Orioles Hall of Fame pitcher and current analyst Jim Palmer joined Scott and Jeremy to give a last minute preview of the Orioles before Opening Day on Monday. Jonathon Schoop made the Opening Day roster, Jim talked about what its like to be so young and make the major league club. “I think the time he spent in the big leagues in September, Jonathon got a chance to play, he had the back problems you didn’t see a healthy young player, I just see a young player that is getting better.”
