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.

Jul 14, 2017

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!)

Jun 28, 2017

B-More Opinionated takes a field trip this week down the Baltimore-Washington Parkway to visit with dear friend of the show, Dr. Tony Kornheiser!

Live from the This Show Stinks! studios at the beautiful Chatter restaurant on Wisconsin Ave in D.C., Jerry and Jason discuss another foot-in-mouth situation for Dan Duquette and the Orioles.

Then, we welcome in the legend himself -- Tony Kornheiser. Tony and the boys discuss ventures in the podcast world, his new restaurant, the latest in Washington sports collapses, and his favorite memories of Camden Yards!

And as always, we have Jerry's homework (with YOUR input), Jason's Married Guy Rant, and more!

Jun 21, 2017

Another exciting episode of B-More Opinionated, even with our own Jerry Coleman on assignment in Sarasota!

Jason and Jerry talk about attending Ravens' OTA's, the Orioles' and their continued apparent indecision on what direction they're going, plus much more.

We're also proud to welcome former Baltimore Stallions GM Jim Popp. Following the untimely passing of former Stallions head coach Don Matthews, Jason and Jim reminisce about one of the most exciting and magical runs any sports franchise in this city has seen. Between low budgets and dilapidated team facilities, the Stallions still managed to bring a CFL championship to Baltimore -- the only non-Canadian team ever to accomplish that feat -- and led to the NFL's return to Baltimore.

 

And as always, we have Jerry's homework, Jason's Married Guy rant, and our minor league player of the week.

Jun 15, 2017

It's a jam-packed BMO Show this week, as we have not one but two guests... and a rant for the ages.

First we cover the Ravens', catching up on the addition of Jeremy Maclin, and talking Dennis Pitta's injury and future potential of the receiving corps with Joe Flacco.

We also sit down with a Ravens legend, Hall of Fame lineman Jonathan Ogden to talk his mentorship of Ronnie Stanley, as well as his relationship with the Ravens and the city of Baltimore.

Then, we change topics to something that has been brewing for months on this podcast: Jason LaCanfora's official (well-prepared!) case to fire Orioles' GM Dan Duquette. Jason fully recaps Duquette's tenure in Baltimore and discusses exactly why the move cannot wait.

Finally, Academy Award winning filmmaker Barry Levinson joins the pod to let off his own steam about the Orioles, as well as his recent and upcoming film projects with HBO!

Jun 7, 2017

While the Orioles continue to throw Triple-A pitchers into high leverage situations and the Ravens lose key playmakers in meaningless practices, we catch up with the most undercovered Baltimore sports story today!

Christos F.C., your favorite local semi-pro soccer club, have played their way from the beer league to competing in the U.S. Open Cup with MLS giants D.C. United. Team Captain and lead striker Pete Caringi III joins the pod and talks about the less than improbable road that has led Christos F.C. to serious cup contention.

Jason LaCanfora and Jerry Coleman also discuss the difficult week at The Castle, where the Ravens lost CB Tavon Young for the year, and TE Dennis Pitta -- potentially for his career. Meanwhile Dan Duquette and the Orioles' developmental strategies (or lack thereof) remain a thorn in the side of many fans -- particularly those co-hosting the podcast.

And as always, we have Jerry's homework, Jason's Married Guy Rant, our Minor Leaguer of the Week, and much more!

Jun 1, 2017

As the Orioles look to put the month of May behind them, we at B-more Opinionated have taken it upon ourselves to talk about the tough decisions the O's front office faces -- with a Duquette, no less!

Former O's & Mets executive, Analyst on MLB.com and MLB Network Radio, and Dan's own cousin Jim Duquette joins the show to discuss the process of developing talent, what options the team may have via trade, and their chances with looming free agents such as Manny Machado.

Jason La Canfora and Jerry Coleman go further in depth on the birds' woes, as well as our Minor Leaguer of the Week, Jerry's homework assignment, and Jason's married-guy rant!

May 18, 2017

On a double-stuffed episode of BMore Opinionated, we are joined by legendary columnist and co-host of ESPN's Pardon The Interruption, Mike Wilbon to help us rag on DC sports -- while also bringing perspective in terms of where the Wizards and Capitals go from here.

We're also joined by the only living trainer of a Triple Crown-winning horse, Bob Baffert. Bob discusses life after winning it all with American Pharaoh last summer, his love for Baltimore, and the future of the vaunted (yet dilapidated) Pimlico Raceway.

And, as always, we are packed to the brim with O's talk, our Minor Leaguer of the week, Jerry's homework, Jason's married guy rant, plus much more! Don't miss it.

May 11, 2017

On another jam-packed episode of the BMO Show, Ravens' top draft choice Marlon Humphrey joins the show to talk about the draft process from his perspective, as well as getting acclimated with the team, just how much (or little) knowledge or communication he had with the team before his selection, and more!

Plus, Jason and Jerry recap another week in Orioles' baseball as the birds are still jostling for best record in the American League. We catch up with our buddy Trey Mancini, discuss possibilities regarding another friend Hyun Soo Kim, and the continuing evolution of a Britton-less bullpen.

And as always, we have Jerry's homework, Jason's Married Guy rant, and our new O's Minor Leaguer of the Week!

Apr 20, 2017

Jerry and Jason open the show discussing the latest Ravens' draft possibilities (3:10), and debate Adam 'Pacman' Jones' latest run-in with the media (10:15). The guys then move on to talk about the week's Orioles-related news before being joined by the Iron Man himself, Cal Ripken Jr. (31:00). Cal discusses 25 years of Camden Yards, the current state of the O's, and even the resting of NBA players. Also in this episode: Jerry completes(!) his homework for the week, Jason's married guy rant, and more!

Apr 14, 2017

Jason and Jerry digest the first week of Orioles action before talking Ravens' draft plans ahead of the upcoming draft. Could the Ravens be setting up a smokescreen by specifically naming WR's Mike Williams and John Ross? Jason La Canfora thinks the Ravens could find a different 1st Round pass-catcher. Homework, Married Guy Rant, and much more! Crack a couple Natty Boh's hon and enjoy this abbreviated edition of Bmore Opinionated.

 
Apr 5, 2017

Camden Yards got one hell of a celebration for turning 25 this year and opening day was as exciting as any O's fan could have asked for. Senior VP of Planning and Development for the LA Dodgers, Janet Marie Smith, was one of the minds behind the design and construction of our beloved ball park so the guys call her up to get the best history lesson of the stadium available.

Mar 31, 2017

Baseball is on Bmore's mind so the guys talk O's and play GM\Manager.  They even put a wager on a certain roster move that begins being paid out on this episode.  Follow @bmoshowpod to find out what the deal is.  Jason brings the latest from the NFL owner's meetings, including a little hangout with Coach Harbs, and the guys call up Will Likely to talk about the draft.

Mar 22, 2017

You never get a better perspective on a team's locker room than from a guy who just left it.  The All Pro fullback, Kyle HugeCheck, gives you his take on what it's like being a Raven.  Plus O's, Terps, and you know.

Mar 16, 2017

The newest Raven was in town for a press conference and got a little more than he bargained for with the semi snow storm... We're going to go ahead and blame that storm for stealing some of the quality of the conversation but you still get to know Tony better before he dons the purple and black.  The main attraction this week: Coleman finally completed his Orioles related homework.

Mar 1, 2017

The O's are actually playing games... kind of... So Jerry trekked to Sarasota to catch up with the team, including Jason's favorite member of the organization.  The Florida trip also hooked the podcast up with an Oriole legend with some unbelievable stories about his time with the club, Don Stanhouse.

Feb 23, 2017

The guys have been talking about this ever since their trip to the Warehouse... John Angelos makes his second appearance and he delivers his unique perspective on his team, the world of baseball, and well...the world.  The Executive Vice President of the Orioles is always very generous with his time on the pod, so the guys get all of the usual business out of the way first then dive deep with John.

Feb 15, 2017

The former All Star shooting guard for the Baltimore Bullets and current Wizards broadcaster breaks down the Wiz's season like few can.  He also gets historical about the days of the franchise being in Baltimore and his life in the city.  The guys would never leave out Bmore's two true organizations, and really focus on their offseason.

Feb 8, 2017

The Baltimore Legend drops by now that football season is in the books to talk about LI, his time in Bmore, and what the future holds for him.  Unlike some of his peers as a player, Ed did not seek as much publicity and rarely sat down for full interviews with the media, but he did not mince words with the guys.  You have to hear some of his takes on the state of the NFL.

Feb 2, 2017

The guys switch roles this week as Jason is on the road instead of Jerry.  The events of both of their recent trips come up as topics, but the guys focus on what's going to go down in Houston and how the teams in MD are doing, whether they are playing or not.

Jan 27, 2017

Bmore has been getting a taste of spring weather, so the guys get ready for bat cracks and called strike three's with one of the O's top prospects, Trey Mancini.  He has a lot of fun with the guys talking about his stint in the show, his offseason, and his role coming into Spring.

Jan 18, 2017

What's working behind the scenes to bring our favorite Bmore sports teams into our homes on all the different platforms we have available to us?  A former marketing exec for the O's and Rangers, Marty Conway, joins to shed some light on what drives the marketing engine and what the future could hold for Baltimore's franchises.

Jan 12, 2017

The new year is supposed to bring hope and new beginnings, and all of Baltimore was hoping for that with their sports teams.  Bart Scott sheds some light on what to expect from the Ravens after hearing the brass talk about the off season.  More of the same to come in Bmore?  The guys break it all down for you.
