Bruce Cunningham talks about the Orioles for 15 minutes

Recommended Posts

He says here that Jones turned down a deal to the Phils on Friday or Saturday and that Jones wants to stay here for the remainder of the year to see after his charity.

I love AJ, and he has every right to veto the deal, but the fact that he cares more about his charity then the chance to go play for a contender makes me wonder if that's a part of the team's problems.

Sorry but not sorry.  I get he cares about his charity.  And it's laudable that he does.  But this team has checked out mentally this year, and I think that's an example of it.  You can't tell me he doesn't have someone that can handle things for him locally while he provides input from Philadelphia.  I'm not saying it's the main reason, but rather a bunch of things like this that add up.

Seems to me AJ has his head on straight. AJ seems like a wonderful human being. For him caring more about his charity than going to play for a contender for the rest of the season tells me all I need to know about him. Putting others over oneself is pretty damn special in my book. 

He's a great guy, no doubt at all about that.  But sometimes, as an owner or GM, you want the guy who puts baseball first in situations such as this.

It sounds like he’s acting like a jackass this evening.

If he wants to stay here for the community and his charity, just say so, instead of being Mr. Toughguy in his post game interview.

I don’t think it’s anybody’s business to judge Adam Jones’ decision.    It’s personal to him and if he prefers to stay, that’s his right.    He’s been an absolute warrior for us and Team USA, and I would never, ever doubt his competitiveness.     I do think he may regret his decision now that DD has traded more key pieces away.    But maybe not.    It’s up to him.   

His profession exists for the sole purpose of allowing less talented individuals to talk about his performance and decisions.

I think it's fine for anyone to have an opinion on it.  And I've said before, he's earned that right.  I'm not trying to slam him for it.  I'm just saying that this team, for various reasons, has checked out mentally, resulting in the play that has led to a 30-70 whatever record.  I think it's fair to wonder if that's a contributing factor.

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
