  • Phil Backert Calls In To Discuss the Ups And Downs Of The Orioles

    13:47
    Phil Backert, from EutawStreetReport.com, joined Rob to talk about the roller coaster ride that has been the last few weeks for the Orioles. Coming back from the All Star break the Birds suffered a four game losing streak, including three straight to the Yankees. They responded with a four game win streak to regain the lead in the AL East. Phil says it comes down to starting pitchers and gives credit to the stopper, Chris Tillman, as well as guys like Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy. Phil and Rob also talk about the strength of the AL East, with it holding three teams with at least 50 wins. The pitching conversation naturally turns into a "who should the Orioles trade for?" discussion. Phil says that there isn't much out there that would be much better than what the O's already have. He also tells Rob that Melvin Upton Jr., who has been linked to trade rumors involving the O's, would be a better option via trade than anyone else in his opinion. Listen in for all of that, an update on Hyun Soo Kim's rehab assignment in Bowie and more!

  • Orioles Insider Rich Dubroff On The Big Beatdown

    09:07

    Rich Dubroff joined Vinny and Rob to talk Orioles baseball. Ubaldo Jimenez took the mound yesterday and failed to make it out of the 5th inning for the third time in his last four starts, jumpstarting talk that he could be Designated For Assignment. However, Dubroff doesn’t think you can DFA a guy like Jimenez.
    “Last year he pitched pretty well, this year he’s really inconsistent. I think that Jimenez, he still has a year and two thirds left on his salary, he’ll get another shot. Maybe one, maybe 2, but they won’t let him go” Rich also discussed the outfield situation of the Orioles, which is quite crowded at the moment, and that isn’t a bad thing. Guys like Joey Rickard, Nolan Reimold, and Hyun Soo-Kim are all performing well in different categories. He said that if one guy wants to pull away, they are going to have to go by Buck Showalter’s saying.
    “Buck always likes to say if you want to play more, play better. Rickard made that great play last night, and Rickard is a really really good outfielder, but he has to do a better job of getting on base.”
    Listen to the rest of the podcast here to see what else Dubroff has to say about the Orioles and what he thinks about Brian Matusz and others.

  • Former Ravens Great And Current Buffalo Bills Assistant Ed Reed Joins Us

    09:53
    Ed Reed joined the guys to talk about his career and what his future might hold for him. Reed was a stalwart in the back end of the Ravens defense for years, but this past offseason he was hired to be the assistant defensive backs coach by the Bills this year. When Reed was asked about how it felt to switch organizations after being with the Ravens for so many years, he said it was definitely a weird feeling. “It’s weird, because I wasn’t a player who wanted to switch organizations. I always saw myself with one organization, but as the years went on, I found out how this business works. Not finishing my career there kind of stings a little bit, but there’s a nature of where we’re at, it’s another chapter.”
    Reed was asked about the possibility of being an assistant coach or head coach in his future, but Reed had other plans in mind, opening up some speculation about where he could end up in the future. “I don’t know. After this year’s election I might turn my focus to being a president or something.”
    Baltimore still loves Ed Reed, as he was one of the best defensive players in Ravens history. He helped out in the community, gave 100% effort on every down, and was a key part of bringing the Ravens 2nd super bowl to Baltimore. Listen to the rest of the podcast here to hear about what Reed is doing to help out in the community and what he’s doing to spread the word about healthy nutrition, as well as more football related talk.

  • Ravens Insider Joins Us To Discuss Rookie Minicamp

    06:53
    Ryan Mink joined Vinny and Rob to talk about the Ravens. When asked about his thoughts of rookie camp so far, Mink said that he has been very impressed with all of the rookies, but one guy has stood out to him. “Chris Moore looks really good. He’s quick, and it’s evident that he can run more routes than just the go routes.  Those will need more polishing obviously; he’s a rookie wide receiver.  I was impressed with his first impression, he looks smooth, he’s got good hands, and he made a play where he kind of slipped to the ground and then made a tough catch from his back.” When asked about who he thought has looked the best between the three rookie pass rushers the Ravens drafted in Kamalei Correa, Bronson Kaufusi, and Matt Judon, Mink said that they all have different strengths that will let the Ravens use them in different situations. Kaufusi did not practice on Saturday due to a back injury, but between Correa and Judon, Mink liked what he saw. “Correa is more of a power rusher, he’s pretty quick off of the line, Judon is going to have a little more explosion from what I saw around the edge. Both can win multiple ways, but if I had to say who has that first step, I really liked what I saw from Judon.” Keenan Reynolds has been making the transition from a college quarterback at Navy to an NFL wide receiver, a transition that will take a lot of hard work and dedication. Mink says he sees progress, but he still has a lot of work to do. “He still has a ways to go with the transition to wide receiver, and that shouldn’t be a surprise, I mean he caught one pass in college. It’s a whole new ball game for him out there, I mean you can see that he’s a football player, he can catch the ball, but he had a few drops and he had a nice catch. It’s going take a bit of time for running routes to become natural for him.” Listen in to hear the rest of what Mink had to say about the Ravens rookies and his impressions of everyone so far.

  • Former Oriole Pitcher Dave Johnson Joins The Show

    13:08
    Dave Johnson from MASN joined the Vinny and Rob show to talk Orioles with the guys. The O’s are coming off of an impressive 4-1 win against the last place Yankees. Chris Tillman (3-1) went 7 innings, surrendering 1 run on 5 hits while tying his career high in strikeouts with 9, while also walking 4. When asked about why Tillman has been so effective to begin the year, Johnson said “He’s that guy and I think more than anything his velocity has gone up.”
    Manny Machado played shortstop last night while Ryan Flaherty manned third base, seemingly answering everyone’s questions when it came to how the right side of the infield would look with the loss of J.J. Hardy. There had been some talk about moving Chris Davis to third while having Machado play shortstop, but Johnson said that he is better suited at first. “Chris is very underrated at 3rd, he’s very athletic, and he’s very good at first base, maybe one of the best I’ve seen. The one hoppers and the in-between hops, he just always seems to make that play, and that play is one of the toughest. The ones in-between are the ones you don’t know what they are going to do, but he handles them flawlessly”
    When asked about the possibility of moving Jonathan Schoop to short, Johnson said there is no possibility of that happening. Johnson says what will probably happen is they will call Paul Janish up as depth, while Ryan Flaherty plays third and Manny Machado will fill in for JJ Hardy at shortstop until he returns from the hairline fracture in his foot.
    Listen to the rest of the podcast to hear what Dave has to say about how he thinks the rest of the Orioles – Yankees series will shape up, and also Buck Showalter’s gamesmanship and what tactics he might be using to get his club the edge.

    Ravens insider for Comcast Sports Net, Clifton Brown, joined us to discuss yesterday’s State Of The Ravens press conference held by Ravens brass. The guys have strong opinions on it and Clifton agrees for the most part that it was more than a little disappointing. When asked about the attitude of owner Steve Bisciotti, general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh during the presser Clifton tells us it wasn’t surprising given the fact that the Ravens were eliminated from playoff contention so early in the season.

Clifton wants to see playmakers, regardless of which side of the field they are on, added to the roster.

  • Previewing The Ravens Offseason With Capologist Brian McFarland

    14:18
    Salary cap expert, Brian McFarland, joined us to take a look at the challenges facing Ozzie Newsome and the rest of the Ravens management team this offseason. At the top of the list of concerns is tight end Dennis Pitta. Another concern is the possible restructuring of Joe Flacco’s contract. Brian says making that happen before March 8th should be one of the organization’s top priorities. Another priority is Eugene Monroe and Ladarius Webb. Brian doesn’t see Webb with the team next year, which would create six million dollars in dead money next season. When asked about Terrell Suggs, Brian tells us that there aren’t very many scenarios in which he sees Suggs let go. He also says that Darryl Smith will be an interesting contract to pay attention to as the offseason progresses. Its never too early to get ready for next season, start right here!

    With the Ravens season at an end, its time to shift our attention to the other birds of Baltimore and who better than MASN insider, Roch Kubatko. Roch says the loss of Ned Rice, who left the organization to join Andy McPhail to be the assistant general manager of the Phillies. Roch adds that Rice was held in high regard in the Orioles clubhouse behind the scenes and many said Rice knew more about the rules of the game than anyone they’ve known. The guys then discuss some of the big name players whose futures with the club are still up in the air. Chris Davis, Wei-Yin Chen and many others have yet to re-sign and Roch tells us there’s not much progress with either. With pitchers and catchers reporting to Sarasota on February 18th, expect a lot more news from Roch in the near future!

  • Talking Ravens With Brent Harris

    08:57
    Ravens reporter Brent Harris joined the show to talk about the state of the organization as this struggle of a season is coming to an end. Vinny has maintained throughout the season that the team overvalued the talent level on the team, but Brent says that its hard to determine that value with the litany of injuries they’ve had to endure. He also goes on to say that coach John Harbaugh is looking at the final three games of the season as a “tryout” for some of the younger players on the team heading into next season. Brent cites Lardarius Webb’s move from cornerback to safety as one of those tryouts. Another player making a positional move could also be offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele. When asked about his biggest disappointment of the season, Brent tells us that the team’s bad luck has been a standout for him. Listen in to find out if Brent thinks any members of the coaching staff and front office could be looking for work elsewhere next season and more!

    09:19
    Maryland head basketball coach, Mark Turgeon, joined us to discuss his team’s success through the first 10 games of the season and to look ahead a bit at their upcoming games like the matchup with Princeton here at The Royal Farms Arena. Mark has been quite impressed with the play of Melo Trimble, as we all have, and transfer Rasheed Sulaimon. Coach tells us that playing games against the likes of Georgetown and North Carolina is doing nothing but helping the notoriety of the program. When asked about Diamond Stone, Coach Turgeon, says that he is making great strides in his growth as a player and is quite an asset for the lineup coming off the bench. He goes on to say that given a little more time to improve, Diamond Stone could be among the top players in the nation. Jake Layman has been quiet at the start of his senior season, but Mark says to keep an eye on him because while his scoring might be down, his contribution is not. Listen in for how Coach Turgeon feels about the rest of this season and the program moving forward right here!

Chris was very impressed with freshman Diamond Stone, who has taken criticism early on in the season, who checked into the game to a cascade of boos from the crowd at MSG. The guys agree that with some hard work in the weight and film rooms, Diamond could turn into a force to be reckoned with. Maryland’s defense, particularly on the perimeter, also impressed Chris. The Terps held Connecticut to just 22 first half points. Melo Trimble was a high point for Maryland, scoring 25 points to lead all scorers.

He also says that Rousey’s corner did her no favors during the fight and that moving forward, Ronda should think about changing camps.

Melo Trimble led all scorers with 24 and Rasheed Sulaimon came up big with a three pointer at the end to seal the win for Maryland. Chris gives us his take on the big surprises and disappointments of the contest and some things to watch for moving forward. Chris didn’t like what he saw from the Terrapins’ big men defensively and saw some room for improvement from Jake Layman. When it comes do Diamond Stone, both Rob and Chris agree that there is a learning curve for him and he deserves some time to get acquainted with the team and system.

    Ralph Russo, from the AP, joined the show to talk about the college football landscape as the season is coming to a close. While the college football playoff is a big story, the bigger story this week was the situation at the University of Missouri. Ralph was in Columbia covering the story and had some interesting info and perspective for us. Turning their attention back to the field, JT Barrett was reinstated after being suspended for driving drunk and Ralph sees that being a big boost for the Buckeye offense. That boost could be much needed with a possible showdown with Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines for the Big 10 title. Much to Rob’s chagrin, Clemson is the best team in the nation in his eyes and Ralph agrees. Although Clemson’s defense is a little thin in his opinion, they are still the cream of the crop. Listen in to find out how Ralph thinks the SEC shakes out for the rest of the season and his prediction for Mike Locksley’s future in College Park.
  • Mel Antonen on Orioles Free Agency And Hall Of Fame Voting

    13:30
    MASN broadcaster Mel Antonen joined Rob to discuss the Orioles offseason. With news breaking today about pitching prospect Dylan Bundy getting shut down again with soreness in his elbow, Rob and Mel talk about whether or not its time for the O’s to give up on Bundy. Mel says patience is a virtue with Bundy. When it comes to what the Birds need, Mel says at least one starting pitcher is needed along with a first baseman and a corner outfielder. With Chris Davis being the biggest factor in how the organization may or may not move in free agency, Mel poses the question: does Davis sign and hope for that pitching to get added or wait for that pitching to get added and then sign? On those pitchers, Doug Fister is a name that excites both Mel and Rob. Another name that excites the guys is Denard Span. Listen in to find out what Mel thinks about Ken Griffey Jr’s chances of getting 100% of Hall of Fame votes!
