While we can say it, we would like to point out that the Baltimore Orioles are in first place in the American League East. This team has been playing entertaining baseball – this is a Good Thing.

This has to be crew chief review since Jays lost their challenge. In other words, losing your challenge means nothing

The Orioles used to have an awful pitcher named Jake Arrieta. I wonder if they are related.

This team, man. They make us feel things. Sometimes great things. Sometimes sad things. But things. All the things.
The guys run down a few of the players that have us tied up in emotional knots. Who has you feeling conflicted? Tweet us your picks @birdseyeviewbal and tag it #emOtions.
A Path Forward
It’s still early, but we have seen enough to confirm what we thought before the season started: this is a good, but flawed team. A team that can win tough games, and give away frustrating games.
The AL East is a pig slop of mediocrity, outside the division-leading O’s. With their flaws exposed, what is the path forward for the Orioles?
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.
