Orioles' put priority on retaining Davis, improving pitching

BALTIMORE (AP) Seeking an encore to their appearance in the AL Championship Series, the Baltimore Orioles sputtered through a .500 season primarily because they couldn't replace stars lost to free agency and received sub-par performances from several of the 2014 standouts. Baltimore won the AL East with a 96-66 record last year. Over the winter, major league home run leader Nelson...

Chris Davis: Comeback Player of the Year?

Earlier this year, I penned a post evaluating Chris Davis as an American League MVP candidate. The Baltimore Orioles were still holding tenuously to a playoff berth at the time. A dreadful late-August to early-September slump, however, torpedoed the chances of both of those things happening. Chris Davis will not win the MVP, although he should get a few votes, and the Orioles will...

Mookie Betts nearly falls over Fenway wall to save shutout

Rich Hill of the Boston Red Sox threw his second career complete game shutout on Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles, but his sphincter had to be clinched pretty tightly in the ninth inning. Hill had a hefty 7-0 lead, so the win wasn’t in question. But Chris Davis drove this ball to deep right center with two outs and Manny Machado on the second in the ninth inning, and...

Chris Davis- Another Slugger With Baggage

Nick Cafardo’s “On Baseball” column on Thursday reads “Davis Should Have a Powerful Effect” . I see another slugger with baggage. Davis, currently with the Orioles, certainly has the credentials to help the Red Sox- a league-leading 42 homers and 107 ribbies. His slash numbers of .255/.328/.503 certainly qualify him as a slugger. But there are also downsides ...

Chris Davis destroys bat after getting hit by pitch (video)

Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis possesses some serious power and has crushed 41 home runs and produced 104 RBIs so far this season. So when he’s preparing to take his anger out on something, it’s best to back away and let him vent. Davis was upset after getting hit by a Franklin Morales pitch in the eighth inning of Friday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals,...

Chris Davis’ Dramatic Walk-Off Homer Wakes Up Sleeping Orioles Fan (Video)

Chris Davis made everyone’s decision to stick around worthwhile with his walk-off home run in extra innings Wednesday night. Well, almost everyone. The Baltimore Orioles slugger already had homered earlier in the night when he stepped the plate in the 11th inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. He then uncorked a mammoth blast to center field that lifted Baltimore to a 7-6 win. Pretty...

Perpetually Looping Video: Chris Davis vs. All Capitalism

“Was it Karl Marx,” one might ask drunkenly at a party, “or Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis who memorably declared that ‘The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people’?” The answer, technically: Karl Marx, in his text Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844. The answer, metaphorically: Chris Davis, actually, by means of...

Chris Davis’ Incredible Feat of Strength

Hitting a home run in Major League Baseball requires a considerable amount strength. It’s probably fair to presume, however that, having previously hit 53 of them in a single season, Chris Davis is in the upper reaches of physical strength among MLB players. Of Davis’ 190 career home runs, likely none has displayed that strength more clearly than the one he hit this weekend to...

Chris Davis and the Orioles hanging in the playoff hunt

One week before the trading deadline, the Baltimore Orioles looked like a team that might sell, coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees and dropping the opening game of the series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Their record stood at 46-49 and, with 5.5 games and four teams standing in between them and the second wild-Card spot, moving pending free agents Chris...

Chris Davis helps flip truck over after accident on highway

After accepting a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall, Chris Davis will be away from the Baltimore Orioles for the immediate future. That doesn’t necessarily mean Davis will be out of the news, however. On Monday, the Orioles first baseman found himself in a situation that required assistance, and he provided just that. Terrible […]
