This Day in LSB History

New, comments

Two years ago today, we learned that, because of the awful performances of Hank Blalock and Andruw Jones, the Rangers were going to recall Chris Davis from Oklahoma to take over at first base.

Davis was demoted in July of 2009 after being terrible throughout the first half of the season, and it was hoped that Davis would, upon his return, resume hitting like he did in 2008.

We know how that turned out.  Davis is now in Baltimore, albeit on the disabled list with a shoulder injury that was apparently bothering him while he was with the Rangers (although he didn't tell anyone).  

As you can imagine, the discussion in the comments section of that post two years ago was rather spirited.
