[CespedesBBQ] As an O's fan, this whole Manny Machado thing feels like breaking up with your significant other in a really public place while everyone watches and laughs.

I honestly think Machado just wants to play baseball and only thinks about this when he's asked about it.

Like I live in Baltimore, I can't remember a time hearing about people seeing Machado just out and about in the city, and I've heard him say before something like “I’m here to play baseball, I’m not here to sightsee. I’m here to play baseball, do my job and go home and sleep and get ready for tomorrow.” And I think this is actually who he is. And he can't wait for this to be over.

I've seen him out multiple times. He got married pretty young so he never did the single guy at the bar thing like Jones used to do or Mancini does now. Manny and his wife lived in Silo Point for years, and pretty much only went out around the Locust Point area.

Jones used to go to bars? And Mancini does now? Where did / do they go

Bundy came into Amber in locust point when I was running the kitchen over there. Jones has his own burger at Abbey Burger Bistro so I imagine he, at some point, went there a lot. Haven’t heard anything about Mancini.

When Jones was younger and single he was out in Fed Hill often. Mancini has been seen if Fed a few times recently also. I bumped into Trey in line for beer at the Coheed/TBS concert on Sunday, boy was tore up haha.

I met Caleb and Matusz in at a bar in Federal Hill years ago. Caleb was so cool, bought us a round of shots. Matusz was an asshole.

Heard similar stories about Matusz at Nobles

Sounds about right. Some people just can handle $10 all you can drink.

Flaherty used to go to little Havana all the time. A big group of them would go to Abbey Burger after games a lot, they’d keep the upstairs open private for them.

Favorite was seeing LEW FORD at Mad River. Was magical.

Wait what? $10 is the tax on a drink in Toronto.

There’s like three bars in Federal Hill ( almost adjacent to the stadium) that do $10 all you can drink on Fridays. Baltimore has it’s issues but we know how to party.

I know it's not recent but a few times I ran into Brady at harbor place. Same with Scott Erickson

I picked up Manny and Givens at the airport along with other Orioles prospects when they were called up to Aberdeen. I remember him asking if he’d get to play the next night. Seemed like a good kid who, like you said, just wanted to play.

Maybe this will make them take a look in the mirror and realize they need to be better

Manny was gone whether we were in first or last. Winning would have just delayed the inevitable.

Yeah, if we were a playoff caliber team then he'd leave at the end of the year, and the O's would get nothing.

I don't really feel that way. Maybe if you knew you were gonna break up for like 3 years and now it's finally happening but it's for the best

As not an O’s fan, this whole Manny Machado thing is getting really annoying. We get it, he is going to be traded. Do we have to hear about it every 3 minutes? Get over it Fox.

lol it's fox. I never liked their baseball coverage. Especially the post season. Joe Buck is super annoying

I’m so so sick of it there’s a new take on who’s in the lead every 15 minutes I can’t wait for it to end

On the topic of Fox being trash, can we just play the game instead of watching a player mic’ed up out there? I don’t care about Harper, I don’t care about Trout or his weather forecast, I wanna watch the damn game. Not to mention he’s distracting Lindor by making him look up as the pitch is happening.

Haha yeah gee CESPEDES family BBQ I wonder what it must be like having your best players traded and having everyone watch and laugh at your franchise for trading all their players and being a farm team for everyone plus laughing at you for raw sewage flooding your stadium haha yeah gee I wonder what that must feel like must suck lol

I mean....the guys who run the account are Orioles and Mariners fans so it’s not like they’re spoiled or anything...

No the laughing was when you re-signed Davis.

Anyway I look forward to the tank wars to come between you and my Jays.
