Buck lays into Mountcastle during "reassignment to minor camp" and possible new position?

I’m inclined to think Buck has those kinds of talks. Especially since he regularly visits minor league affiliates throughout the year. 

Buck isn’t the kind of manager that calls out players unless it’s warranted. It’s what makes him such a strong players’ manager.

The other thing is that young, relatively high draft picks require life lessons when warranted lest they go through life almost with a silver spoon a la Manziel.

Right, regularly, since he has so much dead time during the season. 🙄

He probably gets out to 50 or more games a year..oh wait, I'm guessing it's more like five.

Buck doesn't call out his guys.  He's more willing to call out a Mountcastle or a Kim.

As for life lessons, care to give me some examples of when he did it other high draft picks?  Where was Manny's life lesson?  A good time might have been when he threw the bat.

Buck certainly calls out his guys where appropriate. He had a particularly loaded interview recently about Chris Davis. Hell, prior to the O's resigning him...don't you recall him saying "How much is enough?" to the media.

But it's fairly obvious once you've made it to the show and have a rapport w/ Buck, he has a different way of handling things with them. As well he should. They've earned the respect, the history. We don't know what's happened behind closed doors with Mountcastle. Do you legitimately think Buck doesn't talk to the minor league coaches? That he doesn't have a full writeup of Mountcastle's overall attitude? That's all part of the package when trying to assess if Buck is acting inappropriately. I'm inclined to trust Buck here.

I stand by my original statement that young/new players, especially those with a bit of cockiness to them need extra...attention, so to speak. Have we heard Showalter call out Mancini? Chance Sisco? 

I don't know why you can't give Buck Showalter the benefit of the doubt when it comes to certain players. Is it possible that Mountcastle is a cocky, high draft pick, young kid who needs some life lessons?

Buck could chew out the entire squad daily at this point and it wouldn’t make much difference imo. Yelling and berating them isn’t going to change their inability to score runs or suddenly have a better bullpen. They are way beyond that as a solution. I seriously think this is the worst Orioles offense I’ve seen since we had sluggers like Brook Fordyce, Geronimo Gil, Craig Worthington,  Delino Deshields, and Glenn Davis.

This is a thread about a minor leaguer. And his improvements.  Not those veterans that are gone at the end of the season, like Buck.

I stumbled upon this thread and felt compelled to see how much of a difference Buck's 'talk' had with Ryan back in 2017.  His walks went up from 17 to 26 in 2018.  Not a lot it seems.  🙂

    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass 
    • 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 💯.
