The Mets won’t trade Ike Davis

Back in September Adam Rubin reported that the Mets were considering shopping Ike Davis. And you knew there was probably something to it given that, at the same time, the team floated stuff about his character and work ethic to give them cover. It’s like the Mets are the Red Sox’ padawan learner in this regard.

To the extent they were still considering that, however, it’s all over now, reports Joel Sherman:

The Mets are so determined to become a more power-oriented team that they have decided they will not trade Ike Davis, The Post has learned. “If we trade him, where do we find those 32 homers?” one team executive said.

That’s especially true now that Lucas Duda has a broken wrist, though Sherman says that the Mets came to this conclusion before Duda hurt himself. Probably because they remembered that, oh yeah, Davis is younger and better than Duda is.

    Thank you LORD!!! The alleged plan was to trade Ike & have Duda play first. If 2012 showed us anything it was that Duda is not a very good player & he will be nothing more than a AAA, journeyman, bench player.
