Hyde is not afraid to have hard conversations.   He’s very good that way.    

Why can’t he have one with Davis?

 “Davis, I’m sitting you except for late-inning defense. Now get out.”

From Roch:

Means on mentality change: “It was just staying more relaxed. I was trying to force a lot of things, trying to get strikeouts and blow it by everybody and it’s just not how I pitch. That’s not me. Hyde actually called me in the office this past week and gave me a tough talk and told me this isn’t me, this isn’t how I pitch, this isn’t how I should be. I was getting frustrated, I was getting upset and angry with myself, and to be able to relax out there and just be myself, it really helped me.”

Hyde on his meeting with Means: “I believe in communication, I believe in being honest and I just wanted to discuss his last few of outings. I was obviously very sensitive to what he’s gone through this year. But I thought we had a nice conversation about what he really did well last year, who he is, what kind of pitcher he is. Kind of going back to some things that he did very, very well last year, and for me that’s a major league starter in this league for a long time. And I felt like he was getting away from that a little bit. And I also wanted to see the poise on the mound that he showed last year. I just thought that he looked really discouraged a lot, I didn’t like his mound presence, I didn’t like his demeanor on the mound. It felt like he was pitching out of frustration instead of pitching to win and being competitive and going to the next pitch and moving on. Those types of things he did very well last year, I just wanted to remind him of that.”

Called John into the office this week and told him he was not being himself.  Trying to strike out too many.  Looking frustrated on the mound.  Not turning the page when when he makes a mistake.  Told him to remember who he is and what made him successful.

It was a huge move by Brandon Hype and John said it helped him a lot.  John said tonight is the first time he has felt good this season.

Hyde keeps impressing as a manager.  This is his team and its coming together under his guidance.

Hyde has shown to be a great communicator with his players and really does a good job is seeing those things and knowing when they need to be addressed.

Because it sounds like it's your personal information if you don't cite a source.

Because it’s the rules?

10. When quoting information please give the source and a link when possible. 

11. Do not post copyrighted material in it's entirety. You may cut and paste portions to discuss but please provide a link to the source site.


Also, while I agree most posters know how to find Roch’s blog, they may have trouble finding the entry the quote came from, especially if a few days pass before the poster reads this.   Lord knows I’ve spent a lot of time trying to dig up old blog quotes that I knew were there somewhere.

Does Hyde start to get some Manager of the Year buzz soon?

If we get over .500, and if we are still at least within spitting distance of a playoff spot the last week of the season, he probably does.

We will definitely be up there in terms of teams overperforming their projected finish.

Roch asked the same question today:  

Will Brandon Hyde become a finalist for Manager of the Year in the American League?

Give me one good reason why he shouldn’t.

https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/09/what-else-is-going-on-with-orioles-besides-pennant-race.html

I’ll wait until the end of the season to answer that question.    But I’d say Kevin Cash, Charlie Montoyo, Rick Renteria, Terry Francona, Rocco Baldelli and Bob Melvin all have a better shot than Hyde, and Ron Gardenhire and Scott Servais are in a similar position to Hyde.

    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
    • Now here's the Red Sox:   Dustin Pedroia, 2:24 2004, 51.6 rWAR Mookie Betts, 5:21 2011, 45.2 rWAR Jon Lester, 2:16 2002, 44.6 rWAR Anthony Rizzo, 6:20 2007, 34.3 rWAR Kevin Youkilis, 8:17 2001, 32.4 rWAR Jacoby Ellsbury, 1:23 2005, 31.0 rWAR (FA comp) Josh Reddick, 17:7 2006, 24.7 rWAR Jonathan Papelbon, 4:17 2003, 23.3 rWAR Jackie Bradley Jr., 1:40 2011, 17.8 rWAR (FA comp) Jed Lowrie, 1:45 2005, 17.0 rWAR (FA comp) Clay Buchholz, 1:42 2005, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) Freddy Sanchez, 11:22 2000, 15.9 rWAR Justin Masterson, 2:27 2006, 10.1 rWAR David Murphy, 1:17 2003, 9.9 rWAR Andrew Benintendi , 1:7 2015, 9.7 rWAR Travis Shaw, 9:21 2011, 9.4 rWAR Kelly Shoppach, 2:4 2001, 8.3 rWAR (FA comp) Alex Wilson, 2:28 2009, 5.1 rWAR Brandon Moss, 8:16 2002, 5.0 rWAR Daniel Bard, 1:28 2006, 5.0 rWAR (FA comp) Manny Delcarmen, 2:22 2000, 3.8 rWAR Christian Vazquez 9:30 2008, 3.6 rWAR Matt Murton; 1:32 2003, 3.3 rWAR (FA comp) Brandon Workman 2:7 2010, 3.1 rWAR   Cla Meredith, 6:24 2004, 2.9 rWAR Hunter Strickland, 18:20 2007, 3.8 rWAR Ryan Pressly, 11:20 2007, 7.0 rWAR Kristopher Negron 7:27 2006, 1.8 rWAR Kason Gabbard, 29:22 2000, 1.8 rWAR J.B. Wendelken, 13:23 2012, 1.4 rWAR Brian Johnson, 1s:31 2012, 1.3 rWAR Tanner Houck, 1:24 2017, 1.3 rWAR Noe Ramirez, 3:21 2011, 1.3 rWAR Mauricio Dubron 26:7 2013, 1.2 rWAR Travis Lakins, 6:6 2015, 1.2 rWAR Ty Buttrey, 4:23 2012, 1.1 rWAR Jeremy Hazelbacher, 27:4 2009, 1.1 rWAR   Total: 37 players, 458.8 rWAR 2000-09: 25 players, 364.8 rWAR 2009-20: 12 players, 94.0 rWAR   They crushed us in the 2000-09 period.    We have a slight edge on them in 2010-20 to date.     
    • Actually he's the perfect guy for the Japanese Leagues. He might hit 80 home runs in Korea!
    • There is no real legit argument that regular at bats aren’t there for Nunez until Diaz is an option up here.
