Chris Davis Suspension Timing Awful Suspicious

Recommended Posts

No, I don't believe that without a little more evidence. You know, something other than baseless speculation put forth in a condescending tone of voice. What I do believe is that baseball conspiracy theories are an offseason time suck for losers.

1) No condescension here. That's your imagination. (FYI, there's no "tone" established by me. If you must know, it was in an inquisitive tone of voice, not a condescending one).

2) Name-calling? Why? No reason to get nasty. None whatsoever.

I have no doubt that someone in the Yankees or Red Sox organization could have tipped off the MLB drug enforcement testers to look closely at Davis as the playoffs approached. I don't put it above any of them considering how often they've looked the other way with players in their organization over the last 15 years.

I know some folks scoff at the concept of conspiracy theories, but I know enough about the dirt behind the scenes to know that Davis' suspension seemed to come at the most inopportune time for the Orioles.

Why would the Red Sox care? And even the Yankees are out of the division race now and the wild card looks awfully remote.

As an attempt to disrupt the Orioles in their playoff run.

Not as wild an idea as some folks believe.

Why would they care how the Orioles do in the playoffs if they aren't in the playoffs. Did the Orioles get ARod suspended last season?

No no no. Conspiracies only happen against you, never for you.

Name calling? Oh, I'm not call you a loser, that's your imagination. If you must know I'm talking about the Astros and the Rangers and teams like that whose fans will have ample time come October to come up with all kinds of contrived - excuse me, sophisticated - reasoning revealing why a reality that is obvious and acknowledged is nonetheless untrue. May this utter waste of time bring comfort to those who need it.

I'm not being nasty, just inquisitive. Why is a cover-up necessary to understand the Chris Davis situation?

So let me see if I've got the theory straight:

The Red Sox -- a team that has already been eliminated, has nothing to play for, and has no reason to give a flying fig about the Orioles or any other team -- cooked up a conspiracy to tell the MLB drug testers to take an extra-close look at the drug test results of Chris Davis, because they were convinced that a guy in the midst of his worst-ever season would magically heat up during the playoffs and possibly lead the O's to a World Series win, which the Red Sox -- again, a team that has no vested interest in the outcome of the playoffs this year -- couldn't bear to contemplate.

That does sound much more likely than, you know, Chris Davis taking a banned substance and then failing the drug test.

Troll of trolls.

And here we go.

Same ol' pattern. I remain calm and speak with respect and then the flapjack crew comes out of nowhere to deliberately flame the situation.

Guys, the Orioles are a winning club, this stuff is SO 2009.

I don't believe that there is a conspiracy in this particular case.

Regarding a possible appeal, I'm sure that someone has probably already made note of this, but this is a case in which it is probably best not to appeal. The reason being is that an appeal would allow Davis to play a few more games now, but it would probably only delay his suspension (as opposed to having it reduced, or pardoned. And if that happened, it (the suspension) would probably cover the entire postseason for the Orioles, instead of the 8 games that it currently is.

The last thing the Orioles need at this moment is an ongoing PED sideshow as a distraction. I have to believe CD gets that.

I don't think it's a conspiracy. Unfortunately baseball has rules against certain substances and unfortunately Chris tested positive.

If this was the NBA I would absolutely suspect something. That sport is as corrupt as you can imagine. I haven't heard the same about MLB. Though with anything, I can't say it would surprise me.

Are you kidding me? All professional sports are about one thing. To suck as much money out of the public as possible. Have you not seen the NFL lying about the Ray Rice scandal? Much like Ray Rice, I think someone knew about this a long time ago and didn't admit to it. Anyone that believes any thing out of an owners or commissioners mouth should accept the free cruises we all get over the phone.
