Earlier today, I took part in a keeper league draft and Ike Davis was taken in the early rounds, and initially, I thought it was too high. It’s hard to believe that we’re already entering Davis’ fourth year in the big leagues. After an absolutely atrocious early part of 2012, he responded in a big way, and he ended up with a quite impressive 32 homers and 90 RBI, but if this team is going to be competitive, we’ll need even more. Davis can hit the ball out of some National Parks, but he needs to work on his on-base percentage. .308, which he had in 2012, just isn’t going to cut it. He needs to provide valuable protection for David Wright, or opposing teams will not give the newly-anointed captain anything to hit. What is realistic to expect? I think we can expect 30 homers, 100 RBI and a .265 batting average. If his OBP is around .350, that would make for a HUGE difference. That equals more chances for the guys behind him to drive him in, and he would likely get more chances as the lineup would be more likely to turn over. Davis is still young, and he’s not a free agent until after 2017, but is he going to be the Mets’ franchise first baseman? I think he could be. He’s just got to put in the work. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below. The post Which Ike Davis Will We See? appeared first on The Daily Stache.
