Former Orioles great Ken Singleton joined Ed & Steve to talk about the Orioles early season success. Baltimore is currently 5-4 with a two game win streak.
Steve asked Singleton about his thoughts on the Orioles. Singleton said he expects it to be a very interesting year and that everyone in the division looks to be very close.
Ed asked about Chris Davis. He told him that the Yankees have seen what is going on and pitching around him might have to be an option because he is killing the ball.
Steve wanted to know what Singleton thought about Adam Jones. Singleton made a comparison between Jones and Eddie Murray and how clutch he has been lately.
Ed asked about Manny Machado and his talent. Singleton said that there is a good reason why he is batting second in the batting order and he is a supreme talent. He in a way likened his talent to Alex Rodriguez.
Steve asked about getting more African American players in the Major Leagues. Singleton said he says some of it might be financial. He said you can make money right away in the NFL and the NBA but it takes some time in the MLB.
Lastly Singleton was asked about the brawl that happened between the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers. He told the guys that he saw it, and didn’t think that Greinke tried to hit Quentin due to the situation in the game.
