I’m trying to help, Cards fans. I really am. But your local news station is not helping.
Bright side: about one of every three comments I read is basically telling them to cut that crap out because that, more than anything, is why people are getting on Cards fans lately.
(Thanks to Matt Sebek, who is also totally tired of this crap, for the heads up)
The Orioles announced on Sunday that first baseman Chris Davis has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a hip injury. Pitcher Evan Phillips was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.
It is unclear when Davis, 33, suffered the injury, but he hadn’t started since Thursday. Davis famously got off to a very slow start — setting a record for futility — but has hit better over the last six weeks or so. Since April 13, he has a .229/.302/.427 batting line with five home runs and 15 RBI in 106 plate appearances. Still not what the Orioles want, but better than nothing.
Renato Núñez and Trey Mancini will handle first base while Davis is recovering from his injury.
