Some thoughts and observations from the Orioles' series in Anaheim: * Wei-Yin Chen is a major league pitcher. He throws strikes, he's not afraid of the competition. And he has good stuff. When a lefty can throw his fastball in the low-90s and locate it, he can pitch at this level. I also like the fact that Chen had a personal goal of lasting seven innings on Sunday. He didn't get there - he was pulled after 6 1/3 - but going deep into games is an important goal for any starter to have.

Chris Tillman already had plans for the next four days. While four of his teammates traveled to New York for the All-Star Game, the Orioles right-hander was going down to North Carolina for a break from baseball. But at 1:08 p.m. Sunday, manager Buck Showalter called Tillman into his office and said, “Congrats.” About 10 minutes later, he was standing next to four of his teammates on the infield at Camden Yards holding a blue All-Star Game jersey with his No. 30 on the back. Tillman was added to the American League All-Star Game roster, replacing Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander, who started Sunday's game for Detroit and is thus ineligible to pitch in the game.

The Orioles close out the first half of the season with this afternoon's series finale against the Angels at Angel Stadium. A win would give Baltimore a series split and a winning record on the club's seven-game West Coast road trip. Matt Wieters will get a day off from catching this afternoon, a move that had less to do with Wieters catching in the All-Star Game on Tuesday and more to do with getting their franchise backstop more rest. Wieters is DHing today and batting third.

The Los Angeles Rams today will take their first formal step toward moving -- possibly to Baltimore -- when they officially notify Anaheim, Calif., they intend to cancel their stadium lease in 15 months.The move, forecasted by the team in February, will be accompanied by a nonrefundable, $2 million payment to Anaheim. It does not mean the team has to leave, but officials there say it is a foregone conclusion."I think the decision has been made. I personally think they are going," said Anaheim city manager James D. Ruth.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Brian Matusz's nightmarish stretch seemingly won't end as his personal losing streak tumbles on. The 25-year-old left-hander was touched up again in the Orioles' 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night and has now dropped 12 consecutive decisions – the longest active streak in the major leagues and second longest in the history of the franchise. "I thought he was better. A little better each time he has pitched since the first one," manager Buck Showalter said.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - It's loud here. Lord, is it loud. It's so loud that the next ballpark giveaway by the Anaheim Angels will have to be hearing aids. Step right up, folks. No question that this wild kingdom of freeways, strip malls, warehouses, parking lots and fast-food joints is trying hard to be heard. Way too hard. Anaheim won't be denied its claim that this is now - thanks to the Angels - a viable, vocal and relevant sporting locale. That must explain the relentless use of those obnoxious ThunderStix again last night at Edison Field.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Bryan Murray, who has been general manager in Anaheim two years, calls Paul Kariya "a Mighty Ducks lifer." Drafted fourth overall in 1993, Kariya has traveled through the good times and the bad and has experienced Anaheim's entire history. He's previously had chances to bail out on the organization and go to a winning team, but he always has decided to stay. Kariya's been the catalyst and poster boy for a franchise that was built from the ground up, a team that came into the league with the Florida Panthers and had to watch them go to the Stanley Cup Finals after just three years.

CHICAGO - The Orioles made their way west Thursday evening riding the momentum of having won their first two road series of the season, heading to Anaheim for the last leg on their three-city, 10-game road trip. Anyone who suggested the Orioles would leave winners of five of their first seven games of the trip would have be deemed optimistic, but their play away from Camden Yards over the past week has the team sitting pretty atop the American League East at 8-5. The Orioles' 5-3 win over the White Sox on Thursday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field gave them three wins in four games here on Chicago's South Side, before traveling to Anaheim for three games against the Angels.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The last time the Orioles were at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the course of Jay Gibbons' season changed dramaticaly. On May 26, Gibbons ran into the rail in foul territory in right field, trying to stop Vladimir Guerrero's hard liner that ultimately resulted in a game-winning, inside-the-park, two-run home run. That night, the Orioles lost a game, a key bat in the middle of their order, and Gibbons lost his starting right-field spot...

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Uncle Walt, the storyteller, saw it this way: "Disneyland is like Alice stepping through the looking glass; to step through the portals of Disneyland will be like entering another world." And if the locals were at first perplexed - "What's a Disneyland?" - lore would soon have it that the magical kingdom sprang from the orange groves as if, well, by magic. In the 50 years since Walt Disney flung open his gates on July 17, 1955, more than 500 million "guests" have stepped through the portals, willingly surrendering to his fanciful notion that "Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy."

BOSTON - It was a tale of two mighty swings by two of the most feared sluggers in baseball. The first sent a hush over Fenway Park, setting the stage for another moment of October heartache in New England. The second sent the sellout crowd into a state of euphoria and the Red Sox into the American League Championship Series for the second straight season. "Everybody on the bench called it. Everybody," Red Sox hitting coach Ron Jackson said. "Everybody in the stands called it." Everybody in the dugout charged onto the field as soon as David Ortiz, who has a knack for getting the big hit, delivered the biggest one in his career, a homer with two outs in the 10th inning last night that gave the Red Sox an 8-6 victory to complete a three-game American League Division Series sweep of the Anaheim Angels.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Angels weren't satisfied with ending their curse yesterday. They buried it beneath a pile of runs and danced on top of it. Adam Kennedy homered three times, his last giving Anaheim the lead, and the Angels stormed to their first World Series with a 13-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins before 44,835 screaming fanatics at Edison International Field. The Angels won the best-of-seven American League Championship Series, 4-1, with their only loss coming in the opener in Minnesota.

For Boston Red Sox fans, it's hard to imagine waking up on Sept. 1 feeling any better than they did yesterday, with their team playing its best baseball of the season and the New York Yankees smarting from a 22-0 loss. Of course, New Englanders being New Englanders, the giddy sentiment probably came and went. By noon, they were probably back to wondering how these Red Sox were going to break their hearts. Maybe they should relax. One look at the wild-card standings, one look at the schedule and one look at history tells us the Red Sox should be headed to the postseason again, regardless of what happens to the Yankees down the stretch.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The suitcases had to feel a little bit lighter yesterday, if players in the majors were required to carry their own. With another city crossed off their schedule, the Orioles piled into their charter plane for the long flight to the Toronto area, the rush of another victory bringing warmth to bodies that otherwise might have gone numb from the trip. So this is how August baseball is supposed to feel? Facing a pitcher who hadn't lost in his past six starts, the Orioles stood up to Bartolo Colon like they've been doing to anyone posing a threat in the second half, getting two quick runs off him and never trailing in a 6-1 victory over the Anaheim Angels.
