If you think "this is what he will be," that is, a sub-700 OPS hitter, fine....but I think that's ridiculous. Most guys his age are still in AA.

Second his agent if he is true to heart and not in it for fame will fly to Baltimore to see whats going on with Manny. Third teammates will be borther like and sit down and have a pow wow. Not to say dont do this again he knows that already. They will talk about their frustrations every now and again and wanting to go Tony Soprano on someone and at times they do let it out. This icident is where the team can become a band brothers and show the world they are sticking to each other like glue. They are there to help one another along on and off the field.

I didn't get to watch the last half of the game yesterday and all the videos of Manny swinging and letting go of the bat were not working. I just found the clip of the at bat and all I got to say is Manny is going to be very lucky if he doesn't get suspended at least five games.Maybe he got thrown at but he started the whole thing with his BS at third base in the Friday night game and then hitting the catcher with his backswing twice. Accident, maybe but he sure as hell shouldn't be snickering about it. So he probably had it coming. Doesn't make it right just that's how baseball works.But there is no doubt that he intentionally swung late and let the bat fly. I wouldn't even swing that late. The ball was already by him when he took the delayed swing and let it fly. I don't give a damn if he is an Oriole. That isn't the Oriole way and should not be tolerated by us fans. 21 years old has not a damn thing to do with it. That was bush league period and I am pretty pissed about it having seen that unfold. Now hopefully the league and team will deal with it and its put behind us but I can't wait to see what happens July 18-20 when we visit Oakland. Baseball players tend to have long memories.
