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. It seems like Sandy Alderson would have dealt him if he...
