Ike Davis?

Postby dsdonaghy » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:54 pm

First in my league, though still struggling for power (8th in RBI), especially out of my infield corner spots. Davis is a FA, and I'm debating whether I should be kicking the tires on him. Thoughts?

He's a decent play but I wouldn't expect a ton of power out of him, especially at Metco. He's a lefty and that power alley out in right center is going to sap his HR production.

I think he profiles as a 20-25 HR guy tops, but I wouldn't expect that much this season. I think he'll hit for a nice average, since he hits a good deal of liners (particularly to left center) and he displays better-than-average plate discipline.

I'm not one for forecasting, particularly with rookies since it's often a fools game, but I can see an OPS around .800 by season's end.
Would I pick him up? Depends on what other options there are. I tried to grab him in a 15 team league, but was outbid. Another owner took him in a 12 team keeper as soon as he appeared on Yahoo, but we're in NY and there are a lot of Mets fans in our league (myself included).

Hope that helps.
