Podcast Episode 7: As Joe Angel would say, time to wave Manny Machado ‘bye bye’

Welcome to Episode 7 of the new Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz.

After the Charm City Bird Watch crew goes over the top #7’s in Ravens & Orioles history (2:30), the guys dissect the latest trade rumors surrounding Manny Machado (12:15). There’s reportedly been some hesitation within Orioles’ ownership to trade Machado to a division rival like the Yankees, as well as letting him go before next week’s All-Star game in Washington, D.C. You’ll find out why the O’s should change their way of thinking when it comes to these scenarios.

With Ravens training camp kicking off next week, the next part of Episode 7 features a full breakdown of the Baltimore’s offense (25:16). Jake, Ian, and Nolan break down each position on the offensive side of the football, and end the segment by picking one player for Ravens offensive MVP.

The guys wrap up the show with their thoughts on the recent news surrounding Maryland basketball (47:07). Last week Maryland turned over documents to the FBI that included details on the recruitment process of Diamond Stone and Silvio De Sousa. Sources have reported that Stone was allegedly payed over $14,000 to come to Maryland while De Sousa was lured away from the Terps after being compensated by Adidas.

Podcast Episode 6: July 2018 – Most crucial month in Orioles history?

Welcome to Episode 6 of the new Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz.

July 2018 could possibly be the most crucial month in the history of the Baltimore Orioles franchise. This year’s team owns the worst record in baseball, people aren’t going to games (except for the giveaways), and several contracts to key people in the organization – both on and off the field – expire after the 2018 season. With an ownership team who’s reputation has been extremely tainted in the past due to several poor, mind-boggling decisions, the future of the Orioles looks dim once again.

With the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline now less than a month away, the Charm City Bird Watch team dissects the latest Orioles on-field action & injuries, and takes a peak into the Manny Machado rumor mill.

Also on the show, Jake, Nolan and Ian reflect on the best players to wear #6 in Orioles & Ravens history, and end the show with Don’t Be A Jerk.
