    Default Independent League pick-up!

    So I have a question?? Does anyone know anything about this independent league ball player Chris Davis??? Drafted by the Angels with a real nice stick moved around from position to position and then finally stuck at first base. Seems to have some ability, so why would the Angels give up on him so quickly??

    It's still surprising that he couldn't find a spot in any organization, but I think the reason may have been that he can't really play a position, doesn't hit for any power, and doesn't run particularly well. Usually anyone who shows they can hit can hang around a little while, though, so there might be more to it.

    Wait... dcm... you're referring to Chris Garcia, not Chris Davis, correct?

    yes Chris Garcia! I'm sorry, I had just read something on the Mets Ike Davis and inadvertently wrote down the wrong name.

    No problem. when you mentioned chris davis I got pretty **** excited. and then had to figure it couldn't be true, there'd be more chatter about a pick up like that
