Buck Showalter just lost all credibility....


Recommended Posts

Yes, I know spanish. You wouldn't call a player named Jose "Joseph" or call a player named Juan "John"......same goes for Jorge

I believe when Jose Mesa pitched for the Orioles, he was known as "Joe Table" inside the clubhouse.

Pedro Martinez is known as "Pete" or "Petey" among teammates.

(P.S. - Not to pick on you, but Miggi's the man. If you look at his custom batting gloves, that's his preferred spelling. Comprende? :D)

Actually, I gained a lot of respect for Showalter the other day when, during Baseball Tonight, they showed a Red Sox clip, to which someone said, "That oughta make RSN happy." To which Buck replied, "Was there a Red Sox Nation before 2004?" Classic :D

    • Today BAL is 24th of the 30 Clubs in Wins since play began in 2019.     It'll be interesting to see how far these Adley teams can climb the AL ladder the next four or more years. https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders/major-league?pos=all&stats=pit&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&month=0&ind=0&team=0%2Cts&startdate=&enddate=&season1=2019&season=2023&sortcol=2&sortdir=default&pagenum=1 2019-present, we are already ahead of DET-KCR. Teams to leap frog next year: -trail TEX by 3 games, trail LAA by 5 games, trail OAK by 14 games, trail CHW by 27 games Teams to leap frog by end of 2025 -trail BOS by 40 games Those projected achievements would get Elias' Club to 8th of the 15 AL Clubs for 2019-2025.     How deep he took the dive helped how high it can fly.    Elias and Adley in time, if we are lucky, becomes a Belichick and Brady kind of thing.     If the Start Time is instead Adley's MLB debut, as managed by Elias, its already ATL-LAD-HOU-BAL.
    • Do you really want to pay Cedric Mullins FA rates for his age 31+ seasons? I don't, and that's not a knock on him or what he's done. Just the simple reality that it's hard to play good CF defense in your thirties and Cedric probably lacks the bat to be especially valuable in left field. Hopefully Bradfield Jr. or Fabian is knocking on the door in two years.
    • All of them would be tough outs, but you expect that since it’s the playoffs. FWIW we are 3-3 against Texas. 3-3 against Houston. 8-5 against Tampa. 10-3 against Toronto. I really don’t want to play any of them from a “who do I think we ll beat” because I think we can beat them all. Toronto beating us would bother me the most. 
    • We'll have to beat 2 of them to make it to the WS, so it kind of doesn't matter to me. Any series will be tough. If you're making me pick, I pick Texas given their bullpen.
    • Tampa is definitely the toughest team on there. I don't really have a strong preference between the other three.
    • Just because he's a little better than some of the starting SS in the league right now doesn't mean anyone would trade for him.   The only thing it means to me is that some teams have some seriously bad starting SS.   Thank the maker we have Gunnar.
    • I mean, playing Mateo didn't sink the team, but you can't just look at the W-L record and say the correct decision was made. How do we know we wouldn't have won an extra game or two while getting Ortiz necessary MLB experience if we'd gone with him over Mateo?
