Nobody Knows Who The Hell Villar: THE 2019 BALTIMORE ORIOLES

Message Bookmarked

This is the thread where we ask: can Chris Davis clear the Mendoza Line? Do we get to see Yusniel Diaz? Do we miss Jonathan Schoop yet? Can we hold it to 99 losses? And of course, the eternal Baltimore question: Why Not?

In Jane Leavy’s Ruth biography she writes of Davis dressing in coat and tie to visit Ruth’s bats. I feel badly for him. https://t.co/rDGKAbWi5M

0-47, new record.

I wouldn't cut Davis loose for that, but he's been terrible for two whole seasons, and he was half-terrible the year before that. He's a free agent in 2023...Is that just too much money (another $70M) for one team to eat?

would you rather eat it with or without him playing, a la Chico Marx?

i can see myself putting up with a lot of shit for $23m a year, but chris davis has already made $120m. is he really prepared to be a laughingstock for the not-quite four years left on his deal?

not sure what the alternative is. best thing they can do right now is set him up as a hot dog vendor - that's the most value they're gonna get out of him right now

Davis 0-5 tonight but hit the ball hard several times; maybe I'm a ridiculous optimist but I see that as a big improvement of the guy we've been seeing who looked frankly scared to swing.

5-5 so far. I'll take it! This is the way this season was supposed to work. You throw all these no-names on the field and you see if any of them can play.

Rio Ruiz at first base tonight

they've now allowed 36 homers (in 12.5 games), 13 more than any other team

0-for-2, Davis walked his 3rd time up

Sooo, does the Oriole bird have his mouth open or closed in their logo? 🤔https://t.co/eRvzvF29IU pic.twitter.com/Ctu1LRSvvA

Davis singled to right, Mancini scored and Smith Jr. scored, Ruiz to second.

RIP legend...

...yet shouldn't count because it was against Porcello, arguable the worst starter in the majors.

There are ten Baltimore Orioles currently playing hacky-sack in left field. More updates as this story develops. #NewsYouCanUse
