Could Davis Be the One Traded?

Davis could put up a 15 HR month. Davis could single handedly carry us in a playoff series. You don't trade that. Especially with the AL being wide open. I'd rather have the value he provides the rest of the year plus the comp pick more than any trade package we would get.

Chris Davis won't be traded when they are 1 game out of first place. Unless the deal is just too good to pass up

I wouldn't say never. The deal would have to be a good one. But if the Os go back to under .500 in the coming weeks, that could swing Davis onto the trading block. But if remain in division contention (or crawl into the lead), we won't be unloading Crush.

Within 5 games of the Wild Card at the All Star Break means you are not a seller. Unless you are Oakland or Tampa. Bay.

I'd consider trading Davis in a package if it would bring back a potential TOR under control for a few years.

Yea, and I don't necessarily see that happening. We would have to be getting back a MAJOR piece. Otherwise, I think such a trade could be a huge mistake from a human element standpoint. Not sure Jones/Manny would be very happy about the mindset of the org re: "going for it" with Davis being dealt in a playoff race.

I still have a soft spot for Davis, I hope he doesn't get traded. Even though the likelihood of it happening, I still have some hope that he goes on a tear like he did a few years ago. I think it's safe to say that he'll never approach those heights again but man, that was a fun summer.

This is why he can't be traded. Everyone agrees that he's going to get over paid. But to get a bat like him, during the trade season, would be impossible. Last year we made the ALCS without MW, Machado and Davis. Let that sink in.

Several contending teams traded Major League talent for Major League talent last trade deadline period. I don't think it's right to just assume that if Davis is traded it will most likely be for prospects.

I could definitely see Davis being traded to a team for SP. The Cardinals could use a better version of Mark Reynolds (their current stopgap for Matt Adams). Someone like Michael Wacha might be a possibility.

    • Yeah I was hopeful for him but after seeing last night (where it all caught up to him) I just don't think he has the stuff any more. He used to have an excellent 2 seamer with good velocity and arm side run but that doesn't seem to exist anymore with the velocity drop.
    • Well I was just a peon when I worked there, so it’s not like that experience mattered in my decision. And my view on extensions isn’t you are paying for past years. Hell, I would sign Holliday today and Gunnar is only a year into things. The issue with the extensions is that you are already have the player(s) locked up for most of the years anyway. So, when you sign them to an extension, you are guaranteeing 7-9 years but really all you are gaining is 2-3 years.  It’s a lot of money and guarantees for only a few years. Now, the one thing that I have talked about that is important here is if you don’t extend them, do you look to trade them 1-2 years away from free agency because you don’t want to lose a talent like Gunnar, for example, for nothing.  So, maybe the extension buys you a few additional years on top of what are already getting.  OTOH, you may just decide to go for it with the player and lose them for nothing. I guess you always have the option of going the Tatis route and go 14-15 years but I’m not sure of anyone who is advocating for that or would be ok with that.  As for your business decision point here..I think that’s probably the biggest reason you do it…because players like the commitment and the fans like the commitment and there is value to that.
    • Honestly, I’m much more concerned about Tate than Akin.   91.7 mph avg velocity on the sinker. 11.4% K rate. 11.4% BB rate. 91.8 mph exit velocity. 53.8% hard hit rate. 9.8% whiff rate. 14.5% chase rate. 3.8% swinging strike rate. 4.50 ERA. 5.70 FIP. 5.49 xFIP. 5.06 SIERRA.  6.30 xERA. 84 stuff+ on sinker. 88 location+ on sinker. The ground ball rate is still good, but I’m not sure that’s going to be enough to save him.    
    • Facing Ragans today. Must starts include Rutschman, Mountcastle, and McCann. Must sit is Holliday.   I think Adley might DH today unless Burnes insists on him catching his stuff.
    • Ben McDonald mentioned the leg kick maybe not working in the MLB. He is going to have to make an adjustment it seems like.  Just way too many swings and misses. 
    • I thought you were mistaken on the silver slugger award. I had to look it up. That was a very low bar and he benefited greatly by being in the utility category.  Gunnar is a special player and I would sign him to an extension as the primary goal. Obviously I would have all three on the team as long as they could, though. 
    • First hit was a good pitch on the outside corner maybe not a strike.   Second hit wasn’t that bad of a pitch either.
