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.

    • The one difference between Means and Kremer is that Means has a plus-plus pitch that hitters can't hit even when they know it's coming. Kremer's best pitch is his curveball, but I'm not sure it's in the same category as Means' change.  I have some concern that major league hitters will be able to differentiate the breaking ball from the fastball and lay off his curve, particularly when he throws the slow one. His curveball reminded me of Dylan's Bundy's curve in the minors. It worked well there but it never was the same pitch at the major league level. Kremer has some talent, but he really needs that slider and change to come around and be consistent pitches for him if he's to stay a starter. If not, I could see him moving to relief, getting a few ticks on the fastball and be a piece out of the pen.
    • I love that movie! I have the DVD but I also have a copy I got off youtube. full movie, one file.     Came to post this.  
    • Interesting list and write ups.    Overall, he’s pretty high on our pitchers.    Let’s hope he’s right.   Elias hasn’t spent any high picks on pitching as of yet, so most of the guys on the list were inherited from the old regime.   
    • I only watched bits and pieces, but Maryland's offensive sets kill me sometimes.  Guys stand still much or dribble the air out of the ball.  I agree that Stix doesn't seem to want the ball that much.  I've mentioned his lack of a post game dozens of times so I won't go there (I guess I just did).  I don't think he has the best hands either.  I'd like to see him go up strong a dunk it over a dude like once.  As a senior, Cowan still makes some really bad mistakes.  There was sequence where he got double-teamed and picked up his dribble and threw it straight to the opposing defender.  Dribble out of that pressure dude and make a better pass. Wiggins missed some easy ones tonight.  He is a much better spot up shooter.  Occasionally he will flash with a drive.  He had an off night.  Lindo played some bad defense from what I saw. Hopefully they learn from this.  They weren't going to go undefeated.  I believe Penn State is a good team and potential sleeper come March.  
    • Turgeon has never beaten a major conference team in the tourney in his 22 year coaching career. He's a good recruiter but he just never maximizes that talent. Main issues with this team are Stix inside and lack of consistent shooting. Don't see either of these changing much.
    • Sayonara, Adam!   I’m sure you’ll be a great ambassador for US baseball.    I hope you and your family have a blast over there.
