The Payoff Pitch

The Payoff Pitch: Prospect Talk with Adam McInturff

Zac Lowther pitching.
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!

The Payoff Pitch – Juice & Juiced Balls

Miguel Castro pitches.
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…

The Payoff Pitch – Davis Gets a Hit w/Glenn Clark

Chris Davis holds his bat.
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 […]

The Payoff Pitch on Birdland Radio

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 […]

The Payoff Pitch Episode 2 w/Ken Weinman

David Hess pitches.
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!
