Leading Off This week's news and rumors focus on the reunification (and rumored reunification) of the likes of Steve Tollison and L.J. Hoes. Also, that Darren O'Day may sign in Washington. And... that's about it. Matt Wieters accepted his qualifying offer. Now we wait for the Orioles to do something - anything. Welcome to the offseason. The only thing that…

View image | For months, this Georgetown game loomed large as an early test for this highly touted but largely unproven Maryland team. UConn in 3 weeks is a better team, and North Carolina (with or without Marcus Paige) is the cream of the crop. Coming into this season, Georgetown looked like a fringe top-25 team centered around one terrific…

Yack is awake! The boys salute our amazing Veterans in the open as Yack recounts his days as a short order cook back in the mid 90's out at sea during his tenure in the Navy. Great Scott O'Grady story (google him). Rich "convinces" himself that the Skins are being disrespected by the oddsmakers as the Saints are slight road favs. Yack and Jab both think the Jags can win outright this Sunday at the Bank over the Ravens. They finish the show with their locks (gotta listen to get them) as they are a sparkling 29-18-1 ATS record through 8 weeks. Tell just one of your degenerate friends that this is the real Big Fat Winners radio podcast.

West was drafted in the 2014 draft in the third round (94th overall) by the Cleveland Browns. There was talk at the time that the Ravens were trying to move up and take the former Towson…


Leading Off Welcome to the Offseason! The Orioles have gotten off to a roaring start, by offering Qualifying Offers to Wei-Yin Chen, Matt Wieters, and Chris Davis. Those players now have a draft pick hanging around their head, leading to the most obvious question: how will the Orioles botch those three draft picks? The GM Meetings have started, and rumors…

BSR Podcast

The World Series is over and unfortunately Patrick Guthrie's Mets didn't win. Jab and Zach check in on their pal to see how he's coping and ask about the experience of watching your favorite team in the Fall Classic. The guys also discuss the Maryland Terrapins being atop ESPN's preseason rankings, the possibility of the Ravens reuniting with Jacoby Jones and the Orioles upcoming offseason outlook.


The boys get off to a sleepy start as Yack forgot to set his alarm for the 9 PM show. But once Yack gets in a latte, Rich and Jab join him in discussing the Nats manager debacle to open the show. They next talk about their surprise NFL teams at the midway point of the season before previewing the Redskins/Patriots upcoming game. They finish off the show with their all important Locks of the Week, which as a group they are hitting at an absurd 62% wins ATS through 8 weeks. Tell a friend.
