IKE DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ike Davis could be headed elsewhere this winter

Pirates Rumors: Ike Davis trade or non-tender?

Projections could only be made based on strong opinion, rather than history.

Ike Davis, the OBP machine

At the age of 26 (27 on March 22), Ike Davis is a bust. Once a fixture at first base and a rising star for the New York Mets, Davis’ star crashed back to Earth.

Not Trading Ike Davis May be Mets’ Best Move

As we inch towards pitchers and catchers reporting, it would appear that Ike Davis will be the starter at first base when the Mets kick off their season. Unlike many Mets’ fans, I am happy he’s still here. While the last couple of years have undoubtedly been frustrating, we all know that the talent is in there somewhere.
