The Payoff Pitch
In this week’s episode, Matt Taylor (@Roarfrom34) of Roar from 34 joins me to talk all things Orioles. This week’s episode of The Payoff Pitch Prospect Report will be out on Friday due to the holiday. Happy Fourth, Birdland!
On this week’s episode of The Payoff Pitch, ESR’s Matt Pyne joined me once again. We talked about Manny Machado’s return to Baltimore, the signings of Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson (see Matt’s piece on slot value here) as well as their immediate futures in the organization, plus whether or not the Birds can punt 2020 like they have 2019. Thanks for listening, and stay tuned for The Payoff Pitch Prospect Report coming Thursday!
In this week’s Payoff Pitch Prospect Report, Paul fills O’s fans in on how the Delmarva Shorebirds did in the South Atlantic League All-Star Game, plus updates us on some soutpaws pitching well for the Bowie Baysox. Thanks for watching, and be sure to check out this week’s full episode of The Payoff Pitch here!
The Orioles are offensive to the senses, yet still boast a punchless offense. On this week’s episode, Paul is joined by Eutaw Street Report Senior Editor Derek Arnold. The guys talk about the disappearing Orioles offense, Chance Sisco’s future in Baltimore, and the joys of watching awful pitching year in and year out (hi Dan Straily). Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out The Payoff Pitch Prospect Report, coming later today!
On this week’s show, I’m joined by fellow Eutaw Street Report writer Dillon Atkinson. We talk about the recent turnaround from O’s pitchers, especially Dylan Bundy, and the way John Means and Gabriel Ynoa are stabilizing the rotation. On offense, we discuss Richie Martin’s sudden surge, Dwight Smith Jr.’s injury, Anthony Santander’s call-up, and more. Be sure to read Dillon’s article on Dylan Bundy here.
For the second time this season, Adam McInturff (@2080Adam) of 2080 Baseball has been kind enough to join us for the show. He goes over the Birds’ top several picks in the 2019 draft, including (of course) Adley Rutschman, but also Kyle Stowers, Zach Watson, and more! Listen here: Stay tuned for another edition of The Payoff Pitch tomorrow, where we’ll be premiering our new video segment, the Payoff Pitch Prospect Report!
Only five days until the 2019 MLB draft! Who will the Orioles pick? Most assume it will be Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman, but Texas high schooler Bobby Witt Jr. and Cal first baseman Andrew Vaughn could still be in the mix. Joining me today to talk about the draft, and give great scouting reports on all three players, is Luke Jackson from Press Box. Listen here: Thanks for listening/watching!
This week, I’m joined by Baltimore sports talk icon Stan “The Fan” Charles of Press Box and PressBoxOnline.com. How much longer can the Orioles keep running David Hess & Dan Straily out there to get beat around? Where are the potential future relievers on this team? What’s up with the lack of fundamentals? Stan and I disagree about Trey Mancini’s future in Baltimore, and plenty of more great O’s talk! Thanks for listening to the Payoff Pitch c/o D&L Professional Window Tinting.
On this week’s show, I’m joined by Eric Arditti (@editti22) of Barstool Baseball. We talk about Ken Rosenthal’s doom & gloom article, watching a bad baseball team, prospects like Grayson Rodriguez, Blaine Knight, Ryan Mountcastle, and others, what Mike Elias will do in the draft, and plenty more. Thanks for listening/watching!
On this week’s episode of The Payoff Pitch…should fans freak out about rumors the Orioles might be moving to Vegas? Let’s get into that ridiculous brouhaha. After that, we’re joined by Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun to talk about the Birds so far, his niche with advanced analytics on the O’s beat, John Means, some prospects, and more. Thanks for listening!
The Orioles have been, as expected, a bit tough to watch in 2019. So this week, we head down on the farm with Adam McInturff, Assistant Director of Pro Scouting for 2080Baseball.com. Adam updates us on some pitchers in the Birds’ system, like DL Hall, Zac Lowther, Keegan Akin, and more. We also talk about some bats like Ryan Mountcastle and Austin Hays. Earlier in the show, I answer some questions from listeners. Check out the show below. Thanks for listening!
Today on the show, I go over some of the Birds’ recent roster moves, including designating Mike Wright for assignment and optioning Cedric Mullins to AAA. I also climb on my soapbox a bit about some silly Chris Davis speculation. Fellow ESR blogger Dillon Atkinson joins me to talk about his recent pieces on John Means and Miguel Castro. Listen here: Until next week…
In this week’s episode of The Payoff Pitch, Glenn Clark of PressBox and GlennClarkRadio.com was kind enough to join me for the show. We talk about Chris Davis making history (then maybe breaking out of it?), some baby Birds pitching well down on the farm, Trey Mancini’s future, the excitement of having the number one overall pick, trusting the process, and plenty more! This was a fun show, so we really hope you tune in and let us know what you think. Tweet your comments to me @PaulValleIII or to […]
In this week’s episode of The Payoff Pitch, I go over the laundry list of roster moves the Orioles have already made here over just a week of the season. In the second segment, I’m joined by ESR’s own Matt Pyne (he also hosts the Baseball is Boring podcast) to talk about this article he wrote earlier this week. Thanks for listening!
For the home opener edition of The Payoff Pitch, I was fortunate enough to be joined in studio by Jeremy Conn of 105.7 the Fan here in Baltimore. “Jerry Love” and I talked about the Orioles’ hot start, pulling a guy pitching a no-hitter, the Birds’ use of an “opener,” trusting the process, and plenty more. Listen here! Thanks for listening/watching!
On Sunday, I was fortunate enough to join Paul Valle, host of the D&L Tinting Payoff Pitch, for the third installment of Birdland Radio. Birdland Radio, for those not familiar, is the brainchild of Josh Sroka of Section 336. It’s 12+ hours of Orioles podcasts on or around the start of the season. Like I said, this is the third time he’s done it, and the third time ESR has participated. Listen to our hour here: Yesterday, Paul and I got into a bunch of O’s topics, including: The ways […]
In this episode of The Payoff Pitch, Paul goes over the list of surprises on the Baltimore Orioles’ 25-man roster to start the 2019 season. He is joined by Scott Magness of Bird’s Eye View to talk about things to watch for this season and to get schooled on WAR. Video version coming tomorrow. Thanks for listening!
In the second episode of The Payoff Pitch presented by D&L Professional Window Tinting, I go over some of the recent roster moves, including the somewhat surprising demotion of Austin Hays to minor-league camp. I’ll also try to figure out what’s going on with the Birds’ rotation, and I’m joined by Ken Weinman of 105.7 The Fan to get his thoughts. Later in the show, I debut a new segment: Nerd Stat of the Week. Thanks for listening!
In this inaugural episode of The Payoff Pitch (new version), I catch everyone up on Spring Training to this point. Later in the show, fellow ESR writer Dillon Atkinson joins me to talk about roster decisions, Chris Davis’ status, and plenty more. Thanks for listening!
