The bright side, he has a very low probability of grounding into a double play!

Always looking on the bright side!  😂

Davis does, in fact, have a very low 6.0% GIDP rate in his career, compared to 10.8% average in MLB.    And that’s largely because he strikes out so much.     Also, his GB/FB ratio is very low (.59 vs. league average .81).

I don't view that line as possible over larger samples. 

I do think the Orioles should tinker with a new sign from the 3B coach during Davis' at bats. Instead of having a "take" sign, he should have a "swing" sign. I'd rather he swing at pitches way out of the strike zone than take 88 MPH fastballs down the middle of the plate anymore. Take the thinking out of it. Just tell him to swing. Lol.

Why are we talking about batting average in 2019? Some of these opinions in this thread seem like blasts from the past. If Davis is on base over 30% of the time and slugs over .420, he at least won’t be completely worthless. If the guy can be penciled in for a .750 OPS, that’s a win. And the lower his BA, the more interesting the stats become—and the more HRs he’d need to hit to have a decent SLG. He’d probably have to hit over 40 HR.

I get what you're saying, but there really aren't many low .200 batting average guys who produce a solid OBP, OPS and SLG. Off the top of my mind the only two that did last year were Joey Gallo (batted .206) and Kyle Schwarber (batted .238). Chris Davis walks have also dropped significantly since his last good year in 2016. Everything about him is trending in the wrong the direction. And trending might not be a strong enough term. Sinking like a 500 lbs anchor is probably a better analogy.

We’re not talking about a .240 hitter. If Davis breaks the Mendoza line that would be a big accomplishment.

When your batting average is that low it’s almost impossible to be considered a productive offensive player.

If you have two players with a .318 OBP, one of whom batted .189 and one of whom batted .269, you’d usually want the guy with the higher BA, since with runners on base a hit is more valuable than a walk.    Of course, SLG also comes into play.    

I’d love to know roughly how .189/.318/.432 translates into wOBA.

The year Mark McGwire hit .187/.316/.482 his wOBA was .339.  Rob Deer's 1991 .179/.314/.386 was good for a .320.  You have to figure in league offensive context when translating that to a hypothetical Davis .189/.318/.432 line.  But it would probably be somewhere around .320 or so.

Well he is a perfect 3/3 on opening day.

Hope the O's get a few hits so he can get his 4th AB and SO

23 million year to be the worst player in history

This is good progress. Our only chance is for him to become so embarrassed he'll accept a buyout to walk away.

    • 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 !!!!
