Quick Hits: Orioles, Indians, Free Agents

The Orioles decided to rely on internal options in the outfield after surveying the market for trade targets, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports (on Twitter). The Orioles had some interest in Juan Pierre, but it appears they’ll rely on players such as Nate McLouth, Chris Davis, Xavier Avery, Endy Chavez and Lew Ford in the outfield with Nick Markakis injured. Here are today’s links…

Oh Bobby, where do we begin. It’s fantastic to have confidence but at this point, half the team has given up on you. It seems like only Pedroia, Ciriaco, Ross and a handful of bullpen arms are the only ones trying at this point. Everyone else giving effort is the young kids on the roster trying to earn a spot or get noticed. If they keep him next year, whatever. It’s better than firing him and possibly bringing in another manager for one year.

No Bobby, you’re not. You have no idea how to manage a pitching staff, design a lineup, or manage personalities.

Bobby V has really lost it. Its really a shame that he couldn’t produce the magic that he produced in New York with Boston. Hopefully he latches on with another big league organization..

Cheers for Bobby V.. He has been sandbagged by overpayed, prima donna players, coaches whose loyalty has been to the front office and a general manager, wet behind the ears, who has been playing “stab in the back” politics since his first decision to hire an untried, not-to-bright- “yes” man as the team’s field boss last December. Stay with it Bobby, you will get a full shot at righting the ship next spring….
