Disappointed in Manny

Recommended Posts

I disagree on the part with Norris getting hit though. He was comming off a few games that he had concussion from getting hit twice in the head on a backswing. So there is something there that he stays to close to the plate.

Probably a result of getting hit too many times by backswings. He is half brain dead.

And you know this how? I think what your looking for is the A's message board.

I don't need to look for an A's message board, I'm fine right here. Maybe you need to take the orange colored glasses off and realize that what Manny did was a punk move.

It was a punk move. However, that doesn't mean that Manny didn't charge the mound because he's a coward or that the pitcher would have whipped his ass. I don't think Manny was even trying to hurt anyone. I think he was trying to send a message that he was pissed. He did it in a very bush league way and it was so obvious that it looks even worse.

I was doing yard work and I did not see Machados' antics live.

However, I saw enough on the replays to lose some respect for the guy.

I did not see the back swing, but if he did not show any concern for the guy I can see where Oakland got upset and retaliated. Throwing the bat in that instance is

unacceptable to say the least. I am disappointed in his actions today. I hope that he learns from the fine and suspension that surely awaits him.

People saying he should have charged the pitcher. Say Manny starts to charge the pitcher gets tackled at the knees by the catcher. How would that work out for the O's?

Manny is gonna get suspended 5 to 10 games.

I would appeal that. In a court of law any good attorney could argue he had no intent to throw at the pitcher when he hurls the bat down the third base line. Pitchers don't play third base and he had no beef with either the third base umpire of the A's thirdbaseman today. The only reason any of you Benedict Arnold Orioles fans (I am personally much more ashamed of some of you than I would be of Manny) are claiming (falsely I might add with zero proof) that he was intending to throw the bat at the pitcher is BECAUSE THE PITCHER WAS THROWING AT HIM, and AT HIS KNEE!. If anyone should be suspended five games it should be the PITCHER!:mad:

I agree he shouldn't have thrown his bat, but it didn't go anywhere in the vicinity of hitting anyone (except maybe ump) but even Rich Dempsey said he would have gone to the mound, and that would have resulted in a suspension.

I will gladly keep those glasses on and back the players that wear the orange. Thank you.

Let's see if Manny handles this like a man. Will he try to say the bat slipped or fess up, apologize, and take his medicine. I'm hoping for the latter but I'm not holding my breath.

I think he got lucky in that his thrown bat was so far off that there will be no real consequences for it beyond his inevitable suspension. If he had succeeded, that's be a clip that would plague him his entire career. I agree that admitting he did it on purpose would be the honorable thing to do, but don't expect it. What I really hope he doesn't do is go and say that it was an accident, because that's a load of BS. At the very least, he should be trying to say as little about it as possible.

I think Manny was understandably upset but I also think he overreacted in both incidents. The tag and the throwing the bat.

Throwing a bat is a bit more then just an overreaction. He needs to get suspended then Buck needs to sit him out his first game off suspension.

It may have been wrong to throw the bat I am on the fence about it the pitcher did throw at him twice. Maybe if more batters start throwing the bat back at the pitchers they stop throwing at batters. If you think about it throwing the bat back at the pitcher is the same as them throwing the ball at a batter IMHO.

lol That is the most intentional, unintentional bat throw ever.

Yeah, VaTech brought it up but I noticed on the first backswing that he didn't look back. A little odd. Even more odd on the second one where the catcher is obviously shaken up. I don't think he did it on purpose but it's odd that he didn't at least show some concern. He acted like nothing happened.

    • A million for Tommy Milone? He’ll be lucky to get a minor league contract from someone. 
    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
    • Brian Kenny on with Russo just now had the observation Cash let his starter go past 18 Batters Faced 5 of the first 6 games.   Obviously a 1-0 score and all the big relievers "rested" in an elimination game different circumstances last night. Mad Dog was ready for blood, but Kenny sort of headed him off at the pass surprising by giving his agreement the Snell pull was incorrect. Given the scuffles of the 4-week postseason, I'm not sure sticking with Anderson as the A reliever did him any favors.  His stat producing robot mode was clearly offline (today the inevitable reports acknowledging fatigue a factor).  Fairbanks or Castillo probably would have been better picks last night for in-inning fireman. Kenny in the spot also had the Mad Dog (pining for Snell to have the Smoltz experience) counter the Dodgers did October with a 2-man rotation, and bullpenning to take the WS clincher and survive two NLCS elimination games.  Obviously in the 162, Urias and May take their turns and do fine, but the October Corbin blueprint got drawn a bit more heavily this year. Snell is kind of an interesting gray area of is he a good enough starter to transcend the 18-batter leash as is correctly done with Cole, etc.  He has the Cy, but also like a 3.50-ish expected ERA across the couple of years including the Cy.   I think the Rays see him more JA Happ than Clayton Kershaw.
    • Really can't wait to see when some of the international guys are starting to make noise.  It's good that we've got a decently regarded system without much presence from international prospects but the system will have a real shot in the arm once a few of these guys start to produce.
    • He's really an unknown because of the bat improvements he showed early on the year are for real, he's a steal as a 3rd round pick.
