Ike Davis Is On His Way Out, Eventually

Wednesday was an eventful day when it comes to the first base market.  A field of players that once featured upwards of four available players saw the likes of Corey Hart and Logan Morrison land in Seattle.  As a result, the market for Ike Davis was almost certainly bolstered.

Davis however remains a fallback plan for his two largest suitors, the Brewers and the Rays.  ESPN NY's Adam Rubin explained the situation tonight with the following:

Say what you want about the Mets not getting things done at a speed that suits your liking, but this is the perfect example of letting the market play out.  At some point, either the Tampa Bay Rays or the Milwaukee Brewers are going to need Ike Davis.  At that time, first the first time all winter Sandy Alderson will have the leverage to maximize Davis' value.

The Mets are rumored to want a pitching prospect in exchange for Davis.  Alderson yesterday as saying he would not give a shortstop away, would like an impact prospect in addition to dumping more than $3 million in salary next season.  That money could bode very important for the Mets as they round out their 2014 roster.  Ike Davis will be traded.  It will happen...eventually.
