It’s been a rough 10-game stretch for the Orioles, so we got the depressing part of the show out of the way first. Not only did we take a look at all of the records the Yankees set against the Orioles this year (3:20 SoundCloud, 3:50 other), we also got into MLB Insider Jon Heyman‘s recent tweets attacking the Orioles and the rebuilding plan they’ve implemented (21:15 SoundCloud, 21:45 other).

Up next, Jake wraps up our Orioles minor league tour by welcoming in this week’s guest, Norfolk Tides broadcast voice Pete Michaud. Pete talks with Jake about Ryan Mountcastle‘s development, Anthony Santander and John Means‘ rise to the majors, the home run surge across baseball, and the lack of pitching depth in the high levels of the Orioles organization (43:00 SoundCloud, 43:30 other).

After Jake wraps things up with Pete, Nolan and Ian jump back in to talk some Ravens football (59:20 SoundCloud, 59:50 other). Nolan shares some observations from attending last week’s preseason opener, the Who’s Trending segment returns, and we turn our attention to the Ravens second preseason game of 2019, which goes down Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.

As always, we end the program with the weekly numbers segment where Jake quizzes Nolan and Ian to see if they can guess the names of the best Baltimore sports athletes who wore #64 (1:25:00 SoundCloud, 1:25:30 other)
