Jarrod Dyson doesn’t think the ALCS is going back to Baltimore

31 Comments

Jarrod Dyson has been a pretty electrifying performer this postseason. And now he’s adding in some smack talk to the overall vibe of things. On Saturday night he was asked if he thought he’d be going back to Baltimore for a possible Game 6 and/or Game 7 of the ALCS:

“No, sir, I don’t. And I don’t think they think that way, either.’’

Referring to the Orioles, who need to take two of three in Kansas City to force a Game Six back at Camden Yards.

For his part, O’s outfielder Adam Jones said that Dyson does not speak for them. Buck Showalter didn’t take issue with it publicly, saying that Dyson had a right to be cocky.

Which he does. The Royals have pretty much owned the postseason so far. Hard to fault a guy for having confidence.
