Norfolk or New Orleans? Those are the top two choices for the Orioles to relocate their Triple-A affiliate. New Orleans is in the Pacific Coast League, a major strike against the city, but at least it's in the U.S. That's progress.

It has to be Norfolk, doesn't it?

Here's wishing 98 Rock's Mark Ondayko a speedy recovery. And better traction.

Ondayko, part of the morning show crew, apparently tripped early this morning, about 10 minutes before going on the air, and slammed his head into a door frame, opening a gash that required 13 stitches. He was released from Union Memorial Hospital around 9 a.m.

Producer Stephanie Drummond referred to Ondayko as "the Kyle Boller of our show." To which Kirk McEwen replied: "Yeah, but Kyle has 11 guys chasing him."

Good point.

Lonny Baxter's Italian League team, Montepaschi Siena, extended his contract by one season despite the former University of Maryland star being sentenced to two months in jail for firing a gun into the air a few blocks from the White House.
