How much longer can you stick with him. Jesus he's a shell of his former self!

I'd rather see Flaherty hit at this point. Davis can't even hit a grooved fastball anymore.

He looks awful. My friend pointed out.... doesn't he look kind of "skinny" compared to the last year Davis?

I remember a few posters laughing at me when I compared Davis to Mark Reynolds. Maybe they were laughing because They know that Mark Reynolds is way better.

I noticed that in spring training.  You hate to just say someone is using PED's without proof but 53 homeruns?  Maybe he got a little spooked in the 2nd half last year after seeing all those players being suspended.  That said, he can't even make contact right now.  You might as well have a pitcher hitting.

Flukey seasons have happened throughout baseball history. Thanks to the Steroid era, people now automatically assume PED use when an okay player has an exceptional year.

Chris Davis still has slightly better numbers.  Those numbers were much better the last time this was discussed.  :(

I was going to say "Norm Cash, 1961", but I think the entirety of the American League was flukey in 1961.  Cash hit .361, 41HR, 132RBI, and finished 4th in the MVP voting.

 

Then he hit .243 in '62.  1961 was the only season he ever hit over .286

Christ, Davis has a case of the "yips".


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

Davey Johnson's 1973 season

After never hitting more than 18 homers in a season he hit 43 in 73' then never hit more than 15 homers in any season afterwards

Even if he was cheating last year and now isn't that wouldn't explain why he suddenly can't hit at all.

good point. his power would be down, but a lack of roids wouldn't make him suddenly swing at balls that are a foot off the plate.

His problem is multiple.  He's not seeing the ball well.  His mechanics are off.  He's frustrated and pressing, and impatient.

that's a lot to overcome.

Anyone that thinks that he's "smaller", or used 'roids last year has no idea what they are talking about. He has the same power, he just has horrible timing. He's on pace to hit over 20 homers again, and all it would take is a hot streak to get him back on the 30 homer pace. I have a feeling that we will see that very soon, within the next month.

I agree.

I think the league's pitchers have figured Davis out and he's struggling to adjust to the way he's being pitched to now
