What to do with Mr. Davis?

Postby skjelstrom » Sun Jun 27, 2010 8:54 pm

With Coco Crisp now back and as hot as ever what happens to Rajai Davis? I need the steals but if he isn't playing full-time its not really worth it. His average isn't great and now with no playing opportunities his steals won't be either. And even when his is playing he is batting ninth because Crisp now has a hold on the leadoff spot. Is there any reason for a team to keep him unless they are really deep?

I'm pretty certain that the A's are trying to audition Crisp. It would be a tough sell, but they need to do it.

Is he still valuable? or has Crisp officially taken his spot and is the better option?

I am holding.

He was to good at the end of 2009, I don't expect the same numbers but if they do move an outfielder I am confident that he is a great second half gamble.

I refused to add him in a trade yesterday, which is huge considering I play in a league that has no bench, I say this to show how much I think of Rajai.

I don't understand though, why would they get C Jackson just to move a different outfielder.

Because Beane is a genius.

Not good for a man trying to prove he belongs in the lineup....
