Leading Off

The Orioles were a regular MASH unit this week, and had a poor showing against the Damn Yankees. Of course things are all terrible, right? Right? Actually……… as it turns out, the starting pitching did a passable impression of a major league rotation, and nobody really talked about it. The season moves pretty fast – if you don’t stop and look around, you might just miss it.

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).

  • Adam Jones
  • Hyun Soo Kim

  • Hunter Harvey

Chris Davis’ Day Off


The O’s were hit by the stomach bug this week. Suuuuuuuuuuuure they were. That’s the easy answer, if you want to accept that excuse. We have a more… colorful opinion of what actually took place.

The BEV Players are proud to present their production of Chris Davis’ Day Off.

Fantasy Boss

Fantasy Boss

Again, Jake and Scott pick the top 1 and 2 in their category this week, but much like Highlander (seriously, this show is all about 80s movie references this week), there can be only one.

Jake took the title this week, with his pick Yovani Gallardo hitting on 69.5 (nice point five) percent of first pitch strikes, against Vance Worley’s 60%. That puts the contest at 6-5 in Jake’s favor.

This week, Scott challenged Jake to an over/under for Chris Davis strikeouts, and set the line at 10.5. Suspicious he was being baited, Jake took the over, and Scott will take the under.

Don’t forget about our 2016 Fantasy Boss Wild Cards!

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.
