What Nobody Wants To Know About Ike Davis

First Baseman of the Future: Ike Davis or Lucas Duda?

By the end of last season, I was pretty excited about Ike Davis. He got off to a horrible start in 2012, but seemed to finish strong with 32 dingers. His average still sucked, but it seemed like things were finally starting to click for him. Now it’s a month into the season and he […]

I’m not going to draw you into another one of my diatribes on how the Mets needed to go after Adam Dunn last off season.
