After Manny Machado’s controversial slide on Friday night that injured Dustin Pedroia, the Red Sox retaliated on Sunday, and threw near the head of the Orioles’ third baseman. Was Machado’s late slide intentional? Nolan McGraw and Jake McDonnell discuss.

Also on this episode, Nolan and Jake talk about the Orioles’ 12-5 start in the first three weeks of the season. Will Kevin Gausman turn it around? What can we take away from the rotation’s recent success? How about Trey Mancini’s hot start?

At the end of the episode, the guys take a quick look at the Ravens’ 2017 regular season schedule, which was released last Thursday. What record do Nolan and Jake think the Ravens will finish at in 2017? Also, the NFL Draft begins this Thursday from Philadelphia. What positions do the guys think the Ravens should target early?
