Default Worst Season Ever by a Slugger?

Baltimore's Chris Davis is having what may become the all-time worst season by any 'established' power hitter.

Here are his slash numbers through 52 games:

.154/.234/.239/.474 with 4 homers and 75 strikeouts

This compares 'favorably' with Adam Dunn's full-season 'creation' in 2011:

.159/.292/.277/.569 with 11 homers and 177 strikeouts

Shades of Bobby Bonilla:

Baltimore is on the hook for four MORE Chris Davis seasons (AFTER this one) @ $23M/per.

They signed him right after he led the majors in homers twice in three years...and it's been downhill ever since.

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
