Episode 24 is a wrap! We talk the MLB Winter Meetings, Maryland Terrapins and preview the Baltimore Ravens huge matchup against the New England Patriots.
The Baltimore Orioles attended the Winter Meetings, but left without making any moves other than two selections in the Rule 5 Draft. Is that a surprise to anyone? Not O’s fans. We are used to these kinds of offseasons during Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter, but at least he is making us laugh with his comments on Jose Bautista. We discuss whether a Matt Wieters return is still a possibility and the ongoing discussion about whether Zach Britton be traded. With the kind of money that Aroldis Chapman and Mark Melancon have received this offseason and the assumption that the Orioles will not pay that much for a closer, a trade might make the most sense.
We welcome Liam Beatus of Terps Watch and Campus Rush to the show to talk the Maryland Terrapins basketball team and preview the football team’s upcoming bowl game against Boston College. Mark Turgeon’s bunch is off to a 9-1 start after last night’s win over Howard, while D.J. Durkin has 15 more practices before taking on Boston College in the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit on Dec. 26. It might not surprise you that the focus in College Park has shifted from one team over the other.
We end the show giving our takes on the Baltimore Ravens as they prepare for the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. Scott is feeling real optimistic of the Ravens chance going into Foxborough, but Joe thinks NFL Joe and the Ravens are getting way too much credit for one blowout win over the Miami Dolphins. There is one good thing that has come out of the past few weeks, Breshad Perriman is finally making big plays and has touchdowns in three of the last four games. Of course, we give our picks against the spread and have our 7s. Until next week, cue the music (and I have been spelling it right).
