Chili Davis is still playing?
 
2013-04-06 12:27:57 PM  
If he keeps this up, he'll have to be banned for life for PEDs

I'm OK with this.

Until yesterday, he had more runs than the Marlins.

Stoopid Mets.

Earl Weaver would be shaking Chris Davis' farking hand after every farking home run and telling all his farking players to be more like Chris farking Davis and just hit the farking baseball out of the farking park and quit trying to be farking cute at the plate trying to hit for farking average and hitting farking singles that don't score farking runs.

I'll bet even money he can't keep it up all season long.

The person who I am playing against in fantasy benched Chris Davis yesterday for some reason. That was not a good decision by him.
 
2013-04-06 01:43:40 PM  
To put this into perspective, he's driven in more runs than 14 teams have scored so far this season.

You gotta ride the streaks, man!

As a lifelong O's fan ( Baltimore born and bred ), I'm loving it ! THere will the inevitable slump, though. Davis is known as a streaky hitter... I just hope he keeps it up through the World Series !

Orioles magic baby! The announcers had basically just said, "Bases loaded, Davis swings..." and the bar erupted. Awesome home opener!

Yeah bobby is lagging but he was puking earlier this week. Frazier plouffe and fowler have been carrying my ass. Aka my junk and speculation picks

Chris kicks ass. He'll put up a couple runs and then get on the mound.
 
2013-04-06 04:28:16 PM  
I'm having trouble doing the math here:

FTA: Davis also became the first Oriole and only fourth player in Major League history to get a home run in four straight games to begin the season. Willie Mays (1971), Mark McGwire (1998) and Nelson Cruz (2011) are the other three....

FTA: Since Bill Dickey did it with the Yankees in 1937, Davis is the first player to homer and drive in at least three runs in his team's first four games.

Doesn't the second line mean that Bill Dickey homered in the first four games of the season?

After 4 games Orioles' Chris Davis is still on pace to hit 162 home runs

After only 4 games in 1998 they started projecting McGwire was going to hit 90 homeruns.  That's when I knew something was up.

I have no clue what they are talking about with Dickey... I see nothing special about his first four games.

My favorite Orioles moment in years.  That game wasted the better part of what was supposed to be a productive afternoon. God bless him.

BTW, you guys are missing the bigger story: Baltimore, Texas, Atlanta, Arizona, Colorado AND San Francisco are all on pace to win 122 games this year.  The Nats are on pace for 130 wins.

Check out the end of June: Dickey homers and drives in 3+ runs for 5 consecutive games.  Article screwed up when it said it was the first four games of the season.

Hell of a season from Dickey.  .332/.417/.570 with 29 HR.  Threw out 48% of opposing base stealers to boot, which would be an above-average season by Pudge Rodriguez's standard.

But it only took four games to ensure that no one was on pace for 162 wins.

Actually that's a really good point.  I was pretty surprised that everybody had at least 1 win and 1 loss within their first four games.
 
2013-04-07 01:41:48 AM  
Since 5 games is now a reasonable sample-size, he's also on pace to commit 32 errors, each directly resulting in a BAL loss.

Good luck to your Orioles. Them and my A's were the two best stories of last season. I've wished the O's well since the days of Brooks and Frank. I hope to see y'all in the ALCS.

Sounds like he's filling in for Mark Reynolds nicely.

I read that as Chili Davis and was stuck in a time warp for a moment.
