Can Ike Davis stay healthy in 2012?

There is a great deal of uncertainty as the Mets prepare to head to Port St. Lucie, FL for spring training in a few weeks.

Can Johan Santana make it all the way back from shoulder surgery for a torn anterior capsule? Will David Wright be traded? Can Ike Davis return from his freak ankle injury and stay healthy all season?  How will the Mets recover from the loss of Jose Reyes? Will the shorter fences at Citi Field aid the ultra-disappointing Jason Bay?

Questions galore.

I'm sure many pundits (myself included) feel the Amazins' are destined for a last place finish in the very difficult National League East. Their financial situation is dire. They are devoid of superior talent at most positions. The fan base is discouraged and pessimistic.
