If I remember correctly, Manny dislocated his patella when he was in the minors. Didn't see this injury, but it can look pretty severe when it happens but is fairly easy to treat (I'm an ER doc and have replaced several). Typically a lot more painful than your acl/pcl tears, which tend to be more a stability issue than horrifyingly painful.

Edit: not saying that's what this is, it's just an optimistic possibility.

I was watching live. It looks like a break of some sort. In any event, it literally brought tears to my eyes. I feel bad for the kid. Devastating. Win or lose, this puts things into perspective. We can complain about these guys slumping, but in the end they are people, and I pray that Manny is okay.

You guys should have seen the looks on his teammates faces, especially BRob. Heartbreaking man!

I hate it. I love this kid. My 10 year old loves him too...the same age Ripken became my favorite player. I was so happy to see her latch on to a player and start to watch games. I hope it's not as bad as it looks.

If it is that, what does it mean that it's happened twice? Can't be that common is it?

Man this look's so bad.

Ouch. Didn't see it live, but that looks a lot like an ACL/MCL tear. What an absolute shame, but Manny's gonna be alright.

This was different from Davis hurting his leg earlier in the year running hard to 1b to beat out a throw. Manny was kind of pulling up and wasn't going full speed. It was kind of a routine play. When players are tired and over worked they tend to have freak injuries more. See Kobe's achilles injury. I blame Buck.

I can't even think how an hopefully intelligent adult would even think that.

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
