Welcome to Episode 46 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz

Almost the full first hour of this week’s podcast dives into the latest Orioles baseball headlines (8:51). The guys react to Alex Cobb and Nate Karns being moved to the 10-day injured list, and voice some concerns facing this thin pitching staff. The Orioles segment gets more detailed as Jake, Nolan, and Ian pick both a player and stinker of the week (28:03).

Up next, Jake welcomes in this week’s guest, KLST-TV (San Angelo, Texas) Sports Director/Anchor, Matt Loch (52:12). Loch, a college classmate of Jake’s and a 2018 graduate of Bloomsburg University, moved halfway across the country just a few months after finishing school. Loch tells us about what it’s like covering sports in a very small market and what life in Texas is like. With Loch being a Philadelphia sports fan, Jake gets his takes on Bryce Harper, the Browns landing Odell Beckham Jr, and the chances the Ravens have at winning the AFC North in 2019.

After Loch’s interview with Jake wraps up, Nolan and Ian jump back in for a Baltimore Sports whip-around. The guys discuss the Ravens signing Seth Roberts (1:12:04), Jalen Smith announcing his return to Maryland for his sophomore season (1:17:48), and how the Washington Capitals fare one night before they face the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 1 of the first round of the NHL playoffs (1:22:10).

In the next part of the show, the Don’t Be A Jerk segment returns (1:24:28), where Jake calls out Antonio Brown for attacking JuJu Smith-Schuster on Twitter.

As always, the show concludes with our weekly numbers segment, where we share our favorite plays or memories about the best Baltimore Sports athletes who wore the number 46 (1:33:26).
