Welcome to the new age of the AL East, where every team is strong and every team has its star players.
And Chris Davis is the next superstar in this division.
Sure, he's already 27, but the next five to six years could easily be MVP-caliber ones for Davis. His 2012 (33 HRs, 85 RBI) was a sign of things to come, but not too many expected this.
Davis leads the majors with 19 homers this season, with a mark of 50 RBI also near tops (if it weren't for some guy named Miguel Cabrera) in the AL.
As part of a lineup that is growing and getting more talented by the day, Davis is the driving force for what will be a playoff-caliber team for years to come.
