Mets Looking For Young Power Hitter, Won’t Trade Ike
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets will not be trading Ike Davis, despite the original plan of possibly moving him to capitalize on his value and allow Lucas Duda to play first.
Sandy Alderson has a track record of putting high value on the ability to hit for power, and if R.A. Dickey were to be traded, Alderson would be looking for a power hitter, preferably in the outfield.
Even before the Duda injury, the perfect plan involved the two combining for 50-60 home runs, but the Mets realize the quickest way to turn a team around is by hitting more home runs.
