There is trade speculation surrounding Ike Davis.
Most would have thought Ike Davis would have been a New York Met for the majority of his career.
However, that doesn't seem to be the case, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com.
While Davis is a young, promising star at first base, the fact remains there is still a struggle to find a spot for Lucas Duda, whose natural position is first base.
The Mets are disappointed with Davis' unwillingness to make changes based on coaching advice. Although he is personable and by no means a troublemaker, they also worry — fairly or unfairly — he is out too late after games, and that could influence other young players.
Regardless of whether the Mets are worried about Davis, they still must find a position for Duda because he's not cutting it in the outfield. He's had five errors in the outfield and doesn't have the speed to track down balls in the gap.
While both seem to be the same type of hitter, the fact remains that Davis is more established than Duda. That means the Mets could possibly get more for him.
