Buck Showalter is a treasure

This Orioles team is bad. Like, really, really bad. But their manager is still kind of awesome.

Buck Showalter may be in the midst of his final season at the helm of the Baltimore Orioles. Along with vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, Showalter is in the last season of his current contract, and a change seems to be a-coming.

But Showalter will be fondly remembered in Baltimore for many things. For the way he returned the O’s to glory. For his comments following the Baltimore riots. And for doing things like this:

He does not care one bit about Xander Bogaerts. He wants to get Kevin Gausman into the dugout so that we can all move on with our lives and be subjected to as little embarrassment as possible.

Thank you, Buck.
