Sammy Gets Tossed!

Hey, our boy Sammy showed some fire tonight. I think its only the second time he’s got tossed. Kind of surprising that such a passive manager such as he gets tossed so quick. Nonetheless, I think he was right and it was a bad call.

  1. Sammy got tossed but it was three pitches too late to complain. Payton did not offer at the first bunt attempt. Three pitches later when he strikes out Sammy goes out to the first base umpire….for what? He should have argued when it happened. The score is 1-1 in the 8th. Gibbons spot won’t come up again, most likely. Instead of inserting Patterson in center in Gibbons’ spot and moving Payton to left he leaves things alone. Gibbons is a hitter, not an outfielder. Then he lets Guthrie decide when he’s too tired to go out in the 8th knowing what garbage the expensive bullpen will do. Sam is a nice guy but I would love to see a true Oriole like the but kicking demanding Davey Johnson. Oh, wait….I forgot who the owner is….
