Leading Off

Well, the Orioles have Spring Training win, so that’s… something. And hey, Hyun Soo Kim has a hit. The Birds even have Pedro Alvarez (and yes, that means Scott’s dark horse roster candidate is on the team). What’s more, we’re only 19 days away from Opening Day. Hang in there, Birdland – we’re almost there.

Thanks to everyone who watched our episode preview on Periscope. Find us on Periscope – birdseyeviewbal. Each week, we’ll broadcast an episode preview as well as the worst ideas that didn’t make the show.

How Deep Is Your Glove?


Matt Wieters gave fans a nice little scare this week, by being removed from a Spring Training game with elbow soreness. This may amount to nothing, but it got us to wondering: what does the Orioles’ depth look like at the catcher position? Beyond that, what does the depth look like around the diamond? We discuss areas of strengths and weaknesses, and try to dispassionately determine how the O’s stack up against the rest of the league.


Spring Training Update, with Ryan Blake


When you’re sitting at home, waiting for the season to start, Spring Training can be the worst. It’s fake baseball. And a lot of it sucks. But when you’re there, it’s amazing. We asked Ryan Blake to join us, and share his experiences from his trip to Sarasota.


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.

Tweet us your selections @birdseyeviewbal with #OsGood, #OsBad, and #OsUgly.


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.
