It’s the home stretch. The Orioles may not be where we had hoped in the standings, but take this opportunity to take in some Orioles Baseball. The final series bring the Blue Jays and Yankees to Camden Yards. After the usual pleasantries, we start the show with the Drink of the Week.
This Week on the Twitters
Lost in the Papelbon madness is the fact that the Orioles were shut out of a series facing Rich Hill, Craig Breslow and Henry Owens #RedSox

#Orioles lose finale in Boston 2-0. First time they've been shut out 3 straight games since July 29-31, 1957. Scoreless in last 28 innings.

#orioles swept at Fenway for 1st time since July 7-10, 2011. Must go 6-1 this week to finish above .500

Firing Showalter and reuniting Jason Varitek with Duquette would be an excellent move for the #Orioles this offseason.

Oh, the Drama
Really? Are we really at a point where fans are starting to question Buck Showalter? We can sorta understand questioning Dan Duquette. We talk to Alex Conway (@AlexConwayCC) of Camden Chat, to discuss his recent article about potential plans of succession. Get your tin foil hats out everyone, it’s conspiracy theory time!
Remember how awesome it was to eliminate the Red Sox in 2011? Yeah, well after tasting real success in later years, victories like those seem cheap and hollow. Cheap and hollow is, however, all we have to look forward to in 2011. We discuss the merits of celebrating being a footnote of history.

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.
