>Happy with my recent Ike Davis article, I decided to Google “Ike Davis analysis.” Low and behold, what do I find but an analysis…on MY analysis!
A writer calling himself Mr. Ed Haas (if that’s his real name) decided to say the following in response to my article:
Ike Davis arrived to the majors last year with mixed results. Many analysts didn’t see lefty as having the tools to be a regular at the major league level. Davis had hit well at every minor league level and displayed above average power throughout his career. Davis responded with a solid 19 home run rookie campaign which was largely overlooked due to Buster Posey and Jason Heyward being major talents breaking into the league at the same time.
The Fantasy Baseball King looks at Davis’ in the most complete player analysis I’ve seen in 2011 over at Pro Fantasy Baseball. I’d be a little creeped out if I was Ike. The King recognizes Davis’ hot start and feels the current production is not only sustainable, but the potential is for great production than we’ve seen.
The end 2011 projection from the King – .285 30 105.
I personally see Davis more in the 18 – 22 home run range, but the .285 average is right on par with Davis’ career. Those 105 RBIs might be hard to come by. Perhaps without playing half his games at Citifield we might see more from Davis. Anything outside of 20 – 85 is a little too optimistic. Even at that production, Davis is a steal in most mixed leagues and available in 33% of Yahoo leagues. He’s worth a spot on any roster.
