Quote Number 1:

“I think one of the coolest things about the process is that it looked like I was going to be able to be on a winning team. Especially looking at the Rockies and having a pretty young core in general and really talented core. That was one of the things that was really intriguing and something to be excited about.”

Make no mistake about it … there were plenty of teams who were interested in acquiring Davis for the upcoming season and beyond. And yes, the money may have a lot to do with where Davis actually signed. However, the level of talent on Colorado’s team also played a big role in his final decision.

David can immediately step on the field and know he has some of the best infielders in the game behind him in Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story and DJ LeMahieu. He also complimented Colorado’s offense during the call, saying the Rockies were in the “top handful” of offenses in Major League Baseball.

Combining a solid defensive infield and a solid offense who can put up some runs is big. And if Davis is committing himself to a club after being in the postseason five of the past seven seasons, rest assured that he wants to make it back to late October baseball as much as anyone in the clubhouse.
