Does he start the all star game? especially since its in CITI field this year?

If he keeps this up i think the cy young is a lock.
He's gotta start the All Star game, especially in front of his home crowd. Citi Field would go nuts for that

Crush Davis always had dat effortless power.pimp.gif

EDIT

I take that back, Chris Davis's contact rate is the same as last year, the only difference is he's swinging at less pitches outside the zone.

So do steroids improve eyesight?

Davis has one of the best looking swings in MLB.

also, this nugget from Buster Olney:

Buster_ESPN: For those who don't know: Machado is now 29 doubles away from the all-time single-season doubles record, 67, set by Earl Webb in 1931.

I remember the offseason a lot of us O's fans were kinda pissed that they didn't go after Josh Hamilton to get some more pop in the lineup...Buck and DD knew EXACTLY what they had w/ Crush and had the EZ-pass on Hamilton. That's why they're the experts....

Starting pitching on the other hand...oy vey.

There is no proof or evidence that PEDs actually make you a better baseball player. Super serious.

That throw by Brett Gardner was pathetic LOL
post #13005 of 77566

This Yankees team is hard to watch. Never feel like we can come back when we get down 2+ runs. Not good.

 

 

Good to see Baltimore and Pittsburgh doing well though. They have good fans, and since they have been putting a better product on the field PNC and Camden have been packed. Gotta expect the Buccos to come back to earth soon, they're playing 4 games ABOVE their expected winning percentage, but regardless it's pretty cool.

And you still have made it a point of bringing it up a few times this season. I don't understand why.

Yup..and the relief pitching isn't doing this team any favors either. Johnson has been poor, but that's the nature of RP. Best bullpen one year can be one of the worst the very next year. Such a shame, though. Difference between first and second may come down to those blown opportunities.

Glad the O's finally have a power hitter opposing fans find worthy of PED accusations.laugh.gif And while I hate to second guess Buck, you have to wonder if Crush should be in that clean-up slot.

Sweeping the Yanks is always fun pimp.gif

Last year it was the bullpen that was keeping the team afloat in all those one-run wins. THis year, it's the offense carrying the load.

Buck knows a million times more baseball than me, but if I was in charge of the lineup, I'd do this:

McClouth
Markakis
Machado
Davis
Jones
Hardy
Wieters
Flaherty
*Roberts

They need a #1 or #2 in the worst way. I think Tillman, despite his record, is a good #3. Garza would be a huge boost to the rotation. I just wonder what it would take to land him. Even with the TJ surgery, I'm sure Bundy is still off limits as is Gausman.

*edit*

Good article in the WaPo the other day on Crush.
Quote:
By July 2011, a motivated Davis — “I was playing for 29 other teams at that point,” he said — was making a mockery of Class AAA pitching, hitting .368 with a .405 on-base percentage and an .824 slugging percentage, with 24 homers in 48 games.

One of the opposing GMs trying to pry him away from the Rangers was Baltimore’s Andy MacPhail, who had already agreed with Rangers counterpart Jon Daniels on the framework of a deal that would send ace reliever Koji Uehara to Texas in exchange for pitcher Tommy Hunter. But MacPhail wanted Davis added to the deal, and the Rangers responded by insisting the Orioles kick in a substantial amount of cash to offset Uehara’s salary.

The Orioles refused — until a separate trade with the Pirates that sent first baseman Derrek Lee to Pittsburgh freed up some cash, and the Orioles agreed to send $2 million to the Rangers. The deal was done.

Rest of Article in Link

THANK YOU, Pittsburgh!!

Dude played high school football w/ Trent Williams (Skins) and Williams said that Davis was the strongest guy he knew at the time.
