What's at stake in the Orioles Open Door, Chris Davis went 0-on-3 with three outsiders
Now the wretched things for the first basik of the Oriole. To start the season, he is incredibly 0-by-17 with 11 outsouts. (For reference, his triple-slash .000 / .190 / .000.) Add that to the fact that he only has four years of seven year, a $ 161 contract, and you are going to get a boos.
"This is not what I really was expecting," Davis told reporters after the game. – It was difficult. At the same time, I heard this a lot last year, and this is true. I said this before, I will say again: I understand the frustration. No one is more disappointed than me. "
I'm sure it's not just a thing of 2019. Beginning last season Davis reveals himself 0 for his last 38 – only eight non-party bats in the distance from the record MLB 0-for-46, set by Eugene Welz in 2010 and 2011. The player and he needed more than a full calendar year to reach this historic ocher, so it's fair to say that Davis's slide is one of the most brutal in the history of baseball.
It would be one if it was an accident.  Man, Bill Bergen sucked.
what happens when the king of the three real results loses his speed to beat, and with this his power to keep the jugs honest and reduces to one true result. (The real result for all of us is the decline, and eventually death.) Davis is 33 years old and although he can not ride on the face-to-face, he is probably beyond the place where his mechanics can turn him back. The guy who runs the MLB at home works by 2015. Or just be a great player in a big league. Or even one level of replacement. Davis picked up the rotten -3.5 bar last season and, as if pointing out, it was extremely difficult for Thursday's loss at Hanser Alberto, who spoiled four fields before striking alone.
I'm not sure where everyone is going from here. Fans will not stop laughing if it continues, even though Davis feels more than a pity figure than one who is worthy of antipathy. Orioles did not give any signals that they were ready to consider his contract at an inexhaustible price and release him, even if the replacement player would probably have made the team better. So what's with Davis himself? It can not be fun. He is not going to retire, and not with this contract, and he should not. I was only half joking when I suggested to someone that he could take an appointment to Norfolk, where perhaps he just spends the next few years, putting good numbers against the 21st and not looking. It's not that bad, right? Better than that. Everything will be better than this.
