...the Orioles' game tonight against the Boston Red Sox will be shown on CN8? No lie. I know that doesn't help everyone, but at least some of you will benefit from it.

...that running back Ricky Williams, suspended for a year after another violation of the NFL's drug policy, says he wants to play football for the Toronto Argonauts.? My guess is somebody suggested "Canada" and Williams thought he heard "Cannabis."

...that Oakland catcher Jason Kendall has been suspended for four games and fined an undisclosed amount after charging the mound during Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Angels? Angels pitcher John Lackey also was fined for "inappropriate actions and comments" that helped to incite the incident. My guess is he recited Kendall's stats since joining the A's.

...that future Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux, who won his first five decisions this year, is 1-9 lifetime against Arizona?

...that the Phoenix Suns had three projected starters - Amare Stoudemire, Kurt Thomas and Raja Bell - in street clothes for last night's dramatic Game 6 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Lakers? And none of them like Kobe Bryant.

...that the Arizona Cardinals are expected to sell out every home game this season? That's newsworthy considering they haven't had a home game on local television, because of the league's blackout rule, since September 2000.

...that, according to the Boston Globe's Gordon Edes, the right side of the Kansas City Royals' infield contains more letters than any other in major league history? The surnames of first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz and second baseman Mark Grudzielanek combine for 24 letters.

The old record was 22. If anyone can name the two players without cheating, I'll reserve space and arrange first-class airfare for Luis Lopez's next fantasy camp.
