It’s January, which means the Orioles hot stove is juuuuuuust about to get warm. It’s the new appliance inefficiency. The O’s have made a couple of moves to keep us interested, minicamps are under way, and Fan Fest is right around the corner. Next week, we should even have some spring weather.

The Al(an) Smith Call
We’re joined by Alan Smith, former(??) host of the Baltimorons podcast to discuss the things that have (and have not) taken place this offseason.
We talk Welington Castillo, Seth Smith, Mark Trumbo, and we engage in a little healthy rosterbation. Follow Alan on Twitter @ASmith4OurTime and @bmorons. Check the back catalog of Baltimorons episodes at bmorons.com.
Blowing the Save
Most podcasts try to end on a high note – the perfect coda to a quality program. That’s just not our style. Each week, we’ll end on a weak note, blowing the save with an item that didn’t quite fit into the episode, or something they simply need to get off their chests. It’s our version of taking the ball and pulling a Kevin Gregg.
Love it? Hate it? Confused? Let us and other listeners know! As always, we appreciate the support.
