Podcast: Can the Orioles fix what's wrong in time to make the postseason?

We've got some post-no-hitter blues on the newest Camdencast, and it's left us gloomy about the Orioles. We run through all of what's gone wrong to get us here and agonize over whether it could have been different, or if it can be fixed.

Honestly, what the heck is up with the Orioles? How did we get here? Everything feels terrible and yet they're only two games out of a wild card spot. All they have to do is turn it around a bit. It just feels so impossible that they could do that. It's a source of anguish for both Alex and I on the latest Camdencast, because for all that this is intensely frustrating, what else could they have done?

Some fairly reasonable bets were made that at least one or two of a group of players would, if not be great, at least be OK. Instead, all of them  have sucked and it cost millions of dollars. Yet the idea of making any big trades to move key players from last year's team just feels... wrong. All of which has led to the Orioles drifting to, well, here. Not bad, but not quite good enough

It beats the heck out of the 2010 season, which was not yet two weeks old when Orioles radio broadcaster Joe Angel proclaimed he was ready for a straitjacket after the Orioles fell to 1-11. And yet it's disappointing too, when we know they could be better, if only a few things had gone differently.

This podcast has a running time of about 1:15, and is also probably me at my most Tim Kurkjian-like, for better or worse. All of this and more in the latest Camdencast - again, you can listen right now, above.

Our iTunes situation needs a little work, so sorry to the subscribers who aren't able to get it on there this time. Hoping to work it out soon.

If you've ever got any feedback for the podcast, please feel free to let me know in the comments. There is always something I can do better. Camdencast remains safe for work, provided your boss doesn't mind if you listen to a podcast instead of while doing work. Take care until next time, and go Orioles!
