Which part of Davis' contract is stupid?

Mostly the seven year part.

There's some chance that gene therapy could render aging irrelevant sometime in the next seven years.

Glad to keep his presence in the lineup, but I feel as if we were fleeced by Boras. Every time he hits one out, I'll say it's a good deal. Every time he strikes out with less than two out and men in scoring position, I'll feel otherwise.

Ok. Just looking for some discussion beyond stupid deal is stupid and DD is stupid for making it.

I will answer for myself, although Corn is right the seven year part is stupid. The long stretches of being an out in the middle of the lineup? Stupid. Paying a guy that much money for seven years when he is just as likely to hit .198 like 2014? Stupid. Paying a guy that much money when apparently there were no other suitors for his services? Stupid. Paying a guy that much money for seven years when the team needed help in the OF and on the mound? Stupid. But chicks dig the long ball, and so does PA.

I'm bumping this thread as a public service.     When the deal was done, a majority was in favor.    Only one in six was vehemently against it (you may now pat yourself on the bat if you're on that list).

I wasn't checking the boards at the time, but I'm pretty sure I was excited about it simply because I thought it was nice to see ownership open up the old pocket book, and I was, and still am (to some degree) a huge Crush fan.  Lesson learned.

Put this thread to rest and start one on how to get rid of him and his contract. I'm going to barf if Davis is still in Baltimore next season.

Well, I guess we could put a little arsenic in his Vyvanse.     Short of that, I don't see how you get rid of him without eating at least $70-80 mm.

For the record, just kidding about the arsenic.   Kind've in bad taste but I couldn't resist.

Well I was on that list (thank God) but it is no consolation to me. I agree with starting a thread with creative ways to move him elsewhere. Start with paying the deferred to get down to 5-$85 MM and take on a bad pitching contract. Who is out there that might rebound to be a better back end option than our current dregs?

Here's one, and there are probably others.
