Astros interested in Ike Davis, he shrieked hysterically

ESPN New York's Adam Rubin says that the Astros, Brewers, Orioles, Rays and Rockies are all interested in Mets 1B Ike Davis.

This is the same Ike Davis who hit .205/.326/.334 in 103 games in 2013, with 101 strikeouts in 377 plate appearances. Yes, the same Ike Davis who hit 32 homers in 2012 (hitting .227/.308/.462). But just for comparison's sake:

Ike Davis, 2013: .205/.326/.334, 89 OPS+
Brett Wallace, 2013: .221/.284/.431, 96 OPS+ (285 PAs)

Now, Davis' 2013 numbers were dragged down by his awful first-half performance. Regard:

Davis' 1st Half, 2013: .165/.255/.250, 73K in 239 PAs
Davis' 2nd Half, 2013: .286/.449/.505, 28K in 138 PAs.

We'll see where this goes...

Wallace's 2013 numbers also dragged down by his awful first half...

Hmmm...well, color me embarrassed. According to Fangraphs, Wallace's first half and second half are nearly identical. That is when the All-Star Game is considered the half way point. I have always considered the end of June the halfway point.

When June ended the Astros were 30-52 and Wallace was "hitting" .114/.152/.227.

Ike Davis seems to be to be the classic rebound situation. In fact looking at his second half might be a good indication of that. On top of that he will most likely come cheap due to the down year. I would be fine playing Ike Davis over Brett Wallace any day of the year. The question remains what does all of this mean for Singleton.

Ike would have to come cheap and a short term contract; no more than 2 years. If it was my money, I would probably pass on him and see if Singleton can make a splash in the bigs.

Ike is under team control for a few years so unless the acquiring team wants to sign him for multiple years, then he'll automatically be on a renewable one year deal

Ike deal is something ed wade would do.

Already did this last year with Chris Carter.....gave him the "regular playing time" he needed and we got some HRs, a million SOs and average (1B) to poor (LF) defense.....let's move past the eternal reclamation projects like Davis, Wallace & Carter.....

I did my best Steve Kerr impression from when McGrady hit the 3 to beat the Spurs
