Mets | Ike Davis expected to compete at 1B

New York Mets 1B Ike Davis is expected to enter spring training competing for the starting first base job with OF Lucas Duda after the team didn't find any takers on the trade market this winter. The loser of the competition will sit on the bench or move to the minors. "We're not going to move Ike just to move Ike -- or any other player for that matter," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "This is a trade market, not a yard sale, and right now we're perfectly happy to go into spring training with Davis and Duda both on the team. Frankly, we're not that actively engaged in trade discussions involving Ike at this point. I think that underscores our willingness to go into camp with both."
