Well, readers of this blog know, I've been following Chicago White Sox DH/infielder Matt Davidson closely for a couple of years now (here, here, and here). Hooray for small sample size and all that, but if his smashing performance in the team's opener on Thursday is any indication, my study's gonna be a lot of fun this summer. Davidson became only the fourth major-league player since 1908 to hit three homers on opening day. Jim Margalus at Sox Machine adds: "Just as importantly, Davidson drew a walk without striking out. He only had 16 zero-K games out of 107 starts last year, and he only strung together K-less starts twice."
"A lot of us don’t have a huge track record in the major leagues, so the confidence is going to be a big thing,” Davidson said in the Chicago Tribune. “Actually seeing the results in front of our eyes is going to be huge for us and our development. We want to keep on having those days, so we remember we’re that good."
On Thursday they were that good. But it's March.
