Why did Davis go after Hyde? He was not happy.

Age means absolutely nothing when you're as terrible as Davis. Nothing. He is the very definition of dead weight and serves no purpose, on the field or in the clubhouse. I mean, what "veteran" message was he trying to send last night? That it's ok to take a swing at the manager? 

Or the "veteran" message that it's ok to start doggin' it when you are getting crushed by the Yankees for the third straight game? A real quality veteran wouldn't be doing that stuff.

Maybe Hyde was trying to make a point and send a message to the team that EVERYONE is accountable for their actions (or lack there of). It's not like he called Davis out during his presser to the media. What happened was no different then him calling out him out during a team meeting. If Davis didn't like what he heard then as they say don't let the door hitcha where the good lord spltcha. 

Huge difference, team meeting is behind closed doors. Pulling a player aside and saying hey what's up with that or this while in the dugout is different then saying something and walking away.

Leadership is about admitting when you are wrong.  Trust me, not a fan of Davis, but doing that to any player with 9 plus years in MLB shows a lack of respect to the player. 

 

Like I said they could've gone down the stairs and he could have said his peace. 

You are quite correct when you say that leadership includes admitting fault, but Brandon is not at fault here. Davis has been at fault for three years. He’s been lazy and it’s obvious, he’s made no change and it’s obvious, he’s been slacking and it’s obvious and he’s been horrible. It is Embarrassing to all of baseball  that’s such a blatantly bad performance is allowed to continue. There are other really terrible contracts in baseball Detroit has one in Cabrera, California has one, whoever has Granderson has one, but those guys aren’t being lazy. They’re not slacking. They are just bad because they’re old, and that’s not their fault. Davis is slacking and everybody knows it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with calling him out. Lots of other guys should be called out for various reasons, but there’s nothing wrong in this instance: the only thing I find fault with was walking away. Hyde should’ve said his piece and then stood his ground.

Still no one in this entire thread who knows when the foul ball took place or who was hitting at the time? For some reason when I watch the replay in the 4th the camera wasn’t panning away from the Yankee hitters after a foul ball.

The other non-scoop play didn’t seem egregious, but again, after he misses the ball I can’t see what happened after and if he was lazy as he went after it.

Hardly anyone is watching the games these days. I did see the play with my own eyes but what registered with me was Davis' lack of effort, not the hitter and situation. Looking at the play by play data, I am going to guess it was one of those foul balls that Urshela hit in the 4th but I really can't be sure. Might have been Valera in the 3rd.

A player that was physically doggin it on the field? Nope, I disagree. You address in front of the team to let everyone know that is not going to be tolerated by him no matter who you are. Everyone should be treated the same. 

But you do it in team meetings, not in front of tv cameras.

It is possible that the nice approach has been taken before.

I'm with you 100% Tony. You served in the military right? How would it have gone over if you tried to physically attack your superior officer? These anti-Hyde / defending Davis takes are pure garbage. And yes I'm looking your straight in the eyes @Beef Supreme

This is your idea of macho posturing, I guess: suggesting you are challenging me to a fight. When you disagree with something someone says, you threaten physical violence over the internet. Grow Up. Or better yet, go ahead and take a poke at those eyes you see reflected in your monitor.

What did he dog? A foul ball? What?

Re: Hyde - I think there is validity to different management styles. Some might want to say things out in the dugout to send a message/teach/etc.  Others might like to keep the criticism away from the camera, or out of the open.  And it's pretty fair to say that both ways can be effective. I have no problem with Hyde over this.

 

However - I don't think going after the manager and having to be physically restrained is an acceptable response. No matter what was said (and it had to be pretty rough to cause that reaction). Still - that can't be how you handle the situation. And I'm not sure leaving the ballpark (or being unavailable after the game?) helps your position either. Not a good night for Davis.

What would Elias' role be, short of releasing Davis or firing Hyde?

Why fire the Manager? He is the problem. Davis is. IMO

Doesn't matter which team or which firstbaseman, no manager is justified in attacking a player for missing a throwing error. I can't even recall seeing a manager attack a firstbaseman for missing a scoop until Hyde.

Last night proved to me what I had been thinking all along: whenever the Orioles are playoff contenders again, Hyde will not be in the organization. Hyde is a placeholder only, like nearly all of the 25-man roster.

Sorry but I disagree with you.

Hyde verbally attacked Davis, clearly. Otherwise, Davis would not have reacted.

Also, Davis never touched Hyde, so it can not be described as committing "physical violence," as some have said.

So by your logic, charging at a manager and having to be restrained isn't "physical violence" but saying something to someone is "verbally attacking." Bad take

I know Chris Davis isn't exactly popular - but it's never a good sign when a manager is saying something that causes one of his players to try and fight him. Say what you will about Davis, but he's never struck me as a hot head. This is not normal behavior for him.

The O's are getting their butts handed to them during this series. It's the manager's job to keep everyone's heads up through the storm. Between Hyde throwing the team under the bus, venting to the media, and now this - I really am starting to doubt Hyde.

If you have this take, which is a solid one, why did you upvote a take that bashed Hyde?

For the bolded part. I didn't like what he said about our pitching publicly, even though I know it's true. I think Hyde's on tilt a little right now. He's frustrated that he's not getting talented guys to work with, but he's lost perspective that this is what this year's about.

I probably shouldn't have upvoted it though. I'm not doubting Hyde, but I really didn't like the public comments about the pitching.

I was asking Tony the question, not advocating. I am definitely not in favor of firing the manager over this.

You're getting called out for having a garbage take on the situation... nobody challenged you to a fight. Seems to be a pattern, you also claim that Hyde "attacked" Davis by calling him out. You won't find your safe space here.
