If you can get him to focus, he makes great points.

He's been around for quite awhile and I always listen to him.    But his wandering all over the baseball map drives me nuts.   Then again, maybe that's part of the "charm".    You never know where he's gonna go with a question.   "Ya know?"

I can definitely see hammonds and CALSGR8 screaming "OH" at the top of their lungs at Nationals Park.  :smh:

So can I (they must have been in ecstasy when Cal Ripken had that big pre-match appearance during our last homestand)...although I think the latter sits a section or two to the left of TBSITH and I can't recall hearing significant 'OH!' activity from that direction (although one does hear occasional murmurs of 'OH' at Nats Park).

CALSGR8 did not "oh" during the SSB at that game.   :)

Wow, neither Sal nor Ed from Fairfax made it on the air this week.  A step forward.  Demonstrates that the show has a large enough audience that the same people are not put on the air... every single week.



Now screen out the callers who think that former Orioles need to be part of the Nationals.

I guess we can release them from the basement now.    :P

BTW   I thought George's call about Span was very good.    Kudos to Wood and Mike for letting him make his points.

I'll take your word for it (I was on the concourse during the anthem) but what in the heck was Ripken doing there anyway? Just Angelos trying to remind us who's in charge, or what?

I cracked up when they said the hiring of Cal Ripken as the manager would sell tickets to Nats' Park.    Then they wandered off into Ted Williams   ....

I'm thinking of getting a head start on the "Fire Ripken" thread.

blue911 and I had her under guard and attentive ears on the very same concourse during the anthem.    :)    Ripken caught the initial first pitch at the 8/15 Giants game.      It was a baseball (non-Angelos) related reason and seemed to make sense at the time though I don't remember the reason.      I think there were two that day.

And then Chuck from Pa. called:  Cal and Brooks, Cal and Brooks. Do you think the O's should have hired Cal? How about Brooks?   On and on it went. 

As I said in the email they refused to read, the O's show on MASN does not talk about the Nats so why the hell do they talk incessantly about the O's?

Sadly, this is yet another demonstration of the old saying 'He who pays the piper calls the tune'. Angelos owns the network, hires the personnel and signs the pay cheques, so it's his (meaning in this case the Orioles') call.

Interesting that PhilWood suggested that Danny Espinosa is so bad at AAA (striking out 33% of the time, batting .205), that he may not be a September call up.  He thinks Espinosa could be traded to Tampa Bay.

There will be lots of speculation about who the next Nationals manager will be.  I doubt that Peter Angelos is screening calls on Nats Talk, to ensure that callers suggest former Orioles players.

Davey has already said that Espinosa isn't being called up.  He needs to have that surgery as quickly as possible, to be honest.

I don't think he's directly screening them either - the people he (or his underlings) hired to do these shows know whom they work for, they know what their job is, and they do it. No need for any extra monitoring.

No problem - it was just the first thing I could turn up (as is well known I don't watch MASN so wasn't aware of the separate E-mail for the specific show).

Slap tears are treated with Physical Therapy First!

Treatment


Nonsurgical Treatment

In many cases, the initial treatment for a SLAP injury is nonsurgical. Treatment options may include:

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen reduce pain and swelling.

Physical therapy. Specific exercises will restore movement and strengthen your shoulder.

Flexibility and range-of-motion exercises will include stretching the shoulder capsule, which is the strong connective tissue that surrounds the joint. Exercises to strengthen the muscles that support your shoulder can relieve pain and prevent further injury. This exercise program can be continued anywhere from 3 to 6 months, and usually involves working with a qualified physical therapist.


Surgical Treatment

Your doctor may recommend surgery if your pain does not improve with nonsurgical methods.

What did Phil say about Espionsa?

Basically, that DJ had a loyalty to him that probably wouldn't have extended to other players.    Phil voiced his dismay that Espinosa wasn't dealt with much earlier.
