8 Scorching MLB Starts That Won't Last
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Chris Davis is on pace to break a ton of records, but his hot bat will cool down soon enough.

A strong start to the season means absolutely nothing.

It doesn’t matter if a batter hits a home run in his first handful of games or a pitcher strikes out half the guys he faces in his first start. The Major League Baseball season is 162 games long, and we're only a week in.

For the players with somewhat uncharacteristic hot starts, it’s tough to say that their success will continue at this point in the year. There are plenty of players who have had fantastic starts to the season, but will fade sometime between now and the dog days of summer.
