6/24: Marlins-Orioles, Part 3

Recommended Posts

For all the trashing he has got on this board over the last few weeks Jones has been coming on.

Yes, he has!

I almost laughed out load at Amber's report on Fox: "he was frustrated in Oakland because they want their players to take pitches and work the count." Well, the Orioles were made for him.

Fox then proceeds to K on 3 balls out of the strike zone.

By the way, why is Fox even playing? Isn't the idea to DH Wieters when Tatum catches, now that Fox is on the team?

Thats your plan, heck its my plan, in fact I think it is most of the OH's plan.

I have not heard anyone from the O's say its their plan tho.

Samuel's holding Wieters back for a late-inning sac bunt situation.

Juan benched Wieters for screwing up the bunt...

That it is the O's plan too was reported on their mlb.com site http://baltimore.orioles.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20100624&content_id=11545056&notebook_id=11545064&vkey=notebook_bal&fext=.jsp&c_id=bal. But Samuel also talked abt bringing Fox in to swing away at pitches he likes; I guess he's prioritizing the latter over the former right now. But it's an odd move, unless Wieters is injured, after forcing him to make that stupid bunt last night. Don't those 3-run XBHs Matt was getting count for anything? Strange.

Even if he DHs more, Wieters still needs occasional actual days off. Hopefully now he will catch twice and DH once this weekend.
