Thirteen games into the season, and the Orioles are contenders in the AL East. We could get used to this. This week’s episode focuses on the Boston series, and all the thing the things that came out of it. Spoiler Alert: Adam Jones is freaking awesome… and we’re not really going to touch on it. There are too many other interesting stories going on in Orioles baseball this week.
This Week on the Twitters (TWotT)
If you’re an O’s fan, what you’re hoping is for real about Jones isn’t the HR% or SLG but the K%, which at 8.7 is under half his career

Jake took a trip to Boston, and well… he was embarrassingly complimentary of the experience. Wait until September when the games count, and he’s more bitter. This week’s podcast includes tales of NY bathrooms, the middle finger, and a love affair with a classic stadium.
At least it was only Jordan Baker who ejected prematurely.

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.
