The Power Goes Out on Khris Davis
Probably the biggest surprise this season is Khris Davis didn’t finish with a .247 batting average.
He had one stretch – from June 19 to August 20, spanning 44 games – Davis hit .185 and posted a .491 OPS with only one home run, 13 RBIs and 46 strikeouts.
He carried the A’s the past three years, posting 40 bombs and 100 RBIs in each of the seasons. His power and knack for big hits is the difference between this team having 97 wins or 100 wins and may end up being the difference between them getting knocked out in the WCG or going to the ALCS or even the World Series.
