It's a jam-packed episode this week, as we are privileged to be joined by Orioles manager Buck Showalter! (28:00)

Buck opens up candidly about his views on the organization's depth, development, roster building philosophies and more! He goes into detail about his view on Starting Pitching following his rotation's tough season (29:00), the importance of being able to better develop homegrown pitching (31:30), looking to insert athleticism and youth into his defense (34:00), the idea that the proverbial window is closing (35:45), other quality managers losing their jobs (37:15), the progress of top prospect Chance Cisco (41:15), and even joins in our frustration about the lost talent in poor trades over recent years (44:30). This is an absolute must-listen for any Orioles fan.

 

The boys also discuss at length the Ravens' pleasantly surprising drubbing of the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football, the Ravens' place in the playoff picture (15:08), and our own Jason LaCanfora goes in-depth on Jerry Jones' recent tantrums with the NFL League Office (21:10).

 

As always, we have Jerry (and Adam)'s homework, Jason's Married Guy Rant (with a bonus 50-year-old Guy Rant from Jerry), and this week's picks! Don't miss it!

Another week of the B-More Opinionated podcast means another week of trying to identify the problems of the Ravens' inept offense! Jason and Jerry open the show talking all-things Ravens, including their short week looking ahead to Thursday Night Footbal vs. Miami.

 

Then, Ravens legendary linebacker Bart Scott joins the show (30:45) to share his take on the Ravens, the quality of NFL's on-field product, how he would fare if he were still in his prime, and more!

 

And of course, what would an episode of the BMO Show be without checking in on our beloved O's? Jason and Jerry discuss a new crop of pitching coaches that have recently come available (46:20).

 

We also have Jerry (and Adam)'s homework, Jason's Married Guy Rant, and our picks for Thursday Night Football. Check it out!

Following the Ravens frustrating loss at home against daaaa Bearz [3:45] Jason and Jerry try to figure out how the Ravens can improve, then look ahead to the team's week 7 matchup in Minnesota.

Our guest this week will be featured in a new way, as our own Jason La Canfora kicks off what will become a new standalone series in the BMOShow family. In the wake of the U.S. Men's Soccer Team's failure to qualify for the World Cup, Jason will be holding longform conversations with a variety of insider guests who can help put a diagnosis on what has gone wrong in U.S. Soccer. [31:45]

Baltimore-native Santino Quaranta, a former U.S. National and current youth development extraordinaire, joins Jason to talk at length about any and all shortcomings of the current American soccer system - from the socioeconomics of youth development to strategy in last week's travesty in Trinidad & Tobago.

As always, we have Jerry (and Adam)'s homework [1:15:00], Jason's Married Guy Rant, and our official picks for Week 7. Check it out!

Also, our own Jason La Canfora goes into detail about his bombshell interview from over the weekend.

 

As always, we have our Married Guy Rant, weekly predictions, and Homework -- featuring the on-mic debut of our ruthless intern, Adam. Tune in!

As one season rolls into the station and another seems to be coming off the rails, B-More Opinionated has all the bases covered!

 

First, Jerry and Jason recap the weekend's big Ravens-Steelers matchup. The boys then deconstruct the Ravens' 2-2 start, as our own Jason LaCanfora leaves no stone unturned when pointing out the team's fatal flaws.

 

Then, as the Orioles' season mercifully ends with a whimper, it's time for end-of-season grades. Our guest, former O's great Ross Grimsley, pulls no punches when laying out what *should* be the bird's plan of action.

 

And as always, we have Jerry's homework, Jason's Married Guy Rant, and much more!
