The Birds have had their best week-plus of the season lately, going 9-2 over their last 11 games. The returns of both Matt Wieters and Nolan Reimold to the team has helped, as the team that couldn’t hit at all just a few series ago is now pounding the ball up and down the lineup. Could this be the start of something?

Here’s hopin’. Let’s hit the links for now.

Wieters Sounds Like a Winner

In yesterday’s Section 336 Daily, Matt goes into the awesomeness that has been Matt Wieters, focusing on his leadership on the field and in the clubhouse. (Listening time: 3:36)

Birds Eye View Episode 126: Red, Red Whine

On last week’s show, Jake and Scott were talking about selling. How quickly things can change, huh? However, they don’t want to get all feel-good yet, because the reverse jinx seemed to work so well. Let’s talk about some problems that the hot bats have masked a bit, shall we? (Listening time: 56 min)

Possibilities with Parmelee

Chris Parmelee can opt out of his Orioles contract any time now, so the team needs to make a decision soon. They brought him to Baltimore last night, but have yet to make a move. What could they do? Roch Kubatko explores the possibilities. Jimmy Paredes, David Lough, and Travis Snider should all be looking over their shoulders.

What are the Orioles Doing with Kevin Gausman?

The question that never seems to be answered is popping up yet again, with Gausman set to make another rehab start at Frederick, but…he’s only scheduled to pitch two innings? What sense does that make? Gausman said that his shoulder felt great after his rehab start at Bowie (where he got touched up a bit, by the way), so why isn’t he being stretched out? Camden Chat’s Tyler Young tries to find some answers, but none are likely coming any time soon.

J.J. Hardy and O’s Clutch Hitting

Here’s a crazy stat – J.J. Hardy has played in just 34 games for the O’s, yet he has SIX “game-winning” RBI (including one last night). The O’s in general have been very clutch lately, as Randy Buchman of the Baltimore Wire explains.
