Davis close to tying Ripken’s strikeout record?

48 posts in this topic

His strike out rate had been down a bit from 2017.

I guess he's already at midseason form!

I think I jinxed him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nah.  He just sucks.

Davis' K rate this year, so far is 1/4.33 PA.  Last year it was 1/2.65 PA.

That is a marked improvement.  He is on pace for only 133 Ks this season.

And, he bunted last night.  Poorly.  But he still tried.

He is back on pace for 198.  That was quick.

Davis is unwatchable.

That's definitely worth $21 million annually until eternity.

Watching Chrissy's strike out was funny. It was a great pitch that hit the mitt, without having to be framed. When the umpire called strike 3, Chrissy stood there with the expression that said he felt like the umpire made a bad call. Except it wasn't a bad call. And more than that, high profile batters who can barely make contact, don't get close calls.

He is a 100% guess hitter now.  He can't pick up the ball at all.

If that's true, he's one of the worst "guess hitters" I've ever seen.

He'll pass Cal by the end of the month. There are 17 more games in June, and he's good for one K (minimum) per game.

I wonder if they’ll unfurl banners on the Warehouse to commemorate this historic occasion.

Will they stop the game and do a ceremony? One moment is time.....

Hang some numbers on the warehouse.

It is just absolutely unfathomable that Ripken was here 20 years (so, naturally he would lead the organization in strikeouts) while Chris Davis has played here just SIX (see also: 6) seasons & he is on the verge of shattering that mark!

I'm even more curious to find out what is the lowest batting average for a hitter that qualifies for an entire year statistically.  I know it's below .200 but wonder what the record is.

Rob Deer, 1991, .179
Dan Uggla, 2013, .179

I wouldn't put it past Buck to bench his buddy just enough to keep him from getting 502 plate appearances, and save him from the ignominy.

Thank you for the info....wow, that's laughably bad for 502 plate appearances but Davis would have to go on a tear to get back to the .180 mark.  Well, for him that is.
