Chris Davis

  1. It begins: Miguel Cabrera vs. Mike Trout, round two

    Aug 10, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Expect a lot of columns of this nature over the next few months until a winner is announced. MLB.com’s Mike Bauman, using the two home runs Miguel Cabrera hit last night and this afternoon as a springboard, writes that Cabrera is “transcending” the AL MVP debate, which is once again boiling down to Cabrera and…

  2. Chris Davis crushes home run #42 of the season, 466 feet away

    Aug 10, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Chris Davis

    A day after carrying his Orioles to a ten-inning victory over the Giants, first baseman Chris Davis hit home run #42 of the season, a solo shot, in the eighth inning against reliever Santiago Casilla to bring his team within one run. Unfortunately for the Orioles, however, Casilla and closer Sergio Romo did not allow…

  3. Bruce Bochy Walked Adam Jones to get to Chris Davis. It didn’t work.

    Bruce Bochy

    There are all kinds of ideas that, when looked at up close in objective terms, seem to make a lot of sense. Many of these ideas, however, don’t look so good from 10,000 feet. And certainly don’t look good in hindsight. And yes, this is hindsight. But there is no escaping the fact that, ultimately,…

  4. HBT Daily: Matt Harvey earned the right to pitch that shutout

    Plus my thoughts on the Chase Utley extension and whether Miguel Cabrera has a run at Chris Davis left in him this year.

  5. Miguel Cabrera rejoins lineup after five-day absence

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:50 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera is back at third base for the Tigers on Monday after resting an abdominal strain for five days. Cabrera made a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against the White Sox and singled in his first at-bat since Tuesday, before immediately being removed for a pinch-runner. The Tigers won all four games while Cabrera was absent…

  6. Chris Davis joined the 40-homer club in style

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    Chris Davis

    It was never a matter of if, but when Orioles first baseman Chris Davis would join the 40-homer club. The slugger went into the All-Star break with 37, but came back a bit slow, going homerless in his first ten games after the break. But he homered Tuesday, he homered yesterday, and now he has…

  7. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Giants 2, Phillies 1: A few days ago Jonathan Papelbon watched his team lose another game and said “I definitely didn’t come here for this.” Well, they didn’t show up at the ballpark yesterday expecting Papelbon to give up four singles and blow the lead. Again. Cole Hamels‘ eight shutout innings were for naught and…

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…

  10. Why, exactly, do we suspect Bartolo Colon of using PEDs?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Oakland Athletics Photo Day

    I woke up Sunday morning to see an interesting tweet from Buster Olney: Bartolo Colon is 40 years old and got the win in the 1998 ASG–which is why a whole lot of people in the game wonder if he’s cheating,again. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 28, 2013 It struck me funny. Because when I…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

  12. Miguel Cabrera is going to hit .730

    Jul 18, 2013, 3:21 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    The Cespedes Family Barbecue blog plays the same on-pace game lots of other people have ridiculously played with respect to Chris Davis‘ home run totals following his great first half. The difference: Cespedes Family Barbecue is doing it with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. Folks: the season started earlier than normal and the…

  13. Chris Davis quit Twitter

    Jul 17, 2013, 12:18 PM EST

    Chris Davis

    Chris Davis quit Twitter last week, shutting down his account just before the All-Star game because, as the MLB home run leader told Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun: “It wasn’t my cup of tea.” Having seen just a little of the steroid-accusing tweets directed at Davis for the past several months I can only…

  14. Jose Fernandez made history with Bob Feller, Doc Gooden

    Jose Fernandez AP

    Like everything else about last night’s All-Star game Jose Fernandez was overshadowed by Mariano Rivera, but the Marlins rookie had a pretty eventful evening too. Fernandez was the youngest All-Star pitcher at age 20 and threw a 1-2-3 sixth inning, setting down former MVP Dustin Pedroia, former MVP Miguel Cabrera, and current MLB home run…

  15. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  16. UPDATE: The American League is now up 3-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:52 PM EST

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    10:52 PM: It’s now 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth, as the AL strung some hits off Craig Kimbrel, capped by Jason Kipnis‘ two out double scoring Sal Perez. And a surprise? Mariano Rivera comes into the game in the bottom of the eighth, not the ninth. Interesting choice. 9:41 PM: The AL extends…

  18. Chris Davis had a bloody blister on his hand during the Home Run Derby

    American League batter Chris Davis, of the Baltimore Orioles, hits a home run during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in New York

    Chris Davis has hit the most homers in the first half, but he didn’t have a great Home Run Debry. Why? A blister. A bloody one at that: Davis said a blister in his right palm burst. He has it every year. No concern. He usually uses passes batting gloves. Switched to those. — Dan…

  19. It’s Cespedes vs. Harper in the Home Run Derby final

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:24 PM EST

    National League batter Bryce Harper, of the Washington Nationals, watches his home run during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in New York

    In the Home Run Derby your first two round totals determine whether you make the finals. Yoenis Cespedes had 17 in the first, so he was definitely going to make it. His opponent wasn’t clear, though. Now it is, with Bryce Harper hitting eight homers in round two. Chris Davis didn’t — in fact, he…

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…

    Jul 15, 2013, 3:44 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder can join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only three-time winners of the Home Run Derby on Monday night, but to do it, he’ll have to best Chris Davis, who is currently on pace to hit 60 bombs this year. This year’s Home Run Derby field is unusual in that it features just three…

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

  24. Chris Davis homers in fourth consecutive game, ends first half with 37

    Jul 14, 2013, 10:00 PM EST

    Chris Davis

    Wrapping up the final series of the first half, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis homered in his fourth consecutive game as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 7-4. The homer, a two-run shot in the third inning against Josh Johnson, was his 37th of the season, tying Reggie Jackson’s American League record for first-half home…

  25. Chris Davis hits 36th homer of season, now on pace for 61

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Orioles Rays Baseball

    It seems like Orioles first baseman Chris Davis homers on every day that ends in “y”. This afternoon against Blue Jays starter Todd Redmond, Davis went deep for the 36th time this season and for the third consecutive game. The Orioles lost 7-3 despite the best efforts of Davis as starter Jason Hammel allowed six…
