The Orioles made a one-year offer to Erik Bedard and later came back with a revision that put them in line with the Mariners' reported proposal, but the left-hander apparently prefers to stay in Seattle. Speculated reasons among industry types include a bigger ballpark, competing in the AL West and pitching for a team with a better chance to contend in 2010. Advantage: Seattle. -zk

Wayne Campbell: So, do you come to Milwaukee often?
Alice Cooper: Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century.

Alice Cooper: Yes, Pete, it is. In fact , it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "Open Thread."
Wayne Campbell: I was not aware of that.
