When the Mets drafted Ike Davis with the 18th pick in the first round back in 2008, they thought they were getting the first baseman of the future. Things haven't gone exactly as planned with Davis, as he is hitting .242 in his first four seasons at the big league level. While Davis certainly has the potential to be good, this may be his last season with the Mets. The Mets are "likely" going to shop both Lucas Duda and Ike Davis this offseason, according Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. They will shop both players and see who may land the largest package in a trade that would help fill one of the teams holes. Rubin polled nine scouts on who they would rather have play first base in 2014 and seven of those nine scouts took Duda over Davis. While that doesn't mean that Davis is the odd man out, it does show that he doesn't have has much value as he once had. If neither of them is dealt, Rubin says that Duda could open the season with Triple-A Las Vegas. Both of these players will likely be shopped this offseason, but a trade is not guaranteed. On the season, Davis is hitting .205 with nine home runs and 33 RBI's. This was his worst statistical season in the big leagues and he may be done with the Mets. Duda is hitting .225 with 15 home runs and 33 RBI's on the season and had a better statistical season for the Mets in less games than Davis.
