The Scott Garceau Show With Jeremy Conn
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.”
DeAntae Prince talks about the likelihood of Kevin Durant signing with the Wizards, as well as a possible Wiggins and Kevin Love trade.
Some information on the Ravens, Hernandez spoke to the guys mainly about the Smiths, Torrey and Steve. According to Hernandez, “Steve Smith will probably not put up the numbers as he did in Carolina.” Steve will most likely be used to take some attention off of Torrey, don’t rule him out though! Steve Smith will most likely do some nice things this season.
Sergio Garcia has played several tournaments, about 56 and has not won a major. In 1999 Garcia received second place to Tiger in the PGA Championship. He has the game to win. Sabel says that “he is in a good place right now, emotionally, mentally, and physically with his swing.” He is hitting the ball very well.

Would David Price fit well with the Orioles? Looks like the Orioles are kind of interested in him but still are not sure. “Price should be going somewhere,” says Todd. Price is definitely an impact player that a lot of teams could use.
