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?

    • I've really enjoyed the prospect lists. The prospect lists are my favorite thing to look forward too. There's so few sites that offer such great information about organizational prospects especially many that aren't on many of the top lists. I'm really interested to see Welk in his first full season and how quickly the organization pushes him given his age. Also, I wonder if they think about moving Blaine Knight who I think is probably too small to move forward as a starter and Hanifee to the pen? I really hope that Hanifee who is a local kid who grew up in Cecil before moving to Virginia takes a step forward next year.
    • I've been intrigued by Cotton. IIRC, I believe Gagnon is close to signing with a Korean team.
    • I would say Hernaiz, but Tony was so high on him that he is already pretty high up the list.  If Stauffer comes out next year and shows he can hold his stuff and perform as a starter, he's basically Kremer with a better changeup. So that'd be a jump. McLarty or Welk are potential jumpers, McLarty could easily to come out a throw 92-95 with average or better command and a solid 3 pitch mix as a starter, that would part him in as a #5 SP projection. Which would put him as a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Welk could show he is an average glove at 3B, 55 hit, 45 power, that's probably a second division 3B, a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Fenter is kind of a similar skill set as Baumann (curve instead of slider out pitch) but a little less stuff, so if he moves fast and performs he could be Baumann with a little more age and relief risk. That's a 45. I won't list guys off the 30 because I don't want to spoil a future article, but needless to say there are plenty of potential jumpers there. To respond to @Frobby's post, when I sent my personal 30 to Tony to start the process of integrating our thoughts, I included 20 guys that I had in the same tier as the last 4 guys on my 30. My tiers are a little different than the final list. 
    • Also it is amazing that we lost our pitching and bullpen coach because Brady thought they were the reason Wright wasn’t succeeding. 
    • I predict he gets shelled in the KBO.  He is no Tyler Wilson. 
    • I don’t see that at all.  
    • Buck was making something like 4 million a year.  Hyde probably makes several million less than that. Elias probably makes less than DD.  Brady’s salary is gone.  I am sure they are highly profitable. When the Astros were tanking they were most profitable team in MLB.
