Unfortunately, since I'll be part of baltimoresun.com's coverage for the 134th Preakness throughout the entire day, there isn't much time for me to post anything other than the probable pitchers for today's games in the Orioles' minor league system.

Be sure to check back later tonight for the game recaps. Thanks for your cooperation.

By the way, I'm going with Pioneerof the Nile, Big Drama and Mine That Bird -- in that order -- for the big race. Don't believe the hype that surrounds Rachel Alexandra.

OK, so there's a reason why I'm writing about minor league baseball and not horse racing. Still, we'll see how good my picks are in about eight hours.
