The Mets had two starting first basemen and only one job, and Davis was to become the casualty. It was with that as a backdrop that Davis stood outside the Mets' Minor League complex early Friday morning, deflecting questions about his emotions and reaffirming his commitment to the team. One National League scout, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described Davis’s swing as very complicated, with a lot of moving parts. But I never once was off the team, so it's kind of like [there was an] article every day, but there was no trade. It's not a big deal. I wanted to be back. I'm back. So I'm happy about it."
