We blew off the podcast last night so that we could play hooky and enjoy the last dying rays of the summer sun. But now the school year is upon us, and as we know, that means a precipitous attendance drop is on the way.
Heh. We’ve got jokes.
The Orioles beat the Blue Jays. So there’s that.
We need your help – be sure to listen through for a request for an event planner and a scrapbooker.
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:

This is baseball’s biggest problem and not pace of play. I would buy a ticket to an MLB game to see the first glimpse of Guerrero right now. The Blue Jays are playing a washed up catcher at 3B. That product will drive away more fans than a game going over 3 hours

Can you imagine how irritating Beatles Twitter would have been and also how obnoxious Rolling Stones Twitter would have been in response

We need a statement from @MLB on why this happened and whether it will happen again. Teams need clear guidance on rules/policies so they can all operate equally. RT @PitchingNinja: Austin Davis getting his notes taken away by Joe West. 😐📒 pic.twitter.com/9V3hFC2aWu

Around the Bases
September callup review: how did we do last week? And what we mean by that is “how did the Orioles do this week?”
The Toilet Bowl against the Kansas City Royals. Jake… may have missed this one.
“Back to School” is a big deal in the BEV households. This made us pull out the Bird’s Eye View Course Catalog and recommend some remedial courses for some of our Birds.
When will we know things are different? This question had us in our most philosophical moods… ish.
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.
Tweet us your selections @birdseyeviewbal with #OsGood, #OsBad, and #OsUgly.
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.
