Still think Davis will at least be here till Opening Day of next year or released perhaps right before. Or be here forever.

where is the plays out his contract option? I actually think they will just bury him on the bench and drag him all the way through the terms of the deal.

There...is....just......no way. 

I would lose all faith in humanity if that happened.

I just figured he’d hang around till his contract is up. Isn’t he owed 90 million on his contract?

I do think there may come a time when management decides it's a beneficial decision to cut bait and eat bills with regard to Davis.  Just not for another 2-3 years at the least, is my guess.

Replace management with ownership and I agree with you.

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 think it's helpful observations like this that Buck, Eddie, and others were referring to when they said there are just some things that stat-heads don't get or at least value enough. And contrary to what the brainiacs imply, it's not easy to track stuff like tobacco band and heft and speed of spit while taking in account volume of chaw, gametime temperature and humidity, and many other factors. Only an experienced on-the-field hand can intuit how to integrate it into an overall picture and series of tips. Personally speakng, I've always found it almost impossible to be patient and focused enough to chart how well the chaw comes out of a player's mouth, time to the ground, and chew and release times, and then line them up with swing mechanics.

Bravo, Riggodril44, you should send this to the team and ask for a front-row box slightly off to the third-base side to deepen your study.

I nominate this for post of the month.

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
