Ike Davis = Gold Glove?



If you put faith into these new sexypants defensive metrics, Ike Davis has been the best defensive 1B in the National League this season (topped only by Oakland's Daric Barton):

I know the dangers of looking at single-season defensive metrics, but hey... it's something!  Ike has shown pretty good power and okayish contact skills as a rookie.  All he needs is some work on his eye (read: K/BB rate) and the Mets could have a nice, inexpensive, well-rounded piece moving forward.  Davis and Thole have been the bright spots for this organization and certainly the best reasons to watch the Mets play out the string.
