Why is that cool or cooler? Reynolds porked subby's sister or Reynolds turned down subby's requests to deepthroat him all night?

Pardon my ignorance, but why the fark did his teammates snubbed him?

It's a little baseball practical joke. Most of the time it's when rookies hit their first career HR, they expect to have teammates waiting to celebrate and nobody says a word.

One of baseballs unwritten rules. Same reason the players will never tell a pitcher he has a no hitter going, same reason the third guy up after two guys just went yard gets one in the ribs, same reason you don't steal 2nd in the 8th inning of a game you are up 10, etc etc.

Basically it's late in the season to hit your first homer if you are a guy with decent power so instead of making a big deal that you finally got the monkey off your back you get the silent treatment.

Typically, it's a prank that ballplayers do. Google it. It's a somewhat common thing.

He hit 37 home runs last year, but did not hit his first this year until the first week of May. That is why he was given the silent treatment.

See, e.g. Albert Pujols

He hit his first HR four days ago, but I didn't realize he was otherwise hitting that badly so far this year. I just assumed he was batting towards the bottom of the order because Showalter caught him using a unsanctioned scent of deodorant, the top of his left sock was 1.5 millimeters lower than the one on his right, or some other Showalter-ism.

No he can't do 2 of the 3 things a MLB player should be able to do:

Hit
Catch

He hasn't been doing so great. Not as bad as some years, but his defense hasn't really improved and he hasn't put up the numbers he put up last year. Couple that with the inclusion of more flexible position players (Flaherty, Betemit) that can handle third, and more options at DH and he's looking less and less necessary. I can't imagine him ignoring Buck like that to go unpunished, and I fully expect him to either be bumped down to AAA or traded by mid-season.

Of course, knowing the Orioles luck as soon as we trade him he'll start knocking them out of the park and stop making so many errors.

No argument there, I'm just floored he was still getting regular playing while also not hitting HRs all this time, since the low .BA and horrendous defense (especially at 3B) are givens with him.

The weirdest one has to be not stepping on the line. I saw a time lapse video of the first base line once...not a single player all game stepped on it.

Betemit is hitting a little better, but he is still no Brooks Robinson at third. His ole play on Sunday almost cost the Orioles on Sunday.

Showalter isn't the kind of guy you want to snub. He'll get his revenge
 
2012-05-08 03:50:21 PM  
He's 12 Ks shy of Adam Dunn this season and he's on pace for under 200 total for the season. It's like he's not even trying anymore.

Oh no, I know he still kind of sucks at third. He's just slightly better for a 3B/DH. Ideally I think I'd have Reynolds or Betemit on first with Flaherty on third and Davis at DH. Even then, we'd still need some more power in the lineup, but we're winning so I can't complain too much.

His "revenge" will be demoting Reynolds to AAA where he belongs. Can't field, can't hit, what's the point?

Reynolds looks surprisingly good at first base.

If Reimold can come back and hit half as well as he had, that will help with the power. I haven't heard how his back is doing, but it looks like he is going to have a rehab assignment before he comes back to the O's. Link

Silent treatment? Shiat, the entire Angels dugout was empty(cleared into the lockerroom tunnel) when Pujols hit his first one
 
2012-05-08 04:41:20 PM  
CSB: when he was a D-Back, for Fan Fest they had tours of the Snakes locker room. in what i can only think was a practical joke, Reynolds left his jock strap hanging in his locker.

the flipside, but also a popular baseball practical joke, is for wehn the rookie gets his first hit, they'll sometimes call for the umpire to relay the ball back to the dugout.

the joke begins when after the inning ends, the rookie gets his "first hit" ball back, but it "accidentally on purpose" is covered with pine tar and tobacco and piss and god knows what other filth was accidentlly on purpose applied. after he gets mad, he is then given the actual more or less pristine ball he actually hit.

I'm floored that they're paying him 7.5 mil this year and 11 mil next year. Hell, the Astros may have found a team dumb enough to take Carlos Lee's contract off their hands.

Actually, they probably call him "Skip" more than "Coach." I honestly can't recall hearing too many players calling their manager "Coach" (they probably just go on a first-name basis most of the time now).

Regardless, subby wasn't speaking from the player's perspective.

There's also the prank where a rookie gets his first hit, the fielders throw the ball to his dugout so he can keep it, and a veteran will quickly switch the ball with another one and throw it to a fan, making it look like they just threw the rookie's first hit ball away.

That's been done less and less as it's been picked up on TV several times, though.
