Manny Machado needs to reassess his defense

He has tried miserably to get that nickname going and won't accept that it never will.

Just because I use it doesn't mean that I want, expect, or hope that others copy me. Your assumption that I've been trying to "get [that nickname] going" is mistaken. I'd actually prefer to keep it to myself; thus the avatar.

Manny needs to re reassess his defense.

In some ways he's fortunate to only have 9 errors on the season. The official scorer may have to reassess his ruling on the play that allowed the 6th run to score. Been others this season where errors weren't called as well. This is becoming Reynolds like, very scary. Most errors coming very late in games also.

I think Manny is just getting a bit cocky because he knows how good his arm is and he doesn't focus as well as he needs to. He'll get over it.

I think that is the problem. He came into the league and and showed everyone how good he can be with the deserved accolades. Now he needs to get over himself and play the game. Thinking you are great and being great are two different things. Baseball will humble you that way.,

I don't think he's cocky at all. When he makes a mistake, and they put the camera on him, actually in a few of the game costing situations, he looked like he was about to break down. He always looks so upset when he does something wrong. I think now it's more of a confidence thing.

I think he'll realize that he needs to put his best foot forward and move on from the mistakes, and play like the talented player we all know he is.

I am not blaming him. It is part of being young. I thought I could do every when I was his age, but eventually life beats you down to the real world. It is part of growing up.

Manny needs extra practice with whoever on the team is a defensive coaching wizard. He seems to have lost his confidence and the results sometimes get ugly. I was at Saturday's game and the fans booed him during a play which the scorer scored as a hit.

But the one in the hole at short arguably could have gone the other way, although IMO 51/49 E was the right call.

Agreed. Although I also thought he should have grabbed that high chopper that tipped off his glove into LF in the 7th. Not that it wasn't a hit. But it looked like a makeable play.

I'd play Paredes at third and let Manny DH and work with Bobby D. For a week or two. Like Earl would have. Maybe three if Jimmy makes the routine plays.

Three months ago, who would have thought that we'd be advocating Paredes over Manny (if only briefly) at third, have Pearce at second, prefer Delmon over Snider in right, and that Ubaldo would be our best pitcher. It's a crazy, crazy game.

Delmon threw a rope the other night that might have saved a run had Chen not cut it off with two out and no one on base. Bad mental game I'm seeing.

I seriously didn't understand that play. Even if the runner coming from third is safe by a mile, why cut it off with nobody else on base? Palmer said it wasn't a very good throw (it looked alright to me) but I couldn't understand why nobody questioned Chen's cutoff.
