Melvin, sit down and shut up
Melvin Mora, you gotta be kidding me.
You’re saying Dave Trembley disrespected you because you’re not playing as much lately? Wish I could trade paychecks with you and get that kind of disrespect.
Look in the mirror, pal. And check out the stat sheet, too.
You’re batting .256. You have three homers. You’ve driven in 27 runs. Not exactly Babe Ruth, huh? And the team is reeling, dropping 16 games under .500 like a car pushed over a cliff.
No, the Orioles need their best players on the field right now if they’re going to come out of this tailspin. They need to see what the young guys can do, too. Trembley, their manager, knows that.
You sound like a cry-baby right now, Melvin Mora. You sound like every spoiled-jock stereotype there is.
Time to suck it up and take one for the team. If you play, you play.
If not, the best thing you can do for the Orioles is shut up.
