Leading Off

We hope you’re dry as you listen to this episode, and that there has been no recent rain delay. SD Studios is a bit soggy for Episode 240, as we discuss a win-less week of Orioles Baseball.

Another week of nothing good to say about our favorite team. If you’re enjoying the season so far, there’s something masochistic about you – we like that in a baseball fan. Keep it up.

Join us for The Drink of the Week. Don’t forget to drink socially with us on Untappd.

This Week on the Twitters

Here is what is happening in the world of Orioles Baseball, in 280 characters, or fewer:

 

Around the Bases

 

We go around the bases, trying to outrun the raindrops, and trying to get closer to scoring than the Baltimore Orioles. Topics discussed include:

  • Resetting projections
  • Dan Duquette facing reality
  • The MLB Draft

Fantasy Boss

It’s another push this week. Just like the Orioles, we’ve accomplished nothing in the last seven days. In our Either/Or this week, both guys “clicked.”

Scott correctly guessed that there would be more Orioles’ runs than opponents’ first inning runs.

Jake correctly guessed that the Caps would win more games than the Orioles.

We got some good feedback about this format, so we’re going to stick with it for now.

Scott’s Category: Will there be more Orioles’ victories, or 25-man roster moves? — Scott picked roster moves.

Jake’s Category: Will there be more Orioles’ home runs, or more home runs given up by Orioles relievers? — Jake picked home runs given up.

 

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.
