Michael Rucker and Fredi Gonzalez on Hot Stove

Recommended Posts

Interesting that Fredi Gonzalez is not an analytics guy.   That seem unusual for  O's coaches these days.   He appears to bave been hired for his management experience and friendship with Hyde to be a bench coach without the title.

Anything else notable?   I assume Roch will regurgitate some quotes at some point.

Gonzalez role sounds pretty undefined and wide ranging.   In about a week Hyde is to meet with his coaches and talk about responsibilities moving forward.   Gonzalez said he is there to help Hyde avoid the mistakes that Gonzalez made as he learned about managing.   In turn he said that he would learn from Hyde about analytics.

Rucker said he was told to prepare to be a starter last season before ST and right before the season he was put in the pen.  Sounds like it was a shock to his psyche.  It took him a while to recover according to the way he spoke about it.    Naturally he says he is ready to do whatever the O's want.

I still don't understand why we didn't keep Bobby Dickerson.  It really doesn't matter though, because it's not like we have any young infielders that he really could've helped.  

Gonzalez seems like he's here because he was too good of a hire to pass up on.  He might not fit the analytics model, but he's got experience managing teams through tough periods.  We're definitely going through a tough period.

You might need to explain to people under 30 that those icons are symbols for "telephones".

    • I'm beginning to wonder if they'll play a single game this season. I'm also starting to get a bit stir crazy. It's amazing how much smaller your home feels when you spend the majority of the time inside. I'm also a bit jealous of pet owners. This would be a great time to have a dog. Can I temporarily adopt one online and have it delivered? 😆 How is everyone else doing? Working from home? Making trips to the grocery store? Those trips are feeling more and more tenuous by the minute. I really feel for those employees. I'd really like to see ALL stores put a restriction on the number of customers they allow in the store at one time for the sake of the employees. People can't police themselves on their own or restrain from overspending / hoarding supplies. If they have to wait in line maybe they'll think twice about making three trips to the store in a week. 
    • Funny, I didn’t remember Snyder being that good against us.    I think I had him on my fantasy team once during his good years. I certainly remember how Kinsler owned us throughout his career.  
    • What are you talking about?  MLB isn't public school or private school.  It is its own business.  You are essentially comparing apples with hammers.  As to the government not allowing them to play, there is a USG social distancing policy right now through April 30th.  It is not a law.  In some states it has been but not all.  NBA and NHL are looking to do the move to central locations and quarantine players while playing in closed environments.  If MLB wanted, they could send the teams to a state that is not on lockdown order and start playing today.  That is not going to happen because of several reasons, one being that that state will soon be on lockdown.   I did not say they will start up now, but your saying schools are closed therefore baseball is shot is a stupid analogy was my point.  They could play today, but obviously won't happen.  I would be okay with them starting in quarantined sites to empty stadiums.  It is weird.  It was weird watching WWE, which I have resorted to to get some sports in my system.  And it was weird to watch UFC.  Will be again if UFC 249 occurs, but it's better that than watching the news or ESPN re-playing games and having "family movie nights."
    • Well here's a Jackson quote about playing for Earl. "Reggie Jackson only played one season for Weaver but said: “I loved the little Weave. If you made a mental mistake, you saw him waiting for you on the top step of the dugout when you came back in. He’d just say one word, ‘Why?’ And you better have an answer. On his team, if you didn’t ‘think the game,’ you had a problem. He was right in your face.”
    • Not good if true. But many tests give false positives and negatives.      
    • As long as the pandemic remains unchecked, the economy is going to suffer either way, whether people are social distancing or not. If everyone goes back to work while coronavirus is still running rampant, making people sick and killing people, that doesn't help anyone. We certainly all want this to be over, but you can't rush anything. I don't think July 1 is a feasible start date for MLB unless the testing capabilities are so plentiful that you could test every player (and coach, staffer, TV crew worker, etc.) every single day. Otherwise there's nothing preventing a player from getting the virus and unknowingly spreading it to the rest of his team. Even if it is possible for players to get back to action, I don't see any way you could have fans in attendance anytime in 2020, barring a vaccine miraculously being ready sometime this summer.
