Chris Davis is 1 for his last 52 with 28 strikeouts. That is a batting average of .019. He is making $23 million a year. This has to end.... My God....

 

Be Best.

In a sad, moribund kind of way, I'm kinda interested to see how long he can go without a hit.  Is he the new Bill Bergen?

Truly Is Davis the worst player over the last 170 games in the history of mlb?  I would bench him and and tell him he would never to see his name in a starting lineup again.  See how he reacts.

He is nine at bats from tying the record for most at bats without a hit. If Davis can break the record maybe then the Orioles bench him? 🤷‍♂️

The record is 46?  That would be like the anti-DiMaggio streak.

Well Davis is the anti-DiMaggio, he had 369 strikeouts for his career. Davis had 221 strikeouts in the 2016 season.

The GM's job isn't to listen to fan's advice on whom to sign.

Of course I don't think Dan had much to do with Davis being signed.

Yeah, he didn’t want to sign CD, that was all Buck & Brady, the latter of which is still here for some very unsettling reason.

Correct. We all have various beefs with DD, but he was NOT in favor of CD to be clear. Shocked to read that misinformation.

DD traded for Trumbo to be Davis replacement at 1B.

When you look at the final year or two of “the greats” on a baseball card or on baseballreference, you see those really sad subpar years with fewer AB and simply “far below their prime” numbers. What followed immediately after was retirement. 

Davis is there. Davis is not “a great”. His defense does not do enough to counterbalance the near record dearth of offense. He needs to hang it up. 

Brooks 1975: .541 OPS

Brooks 1976: .548 OPS

Brooks 1977: .467 OPS

I'd love to know what is on CD's mind right now. It has got to be obvious to him that it is over. I'm not sure I have ever seen a MLB player look so lost and overmatched at the plate, let alone a former all-star and HR leader. I don't know how a self-respecting person can keep collecting a paycheck while performing so poorly. I had to watch the game on YES today, and they had a long talk about how unprecedentedly awful the whole Davis situation is. Every series I'm sure the opposing media is doing the same. It's got to be embarrassing.  

I'd like to think he will retire soon and work out some sort of buyout with the Orioles. But then again I have no idea what his mindset is; maybe he has surrounded himself with people that have convinced him he is still going to turn it around. Maybe he is delusional. Maybe (probably) there are mental issues. Chris has always seemed like a nice fellow, I'd like to think he will own it eventually. But, like the song says, money changes everything.

Maybe this is s silly idea. But unless/until he turns it around, can Hyde have the pitchers hit and put in a DH for Davis?

To be fair, Brooks had had a decent 1974 (.728, AS, GG, 12th in MVP) and appeared in only 71 and 24 games in the last two seasons you cited.

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
