Remember Last June?

A year ago, the Baltimore Orioles were rolling. They finished June with 19 wins and led the league in nearly every offensive category. By the end of the month, the Birds had a five game lead in the AL East. They did all of this with some of the worst starting pitching in baseball. Can they reel off another month like that with this year’s club? Jab and Zach discuss.

Trending Down

After splitting a four game series with the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles sit in third place in the AL East with a 29-26 record. They had a challenging May, their bullpen has been taxed, and the starting pitching staff ranks in the lower third of the league in ERA. Jab and Zach examine where the O’s stand, why they are very much in the race despite their set backs and talk about how they can stick around through the rest of the 2017 season.

Time To Say Good Bye To Ubaldo?

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.

We Have Bullpen Concerns

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.
