Is Ike Davis’ Agent Salivating?

An article by posted on December 3, 2013

I know one player was a free agent and another is a second year arbitration eligible player, but I have to wonder… did Sandy set the market for .200 hitters that strike out a lot?

With the current market “sticker shock” and the $7.25 million contract that the Mets just gave Chris Young, is Ike Davis agent salivating?

Tale of the Tape:

Chris Young versus Ike Davis

Batting average – .200 versus .205
Home Runs – 12 versus 9
Base hits – 67 versus 65
RBI – 40 versus 33
Extra base hits – 33 versus 23
OBP – .280 versus .326
Slugging – .379 versus .334
OPS – .659 versus .661
Plate appearances – 375 versus 377
Walks – 36 versus 57
Strikeouts – 93 versus 101
Runs scores – 46 versus 37
Games played – 107 versus 103

If Ike made $3.12 million in 2013 and Sandy and company value someone with nearly identical production at $7.25 million, is Ike doing the Dance of Joy?
