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. Still, the Mets aren't giving up. Puma reports they still are talking to the Orioles, as well as the Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates, about a deal for Davis.
