The Mets are disappointed with Davis’ unwillingness to make changes based on coaching advice.
Anybody know what changes they're trying to get him to make?
Why would any team give up anything good for Duda if that's the case?
Yunel Escobar for Davis.
Well, Davis is the one hitting .223 right now. At least if you deal Duda you're kinda sorta selling high on him.
Those are Ike's 2012 and career splits vs RHB/LHB. I have a feeling Earl Weaver would know what to do with him.
Is Ike Davis really that good that it's somehow shocking that the Mets would deal him? He looks from afar like a potentially good player who has not quite put it all together yet but not someone I would expect to be on any sort of untouchable list.

Shouldn't that be Hairston?
There's a bizarre feeling in New York that he's a star. I guess that happens when your only real contributors on offense are Wright and Murphy. Davis has simply not helped as a 1B. He's been replacement level this year, and while I think he's better than that because he does have a 115 career OPS+, "mediocre" is the word I'd use.
The Mets have too many guys like that. Murphy, Thole, Tejada, Duda. Sure you need to have some of them on your team (if they are cheap)and they won't lose you the game but they don't have the players to win the games.
I'm with Russlan. I give Davis a bit of a pass because of the Valley Fever - I still think he can be a .900 OPS players for a few years.
It's going to be an interesting offseason. The Mets are at a crossroads. With some luck regarding their young pitching and a few good moves, they could compete soon. If those arms don't work out, this team is in trouble.
His first half was crap, as referenced; but watching him all year, more in the second half, it's not entirely fanboyism to think that he's better than mediocre.
I ignore in-season splits except to wonder whether he was injured in some way. But this "Oh, he had a bad first half, so let's ignore it because he then figured it out in the second half" is flawed. If he were a young player just called up, fine, but he's been in the league for a few years now.

How many games are the Mets going to win with Hairston, ? and Duda as the outfield? Man, they really need a CF. Does anyone else think Shane Victorino is worth signing, with Cap'n Kirk getting some games against righties?
Selling high on Duda? He's 26 years old and was sent down to the minors for part of the year because of how bad he was playing. If they traded him prior to this year, when he was coming off a 138 OPS+, then you would have been selling high.
Except for Tony Tarasco and Mark Corey.
By the way, according to the ESPN Home Run Tracker, Lucas Duda has never hit a homerun to leftfield.
Adrian Gonzalez was a great example for me. I guess he had disappointed in the minors, but I still can't believe the Rangers traded him for Adam Eaton.
I don't get the rush to deal Duda either. He's not very good, but he's essentially a free OF, and the Mets need those right now.
Why would he be anything less than a trainwreck in LF?
maybe it's personal
sometimes a team gets rid of a player who is good enough, even when they don't have someone better because for whatever reason they don't like the guy - see astros and luke scott
