We’ve seen a new first baseman enter the mix and Darren O’Day remain in Baltimore over the last week. But the main event of the Orioles offseason is the team’s effort to keep free agent truck-lifting Home Run King Chris Davis. On Wednesday, reports indicate the team showed they were serious about keeping Davis by putting an offer on the table.
According to ESPN, the O’s are offering seven years and about $150 million. If he accepts, it’s fair to say Crush will be in a pretty good financial situation. He’ll also have the biggest contract for an Orioles player ever. But since there are teams richer than the O’s, his agent also may be able to get more money.
“At some point, he’s going to have to make a decision if that’s enough or how much is enough,” Buck Showalter said on Wednesday. “Believe me, he’s going to make a good call where he wants to go with his baseball and his career and his life. We’re prepared to go either way.”
