Update to the misery:

Davis is now OPSing .465, down from .480 at the start of this thread.  His OPS+ is 30.

  • He has struck out 83 times compared to 31 base hits.  He is approaching 3 Ks per base hit.  I don't know if that's ever been done in a qualifying full season.
  • He has four (4) home runs in 56 games played out of 64.  That is on pace for a whopping ten (10) HR on the season.  If that holds up, the past four years he will have gone down from 47, to 38, to 26, to ten HR.
  • His rWAR has reached -2.0.  His career rWAR was 17.9 and now it's 15.9.  He is on pace for -5.1 on the season.
  • His fWAR is merely -1.8.  His career fWAR was 17.0 and now it's 15.2.  He is on pace for -4.6 on the season.
  • As if you needed a reminder - he is making $23 million this season, partially deferred, and there are four more to go.

 

After reading that list I lost my appetite, at least I don’t have to buy dinner tonight.

Maybe he is playing poorly on purpose.  Wants to be released so he can be home with his family.  No one could be as bad as Davis has been and be trying can they?

He should look at the ball when he swings. Just a thought.

He looks to me like be is trying to strike out.  Takes two strikes up in the zone and then swings at a pitch way out of the zone that is both low and inside.

Somebody may have already said it, but just put Davis in the bullpen.

I said put him in the bullpen to be the bullpen catcher.

Chris Davis has 85 strikeouts compared to 66 total bases plus walks. Has there ever been a full time player that had more strikeouts than TB+BBs? The closest I found was Adam Dunn has 177 Ks with 180 TB+BB.

Is it possible that he could get his career WAR back to zero by the end of this contract?

Remember a little while ago Buck said he was talking to DD about players that could help the team but DD was busy with the Draft.  I think Buck wanted Hanley Ramirez.  

I feel like DD is busy working on his resume.  Brady is busy working out and there  is no one running the ship. 

There is no "helping" this team.  Blow it up and rebuild.  I'm still a fan of Buck, but this is maddening.  The O's are the worst team in the majors.  What's the difference between 100 losses and 101 losses.

100 loses? More like 120 losses.  You have some responsibility to put a major league team out there.

How much worse would the O's be if they made Davis the DH and let random fans pinch hit for him the last at bat.  The promotion could be "we did give that fan a contract."

In the "How Low Can He Go" thread, I predicted his OPS couldn't fall below .450

He's at .454 right now.  Another 0-fer game and he's below that mark.  So lost at the plate.  So unable or unwilling to make adjustments.  So sad.
