"Wow offer made to Davis!" (7 years - $150M Not one nickle more)

Recommended Posts

The contract we offered of 7/150 was too much. If he has now asked for 8/200 then it is time to thank him for his time in Baltimore and move on. Wish him well.

I am hoping beyond hope that the Orioles shift the focus to filling more pressing needs than a first baseman. We need at least one OFer. Pitching would also be welcome.They need to be engaged right now with several players who are available to help in 2016 and beyond. Let Scott Boras see if he can find another team dumb enough to pay 8/200.

@WNST

Chris Davis believed to be seeking $200 million over eight years, per @JonHeymanCBS. Who would have thought such a thing a year ago?

Let someone else give him that.. I like Chris but come on man.

Brit just said the reports of O's upping the bid were false. She likes Alex Gordon BTW.

That's a relief. You can't negotiate with terrorists. If the Orioles decide to up from 150 then it's all over... Boras will have you right where he wants and he'll get your firstborn child.

Please just have the good sense to walk away! Thank you so much Mr. Angelos for springing for the cash, but this is bad business. We can appropriate that kind of money to build a much better baseball team without Chris Davis. No hard feelings, lets just be smart and move on.

I second this. Shalom, Chris, if $150 isn't enough. Let him go, PA.

Meh. A little hard feelings. Screw this guy. After the crap he pulled on his team in 2014, and now this, I would be a little salty if they moved up one inch from the 7/150 offer.

Is my thought process here irrational? Sure, but screw him.

Davis wants 8/200 to sign now.

Thank Chris and wish him luck. Hopefully he goes to the NL. Sign Upton and Span/Alvarez.

I agree, who is spans agent. I would try to avoid Boras at all cost.

    • 1.  Belanger 2.  Blair 3.  F. Robinson 4.  B. Robinson 5....   Oops.  Wrong century.  I'm in reminisce mode.
    • Came across this gem.  Viqueens vs the Chifs.  This is when football was a man's game.  No showboating.  Just playing the game.  
    • As of now for OD, (5) SP: Means, Cobb, Wojo, K. Stewart, Valdez (8) BP: Givens, Bleier, Castro, Armstrong, Scott, Harvey, Bailey, Rucker (9) LU: Hays, Smith Jr., Mancini, Santander, Nunez, Ruiz, Alberto, Severino, Iglesias  (4) Bench: Sisco, Urena, Wilkerson, Davis  
    • Remember that Miguel Gonzalez started the 2012 season in AAA for us. He was 28.  https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=gonzal004mig Gonzales also had tied to our then GM’s former team, BOS. Valdez has had a longer track record of success. It looks like he’s a guy that never got a chance because he couldn’t throw hard enough.  This is one of the few fun parts about rebuilding. You get to see players like Valdez that are hungry to make it and this is their big chance.   
    • Thanks for putting the list together. I’d want Sanchez, Vargas, Estrada. Those are the only players I’d offer a mlb deal to.   The rest of those guys on that last have serious injury and/or performance issues. I’ll never be mad at an milb deal though.  We can offer 30-35 GS. Would they take an Iglesias type deal of 1/$3million?
    • As usual the combine will change things as players climb and slide.
    • Two who should not be in: Bonds and Clemens: Never.  Their statistics are inflated due to steroids and letting cheaters in is not a good message. Manny Ramirez too.  There are too many players in the Hall who don't deserve to be there based on their accomplishments.  Standards have been lowered in certain cases. . Gary Carter for example.  I'd consider Schilling and Fred Lynn but I'd have to look at their lifetime stats first. Rivera should not have been the first unanimous choice when so many other great players were not unanimous.  Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Frank Robinson, they were far more valuable than a closer.  Also Rivera blew. a couple of post seasons series for the Yankees.  By the same token I'm glad Jeter was not unanimous and I give credit to the writer who kept that from happening.
