Hey guys, I just stumbled across this fan shirt from twitter (@Section148) that teases Manny a bit. I'm not sure what to think of this shirt but I thought I'd share it. It sounds like the A's fans have something planned for Manny upon his arrival in Oakland.

Leading Off Scott takes a turn for the worse, as the O’s losses start to pile up. His Debbie Downer persona continues as we discuss: Drink of the Week #TheBrianRobertsWatch The Medical Wing The guys introduce a new segment: This Week on Twitter (TWoT). Our first TWoT consists of : Critical listener feedback (hate Tweets) Limericks (bad Irish accents) The return of football season Current events creep in Through the Looking Glass alice-in-wonderland A Look Back… The O’s have gone 15-16 in the last 31 games. The team keeps giving away series. Game 4 of the Yankees series was one of the worst fan experiences Jake has ever had. He treats Scott to a "brief" recount of his evening. A Look Ahead… Despite their best efforts, the Birds are still in the Wild Card race (or ARE THEY?!?!) 13 games remain – all against AL East opponents Still in "no excuse" mode: the Orioles can’t give away at-bats, outs, or games. If they do, they’re toast. Fantasy Boss Jake 6, Scott 4 Elvis on the intro means Scott won again. Michael Morse was more hapless than Adam Jones in terms of o-swing%, – which means that Scott has pulled within 2. With two weeks to go, Scott will have every opportunity to catch up and prove that he is, indeed, The Boss. This week, he’s pulled another "voodoo stat" in WPA (wins probability added). Scott talks Jake through its value, and Jake mocks. Jake went with Adam Jones, Scott took Chris Davis. Who will own it? The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Who had a great week? Who had a terrible week? Who made us ashamed to be Orioles fans? Find out in this week’s GB&U. The guys run through their Good, Bad, and Ugly.

Let's face facts — this was all Andrew Gibson's doing.

Bird's Eye View - Episode 42

+

BEV is a weekly Orioles podcast from the perspective of two die-hard fans. Here, we experience the ups and downs of Orioles baseball, and do our fair share of praising and mocking our beloved team. Our position from the cheap seats helps provide that "Bird’s Eye View." What we bring is perspective. We offer content that will entertain, (very) occasionally inform, and more often than not, validate a little homerism. When it comes to the Orioles, this is your official source for a lack of insight, and baseless opinion.
