Adams sent home


3M9

Recommended Posts

Ryan Adams was sent home today...apparently done for the year. Disciplinary reasons of some sort.

I'm sure it all stemmed from a poor effort (again) from Adams at Myrtle Beach.

Very rare for a player to be disciplined, let alone sent home.

If that's true, unload them. I mean, they were signed when, 2006? If they can't straighten out in 3 or 4 years it's time to cut bait.

You only cut bait when you cant fit them on your roster and you dont think they have a future. If they hope this tough love can get thru then keep'em. If they truely see no hope then send them home.

These are 18-22 year old boys. I remember what I was like at that age. Sometimes you just need to get their attention. Not everyone was meant to be a choirboy.

I'm surprised to hear this about Adams. No disrespect to 3M9, but I'll wait to hear more before passing judgment on the guy. We don't have a lot to go on here.

I wouldn't be surprised if Adams is starting to realize he'll never be a prospect--a real shame since he was a high pick. But with his throwing and fielding troubles at 2B, his ongoing leg problems, and his inability to get on the field for long stretches, I'm wondering if he isn't acting out the frustration of a guy whose high hopes are dashed.

Why would we cut ties with Adams? He can actually hit, look up his stats. Rowell, sorry to say, but I wouldnt lose 1 second of sleep if we cut him right now. Adams OTOH has a useful bat, and IMO can have his personal issues ironed out. He hit over .300 last year and this year was hovering around.300 in his small bit of playing time. We are IMO looking at 2 different situations with the 2 kids.

Pretty stunning to hear that.

Don't think i've ever heard of a player sent home to get him away from the team.

There must've been a blow-up of biblical proportions to earn a vacation like that.

Of course I'm only speculating based on what little information is here.

Got the scoop on Adams and confirmed by Keys officials. It is official, he is done for the season. It's a shame too, and I think it's frustration moreso than anything that led up to everything. Let's hope Adams reports to camp next spring in tiptop shape as he looks to overcome this speedbump.

A situation like this is quite rare, but it's not the first time a Keys player has been sent home. I do remember a player a few years ago, Zach Dixon, leave the organization after refusing to report to Delmarva. There was almost a similar situation this season in the Keys clubhouse.
