    The “Kingman of the 21st Century”, Age 26 seasons:
    *
    2012 Chris Davis: 121 OPS+, 3.0 AB per K, 15.2 PA per BB, 15.6 AB per HR
    1975 Dave Kingman: 118 OPS+, 3.3 AB per K, 16.0 PA per BB, 13.9 AB per HR
    2016 Giancarlo: 119 OPS+, 3.0 AP per K, 9.4 PA per BB, 15.3 AB per HR

    Even if you ignore that Giancarlo was a much better hitter prior to Age 26 than either of those players he was still drawing walks last year while in 1975 Kingman tied for 2nd in HR, the entire NL drew a Walk every 11.1 PA, the average player was 44% more likely to draw a walk. The 2016 NL drew a Walk every 12.0 PA, the average player was 28% less likely to draw a walk than Giancarlo.
