Just watched a Chris Davis at bat from 2015. He was facing a lefty Abad from Oakland, and he homered after a lengthy at bat. What really stood out was how much chew he had in his mouth. I think his slide is coinciding with the tobacco band. Might just be in his head but, that's all it takes sometimes.

I'm not sure how I implied that. Of course we can't escape his salary by releasing him. Nonetheless, it doesn't make sense to keep him on the team if he's not contributing. At some point we have to bight the bullet. And I don't think he'll last long if he continues to embarrass the club.

That is how I read this exchange (below).  Perhaps that is not how you meant it, but that is how it came across, at least by my read.

At some point the team has to realize he has nothing more to contribute as a Major League player.

You could say that about half the team.  Davis isn't getting released and I have no idea why so many on this board think that it is a possibility.

True, you could say that about half the team, but none of them are being paid the salary Davis is, and they aren't as old as he is. They can be released at any time with little consequence.

1) Are you a fan of anyone?

2) If you do a search on your posts that include the word Davis you get 471 results.

Who are you a fan of on the current 25.  I would say for me Villar, Cobb, Givens, Castro, Blieir.

What about the Ubaldo pothole option?

I think the Ubaldo pothole option is used at least once before they release him. They have $~millions~$ of reasons to take as much time as possible with him.

Wasn't he "hurt" sometime last year?  I'm trying to remember but lots of details are fuzzy.

Injured in spring training last year.

Yes.

I posted before reading the comments. But I predicted that he would spend most of the second half of the season on the DL...somehow.

Figured I'd update since we're entering "Davis is starting to crunch the roster" territory and also "Davis is not really any better" territory. 

To be clear: I route for the guy, I really do. I am a Chris Davis fan. It was really fun when he had that good stretch. He may have more good stretches! We'll see.

In the meantime:

2.42% guessed wrong that he'd be released before the season. 

18.18% await the All Star break to see if they were correct. This selection includes some OH veterans who have staked their name.

6.06% rolled the dice on a small window of time in which Davis gets released DURING the AS break. 

See you on July 9 for the next update.
