Manny Misses Fan Fest (Buck Not Happy).

Recommended Posts

He's a great basketball player.

He looks to be a very poor NBA player.

That better? :rolleyes:

I am tired of your poking and prodding and one of the main reasons I stopped posting here. Please put me on ignore, you are obnoxious. Do you have a job or do you just sit on here 24-7?

Happy to oblige.

Mind you I never had to resort to name calling.

:D

I get wanting a top prospect to come back but implying he isn't a good basketball player is absurd and disrespectful. Do you know how hard it is to make an NBA roster? I have heard this a few times on here now and each time I do, I shake my head. Ignorant comment IMO. Let the guy live his life and if he chooses to come back, fine. This is not the way to motivate someone IMO.
They both seemed to be quite complimentary of his baseball skills. They never said he was a bat basketball player. Just a benchwarmer. Yeah. That was the word.

Crazy, I called Manny on the original thread about him missing fanfest and got absolutely beat up by most posters.

Feel strongly that he should have attended but he used the birth as an excuse. Looks like I have Buck on my side.

Not by me.

I don't mean to impose my beliefs or lifestyle on others, but I must say that having my brother or sister or either of my wife's brothers present for the birth of any of our children never crossed our mind. I'm really not familiar with any of my friends doing so, either. Sorry, but I just don't think that is the norm. I have no idea on Manny's family dynamic, and it is none of my business, but I can understand the possibility of someone suspecting that it is more of an excuse not to travel to Baltimore in the winter time than a real need to be present at the birth. Perhaps that is what has Buck a little miffed.

It was Amber Hatman's child. I think Yonder was the daddy.

And the Portland Trailblazers would counter with your in the NBA as opposed to the minor leagues, riding buses, which is where you'd be if you were playing baseball right now.

Unless there were some kind of extenuating circumstances regarding the birth, I'd call that a pretty weak excuse.

It is his brother-in-law's ( brother of his wife) child. I mean I don't know what I would do in the situation but I certainly don't take issue with him wanting to be with family.

That doesn't pass the test for me. If you had a business trip, would you cancel it because you had a niece or nephew being born. I wouldn't.

Maybe I'm out of the loop but I've never heard that one as an excuse for missing work. This is really part of Manny's job.

    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
