Not this year he doesn't.



Comerica Park- 1.140

OPACY- .987

I'm not sure I'm willing to let ~45 games of data convince me that 3 years of data is wrong.


Oh. I thought you were one of those "Trout" guys.

I was one of those Trout guys. Even so, Cabrera was still the better hitter.

Everyone is laughing and making jokes, but what if the soreness from the torn callus makes Davis hold his bat just a little differently, which alters his swing enough that the contact point on the sweet spot of the bat is maybe 1/2" higher or lower than before. That would mean HR's and line drives would turn into pop-ups and ground balls. Some very subtle differences can cause big changes in any sport.

I'm not freaking out about it, but I'm not as dismissive as everyone else either.

didnt he say, he gets them every year?

He did, but what he didn't say is what his performance was when he got them. I would expect he'd downplay it, but I'm inherently cynical when athletes talk. lol

I'm sure he'll be fine, but let's see what he does out of the break.

The callus tore on his right hand in the 2nd round of the HR Derby. In the 1st round he knocked 8 HR's; in the 2nd round he got 4 HR's. He said he uses a bandage and padded batting gloves to help deal with them. Time will tell. 2 days off may help.
