Orioles respond to Blue Jays’ disrespectful comments by annihilating them again

Toronto's manager thought it was important to try and tone down the praise of the Orioles. That was a tragic error on his part.

It is almost never a good idea to give any team locker room bulletin board material, let alone a team as good as the Baltimore Orioles. Time and time again, an opposing player or coach decides to drag a player or team because they are feeling themselves, and time after time, it goes poorly. Blue Jays manager John Schneider just found that out the hard way.

After the Orioles beat up Toronto on Monday, Schneider decided to give the Orioles quite the backhanded compliment when asked about how tough it is to play against this current O's unit.

While Schneider may not have MEANT any disrespect, but one may want to temper one's comments when talking about a team that just destroyed you, as well as one you still have to play against the next day. Schneider obviously said whatever popped into his head at that moment and Baltimore responded by beating the Blue Jays even worse on Tuesday by the score of 10-1.

Ryan Mountcastle continues rampage against Blue Jays as Orioles respond to John Schneider

The Orioles' annihilation of Toronto was truly a team effort, as the offense was humming and Corbin Burnes was his usual excellent self. However, their star on Tuesday was unquestionably Ryan Mountcastle, who cracked a pair of home runs and drove in five runs.

Mountcastle's numbers against the Blue Jays, especially in Toronto, are comically good and probably have the Blue Jays trying to offer their farm system to acquire him. The newly called up Connor Norby also got his first big league hit with a home run in the eighth inning, which was a nice moment as well.

As for Schneider, you would have thought that he would have learned his lesson from Monday and done more tipping of his cap to the Orioles without any backhandness. However, he just couldn't help himself when he was asked about Mountcastle's success against the Blue Jays, stating, "There’s a few hitters we face who I feel like we talk about quite a bit, whether it’s this team or another team. You have to execute your pitches. If you’re throwing [stuff] in the middle of the zone and hoping for a good result, it’s probably not going to happen against Ryan Mountcastle, or against me. You have to execute."

Never change, John Schneider. Never change.
