Co-Host of Norris & Long – Weekdays from 5:30AM-10AM on 105.7 The FAN.
“Now with Trestman gone, you can bet if this offense doesn’t improve now, one, if not both, will have some explaining to do.”
The series between the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles seems more like a celebration of baseball than an actual rivalry with the way the teams have really taken on winning traditions since the start of the 2012 seasons. Here are some candidates of the best players in the region and why:
Manny Machado made it perfectly clear in the second inning that he did not like Yordano Ventura throwing inside. Not only did he stare him down, he chirped at Ventura after hitting a fly ball to left field. Machado obviously had issues with Yordano’s approach.
Now, with the team purchasing the contract of Janish, the team now has seven in the bullpen and a full bench.
Kevin Gausman has been giving Chris Tillman a run for his money at the top of the rotation.
Maybe the 23-year-old Miami native has visions of one day being the game’s best shortstop, but for now, why can’t we believe that he’s committed to what he does?
While Manny Machado is more than capable of stepping and filling the physical void, J.J. Hardy’s presence means so much more.
With this pick the Ravens have the flexibility to either trade Eugene Monroe or play Stanley at the right tackle position.
The Baltimore Orioles are 6-0. I’m loving life.
Rob Long is down in Sarasota, Fl. for Orioles Spring Training and he’s having a blast chatting with some of the guys before the games. Hear him chat with players like Caleb Joseph, Jonathan Schoop, Tyler Wilson and Yovani Gallardo.
The Orioles sent some of their young guns out to the mound on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
As I speak with the players in the clubhouse, focus seems to be the topic of discussion.
