Leading Off

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.


Medical Wing

  • 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

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.


Fantasy Boss


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 won this week, in part, because he took advantage of Jake’s delicate emotional state, as the losses piled up for the Orioles. He asked for an over/under on runs, and set it at 10.5 for the six games over the course of the week. Jake took the under, and… well, the Orioles scored plenty of runs, but gave up even more. That brings the season’s core to 10-9-1.
This week’s category: Over/under on Orioles’ quality starts (Scott set line at 1.5)
Jake’s pick: Over
Scott’s pick: Under
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.
