The Baltimore Orioles have declined a $3 million contract option for second baseman Alexi Casilla, making him a free agent.
We had a lot of texts and calls from people saying they didn’t understand why Buck sent Casilla on the steal in the 9th. I have no issue with it.
For all the people that said the Orioles should have moved on from Brian Roberts, have you watched him play?
I remember as a kid I would watch the Baltimore Orioles mashers like Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken destroy opposing pitchers en route to Cooperstown.
Wednesday we found out Brian Roberts was to have surgery on his hamstring which he injured in game 3 of 162 of this season, and yes another prolonged absence.
Manny did deliver. He hit a shot over the Green Monster to complete a five run ninth.
Danny Valencia kept showing he might be Minnesota’s long-term solution at third base.
