Machado is still hitting the ball really, really hard, but is that enough?

Do you think Manny Machado and the Orioles are happy there isn’t a #narrative to go with the worst hitting season of his career? On one hand, no one is propagating wild theories that Joe Maddon broke him with some intentional walks. No one is whispering about mysterious maladies or off-field distractions. No, all they have is a .230/.296/.445 first-half line and assurances that Machado is hitting the ball hard. Really, really hard.

While that makes him a slam dunk buy-low option for your fantasy team, the uplifting outlook probably isn’t raising many spirits in the Orioles' front office—or in Machado’s camp either, for that matter. The team that could contend without starting pitching suddenly can’t, and now their golden parachute—a year-and-a-half of a bona fide superstar—is probably sequestered for the time being by the law against selling low. For Machado, his perplexing down season (a la Bryce Harper’s 2016) could be one calendar fresher in the minds of potential suitors.

Baseball Therapy: Mr. Jones and Me

Russell A. Carleton

"To me it just means getting rid of all these stats. Everything they're throwing at us nowadays."

Every once in a while, a quote about sabermetrics pops up that makes me pause for a moment, and last week we got one from none other than Orioles center fielder Adam Jones. Responding to a question about how to make baseball “cool” again, Jones went off on a rather interesting tangent:

On the 11th episode of DFA, Zach Crizer's back to join Bryan and review the lack of depth at the end of the Orioles' bench and bullpen. (Seriously, can you believe Edwin Jackson is back?) Plus Sam Dyson gets traded to the Giants, Jean Segura signs an extension, and much more!

It's Baseball Prospectus's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets) are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

BP is coming to Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and New York. Join us!

One of my favorite things about being a part of Baseball Prospectus is interacting with you, our readers. You are an extension of what we do—with a collective, driving thirst for baseball knowledge that is unparalleled on the internet. And while talking to you all either in our chats, comments section, Bat Signal, or various social media platforms is great, we like to get out there and see you in person as well. Yes, you. So each year, we schedule a number of ballpark events so we can all hang out together in the cathedrals of our collective choosing.

A semi-complete list of people who are (and aren't) at fault for Manny Machado's almost beanball.

On Sunday, Matt Barnes threw a 90 mph fastball at Manny Machado’s head.

It was on purpose. Barnes denies it was on purpose, and you’re free to believe him if you want, but come on. Come on. We’re adults here. We know when other adults do stuff we’d tell kids not to do. This is that stuff. Barnes threw the pitch because Machado injured Dustin Pedroia on Friday on a bad slide. It wasn’t on purpose. Machado said it wasn’t on purpose. Pedroia said it wasn’t on purpose. Barnes said, Let’s be stupid anyway.

Manci is temporarily alongside the sport's biggest names. Ruth. Williams. Bonds. Gehrig. Ernaga?

While everyone is (rightly) excited about Eric Thames and his extreme early success after years playing in Korea, there’s another bat-first 1B/DH type who is raking. Trey Mancini of the Orioles has capitalized on a tremendous cup of coffee last September and snuck into seven games so far in 2017. The result has been, to put it bluntly, incredible: his four homers pair with his three dingers last year to give him seven bombs in just 39 plate appearances and a career slash line of .361/.410/1.000. In other words, he’s following the famous Kevin Maas/Chris Shelton/Brian LaHair script quite nicely.

For now, Trey Mancini is the greatest major-league hitter who has ever lived. Sure, you have to qualify that by saying “on a rate basis” and “with a minimum of 35 plate appearances,” but it is wholly, if temporarily, true. We can use the incredible Baseball-Reference Play Index to find the top 15 hitters by OPS+ who ever lived with Mancini’s mark of 39 plate appearances. It’s a veritable who’s who of the game’s most inner-circle Hall of Famers and fearsome hitters. Check it out:

Nick Franklin keeps trying to live up to the hype, Desmond Jennings gives the Mets more outfield depth, and Edwin Jackson joins yet another organization.
