The Sun doesn't know the difference between Jeffrey Hammonds and Damon Buford

+

Nice to see that cutting 60% of your staff in 10 years does nothing to hurt the quality of your work. Seriously, guys? EDIT: I'm willing to bet that the photo comes from this game. June 25 vs. the Yankees, Damon scores the winning run in the bottom of the 10th on a walkoff walk. That took me about two minutes to find on B-R.

"Tribune's tactics are deplorable," said Cet Parks, Executive Director of the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild. "Employees who poured their hearts and souls into putting out a great newspaper every day were told to get out and stay out. No fanfare, no thank you, no outplacement help, just hit the streets. Maybe that's big business Tribune way, but it isn't right. Through its actions Tribune has demonstrated that it has little regard or respect for its employees."

And the Orioles are not the Rays. They need to continue to acquire and develop young talent, but they also figure to spend some of that long-anticipated MASN money to upgrade the team's star power over the next couple of years. When the season started, it didn't really matter how many games the Orioles would win this year. Now, with the club rumored to be interested in free-agent slugger Mark Teixeira, it matters a lot more. The amazing success of the Rays only shows what is possible. It doesn't necessarily mean the Orioles have to take the same path and pull the plug on this year's team.

Peter Schmuck, on the ball as always -- you mean the Rays are GOOD? Wow!

Mariners general manager Bill Bavasi told a Seattle newspaper that he wasn't disappointed in Bedard yet but ... "He cannot seem to get his feet on the ground in Seattle. He cannot get his arms around it yet. You see a brilliant outing, and then you see an awful outing. Right now, I wish his wheels didn't come off so easily."

As they mounted another rally in the 10th inning, the pitcher's spot was approaching. But closer George Sherrill wouldn't have batted. Manager Dave Trembley was getting Steve Trachsel and Adam Loewen ready in the indoor cage. He wanted experience in that situation, and Trachsel has done plenty of hitting in the National League. Loewen, meanwhile, would have been drafted as a hitter by some other organizations if the Orioles hadn't taken him with the fourth pick in 2002.

I think we’ll be OK. That’s why we stretched Aquino out. Aquino was in a situation where he had to go. He had to give us as much as we possibility could out of him. I think we’ll be OK tomorrow. Johnson will be available tomorrow. We can bring Sarfate back. I’d stay away from Aquino. Bierd’s probably all right for an inning, and the other guys at the end will be fine – Walker, Bradford, Sherrill. But obviously you can’t afford to have these kinds of games often because, we’ve said that repeatedly, it takes its toll on your bullpen. You need to have your starting pitchers get you to a certain point and place in the game where you’re not overusing that bullpen. This is one game and that’s the way it goes and we’ll be ready tomorrow.

Moore to get spot starts all over the place

Roch reports that Scott Moore will start at third tomorrow. There's also some jive about Luke Scott and his notebook. But here's the interesting quote: Moore, who has two at-bats in six games, is...
