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.

Hey, it’s only about $83 mm now!

My calculations he is owed 107.7 million.  23 * 3 for the salaries for 3 seasons after this is 69 million.  For the first 4 seasons 7 million is deferred that is 28 million.  He has a played a 1/3 rd of the season which he is due 16 million that leaves 10.7 million.

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!
