10:36 AM ET 02.02 | Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette told season plan holders that the club offered first baseman Chris Davis a long-term deal, but nothing came of it. "Really?" Davis said while meeting with reporters this afternoon. "Did he say anything else? Dang it. Keep me up to speed on that. "I know they talked at the end of last year, but obviously nothing came to a head. It's something we're going to have to wait and see. It's not my job to worry about that. "I've said it before and I'll say it every day: I love being in Baltimore. This has been a place that's really felt like a second home to me. Just thinking about opening day last year. It's hard not to fall in love with this city and the fan base. The fans really understand the game of baseball, so I'd love to stay here." Davis avoided arbitration by signing a one-year contract for $10.35 million. He can become a free agent following the 2015 season.

They all say the same thing - I want to be here - but I want to be the highest paid player at my position and take care of my family. A lot of these men need to work a 40 hour week and see how most people live and survive in this country, instead of complaining about how they are being mistreated by their organization over money.

He is already in as friendly a hitters ball park as you will ever find in MLB. And he knows it.

Camden Yards is 4th for homeruns , Wrigley field 11th. Phillies is first for most homeruns hit there in 2013 followed by Reds home park then the Blue Jays.
