Nick Markakis is frustrated with the O's approach

Jun 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun listened to an obviously frustrated Nick Markakis hold forth on the miserable season the Orioles are having at the plate.

Mostly it’s a matter of approach: “Sometimes, guys are going up there and it looks like they have no idea
what they’re doing . . . you need guys in there who have a plan,
who have a clue and who know how to execute that plan and get on base.”

And it’s not a coaching matter, Markakis says: “[Terry Crowley] has 110 percent nothing to do with the way we are going about our
business at the plate and on the field right now . . .  If you go up there clueless, you’re going to come back [to the dugout]
clueless. It’s that simple.”

According to Zrebiec, Juan Samuel is in full agreement, so this isn’t a situation in which someone is lashing out.  At least as far as management is concerned, Markakis is just telling it like it is.

    I’d be worried if the hitting coach has 110 percent nothing to do with how the hitters are doing.
