Thursday’s O’s Links: Who Will Seize Power in the Warehouse?

Guys, the Orioles won a game! A baseball game! Not like, one Oriole beat another Oriole in ping pong in the clubhouse! They actually played another major-league team and had more runs after nine innings. On top of that, Chris Davis has now homered two nights in a row! Mark Trumbo smoked a rocket single to score the two game-winning runs!

One more win to 10. Dare to dream, Birdland.

To the links.

Orioles Game of Thrones and the Way Forward

Orioles Hangout’s Tony Pente has a new 11-page piece on the past, current, and future state of the Orioles. No offense to the beat writers – who I enjoy and appreciate – but this is better than anything you’ll get from them when it comes to the real behind-the-scenes happenings in The Warehouse. When you have an hour or so, I implore EVERY O’s fan to give this piece an attentive read. I’m going to go through it for the second time today.

Bundy Says He’s Healthy, So What’s Going on With His Command?

Buck says Bundy is healthy. Dylan says he feels fine. So what the heck is up?

A Bad Day at Work

I much prefer Jeff Sullivan when he’s writing about how good – not how historically awful – Dylan Bundy is. Still, you know my rule about linking any time Jeff writes about the Birds. Hold your nose and dive in.

Going Yard Episode 6: Bill Swaggerty, A Talk with a World Series Champion

We’ve seemingly moved on from the Golden Years of not only Buck’s Birds, but from O’s Podcasts. A few years ago, there were a half-dozen or more shows putting out great content on a near-weekly basis. These days, that number has unfortunately dwindled to a handful, so I’m always looking for new ones to pop up and replace the dearly departed members of the O’s Podcast-o-Sphere (RIP Orioles Spastics & Baltimorons). The Going Yard show is only on episode 6. This was the first one I listened to, and I enjoyed it. Though it seems that they’ll have a lot of general MLB talk, they’re O’s fans, so I’ll give them a few episodes – embrace the homerism, fellas! Anyway, give Dan & Tyler a listen.
