Minor League Mayhem

This really doesn't have much to do with anything, but I was reading a short post about Chris Davis at John Sickel's Minor League Ball, and apparently Chris Davis has become quite a polarizing player.  The post -- which simply asked where you would rank Davis in the top 50 if he were still considered a prospect -- is followed up by a huge and heated discussion about his strikeout rates, home run totals, minor league vs major league stats, etc. etc.  It's amazing that less than 6 months ago Davis was getting next to zero publicity, and suddenly during the offseason he's become one of the most debated topics among stat heads.  

Like I said, it doesn't have much to do with anything, but interesting nonetheless.
