Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis hits 50th home run on season (video)

Chris Davis has hit his 50th home run on the season. The home run ties Brady Anderson for most home runs in a season for the Baltimore Orioles. It was a clutch time for Davis to hit number 50 as it came in a tie game off of Toronto Blue Jays all-star reliever Steve Delabar in the 8th inning.

The home run extends Davis’s American League lead over the Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera by 7. ESPN sent out a tweet putting into perspective just how special Chris Davis’ season has been.

 

MLB, wanting to get in on the action, actually started printing money with Chris Davis’ face on it.

 

I am not sure about the legality of the tender but I know that if you have a piece of it in Baltimore it is as good as gold. I am sure that Davis would trade at least a portion of these home runs if it meant that the Orioles would make it into the playoffs this year. Baltimore is currently 2.5 games back of a wildcard spot, which doesn’t sound that bad unless you look at the fact that there are currently 5 teams in front of them all vying for 2 spots.

I don’t think that this is the year for Baltimore but that remains to be seen. After all, not many people predicted they were going to make the postseason last year.
