Superheros have tragic flaws. On the day Chris Davis was to become immortalized as one at Camden Yards, his was a team-worst .196 batting average and persistent flu bug.

So while Crush Davis, a plastic action figure distributed Saturday to Orioles fans, could rescue teammate Brian Matusz from some dastardly evildoer ...

... he could not rescue his real-life inspiration from the bench.

Crush Davis, meanwhile, saw plenty of the field, even if it was from far, far above.
