Leading Off

Turn out the lights – this one is over. The 2017 season has ended for the Baltimore Orioles, and for the first time since 2011, we’re staring a losing season in the face. Maybe those PECOTA guys knew what they were talking about? Or something

This Week on the Twitters



Around the Bases (Sort Of)


The Orioles’ season is undeniably over. But we’re just not ready. We’re not ready to break down exactly what happened in 2017, and to start forecasting for 2018. I mean, how long can we continue to say get starting pitching. No, real starting pitching?”
We’re just not ready. Maybe the prospect of our first losing season in six years gave us some fatigue. Actually, let’s stop and talk about that for a minute… do you think the long season, and the way it ended caused fan fatigue in general, and for you, personally?
OK, so we’re not ready. All that will wait for a future offseason show. In the meantime, let’s go around the bases.

They Are Who They Thought We Were

Are these guys who who we thought they were? We talk through which of the 2017 Orioles are more likely to be the guys they were this past season.

Scott puts a wrinkle in it by asking us which Oriole is more likely to repeat their 2017 performance:

  • Manny Machado or Jonathan Schoop
  • Trey Mancini or Tim Beckham
  • Chris Davis or Mark Trumbo
  • Dylan Bundy or Kevin Gausman
  • Brad Brach or Zach Britton


The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly


Who had a great week? Who had a tough week? Who made us ashamed to be Orioles fans? Find out in this week’s GB&U. The guys run through their Good, Bad, and Ugly for the week.

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.
