Buck Showalter is focused. He’s preached it all season long and his players are giving the same Showalter-esque answers we’ve all become accustomed to hearing from the O’s skipper over the first five months of the season.
The above picture is an actual screen shot taken from MASN’s broadcast of the Orioles amazing 10-6 victory of the Yankees. Mark Reynolds is trotting the bases after hitting his second home run of the game and Buck Showalter refuses to celebrate.
It’s working. That focus has led to 77 wins.
It’s not luck. It’s Buck.
