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.

    • LOL sounds like a former employee still on the dole!  😁
    • I forgot about the bad bunt - 2x on base is awesome and scary.  Didn't Dylan Bundy pull a hammy a few years back going from first to third?  Zack Britton hit one out if I recall.  Dang!  I keep digressing.  I might get besmirched again at this late date!  @Ruzious
    • I was there on Lavor Day.  Looked great to me. Even better than Nats Park which lacked character. 
    • It affected guys like Koufax, Kaline and Killebrew.   Overall about 60 players over 19 years.  An explanation and a list here: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/legendary/Bonus_Babies.shtml
    • Great.   They have done a good job of keeping up on things.
    • Is it showing real signs of age and does it need significant repairs? It still looks good on TV, but so doesn’t Fenway and I’ve heard stories about that place.    I ask because even though Camden isn’t ancient, it’s not new anymore. 
    • Man this thread has turned into something. I won't bother quoting everyone but wanted to share a few reactions I had while reading. 1. Matt Boyd 2018-2019 is not a worthy comparison of John Means because John Means is a much better pitcher. Any trade discussion should start from the fact that we would be trading a 28 year old cheap, controllably pitcher who is approaching 350 innings now at nearly LESS than 1.00 WHIP, ERA less than 3.60. And yes the Bedard haul is a reasonable comparison. To hell with the peripherals that don't like him. Watch him pitch. FIP says that John Means and Matt Harvey have been the same pitcher this year. He has excellent control/command with a knack for avoiding hard contact. Why is a .230 BABIP concerning when his career BABIP is .244? So any trade should be valuing him at the nearly top of the rotation talent he has been, and the not the back of the rotation the advanced metrics say he is. If not? Sorry. 2. Let's put to rest any discussion Austin Hays is a platoon player. He's our 2nd best position player. There's no concerning career splits and any O's fan should want him in the outfield everyday.  3. Ryan McKenna has played his role well for a rookie and I've become more fond of him as the season went along. Short sample size but his 11 homers and 7 steals in 27 games at Norfolk were eye opening. He's in excellent shape, hustles, is a fantastic defender, has displayed a good batting eye, and it's way too early to give up on his bat.  4. Regarding Trey Mancini and Anthony Santander's trade value, I'm not sure there is much. We are looking at a 0.9 and 0.3 B-Ref WAR players. Decent bats who have seen better days and don't provide much else. Renato Nunez provided 2.6 WAR and a 107 OPS+ in less than 2 normal seasons and was DFA'd in his first arbitration year. I want both Mancini and Santander back but let's not kid ourselves that we would be getting back a high quality package for these players.  5. I think people tend to gloss over how beneficial it is to have real major league pitchers in the majors while our prospects are developing. I'm all for tanking and not spending everything we have for a 70 win team, but without pitchers like John Means, games turn into exhaustive bullpen games, pitchers get overworked, and your prospects get yanked around or rushed. So Yeah I don't think John Means is not leading us to contention in 2022 but he is still a valuable part of the rebuild. He is not wasted value/talent whatsoever.  6. The "terrible in 2022, .500 team in 2023, and contender in 2024" timelines are pretty ridiculous. Nobody knows when it will all come together. But I do believe success breeds success, and things tend to work out or not work out in clusters. And outside additions will come. We do not have to and will not home grow this entire team.
