On the Markakis comments
I’ve gotten a few emails about the comments Nick Markakis made in the Baltimore Sun yesterday. When I first read the story I had only one thought: finally.
It needed to be said. And it needed to be said by a guy like Markakis, who is about as quiet and soft spoken a guy as I’ve seen in the three years I’ve been in baseball clubhouses. Of course, it helps when you talk about guys having the wrong approach at the plate and single in your first two at-bats, as Nick did here at Petco Park.
Will his words spark anything? Or anyone? We will see. But it’s good to see someone show a little fire on the 18-win Orioles squad.
