Davis and Orioles Milestones


Aristotelian

Recommended Posts

With Davis now under contract with an at least limited no trade through all of his prime years, we have a once in a generation opportunity to see Chris put up some all time Orioles great stats.

Davis is currently sitting at 161 HR, #12 all time. He would need to average 38 HR over 7 years to surpass Cal at #1 with 443. Davis would likely have to have a couple of 50 HR seasons to compensate for the inevitable down years. However, Eddie is a distant second with 343 HR. Davis needs to average just over 26 HR to catch Eddie.

Davis is currently #34 with 425 career RBI. He would have to average 181 during this contract RBI to catch Cal at #1 with 1695. Brooks at 1357 and Eddie at 1224 would also seem to be out of reach as well. He would need to average 76 RBI to surpass Sisler and end up at #5 or 91 RBI to pass Boog.

On the downside, he is currently #12 in all time strikeouts. He is a cinch to average 73 K's a year and pass Cal and become the all time Orioles leader.

Any early bets on where he will end up?

Reggie Jackson (1976 Orioles), Ken Williams (1922 St. Louis Browns), and Chris Davis (2012 Orioles), all have had 6 consecutive games of hitting at least 1 home run.

Davis will have his chances to surpass that with his new 7-year contract.

How long until he is the most highly compensated Oriole?

He has the single-season record now (I believe.)

All depends on how it's structured. Jones is getting 16+ this year. It's possible that Davis' 2016 is less than that.

OK. Thanks for that info.

Just a couple corrections. Davis is 10th in O's history in homers, not 12th. Ken Williams and Harlond Clift were St. Louis Browns, who aren't included in Orioles franchise record-keeping purposes.

Similarly, Davis is 19th rather than 34th in RBIs.

I was going by the numbers on the Orioles All Time Leaders page on mlb.com.

http://baltimore.orioles.mlb.com/bal/history/all_time_leaders.jsp

He is currently #5 all time in SLG (.526), behind only Frank (#4, .543) and Williams, Goslin, and Manush (all with the Browns). Ahead of #6 Palmeiro (.520), #7 Gentile (.512), and somewhat of a surprise, #8 Baines (.502).

My brother was wondering about this. So it would take quite a bit for him to surpass Cal on the all time Homers list. We both realized that our franchise is pretty unique in that our all time HR's leader is a SS.

Ernie Banks, Cubs? I would guess that he is the Cubs all-time HR leader. Maybe Robin Yount, Brewers? Not sure if he is the Brewers all-time HR leader or not. I figure that he must be pretty high on their list.

OK- just googled it and Yount is the Brewers' all-time HR leader, but Sammy Sosa beat out Ernie Banks for the Cubs. Looks like Ripken and Yount are the only 2. Mike Schmidt filled in at SS a few times, I believe, but I don't think he was ever the starting SS for the Phils. Neither Ripken nor Yount (nor Banks, for that matter) played their whole career at SS.

Well Cal is also the all-time leading HR hitter from the SS position. A-Rod would have passed him were it not for his switch to 3B.

If I remember correctly, Ripken has 400+ career HR, but his SS record is in the high 300's.

Oh yeah not surprised he's the all time SS leader just that it's unique he's our franchise HR leader and a SS.

Thanks. Interesting stuff. Makes sense Yount would be the Crew's leader given like Cal he had a long career with them.
