Buck Showalter Newsbeat
Thursday, April 30, 2015
One of the worst things that comes out of civil unrest like we’ve seen in Baltimore are the armchair civic leaders, lecturing people from the comfort of their homes and lives which have absolutely no connection to the unrest in question about what they should or should not be doing.
You’ve seen them on your Facebook feed. Quoting Martin Luther King under the delusion that they have more to say about being, for example, a black person or a poor person in a place where black and poor people are being repressed. Not realizing, even for a moment, that maybe they don’t know what in the hell they’re talking about and that their rosy abstractions have zero relation to what is actually going on. Maybe they mean well and maybe the impulse to be disapproving of violence is a good one, but really, there are some things — a lot of things — people don’t know and shouldn’t presume to know better than the people who are living it.

Good things come…
Orioles manager Buck Showalter couldn’t believe that the two half innings by Buchholz took nearly 40 minutes of the three hours, 24 minutes it took to complete the game. More annoying to Showalter was the impact it had on his starter Chris Tillman.
“I wouldn’t say it’s mentally tough,” added Tillman. “It’s more physically challenging. I’ve been in that situation enough to prepare myself in the dugout to go back out to make pitches from the get-go. First couple of times it was tough.”

Catcher Matt Wieters revealed that he expanded the distance on his throws yesterday to 150 feet. He had been playing catch at 120.
The rehab’s going well and going how it’s supposed to from all the talk I’ve gotten with Dr. (James) Andrews and my physical therapist down here and Richie (Bancells),” Wieters said. “Everything’s kind of moved along and we’re preparing for me to be ready for opening day. We still have a good couple of months before we’re there, so it’s still going to be a lot of work to put into it, but that’s what I’m preparing for. We’re trying to get all the steps checked off before we get there.
“We’ll see when I’m actually going to be able to get behind the plate and catch in games during spring training, but it’s just a matter of making sure the arm has been tested enough to where when we do get into games with adrenaline and a little bit of pressure that we’re ready to go.”
for his generous support.
