Orioles' Chris Davis is on verge of making MLB history, and not in a good way

Chris Davis is getting close to breaking the worst kind of MLB record.

After going 0-4 at the plate on Sunday against the Yankees, the first baseman stands at 44 hitless at-bats stretching back from last season. Two more and he will tie the record for the longest streak of consecutive at-bats that have gone without a hit. 

And yes, Davis isn't happy about it either.

“It’s not something I was really expecting,” Davis said after Thursday’s game. “It was tough. At the same time, I heard it a lot last year, and rightfully so.

"I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I understand the frustration. Nobody’s more frustrated than I am.”

This came after the once-slugger was showered with boos on his own turf again on Sunday, striking out swinging at his third and final at-bat of the game.

Davis signed a seven-year, $161-million dollar contract with the Orioles in 2015. 

So what happened? Clearly, no one knows. But what we do know is that frustration is building, team tensions are rising, and watching Davis try to hit a baseball is becoming pretty mind-numbing.

The All-Star has a chance to snap his streak tonight as the Orioles face off against Marco Estrada in Baltimore. The right-handed pitcher has started 3 games this season and holds an ERA of 2.76. If Davis doesn't shape up, the Oakland Athletics could witness one of the worst record setting performances in MLB history.

We can’t stop staring at these Bowie Baysox commemorative moon landing jerseys

One of the coolest things about Minor League Baseball is the creativity that comes with it.

The stadiums. The ice cream deals. The interesting mascots. And most importantly, the uniforms.

The Bowie Baysox, the Double-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, released special uniforms they will be wearing on Saturday for the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing.

And, oh wow, are they something. Take a look.

On the front of the uniform, you can see the image of where lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin planted the American flag on the lunar surface of the moon. On the back, a satellite view of the moon is pictured, with the player's number on top of it. Both the number and the cursive "Baysox" on the front are filled in with the American flag.

If you're looking for some to do on Saturday, go support the Baysox and their Moon Landing uniforms. If only there was a jersey giveaway.
