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

Sorry but I disagree with you. 

This is a level-headed response, not like the thin-skinned ones. But help me understand: do you disagree that Hyde will be gone from the organization by the time the Orioles are playoff contenders again? Or do you disagree about seeing managers go after players for missing scoops of throwing errors? Or do you disagree with both?

If he hits 0 HR between now and the expiration of his contract, or if he hits 150 HR, we will be spending the same money. The money is a fixed cost of doing business. He is not a MLB player any more. He’s taking a job from a more deserving player. The team will be improved by his absence. This is an easy call. A dust up with the manager is meaningless to the larger problem, that ownership/management is pretending that they’re salvaging something of value from his awful contract by having him attend the games.

What did he dog? A foul ball? What? 

Several plays in question. Foul ball that landed in the first row, missed scoop that he failed to chase down, and receiving a toss with a nonchalant catch. (I only saw the first, just reporting what others have said).

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.

When Hyde initiated the interaction, he had to have known to expect the response he received. If not, he is painfully unaware of human dynamics and is thus ill-equipped to be a manager of people in any walk of life.

It wasn't just that one play. It was a series of lazy plays. 

Just to further my point from earlier. Critiques happen in the dugout all the time. Last night after David Hess came in and David Hessed another Homer over the wall, Brocail came and talked to him. I have seen that countless times this year but Hess takes it, because as bad as he is, he wants to get better.

We don't know what Hyde said to Davis. The camera picked up the conversation after they were already yelling at each other. If Hyde had calmly said hey tighten it up a bit out there and then Davis took offense to it, leading to them yelling at each other, would you be more likely to side with Hyde?

What, you want Hunter to continue his Bagdad Bob approach and take over for Hyde in the press conferences? 

Obviously, I agree...

I get your point.  However, you're not asked every day to publicly comment on how your shift went.   Captain Obvious knows the team is giving up way too many HRs.    Other than painting a picture of rainbows and unicorns, worthy of Jim Hunter,  what is he supposed to say after 11 HRs in 2 games? Maybe he can borrow the old baseball axioms:


"Well, we ran into a buzzsaw the last two nights"
"Our guys just didn't have it."
"Nothing comes easy in the A.L. East"
"Gotta' tip your cap to those Yankees hitters."
"I'm proud of the effort by our hitters"

O's fan take - WTH, they're getting beat by Kyle Higashioka (who?) for 2 HRs.  
Hunter's take - Judge was a mere 2-11, 0 HRs, 1 RBI, this series
O's fan take - The O's gave up a MLB record 16 HRs and were outscored 32-12

While taking our lumps, the idea is to find some young players who can be a part of the future.  They don't need a veteran dogging it, setting a bad example.

The calls that Hyde be fired or that he is a fill-in are ridiculous.  I don't understand it at all.  Hyde has progressed from being in Davis' corner to getting tired of it.  I think any manager would have reacted the same.  To the "you do it behind closed doors" folks, do you honestly think this hasn't been done multiple times over?  As the leader of the team, how can you lead, when one player refuses all season to listen to anything you or your staff suggest to him? What does that say to the other players on the team?   

Players I've spoken to who have played under Hyde have praised him.  I think this has been a boiling point and I'd be willing to bet that what Hyde said wasn't "attacking" in some immature way that is being suggested.  I don't believe Hyde has called any players out by name which is a sign of good leadership.  When he starts calling people out by name is when I'll consider he has no place being the manager.  Davis has been dogged by everyone for 2 years now, I wouldn't be surprised if this is just the straw that broke the camel's back. 

Also, seriously with the veteran thing? Nine years of MLB time and a $20M/year contract and you deserve the right to have your safe space?!?

You just really have no idea how leadership and communication works in a competitive sports environment, let alone a professional one. That's the main problem with your stance. This isn't an office environment. You are the painfully unaware party here.

If Chris Davis is too thin-skinned to get called out on his poor effort from his coach, then he needs to be gone ASAP.

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

You are totally wrong on this. IMO These players are not children. They are adults. You mean Davis can’t take it from his boss because it hurt his feelings? Or it embarrassed him? So what? He is an adult. You take things as an adult. If he can’t then he needs to grow some balls and put on his big boy pants.

Yes, if that had been what was said, i would be more likely to side with Hyde.

But not one of us was in the dugout, so the anger I have seen in so many replies to this thread seems baseless. I get it: people hate Davis so much that it determines their viewpoint, with no possible nuance of what may have happened. They hate Davis and his contract and it colors their viewpoint.  I want Davis gone, too. I never would have signed him to that contract years ago. But I am not going to side with a manager who provokes a player, especially not one who has never shown a bit of anger in his playing career. Even last night was about the least angry dust-up between a manager and a player I have ever seen. Davis never even got his arms above his waist and stopped after one step. This has gotten blown way out of proportion.

I have a feeling, though, that the tone that Brocail took with Hess and the content of their conversation does not resemble what Hyde said to start the altercation with Davis. I have a strong feeling that what Hyde said was personally insulting, at minimum, and was not just a suggestion to "tighten it up a little."

You set an example, no matter how it's done.  Dave Roberts/the Dodgers have benched guys at least twice his year for not running out ground balls to first.  There is no mystery, every player and fan knows why he was benched and after the game, the player admitted Roberts was right and he needs to do a better job hustling.  Why should this be any different?

You were not in the dugout and have no idea what you are talking about. 

I have a feeling that only one of us has held numerous positions managing people and it is not you.

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.

Huh? Dude, deep breath. Find your safe space and then go back and reread what he wrote, because if you think what he said was "challenging you to a fight," it's becoming clearer why you think the way you do about this Davis incident.

No one is posturing or threatening any type of violence. I was calling you out for your ridiculous take on this situation. And the irony is that you're the one defending the person who wanted to get physical.At this point it's pretty clear that you're trolling and I'm done taking the bait.

    • Just in time, the AFL season starts today.    As a reminder, this year the O’s players are on the Surprise Saguaros, and include: Rylan Bannon Cody Carroll Dean Kremer  David Lebron  Mason McCoy Alex Wells  With Austin Hays joining once the major league season ends.   Kyle Moore (Delmarva’s manager) is serving as one of the coaches. The regular season runs through October 25.    I’m looking forward to having some more box scores to read!
    • Was Mancini bad enough last year to be in the running for national comeback player of the year?
    • I don't think this was a case of players and coaches overlooking Temple or letting the big wins get to their head, this was a case of a QB who struggled under the first pressure he saw and awful play calling, particularly in the red zone.  The fact that Temple tried to give them the game twice and the awful play calling kept trying to stuff it up the middle, when they have Piggy, McFarland and Leake. Are you telling me that anyone here thinks if they had spread out the defense, put Piggy in shotgun with McFarland and Leake that they don't think they could get a yard with a option play? My biggest concern is that the game calling is always going to be this unimaginative and awful in the red zone when the line is going to be dominated. Good coordinators understand their weakness and strengths and play to their strengths in personnel and don't try the cookie cutter old school approach. I'm also concerns that Jackson will continue to struggle when he pressured. He's not very mobile back there and once he was under pressure his decision making and accuracy dropped off significantly. That's a yellow flag for me. This game was a giant let down because they had an opportunity to go under a Nationally televised game ranked against Penn State but instead, looked like the same old Terp football program that shrinks as soon as it as a chance to shine. I also have concerns that Locksley did not over rule the play calls and also went for that awful two-point conversion. Had they gone for field goal and made it, the Terps could have gone ahead with a field goal instead of being stuffed twice on the goal line in the 4th QTR. It was one game, and people can improve and learn, but what I saw was a coaching staff and quarterback that appeared to be over their heads in their first real test of adversity.  Now if they can come out and play a good close game against Penn State it might heal some things, but only a win would erase this debacle.
    • My vote goes to all of the fans who actually watched a lot of the O's games on the tube.  Even if the games were used as 'background noise' while you were doing something a lot more pleasurable.  2 thumbs up.  
    • He has certainly hit for more power since coming back from AAA. Not sure if he tweaked something of if he's just running into more pitches, but the power increase has been the biggest difference in hitting of late. If the power is for real, and I'm not sure that it is until I hear he's changed some kind of approach, then he has a chance to stick around for awhile at 3B. He's still a below average 3B overall and will not to have a consistent jump in production to be considered a nugget towards a winning team in the future.
    • I think it clearly Mancini. Especially with the way the AS game went for him and it’s also a comeback year for him. I’d be very surprised if it were anyone else. Though Means and Villar would be solid choices if chosen. 
    • Whoever has the highest WAR. 🙄
