Chris Davis went 0 for 54. It was the longest hitless streak in MLB history. The Baltimore Orioles slugger reached absolute rock bottom in an unforgiving sport, and the Chris Davis streak was an outcome. 0-54. It boggles the mind.
But there is a lesson to learned here. First and foremost, it deals with Statcast and expected batting average. Even though Chris Davis did in fact go 0 for 54, everything isn't quite as it seems. Statcast reveals just how unlucky he was. We'll also talk about the Shift, and how it relates to Davis's struggles. What happened to Chris Davis? You may ask. I'll do my best to answer.
In this episode of Baseball Bits, a Foolish Baseball production, I'll also talk about the good aspects of this unique streak. Even though he went through the worst slump in MLB history, he had the security of the Chris Davis contract. The Orioles themselves weren't competitive. And Davis handled the whole thing with class and poise. It really is a one in a million life lesson, and I intend to showcase that.
