LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The educated lobby speculation at the winter meetings is that the Milwaukee Brewers will have a new first baseman very shortly. And what happens there impacts the Mets.
If that materializes, that would further limit the potential landing spots for Ike Davis.
The Pittsburgh Pirates need a lefty-hitting first baseman, but they have been prioritizing on-base percentage. And the Houston Astros also are looking for a first baseman, although there is no indication right now that anything is serious between the Mets and Houston.
