Orioles Manager Buck Showalter joins Ed & Steve to talk about players reporting to spring training, the World Baseball Classic’s affect on him as a manager and both Baltimore team’s being successful.
Buck didn’t watch the Grammy’s but he did see some of the ladies fashion.
He also watched the Ravens win the Super Bowl. He enjoyed the game with the sound off and he immediately claims “It’s our turn.”
Since the Bullets aren’t around anymore, it’s baseball season in Baltimore. Buck likes the relationship between Baltimore’s teams and encourages the whole city being a team. The Ravens wear their hats and they’re wearing the Super Bowl champ hats down in Florida. “Why not” and “thats how it should be” are his remarks on the teams supporting one another. He likes that Adam Jones was on the field throughout the playoffs and he knows what he was yelling at Joe Flacco.
