NL East Notes: Braves, Mets, Davis

Tonight's look at the National League East..

  • The Braves aren't finished making moves yet, team president John Schuerholz tells Jim Bowden of SiriusXM (via Twitter).  "I like our team but [General Manager Frank Wren] is not done yet," Schuerholz said.
  • It would be a mistake for the Mets to sell low on Ike Davis, opines Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.  Instead of trading Davis now, it would be best to hang on to him and see if he might be able to get back to his old form and belt 30 homers again.  So far, the Mets have been adamant that they will not simply give him away and it sounds like their price tag has been high in talks with the Orioles, Brewers, and others.
  • Ken Davidoff of the New York Post doesn't agree, arguing that the Mets have to move Davis now.  There's a chance he could turn things around, but one talent evaluator isn't too optimistic about that.  “It’s like running a Mercedes dealership and saying, ‘We’re going to charge you $55,000 for this car, but it’s used and banged up, and you have to figure out how to fix it. Not us, you,'" the agent said.
