You log onto Facebook and see unrealistic comparisons all the time. This isn’t one of them, here’s how you can compare JD Davis to Kris Bryant by the numbers effectively.
They had a similar 2020; in 2020 here’s a look at the two.
In 2020, JD Davis had an -0.2 WAR, 6 home runs, and 19 RBI’s with a .247 batting average.
In 2020: Bryant had a 0.3 WAR, 4 home runs, 11 batted in, and a .206 batting average.
That’s for 2020. Pretty similar. I’d say Davis had the better 2020.
In 2019, things were different. Davis hit 22 home runs and drove in 57.
In 2019, Bryant hit 31 home runs and drove in 77. Bryant had the better 2019, as expected.
Career wise, they are two years apart.

In his four year career, Davis has 33 home runs and drove in 88 with a .268 batting average.
In his six year career, Bryant has 142 home runs and 414 batted in with a .280 batting average.
I’m not saying JD Davis is at Kris Bryant’s level
yet, but he could get pretty close soon.
What I’m saying is, it’s ok to compare the two. Both had a similar 2019 and 2020.
I think the Mets should trade for Bryant. Even though Davis and Bryant both play third base, it’s essential that you have a solid third baseman. Bryant could be just that if Davis is injured or traded away.
