Leading Off

As we begin June, the Orioles are adrift, just as listless as the rest of the AL East. Nope, that doesn’t make us feel any better, either. Here’s hoping they can right the ship, and make something of this 2015 season.


Medical Wing

  • Adam Jones is Day to Day with Left Ankle Sprain; Three Games out of CF; Returned to lineup on Monday as DH. 
  • Hardy is complaining about left side sorness. Buck hasn’t wanted to categorize as a…..
  • Wieters is coming back this week on Thursday/Friday.
  • Bud Norris making another rehab start on Tuesday.  Might be a candidate to come back at the end of this week.
  • Gausman finally pitching rehab games in MiLB starting Saturday.

This Week on the Twitters (TWotT)

To Swing, or Not to Swing?


What is going on with the Orioles’ lineup? Jake was called out for being… emotional after Saturday’s frustrating loss. It’s not that he was wrong, it’s just that he was… emoting. Everything seems to be going wrong at the same time for the O’s hitters. Scott lays out the tale of two months, and gives us an idea of what may be coming.


The Language of Glove


Baseball gives us a rich, beautiful language specific to the game we love. Words and phrases we take for granted may be completely foreign to to those less familiar with the game. We run through a few of our favorites, and then spend some time in the Bird’s Eye View Poetry Corner.


Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss is our head-to-head fantasy segment where we pick one stat, and select a player. Scott is the reigning Fantasy Boss champion, so he got the first selection. Feel free to play along, and tweet us your #FantasyBoss pick @birdseyeviewbal.

Jake picks up a rare win, and brings the contest back to 5-2. Both of use chose poorly in working through RE24. If you were wondering who had the best RE24 last week, it was Chris Davis. No, really. Now, on to Week 7:

Weighted Grounded into Double Play Runs (wGDP)

Scott’s Pick: Jimmy Paredes

Jake’s Pick: David Lough

The gauntlet has been thrown. Who will own it?


The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly


Who had a great week? Who had a tough week? Who made us ashamed to be Orioles fans? Find out in this week’s GB&U. The guys run through their Good, Bad, and Ugly for the week.

Tweet us your selections @birdseyeviewbal with #OsGood, #OsBad, and #OsUgly.


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.
