The stench of another loss

Five games under .500?

Is anyone still checking the wild card standings?

I can see why these games are airing so late at night. Impressionable children shouldn't watch.

There's a reason The Sopranos isn't shown on the Cartoon Network.

If it makes you feel any better, the Devil Rays blew a five-run lead in the ninth inning last night and lost to the Blue Jays, 12-11.

OK, that doesn't make me feel any better. Nevermind.

Former Oriole Howie Clark drew a walk during the rally. He would have swung at one pitch, but he heard somebody yell "Mine" and kept the bat on his shoulder.

Raul Casanova was catching for the Devil Rays. Yes, THAT Raul Casanova. He's still around.

I'm still waiting for Tim Laker to make a comeback. Or Dave Skaggs.

You can find John Stefero at a Glen Burnie car dealership.

If I'm manager Sam Perlozzo, I'm converting Danys Baez into a starter. Maybe the first inning will work for him. Otherwise, he's only allowed to pitch in games where the margin is seven runs or more. And I'm still going one batter at a time.

I need more Scott Williamson. And more cow bell.

Brian Burres can go back to the bullpen, since the Orioles won't need him to start for a while. But it still wouldn't surprise me if we see Rob Bell in the majors fairly soon. And that plan to bring James Hoey along more slowly this year might be scraped, too, depending on how he pitches at Triple-A Norfolk.

Brian Roberts still isn't in the top five among second baseman in All-Star voting. What gives?

Alex Rodriguez hit his 21st home run last night.

Is that why people are calling him a swinger?

I've got some more draft tidbits to pass along later, after I return from the gym. I really need to work off my frustration, and road rage doesn't seem to be a smart option.
