On this week’s edition of The Strike Zone podcast, host Ted Keith is joined by former Orioles star Jim Palmer. Palmer talks about Buck Showalter and the current state of the Orioles, if Showalter reminds him of Earl Weaver, what the Baltimore can do to help their pitching rotation, which hitters in the Orioles lineup today would scare him most, if pitchers and hitters are bothered more easily by HBPs these days, whether or not he actually hit a batter with a pitch, who he hangs out with on Hall Of Fame weekends, his new book Nine Innings To Success and much more.
