This is it – the last podcast before we have real, live baseball to talk about. A week out from Opening Day, we’re joined by Jeff Long of Baseball Prospectus and Matt Taylor of Roar From 34 in order to squeeze every last drop of Spring Training content.
Join us for our live show at Ram’s Head, at 6:00pm on April 6, 2017. Use promo code “Birdseye” for $5 off tickets. Come for the Bird’s Eye View live podcast – stay for the main event with local Orioles media. Oh, and the bar is open. We’ll have some friends from the Bird-O-Sphere join us, and look forward to sharing a few drinks of the week with all of you who show up.
Remember to listen to Bird’s Eye View on Google Play Music!
The Medical Wing
Remember: It’s OK if you giggle.

Long, Long, Long
Jeff Long of Baseball Prospectus joins us to talk PECOTA (teach your kids it’s not a dirty word), Barrells, and weighted balls. It’s Bird’s Eye View – of course it came down to ball talk.
It’s All Too Much
Matt Taylor is the creative force behind Roar From 34, and is a great friend of the program. Matt joined us for his usual Spring Training spot, and found new and interesting ways to break our hearts.
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.
