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

Recommended Posts

Perhaps this has been covered already but I view this incident as our GM's first big moment to make it clear what this new organization is all about and that this type of behavior will not be tolerated now or ever . I really hope they come down and come down hard on Davis.

The guys on 105.7 FM said that Hyde asked Davis if he could at least hit his weight. I should've posted it here and not the other thread.

I don't know the value of the information.

I'm thinking that was probably a joke. And Davis has lost a enough muscle where he might be hitting his weight now.

That would be an incredibly improper thing for Hyde to say.    Not sure I’m buying it.

You could give Hyde the benefit of the doubt here and just chalk it up to frustration, but Hyde shows some generally poor leadership qualities. From his post-game pressers and now to this, it just reeks of bravado.

This team is awful, we all know that. But my goodness, Hyde pales in comparison to true leaders like Buck.

The thing about that Davis situation, what do you gain by saying crap that is sure to spark a response in front of the cameras? Unless Hyde truly has tried everything with Davis and just lost it, but even still. It just doesn’t come across well.

Even when Buck had an awful team, I’ve never seen this. I thought Trembley was a so-so leader, but Hyde makes him look like Buck in comparison.

Somehow Buck is now the paragon of what it means to be a good manager? I feel like I live on a different planet to some people.

What specifically do you mean?  Are there other instances you're thinking of? Is it just the comment about the pitching? Earl Weaver was a pretty successful leader by any measure but no one would accuse  him of having a good check on his temper.  

He's probably referring to his talking about how bad the umpiring was in his Monday postgame and how bad our pitching is in his Tuesday night postgame.  Both 100% true but most managers are not that open and blunt.

I'll take Hyde giving criticism instead of the usual bullsh*t of "I like my guys" despite them under performing and giving little effort.

Somebody on mlbtraderumors wrote that Hyde was never in any danger because if Davis has swung at him he would have missed.  Another guy wrote that most umpires punch Davis out at least once or twice a night.  Wish I could take credit for these but I can't.  😁

At the end of the day, there is no punishment for Davis for his actions, I think that is very wrong.

Buck was an excellent manager.    Three time manager of the year, including for us in 2014.     Love the guy.   

That said, his time here was over, and I’m very satisfied with the job Hyde is doing under very difficult circumstances.     The positives outweigh the negatives by a wide margin IMO.     He’s not perfect, and neither was Buck or any manager.

He was a great manager for the type of team that we were, I just never wanted us to be driven by that old school mentality.

Nope, for those of us 50 years or older, that's still Earl.

Did anyone post this?

Evidently Smash Mouth has an opinion.

Someone needs to shut up and sing All Star.

I was going to try to make an Every Morning reference but then I found out that was Sugar Ray and not Smashmouth. 

I'm so embarrassed.

Buck actually made some strides from the days when he was canned by TX and AZ. He used to be overbearing and it ran thin on many of the guys he managed. By the time he got to Baltimore he had some years in between to reflect and be a little looser in the clubhouse (ping pong and setting up O’Day on camera come to mind). 

Buck changed the culture and I’ll always appreciate how he turned things around in relatively short order, but the loyalty thing with the vets (including Davis last year and allegedly campaigning for the contract) just had run its course. Not to mention potentially one of the biggest managing blunders in a playoff game ever.

I don’t know if Hyde is just a placeholder and I don’t agree with some of what he’s done, but putting Davis in his place if he threw something or making the comment after Davis threw something AFTER a lackadaisical defensive effort does nothing to diminish him in my view.
