Chris Davis did not know the Orioles had Offered an Extension?

So imagine being CD and spouting how much you love the town and want to be here long term...only to find out an extension offer was made, but Boras never told you.

This is a tough one for me. If Davis wants to be here long term, then Boras is likely the wrong agent. Boras is the type to scoff at an extension like Jones or Markakis got, though Davis may find such fair.

According to our resident baseball expert this couldn't have happened. Boras would never do such a thing. Chris had to have known, and was just blowing off Roch to avoid discussing contract issues.

So, if that is true, I assume we'll see Davis firing Boras in the coming week? I mean, you can't stay with an agent if he is so directly working at cross-purposes with your best interests, right?

Thus sayeth our resident baseball expert. Move along nothing to see here.

Or the Orioles contract extension number was so low that Boras would never take it to his client. Token extension offers are not serious offers.

Extent of "discussion"....

Boras: "This is the Scott Boras agency. Please leave your message at the tone." DD: "Hello, Scott, this is Dan. What kind of home town discount can we expect?"

Dan didn't say when he talked extension with Boras. It may not have been recently. Could have been last season. Davis said he knew there was some discussion last season but nothing came of it. Dan's reference was vague.

I think serious conversion will occur between Boras and Dan later this month. Chris will know about it. First Dan has be sign a couple of pitchers and sign Wieters to a one year contract. Then the focus turns to Davis and Hardy's extensions.

Hardy we'll sign to a 3/45 type deal. The end of the contract will probably end up like Mora and Roberts and Kakes before him, but, I like JJ and would be happy with an extension.

Davis is likely going to be a 150 million player, and Angelos nor the Orioles have ever shown me a willingness to pay this for anyone. I think the odds of Davis being an Oriole long term are at about 10%, especially after listening to Dan repeatedly talk about the "market size" yesterday.

Sign them or trade them. Not much choice.

I thought Dan was pretty specific that they had put a long term offer on the table but nothing had come of it. As opposed to Wieters where he said there had been "discussions" the last two springs that hadn't led anywhere.

I find it interesting that Hardy also didn't seem to know that the O's were interested in discussing an extension or when those discussions would occur. http://www.masnsports.com/steve_melewski/2014/02/jj-hardy-says-he-hasnt-yet-discussed-extension-with-os.html Duquette has been pretty clear about wanting to extend Hardy.

Hardy knows the O's are interested. The negotiation just hasn't happened yet. I though it was significant that Manny wanted to stay a 3rd and Buck made the point that he wants Hardy to stay at SS. This may slow down the talk of Manny moving to SS. But some will never give up on it.

You were at the 10:30 session with Dan and Buck. I was not. I will defer to you on that one as it relates to what was said of the offer to Davis. I saw the 2nd session.

I was there as well. I think you captured the tone and the intent very well.

@Jim_Duquette: "If Chris Davis has another year like he did this past year, he's going to make north of $175 million" #Orioles

I said 6/140 or 7/160 yesterday.

And I don't think Davis needs to hit 50 plus HR like he did last year. If he has anywhere close he will get huge money.

    • Because you can’t see the obvious.  There’s no reason to talk to you. You aren’t a genuine person to discuss things with.  It’s easier to just laugh at you.
    • I agree, but ideally Henderson stays at third while we sign Turner to play short (hoping we have a shot since he may prefer east coast). Turner, Mullins, Henderson is a nice top 3. 
    • Elias has put together the Core that he hopes will carry the O's to a World Series.   Some of us are trying to trade this core away but I don't think Elias will. Who is the Core: 1.1 Catcher Adley Rutschman (24) 2nd rounder SS/3B  Gunnar Henderson (21) 1st rounder LF  Colton Cowser  (22) - sometime in 2023  30th pick  Jordan Westburg (23) -  2B/3B/1B to start 2023  1st rounder 1B Ryan Mountcastle (25) - Drafted by Duquette  2nd rounder  RF  Kyle Stowers  (24) 4th rounder  2B/SS/3B   Joey Ortiz   (24) -sometime in 2023 2nd rounder  DH/2B  Connor Norby (22) - sometime in 2023 1.1   Jackson Holliday  SS/CF (18)  -  In 2025 1st  rounder  Grayson Rodriguez SP (22) - Start of 2023 1st rounder  DL Hall (24)  -  Sometime as a starter in 2023 Dean Kremer (26)   Kyle Bradish (26) Felix Bautista (27) Cionel Perez (26) These are the  players that the O's are building around.  Not trading.   Sure there are players needed to supplement these guys. And not all of them will make it but this is the direction I think they are headed. They don't have a player that can replace CF Cedric Mullins yet but as these players make the majors the current players will be traded to resupply the minors.  To start 2023 they will need Santander and Hays until the core players are ready. This does not mean that players, especially pitchers, can not be added to fill in where needed.  I just don't think these core players are likely to be traded. JMO          
    • You're right, this must be a series that was originally scheduled for the first week. Teams with open-air stadiums, like the Orioles, typically schedule their opening series for three games in four days, with an off-date between the first and second games.  This is so that if there's a rainout on the original date of Opening Day, fans who bought tickets for Opening Day can use them when the game is made up on the next day. The Mariners, who didn't have to worry about a rainout, were free to schedule four games in  four days, so apparently that's what they did.  And with that series having been postponed due to the labor dispute, now they only have three days to get those four games in. Ironically, the fact that they have a roof on their stadium is a big part of the reason why they have to play a doubleheader now.
    • Offensively, it would be hard not too.  Everyone who has seen Ortiz play defense, says he’s plus at SS.   Nothing’s guaranteed. Mateo could be better or worse next year. I’d bet on Ortiz over Mateo at SS if that was the choice.  However, everything depends on the plan for Henderson.   If it’s SS all bets are off.
    • All of the games played this week were originally scheduled for the first week of the season which was locked out. If it was a inter-division matchup where they only visit each other once per year, they didn't have much choice other than a doubleheader or extending the season for a few teams an extra day. (Yankees and Rangers are also in a DH today, in Texas where there's a dome.) Seattle shouldn't put much strain on their top pitchers. They can't catch Toronto for home field so they're on the road for the WC series either way, and it might be a better matchup facing #3 Cleveland than #4 Toronto.  If I were a Mariner fan I'd be kinda hoping for TB to pass them for seed 5.
