He K's alot and he is going to be a hot/cold type player. Right now he's cold. Next week or next month he'll make up for cold spell.
Ah, the voice of reason. [plug]I point what kab just said out in tomorrow's Hot/Cold column[/plug], in fact.
Taking Davis in the 5th/6th round came with measurable risk compared to the others at that particular round range. A history of a high K rate and the idea he hasn't drawn a big enough sample size to see how he would pan out. I'm sure most who are feeling antsy about Davis are those who know the risk, but don't appreciate it to the point where they don't see he's going to be a hit-or-miss hitter.
