Just days after Terry Collins announced that Lucas Duda would be the Mets first basemen, the team has seemingly ditched that idea. Collins has started Ike Davis a few times since making that announcement and also stated that Davis will start on Thursday in the series finale vs. the Atlanta Braves.

I guess the Mets don’t know yet but the season has started already. Auditions should be over the team should have picked a first basemen years ago (or at least a few weeks ago) but this audition could go on for the foreseeable future.

Honestly the Mets have no idea what they have out of their first basemen but it is in their best interest to pick one for the job and let him play their everyday for the next five or six weeks. That doesn’t appear to be the plan however.

Neither player can get into any kind of rhythm when they are in a three man platoon.

Duda is hitting .182 with two homers and four RBIs through 22 at-bats this season. Meanwhile, Davis is hitting .400 with one homer and four RBIs in only 10 at-bats. Josh Satin should play a lot this weekend when the Mets take on the Angels who will throw out two pretty good left-handed starters.

Who should be the Mets first basemen?
