What's even better than having two Camden Chat writers on a single podcast? Having three Camden Chat writers on a single podcast! Andrew and I are joined by Stacey to revisit some of our laughably poor preseason predictions.
But first, we had to hear more about Stacey's interview with the Iron Man himself, and she was happy to confess a secret that I would have happily kept for her. After we all get the idolatry out of our system, we move on to laugh at some of our bad preseason picks. Then, it's time to take stock of the first half of the season and what's in store in the second half.
Turns out it's going to have a lot to do with the starting pitching. I feel like this is a topic we've discussed before. Some people out there are actually counting on Chris Tillman and Miguel Gonzalez. That's the depth of insanity we've reached in Birdland. There's no need to apologize for it. Will the Orioles bolster the rotation or any other part of the team with some kind of trade acquisition? Who knows! But we try to guess a little bit.
Along the way are assorted hijinks and levity, ranging from who had what Cal Ripken poster on their wall to someone's inexplicable fascination with Todd Frohwirth and Kevin Gregg likened via analogy to a famous painting - you'll never guess which one.
All this and more in this week's episode, which has a run time of 59 minutes. An embedded player is below the jump for your listening convenience.

Since we are recording this one late in the week, and Andrew really, really wants to watch Breaking Bad on Sunday, we probably won't be back with another episode until July 23. Unless, you know, the Orioles do something crazy and there needs to be an immediate emergency podcast. We'll be there in that scenario. Otherwise, sit tight for a week and a half or so! We'll be back again. Feedback is always appreciated in the meantime.
