The Scott Garceau Show With Jeremy Conn
Scott asked for a “letter grade” from last nights game. The first half, Kubatko gave the Birds a strong C+. They only had one quality start in the past couple games. The O’s are starting to look like a last place team, Kubatko said, if that is the case then he would give the O’s a solid A-. It is time for the Orioles to step up their game a little bit.
Although Justice described the outcome of Machado’s suspension as “fair,” he also stood firm on Machado reaching his full potential in the majors.
“There were periods last year where [Manny] was one of the best five players in baseball. We have to keep in mind that he’s 22 years old.”
“I think we’ve turned the corner on effort, we’ve turned the corner on enthusiasm, and this was the best game that we had execution wise all year.”
The Bayhawks have been more aggressively offensively of late, recording their fourth straight game of at least 50 shots on goal.
Barring any rain outs the Orioles will play game 81 of the 2014 season Sunday afternoon when they close out this 4-game series with the Rays.
“This is going to be the most chaotic draft that we’ve seen in a really long time.” Bill said.” If almost any team trades up, and that’s very possible today, I think the Cavs are looking to move down in the draft, it will be Andrew Wiggins, he is the consensus number one pick, the most talented guy now that Joel Embiid is obviously a medical question mark.
Now to Bud Norris who is going to the DL. Norris is not ready to start Friday but he should be coming back July 7th. Scott and Jeremy talk about the pitchers that are lined up from Friday until Monday, but what are the Orioles going to do Tuesday? Of course, Tuesday is still a couple days a way, pitchers are not announced yet for Tuesday.
Terps football “The big thing is they’ve got to win the state of Maryland, and they’ve got to win the DC area in recruiting.” Said Felder, who focuses on college football, on what the Maryland Terrapins need to do to compete in the Big Ten conference.
Scott asked Michael to give his thoughts on the AFC North. He believes that the division is up for grabs. “This is the season of unbridled offense, every team got better. When you tell every teams fan base that they didn’t get as better at the same rate as the teams around them, well you don’t want to do that. So I think the AFC North is just wide open.
Kentucky Power Forward Joel Embiid looked like the top pick in the draft until a recent stress fracture caused his stock to drop in the draft. Scott asked Drew how this changes the Cleveland Cavaliers draft plans for tomorrow night. “It looked like everything was set before Joel Embiid got the stress fracture in his foot. It looked like Embiid was going to go first, with Jabari Parker going second and Andrew Wiggins going to go third. So now it puts Cleveland in an interesting situation.”
Lebron James has a few teams in mind but according to Thomas he does not see Thomas leaving Miami. Lebron actually cares about his image.
If he leaves Miami, that city along with Cleveland will probably turn their backs on Lebron. Lebron is the best in the game right now.
Duquette says “that the favorite in the American League east is probably the Orioles, the Orioles are the most well rounded of all the teams.”
Could Lebron and Carmelo Anthony team up for the next couple years? Who knows! New York was one of Lebrons destination spots when he was on Cleveland. He was really close to going up north. Because of Lebron, there have been four finals and two championships because of him.
