Ike Davis attended the Thurman Munson Dinner on Tuesday night and he didn’t mince any words when asked to comment on whether the Mets should sign Michael Bourn
“As a guy who likes to drive in runners, I would love Michael Bourn to be on the bases when I’m hitting,” Davis said. “We’re going to see more fastballs if he was on the team. He’s definitely going to help out the second-hole hitter, David [Wright], me, in every aspect of the game. Yeah, it’d be great. He’s also an amazingly good defender out in centerfield. You always can wish, but you never know what’s going to happen.”
The Mets cleanup hitter was also a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN yesterday, where he had some interesting things to say about a variety of topics.
Davis said he’s looking forward to the upcoming season after a trying year in 2012. He admitted that the Valley Fever took a big toll on him, but also said he lost a lot of mobility while trying to recover from the ankle injury. The good news is that he feels great
