Gary Thorne on the Orioles, AL East, and More 4.18.16

Maine native Gary Thorne, currently the voice of the Baltimore Orioles, called into Downtown to give us an in-depth look at this season’s incarnation of the O’s. He talked about Mark Trumbo being a surprise, Manny Machado sometimes getting overlooked among the top tier of players, the tightness of the AL East top-to-bottom, the health of the game itself, and how people will view Rafael Palmiero and other steroid era players over time versus the players who did things the right way. Plus, hear about Gary’s time throwing southpaw BP for the Mets.
