it comes down to either the trade block or the market. While they’re eyeing guys like Curtis Granderson, Nelson Cruz and Jhonny Peralta, they’re focused on moving forward with Lucas Duda at first base.
Now where does that leave Ike Davis? Well anything can really happen, but he may be traded in the near future. Now according to ESPN.com, Davis doesn’t want to be traded, he wants to stay with the New York Mets.
I just want a chance to play. Honestly, I’ve loved my time with the Mets. I’m still a Met right now and I don’t want to get traded. But that part of the game is not up to us. You want to stay, but you don’t have any say in it.” Ike Davis said in an interview.
Davis is right, when a team wants to trade you, you really have no say in it. You just have to be humble and move on. But there’s always a team out there that wants you, so there’s a bright side to this.
We’ll have to wait and see if the Mets will fulfill his wish and keep him, or dump him off to another franchise.
