Mac Montandon (@maccabeem) has written a book on jetpacks, edited one on Tom Waits, and works as an editor for Fast Company and Mental Floss. Not bad for a native son of Baltimore, who flopped, hard, in his brief tryout for the Orioles. He stops by Hootenanny Studios to tell us about that fateful day (and preceding evening), and receives a complimentary psychological evaluation in the process.

Meanwhile, the Tito Landrum Franchise Report inhales the latest aromas from Orioles camp in Sarasota, and also provides a powerful reminder of Tito’s brief, yet beautiful moment of glory.
