This Chris Davis Guy is Working Out OK

Before the season started, the Orioles weren’t sure about first base. They were in the hunt for Adam LaRoche (which, as you know, is Spanish for “the roach.”) and a few other guys who might be able to hit one out of the park and maybe not embarrass themselves on defense.

Chris Davis wasn’t quite an afterthought, but he sure wasn’t a sure thing, either. In fact, just in case he laid a big egg, the O’s picked up Travis Ishakawa to push Davis a little.

LaRoche returned to the Nationals, where he’s hitting .241 with 10 homers and 30 rbis. He’s off to a pretty good start, huh? How ’bout Davis?

He’s hitting .337, with 66 rbis and world-leading 26 homers. And it’s not even close. Carlos Gonzalez leads the National League with 21 homers. Davis just ate Miguel Cabrera’s lunch at Comerica Park, taking Scherzer, Porcello and Valverde deep in an Orioles series win this week.

Somehow Boston still leads the American League East, though they can’t beat Baltimore anymore. The Yankees, give ‘em credit, are finally beginning to crack. And Tampa Bay is disappointing everybody. Speaking of disappointing, don’t even ask about Toronto.

That leaves the O’s. If they keep hitting the ball out of North America’s ballparks and Duqwalter keeps shuffling the limited pitching deck, I don’t see a lot of reasons why Baltimore shouldn’t take care of division business the rest of the way.

Last year, I’d have knocked on wood when I wrote that. But this year, it feels right. Act like you been there before. Because you have.

This disjointed screed was written with one eye on Game 7 of the NBA Finals. That’s why it’s all over the place.
