Orioles Fan Turns Back to A-Rod

Surprisingly enough, Alex Rodriguez hasn’t been making much noise since we saw his calligraphy on an apologetic letter. Still, that doesn’t mean that all is forgiven, especially when he went on the road. Monday night, A-Rod received the expected boos from the Baltimore crowd.

Matt’s Monday Musings: The Contract Years

What would you do if I sang…out of tune? Ah, The Wonder Years, one of those shows that shall live on forever. You know what doesn’t live on forever?

J.J. Hardy’s Hidden Offensive Collapse

Last season was a banner year for the Baltimore Orioles. The team won 96 games in the regular season and advanced to the ALCS despite a whirlwind of adversity: significant injuries to Matt Wieters and Manny Machado, and huge power declines from Chris Davis and J.J.

Chris Davis Contract Comments Offbase

For a player coming off a season in which he batted only .196 and saw his slugging percentage drop by over 200 points from the previous season, Chris Davis has a lot to say entering his walk year.  Yes, the Orioles offseason left much to be desired, but if anyone was going to criticize the front office, it should not be the player the team succeeded in 2014 in spite of.

Breaking Down the Cause of Chris Davis’ 2014 Slump

To the best of my knowledge, there has not yet been an advanced metric created to define being lost at the plate.  Unfortunately for Orioles fans, it would not take advanced statistical analysis to tell you that Chris Davis was exactly that in 2014.  Following an MVP caliber 2013 season, Davis never quite got untracked last season, and spent much of his time wandering back to the...
