Davis is definitley jacked this year...

Recommended Posts

All this means is that Davis will now be able to break a bat across his abdomen instead of his quad when he strikes out looking in his fourth straight at-bat.  That is, assuming, he also worked on his lats.

Maybe Davis should go up there without a bat. That might confuse the pitchers. As he doesn’t hit the balls in over 51 percent of his at bats does he really need a bat?

Or smash the bat into the ground if he gets hit by a pitch.

.25 a week is 1 pound of muscle a month for long term lifters, which I previously posted in here.

.5 is possibly doable on the max end for newb gains, which Davis is not.

He gained 5-6 pounds of muscle if we're being generous. I would guess he "supplemented" so bump that number up slightly.

https://www.menshealth.com/fitness/a26239086/how-much-muscle-you-can-gain-month/

"In one study from the University of Central Missouri, experienced lifters gained an average of 2.18 to 2.33 pounds of muscle over the course of an eight-week training program—not as much as you might expect from a newbie just hitting the gym."

It’s called hyperbole. Obviously he didn’t add 25lbs of muscle. He added 25lbs and he looks pretty ripped. That is very possible to do in 25 weeks.

Just for fun....what's our upside if Davis hits .250 with 45 homers?  No comments on likelihood please.  Offense could be pretty good.

Looks like Davis has his walking muscles warmed up already this spring. If he can keep his walk rate on par with his career I'll take a .250 avg in a heartbeat. Heck even .230 if he could get back into 30 dinger territory.

A positive drug screen test.

After talking with people it seems like Davis really has turned a corner. 
 

Not only did he alter what size bat he is using, he was able to generate more bat speed with the help of the O’s and the Blast Technology this winter. 
 

Time will tell it it leads to better results and exit velo...

    • Wasn't the thought that Gunnar would move to third base if needed, not second?
    • #50THANNIVERSARY As the Baltimore Orioles entered the day on August 1st, they had a record of 64-39.  The Birds were in first place in the AL East, 6.5 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers.  They were 0.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins (62-36) for the AL's best record. During the month of July the Orioles had a 17-11 record.
    • I never said Bleier was as good as O'Day.  O'Day would come in with runners on base and no one out and not allow a run.  He was excellent.  And O'Day had strikeout stuff.   Bleier pitched to contact.   He could pitch two or three innings and pitch very well but would not come in the situations that O'Day did.   However Bleier was very consistent when healthy and pitched to just below a 2,00 ERA.   There are not many pitchers that did better than he did during that period.  He would take a lockdown, strikeout pitcher to be better.    He certainly looks like he is back to his old form at this point.
    • You're not going to have a team full of top end players at every positon. He looks like he could be a quality player. Gunnar isn't going to be ready for several year, and who knows if he even works out. Prospects are super volatile. If Alberto can continue to be an average to slightly above average or better player I'd love for him to be a long term piece until he gets pushed out.
    • OPACY has fantastic drainage.     But it will be challenging.   3.5 - 4.5 inches of rain expected from Monday night through Tuesday afternoon.      
    • Not sure I follow this logic.    Why is Verlander’s contract “extreme?”     There are several batters who have bigger contacts.    It is an unusual year when the best pitcher has more value than the best hitter, measured by Wins Above Replacement, which by definition takes into account how hard it is to develop players above replacement value. In fact, the more I think of it, the less logic there is to your argument.   An argument that makes more sense to me is that more pitchers are lost to injury, so you have to draft more of them to account for the attrition.     
    • o   One thing at a time, Scott ...... you can't win 7 in a row until you win 5 or 6 in a row. And you can't win 5 in a row until you win 4 in a row. Let's win tomorrow, and get the 4th.   o
