Welcome to Episode 66 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with Jake McDonnellNolan McGraw, and Ian Schultz.

The Charm City Bird Watch Podcast is brought to you by the Big Heads Media Podcast Network. Big Heads brings you several different podcasts (including Wasting Time) ranging from sports, games, pop culture, comedy, and much more.

With the NFL roster deadline coming up on Saturday at 4 pm, the guys start the show by revealing their official projections for the Ravens 53-man roster (4:11 SoundCloud, 4:41 other). Do the fellas share the same sentiments on most of the roster battles and bubble players, or are there some differing opinions?

Up next, Baltimore Orioles Radio Network Broadcaster Kevin Brown calls in for an exclusive interview with Jake (46:35 SoundCloud, 47:05 other). We felt that an appropriate way to truly cap off our Orioles minor league tour was to have Brown on the program. Jake asked Kevin a number of questions, ranging from his early broadcasting days at Syracuse, to a reflection of his first year calling O’s games, and his favorite food dishes around Charm City. Don’t worry, there’s some baseball talk sprinkled in here too.

After Kevin’s interview, Nolan and Ian jump back in with Jake to recap Mike Elias’s announcements regarding the departure of several scouts and front office staff from the Orioles (1:14:00 SoundCloud, 1:14:30 other). What do these firings mean for the franchise and do they have any correlation to the rulings of the infamous MASN dispute?

As always, the Charm City Bird Watch gang reveal their players and stinkers of the week after the Orioles finished their latest home-stand with a 4-3 record against the Royals and Rays (1:22:19 SoundCloud, 1:22:49 other).

As always, we end the program with the weekly numbers segment (1:30:28 SoundCloud, 1:30:58 other) where Jake quizzes Nolan and Ian to see if they can guess the names of the best Baltimore sports athletes who wore #66.
