In the first episode of the AL East season preview series, Jake English of Bird’s Eye View stops by to talk about the Orioles’ offseason, their choices to stay the course, Adam Jones and his defensive future, and the best and worst case scenarios for last year’s division basement dweller. Greg, Josh, and Nick also discuss the intriguing notes from the early spring games including Curtis Granderson’s power, Anthony Alford’s strong showing, and Roberto Osuna’s velocity. They also discuss the signing of Seung-hwan Oh, the release of Ezequiel Carrera, Marcus Stroman’s shoulder inflammation, and Sportsnet’s new pre-game crew. Finally, they answer listener questions and hand out 2017’s first Cliché of the Week.
And as promised on the show, here once again is Greg’s piece on Zeke’s hidden problem.
