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...

    • MLB teams are not allowed to announce positive tests of players for legal (HIPAA) reasons. They do announce when they put guys on the Covid disabled list, as the Phillies did yesterday with 4 guys including Tommy Hunter.  Technically that is not proof the guys tested positive because you can go on the C-19 list if you are positive, if you have symptoms and are awaiting testing/test results, or if you have been exposed to someone who has it. You could also find out if a player has it if he announces it himself on social media or whatever. But the team can't come out and say it.
    • I’m pretty sure they are family members as well.
    • “The reality is we weren’t going to play more than 60 games, no matter how the negotiation with the players went, or any other factor,"  That comment trumps the other comments. He’s saying that “regardless of the negotiations” Well then, why have negotiations? Why not say, “we’re only gonna have 60 games and we’re going to start in July” Why waste so much time on posturing that, according to Manfred himself, was useless?  That’s why I asked the lawyers in the crowd For their thoughts. Spirit of 66 is not a lawyer, but his comment was very cogent
    • Yes... probably mostly bad in Florida. Plus they tend to want pimento and other stuff in the south. I was in Georgia for a while and a pretty high profile place with several locations called Ray’s had a pretty good quality cake, but it had chopped pepper in it and served it with a garlic aioli. They had Old Bay in the kitchen so you could request it. But I don’t believe it was in their recipe. If you ever get through Atlanta look them up!
    • Boarman's Market in Highland often has some good ones in their butcher/seafood section.  Great place, this old fashioned farmers market / grocer with hand painted signs in an area of HoCo that was once all farms but is now full of neighborhoods with million dollar houses.  But Boarman's hasn't changed. I'll swing by there on a Friday onmy way to Blacksburg for a football weekend and pick up a pound of their fresh made daily breakfast sausage for us to have at our tailgate the next day.  Got a dozen crabcakes there once and we grilled them at our tailgate the next day and they were fantastic.
    • Timbuktu’s are good but they prices have skyrocketed.  The the Olive Grove which is right up the street from G&M.   They are comparable to G&M in size and lump meat but have a little more zing to them.
    • I ordered crab cakes in Columbus Ohio once and I can’t recommend any more highly to never do that. They were about the size of a quarter and we’re pretty inedible. I had some good crab cakes at Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park in Maine a few times.
