Buster Olney talks with him about 25 minutes into today's episode.  It's a good listen, he talks as smoothly about the two-year window, Manny and Britton as any grizzled hangouter.  It's also a wide ranging, rapid fire conversation with some content that may not get to print, that makes me feel good about him as a person and how he represents our org.

It's no surprise given his age and where he grew up, but given how he's evolved as a hitter, it is fun that Tony Gwynn was his childhood favorite.

    • Lots of things on here I disagree with but the true issue is that Urias isn’t a 3.5 WAR second baseman. He has no future, with the Os, as a third baseman.
    • Well that’s not true at all. They do that all the time
    • I guess you guys are missing the fact that it was a pretty good game called by the umpire, according to these numbers. 
    • I don't have any reason to believe that John will ever go away.  I am not a Washington football fan, but it is a lot like Dan Snyder.  These owners are universally despised and they just never sell and leave.  Approval ratings around 5% (if that) and it doesn't matter to them. Fascinating personalities, honestly.   As other "small" market teams extend or sign players and we basically do nothing, the evidence so far is we have a cheap loser of an owner who doesn't have a competitive bone in his body.  Makes sense, since his life has been gift wrapped since birth.  I'll be very happy to say I was wrong if we do anything other than 1 year contracts for relative nickels.  The real test will be if we are holding a playoff spot in late July.    
    • Three most impactful missed calls all went for the home town Red Sox and against the visiting Orioles. I wonder if there's a correlation between significant missed calls and A) impact to the home team, or B) impact to certain teams (you know who) regardless of the home / away factor. Somebody could probably get their doctorate by crunching those numbers. 
    • There is a better chance of DL Hall going into that role at some point, and likely the role he fits best anyway.  You keep on talking about the Lopez trade and how bad it was but you haven't mentioned Povich. And non of this correlates to Frazier in any way, shape or form
    • There is a difference between the two and some outfielders are not comfortable going back and forth. Both Santander and Stowers look much more comfortable in RF vs LF.
