Lucas Duda, Ike Davis

Alderson: Davis and Duda both on Opening Day roster

Ike Davis and Lucas Duda will both be on the Opening Day roster, GM Sandy Alderson said on Tuesday. He didn’t make a call on which player would start, though.

Last week, Alderson cautioned against making a rash decision and possibly trading one of the first baseman.

“You have to be a little more cautious and maybe not do something that has ‘forever,’ implications,” Alderson said at the time (Ackert, March 20).

Davis and Duda have only played in a handful of games this spring due to a myriad of leg injuries. Terry Collins said last week whichever player is able to play will get the starts.

“Right now, it’s probably who’s going to be the healthiest,” Collins said last week (Diamond, March 20).

I've never seen so many chances given to a player!! Even if Ike is batting under .200 at the halfway point they will still let him play. So messed up!

I cant stand to watch Duda play so I am hoping it is Ike.

Ike should start and Duda should be traded to the American League where he can be a DH.

Whichever one is not slumping or hurt...which seems to be all the time.That's why you need three to play the position on Alderson's Mets.

Ike 0-3 today Tejada 0-2, Duda 0-2 yesterday, but lets just"stick with our guys" .  I cant believe that this team is going to start the season carrying all three of these turds! This team has such a hard time parting with their useless garbage, no team who wants to win keeps players like these three! Its a shame and a joke to insult us fans with this caliber of player! i am tired of hearing from some of the other people who post on here how they "need another chance" they have had their chance and they blew it!  So Wilpons, Alderson respect us fans and get rid of these three and show some commitment to winning! Some of us with some pride and wanting to win dont want to see any of them anymore of them, make some trades and get them the H out of here!

Ike gets another chance. Duda can't field or hit in the clutch
