Chris Davis!

Postby CyboNinja » Sun Apr 07, 2013 4:31 am

Basically I just want to know what the Cafe thinks about him. Is he the real deal? Is he a better trade target or trade bait? If you have him in a keeper, are you shopping him around or are you holding onto him and just glad you're lucky enough to have him?

Leave some links I'll be happy to help.

I always like him and was waiting for a bit of a breakout year. I wouldn't be surprised with 35+ HR 100 RBI and a .275 which is a slight improvement over last year. Obviously not going to keep pace, if you have him then now you might get as much as you ever will for him, if you don't just be careful not to over pay for a hot opening week.

Also the Orioles are improving their bats more and more so more opportunity for RBI and R. There pitching is holding them back as a team but that has no effect on the bats.

I'm not sure Davis has a .275 average in him.

He is the epitome of "streak". He is very hot right now, and there will be a time (most likely many different times) where he goes 0-12 with 7 K's during a 3-game series, and a few others like he had in the first series of the year. His trade value will not be much higher ever again. I think he is the perfect sell high candidate.

For example, I've seen Davis dealt for Cano straight up (I'm not happy about it, but oh well), and Davis dealt for McCutchen straight up (same sentiment).

If you can turn Davis into a 1st or 2nd round talent, you do it. If the other owners in your league are smart and aren't willing to give up much, then you should just hold him and ride the ups and downs.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
