Chris Davis

  1. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  2. Chris Davis leaves game in fifth, needs an MRI

    May 4, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    Orioles Rays Baseball

    AL Player of the Month for April, Chris Davis, left last night’s O’s-Angels game in the fifth inning with a knee injury. The injury happened as he ran out a ground ball, with Davis hobbling as he crossed first base. His comments after the game: “[I] hit the bag funny, obviously,” Davis said. “My knee kind…

  3. Justin Upton, Chris Davis named Players of the Month for April

    May 2, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    April is the cruelest month. Especially if you’re a baseball that had the misfortune of being pitched to Justin Upton or Chris Davis: Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has been voted the Budweiser Presents American League Player of the Month for  April … Davis batted .348 (32-for-92) with eight doubles, nine home runs, 28 RBI,…

  5. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…

  6. John Buck has driven in more runs than the Marlins have scored this season

    Apr 13, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    New York Mets John Buck high-fives teammate Ike Davis in game against Twins in Minneapolis

    When the Marlins included John Buck in their blockbuster deal with the Blue Jays in December, they were mostly happy to get rid of his salary. He was later considered a throw-in as part of the deal that brought top prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard to the Mets for R.A. Dickey. However, the 32-year-old…

  7. Some pitching feats in tonight’s action

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

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

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…

  9. Clayton Kershaw, Chris Davis, MLB players of the week

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:06 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw AP

    There’s clearly an anti-Upton and Morse bias afoot in Major League Baseball. Bears investigating. From the MLB press release machine: Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw has been named National League Player of the Week for the period ending April 7th. The announcement was made earlier today on MLB Network. Kershaw went 2-0 in…

    There’s a lot that goes on during the weekend of a baseball season. And a lot of you, for reasons that must make some sort of sense, but like, whatever, choose to only read HBT during the week while you’re at work. I guess that’s OK. I’m sure your family is nice. But you really…

  11. Chris Davis becomes fourth player in MLB history to homer in first four games of season

    Apr 5, 2013, 7:27 PM EDT

    Chris Davis Getty

    It’s official: Chris Davis is the hottest hitter on the planet right now. Davis’ early season rampage continued in the Orioles’ home opener this afternoon, as he delivered a go-ahead grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning to lead the club to a 9-5 comeback win over the Twins. The opposite-field blast capped…

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

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman and Dusty Baker

    Reds 5, Angels 4: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton finally upped their averages north of .000 — each went 1 for 4 and drove in a couple — but not enough to matter. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth against the top of the order. Mike Trout singled but then he got Aybar…

    Texas Rangers pitcher Darvish reacts after a hit by Houston Astros' Gonzalez goes through his legs in their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers 7, Astros 0: Part of me feels like if the Rangers didn’t score all those runs in the eighth and ninth innings that Darvish would have been fresher and finished this thing off. Part of me feels like if he wasn’t facing the Astros that it would have been over in the sixth. But…

  15. Jonny Gomes requires three stitches in knee after banging into outfield fence

    Feb 28, 2013, 7:02 PM EDT

    Jonny Gomes

    This was understandably lost in the concern regarding Will Middlebrooks‘ wrist, but Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston passes along word that Jonny Gomes required three stitches in his left knee after he banged into the left field fence during last night’s game against the Orioles. It appears Gomes suffered the injury when he made an…

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

  17. Orioles among four teams to meet with Nick Swisher’s agent

    Dec 4, 2012, 9:04 PM EDT

    Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher

    There have been mixed messages over just how much the Orioles have to spend this winter, but it looks like they are considering one big-ticket item after meeting with Nick Swisher‘s agent, Dan Lozano, on Tuesday. Three other teams also met with Lozano about Swisher, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown. Swisher, who is married…

  18. So much for Adam Jones’ breakthrough season

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Adam Jones

    Adam Jones hit 32 homers and scored 103 runs for the Orioles during his finest regular season to date. Which is pretty hard to believe giving how badly he bombed during the ALDS. Jones went 2-for-23 against the Yankees and led the world in ugly at-bats. To go along with his six strikeouts, he had…

  19. CC Sabathia goes nine as Yankees beat Orioles, move on to ALCS

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    Just as Justin Verlander pitched the Tigers past the A’s, CC Sabathia proved to be the dominant presence as the Yankees beat the Orioles 3-1 in Friday’s decisive Game 5 and advanced to the ALCS. Sabathia, coming off a win in Game 1 in which he nearly went the distance, did go nine this time…

  20. Orioles and Yankees scoreless through four innings in Game 5 of ALDS

    Oct 12, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Jason Hammel Getty

    Consistent with what we have seen for most of this series, there hasn’t much offense so far today. The Orioles and Yankees are scoreless through the first four innings in Game 5 of the ALDS in the Bronx. Jason Hammel, who allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings back in Game 1, is perfect over…

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:02 AM EDT

    J.J. Hardy Getty

    The Orioles have a little bit of life left. J.J. Hardy just delivered an RBI double off David Phelps in the top of the 13th inning to give the Orioles a 2-1 lead over the Yankees. It broke the team’s 0-for-15 streak with runners in scoring position. Manny Machado got the inning started with an…

  25. No homers, no problem for Chris Davis

    Oct 9, 2012, 12:59 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    When he’s not winning games as a reliever, Chris Davis is pretty much known as a home run guy. He hit three of them in a win over Toronto on Aug. 24, and he homered in six games in a row coming down the stretch, helping the Orioles lock up a wild card bid in…
