That would be an excellent outcome. 

Why would you want someone who represents our team to be caught doing something illegal?

For the length of the suspension the O's would have another roster spot and wouldn't have to pay him.

That's pretty obvious right?

As I’ve said before. the new regime has had a full season and now a full offseason with Davis I’m sure with oberservations and analysis from last season they put a offseason program in place for Davis to follow so far from everything I’ve read and noticeably seen in added bulk along with a small sample size of at bats it appears to have had a positive impact on CD. I have faith in this regime and believe if anybody can get the best out of CD they can.

2018 OPS+ 49 and 2019 OPS+ 60. 

Also it's not illegal it's just against MLB rules.

I'm sure it would violate some laws.

The scenario is that he is caught and retires. That would save us $60M and finally clear the way for Mountcastle.

No...

To hope that a player who has done plenty of good things for this team and is not at fault for the exorbitant contract he was given has fallen so low that he is forced to make a decision that most likely harms his own body (in the long run), further embarrasses his team and destroys his remaining legacy, such that it is, is pathetic from where I stand.

Can this team get any more embarrassed?  Look to the future.

He’s going to dominate these next 3 seasons and make the contract look like a bargain.

He only has to average 7 wins a season here on out to make the deal look good.

    • I think this is it? https://twitter.com/bubbaprog/status/1320228109535367168?s=20
    • Yep, I've felt that way for several years now. I don't blame teams pursuing optimal strategies for their success, and that has what has led to this.  But the unintended consequences is that the game is less interesting to a lot of fans, and that doesn't bode well for the future of the game. I was never a huge tennis fan but I enjoyed it back in the Borg/Connors/McEnroe era.  But the players got stronger and the rackets better and the game became about super hard serves for aces and not as much about great volley points.  I lost all interest in watching men's tennis. And I think a lot of others lost interest too.  There was a time when the weekly or biweekly tennis tournament, even when it wasn't a major, at least got mentioned on the sports page or SportsCenter.  Like the nonmajor golf tournaments still do.  Not anymore.  To any casual or even fairly dedicated sports fan, nothing even exists but the majors anymore. I'd hate to see baseball just drift off and disappear into obscurity like that in 30 or 40 years.  Lucky for me it's unlikely I'll live that long.
    • I would have said “Stevie” at the end of Summer Camp. But Valaika put on an impressive power show this season. 
    • I could not have said it better myself, and I have tried. Well said!
    • Been thinking about last night's game.  For me, it was a great reminder that baseball is at its best, most exciting and most entertaining when a ball is put in play with runners on base: fielders reacting to the batted ball, runners reacting to the fielders, fielders reacting to the runners, runners ignoring the coaches, everyone making split-second decisions  based on their estimates of their and their opponents' ability and their own, taking into account the score and the inning. No other sport has that kind of panoramic activity and uncertainty, with so many possible outcomes.  I'll take that kind of action over a launch-angle ball hit 10 rows into the stands, followed by meaningless trotting around the basis, any day. Baseball is losing that excitement, and nobody in authority seems to care.    
    • Maryland football is the biggest joke in the Big Ten now that Rutgers looks decent.  Losing 43-3 to freakin’ Northwestern might be an all-time low for this program.     Locksley has to be the worst coach in a power five conference.  Never should’ve fired Durkin, or even Matt Canada.  What are the odds Locksley ever wins 5 games like Canada did in his only year here?  What are the odds Locksley ever wins another game as coach of the Terps?
    • Yes, that’s my feeling as well. I was just wondering if there was a clear favorite among the group.
