I projected him at .255, 25 HR, 65 R, 75 RBI, 1 SB. He's 27 years old so theoretically entering his prime, and his last 10 games overall certainly attest to that. Having said that, there's still some serious cause for concern. Knowing his jekyll and hyde history, I recommend erring on the side of caution. If you have the opportunity to sell high, go for it.


As a Davis owner, I'd be very happy if he just repeated last year's numbers while improving his underlying numbers so there's more reason to believe he can be a legitimate top 75 player every year with the potential for one off top 25 year spike due to his power.


I had a hard time believing he can repeat .265-270 with a 30% K rate. Who knows if he can keep up the 25% HR/FB rate. He's at 60% right now. ;-)


It's week 1, who doesn't have a 60% fb rate, a .500 BABIP, etc.?

Grand salami! Davis is now on pace for 648 rbis.

The wink indicates sarcasm.

And he just homered again, getting silly now.

If he can hit .260 with 35/100 I will be a happy owner.

Seem like reasonable projections when you add in what has already happened lifting his stats up a little bit.

I was able to grab him late in both my drafts, didn't expect this kind of start from him. But now that I ahve it, do I sell high on him? And what do I seek in return?

OF is full of old dudes and upside guys so he is going to be a hard guy to trade properly. I find it hard to believe anyone is going to trade an established 30 HR, 100 RBI guy for Davis that isn't on the wrong side of 30. I would shop him around but I'd probably be expecting to just keep him.
