This has been a weird week. The Orioles have been no-hit, they have erupted in an 18-run blowout, and they have found themselves in the driver’s seat of the AL Wild Card race. Orioles fans, you have our permission to freak out – It’s been weird. What are the Orioles playoff odds? We have no idea – it’s been that kind of season.

And O's, for the love of god, please give Machado a blank contract to fill in like now.

This Ups and the Downs
Never Tell Me the Odds
There are plenty of scenarios that could occur the rest of the season. What’s the Over/Under on them occurring? Jake and Scott break it down with “baseless opinion” and their signature “lack of insight.” Feel free to let us know what you think the over/under is, and what issues we failed to raise.
Fantasy Boss is our head-to-head fantasy segment where we pick one stat, and select a player. Feel free to play along, and tweet us your #FantasyBoss pick @birdseyeviewbal.
Scott’s Pick: Zach Britton
Jake’s Pick: Mychal Givens
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.
