Episode 48

Jake English of Birds Eye View stops by to preview the Baltimore Orioles are part of the 2017 AL East preview series. He discusses the continual lack of strength/depth in the rotation, Chris Tillman’s injury, the slugging offense, and some fancy roster maneuvering by Dan Duquette. Greg and Josh also discuss the recent returns to “action” for Josh Donaldson and Devon Travis, Kendrys Morales’ continued spring success, Canada’s abysmal showing in the World Baseball classic, Jose Bautista and Marcus Stroman’s STRONG showings, and some approach changes for Kevin Pillar and Justin Smoak. They also give Do-Overs to the Blue Jays social media team and Peter Gammons.

Here’s the massive home run from Shohei Otani that Josh mentions on the podcast.
