Can you feel the magic? No? Well, this is the 2015 season. Buckle up, it’s going to be rough. But we are here to provide the soul ointment.
And by “soul ointment,” we’re definitely referring to the Drink of the Week.
- Adam Jones – day to day with right shoulder soreness
- Matt Wieters – day to day with left wrist soreness
- J.J. Hardy – eligible to come off the DL on September 8… will he?
- Miguel Gonzalez – 15-day DL with right shoulder tendonitis

HOW do you give up 11 runs (and counting) in 2 games against the Rays. It's beyond sad.

At this point, you would need some scientifically impossible 250 proof alcohol to erase memories of the O's last month.

Chris Davis: To Be, or Not to Be?
Chris Davis is going to get paid a lot of money in the offseason, because he can hit the baseball very far. But will it be the Orioles giving him that money? The guys have an honest, objective discussion about Davis’ skillset, the money he can garner on the open market, and admit their own biases when it comes to “the Big Fella.”
What will the Orioles do with the first baseman, and if not Davis, then who? Listen in to find out what reasonable options exist in the organization, in free agency, and in trades.

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.

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.
