The Orioles have hit 30 home runs in 18 games, leading every other MLB team and every Orioles team in history through the same number of games. Mark looks at the six O's batters who've contributed the most to the dinger tally to see who's likely to keep it up and who might not be. Also in this episode, some guarded excitement about Albert Suárez an…

After the Orioles lost the first two games to the Brewers, the haven't-been-swept (in the regular season) streak was in danger, and early on Sunday it was in danger too even with Corbin Burnes on the mound. Mark takes a look at the good and bad from the Milwaukee series, surveys a couple of real problem areas for the O's so far, and looks ahead to …

Mark is still plenty ready to be hyped about Jackson Holliday being on the Orioles, but the fact is through his first two games the most exciting development has proven to be the return of the homer hose. In this episode, Mark is singing the praises of Colton "the Milkman" Cowser - who seems to have been at the front of bringing back the water cele…

Mark is fired up about the Orioles reportedly having Jackson Holliday join the team in Boston tomorrow and he's not afraid to tell the world about it. In this episode, some eating crow over accusing Mike Elias of service time games, assumptions about where Holliday fits into the playing time mix, and some consideration of his likely competition for…

The last week has been brutal for the Orioles offense, especially (but not only) for Austin Hays and Ramón Urías. Mark runs through some of the rough numbers for those guys and a few others before recognizing that there won't be any knee-jerk reactions from the front office - nor should there be. Hopefully the patience pays off. Learn more about yo…

A prospect-heavy Norfolk lineup is blasting through Triple-A every night, which provides a lot of excitement for Orioles fans who want to follow things down on the farm. With the remaining full-season minor league affiliates starting up, Mark runs through where to find each of the top prospects in the system and what to hope for their progress as t…

The Orioles played two great games and one underwhelming one in their opening series against the Angels. Mark is in a good mood about the team because he attended the great games and got to bask in the immaculate Camden Yards vibes, and didn't watch the loss. This episode discusses all that's gone great over the first few days, and some things that…

Between Corbin Burnes dazzling in his Orioles debut, Anthony Santander and Cedric Mullins homering, and David Rubenstein's new ownership group spreading good cheer - and free beer - all across the Oriole Park at Camden Yards environs, Opening Day 2024 could hardly have gone any better. Mark came away from it all with one dangerous thought: Maybe Or…

Are you, like Mark, a sucker who spent all offseason and spring training assuming that Jackson Holliday would make the Orioles out of camp and that we could all be excited about this? Tough luck, we've got Tyler Nevin on the roster instead! Before a monologue about the disappointment over the Holliday decision, Mark reflects on the checkered Oriole…

Entering the final week of spring training, the Orioles are going to have to think long and hard about who gets the last couple of spots on the bench and in the bullpen. Mark looks through the outfield options as well as the relief ones, with the Orioles needing to choose wisely because they don't want to lose a useful player on waivers for nothing…

Everything from spring training gets erased when it's over, so of course it doesn't matter, but also: The Orioles are 14-2-1 in games so far, and they're getting great performances from exciting young players like Jackson Holliday and Coby Mayo. Mark is here for that excitement, and also the excitement that Corbin Burnes is officially the Orioles O…

Last year, the Orioles used a total of 50 players and nearly all of them were part of spring training. The 62 players in Orioles camp this year will be who determines success or failure for most of this season. Mark rolls through the whole list both to give the grinders their due and to try to see who might be a diamond in the rough - and to remind…

The Orioles have started their exhibition league schedule with a couple of wins, featuring one Colton Cowser walkoff homer and a Cole Irvin velocity bump. Mark looks at the early games and some improving injury news before looking at the state of MASN. The one game MASN showed over the weekend had some real video quality problems and Mark wonders i…

We were all taking it for granted that the Orioles would have a strong top 2 in their rotation between newly-acquired Corbin Burnes and returning 2022 ace Kyle Bradish. As camp opened, Mike Elias revealed a UCL sprain for Bradish that looks like it will delay him for at least six weeks. The same presser, we learned that John Means is a month behind…

The start to the follow-up act to last year's 101-win Orioles season begins today with pitchers and catchers reporting to Sarasota to begin spring training. Mark's got the one big question on his mind: Will Jackson Holliday make the team? Also in this episode, thoughts on how almost the whole roster is locked in before camp even opened, hopes for n…

The path to success for the 2024 Orioles is built on a variety of assumptions, a few of which are that players who were hurt in different ways over the course of last season will be able to come back looking more like the best versions of themselves. Mark puts Cedric Mullins, John Means, and Dillon Tate in this category and talks through his hopes …

An already-amazing week for Orioles fans with the news of the ownership change was taken to a whole new level on Thursday night as the team traded for 2021 NL Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes. Mark talks through his stunned disbelief to try to break down what Burnes brings to the Orioles and what the O's gave up in making the deal. There's risk, as th…

John Angelos haters can rejoice now that reports have hit mainstream media that the Angelos family has agreed to sell its stake of the Orioles to a group led by Baltimore-born billionaire David Rubenstein. This news reached the "Mark's dad called to talk about it" level, and it is big news - hopefully good news for O's fans. Mark discusses what's b…

Not long ago, the late offseason ritual of top prospect lists getting released was one of the most exciting days of the year for Orioles fans. Mark is glad that the Orioles are better so the spring and summer months are fun too, but with six O's prospects still on top 100 lists, there's still a lot to be excited about there. In this episode, we loo…

In order for an Orioles pitching acquisition to make sense, the cost of doing nothing has to be greater than the cost of getting a better pitcher. Mark remembers his public policy undergraduate days in tackling a no-action analysis for the O's rotation, a step that national media members complaining about the O's lack of a trade seem to have skippe…

Still waiting for the Orioles to do something to improve the starting rotation? Mark is too, but after running through what little is in the rumor mill this week, it's on to discuss the start of the international amateur signing period. If you don't know what that is, there's a quick explainer of what's happening and what it means, with a breakdown…

The Orioles did not bring any Christmas gifts to Birdland fans over the Christmas break, so we're all still left wondering when the big starting pitching move will happen, or if it will. In the meantime, it's the season for Hall of Fame ballots to be revealed, and Mark has noticed something fun: When articles are written speculating on which curren…

The 11th hour reversal of the previous tentative lease agreement was resolved within the span of a week after all. Mark runs through where things stand there and then gets back into the state of the Orioles roster, surveying some of the potentially available starting pitchers and trying to figure out who's a good fit for the O's. Maybe Mike Elias h…

It's been a wild several days for Orioles fans that ultimately resulted in nothing changing from the status quo. Mark runs through the saga of the last few days, from a reported possible future sale of the team to a reported tentative lease agreement, on through to the lease being put back on hold and John Angelos telling the governor he's not plan…

Craig Kimbrel to the Orioles! It's weird just to say that, but it's true. Baseball's eighth place guy on the all-time saves list, who has a strong chance of being in the top five by the end of 2024, is now an Oriole. Mark is cautiously optimistic about this signing over the course of this episode, because while Kimbrel isn't the elite reliever he w…

As baseball's winter meetings begin, Mark is convincing himself of why the Orioles absolutely must do something substantial even though he knows better. Discussion in this episode centers around several relievers coming over from Japan, as well as recent Rays pitcher Robert Stephenson. Plus, thoughts on the Jackson Chourio extension with the Brewer…

The first big free agent signing across MLB happened on Sunday as the Phillies re-inked Aaron Nola. That could be the move that sets the top of the market and informs everything below that. Will the Orioles sign someone who is an interesting signing? Mark talks about why he thinks getting a better starter is important, then goes through some of the…

By the end of this week, the Orioles will have set their 40-man roster with players protected from next month's Rule 5 draft, and decided whether or not to tender 2024 contracts to each of their arbitration-eligible players. Mark looks at the pool of Rule 5 eligibles and the bubble players on the potential non-tender list. In the mailbag, listeners…

The Orioles bullpen did not end up looking a lot like the one we might have all imagined before the 2023 season, with few innings pitched by expected contributors Dillon Tate and Mychal Givens, and an early rough patch for Cionel Pérez necessitating some shuffling through the year. The All-Star duo of Félix Bautista and Yennier Cano were a big part…

A lot went wrong with the Orioles rotation over the course of the 2023 season, with three of the six pitchers who made the most starts getting demoted to the minors during the season and two others spending significant time with poor ERAs. Mark looks back at how things went for each of the starters relative to expectations and what the rotation sho…

The Orioles had a bunch of infield prospects who seemed like they might be knocking on the door in 2023, but by season's end only Jordan Westburg had earned regular playing time. Mark looks back with surprise at how little the O's infield changed through the year, assessing who did what at each position and who might not be brought back for next ye…
  continue reading
 
The 101-61 Orioles record this season makes this the best regular season O's team in the Camden Yards era and every part of the team contributed. Mark reviews the performance of the outfielders this season, focusing on the five guys who played the most and how they filled their roles, plus the outlook for each of these guys - Austin Hays, Cedric Mu…

The 2023 season is over and Mark recorded this episode minutes after the end and is feeling really sad about it. This Orioles team played its way to a great place and wasn't able to make the most of that, or much of anything with it, in the postseason. That's a bummer. Mark looks back on what went wrong over the three days along with why we'll all …

The two ALDS games the Orioles have played at home have been absolutely crushing to everyone who's gotten their hopes up for the team. Even Mark, who was already feeling pessimistic as usual, is not immune to drafting on the hype vibe and is now feeling glum that was obliterated. In this episode, some thoughts on what went wrong in Game 2, and why …

If you were to be told ahead of time that the Orioles would only give up three runs to the Rangers, you'd probably feel good about their chances of winning Game 1. They lost anyway. Mark, feeling extra hopeless after getting stuck in Billy Joel gridlock leaving the loss, is thinking about what has the potential to go better but not full of hope tha…

After a week of working to stay sharp, the Orioles begin their postseason with the ALDS against the Rangers tomorrow. Mark previews the series with the AL West runner-up with a focus on how the two teams fit into a recent postseason trend: It's better to score first and it's better to hit more homers than the other team. Based on the regular season…

At least until Saturday, there's nothing that Orioles fans need to worry about, and that feels pretty good. Mark offers some thoughts on the wild card games that were played on Tuesday, with the Rays falling on their faces and the Twins finally getting a monkey off their back. Also in this episode, a look at the kind of elite hitters the O's offens…

Unlike so many recent seasons, the end of the regular season doesn't mean the Orioles are done for the year. They get the week off to rest thanks to their 101 wins. Their last regular season game offered enough to worry about if you want to be a worrier, but Mark is going to try really hard not to worry and instead focus on all the exciting possibi…

What does it sound like when a normally pessimistic Orioles podcaster records an episode right after his favorite baseball team wins its 100th game and clinches a division title and first season bye? It sounds like this. Mark goes from top to bottom to try to say something nice about every player who has appeared for the 2023 O's. Learn more about …

What can be said about a legend like Brooks Robinson about whom everything has already been said? Mark shares his own brief encounter with Brooks, the nicest guy there ever was. The Orioles, fittingly, won a 1-0 game with a Gunner Henderson home run in the game after we found out about Brooks. The win lowered the AL East magic number to 2, setting …

After Friday's walkoff loss, it seemed like the Orioles might be on the ropes for holding on to their AL East lead, but as they've done so many times this year, they bounced back in a big way. Mark runs through some of the recent developments that have gotten the magic number down to three, with John Means and Kyle Gibson coming through in the clut…

The Orioles bullpen has gotten heavy use lately and that showed in Thursday's loss to the Guardians. Mark looks at some of what's gotten the team to the point it's at with its relievers and what their options are to try to do something about it in the short-term. With a lot of chatter among baseball websites lately about how "lucky" the Orioles hav…

On the way to Tuesday's Orioles win over the Astros, MASN's broadcast asked rhetorically, "Can't you just be normal?" It seems to Mark that they can't, but this is working out for the O's so far. They clinched at least WC1 on Tuesday. In this episode, Mark runs through another game where the O's were simultaneously dominant and nerve-wracking, runs…

The nearly-unthinkable has happened with 13 games still to play. The 2023 Orioles are going to the postseason. It's only a wild card clincher for now, but with a two-game lead plus the tiebreaker over the Rays, they have a pretty good chance to get the bye. Mark is riding a wave of exuberance about all of this, and in this episode talks about some …

The failure by the Orioles to win at least one of the final two games against the Cardinals really hurts in the aftermath of Thursday's loss to the Rays. Mark's feeling pretty bummed about a game that the O's kept close despite generating almost no offense, so the few mistakes and missed opportunities loom quite large. Also bummed: Jack Flaherty's …
  continue reading
 
The Orioles offense did a solid for struggling Cardinals veteran Adam Wainwright in letting him finally get career win #200 but Mark would have much rather seen them do a solid for their own playoff hopes. Fortunately, the Rays also lost. The big positive story from the game is John Means making his return, what was an encouraging outing even if th…

The most recent Orioles game was a rain-soaked loss in Boston full of infield miscues and that was pretty dumb, but Mark is for once trying not to dwell (too much) on one more fluky game against the Red Sox because the O's don't have to worry about fluky Red Sox stuff in the postseason. Other topics in this episode: Why this season feels so much le…

With just more than three weeks of the season left, the Orioles have their biggest division lead of the season at four games. The magic number to clinch the division is 19. It's safe to say that the O's have exceeded just about anybody's wildest hopes for their performance this year. In this episode, Mark looks over the areas of the roster that he …

On Tuesday night, the Orioles won their first game of the season where they trailed heading into the ninth inning. It was a great win but also one that left Mark feeling grumpy, maybe because they kept him up so late, but also because the O's shouldn't need to squeak out wins over the currently bad Angels roster. Mark digs into what makes it so har…

Over their weekend series against the Diamondbacks, the Orioles managed to gain a game on the Rays, even winning with Jack Flaherty having another letdown on Sunday. Mark is excited about the Orioles are staying on a 101 win pace even if Flaherty being here is still a mystery. The weekend also brought 2022 All-Star Jorge López back into the organiz…
