Playoff fever

I dropped off my daughter at school this morning, watched a line of kids enter the building, and wondered why Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca was tagging each one of them.

Nice baserunning by the Dodgers yesterday. I was waiting for the third base coach to dive headfirst into home and complete the trifecta.


The Yankees might want to postpone today's game, as well. I hear someone opened a fire hydrant a few blocks from the stadium.

Has anyone been listening to former Orioles outfielder Eric Byrnes on ESPN's Baseball Tonight? He's much better than I anticipated. All he needs is a little more experience and a comb.


I love this debate, even though it's so New York: David Wright and Jose Reyes, or Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter.

You make the call.

I lean toward youth, but that's a tough one.

I wonder if Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was referring to former teammate Terrell Owens when he said: "One man doesn't make a team. Break a team, maybe..."

Stop by the Sports Legends museum at Camden Yards and check out the enhanced gallary honoring the Ravens. It includes the Super Bowl XXXV trophy and the hardware from the AFC championship - both on loan from the Ravens until Oct. 22.

Show up before that date, flash your Ravens ticket and get in for half price.

And enjoy the Stoney Case wing.
