Love Locked Out (Ep. 85)

Baseball is on pause, and we are sour about it!

Join Tyler, Jesse, and Eli for a weekly chat about the Baltimore Orioles and Major League Baseball. The trio discusses baseball with a fan's perspective and an analytic slant.
Episode details

It’s a lockout! Baseball (for the most part) is on hold until MLB and the team owners settle on just how greedy they want to be. As of this writing, that turns out to be really, really greedy. So, no moves can be made related to team’s 40-man rosters, and there is no end in sight.

Prior to the lockout, the Orioles actually did a bit of business on the major league side of things. They signed Rougned Odor, and they agreed to terms with Jordan Lyles. Neither of those guys is particularly good, but they are capable of holding onto a big league job for an entire season. Progress?

Other news that occurred while we were away were the 40-man roster additions of D.L. Hall, Kyle Bradish, Terrin Vavra, Felix Bautista, and Logan Gillaspie. The first three were expected while the last two were a tad surprising, but worrying too much about the fringes of the 40-man roster is enough to drive a person insane, so don’t ruminate too long.

The guys are back for another episode in which they discuss all of the above plus a few other odds and ends surrounding the O’s. If you like what you hear, consider subscribing on your podcast website of choice, or right here on Substack.

You can also head over to YouTube where each podcast is posted as well. We would love to expand our reach over there in the upcoming season, but we will need your support in order to do so.

This is likely our final episode of the year. As such, we wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a safe and happy holiday season. We will see you in 2022. This is definitely going to be the Orioles’ year!
