Leading Off

The Winter Meetings are in full swing, which means it’s time for the Orioles to do what they do best: sit on their hands and wait for the other teams to wear themselves out. That’s right. Dan Duquette will stick to his modus operandi and play the long con. Mainly, he’s going to con us into thinking that the O’s will make moves.

This Week on the Twitters

Auditions, Round 1


With Scott declaring free agency, Jake looks to the new market inefficiency of Orioles podcasting: the Korean market. Jake is joined by Dong-Sun Park, who brings his own lack of insight and baseless opinion, sharing in the international language of baseball.

Scott, on the other hand, did… something. He showed up, do to a contractual obligation from his 2015 agreement.

Winter Meetings


While he was here, Scott was good enough to spend some time opining on Orioles items, such as:

  • Steve Pearce
  • The Orioles’ shopping
  • Mark Trumbo
  • Michael Saunders
  • Brach-for-Granderson
  • Manny Machado extension talk

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.
