TWO WHOLE DAYS WITHOUT BASEBALL?!?! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!! The Rangers series was cut short, leaving the Orioles on the short end of a 1-2 split of the three games played. Do we admit to this being their first series loss, or do we hold out hope for the makeup game in June? The O’s spoiled us with seven straight wins, before losing three of their last four. Which is the real 2016 team?

We start, as always, with the Drink of the Week. Make sure to tell us what you’re up to via Twitter (@birdseyeviewbal), or on Untapped (jakee4025 and magn8606).


This Medical Wing

This week’s Medical Wing has the following patients:

This Week on the Twitters


The Pen Is Mightier


Is the bullpen really what it seems? And by that, we mean this: is our perception of the bullpen correct? We take a look at the first 11 games of 2016, and make some interesting notes of comparison through the Buck Showalter era. The thing that will allow this team to sink or swim is the pitching. So the question really is: is the pen mightier?


Half a Moron


Editorial Note: this is actually Alan Smith, of the Baltimorons podcast, pictured above.

OK, perhaps not. But Alan does join us to discuss the excitement of the Orioles’ hot start, and this strange feeling from atop the AL East standings.
Alan is half of the tremendous BSRN sister-wife podcast, Baltimorons. They were our first guest on BEV, and are truly amazing guys. Please follow the show on Twitter @bmorons, and listen into their “Baseball Things Considered” at bmorons.com.


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.
