Recommended Posts

Martin out with broken wrist: Richie Martin is out with a broken bone in his right wrist. He was hurt diving back into first base in Friday night’s intrasquad. Originally, the Orioles though he had a laceration underneath a finger nail on his left hand.

He went from a fingernail injury on his left hand to a broken bone in his right wrist...

That...Seems strange.

So sad. I like Richie Martin and I was rooting for him. We don’t have any really good players on this team, but we have a lot of “feel good” guys that you really want to see do well.

He had one of the two best defensive players last season, when he lunged to his left for a grounder, the grounder took a sudden hop to the right and he caught himself, spun in the other direction, got to the ball and nailed the runner. What a great play that was! And it wasn’t his only one either. I guess we’re not going to see him this season…

Apparently he felt the pain in the right hand yesterday when he tried to play catch.

So he dove headfirst into first base, collided with the re-bulked up Chris Davis, and injured both hands.

I had a minor wrist fracture 4 or 5 years ago.  About the most minor you can have, a non-displaced fracture (the end of the bone had a crack in it, as opposed to a displaced fracture where a bone is broken clean through).  I was in a small amount of pain bit I couldn't pick up anything heavier than a pencil.  I couldn't turn a doorknob with that hand.  I certainly would have noticed it long before trying to play catch the next day.  I did wait four hours before driving myself one handed to the hospital so I could watch Frank Beamer's last ever game, and it wasn't that painful just sitting there, more "discomfort" than pain.  But I couldn't use the hand for anything.  And that was supposedly about as minor a fractured wrist as one could have.  Perhaps a less important bone would have been different (mine was the radius).

Yeah, it does sound weird. I would assume he has both injuries. At first they could only tell that he had some kind of fingernail injury probably because they could actually SEE that one. Maybe his wrist was a little sore at the time, but they obviously didn't do an x-ray right there on the field.

 

I remember I broke my wrist in college and thought it was just a sprain. I didn't go to the doctor for about a week. Eventually I went in and had to have emergency surgery lol. I had no idea it was broken.

 

Hopefully he has a speedy recovery, but a wrist injury is no bueno. Takes time to heal, then rehab. Then you can try to play again. Might not be enough time for him this year.

Sounds like it's the Redskins doctors diagnosing this versus the Peter Angelos specialists.  Maybe that's how we are cutting costs now.

He won't play again this year. You are right.

That’s a shame. I didn’t necessarily expect big things from him but it’s have been cool to see him play alongside Iglesias. That’d have been some nice infield defense with Ruiz at third and Davis at first.

Those four guys combined for -14 defensive runs saved last season.  Maybe Martin would fit better at 2B but it’s still a below-average defensive infield at best.

Especially on his throwing hand.

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
