Leading Off

Two weeks separate us from Opening Day. We can see light at the end of the tunnel. Only time will tell if it is an oncoming train.

Remember to listen to Bird’s Eye View on Google Play Music!

Join us for The Drink of the Week and let us know what you’re up to via Twitter (@birdseyeviewbal), or on Untapped (jakee4025 and magn8606).


The Medical Wing

Remember: It’s OK if you giggle.

This week, the Medical Wing is occupied by:

  • Chris Tillman – shoulder
  • Anthony Santander – elbow
  • Wade Miley – flu


This Week on the Twitters


The Curious Case of Brady Anderson, with Andrew Stetka


Ken Rosenthal wrote an extensive piece on Fox Sports, describing Brady Anderson’s role within the Orioles organization. It’s a unique one to be sure, but it raised a number of questions. To answer these questions, we turned to Andrew Stetka. With Andrew’s help, we work our way through Anderson’s relationship with ownership, management, and the players. Is Brady a help or a hindrance to the organization, given the… awkwardness… of the situation.

Whether you believe that Anderson occasionally oversteps his bounds, or whether you think Ken Rosenthal is a shill with an ax to grind against the Angelos family, you have to admit: this was a nice way to stir the pot during Spring Training.

Follow Andrew Stetka on Twitter: @AStetka. Also look for the good words he writes on Eutaw Street Report every Thursday, and on masnsports.com, where he serves as a guest blogger on Mondays.




Why Are You Even Here?


If someone asked you to explain why you are an Orioles fan, if you had to give the 30-second elevator speech – what would it look like? A new baseball fan from Croatia asked all 30 MLB teams just this question, and most answers were pretty vanilla. We liked the Orioles response.

There was more to it, but their response included “fun, family, tradition, community, partnership, excellence, and magic.”

Whatever your answer, that’ a pretty good start. We try to tackle the questions ourselves, and ask BEV listeners to chime in on social media to answer the question, as well.


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.
