  1. Buck did make a comment after the game about young players "including guys on our team" (paraphrasing) could learn from JJ about staying engaged out there. Seems like a shot across the bow to Manny to me, but who's to say. Also, he does already have 2 errors on the season I believe, albeit not of the throwing variety. The kid's a natural, but the game is going to humble him awfully quick if he's not careful.
  2. He also continues to wait too long to throw at times and run himself into outs, both issues with his game that he could easily fix.
  3. Right. I guess my question is - do we have faith that he'll pull out of it? Or is he due for a down year? He's swinging at a lot of garbage.
  4. The OH has been remarkably resolute in regards to not starting a panic thread about Manny Machado and I have to say I'm fairly impressed with that. So I'll bite - what's up with Manny? He stinks right now.

  10. <p><p><p>dan-O, thanks for the rep.</p></p></p>

  11. <p><p><p>Didn't want to single anyone out (cough YOU cough <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/tongue.png" alt=":P" srcset="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/tongue@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> ) in the earlier Jimenez thread. But I'm sure, just like you, I'm happy with all the implications of this signing. Thanks for the rep. Also cool name.</p></p></p>

  12. Yeah, this is a full organizational hit. It impacts everything. Current player perception, future player perception, agent perception, fans are angry, FO people are angry, PR people are angry. All because we didn't want to go 2 years? Really? This could set everything back and change the whole view of the organization from trending positive to plummeting back where we were years ago. It's a screw up on a grand scale. It really is.
  13. It's hard to read it any other way right now. So frustrating. Moving backward.
  14. Now Grant may file a grievance which, IIRC, would be the second grievance filed on the Orioles under Duquette. This is so ugly.
