I'm a little late responding to Sun columnist Rick Maese's blog entry about mustard needing to be replaced in the hot dog races at Camden Yards. He suggested sauerkraut or chopped onions - a typical fan playing general manager.
Well, I'm happy to report that the Orioles made a trade today as the non-waiver deadline approaches. Relying on their advanced international scouting, they acquired salsa for Bruce Chen and a condiment to be named later.
Miguel Tejada was rumored to be involved in these talks, of course. But I'll say it again: He's not going anywhere.
A reader asked whatever happened to former Orioles pitcher Ben McDonald. He retired a long time ago, and I assume that he's wrestling alligators in Louisiana and failing to live up to his potential.
I wish that I could provide more information on the Harold Reynolds firing at ESPN. I contacted someone who knows him very well, and she told me that she was 85 percent certain of the reason. But it would be irresponsible for me to post it.
