Chris Davis is pounding his glove after what Baltimore Orioles legend Jim Palmer had to say about him earlier this week.

During an on-air segment for MASN Sports on Wednesday, Palmer, who now works as a color commentator for the team, tore into the slumping Davis. In his remarks, Palmer called out Davis for failing to make adjustments at the plate and said that the former MLB home runs leader was “killing this team.”

On Thursday, Davis took an opportunity to respond to Palmer’s criticisms.

“I was disappointed,” he said, per Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun. “Obviously, it bothers me. It’s disappointing that, when things are obviously not going the way that I want, for that to be called into question by guys that I have a lot of trust, have a lot of faith in, I’ve had a good relationship for a number of years.

“I hate that that’s where we are, but at the end of the day, I know the work that I put in in the offseason,” the former All-Star Davis continued. “I know the things that I try to make adjustments on, things that I try to correct, and it’s frustrating for me everyday to come in here every day and not see any return for that. I mean, it’s obvious. The way things are going right now, the last thing I want to hear about is someone within the organization questioning my work ethic. But that’s where we’re at.”

Davis, 32, is having a career-worst year for the 11-34 Orioles, batting a putrid .154/.230/.253with just four home runs and 13 RBIs in 44 games. He is only in Year 3 of an increasingly disastrous seven-year, $161 million contract.

While Davis seems to have an idea of what is ailing him, it is clear that some within the organization are running out of patience with him, and he knows it.
