A Satin and Davis Platoon At First Base Could Prove Very Productive

Kenny asks… Let’s say the Mets don’t trade Ike Davis and he’s with the team come Spring Training, does it mean that Josh Satin is out of a job? Joe D. replies… There’s still plenty of time for the Mets to trade Davis, but let’s assume they end up keeping him. My hunch is that […]
