I don’t get these cocky minor leaguers who act like they can try to disregard advise or wisdom from major league managers they need to impress. Just seems like a total lack of emotional intelligence if I put it nicely or utter stupidity if I say what I really think! Maybe it’s just a millennial thing where their parents always told them whatever they did was fine, but that doesn’t work well in professional sports where you are competing with other talented individuals who understand the value of listening to what proven experts tell you.  Makes me wonder before they draft these high round picks if they do any analysis of their emotional intelligence, attitude towards coaching and willingness to work hard and accept valuable constructive criticism. If they aren’t doing so, they are making a big mistake imo.

Forgive me mods, but this is BS!

I agree with your sentiment, just edited per forum rules.

If you are referring to the original subject of the thread, maybe Mountcastle had just seen "Buck's guys" play. How could you take him seriously after spending time in camp with this cast of characters?

Well said!

C'mon.  If you take that away from Old Fan, he's not Old Fan anymore.  

P.S.  I took a 3 year old to the game earlier this year.

If we did not ban him for good then, I guess we have him for the duration.

Not that I’m commenting unfavorably on your comment, but isn’t that sort of off topic on this thread? Just asking a question...but I would be more than happy to engage again in discussion about this subject - taking babies to baseball games. I have a 4 year old grandson now and he is the most precious thing in the world too me!!

I am really happy that this happened to you and I am glad you are blessed with the opportunity to change in the twilight of your years.

I was just kidding.  I actually pretty much agree with you on this topic. I spent half of one game at that damn playground and bounce house with a little one.  Sometimes you really want to go to a game and don't have any other options.  OK sorry to derail the thread.

Thanks Weams, just took him to Ocean City and he rode the small kids rides (teacup and carousel) and picked up ducks and netted fish for prizes and he loved it! Haven’t taken him to an Os game yet as he wouldn’t grasp any of it and would want to leave early.

No problem, figured you were more of a friend and posted that in jest. I understand too when your options are limited with small kids as they must come first as a parent or grandparent.

Oh no. They have a much better playground there for him. You would just have to play with him. And stay with him. He'd stay interested in that. Plus, he gets in free! You buy a 12 dollar ticket, he gets in free. Give him the candy you bring in for free. Give him the cup of free ice they give you. Buy him the $1.50 hot dog and the 50 cent chips.  Grandpa is the greatest man on earth. Or that ever existed. That's how the whole thing works.

    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
    • There was definitely reporting that the defect was congenital and, I believe, present in both knees.   I don’t remember if the “when, not if” discussion was a reported opinion of doctors, or board speculation.   And, I don’t know if a doctor would recommend preemptive surgery even if the doctor thought the other knee would blow eventually.   The Tatis situation really does seem like wishful thinking on his part.   Five dislocations in one season?   I doubt exercises are going to fix that.   I remember Chris Webber had a problem with recurring shoulder dislocations and tried to avoid the knife but eventually had to do the surgery.
