Chris Davis getting mad is extremely entertaining

Chris Davis has had a horrendous start to the season. Baltimore’s $161 million man entered last night’s game with the Blue Jays 3-for-30 and then, to make matters worse, he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. I know he’s just looking for somewhere to direct blame, but it certainly isn’t the bat’s fault.

I can watch this over and over again. I never really had anything against Davis, to be honest, and found his booming, effortless homers to be pretty entertaining until he bad mouthed Jose Bautista. This is when Chris Davis made the list.

He’s actually got a pretty good stat line — said no one ever…. He’s a guy who’s got a very bad stat line.

Davis has a .088 batting average and has struck out nine times in 40 plate appearances. He’s getting paid $23 million this season and will get paid $23 million the next four seasons after that.

Things are going so badly that he tried to lay down a bunt on Future Gold Glove Winner Ryan Tepera.

Here’s how Davis’ at bats went yesterday…

1. I’m not gonna swing at anything

2. I’m gonna swing at everything

3. I’m gonna show bunt and pull back when it’s down the middle, then bunt with two strikes
