How many times do we expect CD to be intentionally walked this year? 😳

Imagine being such a bad hitter that pitchers intentionally walk Chris Davis to get to you. 😫

I thought he had a decent AB in the first inning last night. He was just a little off on that high outside 3-1 fastball. That’s a pitch he was driving out the park years ago. Looks like the guy has major confidence issues that is preventing what he is capable of doing. 

It's official... he's got the yips.

Anyone else taking away small positives from Davis’ game last night. A couple good-to-great defensive plays.

He had a really good AB against Stroman when he drew the walk. Stroman dropped in two tailing(two seamers?) pitches that were called strikes in the upper right quadrant of the strike zone. Davis battled and didn’t swing through the next two pitches. 

Later in the game he made that loud out to CF. It’s just an out, but he waited back and drove the ball. Like I said, small positives. 

If Davis could just get back into the mode of driving those outside pitches to left center field, he might be able to .750 OPS. 

Baseball is just such a mental sport. Davis isn’t the underperforming vet on a “compeating” team. It has to at least be a better clubhouse for him knowing that the young guys aren’t carrying those expectations.

Alright, lots of big IFs in the following scenario....

Say Davis keeps this up and mirrors his production from last year.  But the Orioles somehow, some way keep winning games and find themselves in the thick of it come July.  I'm not saying they're going to be leading the division but they're beating teams that they should beat, hanging tough with the Sox and Yankees and have a shot at a wild card.

The team is gelling, blowing away anyones expectations.  There's a lot of good mojo going on.  Davis, while still terrible at the plate, is providing steady defense at first base and seems to be liked and respected by teammates.

Do you still find a way to get rid of Davis?  Or do you not mess with what seems to be working?

Look at Davis' size.  He isn't going to hit home runs to the opposite field anymore.  He just isn't that huge muscular guy he once was.   I think it is obvious he is done.

    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
    • This. I was always a MD Basketball fan first football fan second even though I like football more. Mostly because I grew up with Len Bias during the glory years of Lefty and then Gary Williams cam in and let them very relevent winning it all with an underdog squad. I could not be happier that Turgeon is gone as I've been off his bandwagon for a long time. He's an awful in game coach and his offense is stale, boring and basically resides around throwing up threes or letting his star be stars. Losing Wiggens and Morsell should have told Evans he needed to finally push him out the door, but now we have another lost year.  They need a splashy signing that will invigorate the recruiting and the program. I'll be honest, I tried watching a game or two but found myself disinterested and worse, I really cared less about the VT game where they just looked awful down the stretch. All I kept thinking to myself is more boring Turgeon ball. Either way, I wish there was some way to go back to the ACC but I doubt that will ever happen. MD football will always be irrelevant in the Big-10 because they will never be able to compete with Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State because they have huge packed stadiums every year and compete in major bowls while the Terps end up in Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  And yes, I had to look up a brand of douche! MD basketball should be good because of the local talent and facilities, but as was mentioned already, the college sports scene has changed with social media, one and done possibilities and the transfer pool. And that's doesn't even take into consideration the "likeness pay" is going to have. Both programs need big time coaches to ever have a chance but sadly, Evans is not concerned with making money rather than having success in the field/court.
    • I read them..but a lot of them don’t matter and/or don’t provide the advantage it used to.

    • If he is in a class of his own a la Adley was, let’s hope under slot isn’t a concern. I’m extremely excited to watch amateur ball this spring.
