Chris Davis, Jesus' Younger Brother

Postby sean1981 » Sun Jan 11, 2009 7:35 pm

Interesting take here from CBS' Al Melchior:

For Chris Davis, the news is mixed. On the plus side, his minor league whiff rate hovered around the 25 percent mark, and at age 23 next season, he could take a big step forward. Unforttunately, he'll be taking that step from the 30 percent whiff rate he established with the Rangers last season. Also, while his 17.4 AB/HR was impressive, it's substanially higher than the rates of other successful, high-whiff rate sluggers like Dunn, Howard and Ryan Ludwick. Davis should be good enough to be a mixed league player next year, but don't make the mistake of taking him too early based on a prorating of last season's stats. Ryan Zimmerman and Jorge Cantu, and not Evan Longoria and Aramis Ramirez, are his most likely comparables. ... y/11211721

Davis's line drive and fly ball rate makes him a more intriguing than Cantu and his power is more legit than Zimmerman. Davis could fall into a bad funk with the Ks, but they've never shown themselves to be much of a problem in the minors, where he also K'd a lot.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
