Should finale be reset if it rains?

* One of the biggest events in Memorial Stadium history could be a washout if it rains on Oct. 6, when the Orioles are to play Detroit in their final game ever at the stadium. According to major-league rules, the game would not be rescheduled if it has no bearing on the pennant race. However, more than 50,000 fans will have tickets to the last game. Should the baseball commissioner make an exception in this case and let the Orioles reschedule it?

O's fans expect more changes

* More changes are in store for the Orioles this season, according to respondents of "It's Your Call."

In wake of the demotion of Jeff Ballard, Jeff Robinson and Paul Kilgus, readers were asked if there would be any further shakeups on the team this season. Eighty-six percent of the 256 respondents said Tuesday's purge would not be the last this season, with only 36 callers saying the Orioles would now sit tight.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
