Newsday: Ike Davis could be answer for Yankees

Commenter: “they should have drafted a lot more mat harvey’s”

The Yankees and Mets haven’t made a trade since 2004 (Mike Stanton to the Yankees, Felix Heredia to the Mets).

But this is one that would make sense for both teams: Ike Davis to the Yankees. Dellin Betances to the Mets.

That’s just an idea for starters. It doesn’t have to be Betances. But he’s the hard-throwing young bullpen arm the Mets desperately need. The Yankees need a first baseman after the increasingly brittle Mark Teixeira hit the disabled list again Saturday with a hamstring injury…

This whole Davis/[Lucas] Duda thing has not been the Mets’ finest hour. It’s been clear for some time that the front office favors Duda, but the team has never committed to him… If the organization truly believes Duda is the better option, it needs to maximize Davis’ value by trading him for something more necessary than a lefty bat off the bench…

Make the call, Sandy [Alderson]. If not to the Yankees, then to another team that will give you something you truly need. That’s more important than giving Davis a chance for occasional glory.
