Meh...Is he an upgrade anywhere?

He's decently effective against right-handers (.247/.360/.405/.765) but like others have said, I don't see him as an upgrade anywhere.

He's also pretty slow on the base-paths. I suspect that the Orioles do not want to acquire another slow player for the squad in 2015, unless he has at least one or two other HUGE upsides .... which I don't believe that Davis has.

I sure hope we do. Good OBP guy who can play as part of a DH platoon if Cruz leaves.

Ike Davis is a good OBP guy? I guess it's ok, .336 for his career. But for a first baseman with Nick Markakis' power the last couple years? The O's already have a first baseman trying to have a comeback season. I'm not sure two does anything for them.

I doubt it'll take anything more than a minor league deal or almost minimum contract to get him on board. I'd give him a chance, since he'd have more potential than most of those depth signings that Duquette does.

    • Why would they? What's in it for them?
    • Would the O's and the Jays both have to agree to play on Thursday? I'm not sure they would agree to it.
    • I bet tomorrow the 5 sitting today will start   Chirinos  C  Nevin  3rd Odor  2nd  Stowers  RF Mountcastle   1B    Two of this bunch sits  * my guess* Adley Gunnar  Mullins  Hays * Mateo * Santander    Will not start plus 2 from above Aguilar  Vavra McKenna 
    • 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.
