The sin of Oriole Chris Davis is that he is the highest-paid player in O’s history, and his output nose-dived shortly after his income soared. When you under-produce this spectacularly, the world gets very harsh, very fast. But there are lessons here.
The Orioles are trying to lift themselves from the ashes of their historically bad 2018 season, and — win or lose — they can lift up their troubled city if their effort sends the right message to the fans.
New Orioles baseball operations chief will be coming from a new direction after helping build the Houston Astros into a World Series team, but he'll need several years to transform the O's into a 21st century operation.
The executive search would be daunting enough, but another round of arbitration in the long-running Mid-Atlantic Sports Network rights dispute with the Washington Nationals also is a major source of concern for the Orioles. Both situations could come to a head this month.

As the Orioles and Showalter part ways at the end of a 115-loss season, players said the manager who oversaw that collapse was the same who led them to three playoff appearances in five years, for better or worse.
