Talks between the Mets and Orioles were not just limited to Ike Davis says Educardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun.

In addition to Davis, the two teams also discussed Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda, however as was the case with Ike, negotiations never got very far due to the Mets intent on acquiring a top pitching prospect from the O’s like Eduardo Rodriguez. Encina says both teams will likely “stick with what they’ve got”.

The Mets have been intent on getting top-flight young pitching in return for Davis–Tyler Thornburg from the Brewers, Nick Kingham from the Pirates–and it appears Sandy Alderson’s asking price has not yet decreased.

I wouldn’t expect the Mets to deal Murphy, barring being blown away by an offer; or Duda unless they had a viable replacement to platoon with, if not start over, Davis.
