The Scott Garceau Show With Jeremy Conn
Whatever the Orioles are thinking, they are going to make one and they need an upgrade. Miguel Gonzales has also been up in the air to trade from the Orioles. Although Britton has been doing well, neither him or Ryan Webb may not be the answer for the Oriole, pitching wise. Orioles should probably look into a left handed pitcher. Some names thrown out there: Mike Dunn, from Miami Marlins, and Brad Ziegler, from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Whatever it is, a lefty would be great but the O’s are not going to give up Gausman or Bundy.
Felder gives his opinion on this ray Rice issue. Felder says that he “thought it would be more, especially with the evidence that they have and Goodell’s hard stance on discipline.” Although eventually Baltimore will forgive Rice, he is doing everything else right including staying out of the media, going to counseling and making public statements with his wife. When thinking about a man, especially a football player hitting a woman and getting suspended only two games, Goodell seems to go a little harder when it is player versus player. Rules are getting more disciplined on hitting in football and if you break them, players are getting suspended more than just a couple of games. Something to think about.
Finally after weeks of waiting and antsy fans, the word comes out that Ray Rice is suspended for two games. Just TWO GAMES. All of the NFL analysts have been thinking that he would be suspended for four games. Rice and the Ravens are pretty lucky.

Still no sign of what will happen with Ray Rice. Of course Rice will miss a couple games, everyone is just antsy with how many specifically. It’s been a few weeks now, so why the wait? Rice has maintained a low profile through all this. Seems like the number of games that Rice will miss is four.
After the homerun derby, there was not a huge change in the second half of the season, especially not for Adam Jones who has been shining for the Orioles recently. Machado is also getting back in the swing of things again. Davis is not the hitter who he was last year but when the O’s need him, he seems to come through. Unlike the Tampa Bay Rays who had less than 9% to make it to the post season, the Orioles have a 61% chance, that is pretty high for the O’s.
Of course, the Angels’ surge this season has featured iconic young talent, Mike Trout.
“I’d compare him more to Willie Mays,” said Spencer. “He played every inning like it mattered, and that’s how Trout plays. Even more than unbelievable talent, it’s his attitude and demeanor that makes him unbelievable.”
“I think the Ravens will definitely contend for a wild card spot in the AFC, but I don’t think the team is good enough to win the division,” said Kostos. “I know the Cincinnati Bengals made an impression last year, but I actually think the Steelers are winning the division.”
“I think the Steelers are flat out better than Baltimore, and I think the Bengals are slightly better as well,” Kostos claimed. “That leaves the Ravens on the outside looking in.”
Staying within the AL East, Neyer pointed out the glaring gap in the Orioles’ roster—one that many speculate they might trade for to find a solution.
“The Orioles are like every other team in the division–they’re flawed. Not fatally, because of the division they’re in, but they need an ace [pitcher] badly.”
