So far, this week is turning out like a mirror image of the 2014 postseason. Hopefully the Birds can turn the tide and pick up at least two (preferably three) games against Detroit this weekend, to cap off what would have been quite a successful homestand before heading off on the dreaded west coast trip.
Let’s see what everybody is saying about our O’s.
The Orioles, in doing what they did at the trade deadline, laid bare not only their intentions to keep trying to contend in 2017, but to try again in 2018 as well. Camden Depot’s head honcho Jon Shephard goes through the positions in a sort of state-of-the-Birds post.
Want more on both the deadline and what comes next? BSL’s Rob Shields has you covered.
On Monday, Jake was kind enough to let me sit in for Scott (who was with his wife as she gave birth to their third child – congrats, Magnesses!). We talked about the moves the O’s did – and didn’t make – played some fantasy boss, and of course blew the save. Give a listen, would ya?
Joey’s defense has been much improved this season, and the Baltimore Sun’s Jon Meoli has the advanced stats to back it up.
Congrats to Nick the Stick!
