Schmuck stops: My takes on Orioles' Chris Davis, Preakness, Dunbar and more

News item: Chris Davis, who can’t go a day without hearing about his giant contract, entered the Orioles’ weekend series with five homers and 15 RBIs since ending his record streak of hitless at-bats April 13.

My take: Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, who signed long-term deals this year totaling $630 million, had similar home run and RBI totals to Davis’ over the same period despite both having far more at-bats. Davis also had a higher batting average than Harper over that span.
