Chris Davis – #3

We ranked Chris Davis as the #2 player last month on the strength of the second half of July. His high ranking this month is based upon his first half of August numbers. Totaling his 23 games from July 22 to August 15, Davis hit 15 home runs and drove home 35, while batting .341. The O’s were 13-10 in that stretch. Annualize those numbers and you have a guy with 106 homers and 247 home runs! That is ridiculous, and so was this streak.

But Davis cooled off for the second half of August, so his total monthly numbers were a more modest .257 with 10 home runs and 22 RBIs. Even that would extend to annual numbers of 56 homers and 123 RBIs.  In that the Orioles were 11-18 over this stretch of games, it demonstrates how poorly so much of the rest of the team performed.

Next: #2
