O Cap10! My Cap10! our fearful trip is done…
It has finally come to an end: the Orioles 2018 season, the Adam Jones era, the Buck Showalter era… it’s been an emotional roller coaster. In this, the final episode of the regular season, we reflect, we remember, and we rant.
Welcome to Bird’s Eye View.

Here is what is happening in the world of Orioles Baseball, in 280 characters, or fewer:
It was legitimately amazing to see the crowd of, like, 5,000 people get extremely loud for Jones and Jones alone

Also, Adam Jones was asked about the team running out of pitchers: "That’s a question for somebody in player personnel, not a player."

Speaking of, tonight at Camden Yards, you can get a good deal on apparel of players who aren’t with the Orioles anymore—hey wait a second. pic.twitter.com/ZArZyD15l5

O Cap10! My Cap10!
With such a disappointing season, the only thing worth watching for was the Cap10. Adam Jones played what is almost certainly his final game in an Orioles uniform on Sunday, and SOMEONE KEPT CHOPPING ONIONS. We review the pomp, the circumstance, and dare we say it? The Orioles Magic of it all.
Oh, there were other storylines besides Adam Jones? Sure. We spend some cycles talking Buck Showalter’s apparent departure, looking back at any signs of hope, and reviewing the greatest disappointments from the 2018 season.
The Orioles made us feel a certain way, and we have only one way to process those feelings, here at BEV.
Remember Fantasy Boss? Do you? Well, we look to break the two-week tie. Someone is going to win. 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.
