A moment of silence, please, for comedic actor Harvey Korman, who died yesterday at age 81.  I spent most of last night on YouTube, checking out old clips of his appearances with Tim Conway on The Carol Burnett Show. When I was a kid, it didn't get much better than that.

This YouTube clip does more to highlight Conway, but it's such a classic that it's worth watching if you have 7 minutes and 20 seconds to spare. Check out some of the others, too, (Tim Conway telling the elephant story is the all-timer among outtakes, but it includes a profanity at the end that would ruin the G-rating of this blog. As if I care...but there might be a few editors at The Sun who do).

You heard it here first: Michael Jordan will never win another NBA title with Doug Collins coaching the Bulls.

Check back with me in a few years and see if I'm right.

The Ravens worked out Freddie Mitchell yesterday. When I read in The Sun that he hasn't caught a pass in the NFL since 2004, my first thought was, "He must have dropped 12 in '05."

Ben Hyman from mlbdraftsource.wordpress.com has the Orioles taking San Diego left-hander Brian Matusz with the fourth overall pick in his mock draft. Check out his site.

Baseball America's Jim Callis also projects the Orioles taking Matusz, who will bring comparisons to Erik Bedard if scouting director Joe Jordan selects him – mostly because he's left-handed and he'd be pitching for the Orioles. Baseball America ranks Matusz first in the Best Secondary Pitch and Best Command categories among college hurlers, and second in Closest to Majors behind Georgia right-hander Joshua Fields.

Is everyone ready for another invasion from Red Sox Nation? Don't forget, it's a four-game series, with the finale coming on Monday. Then the Orioles hit the road for a nine-game, 10-day trek through Minnesota, Toronto and Boston.

I'll be heading to the ballpark later today, of course. I'll pass along the lineup, and perhaps word on whether Steve Trachsel is making his next start.

Down on the farm, Nolan Reimold homered for Double-A Bowie last night after entering the game in the third inning. He was supposed to take the night off, but left fielder Sebastien Boucher was hit by an errant throw.

Single-A Frederick has lost seven in a row, including yesterday's doubleheader sweep by Kinston. Billy Rowell had an RBI single in the nightcap.
