Beckham could be out a little while.

Recommended Posts

It's a good thing the Orioles were "buyers" at the deadline last year and then moved Beckham to 3rd. It's worked out well.

Haven't seen the Sun article but I really hope we aren't looking at bringing Flaherty back. What an awful look that is.

I like him for his defensive versatility but he's not some super star utility man a-la Zobrist or Forsythe. He's a guy that can make a start here or there at any IF position and not embarrass you in the outfield. I suspect his hitting will fall off dramatically when NL pitchers realize he can't pick up on a decent breaking pitch.

edit: I see we've claimed Jace Peterson. I like the move.

Flaherty and Kakes 12th and 13th in NL batting. It's sort of touching.

Since there was some talk of dealing for Flash, I decided to watch him last night.  0-5, 3Ks, and GIDP that killed an Atlanta rally. He must have heard the trade talk and wanted to get back into the Os mode. Also 0-9 in his last two games. Avg fell 50 points. He' s headed in the right direction to fit in with the O's

It sounds like it went from "healed but still weak" to "sports hernia."

I say 2 days.

I had heard it was the Achilles that had been bothering him all this time.   And that the groin is new.

If only Manny would be open to the idea of shifting back to 3rd. We could then go out and sign JJ to a deal to play Shortstop. Yes I know the offense isn't all there, but our defense would immediately improve and let's be honest he would probably hit for a higher avg than Beckham.

I can't surely be the only one who had thought this.

It would probably be good for the team.
