Chris Davis AL Record 37 Homers Before The All-Star Break

Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis joins only Jimmie Foxx and Babe Ruth to hit at least 30 homers, drive in 90 runs, and hit .315 before the All-Star break. It's been a breakout season for Crush and the scary thing is despite the great numbers he still is not the leading MVP candidate. That would be reigning Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. Miggy's stats are even better than last season. The only way Davis wins the MVP is if he keeps up his torrid pace and breaks Roger Maris record. It can be done but I think he will end up in the mid 50s in homer total. A great season no doubt. The more important thing is getting the Orioles back to the playoffs. Davis is doing his part but they need guys like Matt Wieters and Brian Roberts to step up their offensive games while the starting rotation needs to go at least 6 innings deep to give their bullpen some much needed rest.
