Welcome to Barbecast 89! We apologize for the lengthy delay since our last Barbecast, but it's great to be back. Before our special guest, we had a tremendous e-mail segment featuring the triumphant return of NAPOLEAN BOOKBINDERY (Note: Napolean last appeared on Episode 40, back in June 2014). Our special guest this week (at 29:00) is Jon Meoli, Orioles beat writer for the Baltimore Sun. After reminiscing about Jon's appearance on Barbecast 3 (!!!!), we asked him a bunch of O's-related questions about what's most surprising about the team's hot start, Dylan Bundy, the incredible Joey Rickard, the less-incredible Matt Wieters, and more. After Jon (at 57:30), another B-Ref Battle brought to you by Baseball-Reference commenced. It was short and sweet. We concluded (at 1:07:10) with an amusing Varsity Baseball Update about Jake's unfortunate relief appearance and a shout-out to my freshman-year roommate for setting a D-III record. Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening <3
Musical guest: Oooo, o, o, o, oooo, o
