Another great week for the Orioles leads into the 4-game home/away series with the Washington Nationals. After the Drink of the Week, the guys remind you about the

Battle of the Walgreens
Jake is joined by former roommate and confirmed Nats fan Josh Finver (@NatDiscourse) to discuss the Orioles/Nationals… thing. Is it a rivalry? Perhaps not. But you know what? It’s still fun, if you do it right. Baltimore and Washington have a long history of denying one another of sports teams, and if that can’t build a friendly competition, what can?
The O’s and Nats are good, and the games are meaningful. Regardless of what label we put on the Battle of the Beltway, the four game series should make for entertaining baseball.
It’s that time again: We all need more moaning Alex Trebek in our life. Here’s hat the mustache himself had to say:

- Team Steve
- The case for/against TJ McFarland
- John Lackey’s sour grapes
DID JAKE WIN?!?! Miracles do happen, folks. Nick Markakis out BABIP’d Delmon Young, and the score continues to favor Scott, at 8-4-2. This week, the category is OBP. Scott goes with Steve Pearce and Jake selects “Mr. Walk” Adam Jones.
Who will own it?

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.
