I think Davis is a great young player with a lot of Dunn-like upside, but he will not be at 3B and will likely not get 1B either with the aforementioned possible situation you brought up with Salty at first. A lot of things would have to occur in his favor to see him in '08.
If he shows he can hit a full-year at Double-A or even Triple-A then who knows, but I think there are enough bodies in front him that deserve a look at 1B/DH like a Jason Botts that Davis could spend most of 2008 in the minors, he could get a look in Sept potentially.
The big debate was started in a dynasty league when a GM basically traded Chris Davis for Rajai Davis. The reason why he dealt Chris Davis is because he has Chad Tracy, Mark Reyonds, Travis Hanson, Travis Metcalf and Johnny Whittleman as options at 3B. He wanted to add a OF bat that could potentially start and R.Davis stole 22 bases last year. One of the GMs threw a fit and claimed it was highway robbery and that C.Davis was going to be this big stud and the trade was ridiclous.
