This week wasn’t so depressing. Any time you can take a series from the Royals is a good thing. Sure, they’re headed to the playoffs and the Orioles are not, but when their fans are quiet at Camden Yards, it’s a good day. The Orioles have won five of their last six games. It’s too little, too late, but the games are much more palatable as the schedule runs out.

All this about Harvey's "half outings." Orioles starters have been going half outings all season.

Jonathan Schoop's 23. He has 14 HRs in 69 games in 2015 (33HR pace). He has 29 since 2014 began (3rd most for 2Bman). http://t.co/i84TbMX79B

Jonathan Schoop, and Buy or Sell?
Is Jonathan Schoop the real deal? The guys debate whether Jonathan Schoop has what it takes to become a significant contributor in 2016 and beyond. A player who was less that impressive in his first year has come on strong in an injury-shortened season. Can this continue in the future? Are you buying or selling?
Come to think of it, the guys answer the Buy/Sell question for the following:

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.
