Hint: that was just an example of the headaches of spending half the year living out of a suitcase.  Even a gold-encrusted one.

And the biggest thing is the thought process when you are no longer playing. I believe that’s the biggest element.

As long as you give him ABs and playing time. He won’t even consider it.

Yeah, I know people like your manager.    But I’m definitely not that way.   I traveled a ton when my kids were small, and while I enjoyed many of the trips themselves, I really hated being away from my family so much.   Plus, I used up all my political capital with my wife.    It’s not like I could be on the road two weeks, come home and then say, “I’m going out to play poker with my buddies!”    No sir.

I remember going on a work trip for a week or so when my oldest was about a year old, my wife was pregnant with #2 and not enjoying it, and we were working on buying land for a house.  All the political capital was gone.  For a good while.

I was listening to 105.6. Haney said that the Orioles expecting Davis to be in Sarasota.

Said that they have placed demands on him this offseason. They didn’t elaborate on the changes.

Sounds like one final chance to prove himself next spring training. And there is a plan to hold Davis accountable and  just let him make up some story about working out with a hitting coach.

Or what they release him and have to pay him?

Pretty sure Davis can show up looking like Bro Thor and the O's can't do anything about it.

Well there is that too, but it would appear the Orioles are going to make one last good faith effort to see if Davis has anything left in the tank. I think it's a waste of time, and Davis at best is now a .200 hitter who might hit 20 home runs in 500 at bats.

I read it as The owners won't let Elias cut him so they are trying to get him to actually prepare for the season.

Give him another spring training to prove he is worthless and then cut him.

It's probably that, but getting Davis to put in max effort this offseason is going work out as well as herding cats.

I don’t. So that cancels us both out. Someone else will have to now make the pronouncement. 

 

BTW Brady has not been a VP since spring and is simply and advisor on strength and conditioning.

I advocated his position should be similarly that for a couple years. At the time, I thought even Head of Strength and Conditioning,. Or, whatever got him out of the baseball ops arena.

    • I know, I've seen that.  And that's a very positive thing in his favor.  But... it's also 42 games.  If a 42 game sample is representative it's a coincidence.
    • Fun fact: DJ Stewart had more walks (147) than strikeouts (117) in his college career. His Junior year he had a .500 OBP.
    • One of the interesting things about the Martin debate is that during the DD era, a lot os felt like the O’s players’ struck out too much and lacked plate discipline. Martin’s stats have been posted a number of times, but he seems to be what a lot of posters have wanted for years—a player with excellent plate discipline and good athleticism. Last year he had a .486 OBP with 40 walks and only 34 strikeouts.    Kiley McDaniel writes: Martin's calling card is his plus-plus contact skills and plate discipline, which help him get to all of his solid average raw power in games, for 15-20 homers most years. https://www.espn.com/mlb/insider/story/_/id/29251325/updated-2020-mlb-draft-rankings-latest-top-150-players Eric Longerhagen writes: He already had two traits that together make for a strong profile in that Martin is likely to play a premium position (though where exactly is up for debate, his arm was not great early in 2020 and he moved from 3B to CF) and has a plus-plus feel for the strike zone. He had more walks than strikeouts as a sophomore and started hitting for power late in that season, something his combination of selectivity and gorgeous, natural swing loft give him an excellent chance of doing in pro ball despite middling raw juice.  https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/the-board/2020-mlb-draft/summary?sort=-1,1&type=0 Keith Law also called Martin a plus runner with electric hands.  I’m certainly not saying he’s a sure thing and I’ve previously written that I won’t melt down if Gonzales is drafted, but it seems to me that this is the type of player a lot of people (myself included) have wanted on the O’s and I almost feel like the O’s would be overthinking it to go in a different direction (assuming Tork is drafted by Detroit, though I prefer Martin over Tork and will probably look incredibly stupid for saying that).

    • 5.8 rWAR and 6.2 fWAR in 2018 is not "only above average". He had an off year last year, worse than even his age 19 season on a per game basis, but he is still better than 50/50 to make the Hall. Shoo-in is a bit strong since injury or tragedy can strike anyone, but if he even has a few more seasons like 2013-18, he will be well on his way.
    • https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29255201/hall-famer-former-washington-bullets-star-wes-unseld-dies-age-74 Mods, please allow this to stay here, for a day or so, before moving it to its proper location. My favorite Bullet by far, and they had some good ones. Nobody and I mean nobody could play defensive center like he could and his inbound passes to his guards were legendary.  He was built solid too, guys did not push him around while fighting for under the basket terrority. He was a gentle and kind person, and not a diva in any shape or form. RIP
    • catching balls airborne in foul ground sidewalls and throwing a bullet to first while still airborne is super human feat.
