Stan The Fan Thinks Brandon Hyde Made A Mistake In The Moment But Appreciates How He's Handled The Aftermath Of Chris Davis Issue

August 13, 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: 
-"He's hit a staggering 13 home runs this season against the Orioles...and 13 total home runs against all teams NOT named the Orioles this fact against non-Orioles opponents he's hitting just .261 and OPS-ing just .746," Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres-S
-"Oddly a number of rumors swirled on social media yesterday-none with any validity-suggesting the Ravens could be putting him on the market in the hopes of finding pass rush help," veteran cornerback Jimmy Smith-G
-"One trade the Ravens did make went down Sunday as they managed to snag a 5th round pick from the Vikings for him despite everyone knowing they were going to have to release him at the end of Training Camp. Some Ravens fans were still for some reason disappointed, with a few thinking the team should have let Sam Koch go and kept him on as their punter," second year kicker and punter Kaare Vedvik-S
-"Just when you thought things couldn't get worse for Carmelo Anthony, this man denied his request to play for Team USA in the upcoming World Cup, this despite the Towson Catholic alum being perhaps the best player in USA Basketball history and the World Cup roster featuring almost no actual stars among the NBA players who are participating," Director of USA Basketball Jerry Colangelo-G
-"The first real crisis of his tenure as manager occurred last week, as he nearly came to blows with Chris Davis in the Orioles' dugout. He seemed to handle the matter well, getting everyone on the team to keep whatever the issue was in house while Davis returned to being a poor baseball player as usual," O's manager Brandon Hyde-S
-"Perhaps his op-ed for The Athletic yesterday helped play a role in the NCAA reversing the announcement they made last week that players testing the waters could only be represented by agents with four year college degrees. It was known as the "Rich Paul rule" because it clearly appeared to target him," LeBron James' agent Rich Paul-G
-"A tiff between he and Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills became public after Stills criticized his employer for hosting an event that raised 12 million dollars for Donald Trump while also having his name on a charity that pushes for inclusion and equality. He shot back that he supported Trump but disagreed with him on some issues," Dolphins owner Stephen Ross-S
-"During an interview with WEEI in Boston yesterday he confirmed that he still intends to play until the age of 45, which is more terrifying because it genuinely seems realistic considering he just turned 42," Patriots quarterback Tom Brady-G
-"For some sort of reason, he will be joining Jason Benetti to call this Friday's White Sox game on NBC Sports Chicago. We're definitely not sure of what those reasons are," Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton-S
-"After being in some sort of hiding for awhile, we're going to be seeing a lot of him in the coming months. Not only has he agreed to do a couple of comedy specials and star in the Rudy Ray Moore biopic 'Dolemite Is My Name' for Netflix, but he's also got basically the entire original cast back together for a sequel of Coming To America 31 years in the making that will be released next year," 58 year old comedian Eddie Murphy-G
