How could I forget, the legal fees the Angelos law firm collected paid for the whole of the Nashville Orioles payroll for three seasons running.

Who would have thought the Lerners would hire the Angelos'.  It made world peace seem possible. 

Wait what... the Nashville Orioles?  Time is truly warped.

How much strength and conditioning can someone do with myocarditis?  I would imagine as things got better he could do more and more but I can’t imagine he could deadlift any substancial weight until 100% cleared. 

Very, very little.  If he wasn't able to do "baseball activities" (i.e. swing a bat or throw a ball), then there is no way he'd be allowed to lift a weight or do sprints.  He likely went through a closely monitored cardiac rehab program.

Yea, they showed that before.

I can't say a play like that impresses me.

I don’t know anything about what led up to this so out of context it does look dirty albeit badass.

It doesn’t look dirty to me. The camera angle might be a little deceiving, but it appears he may have made some kind of move toward 2B after running through 1B and needed to get back on 1B. The runner has every right to be on base. The fielder/pitcher does not get to dominate the base like that. You could make a case that he pushed him for both to avoid a collision with knees or getting spiked. Those things cause legitimate injury. 

He has never been considered a dirty player that I have ever heard. To me, it’s a good kind of competitive toughness that is taught from 9 years old. If a player stands in the middle of first base without providing a path for the runner, the runner can run through them. It is what it is.

That's how I read that play by the video alone.

Good explanation that I hadn't thought of.  I think it's a little odd that it was posted - but no big deal.  .
