O’s setting deadline on huge Davis offer

The Orioles reportedly made Chris Davis a huge offer but he's waiting around to see if something else comes along, but the Orioles aren't waiting around forever and are willing to pull away and not turn back.

The Orioles reportedly made Chris Davis a huge offer but he’s waiting around to see if something else comes along, but the Orioles aren’t waiting around forever and are willing to pull away and not turn back.

If Chris Davis is not wearing an Orioles uniform next year then that is on him, not the Orioles.

Multiple reports are saying the Orioles have offered Davis a seven deal worth in the neighborhood of $150 million and there is not too much competition in the bidding, but the Scott Boras client keeps looking around for other deals. And if he wants to wait around the Orioles are going to back out.

Dan Duquette has made getting a power left-handed hitter in the lineup a priority this offseason and had reportedly given Davis until Christmas, and possibly not even that long, to agree to the deal of the Orioles are going in a different direction and not coming back.

The $150 million deal shows the Orioles are clearly interested in adding a huge bat like Davis’ but they cannot just give out more money, especially if they are not competing with half of the league for his services, just because Davis and Boras want more money. And the Orioles are not going to wait with an offer on the table and see all of these other free agents sign with other clubs to later see Davis go somewhere else.

If Davis is not willing to sign the Orioles are going to turn their attention to Justin Upton, Prince Fielder, Alex Gordon or Pedro Alvarez.

It was assumed that after the Orioles traded for Mark Trumbo it was in preparation for losing Davis but Duquette and Peter Angelos have not been shy about their interest in keeping Davis or bringing in another big left-handed bat to put in the middle of the lineup along with the slugging right-handed hitter. Reports also say the Orioles were previously interested in trading for Milwaukee’s Adam Lind or Texas’ Mitch Moreland, but are said to be out on both of them.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
