Since mustard couldn't catch up

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.

How's that for a tease?

Dadada, dadada.

Anyway, I hope to have more later.

I was never a huge Reynolds fan, mostly because he seemed to state the obvious all the time.

"Well, Peter, I believe the only way the Orioles are going to win tonight is if they score more runs."

But he did improve a little each year, which is to be expected, I suppose.

"Nasty" Nestor Aparicio will be behind the microphone at WNST tomorrow, beginning at 6 a.m, with a major announcement concerning his attempts to organize a protest by Orioles fans at Camden Yards.
