Chris Davis left camp this morning after coming down with the same illness.

“Not feeling well this morning,” Hyde said. “Hopefully, it’s not too long. But the thing’s kind of going around a little bit and he didn’t feel well, and so we got him checked out and sent him back.”

I'm not so sure that a .175 hitter has ever gotten so much attention before.  I'm aware I've posted several times on here about Davis but....so have a lot of you.  I'm part of the problem, I freely admit it.  

Quite frankly, I don't care how he got bigger, etc.  If he feels it helps, I hope that's what he needs to feel better at the plate.  I'm just kinda tired of obsessing over Davis...only really care if he retires or gets cut.  Anything else is an annoyance, really.

You spelled money wrong.   It's m-o-n-e-y, not  a-t-t-e-n-t-i-o-n

This actually depends.  A bigger guy like Davis with a bigger frame could. I'm sure he hired a full time trainer and food specialist.  He already had the mass, just needed to convert it.  Now if he had a smaller frame and big growth, ala Barry Bonds, I'd say...yeah. Also, if he was looking into retiring he probably wasn't working out as hard. 

I have an XXL frame and am inch shorter than Davis. I could probably add 25 pounds in a few months if I followed a beer and pizza diet.  But I don’t think 25 pounds of muscle is anyway possible.

If you don't take the bat off your shoulder it doesn't matter if it's lighter.

I'm not sure I'm following you. The weight of the bat makes a big difference for whether you can get the bat off your shoulder in time. When players can't, they don't swing.

A lighter bat isn't going to help when he takes a center-center strike three.

To be fair, the bug has hit several of the players.

Exactly, I think they are doing this with any player showing the signs of illness.

Seams like it happens just about every spring camp.

Flu season still going strong, and combine that with all those players traveling to Florida and being around each other it's a recipe for getting sick. Better now than closer to the end of March.

Most .175 hitters don't get paid $23M per season.

    • If Mayo was a first round pick he'd be easy on top 100 lists. Remember, these guy don't watch all these guys, they can't. They look at drafted status, bonus, and then stats. Take all these top 100 lists with a huge grain of salt.
    • Sparks finished the Aberdeen portion of his season at .240/.336/.404 in 119 PA, after slashing .256/.344/.388 at Delmarva in 183 PA.   Not spectacular, but enough to keep him in the organization next year I suspect.   Will be interesting to see if they keep him at Aberdeen or push him to Bowie.   
    • I question your 2nd paragraph.   If Georgia becomes owner with John as Orioles Executive he has already been officially name to running the team.   He has been involved with the team through he 2012-2016 period where they won more games than any team in the League.   That is a measure of success.  John has also managed MASN. As far as the MASN lawsuit with MLB.  This sounds like a good reason to settle the issue without the Angelos Suing MLB yet again for not allowing them to continue as owners.  
    • Well, you have to have the desire to keep it and there are issues with that.
    • Why are you and Frobby poo pooing Mountcastle's accomplishment? Did I miss where anyone claimed Mountcastle was better than Ripken or that his accomplishment was better than when Ripken made the record?  He broke it, congrats to him. How this turned into people poo pooing the young man's accomplishment is beyond me.
    • From David Laurila’s Sunday column: Ryan McKenna grew up in Maine and attended high school in New Hampshire, so playing at Fenway Park is an especially big thrill. Doubling off of Chris Sale in his first-ever start at the historic ballpark, which he did on August 14, was therefore a moment he won’t soon forget. I asked the Baltimore Orioles rookie outfielder about it on Friday. “He got me the first time, but I thought I saw him pretty well,” recalled McKenna, who chose humility over bravado when addressing the subject. “He’s got such a deceptive angle to his pitches, because he’s so far on the left side, so I was just trying to take it pitch-by-pitch and hoping to get one over the plate. I was trying to stay positive.” Fair enough. But just how cool was it to get an extra-base knock off a pitcher of Sale’s caliber, and do so at Fenway Park? “Very cool,” admitted the 24-year-old McKenna, who had a number of family and friends on hand that afternoon. “It’s a testament to a lot of hard work, and there’s a long road ahead, for sure. But yeah, it was pretty cool to get one off of him.” Where did it rank among the biggest moments of his young career? “Pretty high,” said McKenna. “My first home run and my first hit are No. 1 and No. 2. My first hit was actually against Boston, at Camden Yards, and my first homer was against Washington. The hit against Sale, here at Fenway, is probably No. 3.” https://blogs.fangraphs.com/sunday-notes-twins-prospect-louie-varland-is-a-st-paul-sibling-on-the-rise/
