Found May 15, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
Starting last season, Chris Davis has basically come out of no where to become one of the best power hitters in the game. He emerged last season in his first full season as a Baltimore Oriole, he hit 33 home runs and 85 RBIs.

When I expressed that idea, I received a fair bit of push-back - it seems like people don't think that Wieters is actually that good...
