Leading Off

Bird’s Eye View goes old school, by lifting a Beatles song title. Jake took to his underground bunker in the basement, as Snowpacalypse 2017 descends upon us. Get ready for The Snowtorious BIG with this week’s episode of Bird’s Eye View. OK, so perhaps a bit dramatic, but the health and wellness of Chris Tillman have put a damper on the excitement of Opening Day being only (at time of recording) Nick Markakis days away.

Remember to listen to Bird’s Eye View on Google Play Music!

The Medical Wing

Remember: It’s OK if you giggle.

This week, the Medical Wing is occupied by:

  • Chris Davis – bronchitis
  • J.J. Hardy – back is back
  • Caleb Joseph – just a flesh wound (on his arm)
  • Seth Smith – hamstring

Thank You Notes



It’s Monday, which is always a busy day for us here at Bird’s Eye View. We fell behind, and so with all apologies*, we try to catch up by writing out some Thank You Notes.

*Apologies also to Jimmy Fallon, from whom we ripped this bit.


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.
