Chris DavisChris Davis‘ win in the Orioles 17-inning marathon in Boston is one of the best moments of the 2012 season. Watching him strikeout Adrian Gonzalez still brings a smile to my face.

Davis’ agent, Scott Boras, recently negotiated his 2013 contract and, according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com, O’s GM Dan Duquette threw in a few bones for the win against the Red Sox.

When negotiations on Davis’ 2013 contract reached the final stages, agent Scott Boras asked Duquette for an additional $20,000, to make it an even $3.3 million.

“I told him, ‘I’ll give him $15,000, and then you have to tell him that the other $5,000 is for that win in Boston,’ ” Duquette said Monday.

Boras kept his part of the bargain.

“Five thousand dollars? That’s cheap,” Davis said Monday, laughing about it. “But I never thought I’d get paid to pitch, and now I have. And $5,000 is just about the right amount.”
