"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.

    • I think that in most cases small market teams could hold onto their star players if they wanted to.
    • I feel like I have lost my mind even bringing it up as a conversation/kidding around. Imagine a 162 game season with 5 playoffs teams like normal. Would be 154 games left. Even as a joke nobody would bring it up.
    • I'm working on enjoying the moment but these wins are feeling a little bit Pyrrhic, as the risk of missing a shot at one more rare talent for the next good team's core group increases. I took a little comfort this weekend in that entering 1989 - with today's perspective I might have looked for a McDonald bookend, then we went and did all that winning and only got...Mike Mussina (but not Chipper Jones). It isn't that I want the team to lose, it is more that this team very likely ought to lose.  In 162, they would surely earn X for the peak Rutschman teams, but the circumstances of 2020 might conspire to block the org from having what it "deserves". But hey, if we can sweep the Rays, the Pirates can sweep the Twins, right?
    • Of course it’s way too soon. Just having a little fun. Like I said in 2 weeks we may be under .500 and headed towards 40 losses. 
    • It’s not 15% of the way through the season,  I know that much. I don’t think there’s a magic number but I do think that they are playing above their head right now. I also don’t think Lil Yaz is the best player in baseball.
    • https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29525916/what-2020-mlb-season-bring-all-30-teams  This article was printed on 7/29/20. From, The Tankers section at the bottom... "If the Orioles win the World Series, it won't be because they're secretly better than we thought, and they won't ask us to believe it. It'll just be chaos. We'll love it. ...No bad team has ever won, or will win, a World Series. Except this year, one might. As FanGraphs' playoff odds show, cutting the season from 162 games to 60 increased the Tigers' chances of making the playoffs by 20 times. And that was before they doubled the number of playoff teams. It's still unlikely that the Tigers will win the World Series, and the Orioles are so bad that in simulations their odds of making the playoffs barely moved at all. But this season, for the first time in major league history, teams like the Marlins, Orioles, Tigers, Mariners and Royals have actual chances. In a way, this is history, and the Orioles have a chance to make it." There was another article I read that I can't locate now that was actually insulting to the O's, but very funny too.  I think most of us get that dichotomy with our club over the past couple decades.  Anyway, it said of our chances something to the effect, "...seriously?!"  I laughed out loud. I'm glad so far that it hasn't turned out as bad as what was expected by the "experts."  At least it's fun to watch.  Go O's.
