08:09 AM ET 09.19 | In terms of roster moves, Ike Davis may only be the tip of the iceberg in New York, but he wanted to set something straight after a report suggested the Mets were concerned about his nightlife. "I have never missed games or not been ready to work because of anything to do with staying up too late," Davis told The News. ... That the Mets might trade Davis -- and Lucas Duda, David Wright, R.A. Dickey, and about 20 others -- has been a much discussed topic around the team in recent weeks. After a fourth consecutive losing season, GM Sandy Alderson and his staff will need to approach their entire roster with an open mind. "There is not a guy in that clubhouse who can't get traded," Terry Collins said. "Not a guy."

Mr. Eli your boy Dickey is just above a 500 career pitcher, but the good news he is a Tennessean.

So the Mets will never built a team if they keep trading the better ball players they have, so its going to a AAA Mets team for never...................

Transgendered bulls have feelings and we dare not offend anybody.

Exactly. Can't we learn from Escobar's mistake? Hell, there's a thread about it right over there >>>

There are two schools of thought regarding players staying out late.....
1. Nothing good happens after midnight.
2. Everything good happens after midnight.
Ike must be #2.

What about the owner and general manager?

Since he starting throwing the knuckleball...he's 30-18 with an ERA just under 3.00 on a bad baseball team....

If you leave the ballpark at midnight...get home by 12:30...do something for a couple of hours the next thing you know its 2:30 - 3:00 in the morning...if he has to be at the ballpark by let's say 3:00 in the afternoon that's 10-11 hours sleep .....sorry I don't buy that he's staying up or out too late....he hasn't been arrested or spotted at nightclubs....hell I haven't seen anything about Ike except in the sports section ....

QUOTE(#2):

The real question is: "Is there anyone the rest of the league wants?" (other than Wright of course)............Dickey's year reminds me a lot of John Denny's in 1983 - flash in the pan.

Duda and Davis might have some value--low OBP but some signs of power. David has more RBI's than Wright. Wright would bring a lot. Not too sure about the pitchers. Their best bet might be to hope to draft well the next couple of years. Trading Wright for a bunch of prospects might speed up the wait time for a better team.

Mets starting pitching is 9th in all MLB......bullpen is dead last....

You dont trade a 30 hr first basemen with an above average glove that is under club control for several years. On the free agent market he is worth $15 mil/season. Mets would be nuts to trade him.

I don't believe he is either. I mean, you have to unwind some before you can even think of hitting the rack. That's why I tried to make a joke with my other post.

The Manager thru in the Towel a week after the All-Star Break, that's why his team threw in the Towel! It's not about who you don't have it's about who you have and getting them to step up! After two full seasons ole Terry and Alderson, I say it's time to pull the plug because, they have no hope of them being better next year!
