Ike Davis - Should I activate his contract?

9 Team NL only Auction ($260) keeper league (max 10 Keepers) (C,C,1b,2b,ss,3b,mi,ci,4of,2util: 4sp,4rp 1p). Contracts increase $7 after 3 years, lose the player after the 2nd 3 year contract. Below is my team. Active league since 1987, I took over a team in 2009 (in 2nd year). Generally I want to compete but figured it would take me 2 years to really compete and change over the roster. Looking at my roster, I think I have some quality players. Contracts begin once I activate the player. Since Ike is up so early, should I activate him with the hope Pedro Alvarez comes up along with Storen to bolster a 2nd half run? Or should I wait and see with the opportunity to keep Davis and Pedro under contract for another year?

Do you have to decide today? Or can you give him a week or so? Cause that's what I'd do. Give him a couple of weeks unless he gets hot.

I do not have to decide today, no. Lineups go active every Monday, I did not start him this week. Its a tough call, if I activate him I want to maximize on his starts, but if he does terrible or gets sent back down, I lose a year. I will sit him for two weeks and follow the progress for at least 2 weeks. Thanks

What do you think, Ike seems like he can help; he a go?

Didn't you just say you were going to give him two weeks?

Yes. Agreed, not a Mets fan but nothing better than watching the prospects play.
