Tim Brown tweet.

 

Both Roch and Britt have retweeted this.

 

This really sucks.

I hope he has the brains and ability to come back from this.

And I hope we still have the defense to win a ring without him.

Tim Brown is apparently a legit reporter.  Feeling a combination of extreme disappointment, anger and frustration.

Not sure who Tim Brown is but from Bucks comments recently and now this it seems like it may be true.  Feeling a combination of extreme disappointment, anger and frustration. 

 

Yeah, I wasn't familiar with the guy either. 

 

Britt now has a short article that basically relies on his report.

Roch or Britt had a picture posted of Manny's knee being bent the wrong way at the moment of injury back when it happened. Based on that I have been a little bit skeptical of the 'just sprained' diagnosis. From the pic it really looked like some kind of internal damage had to have occurred.

I wondered early in the season, after seeing what happened last year, if he shouldn't be wearing braces on both knees.

He would probably cost us Bundy. Naw, don't do it.

Tough break, but the season's not over. This team did not rise and fall on Machado this year, and never did.

Very tough break.  I had a feeling they might need to tighten up that knee after the injury, didn't he have these issues when he was younger?  I seem to recall them explaining that last year when he hurt his other knee, that the ligaments were "loose" in both.

 

He recovered fine from the previous surgery, I'm sure he'll do fine with this one.

 

Still, tough blow to the Orioles...damnit.


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

If all Beltre cost us was a minor league pitcher who hasn't even fully recovered from Tommy John, I'd do it in a second and give Beltre a 3 year deal beyond that. He's going to be a good hitter for a while, and being able to take over 3rd base when Machado's knees decide to give out for what seems like the 74th time is a valuable asset.

The problem is Beltre's contract is between 15 and 17 mil over the next 3 years. We'd probably lose a couple more players along the way. Now if we want to mortgage the future for a chance to win this year then go for it but if we give up Bundy along with the other guys too the future is done.

Too bad we spent all that money on Jimenez.
