With all the attention on the Wilpon’s ponzi schemes, the health of Beltran, Reyes and Bay, and our new GM/skipper combo, Ike Davis is flying WAAAY under the radar.
Normally a first baseman playing in NY who clubbed 19 HR his rookie season would be squarely in the spotlight during his sophomore spring training.
But you barely hear ANYTHING about Ike these days which is probably the best possible scenario for the youngster.
Terry Collins has certainly taken notice though claiming Davis is going to be a ‘premier first baseman,’ with ‘enormous power,’ who can be a ‘legit clean-up hitter.’
Wow those are big words from the skipper but BMF has envisioned that future for Ike all winter.
Meanwhile let’s not forget Davis is already one of the best defensive first basemen in the game.
I’m looking foward to watching a number of individual player seasons unfold but probably none as much as Ike Davis.
