The heck was up with 2013?

On Aug. 13, when Matt Davidson was called up to the majors, Chris Mellen wrote this about Davidson's game: "While Davidson is patient at the plate, there is a lot of swing-and-miss in the third baseman’s game." In the following GIF, after which you may concede the year and go off to pursue a more optimistic future, you will see two things:
