Chris Davis is making a very good case at winning the 2013 American League MVP award. He is currently at a .296BA 50HR 129RBIs. He joins Babe Ruth and Albert Belle as the only players in MLB history to achieve 50 homers and 40 doubles. Belle actually accomplished 50hr/50dbls. It will be difficult to pass the reigning MVP and last year’s Triple Crown Winner, Miguel Cabrera who is once again having a stellar season as well, .348BA 43HR 133RBIs.
