Brandon Hyde to return as Orioles manager (Ep. 81)
As the season nears its end, the O's have reveal that their skipper will be back in 2022.
The finish line is within sight. The Orioles’ difficult season is nearly over. And it feels fair to say that these last few weeks have left many within the fanbase feeling a tad rosier about 2022 than they did in the midst of last month’s lengthy losing streak.
First, we have Cedric Mullins just crossing the 30/30 threshold on Friday night. That is a massive achievement, and should give the O’s their table-setter for the next few years at least.
Then, you have some of the top prospects in baseball nearing the major league level. In fact, GM Mike Elias just said that both Grayson Rodriguez and Adley Rutschman will be given a chance to make the club out of spring training. Who knows if that’s just lip service, but it sounds nice.
And finally, we have some clarity on the dugout, where Brandon Hyde will retain his job to begin the 2022 season. Opinions on the skipper vary, but it’s tough to think of a logical replacement given where the organization is in their massive rebuild. They are unlikely to push for a playoff spot next year, and Hyde has shown to be a decent man for the moment.
The guys return to talk about all of that. One note, this was recorded on Wednesday, and there were some technical difficulties. As always, we thank you for the patience with our occasional incompetence.
