"When Eric Davis arrived on the scene in Cincinnati in 1984, he came with the label of unlimited potential. As so often occurred in that era, that label frequently came with the moniker of 'the next Willie Mays ' since the Hall of Famer was the standard bearer for players who could do it all on the baseball field. And Davis, a legitimate five-tool player if there ever was one, could indeed do it all ." - Author Joel Luckhaupt in 100 Things Reds Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die (Triumph Books, 04/01/2013, '32.
