Has Anyone Else Heard That The Dreaded Orioles Physical Has Put A Snag In The Manny Trade?

Recommended Posts

Man o man. Why does it seem that we’re the only team that has this issue? If it wasn’t the Orioles you could assume that another team has made a better offer, but since it is the Orioles, I have no choice but to believe it.

How often have our physicals been wrong?

You could probably find something wrong on just about anybody.

So much for Manny will be traded this week. It's a shame that FO is this way. I think this is Peter sticking his foot in a deal. How much longer can O's fans continue to put up with this crap?

Yeah, this has Peter Angelos written all over it. Won't spend to keep guys like Manny. Won't allow them to be traded. Won't allow his team to participate in the international market. I am do sick of this man. He is an embarrassment to fans of the Orioles.

He's to MLB what Al Davis was to the NFL. I won't wish anyone dead, but it seems that's the only way this team will ever have a shot to be run like a real organization again

And some will find a way to blame Duquette. A top 50 prospect and a top 100 prospect plus another prospect who's shown promise at a young age for 2 months of Machado is a nice haul. Yet, here comes Angelos. I despise the man

There are plenty of terrorists and murderers that I wish were dead.  Angelos is kind of like the baseball version of a terrorist.  That being said, I don't wish him dead.  Unfortunately it appears that is the only way we can ever break free from his clutches.

What I meant is, I won't wish someone dead over something trivial like baseball. It's fair game on people that commit horrible acts.

It's still done and going through.

This info was talked about in the Machado trade expectations thread.

Never say that with Peter Angelos involved. Brian Roberts to the Braves was done too. So was Britton to the Astros. Never say never with this team.

I have nothing wrong with the O's physicals over the last few years. It prevented us from getting Balfour and it nearly prevented us from getting Gallardo had Duquette did the right thing and walked completely away instead of restructuring the contract. There were also a few other scenarios that ended up being non-issues re: more stringent physicals.

    • 2 of the 4 you mentioned aren't garunteed to even be with the Orioles after Spring Training ends. 
    • I'm not sure what happened to the post about the Orioles adding more speed. Escobar stole 8 out of 10 bases last year. As recently as 2012 and 2014 he stole over 30 bases.  He is a very good base stealer when he runs. He has one of the highest success ratings in baseball history stealing bases. He is 174 for 218 or 80%. Having Young, Jr 80%, Villar 78%, Mullins 79% and Escobar 80% so far will help us on the bases and hopefully we will stop being a station to station team. Amazing Elias has added two more stolen base guys with 80% success rates to go with our 78 % and 79% rates.
    • I wanted to create a catch all thread for the labor agreement and the potential work stoppage after 2021. Adam Wainwright and Sean Doolittle are very vocal on Twitter from a player's perspective. I am hoping to find discussion around potential solutions along with links to good articles. Is there a good resource that collects all draft bonuses?  I was hoping to see that when thinking about minor league compensation.
    • Love these chats.  Already looking forward to the next one.  Agree with the comment above about a weekly update. Great info, great chemistry.  Love the fact that you guys are local and know the players better than some of the national media. From a marketing standpoint, give yourselves some credit.  I know Terry mentions 105.7 and Orioleshangout.com several times but how about getting rid of the plain (sahara desert) background and put up some type of wall, curtain, banner behind you that gives the youtube viewer direction to the website Great job.  Thanks! 
    • O's just doing their part to get these dominos rolling.  With Escobar out of the way, Manny should be next 🙄😂
    • Several reporters have said Davis arrived last Saturday February 9th and has been sick the entire time. He didn't just arrive on Thursday or yesterday the 15th. I would like to see his stance during his first appearance in batting practice and in his first spring training game. Can someone in Sarasota film or photograph him?
    • I think he is adding to the collective talent in the organization without breaking the bank or making any crazy commitment.   The combination of veteran presence, additional competition, and his ability to play every day and multiple positions makes this a no brainer right now for this organization.
