Why the Mets Need to Keep the David Wright/Ike Davis Duo in New York

Over the past few years, the New York Mets have done a poor job of cementing a solid core group of players. The tandem of David Wright and Ike Davis could be a very good starting point for the Mets as the team attempts to rebuild while staying relevant in a city that hates to rebuild.

A core is vital to a team's success. The Yankees rode their "Core Four" (Jeter, Rivera, Pettitte and Posada) to multiple World Series titles. While the Mets' may not be able to realistically set their sights that high yet, they will need both Davis and Wright if they are to experience any level of success in the coming years.

David Wright has one year remaining on his contract and Ike Davis is up for arbitration this offseason. It is very important that the Mets work towards locking both players up to long-term deals or they will end up taking a step backwards.
