I Don’t “Like Our Guys” Anymore

I have a T-shirt. It was a freebie that I picked up on arrival at Camden Yards. Many of you probably have it as well.

It says, “We Like Our Guys”. You know what? I don’t anymore, no matter the insistence of The Warehouse. Let’s break it down.

Chris Davis – The worst player in MLB

Jonathan Schoop – Amazingly almost as bad as Chris Davis. He’s really bad.

Manny Machado – Awesome but his value is completely tied up in what he can bring back in a trade. If the dysfunctional Front Office can figure that out. Otherwise he’s just leaving in free agency for nothing. I’m getting pissed off now.

Third base – Now I’m going to start getting really angry.

Corner OF – Trumbo? Mancini? I mean you know the Orioles are starting two DH’s who are not really good hitters at the corner OF spots? Right?

CF – Adam Jones has been a great representative of the team and the city. He isn’t a center fielder anymore. He’s still a productive major leaguer (though he’s having quite a power outage recently). He is playing hard. He’s trying. But here we are.

C – Yeah. A disaster.

SP – Dylan Bundy is actually good. Kevin Gausman? He could be good. Otherwise it’s a tire fire.

RP – Here’s the thing. Other than the freaks, relief pitchers have a short shelf life and the Orioles have sat too long on their assets.

It’s going to be a long cold lonely winter. The Orioles have no leadership and no assets. They are 23-57 which is historically bad.

A few months ago, I said that it’s really hard to only win 60 games.

Now I’m wondering how the Orioles even get to that level.

I don’t like our guys. Not one bit.
