The Oakland series hurt to watch – but did it hurt too much? Jake and Scott debate whether Orioles/Athletics has become a rivalry, when you consider that the two teams have risen to prominence at about the same time. The 2012 AL MOY award came down to Buck Showalter and Bob Melvin. Since then, the teams have been coming to prominence, even in the absence of love from the national media.
That all being said, is this a RIVALRY?
Scott is quick to point out that all of this means… nothing. Jake whines. It’s a standard BEV offering.
