Leading Off

Fresh off the All-Star break, it’s time for the first place Orioles to put the pedal to the medal, and see if they have what it takes to play into October. In the meantime, they may want to consider starting pitching. Like… doing it.

The Drink of the Week has gone from drowning our sorrows to celebrating wins. If you’re “celebrating” along, tell us what you’re up to via Twitter (@birdseyeviewbal), or on Untapped (jakee4025 and magn8606).

Starting Pitching… A New Low



Orioles starting pitching has been… an adventure in 2016. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder, they just keep finding ways. Most recently, the Orioles gave a 3.1 inning start to Dylan Bundy, in what became known as #BundayFunday. We discuss the costs and benefits of this strategy, and poke holes in the Birds’ strategy moving forward.


Crime and Punishment


So Christopher Correa is going to do the time (46 months, to be exact) for a little corporate espionage. This is all very interesting, but what we want to know is this: what kind of punishment gets doled out for Crimes Against Birdland? We take turns listing horrific offenses, and their associated punishments. Scott looks for a little help with one – don’t let him down, O’s fans.


Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss

Man, Fantasy Boss is a bummer when there are only three games. Scotts pick, Jonathan Schoop, out RBI’d Jake’s pick, Chris Davis – the score was 1-0.

Speaking of score, that ties up the score at 5-5. Jake picked percentage of first-pitch strikes by a starter not named Chris Tillman. You know, a totally standard stat! Scott went with the Vanimal himself, Vance Worley. Jake selected Yovani Gallardo.Remember that our Wild Cards are still in place:

Next Oriole to hit a triple.

Scott: Schoop

Jake: Wieters (yes, really)


Next Oriole to hit a HR 450+ ft

Scott: Trumbo

Jake: Schoop


Next Oriole with an 8IP start

Scott: Gausman

Jake: Tillman


Next Oriole with 10+ Ks

Scott: Tillman

Jake: Wilson

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.

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.
