WADE DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kansas City Royals Pitcher Wade Davis Does His Best Ricky 'Wild Thing' Vaughn

There are certain things that happen in movies you do not expect to ever see in a real baseball game. No one will ever drop down and do pushups after hitting a pop fly. You'll never see a pitch fly by the play by play man's head, and you will never see someone throw what would be a strike if the batter was the Jolly Green Giant.Okay, maybe that last one you will see. Royals...

How excited are SEC fans and programs about their new SEC Network? Mississippi State decided that your standard 40 or 50 inch flat screen was not good enough for the launch of the new channel. SEC Network began broadcasting just minutes ago, and its already playing on the 112-foot wide video board at Davis Wade Stadium. The @SECNetwork is here! #HailState pic.twitter.com/tp3XvPg47m...

The bullpen is your home, Wade Davis

As recently as this last spring, Wade Davis has expressed his desire to be a starting pitcher. It's not going to happen, Mr. Davis. First, you're not good enough as a starter and secondly, you are too darned good as a relief pitcher. The difference between the two variations of Wade Davis is remarkable and if the Royals' reliever wants a long, long career in baseball...

He might not know exactly why, but Royals' Davis is dominating in relief

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Same approach, different results. Very different results. Royals right-hander Wade Davis swears he's not pitching much differently as a reliever than he was a starter. Nor does he get more "amped up" coming out of the bullpen than he did when he was a starter. "If anything," Davis says, "I was more amped up as a starter. Seriously...

Wade Davis needs to return to the Pen

by John Viril— Wade Davis is the worst starting pitcher in baseball. He just got bombed in New York in Kansas City’s 8-1 loss to the Yankees. He’s 4-8 on the year. Most importantly, his atrocious 5.89 ERA is higher than any other MLB starter. On the surface, it’s hard to explain Davis’ poor performance. His strikeout rate has zoomed since last season’s stint in the bullpen...

Wade Davis: The Best Case Scenario

In the wake of the Kansas City and Tampa Bay trade from Sunday night, many have speculated upon — and Jeff Sullivan has considered with something not unlike aplomb — how Wade Davis might perform in his return to the starting roation (i.e. the role he’s likely to assume with the Royals). As Sullivan notes, Davis was a not particularly excellent starter from 2009 to 2011. Then...
