Greg Abel joins Nestor to discuss communications, sports, fans and the future of Orioles baseball in Baltimore

It's been 18 years since local communication and public relations guru Greg Abel created the "We're Not Gonna Take It" video after Nestor Aparicio led "Free The Birds" to communicate some uncomfortable truths to Peter Angelos. That was September 2006. Now, with David Rubenstein taking over the helm of the Orioles franchise, what do we expect to be better for the fans – other than everything?

We survived the Angelos Era of Orioles baseball so what’s next?

Allen McCallum and Nestor Aparicio were seated next to each other in visiting press boxes for the iconic Roberto Alomar ALDS home run in Cleveland and the Jeffrey Maier debacle in New York almost 30 years ago. They covered the team every day at the dawn of WNST until they were no longer allowed access. Now almost three decades later, they discuss the future of the Baltimore Orioles with new ownership of David Rubenstein and general manager Mike Elias fielding the best crop of players of our lifetime at Camden Yards.
