I’ll admit it, I’m happy for Pittsburgh’s baseball fans ….

July 20, 2011 | WNST Interns

Admittedly, I am one of the most vigilant instigators when it comes to picking on Pittsburgh’s fans – especially of the Steelers variety. Part of it is envy, another part is disdain and well …. it’s just easy to do. Yet, as we’re hopefully just a week away from the start of NFL training camps […]

Why is JJ Hardy staying in Baltimore?

Why is JJ Hardy staying in Baltimore?

July 18, 2011 | WNST Interns

You can count me among the collection of those who were a little surprised by Saturday’s announcement of JJ Hardy’s new deal with the Orioles. From a financial perspective, I don’t dispute the commitment from the birds. The organization’s top prospect, Manny Machado, is learning his craft at Frederick and limited middle infield options appear […]

It's time to name the GENIUS and JACKASS of the week .....

It’s time to name the GENIUS and JACKASS of the week …..

July 15, 2011 | WNST Interns

Each Friday, Ryan Chell and I ponder the rosters of sports personalities that have made a GOOD or BAD impression throughout the week. We consider athletes, coaches, owners, media and just about anyone else with a connection to sports. Fittingly, we call the segment GENIUS & JACKASS OF THE WEEK ….. Given the sparingly thin […]

What is a Living Legend?

What is a Living Legend?

July 13, 2011 | WNST Interns

During yesterday’s Afternoon Drive, we debated the topic of “Living Legends” in baseball. Along with Allen McCallum, we talked about what it takes to be regarded with such reverence. The best description we could outline was “competitors that transcended the game” ….. During today’s show, we’re going to open the conversation to all sports. And, […]

I thought Adrian Gonzalez was boycotting Arizona …..

July 12, 2011 | WNST Interns

Before you start reading this blog, be assured of one thing; it has NOTHING to do with politics, immigration issues or Supreme Court decisions.  But, is has everything to do with holding athletes accountable for their words and actions. A little more than a year ago, Adrian Gonzalez drew a line in the sand at […]

Yankees swindle a 23 year old kid who loves baseball …..

July 11, 2011 | WNST Interns

Indeed, we are upon that time of summer when Baltimore’s baseball fans must start looking elsewhere for compelling storylines and boxscores.  I suppose spinning the recent Orioles vs. Red Sox series into a “beanball war” might drum a little interest, but do any of us really think the birds were a formidable opponent? Of course […]

On Friday, the Orioles demoted pitcher Zach Britton to Double-A Bowie. Today, the rest of the Orioles have also been demoted to Double A Bowie. “We just think the Orioles have a few things to work on,” said President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail. “Like pitching and hitting. And also fielding.” Sources say the Orioles […]

Nearly a year later, are the Orioles starting to break Showalter?

July 06, 2011 | WNST Interns

In just a month’s time, Buck Showalter will be celebrating his one year anniversary as skipper of the Baltimore Orioles. That’s right, if you fast forward 28 days on the calendar, you’ll arrive at August 3rd – which marks the day Buck first appeared in his black and orange garb, while sternly staring at the […]

Why would JJ Hardy EVER sign an extension with the Orioles?

July 01, 2011 | WNST Interns

Imagine you’re standing in the shoes of JJ Hardy’s representatives/agents at LSW Baseball & Associates ….. Better yet, just pretend you’re JJ Hardy, himself ….. As he’s approaching his 29th birthday and his first shot at free agency, rumors persist the Orioles are discussing a possible contract extension with Hardy’s legal team.  Smart move on […]
