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.

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.

Ranking The Chris Davis Mustache Vs. Other All-Time Orioles Greats

You may have noticed that Chris Davis is on a tear, elevating his season HR total to 30. The Chris Mottram lookalike’s OPS+ is up to 134, the second-best of his career. You may have also noticed that thing on his face: The Orioles slugger had let his beard and mustache go until it was threatening the Orioles’ strict no-beard rule, so he shaved the beard but kept the mustache...

Chris Davis an MVP candidate?

At this point, it seems like the highest form of sacrilege to suggest that anyone other than Mike Trout has an outside shot at winning the American League MVP award, but bear with me. Chris Davis, who has been about as hot as anyone over the past 15 games, has a legitimate chance to be in the hunt for the award just a year removed from a truly terrible 2014 season. It may be a slim...

Baltimore Orioles Slugger Chris Davis Must Have Angered the Baseball Gods

If you are looked upon as a slugger that means people expect you to hit home runs. They don't want to see you get a bunch of singles or doubles and don't expect you to get many triples (because sluggers are usually bigger guys that are not real fast). Normally, Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis is pretty good at hitting the long ball. Just not lately. He's had one in July and 19 on the...
