Assuming Davis keeps up his current pace of a homer roughly every 15 at-bats, he should be able to tack on four more dingers by season’s end. If he can throw one more homer in there, though, he’ll finish the season with the most home runs in a single season since Ryan Howard hit 58 in 2006. In the American League, no one has topped 54 homers in a season since Alex Rodriguez hit 57 for the Rangers in 2002. Jose Bautista and David Ortiz both finished with 54 homers in 2010 and 2006, respectively.
I hope he stays stuck at 50. .261/.355/.537 in the second half so far.
Remember the halcyon days of the All-Star break, when we all thought that Chris Davis was going to crush 70 home runs in one of the most improbable seasons ever?
Who's to say he can't hit 11 in 15 games? And if Davis starts hitting like that, there a pretty good chance he'll have a 16th regular season game.
I think it's weird that Game 163 counts as a regular-season game. It could just as easily be defined as postseason.
Taylor: Chris Davis hits the 50-homer plateau
Joe Sheehan justified his support for Prince Fielder as the starting All-Star 1B by predicting that Prince would end the season with more oWAR than Davis.
So far, we're at Prince 2.6, Davis 7.0.
I think there's an important distinction that makes sense to call it a regular season game. Game 163 (or Games 156-158) was always used to undo ties.* You didn't play it unless teams finished the scheduled portion of the regular season with the same record. Thus, you play the game and the teams are no longer tied when the day is done.
that's how Maury Wills played 165 games in 1962. Now THAT'S a record that will never be broken
