Out of sheer boredom, I was checking my O's RSS links, and I saw this article from the O's official site which indicates a potential rift between Razor and Dave-o.
"I like Ramon?" "We'll get it all straightened out?" What the heck is going on in that clubhouse?
"Get in great shape over the winter?" Is Ramon a fatty now? For the record, he went 2 for 4 in the game with one run scored.
"We don't need any attention drawn to ourselves by anything negative," he said. "If we're going to get the attention coming down the last few games, it should be by playing hard and doing things right and being professional, being a big-leaguer. When guys aren't that, I don't care if they've played three days or three months or 15 years. I'm going to tell them. I think these guys are aware of that. There's only so much you can do besides talk. I think you just have to not play people."
I'm right there with him on that one. If anyone is phoning it in, they should sit. And we all know who we're talking about.
But this article in general is news to me. I find myself wondering how many other fractious situations are going on that we don't know about?
BTW, speaking of hustle? Some time this week, Brian Roberts will likely steal his 50th base of the season. Aftger tonight's game, he's at 48.
