Yes, OWKNOWS,  Chris does not report to you, me, or any of the so called baseball experts on this board.  He already has done more for Baltimore baseball and  the city/state than  anyone could have dreamed he would  after we signed him.  He may strike out every at bat this year, I do not know, but as long as he is on the Orioles roster, I for one will respect him.  Criticize him, maybe, but always respect him, and  not  talk  gutter language when commenting about his play or community service.    

OK, find me one post of anyone using "gutter language" when talking about his community service.

I don't remember anyone saying anything bad about what Davis has done for the community.

I think you're making stuff up.

I actually witnessed Davis illegally dumping used mattresses, motor oil, tires and needles in a back alley in West Baltimore

But was it during a community service event?

Didn't think so.

It's early spring training. No need to jump to nasty conclusions.

What would a DH need to hit to have a 7WAR season? Has it been done?

Edgar Martinez played 138 games at DH in 1995 and put up a 7.0 WAR season.  He had a 185 OPS+.  Frank Thomas had a year over seven in '97 but played less than 50 games at DH.

Well until Elias finds a trade partner for Davis if he really plays at that level. 

I'm not sure he could, even if he plays at that level.  I think teams would be so scared that it's a hot streak and that he could regress to the level of the previous few seasons.  The stank on those seasons is so bad, it's easy to believe that any good performance this year couldn't be seen as anything else other than a fluke.

Maybe by the ASB....in 2021.

    • People (including me) have been focused on losing that spot for Rule 5 protection if we retain Davis this winter, but it also impacts us every time we make a waiver claim and have to DFA someone to open up a spot for the claimed player.    
    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
