If his bat comes around that's just the icing on the cake, but as long as he plays well defensively, the rest of the lineup can carry the offensive load. Realistically they have only 3 poor hitters in Davis, Borbon, and Molina. I expect David Murphy to steal more and more playing time from Borbon as time goes on, and especially in the playoffs so they can use Borbon as a pinch runner. When that happens, their lineup gets even better.
Chris Davis is known for his defense??
They had to move him from 3B because he was so horrible defensively. Even when he was destroying the ball his bat was barely good enough to make up for his defensive ineptitude. He's not as bad at 1B but he's still below average.
