Leading Off

After squeaking by with a series win in Toronto, the Orioles are headed to Boston, before heading “gnome” for a weekend series against the Indians.

 

Medical Wing

  • Adam Jones continues to deal with a right Shoulder issue and bum toe.  Buck concerned that it wasn’t getting better.  The DL talk has been mentioned, but he is expected back in lineup on Tuesday.
  • Jonathan Schoop doing rehab assignments in Bowie.  
  • Wesley Wright has shown up in two rehab appearances in Norfolk and each time has given up a run.  
  • Jason Garcia transferred to the 60-day DL.
  • Dylan Bundy continues to wait on the shoulder, but still has inflammation.  Is he done?

Haterade

The Orioles/Blue Jays divisional matchup is starting to heat up. Is there a burgeoning rivalry in development? Any time Darren O’Day comes in against Jose Bautista, it’s must-see-TV, we get that. But have the negative feelings from that rather personal beef spilled over to the rest of the roster, and both fan bases?

In order to bring some less provincial opinion to the matter, we turn again to Greg Wisniewski, of Blue Jays Plus. Despite being a Jays’ fan, Greg is an all-around awesome guy, and enlightened baseball fan. For all things Blue Jays, follow him on Twitter @coolhead2010.

Talentless Hacks

Whatever this thing going on between the Cardinals and Houston is, you can bet on one thing: entertainment. What more intrigue could you possibly want? Personal vendettas, corporate espionage, hissy fits from “the best fans in baseball.”

This story has it all. But what would it look like if this story were a little closer to home? In this week’s mini-drama, The Bird’s Eye View Players present Internal Corporate Espionage.

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.
