The NFL season is upon us! Jason and Jerry go in-depth on Week 1's matchup against the Bills, but also go week-by-week for their full season predictions... and a couple over/under's for fun.

 

Plus, we catch up on our beloved hapless Orioles. Craig Gentry is finally out of town, at long last!

 

As always we have our weekly rant, homework, and minor leaguer of the week. Tune in!

Aug 13, 2018

For a mid-late-summer week, things have been pretty crazy here in Baltimore sports. First, we talk the Ravens' pre-season home opener against the Rams and all the latest surrounding that performance with CBS Sports' Evan Washburn!

Then, we discuss the first brightspot for the Orioles since the fire sale -- Cedric Mullins debut! We got all sorts of nuggets surrounding the O's silver-lined clobbering by the Red Sox this past weekend.

We also have Jason's rant, centered around the disturbing reports out of College Park regarding D.J. Durkin's future as Maryland Football coach, and the tragic, unacceptable death of Baltimore-local Jordan McNair.

And as always, we have our Minor League Player of the Week and our weekly homework assignment.

The O's seem to be facing the right direction, finally. We discuss how they need to continue to follow through.

Now that Manny Machado has Gone Hollywood, we at the B-More Opinionated time don't spend (too much) time patting ourselves on the back -- there is still much work to do!

We look ahead to the rest of the moves we hope and expect the O's to make ahead of the trade deadline next week.

Plus, both Jerry and Jason were at the opening of Ravens training camp this week. Get the full report on Joe Flacco, Lamar Jackson, and much more!

As always we have Jason's Married Guy Rant, homework with Danny, and our Minor League Player of the Week!

The boys vent about the Orioles' indecision over young players like Tanner Scott, Steve Wilkerson, and Chance Cisco who have all been sent down and back this season.

 

Plus, Terry Hasseltine, Vice President of the Maryland Stadium Authority joins the show to talk about Baltimore's bid as a potential host city for a World Cup game in 2026!

May 3, 2018

Hate to say we told you so! Well... that may not be fully true. Jason and Jerry give the full postmortem on the Ravens' invigorating draft, reviewing our predictions and how Ozzie and the front office came through big over the weekend.

 

We're joined by the top draft choice himself, TE Hayden Hurst, in a conversation any Ravens fan will be ecstatic to hear. Hayden is a fun, genuine, confident dude that fans everywhere will be excited to root for. He goes into his first impressions of The Castle, working with Lamar Jackson, and more!

 

Then, we discuss another week in the life of the wilting Orioles. Are we any closer to making big changes? We discuss.

 

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

Apr 26, 2018

In one of our best shows of the year, our own Jason LaCanfora empties his notebook ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft, and Ken Rosenthal returns to the show to talk everything Orioles!

 

We open the show talking about possibilities in the early rounds for the Ravens (3:00), the potential quarterback scenarios (14:00), and the rest of the AFC North (18:30).

 

Then we talk another week in Orioles listlessness (22:00) before being joined by one of our favorite guests ever, fresh-off-the-DL, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal! (27:00) Kenny goes into detail about the pending shifts in the Orioles front office, Manny Machado's future, and even the prospects of one particular Baltimore legend who may be waiting in the wings. A fantastic conversation you won't want to miss.

 

And, as always, we have our Minor Leaguer of the Week, Homework with Adam, and Jason's Married Guy Rant.

Mar 28, 2018

IT'S FINALLY HERE!

 

Our favorite holiday of the sports calendar is upon us as Opening Day has reached Baltimore! The boys talk all thing O's, go over our annual Over/Under predictions, discuss final roster decisions, and more!


Then, we're joined by MLB.com's resident prospect guru Jonathan Mayo to break down the O's farm system and help predict which baby birds we may see in Baltimore before the season is out.

 

Plus, we have the long awaited debut of Adam's new Orioles theme song! And as always Jason's Married Guy Rant is a treat. Listen on your way into the game, and Go O's hon!

Mar 1, 2018

The first week of Spring Training games are in the books, and the Orioles still seem to be stumbling their way into shape. Jerry and Jason discuss all the latest goings on in Sarasota.

Then, the boys touch on the not-so-feared turtles of the University of Maryland as the Terps fall backwards into the B1G Tournament.

Our featured guest for this week is the great Ed O'Bannon, who shot first salvo in the legal battle against the NCAA's alleged "Amateurism."

And, as always, we have Adam's homework, an ALL-TIMER Married Guy Rant from Jason, and more!

Feb 16, 2018

As the Orioles' pitchers and catchers report to good ol' Sarasota, we here at the B-More Opinionated podcast are brushing off the dust and kicking off a new season of relentless venting about our favorite birds of Baltimore!

 

Jason and Jerry delve into an early preview of Spring Training, and run down some of their hopes and goals for this team (spoiler alert: they're pretty low). They talk about the O's chances to enter a rebuild with a new young core, as well as the seemingly constant frustration with those in the Warehouse (Hi, guys!)

 

Then, we bring in Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports and MLB Network to help bring some perspective to the Orioles' conversation. Heyman has been breaking news about the O's more than anyone in the last year, and he discusses the handcuffs of ownership, the chances the birds spend or rebuild, as well as Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter's futures in Baltimore.

 

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

Feb 9, 2018

What a week it's been! Steve Bisciotti held the state of the Ravens, the Super Bowl overdelivered, the Orioles... re-signed Craig Gentry?.... and the Wizards excel despite losing their best player! We have it all covered on this week's episode.

Jason and Jerry go in-depth on Bisciotti's attempt to frame the beleaguered narrative surrounding the Ravens and touch on the Orioles before our old friend Tony Massenburg stops by to weigh in on the drama in D.C. with John Wall and the Wiz!

Plus, we have a bonus guest in honor of Ray Lewis's induction into the Hall of Fame -- former Ravens' Super Bowl-winning coach, Brian Billick! Jason caught up with Coach on radio row, and gives us 5 good minutes on Ray, the current state of the NFL, fan attendance, and more!

And as always we have Adam's (attempted) homework assignment, Jason's Married Guy rant with stories from Super Bowl week in Minnesota, as well as a much-needed intervention with Jerry about his privileged parking habits. Check it out!

Jan 31, 2018

There are few sports legends in the history of Baltimore that had as much of a presence as our guest this week, Ray Lewis!!

While Ray gets ready to head into the Hall of Fame this weekend, we are joined by the man himself for an exclusive interview for Baltimoreans.

We also have plenty of notes and frustrations from Fan Fest, and preview the big game on Sunday!

And as always we have our homework with Adam where we plan a MiLB Road Trip for the ages, a legendary Married Guy Rant with Jason, and much more!

Dec 14, 2017

It's an age of existential crisis when it comes to Baltimore sports. The Ravens lose a heartbreaker to the Steelers in frustrating fashion, the Orioles are (finally) coming to their senses as fans start to grasp the idea of a post-Manny Birdland.... and we're talking it all!

 

We start with a full recap of Sunday Night's epic matchup (4:05), and preview the scariest game vs. a winless opponent this city has ever seen.

 

Then, we discuss the news coming out of MLB's Winter Meetings that the Orioles are fielding offers for superstar Manny Machado... a year too late for our liking, but what can you do? (26:00)

 

Our guest this week calls in from none other than the Winter Meetings itself, as Mark Feinsand of MLB.com -- formerly of the NY Daily News -- talks all things AL East in the Winter Meetings. (34:45)

 

And as always, we have Adam's homework assignment, Jason's Married Guy Rant, and a whole lot of Jerry being Jerry... check it out!
