Chris Davis's Long National Nightmare Has Finally Ended
Here's a piece of MLB news that may startle you.
In fact, it might be better to sit down first.
Yesterday, Chris Davis had two doubles and a single in five at-bats, driving in four runs.
For those not familiar with the Guantanamo Bay-style torture of dude's season, this otherwise normal stat line is deeply significant.
We now gleefully present you with a positive Chris Davis highlight package, which was beginning to seem like an impossibility:
Right the hell on, dude.
It's remarkable to consider that a player who almost won an MVP in 2013 and is right in the middle of a $161million contract has actually become an underdog, but it's difficult not to root for him.
Anyone with a shred of compassion had to feel for Davis, who maintained a strange nobility throughout the nightmarish run of futility.
Of course, this three-hit day only raised his season average to .079, so there's still some work to do.
