    Orioles America w/ Geoff Pontes

    Orioles America w/ Geoff Pontes

    Zach, Nick, and Bob talk to Baseball America's Geoff Pontes about the Orioles farm system after O's prospects found themselves filling up BA's top 100 list. They talk about what makes number one prospect in baseball Gunnar Henderson so special, why Jackson Holliday could be right behind him, and the state of the organization as a whole. After that, the hosts dissect the first trade under the Mike Elias regime that saw them trading away a prospect for major league talent and what that means for the 2023 season.

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.
