Should the Orioles cut their losses with Ubaldo Jimenez? Or is it worth it to move him to the bullpen while they try Alec Asher in the starting rotation? On the 400th episode of Baltimore Sports Today, Jab and Zach debate Ubaldo’s future and talk about why it’s such a pleasure to watch Adam Jones play every night.
The Orioles had a 7-1 lead in Detroit and were unable to hold on to it. Without Zach Britton, the Orioles bullpen just doesn’t seem the same. How has the closer’s absence affected the rest of the staff? Jab and Zach discuss their concerns for the O’s pens and talk about possible solutions.
A rainy night in D.C. cancelled last night’s Orioles-Nationals game. Jab shares his conspiracy theory about why the Nats decided to postpone the contest. The guys discuss Dylan Bundy’s amazing season and preview the upcoming series against the Royals in Kansas City.
After a brutal night for the Capitals and Orioles, Jab and Zach discuss two tough losses. They chat about how the Caps will respond to another disappointing finish and a let down in game 7. Are big changes looming? The guys also discuss the Nationals walk off victory over the Orioles on Matt Wieters two run single.
Matt Wieters returned to Baltimore and the Orioles took game one of the MASN Cup against the Washington Nationals. Jab and Zach talk about Wieters warm welcome and discuss the Birds bats bombing the Nats in the first inning. The guys also chat about the Capitals dominant victory in Pittsburgh to force a game seven against the Penguins.
The ump show was in full effect last night at Fenway Park. Kevin Gausman’s 77 MPH curveball that hit Xander Bogaerts was enough to get him ejected in the second inning of last night’s game. Chris Sale’s fastball that was thrown behind Manny Machado the night before only earned him a warning. Then later in the game, Adam Jones was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Jab and Zach break down the Orioles taking the high road and continuing to get screwed in this confrontation with the Red Sox.
“F—ing bulls—,” Manny Machado told reporters after Chris Sale threw at him in the first pitch of his first at bat last night in Fenway Park. Jab and Zach talk about the seemingly inevitable Orioles-Red Sox brawl, about the benches being warned after Sale’s pitch and Machado’s ability to mash homers after guys throw at him.
