If the Orioles play a baseball game in Texas and nobody sees it, does it make a sound?

Only if you tune into the radio broadcast.

The game isn't being televised tonight because of a scheduling conflict with the Wizards, who are trying to close out their NBA playoff series against the Cavaliers. It was supposed to be shown on ComcastSportsnet, and then CN8, but ended up nowhere.

Add a few more rookies to this team, and maybe the Disney Channel will start broadcasting the games.

Last I heard, it was 1-1 in the sixth after Jay Gibbons homered. One inning ended with Jeff Conine being thrown out trying to steal home. Should I assume it was a botched suicide squeeze?

Meanwhile, did you hear about the prank the Mariners pulled on former Orioles manager Mike Hargrove before Monday's game?

Because of the nationwide immigration boycott, most of the Hispanic players walked into Hargrove's office at the Metrodome and said they woudn't be able to play.

According to the Seattle Times, reliever Eddie Guardado, whose father is a Mexican immigrant who participated in the boycott in Stockton Cal., did most of the talking, and eventually gave away the joke because he no longer could hold back the laughter.

"(Hargrove) bought it," third baseman Adrian Beltre told reporters. "He said three times, 'Are you serious?'"

"He was getting red," Guardado added, "like he was ready to pop a fuse."

That would have been more dangerous if Hargrove hadn't lost about 40 pounds over the winter. His wife, Sharon, put him on a strict diet - nothing white, including rice, potatos and sugar - and hired a personal trainer.
