Manny Machado Needs A Timeout

Every so often, we who regularly spend time with young people, whether it’s in a classroom setting or around the dinner table, would be wise to remember that they are young, capable of brilliant conduct in one moment and astoundingly silly behavior in the next.

Sometimes, I wonder if either I’ve lost my mind or if the world around me, or, at least that part of it that is attached to sports, isn’t going bat-guano crazy.

Under normal circumstances, sports fans and teams from Baltimore don’t have to take a back seat to anyone around the country, least of all Bostonians. And we surely don’t need their advice.  But a column in a Boston newspaper last week offered counsel to the Orioles and their fans that made perfect sense.
