It’s a rare Saturday edition of Bird’s Eye View – sorry for the schedule change, but we’re pretty sure that your earholes can handle it. The Orioles continue to prepare in Sarasota, and Baltimore weather reminds us that we need baseball season, now more than ever.

The Medical Wing
Remember: It’s OK if you giggle.
This week, the Medical Wing is occupied by:
- Chris Tillman – shoulder
- J.J. Hardy – back spasms
- Michael Bourn – broken finger
- Wade Miley – bruise
- Johnny Giavatella – hand soreness
This Week on the Twitters
McFarland, 27, was released by Os last week. Was a favorite of Showalter's and the relievers. But he had a rough, injury-plagued 2016. https://t.co/ZWL8Julrxj

Are we about to get to the part of the broadcast where Joe Angel makes fun of Tropicana Field incessantly?

Old Man Radio, with Derek Arnold
Derek Arnold, the editor of Eutaw Street Report joins us revel in Old Man Radio, and to look ahead to what the Orioles will be in 2017 and beyond. We discuss the outfield roster, pace of play rules, and the closing of the competitive window.
We risk hairy palms and engage in a little casual rosterbation. Are there any real question marks, or is this thing set? Are there any pieces of the puzzle that might come from outside the organization? Dan Duquette has been known to make late moves to improve the club.
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.
Love it? Hate it? Confused? Let us and other listeners know! As always, we appreciate the support.
