Who Will Be Mets First Baseman?
During the postgame press conference yesterday, Mets manager Terry Collins stated that the first baseman who started against the Reds today would be the man to get the most ample opportunity — at least 60 at-bats — to win the job.
Who will it be?
Considering that Collins promised that Ike Davis would get “90 to 100 at-bats” during spring training (which never happened due to injury), I’d have to think that Davis is “the guy.”
However, the rumor — according to Andy Martino, Jon Heyman, and others with “sources close to the situation” — has it that Lucas Duda will be “the guy.”
Then again, maybe there will be a press conference announcing the signing of Kendrys Morales. If that happens, remember — you heard it here first. (If it doesn’t happen, forget you read this.)
We’ll know for sure by this afternoon when the lineup is published. In the meantime, what do YOU think? Will Davis be the guy? Should he be? Why or why not? Post in the comments.
