Ike Davis told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York on Friday that he was slowed and fatigued throughout last season and it carried over into the regular season. Ike told Rubin that his ankle also wasn’t fully healthy in spring training last year. Davis isn’t sure if the Valley fever had anything to do with it but knows something was wrong. “I had to limit a lot of things last year as far as workload,” Davis said. “I didn’t have a beer all of spring training last year. I went home and laid on the couch. And I usually fish for another six hours every day I didn’t say anything to anybody, besides maybe the trainers.”imagesCAU5LIB3

The biggest question of the first half last year was why Ike Davis was struggling so much. It could have been his ankle, it could have been the valley fever which according to Ike is all gone now or it could have been the rust from having a year off.

I think Ike Davis is primed for a great year now that he is healthy. Ike hit 27 of his 32 homeruns after June 11th. I think it shows that he was more comfortable and shook off the rust. Hopefully the Valley fever is fully behind him and Ike could be primed to make his first all-star appearance. Davis will be counted on heavily as the clean-up hitter in the Mets lineup this season and with the fences having come in last year Ike has a shot at a 40 homer season.
