Hey Athletics Nation!
Hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. If you didn't get enough Turkey on Thursday have a listen to segment three of my show today as Alex and I chat about Ike Davis.
Ike Davis is a member of the Oakland A's?
I couldn't believe it when I saw that trade. As a Mets fan I never understood the hype surrounding Davis. Sure, he was a former #1 pick but outside of his first two and a half seasons he took up space on the Mets roster.
The Mets became so frustrated with Davis they sent him to their Triple A affiliate in Vegas in hopes that he could get it together. He never did and was traded to the Pirates.
What did you think about the trade for Davis?
Unless he has a spectacular spring I don't think he is good enough to "go north" with the A's. The way the roster looks today he shouldn't.
Maybe I'm just a hater when it comes to Davis. I dunno but suffice to say I was less then thrilled with the trade.
Alex and I also chatted about Hanley Ramirez today and we also talked about how the Davis trade could be part of a larger trade Billy Beane is making. His segment begins around the 39 minute mark.
If you are interested my guests and I also talked NHL hockey and gave our weekly FanDuel Fantasy Football picks for this coming weekend. I'll leave the player below or you can download the program from my site.
