I thought she did a good job. She's very natural at interviewing, which was her actual job. Hopefully for her she's on to bigger and better things.

She's an attractive, intelligent young lady who has the natural ability to talk on camera without prompts. I'm guessing she's going to end up just fine in a bigger market/scene.

So? Her chats were inane and interrupted the game. During the game I want to watch the game, not watch her chat with random fans, or players. That’s what post-game interviews are for. The radio and TV guys provide facts and color and that’s more than enough. She served no purpose and one can only hope the experiment is over.

So. Many. Jokes. Must. Not. Type.

Oh go ahead. You’ll feel better. Either way, she’s gone. Life goes on.

You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her. 

Best of luck to Sara. 

Ah so everyone's been saying shes the best part about the Orioles season because of her interviewing skills.

I mean honestly, intellectual contributions? Telling me that Davis has been working on his swing? The guys in the clubhouse are really getting along? 

Wish her the best, she seems like a wonderful person. I agree that we aren't at some horrible loss by not having a sideline reporter now.

It sounds like I'm probably going against the grain a bit, but I never really thought she brought much to the table in terms of insight. Basically just a pretty face holding a microphone. Her twitter feed / posts also seemed pretty superficial to me.  She always seemed to be promoting herself as much as she was the team. All that said I'm probably not being fair because in my mind I'm comparing her to to Britt Ghirolli who was extremely knowledgeable and an actual journalist.

Yep.  Too late to back away from that one Philip.

She was a sideline reporter and did a fine job of it.  I wish her the best at her next endeavor.  Hopefully there won't be too many Philips at her next stop.

Someone find me examples of sideline reporters bringing great contributions to the table.  It's almost always fluff or holding a microphone up for a coach who's going to talk in cliches.  They exist only to change it up a bit and give the broadcast a different feel at times.

She probably got a better opportunity then being a sideline reporter for the worse team in baseball. I agree though the timing is a bit weird since it's in the middle of a season, but I don't know if she had a contract similar to the broadcasters or not. 

 

I'm thinking NFL or college football. The timing works perfectly for leaving the team right now.

Let's not kid ourselves.  75-90% of these positions are filled by attractive women.  Baseball's main audience is men.   1+1=2.

The only time I think sideline reporters bring anything substantive is in basketball when they listen in to what the coaches say during timeouts and then report it when play resumes.    But as you say, just changing up the broadcast a little can have value even if no substance is really added.

I’m not backing away from anything, I think she was as intellectual as big bird. I don’t care, the only thing that really bothered me was the fact that she was frequently talking over gameplay, and her presence indicated and a lot of confidence in the actual product.

The time for interviews is after the game or before the game and not during the game.

But it doesn’t matter. She’s gone, and she will either be replaced with someone equally skilled, or not, and life goes on.

NFL and College Football season doesn't start for another month. Would it be that difficult to wait one more month before leaving?

    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
    • When I started this post I didn't know if twenty people would respond or a hundred. More have responded and with some good comments. I didn't say I think Hyde should be fired. I threw out the possibility with Elias terminating a lot of people in the organization. I don't think he will be replaced even though he does questionable things almost every game. The coaches are a different story.  I think several could be replaced and possibly our advance scouts and if Hyde is like most managers he won't replace them. It will have to be Elias who makes the needed changes. Will he ? It looks like Detroit will get the number 1 pick.  I think they are 3 1/2 behind us with 10 to go. 7 vs the White Sox and 3 vs the Twins. We have 3 with Seattle, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Boston. We could lose them all and so could Detroit.  This is going to be hard to predict.  Number 2 is still okay.
    • ^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.
    • Just watched the replay, and timed it.   If he had IMMEDIATELY thrown the ball back in instead of beating his chest, it might have saved 2-3 seconds.  Tonight's game lasted 10,380 seconds according to the box score.   So at the very worst the "celebration" added 0.02% to the time of the game.  Even if a game had 50 such celebrations, it would add roughly 2 minutes to the gametime. One pitching change probably takes 30-50 times longer than the "celebration". You can dislike it all you want, but trying to say it slows down the game is an absolutely absurd stretch of logic to try to support your point.  
    • My 3: Get rid of Davis. He isn't a ML capable player anymore. The money is a sunk cost. Bite the bullet and cut him loose. Find some pitching. Doesn't have to be expensive or flashy. Just a few guys that can get more outs. Tighten up the D. Again, not expensive or flashy, just a bit above average. Next year is year 2 of the rebuild so I'll be patient. These would be prudent goals for now.
    • Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
