“Chris is a huge team guy,” Wieters said. “He’s about winning more than anything. We’re all rooting for him because of that, because he cares more about us winning than any kind of home run title. Everybody in this clubhouse is rooting for him to keep going because, one, it’s going to help us win and two, because he deserves it.”
Said Davis: “There’s going to be a different home run king every year. Somebody is going to come along and break somebody else’s record. For me, the individual awards are nice, but at the end of the day, I play for the ultimate team award. To say that you were part of a winning team, or even a championship team, is something that nobody can ever take away from you. That’s how I feel about it.”
