2009 Topps Eric Davis
Eric “The Red” Davis. A monster at the plate. A danger on the basepaths. A phenom in centerfield. On the fast track to the Hall of Fame after a couple of spectacular seasons in Cincinnati in the mid-1980s (including a brilliant 1987 when he finished just 3 home runs shy of becoming the first 40-40 man), Davis was derailed by injuries. He never played more than 135 games in a season, and only reached 130 games five times in his 17-year career. His 282 home runs and 934 RBIs fall far short of what is expected of a Hall of Famer.
Davis may have played for six teams in his career, but he will always be a Redleg to me.
By the way, the MVP voters had to be on drugs in 1987. Seriously. Yes, Dawson deserved to win it, but Davis should have been way higher than ninth.
