Ted Berg (USA Today) joins us to waggle the finger of caution in passing judgement on Manny Machado’s recent antics. Alan pays tribute to one of America’s finer tariffs of yesteryear, and the Taylor Teagarden Franchise Report examines the loss of Matt Wieters, the 6-man rotation, and the World Cup.

PLUS: the triumphant return of the Baltimorons Culture Corner (TM)!
