I wouldn't be surprised if Manny gets thrown at again tomorrow after this rant.

That will be the brawl.  Again, hoping for health.

Ugh him and the quote about taking the bat to the mound is going to cost him if it ends up happening, as they can easily point to it being premeditated. .

I was thinking the same thing.. really hope he doesn't do that, I don't think he would.

Well at least we know tomorrow's broadcast is going to set an Orioles tv Wednesday night record. Seems it will all hit the fan tomorrow.

I don't think O's pitchers will be hitting anyone. If this is going to continue, it will be coming from the Sox pitchers again.

That's the worst part! It's Ubaldo tomorrow. :P Who knows where his pitches are going? Certainly not him.

Good for Manny.

What the Red Sox are doing is chickensh1t.

 

You get one maybe two chances to drill a guy for a perceived dirty play (it's already been discussed that it wasn't even dirty and Pedroia said as much).

 

They've now thrown at him directly 5 times including one at his knees and one at his head.

 

It is totally inexcusable and the league needs to put an end to this crap by suspending players and Ferrell or we need to start drilling guys in the skull too.

 

Enough is enough.

I don't think they will, at least intentionally. But this seems to have gotten to a point where any accident could be taken with malice and all bets are off.

 

Plus the Red Sox are calling up Kyle Kendrick to replace Wright (for one of the games). Definitely not an integral piece that will be missed if he gets suspended.

Oh man.. I forgot he's starting. Well, it'll be interesting then.

I was raised to act with class and turn the other cheek. I have coached for 15 years and that's what I tell my teams. But, when you run out of cheeks and are still getting attacked for no reason whatsoever, a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do. When they are throwing at your head time after time, that is life threatening.  The O's are being backed into a corner. Personally, if I was Buck.  I'd tell Manny, next time it happens, stay at home plate because the entire dugout is charging the mound...

That's kinda what Manny was ranting about. "If you're going to hit me JUST FREAKIN' HIT ME!" Then it would be over.

While I agree with the sentiment, saying what Manny said is only going to hurt him. I just hope first people out are protecting Manny from doing something really stupid.

What you say is true, yet it completely misses the point Manny was making.

Respect to Manny for keeping his cool between the lines.

Total bush league by Sale and Farrell. If anybody believed Farrell didn't order ERod and Barnes to throw at Manny, this is all you need to know at this point.

Joe Torre is a joke. And MLB is a joke for not handling this better. Barnes should have been suspended a month. Sale should have been ejected immediately. How they're going to claim to take these situations seriously and then lose a reliever for a few games is beyond me. In the end, Sale got away with one and Asher and the O's have to pay. Just asinine.

Who said it was Manny's fault? What is wrong with your reading comprehension.

    • 2021 midseason moves will probably be crazy.   The whiffing in the NYP suggests a conservative initial assignment, but also one where hopefully he's Barry Bonds grown man to the children he'll be playing with.  A good Stowers '21 I think pushes through three levels; two is making par, maybe.
    • From the underrated guitarist department...  
    • I saw Stowers multiple games with Aberdeen in Brooklyn in 2019.  He just glides across the OF in large strides (which makes it all the more impressive that Janvrin pushed Stowers to RF - which gave the Aberdeen pitchers two OFers who could track down everything that possibly could be tracked down).  As I posted at the time, we sat with Mark Dashbach's father and had to cheer for our three Stanford guys with him.   I hope what the Os saw with Stower's swing is fixable because there's a big hit risk here for a second rounder IMO.  This pick has the downside of the OF equivalent of a Cadyn Grenier.  It would be an enormous boost to our OFers at the bottom of the system if Stowers turns into the player the Os envisioned when drafted.
    • This is really good. Sideys from something I was listening. I saw Edgar, right near here in Chambersburg. Very excellent! Don't know what event that was, Ringo introducing.
    • That's a good way to look at it honestly. Stowers is certainly a projection guy with a decent ceiling, but he has a high risk profile on whether he can get there or not.
    • I would guess 162. I doubt we see full stadiums any time soon, but they should be able to play games and draw TV revenue now that testing is already set up and more is known about the disease. 
    • From Sportico: The World Series has been attended by close to 11,500 fans a game, but those numbers are not enough to offset revenue losses if that’s the maximum number attending games next season. Due to the surging pandemic in the U.S. and Canada, ballparks in New York and California would still be closed to fans in 2021 because of state health and safety rules. “I think the one thing we’ve learned is that COVID is a really unpredictable virus,” Manfred said. “We don’t know what’s next. But at this point it’s just impossible to speculate what next year’s going to look like. We’ll just have to get closer and then we’ll make the best decisions we can.” https://www.sportico.com/leagues/baseball/2020/mlb-debt-2020-manfred-1234615474/
