Ike Davis has not joined David Wright on the recruiting trail for Michael Bourn.
“I’ll leave that to David,” the Mets’ first baseman said last night at the Thurman Munson Awards. “[Bourn] would be like, ‘Ike who? I don’t want to buy anything.’ ”
But if the Mets are leaving the personal sales pitch to Wright, as The Post reported yesterday, then Davis will gladly hit the air waves to proclaim how much he’d enjoy having Bourn, the speedy outfielder who is still a free agent, as a teammate.
“As a guy that likes to drive in runners, I would love Michael Bourn to be on the bases when I’m hitting, just because of how he changes the game,” Davis said. “We’re going to see more fastballs if he was on the team. It would be great. He’s also an amazingly good defender out in center field.
“So that’s a whole different scenario. You always could wish, but you don’t know if it’s going to happen.”
