Taking a break from their usual routine, host Greg Swatek, sports editor Josh Smith and features editor Colin McGuire welcome a special guest, CBS Sports NFL insider — and hard-core Baltimore Orioles fan — Jason La Canfora.
With the hectic NFL draft season finally behind him, La Canfora has plenty of time to devote to following the Birds, though there’s not much to cheer lately. La Canfora talks about what he’d do if he were the team’s general manager. Who should replace Dan Duquette? What does the future hold for Buck Showalter within the organization? Is La Canfora interested in making an offer on the mansion Cal Ripken is selling?
As for the draft season, what is it like for La Canfora to cover an event that’s become so wildly popular even though selecting football players is such an inexact science? Will Baker Mayfield be the right fit in Cleveland? How soon will Ravens fans see Lamar Jackson on the field in the regular season? Is there really that much inner turmoil among the New England Patriots? Does a reporter like him get an offseason?
Plus, Jason talks about how, in his career, he has been blessed to work with so many inspirational examples.
