Leading Off

It was not fun watching the Orioles in New York. then it was not fun watching the Orioles in Boston. Thank goodness this week is over. Let’s forget that ever happened, and move on. The Orioles are riding high – hanging out at a half game behind the surprisingly surging New York Yankees. Let’s forget a possible Zach Britton injury, and note that the O’s are winning games.

Hashtag Happy Thoughts.


The Medical Wing

The Medical Wing is at full capacity this week It’s absurd how many people are hurt, and how significant some of the injuries are.

  • Zach Britton – left forearm strain 2.0
  • Gabriel Ynoa – hamstring
  • Francisco Pena – thumb cramp
  • Wade Miley – target practice
  • Jonathan Schoop – hand bruise/swelling
  • Welington Castillo – neck spasms/shoulder discomfort –

Around the Bases


And what a week it was. In this edition of Around the Bases, we discuss:

First Base: The Return of Chris Tillman

Second Base: What do you call a non-rivalry?

Third Base: Greetings for Future Former Orioles

Home Plate: Upcoming Orioles schedule




Deep Cuts

Scott has replaced our old Fantasy Boss segment with something he can hope to win. After having had his doors blown off in successive seasons, he unveiled Deep Cuts, a segment that pits Jake’s love of old, obscure music against Scott’s desire to talk stats.

The concept is simple. Scott presents a deep cut each week (usually something from the 60s to the 80s), and if Jake can’t name the artist and song, then Scott’s stat talk goes on as planned.

It’s a brutal game. C# Major vs. Barrels.

Who will own it?



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.
