I spotted Ike Davis eating something out of a Chick-Fil-A wrapper in a corner of the visiting clubhouse at Space Coast Stadium yesterday. Dedicated sandwich investigator that I am, I asked him about it this morning.
Davis said he likes the traditional fried chicken sandwich on a whole wheat bun with hot sauce and no pickles.
They didn’t have many Chick-Fil-A restaurants in Arizona while Davis was growing up, but he developed a taste for the Georgia-based fast food chain while playing in the Minors.
“They’re right outside pretty much every hotel you stay at in the Florida State League,” he said.
Davis also enjoys Chick-Fil-A’s chicken salad sandwich. He is aware that there is a single Chick-Fil-A in New York City — inside an NYU food court — but he has not been there.
This concludes today’s sandwich-based Mets reporting.
