DJ Stewart's bomb reminded me of something important: that Nate McLouth home run hit the foul pole.

Game 162 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Adam Jones should start in center field.
Agree? Agree. Tell Buck to make this happen, @Orioles. Please and thanks.

The Orioles are 59.5 games back with seven to play. No AL team has finished 60 games out of first since the 1954 Athletics.

If the Orioles take a pitcher over Bobby Witt Jr. with the number one pick I may quit my fandom.

You Write the Headline
Sometimes, writers have no control over the headlines their articles appear under. Editors looking for clicks, shock and awe will get creative. Sometimes, the headlines are spot on. In an age in which it is impossible to tell the news article from the comments section, we review a few honest-to-God, real life headlines about the Baltimore Orioles.
By the way, none of them are from local blogs or websites. None are from media outlets owned by opposing teams. This is not Fake News. The Orioles are dreadful, and that is objective fact.
So, as we bravely face the remaining games in this historically bad season, send us your headline – could be for the game, or for the season. Something that sums up exactly how you feel. Tweet us @birdseyeviewbal.
Truth or Truth
How bad is this team? So bad that we have gone back to steal another late night comedy bit. We dare to uncover the truthiness in this installment of Truth or Truth.
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.
