Leading Off

With about two weeks remaining until Opening Day, these are the times that try fans’ souls. Can the Orioles get to April 4th without anyone getting hurt? And can the Orioles break the Grapefruit League record for ties?

Thanks to everyone who watched our episode preview on Periscope. Find us on Periscope – birdseyeviewbal. Each week, we’ll broadcast an episode preview as well as the worst ideas that didn’t make the show.

We start, as always, with the Drink of the Week. Make sure to tell us what you’re up to via Twitter (@birdseyeviewbal), or on Untapped (jakee4025 and magn8606).

This Week on the Twitters


The Sound from Nashville


One of our favorite guests is Matt Taylor, who writes the Roar From 34 blog. Matt was kind enough to join us to discuss a couple of pieces he’s written recently, and make a few bold predictions.

Check out his thoughts on starters’ early struggles and a very “elite club” of homers and strikeouts, which lead our discussion on this segment.

Also check the blog, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary (!), and will be revisiting the 1966 season in its Flashback Friday features.

Lastly, Matt is an incredibly nice dude, and you can follow him on Twitter @roarfrom34.


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.
