If Davis turns down the Orioles qualifying offer and becomes a free agent, the Nats should make him an offer he cannot refuse! He hits from the left side and is a good defender at both 1B and the corner outfield positions——-just what the Nats need. Also he is “good in the clubhouse.” That means that as the Nats show “Paps” the exit, and Davis walks in the other door the clubhouse improves by a factor of 2+.
OK, I realize there could well be some unintended consequences to the above, and also that with Mike Rizzo’s steady bungling over the past 15 months or so that he may have permanently lost his touch. The team might be forced to drop either Clint Robinson or Matt Den Dekker for example. But a Davis acquisition has a huge up-side that is hard to ignore.
