7. More importantly, Chris Davis playing well at first base

With a bat in his hands, Davis is one of the most feared players in the Orioles' dugout. With a glove on his hand, however, the team needs Davis to prove he can be the everyday first baseman this year. After Davis struggled defensively at first base early last season, Mark Reynolds took over the position. With Reynolds gone, Davis' glove will play as much of a factor in the Orioles' success as his bat.Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE / US PRESSWIRE
