Posted on 10 July 2019 by WNST Staff

Back in 2000, Cal Ripken’s career was winding down on a team that had no aspirations of winning or even contending. Mike Hargrove was taking over the ballclub and the O’s would end up selling at the 2000 trade deadline. trading away notable veterans such as BJ Surhoff, Mike Bordick, Harold Baines, and Will Clark. Prior to the season, Cal Ripken opened up to Nestor Aparicio. Let’s go back in time and hear from the Iron Man!

Justin McGuire: O’s must find reliable starters to make 2016 great

Posted on 19 April 2016 by WNST Staff

Justin McGuire joined Nestor to discuss the Orioles’ promising start to the 2016 season and touched on a variety of topics, including their surprise 7-0 start.

“It’s the best start in Baltimore Orioles history,” McGuire said. “It’s a bit surprising that they started out as well as they did. I think the reason they did is kind of what we expected, hitting a lot of home runs and scoring a lot of runs. That’s kind of what we expected from this team…if they can keep that up, it’s going to be a real interesting year.”

While there are mostly positive things to say about the Orioles’ offense, their pitching may prove to write a different script as the season unfolds. Justin touched on the newest starter in town, Yovani Gallardo.

“I think if you’re flying on Gallardo to be a top of the rotation guy, that tells you all you need to know about that rotation,” McGuire said. “If you look at the numbers the last several years, his velocity and consistency has been down, and he’s been pretty uniformly awful after the sixth inning the past couple years. We saw that a couple days ago too, he is a guy that runs out of gas and doesn’t get deep into games for you.”

Justin continued to discuss the starting pitching, and made it clear that he feels that area of the team is the key to a successful 2016 season in Birdland.

Marty Conway: O’s season ticket strategy “unorthodox”

Posted on 15 February 2016 by WNST Staff

Our good friend Marty Conway joined Nestor this week to talk all thing sports business, and one of the main topics of conversation was the Baltimore Orioles substantial increase in their season ticket prices.

Marty found it to be very unusual that the Orioles waited this long to announce their price change for 2016.

“This was very unorthodox and probably more than likely reflects the current management structure in the organization where Peter Angelos will be signing off on this to the point where he needs to see it and feel it,” Conway said.

“It’s also very unorthodox, I would think, to reference in the press statements about it, the signing of players and things like that,” Conway said. “Everybody understands that, you do not have to articulate that in your releases with respect to ticket prices. Unfortunately what they ended up with was headlines that say two things. They say a 20% ticket increase, that’s the number one headline, and the second headline talked about this being the result of signing players.”
