Leading Off

This week was a bit of a mixed bag. Bad series against the Blue Jays, good series against the Yankees, and a COMPLETE GAME BY UBALDO JIMENEZ (yes, really). Now we see what September has in store for us. Whatever it is, the games will be meaningful…

This Week on the Twitters



Around the Bases


Orioles week in review: wild, and wonderful. Follow along as we take a trip Around the Bases:

First Base – How to we manage our emotions, in the time (season) we have left?

Second Base – Resurgence of Ubaldo Jimenez and Kevin Gausman

Third Base – Roster head scratchers

Home Plate – Who needs to step up now, for the O’s to make it to the promised land in October?


Pick Me Up, Let Me Down


We’ve all seen the hype video before the bottom of the 9th inning. Is it just us, or is this just a little patronizing? Sure, this is Birdland – the home of Orioles Magic. At any time, one of the good guys could put the game away in dramatic fashion, and the totals would become lovely.

But that isn’t always guaranteed to happen. And when things really aren’t going our way, sometimes we just wish that we could have the luxury of brooding in peace.

Jake put together a more “realistic” clip set, that may not rev you up for a comeback, but will certainly match your dark mood.

What do you think the O’s should show, come comeback time? Weigh in on Twitter @birdseyeviewbal, using #HappyEndings #SadEndings.


Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss

Not a good week for either of your intrepid Fantasy Bossers this week. In a battle of wRC+, Scott took the day with Manny Machado (107) over Jake’s pick, Chris Davis (88). This brings Scott to within 2 (11-9). Buckle up, this might get tight.

This week, the category is extra base hits (XBH). Scott took Mark Trumbo, and Jake went with Adam Jones.

Here’s a look at the Wild Cards in play:

Next Oriole to get pulled before the 3rd inning

Scott: Miley

Jake: Gausman


Next Oriole to hit a HR 450+ ft

Scott: Trumbo

Jake: Schoop


Next Oriole with an 8IP start

Scott: Bundy

Jake: Tillman


Next Oriole with a multi home run game.

Scott: Machado

Jake: Trumbo


Who will own it?


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.
