On Sunday, Orioles fans were given the opportunity to give J.J. Hardy a fond send-off in what was definitely the last home game of the 2017, and what may very well be the final Orioles home game of Hardy’s career. Say what you will about the 2017 season (and we will), but that game was as special as the player it celebrated.
WHY IS IT SO DUSTY IN HERE?!?!
Join us for The Drink of the Week and see who has been admitted to The Medical Wing.

Pitching for the Orioles is like playing Oregon Trail as the farmer; it’s a good way to prove how hardcore you are. https://t.co/i6gbUgm0n8

We've reached the "Gary and Jim badly singing the Mission Impossible theme song" part of the game.

And no matter how tough this season has been, and how frustrating it is that we're not playing on, J.J. made it all worth it today.

For the final home game of the season, Buck Showalter brings the lineup card to home plate. Usually only does it for first game of series.

Base on this crowd. I think the Orioles shouldn’t worry about signing Manny or a pitcher just focus on more giveaways to pack the yard.

A Visit From Andrew Stetka
(Final) Game Day Experience
Scott went to Saturday’s (hoodie) game, and Jake went to Sunday’s home finale. The guys talk through their experiences, and the things that make attending an Orioles game, in person, truly special.
Jake takes the 2017 Fantasy Boss crown. With Miguel Castro out ground-ball-out-ing Scott’s pick, Richard Bleier, Jake wins the contest by a score of 7-5-2.
We ask you, Bird’s Eye View listeners:
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.
