Chris Davis is ridiculous

24 Comments

Chris Davis’ insane season continues apace. Today the Orioles’ first baseman — playing DH — hit two two-run homers and a ground rule double to collect five RBI as the Orioles trounced the Tigers 13-3 in Detroit.

That’s 26 homers on the season for Davis, including four in his last four games. His season line is up to .337/.413/.720. He’s on pace for 58 homers and 146 RBI. Not bad for a guy who, in this MLB Network video, excerpted from tonight’s episode of “MLB Tonight,” admits to wanting to quit baseball back when he was with the Rangers:

Davis’  teammate Manny Machado and today’s opponent Miguel Cabrera will each have something to say about it, but at the moment, it’s hard not to see Davis as the favorite for the AL MVP.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
