Reporting Mark Zinno
Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com joined Zinno to talk baseball and the Orioles. And while the Birds are playing extremely well right now, they aren’t the most dangerous team in the game. Who is?? Well, Knobler says it’s the Toronto Blue Jays. They have won eight in a row and host the Orioles for a weekend series in Toronto. The team that the Blue Jays assembled should only get better as they are getting Jose Reyes back soon.
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE:
Knobler was impressed with the Orioles and their toughness. He says that’s why they are winning games this year. But he feels that the pitching has to get more consistent. He also says that pitcher on the Orioles with the “stuff” isn’t even in the bigs anymore, he got demoted to AAA-Norfolk! It’s Jake Arrieta, says Knobler.
Baseball is interviewing players in the Biogenesis scandal. The suspensions should be handed down soon, but it may take longer than expected due to the rules in the collective bargaining agreement. Finally, Knobler and Zinno discussed two of the best young arms in the game, Matt Harvey and Zach Wheeler of the Mets. Knobler said that Harvey has better stuff than Nats ace Stephen Strasburg.
