Cards Interested in Davis - FOX Sports

Recommended Posts

"The St. Louis Cardinals are interested in free agent Chris Davis and have had discussions in recent weeks with his agent, Scott Boras, according to major-league sources.

The Cardinals, sources say, are intrigued by Davis' ability to play first base, third base, right field and left field. He started games at all four of those positions during his tenure (2011-15) with the Baltimore Orioles.

The Cardinals are looking for offense after scoring 647 runs (24th in the majors) this past season -- their second-lowest output over the past two decades

DD has had plenty of time to get this done. It will be a punch in the gut if he doesn't

make it happen. It will follow with all his usual excuses and it will temper the Winter

Meetings along with FA signings and trades. This could possibly result in a pathetic

lineup for 2016.The usual from DD and could show that this team needs a younger

energetic GM.

They have been trying to extend Davis for the past two seasons. Boras didn't want to talk. It takes two to tango.

I have seen lots of sites (e.g Cameron on Fangraphs) say Davis is most likely to be an overpaid bust. It will be interesting if the best front office in baseball disagrees.

Honestly, the comps that I keep seeing for Davis seem to underrate his athleticism. He is a big guy, but is far from a comp to Ortiz or Howard. People keep acting like he will be a statue in the field.

The O's saw this happen when Cruz left last year. You can't replace these guy's with

a AA or AAA talent and ship them back and forth. How do you replace fifty home runs

and expect to repeat. Do you want to win or just maybe make a first round wildcard.

You can't expect to win if you don't keep your talent and go dig in a dumpster.

Maybe if Davis hadn't been suspended they would have won in 2014.

If you're the Orioles, and you have good, inexpensive players on your team, you can't keep most of them as they get expensive.
