Just listened to Palmer on XM


El Gordo

Recommended Posts

Boy did he have a lot to say. I wish I had a tape recorder, but a few things that jumped out to me. He spoke to a coach at ST and he asked what kind of club is this going to be and the coach said "if anybody worked hard it would stick out like a sore thumb." "PA wants Rick Dempsey":eek:," the inmates are running the asylum","They need to be taking IF", "Terry Crowley is a good hitting coach, there is a fog bank between the on deck circle and the batters box many lose their way in it and end up swinging at pitchers pitches early in the count", Dave may have been too nice a guy".

Such are the leaps of logic one must make to sustain the conclusion that Terry Crowley is a good hitting coach!

Agree with the "too nice" sentiment. A leader who is too nice is almost always disrespected and rarely gets the maximum out of his charges. Know any good managers, football coaches, businessmen, or generals who is known as being a "nice guy"? I don't.

Ron Gardenhire is known to be a "nice guy." So is Eric Wedge.

This is the thing that strikes me about Palmer: He always is the first to say things like, "this is the way it should be done." etc etc. But he never puts himself out there to manage or coach.

He could easily do it, what team would not want someone like Jim Palmer to be their manager?

Sometimes Palmer strikes me as a guy who finds it easy to lob jabs from the safety of the pressbox but wouldn't know what to do if he were ever in a situation to act on his beliefs.

But still, if that is how he sees things, then that is how he sees things.

Palmer is in a better position to see things about this club than any of us. He may be overstating things but the part about people not working hard on doing the little things concerns me. I don't think he would say that if it wasn't true.

Too nice is the word. Remember when Brian Roberts ran around third on a popup and was made to look awful?

Trembley did nothing.

You got to bench guys.

Bench Tejada when he doesnt run to first.

I really want a dictator.

Dempsey might be okay. I know it would cause an explosion of disdain from the OH elites.

Honestly as arrogant as Palmer is he backed it up. The guy is probably a genius on an IQ test. I really dont doubt it.

Yes, because that worked out so well for Fredi Gonzalez.

Look the issue with Demper is the same problem that people will have/had with DT. Dempsey hasn't showed an acute ability to navigate this team through games. And the Orioles really aren't in a position to try someone out just to see if they get it.

He yells and screams a lot. He makes crazy predictions (40 homers for Reimold), but he's not a MLB manager. If you want dramatics don't watch baseball. Plus I think he'd be prone to throw a lot of guys under the bus or completely change who he is once he becomes a manager.

    • This is a secondary or more accurately a thirdly or even a fourthly move.  Something he does all of the time.  It means next to nothing.  Elias loves to do this kind of thing.  And overall......it doesn't matter!   He may hit 1 out of 11 or even 2 out of 20 of these things....which is fine!  It is all reward and no risk.  So whatever.    At the very least it provides depth in the minor leagues.  Will it make or break the Os?  Hell no. If you can't tell the difference between me talking about Elias's fascination with other teams high velocity/high spin castoffs who can't stay on the major league club, and real actual major league moves?  Then you haven't been paying attention. I could give you 5 examples just in the past year.  Just another example of people like you COMPLETELY lying about a post I make.  And don't worry......you aren't alone.  Lots of people do it on here.  Again.....it doesn't matter.  This move.  Doesn't matter.   But if you want to call me a troll for you thinking I THINK that these types of moves somehow invalidate what Elias has done here overall for the past 5 years?   Then you be you.    But it isn't true. 
    • At what cost? You weren't getting Cease for DL Hall and Ortiz or it would have happened. Would you have been fine trading away Westburg or Cowser+ for him? At least he's having an up year from 2023. 2023 2024  
    • For me, it’s not about Moore’s tournament performance as much as his apparent ability to square the ball up and use the entire field. Legit power and hit tool. 
    • Right, which is why the Tigers kicked in 18M.
    • Norby was cleaner at 2B, but Moore has better athleticism. Moore would need a lot of work to stay on the dirt. I would think they want to move him quickly, whichever team takes him. 
    • 3. There was a lot of second guessing of the Verlander trade at the time.  Verlander was seen by many as a pitcher who's best days where behind him. 
    • Just a friendly FYI: If you click on the Tweet itself to open it, and then "copy" the web address of that Tweet, you can then "paste' the Tweet here and it'll imbed properly and the Tweet itself will appear within your post here (versus being a clickable link in your post).   The "copy link" feature of Twitter doesn't always work on message boards any more.
