Ryan was sick all last week, but he and Paul are back to go over the happenings of the first couple weeks of the season.
They discuss Ryan Mountcastle‘s record-tying nine-RBI night, Austin Hays‘ hot start, and Adley Rutschman‘s brilliance. It hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows, though, as the pitching staff has gotten off to a rough start and a few key hitters have contributed little.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an episode of this podcast without a bit of complaining about Brandon Hyde‘s managerial decisions. The O’s have some roster decisions to make now that the 15-day window for optioned pitchers to remain in AAA closes on Friday.
We also tease Orioles Jeopardy!, which will take place in the off-season.
