I think he sucks. He seemed to show flashes of pretty good potential at times with TB, but wow, this dude sucks. Nice trade

Seems like for a while TB was using him in middle relief. He's not starting pitcher material

I'm not going to say he sucks, because he dosen't always, he's inconsistent.
Wil Myers isn't exactley killing it right now, I'll be patient with Davis, just like I would Myers.

4-8
5.89 ERA
1.75 WHIP

7 QS out of 18

That's not inconsistent.
That's being terrible.

Davis is very consistent.

He was in Tampa too.

He has one of the those fastballs that obviously look like a beach ball to hitters.
Hoch had it when he was a starter
Mike Macdougal had it too. Remember his 100 mph fastballs just being crushed back in the day??

Not matter how fast Davis throws his fastball the batters just tee off on it. No movement what so ever. You see 96 on the radar gun and it looks like 88 live.

He has proven that he is a very solid relief pitcher. Just not a starter. Yet...

I disagree. His 96 looks like 96. He has good stuff, which is why he had success before out of the pen. Just clearly not a starter at this point.

No, actually he just sucks. The overall numbers prove this. Not even a good politician could convince the public Wade Davis is even an average pitcher

Again. He sucks as a starter. Not as a reliever. Which is why he should be moved to the bullpen immediately.

I was the one that initially mentioned in this thread that his only MLB success has come as a middle relief pitcher

Wade Davis should be a reliever. Period. He has had his audition as a starter this year. He can get another at some point, but for now, he's a reliever. It might even be better to have Chen and Mendoza than Chen and Davis.
