    Krush Davis of the Atheletics

    Who does he reminds us of in batting stance and swing?

    I wonder who will guess it first.

    A decade ago he would of been looking at a huge payday next offseason. Probably the best power hitter in baseball right now. 40+ homers 3 straight years now.

    No idea if their stances are similar or not; but every time I hear kris Davis, I think of Eric davis of the reds

    Well unlike some stars who goes unnoticed. Brewers did not like him listening here in Wisconsin, but now the same people wished that they kept him.

    Somewhat, but he is short unlike the tall Davis. I am talking about a Brave. It is almost exact in every way.

    Even the way they finish a homer before crossing home plate...

    I am surprise those who are my age can't see this quickly. Just watch the game last night. Tell me who does he resembles? His homers were almost in the same exact position last night, maybe a foot or two at most. Now this Brave rarely hit homers to the opposite field and only Dale Murphy and Freeman does/did it with regularity. Murphy wore out the right field fence with his homers.

    Reminds me of Nelson Cruz. Brewers never gave him a chance either

    Nope

    Seriously do I need to give more hints. The only difference is that Khrush k's a lot more but pitchers arsenal is much more so than then. The Braves hitter could hit 40 easily in this league after adjusting.

    Further more, he would probably lead the league every year because he usually doesn't chase bad pitches, the umpire would have to ring him up. That is a dead give away right there.

    Krush had a similar stance to Horner and the quick bat speed with his wrist. Horner was slightly beefier but Krush is highly compact.

    If Horner played today with his skills, he would hit 40 every year if he did not have the injury bug. And he would not strike out even 100 times in a year. He rarely chase bad sliders and cutters like Davis does.
