"It's pretty quiet...We know all the names. It's a small group. Nothing changes from one day to the next. Ike Davis is the one player people talk about. Other than that, there's not much available."You'll recall the Mets have requested Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg in exchange for Davis. The Brewers said no, but the Mets haven't backed down. Apparently neither have the Brewers because talks haven't progressed. Melvin even went as far as saying the team may have to "mix and match" its only players to fill the void at first base if a deal doesn't materialize.
This will be the second game of chicken Sandy Alderson has engaged in this winter. The previous one saw the Mets cave and offer a fourth year to Curtis Granderson. This outcome remains to be seen, but it looks clear that the Brewers are in on Davis. We'll just have to see who blinks first.
