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.

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...

    • Currently, the pitching staff is 14th in WAR (in the majors), 10th best in walk rate, 17th in total ERA and 7th in BP ERA. Nice numbers considering we apparently have the worst catchers in baseball.  I’m shocked that they could be this awful defensively, game calling, framing, etc...and yet we are finding some early success after building on last year, which wasn’t as bad as suspected. It’s almost as if the catchers defense can be overcome by other factors! (Or people are just clueless as to how to actually judge a C defense)
    • The issue is that you are intentionally taking the GMs statement that the Os are not measuring success by wins as meaning something else....that the Orioles are not trying to win games. And then extrapolating that into the Orioles are trying to lose games.    That simply isn’t what is going on. And I think you know that. I think in general folks are on board with the rebuild. We are also at the point where we are about as far from being competitive as we have been in a long time.      I don’t know how much the pandemic has effected the rebuild, but minor leagues have been shut down for a loooong time.  I can’t help but think it probably cost us a full year.    I don’t know if Hyde will be the manager in 2 months or 2 years.  I really don’t worry about that at all. Right now, I just want to see the Os get better and develop talent.    I would say this is the last year the Os can continue with a mindset of we are not measuring success with wins. I think it is likely that success next year will be marked by small improvement to something along the lines of 75-80 wins.    I am trying to enjoy the moments.    The moments Mancini reminds us of what he can be. The moments Mountcastle reminds us that he could be in the mix for ROY. The moments John Means looks like a real #1 or #2. And yes the moment we get to see AR, Diaz and others crack the lineup.    It’s not the same as fretting over when Hyde rests Santander or who he pitches in the 8th or 9th. But this ain’t Toronto and whether or not we use our historically good closer in the 6th, 11th or ever. Hyde is gonna learn or he won’t. In the end, of the GM gets the talent part, getting someone to manage will be a breeze. 
    • Personally, I'm surprised Sisco didn't get charged with a PB.  He has looked bad this year.
    • Yea, to think some people actually bought the idea that no outside food had to do with covid.
    • I’m not going until I don’t have to wear a mask outside. MASN will do just fine until this mess is over and people aren’t ratting others out for mask vs. no mask.
    • Yeah, hard to see how there could be an instinct (in any useful definition of the term) for a heavily rule-regulated game like baseball. I think the "feel," "knack," etc. for a sport arises from early inculcation and many years of repetition, coaching, and emulation. Even "tools," though necessary and closer to what one might consider innate abilities, can't provide that. In fact, I think that there are just as many times that a "hunch" (the closest I can come at the moment to defining instinct) leads to bad results as good ones, e.g. trying to take an extra base or steal one at the wrong time or in the wrong game situation or all sorts of guesses, such as what type of pitch will be thrown or where a ball is going to be hit, when not based in study or prep. Sometimes a manager's role is to rein in what the player's "instinct" is, such as when a pitcher is convinced they can go longer, but actually should be taken out.
    • April 18, following series win vs Ranger: Win Div: 0.0% Win Wild Card 0.0% Make Playoffs 0.0% It was fun while it lasted, there is now zero chance.
