If Davis or Wieters are injured or underperform in 2015, do you think that makes it more or less likely that the O's re-sign them for 2016 and beyond?

I'm personally not sure about this one. On the one hand, I could still see a rich team like the Yanks or the Dodgers overpaying for either of them just because. But on the other hand, maybe not, and maybe their prices come down enough for the O's to re-sign them -- assuming they're willing to believe that they would improve in 2016.

Let me emphasize that I am not wishing for this to happen. Even if it means we lose both, I'd much rather see them have a healthy and productive 2015. Because if that happens, I believe it's overwhelmingly probable that the O's make the playoffs. Frankly unless the pitching completely implodes, I am hard-pressed to see the O's missing the playoffs if Davis and Wieters have good years.

I suspect that how they perform will determine only whether or not the O's make a qualifying offer. I don't expect either player to be back next season, though I think it makes sense for the O's and Wieters to negotiate a one-year extension now.

How does that make sense for Wieters?

In case he's not able to rack up many innings behind the plate this season, it would give him and opportunity to prove he's back while working with a staff he knows. Otherwise, he might have to take a 1-year deal with another team.

Matt will get a multi year deal with a team that over pays his production, no matter if he plays a healthy inning this season.

I hope they perform well. If not I suspect it's going to be a tough season. If they perform well I feel we will have a very good season. My guess though is if they perform well they will become overpaid and are far less likely to return. Even if they do not perform at a level that is high someone could still overpay and we could still lose them. I would rather see them perform extremely well and take the risk.

Their performance doesn't affect our chances at all, IMO. Which are near 0%.

If they perform or over perform we can't afford them.

If they underperform DD won't pay 10+ million on them.

I hate to be negative but NEITHER will be here next year. (unless they accept the QO)
