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.

    • Guys, I'm no moderator, but the interesting debate about McGregor, et al, has (IMHO) reached critical mass. 
    • Don't have anything on hand.  Not sure where to look or even if there is a trustworthy source for the information.  I'm mostly going be fallible memory of how hard guys threw and how, for the most part, left handed velocity is a couple ticks behind right handed velocity. As for your video, sure he looked good.  You chose a start in which he threw a shutout.  I remember DCab looking really good when he threw that one hitter against the Yankees. My point has been, this whole time, that you can't make it in the majors today with the K rate that McGregor had when he pitched. If you would like to show me guys have sustained success in today's game with a K rate under 4...
    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.
