NH apparently does. Ike Davis and Montero on the radar according to "The Fan".

Kvetch.

Extremely dependent on what kind of return NYM is looking for. Regardless of how much it might be corrected by inserting him into a platoon role (a lot of last year's statline comes from the heinous .406 OPS against LHP, and those will be Gaby's ABs while Ike has a career.827 OPS against RHP), you can't give much for a guy who barely hit over the mendoza line the last two years.

In the event that it wouldn't take much, though, I see nothing but upside. While not ideal, on paper it would be a fairly solid platoon pairing with Gaby and there are a few peripherals that might suggest something, like that he hit significantly better in the second half last year and he's still young enough that it wouldn't be a total surprise to see the power come back, only two years removed.

By the way, I think you mean Mitch Moreland is the other one linked to the Pirates, not Montero. Moreland and Davis were mentioned in a Tweet by Heyman earlier today which I'm sure is what the radio was referencing.

Yes I think Davis would be a good fit. Really I think just about anybody who can hit .800 against righties would be a good fit.
