07:42 AM ET 12.28 | The New York Mets continue to shop first baseman Ike Davis as they try to solve the problem of having Davis and Lucas Duda, two similar players, available at first base. The team recently tried to swing a deal with the Baltimore Orioles to get left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez, 20, in exchange for Davis, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. But the Birds balked.

Orioles are overplaying their hand too.

What possible reason would the Orioles have for acquiring Ike Davis? They have the best hitting first baseman in baseball who plays a gold glove first base. The Orioles balked? They should have laughed.

As a Mets fan living in Baltimore... I thought the exact same thing. Maybe thinking of moving Davis, current, to the DH... or alternating them in that role.

Pretty good idea on second thought.

It just doesn't make sense.
