"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.

"I think we were 30th out of 30 in the preseason power rankings," said Millar. "...I'm sure you all jumped on the Detroit Tigers early. The game of baseball is fun. You all have favorites, but when the light comes on, you play the game on the field." Since Millar was all worked up, it seemed like a good time to ask him where the Orioles should be in the power rankings now. "Twenty-ninth," he said. "I think we had to move up one, right?

It wasn't until today that I realized the Orioles stopped playing the Orioles Magic song when taking the field after Opening Day. And they haven't lost since eliminating it. Players hated it because they didn't think it fired up the crowd or the team - they were making fun of it in spring training - but the song was blaring in the clubhouse today after the Orioles scored three runs in the ninth to win, 3-2. Kevin Millar cranked it up on an iPod while eating his post-game meal. He waited until the media was allowed inside. And then the fun really began. Millar began clapping his hands to it, keeping the beat to a song that used to be ridiculed, and teammates joined it. At one point, Millar, Jeremy Guthrie, George Sherrill and Brian Burres were slamming their hands on the table in unison. They enjoyed it so much, they played it twice. If you hadn't noticed, they now take the field to Saliva's "Click Click Boom."
