The Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery stopped at Pappas Restaurant in Cockeysville, which got Orioles Hall of Famer Mike Bordick in the mood to discuss modern baseball with Nestor. An instant classic!

Locally born and bred drummer Steve Gorman (on right in Orioles orinthologically correct hat) will take over the story from there in the aftermath of his best-selling book on the history of the notoriously infamous Black Crowes and life with The Brothers Robinson.
We lost the legendary Tommy Lasorda on Friday. Back in 2002, the Dodgers Hall of Famer joined Nestor here in Baltimore to talk about the changing state of baseball after chicks dug the long ball and the sport was drowning in PEDs.
