The wording of the release.
Sentence one: They won't bring back Flores.
Sentence two: Brocail not returning.
It is pretty clear by the first sentence that the Orioles decided not to bring back Flores, the second sentence is not so clear.
Just the wording of it. Perhaps I'm looking into that too much.
#orioles won't bring back third base coach Jose Flores. And pitching coach Doug Brocail not returning, per sources.
Why specify it that way instead of: #orioles won't bring back third base coach Jose Flores or pitching coach Doug Brocail.
Obviously one came from the O's side, announcing that they aren't retaining Flores. Just seems they would announce them both if both were decisions by the O's themselves.
Just conjecture on my part, thanks to the wording by Roch.
