Craig Kimbrel is an Oriole | Ep. 119

12/7/2023
The Orioles got active at the Winter Meetings, signing reliever Craig Kimbrel to a one-year deal with an option for 2025 worth up to $25 million overall. It fills one of the team's needs but may not be as splashy of an addition as fans had hoped. Tyler digs into the deal, explains why the Orioles opted for Kimbrel over other options, and recaps the O's actions at the Winter Meetings in totality.

Recapping the 2023 Orioles (Ep. 116)

11/6/2023
Time can help provide perspective. It can also be used as an excuse for not recording an episode in about a month. I’ll let you guess as to which is the reason for the delay in getting you a pod recapping the 2023 Orioles. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Orioles play a baseball game. They were most recently being swept by the now-World Series champion Texas Rangers. Does it make it sting a little less than the Rangers went on to win the whole thing? Maybe, maybe not. We can all admit at this point that the 2023 Orioles were a team with flaws. Those flaws were exposed by the Rangers. But make no mistake that this was a very, very good team. Winning 101 games is no accident, and even if future Orioles teams go farther in the postseason it’s entirely possible than none of them match this year’s team in terms of regular season performance. They were special. Kyle Bradish emerged as a Cy Young candidate. Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson appear plenty capable of carrying the offense for the forseeable future. The farm system remains overflowing with talent. Things are going well in Birdland! Everything except for maybe the owner being a repugnant jerk, but that is from an Orioles-specific problem. On this episode we dig into the highs and lows of a magical season, and we compare reality to our preseason predictions.

ALDS Game 3 Recap (Ep. 115)

10/11/2023
Welp, that was (not so) fun while it lasted. Another poor pitching performance sunk the Orioles’ chances in Game 3 of the ALDS, culminating with a sweep-clinching 7-1 loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. Of course, it’s not all on Dean Kremer’s shoulders. The offense had a bad night too, and you can also look at manager Brandon Hyde for being less aggressive with his pitching moves than he himself said he planned to be coming into the game. It was a nightmarish evening that concluded a brutal series for these Orioles. Despite such a special summer it leaves all of us with a rather bitter taste in our mouth. It may take some time, but eventually that will dissipate and we will remember how much fun we had with these guys for six months. Eli is on this episode to give you his perspective on the loss as well as reflection on the series as a whole. While the positives were few and far between, there were still some nice things to consider and give you hope for the immediate future of the Baltimore Orioles.

ALDS Game 2 Recap (Ep. 114)

10/10/2023
It’s a tough road from here. The Orioles head to Texas down 2-0 in a best-of-five ALDS in which they have no room for error. Not many teams have faced a similar challenge and succeeded. There were plenty of negatives to take away from the Game 2 loss, most of them on the mound. Grayson Rodriguez struggled, leaning almost entirely on a fastball that wasn’t missing bats. Later, Bryan Baker loaded the bases and then Jacob Webb unloaded them. The Rangers scored a whopping nine runs in the game’s first three innings, and it felt like it was all over. Credit the Baltimore bats for fighting back to the degree that they did. Gunnar Henderson homered and had a nice day at the plate. Aaron Hicks drove in five, including a three-run bomb in the bottom of the ninth inning. Altogether it was a nice showing from the offense. Unfortunately, the pitching just wasn’t up to the task. Now the series moves to Texas, where the O’s room for error has entirely evaporated. They can’t simply play well, they must be perfect and do what they can to win two in a row and force a decisive Game 5 back at Camden Yards. Tyler reacts to all of the drudgery in the Game 2 loss and preps for Game 3 in this special postseason episode.

ALDS Game 1 Recap (Ep. 113)

10/8/2023
The Orioles postseason got off to a rocky start with a 3-2 loss to the Rangers in game one of the ALDS. Kyle Bradish and the pitching staff turned in a solid day, but the offense was largely silent outside of Anthony Santander. It’s tough to complain about the way in which the O’s hurlers held the potent Texas offense to only three runs. Most times out that is going to get the job done. They just didn’t get enough support from the Orioles lineup. Santander scored both of the team’s runs and had two of their five hits. It’s tough to win a baseball game all by yourself, and that was demonstrated here. There wasn’t enough table setting in front of him, while the back half of the lineup was completely impotent. A pair of double plays also killed rally opportunities. Austin Hays grounded into a double play in the fifth, and then Santander did the same in the eighth. The final nail came in the ninth inning, when Gunnar Henderson was thrown out at second trying to steal after opening the frame with a single. On this special mini episode Tyler reviews all of the game one question and previews some keys to game two. This is something we will do after every game in the Orioles postseason run.

Post-season Preview! (Ep. 112)

10/4/2023
What a regular season this team played! AL East champions. 101 wins. This was “supposed” to be a fall-back-to-earth kind of year after the impressive campaign they had in 2022. Instead, they flipped the whole storyline on its head. Now, they might just win the whole darn thing! There are still some things to sort out. The Wild Card round needs to play out. The O’s will then to figure out their roster. And then the schedulers have to work around an inconveniently-time Billy Joel concert. All of this equally important, of course. We get into all of it on this week’s podcast. We also look back on the emotions that came with the team finally clinching the AL East title, and reflect on the Tommy John surgery coming for Félix Bautista. And of course we discuss the life and career of Brooks Robinson, perhaps the most special sports icon in Baltimore history.

The Orioles are headed to the playoffs (Ep. 111)

9/18/2023
It has been a long road back for the Baltimore Orioles, their players, and their fan base. They have endured some absolutely brutal stretches of baseball, becoming the butt of every easy joke around baseball in the process. To be fair, some of the was deserved! It was the direct result of decisions made by high-ranking people within the organization to tear everything down to the studs and rebuild. That leads to some ugliness. But right about now it feels worth it because the Orioles are headed back to the postseason for the first time since 2016. As of this writing the O’s are now two games up in the AL East, have the tiebreaker over the second-place Rays, and 13 games left on the schedule. While their spot in the playoffs is secured, their seeding is anything but. They can’t cool their jets just yet if they want to win the East and the first-round bye that comes with it. On this week’s episode the guys chat about that, look forward to some playoff roster decisions to be made, and celebrate the accomplishments of the Orioles young roster.

Your AL East-Leading Baltimore Orioles (Ep. 110)

7/25/2023
The American League is officially on notice. While the Orioles have been competitive all summer long, they took it to the next level this past weekend. By taking three out of four from the Rays, the O’s vaulted to the top of both the AL East and the junior circuit at large. There is something special brewing in Birdland. Gunnar Henderson had himself an impactful series that included a hustle triple, a massive home run, and defensive highlights all over the diamond. All of the sudden he feels like a favorite for AL Rookie of the Year. Félix Bautista is vying for his own award, potentially bypassing relief-specific accolades altogether in pursuit of the ultimate pitching prize. It makes sense that the best closer in the league would under consideration for Cy Young. If the Mountain stays on his current trajectory he will earn more than a few down-ballot votes. And what’s even scarier about these Orioles is that they might be getting even better. The trade deadline looms, and the front office has already made a minor addition in reliever Shintaro Fujinami. Recent reports indicate that they have asked the Angels about Shohei Ohtani, although ESPN’s Buster Olney says that the Mike Elias-led group is viewed as “measured buyers” rather than pushing all of their chips in. This week’s episode will cover all of the news, and then wrap up with an in-depth discussion of the upcoming deadline. What will the Orioles do? What should they do? And who, specifically, do we have our eyes on? If you like what you hear, consider subscribing here on Substack, or on Spotify and your preferred podcast platform.

O's cruise into All-Star break (Ep. 109)

7/12/2023
The unofficial halfway point of the 2023 season is here, and our Orioles are in good shape. An uneven period from late June through early July gave way to a five-game winning streak ahead of the All-Star break. That puts the Orioles just two games back of the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays, their smallest deficit in the division since April 4. They’ve got a chance, folks! Also making headlines in recent weeks are the team’s promotions of Jordan Westburg and Colton Cowser in quick succession. Both of them have been immediately placed into the everyday lineup, and the early returns are good. This offense has plenty of room to grow, and the possibility of more promotions later in the season looms. As good as the team has been, holes remain. If the front office is serious about a playoff push in 2023 moves will need to be made, particularly on the pitching side of things. At the moment, there don’e appear to be a ton of difference makers available for trade, but that could change dramatically in the next two weeks as teams decide if they are in or out of the playoff picture. The trio is back this week to discuss all of that and more on the latest episode of The Warehouse Podcast.

Who's leading off for the Orioles? (Ep. 108)

6/13/2023
Somehow, someway the Orioles continue trucking along. Cedric Mullins remains sidelined, but the Birds have been able to make do. Aaron Hicks has regained his form from many years ago, Gunnar Henderson may be breaking out, and the team’s best form could yet be ahead of it. The Mullins absence has sent Brandon Hyde searching for his replacement atop the daily lineup. For a while, Adam Frazier seemed to be the top choice, but with his numbers slipping other options emerged. Austin Hays was given a shot, and most recently it has been Henderson that’s given it a go. Hyde is yet to settle on one name over another, and he may not have to. But there are scenarios where Adley Rutschman might make sense in that spot, or even Hicks if he keeps getting on base the way he has since joining the Birds. Hopefully all of this is just temporary and Mullins makes his way back soon. He remains the best possible choice, and allows the likes of Henderson, Hays and others to slide down into run-producing roles, where they best fit. On this week’s episode, it’s just the Ginsburg brothers. They discuss lineup options plus Hicks’ instant success, the promotion push from Norfolk, and potential all-stars.

Good Wins, Bad Injury News (Ep. 107)

5/31/2023
Injuries are a perennial variable that every team attempts to plan for, but it is ultimately impossible to fully safeguard against. The Orioles are intimately familiar with that right now. As the team continues to exceed expectations, they now have to wrangle with some high profile bumps and bruises. By far the most important injury has happened to centerfielder Cedric Mullins. Arguably the team’s most important player, Mullins exited a game over the weekend with a quad injury. Thankfully, it does not appear to be too serious, but the star outfielder will still be sidelined for several weeks at least. Elsewhere, the pitching crunch is real. In the same week that rookie Grayson Rodriguez was demoted for poor play, the O’s also found out that two veterans they were depending on for return later this summer could still be a ways away. John Means, the potential ace of this thin starting staff, suffered a setback in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The setback was in his back, not his surgically-repaired elbow. That’s good news, but it will still push his return beyond the originally anticipated July window. In the bullpen, the O’s will be without Dillon Tate for a bit longer as he had a stress reaction during his own rehab from an off-season injury. The Orioles reliever group is doing just fine in its current state, but Tate would nonetheless boost a back-end crew that has started to see a few cracks in recent weeks. The trade deadline is still two months away, but it is becoming ecident that Mike Elias and the team’s front office will need to bolster the roster in some significant way if they wish to buoy the playoff chances of this still-surging ball club. The guys chat about all of this and more on the latest episode, plus some discussion of the City Connect jerseys, the addition of Aaron Hicks, and why G-Rod’s demotion was or was not deserved.

Beating good teams! (Ep. 106)

5/17/2023
May is halfway over, and the Orioles remain atop the AL Wild Card standings. Things have changed. The competition has gotten stiffer. And the O’s rate of wins has slowed. But they are still winning more than they are losing, and there are signs of progress throughout the roster. Dean Kremer is pitching better. Gunnar Henderson is hitting the ball harder. Tyler Wells is carrying the rotation. And the bullpen remains amazing! At the same time, there are also some issues. Grayson Rodriguez has had rookie growing pains. Jorge Mateo looks like his 2022 self at the plate again. And no one in the AL East looks like dropping out of this race any time soon. All in all, these are happy times in Birdland! The team’s hot start has bought them some cushion for the remainder of the season. To this point, they haven’t really needed it, but it’s nice to have. On this week’s episode, we talk about everything mentioned above plus Cedric Mullins’ cycle, no days off from the team’s core, and how Ramón Urías’ injury impacts the lineup.

The Orioles might actually be good! (Ep. 105)

5/2/2023
One month of the 2023 season is in the books, and these Orioles continue to be a lot of fun to watch night in and night out. Sure, the schedule they have played thus far has not exactly been a gauntlet of contenders. But you can only play the schedule in front of you, and the O’s have conquered the weary foes that have dared take them on. It’s not all perfect, of course. The starting pitching isn’t good. In fact, it has been downright bad in recent weeks. Thankfully, Grayson Rodriguez is improving with every start, and Tyler Wells is having himself another impressive first half. Reinforcements will be needed. The internal options are lacking, and that includes the eventual return of John Means from Tommy John surgery. Means has been great in an Orioles uniform, but depending on someone that has been on the shelf for an entire year is a dicey proposition. But now isn’t the time to dwell on the negative. The reality is that these Orioles are 10 games over .500, which buys them a decent amount of wiggle room for the remainder of the season. You might not clinch a playoff spot in April, but you sure can lose one. At the very least, the O’s have set themselves up to be competitive in the months ahead. On this week’s show, the guys chat through the good and the bad, the Joey Ortiz debut (and swift demotion), the Yennier Cano phenomenon, and the Jorge Mateo evolution.

A mixed bag of early results for the Orioles (Ep. 104)

4/18/2023
Nearly three weeks of the 2023 season are in the books, and this year’s version of the Baltimore Orioles looks…good? The starting pitching has been (as expected!) a problem, both because of an unfortunate injury to Kyle Bradish and some poor performances from just about everyone not named Kyle Gibson. And the defense has left a lot to be desired. But what cannot be denied is the torrid start to the year for the Baltimore bats. Jorge Mateo is leading a resurgent Orioles offense with plenty of help from all-world catcher Adley Rutschman. Meanwhile, Ryan Mountcastle has rediscovered his home run trot and Cedric Mullins has worked out some early-season struggles to become the table setter they needed. And don’t forget Austin Hays, who is just casually boasting an OPS over 1.000. There is still work to be done, of course. Anthony Santander and Gunnar Henderson are both striking out a whole bunch with less power than expected. But once either one of them gets going, this could be the deepest lineup in the game. You may have expected them to be better than they were in 2022, but the amount of production so far has been impressive. On top of that, the O’s bullpen once again looks like a weapon. Félix Bautista might be the best closer in baseball, Danny Coulombe and his slider are twisting hitters in knots, and Bryan Baker has brought his attitude to the mound. It’s only been 16 games as of this writing, but the Orioles are on a 90+ win pace, and it sure feels like there is room to improve. The guys get into all of it on this week’s episode, plus a review of the rookies, a heated discussion of the water-themed celebrations, and Eli’s upcoming work trip.

Orioles 2023 Season Preview (Ep. 103)

3/28/2023
Ah, the joy of recording a podcast slightly early and then seeing news come down that entirely contradicts a chunk of the topics covered. So is the life of a sports podcast just days away from the beginning of baseball season. Hopefully you still enjoy these 90+ minutes full of roster analysis, season predictions, and rosy ambition. Think of this as the most mundane time machine you could imagine that is only capable of transporting you to last week, when it seemed like Grayson Rodriguez was guaranteed an Opening Day roster spot and you had no idea Danny Coulombe existed. Simpler times indeed. You can rest assured that some of the content in this episode is still relevant to the present day. There are discussions about the Orioles fascination with a backup first baseman, what the plan is with Gunnar Henderson, and how they will manage a bullpen with crucial injuries to begin the year. Plus, we make predictions that are sure to go wrong. That’s always fun to bottle up and throw back in our face months later.

Orioles Offseason In Review 2022-23 (Ep. 102)

2/6/2023
Long time no see! Since the winter is drawing to a close, we figured it was time to hop on the mic and digest all of the moves the Orioles made (or didn’t) in our first episode of 2023. In case you missed it, Mike Elias swapped out one trio of veterans for another with the additions of Kyle Gibson, Adam Frazier, and James McCann. He also boosted the bullpen with the return of Mychal Givens. And he even gave the rotation a little love with a trade for Cole Irvin. It was not the dream offseason many of us envisioned. The starting staff remains without an obvious ace, although the promotion of Grayson Rodriguez could result in such an outcome. And the lineup is deeper overall but still feels a bit shallow in the power department. But all in all, the Orioles are better in February of 2023 than they were in October of 2022. For a team that just missed out on a playoff spot by a couple of games, that could be significant. Some other good vibes came from the minors, where the Orioles once again received high marks from all over the industry. 11 different prospects made their way on to various Top 100 lists, and the organization as a whole is viewed as one of the most talent-rich in the sport. Of course it wasn’t all good news. Another development this offseason was a total breakdown in public relations between ownership and the fanbase. John Angelos had a weird press conference, the lease at Camden Yards expires in December, and the MASN case continues on. All of that could be resolved sometime this summer, but it does take away from the warm fuzzies for the time. You can see now why we needed two hours for this episode. We tackled it all.

Recapping the 2022 Baltimore Orioles (Ep. 99)

Unlike the previous four seasons, it was sad to see this Orioles campaign come to an end. September was a tough month, and ultimately they finished a few games out of the playoff picture. But it was the most magical season we’ve seen in these parts in quite some time, and promised a bright future. A crucial offseason is ahead of this organization. Mike Elias has promised “liftoff” and claimed that the Orioles are now “back in the fight” for AL East supremacy. How that manifests in the winter months remains to be seen. But there is plenty of time for that. As October continues on, and we watch the teams that edged out the O’s for a postseason spot, it feels appropriate to reflect on 2022, point out what went well, what could have gone better, and how we feel about the squad before any sort of transactions take place. That is what this week’s episode is all about! Celebrate the good times. Give Brandon Hyde his plaudits. Shout out the unsung heroes. And everything in between!
