    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    The only hope is that he is so embarrassed by his play and unhappy playing baseball that he is open to negotiating some type of buyout and even then I doubt we would recoup a large percentage of the money that he is owed. Other than that we have no leverage. If he's content on riding out the contract and just showing up to collect a paycheck, I doubt he cares if he isn't playing. In fact, he has to expect that at this point that his playing time is going to shrink considerably going into 2019 and beyond. I think he will be DFA at some point in the 2019 season without a buyout being negotiated. They'll give him one last chance to see if he can turn it around even though the chances of that happening are slim to none.

    Understatement of the year. You'd be hard pressed to find any Triple A player who is not better than Davis right now. In fact, I really don't think Davis could even hit Triple A or Double A pitching at this point.

    I thought the backup catcher was supposed to be the muscle for whenever the team got in a benches clearing brawl.

    Anyone know why Palmer keeps saying that Davis is having trouble seeing the ball? Davis' decline has been getting worse for three years, so his eyesight is not getting better.

    On the record: What I want is...

    If Brady is around the GM doesn't have full control. Brady has to go. (assuming the stories are true) Once a person has gone around you to the boss man, they're always going to be a snake in the grass and unhealthy to have around. Brady needs take his hair gel and go try and look 23 years old somewhere else.

    I'd be really surprised if he would accept something like that. Certainly any agent would advise against it, because it's basically saying not to money that someone has already signed a contract saying they would give you. The player would have to be so miserable in his situation and so humiliated by it that he would overrule his agent, and feel the wrath of the players union, to turn down a large amount of money that he is owed.

    Whoever has the guts to keep Davis away from the batter's box.

    Maybe they could negotiate some form of buyout if it is made clear that he likely would be sitting for the duration of his deal, playing some late defense innings or in emergencies.

    Looks better and can definitely get even more from the lower half. I said this in my top 20, but I think he's going to have a huge breakout next year due to these changes and mainly from that boost in confidence from being in the launch pad that is Frederick.

    Internal manager candidates

    I'd be OK with Ron Johnson. I hope that they let the man pick his own coaches, though.

    Internal manager candidates

    Doesn't matter to me one bit just as long as they don't abuse anybody's arms/playing time and provide a solid example to the players....and don't play any veterans over future centerpieces for the club unless absolutely necessary (health, for example). Otherwise, if the team is going to royally suck, it doesn't matter what name you put out there.

    What is wrong with a backup catcher? Ideally, your backup catcher is somewhat of a coach. No, Caleb's season hasn't been great. Sure there are much better players out there. But that doesn't take away from what he can offer and what he knows. The backup catcher becomes the best manager. The best manager was a backup catcher. I started when I played, but I like to think of myself as a "backup catcher." The same way a while-collared professional may have a blue-collared work ethic. It is a good thing!

    Just watching DJ Stewart hit, it is clear that he is better than Davis right now.

    Will Chris Davis make it to 502 PA?

    Maybe he'll never see the new hitting coach. I'm still holding out hope we rip the bandaid off on October 1 and cut him. I really HOPE that playing him nearly every day this year has been to determine once and for all if there was any way he could turn it around. And the answer is clear so they just do the inevitable. It's sunk cost.

    I agree completely. And he will cost very little.

    i don't see additional strength helping Chris Davis. You have to be able to make contact.

    Per Nightingale: Dan Stays, Buck Goes.

    If one really worked at it, maybe one could come up with a worse list, but it would be a stretch. We need a low cost, developmental, tolerant and low ego manager...none of these on this list bring us anything except egos and expensive baggage.

    Maybe if it’s Barry Bonds and he brings his bag full of goodies.

    Inexcusable, but my question about being the worst remains the same.
