Peter Angelos is directly involved in Chris Davis negotiations

6 Comments

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that Orioles owner Peter Angelos is “personally involved in the team’s effort to re-sign” free agent first baseman Chris Davis.

You have to figure that suggests the O’s are seriously wanting Davis back. Which makes a lot of sense given that power is scarce these days and that, despite striking out a whole lot, Davis is still one of the premier power hitters in the game. He posted a .923 OPS with 47 home runs and 117 RBI in 160 games this past season for Baltimore. If the O’s don’t keep him, they’ll have a big hole in the middle of their lineup.
