Chris Davis left camp this morning after coming down with the same illness.

“Not feeling well this morning,” Hyde said. “Hopefully, it’s not too long. But the thing’s kind of going around a little bit and he didn’t feel well, and so we got him checked out and sent him back.”

I'm not so sure that a .175 hitter has ever gotten so much attention before.  I'm aware I've posted several times on here about Davis but....so have a lot of you.  I'm part of the problem, I freely admit it.  

Quite frankly, I don't care how he got bigger, etc.  If he feels it helps, I hope that's what he needs to feel better at the plate.  I'm just kinda tired of obsessing over Davis...only really care if he retires or gets cut.  Anything else is an annoyance, really.

You spelled money wrong.   It's m-o-n-e-y, not  a-t-t-e-n-t-i-o-n

This actually depends.  A bigger guy like Davis with a bigger frame could. I'm sure he hired a full time trainer and food specialist.  He already had the mass, just needed to convert it.  Now if he had a smaller frame and big growth, ala Barry Bonds, I'd say...yeah. Also, if he was looking into retiring he probably wasn't working out as hard. 

I have an XXL frame and am inch shorter than Davis. I could probably add 25 pounds in a few months if I followed a beer and pizza diet.  But I don’t think 25 pounds of muscle is anyway possible.

If you don't take the bat off your shoulder it doesn't matter if it's lighter.

I'm not sure I'm following you. The weight of the bat makes a big difference for whether you can get the bat off your shoulder in time. When players can't, they don't swing.

A lighter bat isn't going to help when he takes a center-center strike three.

To be fair, the bug has hit several of the players.

Exactly, I think they are doing this with any player showing the signs of illness.

Seams like it happens just about every spring camp.

Flu season still going strong, and combine that with all those players traveling to Florida and being around each other it's a recipe for getting sick. Better now than closer to the end of March.

Most .175 hitters don't get paid $23M per season.

    • That is just a fancy way of saying, "the reason is money". There isn't a shortage of cows in this country. If MLB wanted to open their own tannery or whatever, they certainly have the resources. Surely fans would pay more to purchase beef made with cows that provided their hides to MLB balls.
    • Interesting that all the promotions announced were pitchers. Also curious what the moves are in Norfolk to open up the 3 spots. 
    • Passing on Rocker may have been a really good decision.  Mets think something up with the elbow, deal in jeopardy:    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/07/mets-agreement-with-draft-pick-kumar-rocker-in-jeopardy.html
    • I am right in line with those who want to see the Orioles win as many games as they can this year, and even better if those wins come with big contributions from those who are counted on to be, or can build a case to be, part if a winning Oriole team a couple of years from now. I don't doubt for a minute that every player who has worn an Orioles uniform in 2021 has tried his best to make the team succeed. I have the same certainty about Hyde and the coaches. The problem I have is with Elias (and, I guess, John Angelos, although I don't know how involved he is in implementing the Orioles' rebuilding strategy, including the extreme stinginess in building this season's roster). Elias is the executive v.p. and general manager of the Baltimore Orioles. It's customary -- insulting to the fans, and probably unwise -- for general managers to say little about the team or their plans, and to let the manager do the talking. Elias largely follows that model; he rarely speaks, and when he does he discloses very little. But it sure seems that he doesn't have any interest in how the team he was hired to lead -- his team -- plays this year. Does he go to Orioles games? Does he watch them on TV? It wouldn't surprise me if he does neither. I suspect that if he worked for me, and the facts were available to me, I would conclude he had badly neglected one part of his job. I don't think Elias gives a damn whether the Orioles win 40 or 50 or 60 games this year, and his actions have given lots of observers reason to believe, or take as a serious possibility, that those moves reflect a goal of having the Orioles win fewer games to get an earlier draft pick. (If that were true, and it's almost inconceivable that we'll ever know, I think Elias should be fired and perhaps barred from baseball.) I sure don't think he cares, if he even knows, about how his rebuilding strategy has discouraged fans and led to terrible attendance (fifth worst in MLB if you ignore Toronto, ahead of only the Florida teams, Oakland and Pittsburgh). I wish he would make some effort to show that he cares about his team's performance as much as the Orioles' players and remaining fans do.
    • From what I’ve read, there are also some issues about whether there’s a sufficient supply of the quality of leather used for major league balls.  
    • 3/4 so far today with a double and another stolen base.  Currently has a .333 average with a .993 OPS. Mayo, and perhaps Baumler to a lesser extent, were always going to be under the microscope with the underslot strategy but it's even more intense now with Kjerstad dealing with his illness. Couldn't ask for a better start so far for Mayo.
