Mets360 MLB Project review and team capsules

The team at Mets360 along with assorted friends inside and outside of baseball took on the roles of all 30 MLB general managers. The idea, conduct the entire offseason in a week. This ended up a massive undertaking and if I had a dollar for every email, text and IM on this project alone, I’d have a down payment for a new car. For this project, we tackled arbitration, free agent...

Davis' suspension could last into 2015 season

Chris Davis sat silently in the Orioles’ clubhouse after Tuesday night’s game. Fully dressed, Davis was on a couch as his teammates tried to rationalize their shocking three games to none deficit in the American League Championship Series.

2014 ALCS preview: Good for baseball, good for fans

I am generally a National League guy, as more interesting, strategic baseball is played on the Senior Circuit. But with the NL featuring franchises we’ll see in the World Series for a fourth consecutive October, I’m more excited for the Royals and Orioles to open the ALCS at Camden Yards Friday night. For the first time in two decades the Yankees and Red Sox both failed to...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Disappointments — First Basemen

The yin and yang of sports is about as powerful as any force there is. For the most part. There are few out of nowhere surprises at first base. Most of the players picked among the top twelve were highly thought of before the season. On the flip side, the players labeled as disappointments were not only picked among the top twelve first basemen but were also probably picked in the...

Orioles Chris Davis unlikely for ALCS

With still give games remaining on his suspension for amphetamines it is doubtful that Chris Davis is added to the roster of the Baltimore Orioles ahead of the American League Championship Series. The bigger reason Davis would not be on the roster is because the Orioles swept the Detroit Tigers in the American League Divisional Series. Davis was only a realistic roster addition...

Ubaldo Jimenez on ALCS roster for Orioles, team could activate Chris Davis in ALDS

getty images The Baltimore Orioles have opted to keep right handed pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on their roster for the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers. Jimenez was a disappointment this season for the Orioles posting a 4.81 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 125 1/3 innings of work. He lost his role in the rotation and finished the season pitching out of the bullpen where...

The Baltimore Orioles clinched the American League East title for the first time since 1997.

Chris Davis Shows Drugs Are Still An Issue In Baseball

Last season, people wanted to truly believe what they were seeing. Chris Davis, a guy who was an average player at best in his professional career up to the beginning of the 2013 season, slugged 53 home runs for the Baltimore Orioles. He was in the running for the American League MVP, and he was a leading vote-getter in the All-Star game. His down season has frustrated people in...

Chris Davis’ Fantasy Value in 2015

This past November I wrote about Chris Davis’ fantasy value heading into 2014 (this was my first ever Baseball Professor article). I recommend you check it out, but the essence of the article was his year a little fluky and regression was going to occur. I had no idea he would regress this much because I projected him to provide top 20 value. On Friday he was suspended for 25...

Why did Davis do it? Thanks to condition, ball began to look like blur

With pressure mounting, Orioles slugger Chris Davis was apparently having so much difficulty combating his ADD/ADHD issue to the point where it was hard for him to concentrate, and hard to even pick up the baseball as it zoomed toward him. Davis is said to have told friends that's what led him to make the mistake that's cost him 25 games, and cost his team, too. Davis knew...

Chris Davis’ Suspension Nothing For Baltimore Orioles To Worry About

The Baltimore Orioles shouldn’t lose sleep over Chris Davis’ suspension. Davis’ suspension is big news, if only because of what he accomplished last season. It’s also a subject of great debate, as one could argue it points out flaws in Major League Baseball’s drug policy. But at field level — which is all that matters, right? — the Orioles’ playoff hopes hardly have...
