In late April, I explored Chris Davis’ ridiculous start to the season and what might have caused it. Nearly three months later, my hypothesis has been all but scientifically proven.
Chris Davis has yet to blink once this entire season.
He is too focused on breaking every possible non-Barry Bonds record ever set. Davis is currently second only to Miguel Cabrera in FanGraphs WAR at 4.8. He’s slugging .731. THAT IS RIDICULOUS. He has a commanding lead in the home run department at 32 on the year. To be nice, Chris Davis has yet to steal a base this year. He feels that would be unfair. Anyway, let’s just get to the overwhelming evidence.
Here is Chris Davis not blinking moments before getting slapped by a friendly teammate:

Here is shirtless Chris Davis not blinking because shirtless Chris Davis is shirtless:
Keep it up, Chris. We love you.
