Another quiet week. Sound familiar? The Orioles have managed to settle with a number of their arbitration eligible players, and sign more catcher depth. Other than that… well… sorry, that’s all we’ve got. After the usual pleasantries including The Drink of the Week, it’s time for the TWotT (This Week on the Twitters):
- @danduquette asks a question that we would very much like to ask him.
- @TheRealJGuts gets it.
- @Jim22Palmer is getting better at this Twitter thing.
- @fearthefin shares a joke that was seemingly written for Scott.
- @BudNorris25 further endears himself to Orioles fans.
- @SJohnson83 rightfully tells us to shut it.
The Long Conn
To discuss the shift back to WJZ, and to help us decide what sports yakkers should be talking about during this Orioles news dead zone, we chat with Jeremy Conn, co-host of the Scott Garcieau Show with Jeremy Conn.

The Whole Dan Shooting Match
We’ve nearly exhausted the “will he or won’t he” conversation, in regard to Dan Duquette leaving for Toronto. The angle that hasn’t been as well represented is what this situation looks like from the Blue Jays’ perspective. To get a little insight, we talk to Greg Wisniewski from Blue Jays Plus. BJP is a blog and podcast focused on the Jays, and their tag line suggests they’re a little like us:
The Name Says Plus, But We Strive for Solid Average
Greg walks us through the view from up north, and gives us his opinion on whether or not Duquette takes the job, and what – if anything – the Orioles can expect in return.
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.
