That grinding sound you hear is the bottom of the Orioles bandwagon rubbing against the ground. You see, the wheels have fallen off of it. Or it is us, silently weeping in a corner. Take your pick.
With that, it is definitely time to check in on the Drink of the Week.

Double for Dariel Alvarez. His first MLB hit. Beltre gets the ball — jokes like he is throwing it to crowd, but tosses it to Os dugout

Unsure whether the more foolish group of people is the ones watching Ravens game that doesn't count or those watching Orioles game that does

Worth mentioning trading Arrieta isn't why O's SP are bad. They're bad b/c O's can't develop SP & the only SP they spent $ on was U. Jimenez

This Week in the ****er
We’ve had a bit of a rocky relationship with MLB Advanced Media, but we were able to negotiate some exclusive content, for use in our review of this week’s action. Take a listen to the sounds that made up the magic of Orioles Baseball this past week.
Also, what will the Orioles do when rosters expand on September 1st? Buck Showalter says that managing in September is like a completely different season. We have to hope that is the case, because the current season is not that much fun to watch.
This week, the frustration boils over, as Jake and Scott take opposite ends of a “discussion” about whether or not Manny Machado has gotten off too lightly with showing his temper.
The platinum glover has had his fair share of dust-ups over the year. Where do you stand? Is he over to top, or are we just being hot heads?
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.
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.
