As we wrap up what seems like our months-long preview of this ever-important trade deadline for the O's, we bring in yet another one of baseball's finest writers to give final insight on what the rest of the league anticipates from the birds.

Buster Olney of ESPN.com and the Baseball Tonight podcast makes his BMOShow debut (16:30), sharing the perspectives of rival GM's on Dan Duquette's "plan," mentoring a young Jason LaCanfora at the Baltimore Sun, as well as life on the farm... No, not Aberdeen or Delmarva, but an actual dairy farm!

Plus, the boys preview the start of Ravens camp (45:35) as the team looks to compensate for roster losses due to injuries and otherwise.

And as always, we have Jerry's homework, Jason's Married Guy rant, our minor leaguer of the week... as well as some bonus storytime with Coleman that will surely elicit many facepalms.

We at B-More Opinionated are the conductors of the "Sell! Sell! Sell!" train when it comes to the Orioles, and this week we bring in a longtime MLB General Manager to help explain how to best handle this trade deadline in Baltimore.

MLB Network's Dan O'Dowd, former GM of the Rockies and Indians, joins the pod to grade some of our proposed trades, explain some of the logic behind the front office's decisions thus far, and where to go from here for fans across Birdland. (36:30)

Later on we catch up with Ravens' all-pro Kicker Justin Tucker, who hosted a youth football camp at Patterson Park -- Jason's old stomping grounds! (56:30)

Plus as always, we have our Minor Leaguer of the week, Jerry's homework, and a very Coleman-esque Married Guy rant from Jason.

As we enter the second half of what's been a turbulent year for the birds of Baltimore, it's time to give our mid-season grades! Jason and Jerry break down the performance of each Oriole from Schoop, Trey, and Manny.... all the way down to the Norfolk shuttle. (5:00)

John Eisenberg of BaltimoreRavens.com also joins the show to talk all things Baltimore sports along with his new book, "The Streak: Lou Gehrig, Cal Ripken Jr., and Baseball's Most Historic Record." John explains his process of putting the book together, comparing and contrasting Gehrig to Ripken, and also shares his insight on the state of the O's as well as the Ravens in a fantastic conversation. (42:00)

We also talk to Jerry about his quest to hunt down bigfoo--I mean John Daly at Caves Valley this week on the PGA Champions Tour, Jason gives a major update on LeVeon Bell's situation in Pittsburgh, plus much more!

On the other side of the Fourth and now comfortably into summer, we at B-More Opinionated continue to soldier through another rough week of Orioles baseball. As the trade deadline inches nearer every day, the guys continue their hope that the team doesn't fool themselves into being buyers.

While the O's struggle in the big leagues, they're sporting some shining sources of optimism down on the farm. BMO Show was lucky enough to catch up with top outfield prospect, Bowie Baysox CF Austin Hays! Austin talks about life in the minor leagues, his aspirations going forward, and his approach during his monster first half this year across multiple levels.

As always we catch up on Jerry's latest homework assignment, a slimy Married Guy Rant, and our Minor Leaguer of the Week (besides Austin Hays, of course!)
