No reason for this team to pay a 33 year-old reliever more than the minimum.
Best case scenario the O's will be competitive in 2022 at which point Bleier will be 35 and in his third and final year of arbitration and thus unlikely to have any surplus value.
The pizza oven isn't quite finished, still have some red brick to go on the outside of the cinderblock base. But it's functionally done, so I'm running up a fire to do some test pizzas tonight. Currently the back wall is hotter than my infrared thermometer will measure (~900 F?) so I think we'll be good to go in a half hour or so.
I thought it was interesting that Nathan Ruiz reported in the Sun today that Davis had been out with "what he said was a sinus infection." It was almost as if Ruiz was signaling that he didn't believe that explanation.
I'd prefer to play Mountcastle at 1B. Playing Davis at all is crazy - he's been the single worst player in MLB the last 2 or 3 years - setting all kinds of records for putridity. That's a thing - because of Chris Davis.
