Resources are one thing...work ethic and discipline are another. 

You have decided because he didn't want to work on his swing he has no work ethic or discipline. I would say that points to ego/stubbornness or something else, not necessarily work ethic. If you say "I'm not doing that because I don't think it will help" that may be delusional but it doesn't mean poor work ethic. In any case, you can have work ethic in one thing and not another. Maybe he likes to lift and doesn't like hitting all that much anymore. If so it wouldn't be hard, with no job, to lift 5-7 times a week. It doesn't take 8 hours.

Compared to 2019 season:

Sorry but this was the first thing that came to mind.

But maybe that's a good thing. If it works he's productive. If he's caught he's gone.

I agree with this.

I have presented you with 5 articles, that present you with studies, info and facts.  They state that what I am saying is true.  You provide what you see in the gym.  I'm assuming you don't go to the performance centers for athletes, but places where people with real actual jobs and limited resources go.  

Every year I read about football players putting on 15-25 lbs of muscle.  Aside from your ignorance and lack of knowledge, there is nothing to be gained.  You are obviously standing your ground no matter what.  

None of the articles have any mention of scientific studies about muscle gain in body weight.  They are pretty much worthless opinion pieces.  The only thing even remotely fact related mentioned in the articles is this:  

“The Colgan Institute of Nutritional Sciences (located in San Diego, Calif.) run by Dr Michael Colgan PH.D., a leading sport nutritionist explains that in his extensive experience, the most muscle gain he or any of his colleagues have recorded over a year was 18 1/4 lbs. Dr Colgan goes on to state that "because of the limiting rate of turnover in the muscle cells it is impossible to grow more than an ounce of new muscle each day.”

So according to your own article you can’t gain more than a pound in 16 days.  And NFL players use HGH and steroids.  It is very common in fact. There is no Miracle that pro athletes have access to.  Most of this stuff comes down to genetics in gain rate.  Not super training facilities.

Sorry, but the fact that it took him three years to decide to get back closer to the physique he had when successful just makes me even angrier.  He's either an idiot, cheater, or delusional.  Maybe all three.  The getting leaner thing was also used by Pudge Rodriguez once upon a time. He was accused of being a steroid user and the next year lost a ton of weight and said he wanted to be leaner.  Not sure what Davis' true story is but there certainly are a lot of coincidences.

Not remotely funny.

 

33 years old. 25 lbs Of muscle in one off season. One prior PED suspension. Historically bad performance. The probability this happens is not zero. And it would save the Orioles a lot of money.

I see Davis mentioning it in a couple articles posted online, but still no definitive proof he really put on 25 pounds of muscle. The Orioles play their first exhibition game on Saturday so we'll be able to see for ourselves soon enough.  🤷‍♂️

I haven't seen anything from the O's saying he has.  The quote I saw was that he gained 25 pounds.

This is an interesting interview from a month ago in Pressbox with Davis talking about his off season training. Maybe it was just more than talk this time.

People are suspicious that Davis cheated to add the weight, but not suspicious about what did  Elias and Sig do in HOU?

That’s convenient.

Can you leave that fight in the appropriate thread? Some of us in this thread don’t have a dog in that one. 👍

I believe the ban was for an ADHD medicine that he had previously been approved for, that MLB changed their policy.

Are there other signs of Steroid use, like anger management, mood swings, etc?

What exactly did Elias and Sig do in Houston? Please explain.

He’s alluding to the Houston sign stealing thing.    Because it hadn’t been discussed enough here.

I thought MLB had punish the ones responsible. So I guess guilty by association?

I mean, he nearly attacked Brandon Hyde in the dugout, but I guess we're just willing to dismiss that as boys being boys.
