The Time to Make a Decision on Chris Davis is Now

Might as well just jump off a cliff now. I'm confident we'll have a competitive team next season, even if a lot of the names are new.

I think you are right.

If the team is competitive under Buck, then I believe they can work out a deal with AJ.

I agree. I'm prepared for a very different roster in 2016. I expect only two or three of our FAs to return. We still have a good base, but the name power of the players will take a decent hit and that will unsettle a lot of fans.

Just curious, how many noteworthy Scott Boras free agents have we signed in the past? I'm struggling to remember any.

Look at the track history of all the other Boras clients.

I say we don't just give up, I say give fair offers to those who we want to keep. If fair offers are rejected, so be it. Offering costs us nothing and may even be beneficial for the performance this year or give us a chance in the offseason.

Sad to say the business side of things, you will rarely see a player drafted by a team, get promoted by that team, and finish his pro career with that team.

I doubt DD will give up, but don't expect DD to shake at his knees and cave into Boras either.

"Only" two or three? I would be shocked if we re-sign more than one. I am fine with rebuilding, it is the Oriole Way.

I think Pearce and O'Day are decent possibilities to return. Hunter could return too (not that I'd be pumped up about that). I assume De Aza and Matusz are near locks to go elsewhere, for different reasons. I think all three Boras guys are gone. Norris will probably cost too much as well. Yeah, hard to imagine three or more of those guys, and one or two is most likely.

Wieters and Davis are long gone. Their extensions would have been signed by now.

I'm not surprised by Wieters leaving, he's overpaid and I see Joseph as better. Davis though, I would have thought would put the team and the city above going to a strange place and making a few million more. But a lot of young guys shut off their brains and their agents make all the life decisions for them.

I thought Davis was smarter than that. Guess I was wrong.

I don't think the Orioles are chomping at the bit to sign Davis to a long-term deal. Machado yes, Davis not so much. I expect the O's to give Davis a qualifying offer, go through the motions of "light" negotiating, and then watch Davis sign with another team.

    • We're going to get bomb today. Irvin, need I say more?
    • Did most people miss the words elite and controlled in the title? Surprised at how easily so many people said no, when I thought the bullpen was a consensus weakness of this team. I like Kjerstad too and you don't trade him for just anyone. But if you can get a difference making 8th/9th inning guy, who isn't a rental, that seems worth considering. 
    • No problem. Like I said I think Mike is open minded. Big difference obviously from shagging pre game to playing in games. Said Mayo is working on OF behind the scenes.

    • He didn’t cover that. Just said he responded well to the injection. Said in January he felt weird sensation ramping up. He felt like at time he could throw threw it. Credited rest and staff working with him. Build him back slowly in minors.    I enjoy listening to Front Office show and with Sirius app can go back and listen. 
    • I saw he was just put on the IL for a knee sprain. I hope it's not serious.
