It’s been reported by Adam Rubin that Ike Davis would rather just remain with the Mets and not be traded.

Davis spoke with MLB.com:

“I just want a chance to play,” Davis told MLB.com. “Honestly, I’ve loved my time with the Mets. I’m still a Met right now and I don’t want to get traded. But that part of the game is not up to us. You want to stay, but you don’t have any say in it.

That does speak volumes for Davis, because he just wants to prove to the fans, his teammates, the organization, and I am sure himself that his dramatic 2013 slump, was just that, a slump.  He has proven in the past that he can have a big season, like he did in 2012 when he hit 32 HR with 90 RBI.  And if he hits that way again, he can be that big bat at first base the Mets so desperately need.

But the main question is, can and will the old Ike Davis stand up?  There is no real way at this point to predict what he will or will not do.  Will it be too much for the Mets to hold on to him until spring training? Can they afford to wait and see if he will bring anything to the table?  Can he make a dramatic comeback?

No telling what will happen, or how this drama will unfold, but we all have a front row seat and just hope the Mets make the best decision for all.
