We can’t tell if we love baseball or we hate baseball. The Orioles got pummeled by the Red Sox, but still cling to a Wild Card spot. HOLD ON TO YOUR BUTTS, ORIOLES FANS!

The Orioles are relatively healthy, save:

Listening to @BirdsEyeViewBal on the way to school this morning & my 2½yr old dropped a perfectly timed "Go!" when Ferris Bueller came on.

Drew Stubbs pinch hits for Kim in a one run game. It's a left-right thing, but come on.

If neither Rockies or Dodgers ever score, then we can keep Scully.

Around the Bases – Final Week
In this “September to Remember,” we take one last trip Around the Bases:
First Base – The loss of Jose Fernandez
Second Base – Managing our emotions from the Red Sox series. “Hello Darkness, my old friend…”
Third Base – Final farewells to a few 2016 Orioles?
Home Plate – Preparing for the final week. What lays in store for us?
Jake won this week, taking the under on infield hits for the week (set at 3.5). The Orioles hit three, so the score goes to 13-11-1. Scott needs to win, click on some wild cards, and – like the Orioles – hope for a little help from the baseball universe at large.
Scott picked an easy one this week: an over/under on the number of losses in the remaining six games.
Jake, not understanding anything related to numbers, accidentally took the under, which was set on 3.5. That makes him, by default, the optimist. So if the O’s fail to win, Birdland… it’s all his fault.
Here is a review of the Wild Cards in play:
Next Oriole to hit a HR 450+ ft
Next Oriole pitcher to get ejected for an on-mound incident:
Next Orioles duo to hit HRs in the same inning:
Jake: Trumbo & Davis
Scott: Trumbo & Schoop
Next Oriole with a multi home run game.

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.
Love it? Hate it? Confused? Let us and other listeners know! As always, we appreciate the support.
