That homerun...

Recommended Posts

I certainly didn't. I was at the game and Flash's front of his uniform was stained with infield dirt, which he wore proudly. I didn't see where he got the dirt on his shirt, but it must have been a hell of a play. Flash is the perfect utility guy and I'm glad he's on the team.

I re-watched some highlights using KC's broadcast, and they had this exchange right after it was hit:

Rex Hudler: "I was watching him today in batting practice. He's got a couple bunt hits this year, and I was giving him a hard time, I said, 'Man, forget about bunts.' He said, 'This is 5 o'clock hitting. That's 7 o'clock hitting."

After a pause, Denny Matthews said, "So who else do the Royals have to worry about tonight after a Rex Hudler pep talk?"

Ha ha ha.

That dirt... came from a freaking gold glove play he had just made at third (after Manny's amazing catch) when KC had bases loaded with 0 outs, and Ubaldo had already walked in their first run.

Buck was losing his damn mind in the dugout, the leash was tight and about to be pulled when Davis caught the infield pop-up, and then amazing plays by Manny and Flash ended the KC rally.

It also killed them for the night. They never recovered from that.

That's pretty funny.

I thought this thread was going to be about the Manny HR that the wind gust pushed back 50 feet onto the field. That was crazy.

Flaherty shows flashes of potential. That nickname is more fitting than we all thought. .899 OPS this month while playing great D at 3rd.

Both Fla and Manny saved Ubaldo that inning with phenominal plays - both arguably playing their second position.

Besides the homer, Flash made outs on 2 hard hit balls, so he might be hitting his groove finally.

He did pretty well in 2014, playing for Manny.

I actually missed the brawl. I was out hunting where Flaherty's homerun hit when the brawl started. By the time I got to the flagcourt, it was all over except for guys standing around on the field.

Here's where Flaherty's homerun landed:

    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
    • This. I was always a MD Basketball fan first football fan second even though I like football more. Mostly because I grew up with Len Bias during the glory years of Lefty and then Gary Williams cam in and let them very relevent winning it all with an underdog squad. I could not be happier that Turgeon is gone as I've been off his bandwagon for a long time. He's an awful in game coach and his offense is stale, boring and basically resides around throwing up threes or letting his star be stars. Losing Wiggens and Morsell should have told Evans he needed to finally push him out the door, but now we have another lost year.  They need a splashy signing that will invigorate the recruiting and the program. I'll be honest, I tried watching a game or two but found myself disinterested and worse, I really cared less about the VT game where they just looked awful down the stretch. All I kept thinking to myself is more boring Turgeon ball. Either way, I wish there was some way to go back to the ACC but I doubt that will ever happen. MD football will always be irrelevant in the Big-10 because they will never be able to compete with Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State because they have huge packed stadiums every year and compete in major bowls while the Terps end up in Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  And yes, I had to look up a brand of douche! MD basketball should be good because of the local talent and facilities, but as was mentioned already, the college sports scene has changed with social media, one and done possibilities and the transfer pool. And that's doesn't even take into consideration the "likeness pay" is going to have. Both programs need big time coaches to ever have a chance but sadly, Evans is not concerned with making money rather than having success in the field/court.
    • I read them..but a lot of them don’t matter and/or don’t provide the advantage it used to.

    • If he is in a class of his own a la Adley was, let’s hope under slot isn’t a concern. I’m extremely excited to watch amateur ball this spring. 
    • That's a pretty broad brush to paint an entire generation. I just laid out all the reasons that makes UMD such an attractive job.  Seems like you're the one not paying attention. Gary Williams had MD as a top 10 program for over a decade.  It can surely be done again.
