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

Hyde made some comments to the media yesterday about how the Orioles pitching in particular needs to improve. I didn't see it as throwing the team under the bus. It might be a little harsh for today's ball player, but Hyde did not call out any player by name. 

Nothing but the truth.  Its hard to find much positive to say about our pitching.

What is Hyde expecting, max effort for a mere $23 mill/yr?  I want to see Davis go after a baseball while hitting, the way he went after Hyde.

Ha yes if Davis was only that aggressive attacking the opposing pitchers.

Hyde downplaying the incident as just your typical disagreement. He is handling it well and covering for Davis, but this was far from typical. 

Keeping it “in house”.

Because of tonight's missed throw? I think that is doubtful here. Maybe for other reasons but not for a missing a shitty throw.

We probably will never know why....I haven't bashed Davis, but this is probably long overdue.  I loved Belanger as a kid, who was a beast in the field, but couldn't hit s***.  But he wasn't making $23 million a year either.

I know you're not supposed to criticize ball players today to the press under any circumstances, but I don't think it was that bad. Hyde wasn't calling out individual players, that is a line you don't cross.

It was a low throw right at him. Any competent first baseman makes that play. Davis didn't even get a glove on it. The other play was bad as well. First basemen get low throws they have to scoop all the time. The ball was thrown right at him.

That is what is called a "throwing error."

I think these are the quotes they're referring to. 

 

Yeah, a couple of guys beat you to it earlier upthread. Thanks. Interesting read.

He misplayed the throw and walked to the ball.

that is not Ok with Hyde.

With the Villar throw Davis could have stretched out more, but I think the popup that landed in the front row is what set Hyde off. Davis barely looked interested in making an attempt to catch that ball.

He's not wrong. We have a long way to go.

He's not wrong. But I don't see how his comments are going to encourage the current players on this team to try their best when their manager is straight up saying that they aren't good enough to compete.

Straight up, the manager is the manager. He's in charge. It's completely understandable for him to be frustrated, but you don't vent publicly. Because you're the manager. You're supposed to be the leader, set the example, and be in charge.
