Yes, that is a “Miley” pun, for the episode title. No, we’re not sorry. Ladies and gentlemen, the Orioles did stuff at the trade deadline. We can’t say that it was particularly impressive stuff, but it was stuff. The O’s have been scuffling, but remain in first place.
Also, we heart Steve Pearce. Like whoa.

The #Orioles are showing that it's hard to be a buyer when you don't have anything worthwhile to sell.

Happy Birthday, 'Cap10. @SimplyAJ10

The #Orioles just signed a guy who was pitching in Japan to their 25-man roster in late July. That's bizarre even by their standards.

There’s a lot going on right now. With that, it’s time to go Around the Bases.
First Base – Trade Deadline acquisitions
Second Base – Lackluster offensive performance
Third Base – Series to avoid
Home Plate – Upcoming Schedule
Jake takes the week, as Chris Davis ended up in the over of 10.5 strikeouts. The score is no 7-5, and Scott is on the clock for the next category.
This week, we go very simple, as we look to see which Oriole tallies the most dongs. Jake went with new/returning Oriole, Steve Pearce, whereas Scott took Manny Machado.
Don’t forget about our 2016 Fantasy Boss Wild Cards!
Next Oriole to hit a triple.
Jake: Wieters (yes, really)
Next Oriole to hit a HR 450+ ft
Next Oriole with an 8IP start
Next Oriole with 10+ Ks
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.
