Chris Davis 2019 and beyond

Since starting with an alarming rate,

His K-per has settled down as of late.

He swung: the EV was 108;

He gazed and dropped the bat at the plate.

Let's hope this is the start of something great.

I don't think it's even up for debate.

After receiving some NESN broadcast hate,

he reminds them that these balls don’t deflate.

Though Davis appears to have dropped some weight,

Perhaps this begins a home-run spate.

In the 4-game series against the Red Sox, Davis had 14 plate appearances ........ he was 4-for-13 with a Walk, a Home Run, 2 Doubles, and a Single. He struck out 4 times.

We’ve got years to anticipate
Crush or Crash or D-Replace late.
He's Birdland’s richest potentate,
But King of Swat or K’s on 3 straight?

Something just seems different as of late with Davis.  And it's not just is ball off of bat speed, or making contact and putting the ball in play.  I'm not making some grand proclamation that he's back to his old form, but an even slight improvement from last year is huge considering how awful he was.  Let's hope it continues.

And there'll be no joy in Birdland

When mighty Chris D has struck out!

Mullins better watch himself.  After all this Davis hate, Mullins is about an 0 for 4 away from his batting average being UNDER Davis.

Think now would be a logical time to try to lock him up with an extension?

Management should say they will extend him for another 10 years.  Just won't give him any more money.

Davis removed from line up. I think it’s a big trade. Has to be. Right? Right!?!

Maybe it was something on his plate?

Possibly a meal he had to regurgitate?

Davis is literally the most interesting story on this team right now, if he leaves who do we talk about, Sucre?

Through last night:

Davis: .089

Mullins:  .098

Tonight should be the night Mullins drops below Crush.

So the question is, we know Davis can't go anywhere because of the contract, but perhaps its time to send Mullins down to develop more before his confidence is completely destroyed.  I mean, Elias sent everyone else down for development, so why is Mullins getting a pass?  He's not a major league hitter.  

Thoughts?

Plenty of thoughts, and you can find them all here

My thought is that Elias doesn't think he's a ML hitter so he isn't worried about development.

    • Just a curiosity I heard a clip in a silly vid. So NSFW I can't even post the vid cuz of the title. I did have that New Medicine vid disappeared from The Suck thread on the main page yesterday... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcrexKS8kxA  
    • o   (APRIL 23rd)   Orioles win. Red Sox lose ........ TWICE !!!   o
    • An extra update on Grover, from Roch: "Grover recovered from an oblique injury suffered late in camp and was dominant in his outings at extended spring training. He didn’t allow a run in eight innings, walking three batters and striking out an astounding 22. A slow-climber with his fastball velocity, Grover dialed it up earlier than usual this year. I’m told that his heater averaged 95 mph and topped out at 100 mph. There’s room for more."
    • o   The topic is whether or not players on the Orioles would be on another Major League roster if they were not here, and you opined that Bundy would not be when I said that Dwight Smith Jr is playing well enough to at least be a 4th outfielder on a lot of other teams. Bundy's splits going through the opposition's order the first time this season is inordinately better than when he goes through it a second time, save for his last start when he was effective the 2nd and 3rd times through. There is plenty of room on other MLB rosters besides the Orioles for a pitcher whom is capable of pitching well for 2 or 3 innings, just as there is room for other MLB teams that could use Dwight Smith Jr as a 4th outfielder on their roster.   o
    • I'm not telling anyone how to raise their kids.  I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that if a kid can't handle a normal city atmosphere that it might be a good idea if they were exposed to that more.  Or not.  Just stay in the suburbs and avoid the city environment at all costs.   I was really just comparing my experience.  Me and plenty of my friends and family have been to the stadium dozens if not hundreds of times and have had zero issues involving our personal safety.  There is perception and there is reality.  There is also culture shock.  Which I sympathize with.  But only one way to get over that.     
    • I don't have the data to back this up, but what I've observed leads me to believe the following: 1.  An MLB team's "attendance" is built largely, and increasingly, on the sale of season tickets. (Keep in mind that what we refer to as attendance doesn't reflect the number of fans that pass through the turnstile. It's the number of tickets sold.) That's especially true of "full" season tickets, covering all 81 games, and less true of multi-game ticket packages. 2.  It's a lot easier to sell season tickets in cities where there are (a) large numbers of (big professional service firms (law firms, accounting firms, management consulting firms, etc.) that are prepared to spend on client entertainment and (b) lots of wealthy individuals. Before the Nats arrived, the Orioles did pretty on the first part by attracting season ticket holders from Washington's stable of large service firms. Now they are far, far behind three of their division rivals on both scores, with no hope of closing that gap. 3. Many season ticket buyers (and again, I'm talking about full season tickets) make their decisions to buy, including their decisions whether to hang on to existing full season tickets, well in advance of the season. Those decisions are made based on someone's (and maybe not a very knowledgeable someone's) sense of how the team shapes up for the coming season and how much interest its games will generate among clients, employees and friends. A couple of bad seasons, when season ticket holders see that clients and friends aren't eager to go to those games, will drive away season ticket buyers. If the team performs better than expected, or is more exciting and entertaining to watch than was expected, it's very hard to sell enough tickets on a game-by-game basis to replace those lost season ticket holders.  4. Selling season tickets to the 2018 and 2019 Baltimore Orioles can't have been easy. the same will be true for at least a few more years.
    • Bundy average 90.7 mph on his fastball in his last start.  His fastball speed just keeps going down. We have seen this before from other players with shoulder issues.  And we know how it ends.  It is a shame as I had high hopes for Bundy.
