The Ravens face off against the Patriots today at 1 p.m. and thus there isn't much Orioles talk going on in the local media. I know not everyone on here is a Ravens fan, but duck and I are, so deal with it. Let's Go Ravens! If you do feel the need for some baseball news, here you go:

Ken Burns to update baseball film - Brattleboro Reformer
Originally broken into nine segments (one for each inning in a baseball game), Burns said he will update the film with "The Tenth Inning," focusing on the player strike in 1994, the New York Yankees dynasty and the team's new stadium, the role of the game following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the revival of the Boston Red Sox and the emergence of Latin American and Asian players in the major leagues. Just wha we need. More attention paid to the Yankees and Red Sox. -zk
