The New York Mets apparently cannot make up their mind about their intentions with first baseman Ike Davis. Either that or they cannot make up their mind about how to leak their intentions with Davis to baseball reporters and writers.
The Mets do not anticipate a deal involving Davis. They want both of their first basemen (Lucas Duda the other) to get healthy first…The Orioles remain interested.”
In 2014 Davis will try to level out what has been an inconsistent career thus far. In 103 games last season Davis batted .205/.326/.334. His .661 OPS simply won’t be good enough, but at age 27 he still offers enough upside for teams to think he can turn things around and offer some production during his prime years.
Whether he does so with the Mets or with a team like the Orioles, the Milwaukee Brewers, or the Pittsburgh Pirates is something that remains to be seen.
