While it is no guarantee, Davis may be on his way out of New York this offseason, as the Mets might try to use him as bait to try and upgrade at other key positions, such as the outfield and the bullpen.
The Mets are in a difficult position. The club wants to rebuild albeit while trying to maintain a competitiveness on the field. Team finances have also put the team into a quandary, so trading Davis is not out of the question if a deal comes together that addresses what the club is looking for.
If that is the case, the Mets would be making a huge mistake, as Davis is not the problem but part of the solution as the team moves forward with rebuilding.
Ike Davis has a lot of offer the Mets. That is why he is a key to the future and without him, New York's rebuilding efforts would most likely stall.
