Six of the 13 batters are older than Davis.  Who says that Davis won't age well?

Jayson Heyward last three years: 114, 109, 116.  Good luck Chicago Cubs.

What worries me is plate discipline and ba. Guys like Votto and Batista walk almost as much as they k, and in Votto's case consistently hit for a high average. What I fear for Davis is a 30's similar to Dave Kingman, who continued hitting 40 homers right through his age 39 retirement year, but recorded record 200+ k #s and hit .190 or low .200 s with very few walks.
