Leading Off

Your first place Baltimore Orioles had a rough week. The Toronto and Boston series had all the stuff of which nightmares are made: poor pitching… no, mostly poor pitching. At least it’s early… right?

The Drink of the Week has gone from drowning our sorrows to celebrating wins. If you’re “celebrating” along, tell us what you’re up to via Twitter (@birdseyeviewbal), or on Untapped (jakee4025 and magn8606).

This Week on the Twitters


Time to Panic



We tweeted out this weekend that the upcoming Boston series seemed like a turning point for the season – and that this turning point may take place without a suspended Manny Machado.

But is this time for panic? Looking at the marathon that is the baseball season, and removing ourselves from the emotional distress associated with the last two series, are things as bad as they feel?

We take turns making a case for Panic and Calm.

The Orioles added 41 players to the organization in the 2016 draft – an organization that is widely accepted as being, charitably, “thin.” We discuss the Orioles’ approach, the pros and cons of this approach, and take a look at #1 draft pick Cody Sedlock.

We also claim to be experts in the MLB draft. You know, as is our way.


Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss

Scott takes a commanding 3-2 lead, after having looked at IP per start for the starters. Jake went with Kevin Gausman (6.1), and Scott took Chris Tillman (7.1). This week’s category is plain and simple:

Dong de-dong-dong-dong.

Scott picked Jonathan Schoop, Jake picked Mark Trumbo.

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.
