Red Sox fans had cruel chant for Chris Davis

Chris Davis

Boston Red Sox fans had a cruel chant for Chris Davis during Friday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Davis is working on a brutal stretch and has not recorded a hit all season. He’s now gone 54 straight at-bats without a hit if you date back to last season. Knowing full well about his struggles, Red Sox taunted Davis with sarcastic “MVP” chants before his appearance as a pinch hitter on Friday.

Davis pinch hit with two outs in the ninth inning with his Orioles down 6-4. He hit a soft liner to short right for the final out of the game. The ball went where it usually would go for a hit, but it was an easy out due to the shift.

Davis continues to embarrass himself with his futility. What’s especially baffling is that he continues to hit into the shift instead of just dropping a bunt when half the field is wide open for him.
