    2023 Baseball America Top 10 Orioles Prospects w/ Jon Meoli

    2023 Baseball America Top 10 Orioles Prospects w/ Jon Meoli

    Zach, Nick, and Bob bring back 'Maximizing Playoff Odds' Jon Meoli once again to go over the updated top 10 list of Baltimore Orioles prospects he wrote up for Baseball America. The farm system continues to be one of the league's best with award-caliber upsides at the top and first-division regular depth throughout the top 10 with another handful outside of it that could easily be argued should be included. It's the perfect listen for those looking to get excited as we wait for the team to "lift off" at the winter meetings.

    A Look At the Majors - Hitters

    A Look At the Majors - Hitters

    Zach, Nick, and Bob complete their look back of the major league season and look ahead to try and determine how the Orioles will set their roster on the position player side for the 2023 season. The only position in cement is Adley Rutschman behind the plate, meanwhile the infield and outfield are fairly amorphous. After that they discuss the addition of offensive strategist Cody Asche to the major league coaching staff.

Great for a Baseball Fan

I came across this pod at the recommendation of several friends. Although I live near Baltimore I am not an Orioles fan and I rarely listen to sports podcasts. I can honestly say this pod has earned their spot in my regular rotation. The guys always find an interesting angle to review the Os minor league system be it from the angle of a broadcaster, a coach, a player, or even a member of the front office. I probably go to about 30 minor baseball games a year and this is always my listen of choice going to and from a game. These guys absolutely deserve their subscribers and I look forward to watching their podcast explode even more over the next couple of years.

Love Os Content

There’s not a ton of places to get Orioles content. I’m really happy you guys do this, particularly the minor league focus. I hope this team keeps getting better and better so you get more and more content!

HonestAbe2022 ,

Very Good Vibes!

These guys do their homework and it shows. Well done.
