The New York Mets have come together with some other teams in this league about a possible trade that involves first baseman Ike Davis.
Davis said back in November that he didn’t want to be traded by the New York Mets but knows that it’s a business no matter how much he dislikes the situation. This Mets organization seems to be serious about contending next year as they’ve signed outfielders Chris Young and Curtis Granderson.
Those may not be some big name bats, but they are a huge improvement to what they had in their starting lineup this season.
The Mets feel as if Davis isn’t a solid lock at first base and would like to see what they could get back from him. Now that they’re talking to the Milwaukee Brewers, they’re eyeing a specific target.

As you can see in Ken Rosenthal’s Tweet, Tyler Thornburg happens to be the player that the Mets could be asking for. Thornburg posted a beautiful 2.02 ERA over 66 2/3 innings of work for the Brewers and could get placed in their starting rotation during Spring Training.
It’ll be interesting to see who the Mets would get back for Davis if this trade actually happens.
