Why did Davis go after Hyde? He was not happy.

Less worried about that then I am about CD "being around the guys and getting a chance to kind of coach and teach". I don't think I want CD coaching or teaching anyone anything at any time.

My thoughts too. He needs to have a drastic and required breakdown and total revamping of his swing and a required supervised change in his workout regimen or be released.  And while his charitable contributions are all fine and good, he gets more publicity about it in local media than any Oriole I can remember.

Even if he did all of that how much of an improvement would we be looking at?

Not enough for him to be on the team.

If there were plans for Davis to be on the team next season, don’t you think they would be wanting him to get as many at bats as possible right now?

Quality versus Quantity

The quality of his at bats does not garner giving him a greater quantity.  IMO

I agree but I guess I would put a marker of expectations out there anyway, knowing he would likely not heed it.  It would bolster my argument to ownership as to cutting ties.

You’re just a hater. Hard to argue against you though.

Sounds like his role will be as an unofficial player-coach. 26th man on the team who pinch-hits and gets an occasional start while serving as assistant  infield coach. They could hide him that way next year. 2021 they probably need his spot.

I'm hoping it is a ploy to make him more amenable to a buyout.

Hope you're right, but I think his inflated sense of self-importance will have him clutching to any idea that suggests he provides some value.

If ownership somehow fails to see after the last 2 seasons he needs to be gone this off-season, I'm not sure what's left to say.

Davis can stare at betting tee for called strike three. Let the younger players get some reps.

Anyone else intrigued that Elias had a one on one with a player during the season?

Only insofar as it seems like Elias is definitely laying the ground work to end this situation. I would expect nothing else with a contract that large. Heck, if the article said John Angelos was sitting down with Davis, that wouldn't even surprise me. 

They're marginalizing his role. His time is coming and they're trying to handle it delicately.

"Mike (Elias, Orioles executive vice president/general manager) and I sat down several weeks ago and kind of went over a program that we both thought was going to be beneficial not only for me, but the Orioles and my teammates as well. I’ve enjoyed being around the guys and getting a chance to kind of coach and teach. Something that I didn’t really expect to do at this point in my career. But just like last night, we had a chance to maybe get a backdoor out with two outs and a guy at second base."

Is the program not him completely rebuilding his swing and body in the offseason?

Wow, $20M to be a student of the game. That is just sad.

The only programs that will be mutually beneficial to Davis and the team are a buyout or minor league assignment.
