O's the club on 30 Clubs in 30 Days tomorrow night, 3/6!


Recommended Posts

I was flipping around online and noticed that tomorrow night's segment of "30 Clubs in 30 Days" on MLB Network will be the O's!

Looking forward to seeing it, even though it will not be a whole show, but interwoven with the "MLB Tonight" show.

Actually they're doing this with every team this year. All the 30 for 30's are interwoven with MLB tonight.

That's what I've noticed, too. While it sucks to not have a full episode for each team, I guess there is only so much you can go over for a team and the hour long episodes in the previous seasons may have been a little too long for some clubs.

Pretty cool. Billy Ripken picked us for first in the AL East (he couldn't be biased somehow could he?), but Al Leiter had us "contending for a playoff spot, over .500" and Sean Casey said we'd be second in the AL East and win a wildcard. All the hosts scoffed at the BP projection of 76 wins.

Sean Casey has some great things to say about the attitudes of the players buying into Buck's assertions that they are a winning ballclub. Nice interviews with Machado and Chris Davis too.

I think they are all seeing the problems with the Yankees and Boston and the fact Tampa doesnt hit. Toronto has to prove they are a complete team. Why cant we compete for a wildcard once more?

Absolutely we can, and probably will. There is no clear favorite and any of the five teams could take the title.

For those that missed it (like me...) thankfully MLB.com put what I assume is most of the content up in their video section.

These three national media members (Billy Ripken, Al Leiter and Sean Casey, all ex-players) all love the O's. It seems like the jocks love the O's and the nerds (minus The Baseball Tonight nerds who love Buck) hate the O's. interesting. Hopefully the jocks are right. Here's the clip:

I saw this last night. Billy was surprisingly optimistic (when he's usually pretty cautious in his observations of his old team, kinda like Cal was during the ALDS last year). He actually picked the O's to win the division. Sean Casey is always looking for votes to maintain his Mayor of MLB status, so he's usually pretty complimentary of the team he's visiting. He's definitely a glass-half-full kinda guy.

Al Leiter wanted to be a wet blanket so badly, but didn't want to be the only one. He gave a pretty non-descript prediction that we'd be "back in the hunt", but you could tell it was half-hearted. I think he's as skeptical of our rotation as anyone else.

Still though, it was more positive than previous years.
