Stan The Fan Says Mancini Certainly Orioles MVP But Just Victim Of Numbers Issue For All-Star Game

July 2, 2019
PressBox's chief grand poobah Stan "The Fan" Charles joined Glenn Clark Radio in studio Tuesday for another round of "Five Words Or Less." 

The sports figures discussed this week were: 
-"Yesterday's news that he has decided to retire Kevin Durant's number 35 seemed a little odd to the internet considering, well, you know, he's played all of three seasons for the franchise," Warriors owner Joe Lacob-G
-"Orioles fans couldn't help but be disappointed that he was left off the AL All-Star roster in favor of John Means considering, with no offense to Means, he's been the willing public face of a mess of a major league club and has performed at a high level," popular outfielder/first baseman Trey Mancini-S
-"She has maintained that she doesn't intend to retire, but her loss to impressive FIFTEEN year old phenom Coco Gauff at Wimbledon yesterday was her fourth first round exit in her last seven majors and she just turned 39," seven time major champion Venus Williams-G
-"It's been quite a stretch for local media retirements. Not only did your cousin Ron Matz announce his retirement from WJZ yesterday but last Friday marked this man's final day at WBAL before heading into what he's calling semi-retirement," veteran sports voice and former PressBox contributor Keith Mills-S
-"Back to the Warriors for a second, their acquisition of him caught basketball fans off guard, but veteran NBA writer Marc Stein suggested they know he's not a good fit and will trade him at some point, they just didn't want to lose Kevin Durant without getting anything back," former Nets point guard D'Angelo Russell-G
-"Despite Max Scherzer riding one of the best months in the history of baseball, manager Dave Roberts decided instead to go with his own guy to start the All-Star Game for the National League," less-than-hard-tossing but nonetheless stellar Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu-S
-"Even though her team is set to face England in the semifinals today, critics have been very tough on her for her decision making in this World Cup, including leaving Lindsey Horan on the bench to start the quarterfinal matchup with France," US Women's National Team coach Jill Ellis-G
-"Getting back to retirements, he also announced his retirement from sports media last week after 40 years at ESPN where he was perhaps best known for his work on '
Outside The Lines,'" multiple EMMY award winner Bob Ley-S
-"As he gets prepared to face Thiago Santos at UFC 239 Saturday night, rumors continue to swirl about where he'll stay at light heavyweight or move up to heavyweight so he can get a third fight with current heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier," controversial light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones-G
-"Sadly he died this weekend at the age of 86 after a legendary 60 year career as both a teacher and coach at Calvert Hall, including 14 years as the Cardinals' varsity football coach," the only recently retired Augie Miceli-S
