Thanks so much for that one, bigort. Don't suppose you'd elaborate on that so that we might be able to know what you're talking about?

Often enough, that's true.

I'd say most of the time, like 75% to be exact.

He was drafted aggressively in general and most owners probably aren't totally comfortable with where they drafted him in the first place, add in a poor start and you probably can get him cheaper than where he was drafted in a lot of leagues.

Exactly, you couldnt be more right.


If he had some sort of track record in the majors this thread wouldnt even exist.


To be fair I do not have faith in Davis, the entire reason I have him in 0 teams is his stats scream out .250 hitter to me. So a slow start isn't a huge surprise to me. I think his power is for real but the poor contact rates will kill his AVG as his LD% won't translate to the majors. His park and lineup pumps up his value some but he was just going too early for my blood.

To be honest if anyone is concerned about Chris Davis at this point they really didn't research him. These concerns were obvious this offseason when you drafted. 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.
