Is it me or does it seem like adam and felix don't have the closest friendship on the team? It seems like to me they don't really interact with each other the way they do with everyone else on the bench/team. Anyone else see this?

I think you saw the look Jones gave Pie on the fly ball where they almost banged into each other. i would not read too much into that. They seem along with Andino to be the shaving cream bandits and seem to have fun with that. In reality who cares even if they are not friends, as long as they work together.

Maybe they just don't speak the same language. Literally.

By the way, I was a little irked that Pie cut Jones off last inning, when Jones had a perfect angle to attempt a throw to third.

Doesn't Jones speak Spanish?

Anyways, this Jones/Pie rivalry thing has been brought up before, and it's always way overblown. Didn't we see Jones pie Pie? And I've definitely seen him enthusiastically congratulate Pie after he made a nice play.

I mean they may not be Super Best Friends, but lets not blow things out of proportion.

adam and felix seem like two nice guys and i don't see why they couldn't be friends

Unless you noticed something else besides the glance from Jones who is to say they are not. Bottom line even if they are not friendly, it doeos not matter. They both seem happy and seem to love to play.

This is something I usually don't notice or care about, but this is the third time I have seen Adam seemingly give Felix the cold shoulder on balls that were close to them. I was at a game sitting in left field earlier in the year and they had a ball hit between them, which Adam caught, promptly gave Felix the evil eye, and jogged to the dugout... Maybe I'm imagining things?

The CF is the "general" in the OF. Maybe Jones isn't happy that Pie is FLYING over in to CF territory? I mean, only Pie could get close like that, but he's definitely getting in to the CF'er's territory.

I always thought Pie spoke french? Really.

    • I agree with this. You also wonder if he hurt himself with the whole Toronto thing.  The relationship in Baltimore obviously changed after that. I just wonder if it hurt him elsewhere too, not that he would be the first executive to consider going elsewhere for a promotion.
    • Yeah I just think he's a super interesting guy. Much like his time with the Red Sox, he's a divisive guy who had moments of greatness mixed with moments of not.  The same guy signed Chen, but got himself blacklisted in S. Korea. The same guy turned Miguel Gonzalez and Jason Hammel into very good pitchers, but couldn't get basically any pitching prospect to pop. Just an interesting, mixed body of work. 
    • I see Duquette as a mixed bag, neither all good nor all bad.  I do find it interesting that, despite having some success in his various stops, he went 9 years without a job in MLB after Boston fired him, and he’s been unable to land another position in the 4+ years since being fired by the Orioles.  That suggests he’s not the easiest guy to work with, regardless of whatever other merits he has.  At this point, I think time probably has passed him by.   
    • Oh right, I do remember that. Few things:   1) Britton was injured that year and was going to be expensive the next year, so the value was only so high. 2) We have no idea who else was in the trade. Just because players aren’t/weren’t top 100 guys doesn’t mean they don’t end up being very good players. What if Cristian Javier was a guy they identified (not even sure if he was in the org at that time but the point remains the same)?   
    • An epic derail one post into the thread. Some fans cannot get over their Chris Davis hangup.  Feel bad for @wildcard who had a nice original point that there are a lot of players **on the 40-man roster** (i.e.: not Chris Davis) Elias did NOT jettison simply because they weren't "his" guys. 
    • Had an offer on the table from Hou that had Colin Moran as a headliner.  Was nixed because of medical issues.  https://www.camdenchat.com/2017/8/31/16234234/orioles-trade-rumors-zach-britton-astros-colin-moran
    • DD did some good things, as for the rest of this thread, sheesh, has Spring Training started yet?
