The Baltimore sports scene is blessed with a bunch of talented bloggers who bring their unique perspective to the conversation. Each week, I hope to chat with one of them in a regular feature called Blogger on Blogger. This week, I exchanged emails with Amanda Redman, who blogs about the Orioles for the Birds Watcher blog . MV: The Orioles entered Monday night's AL East showdown with the New York Yankees with five straight losses, all at home. I know there is still a long way and many, many games between now and late September, but are you concerned that these Orioles might be finally falling back to Earth?

A couple of hours after it was announced that Roberto Alomar would be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame, the former Orioles second baseman hopped on a conference call at noon Wednesday to talk about the honor. I was curious to see what he had to say about this current bunch of Orioles, who are third in the American League East this season and who in 2012 made the playoffs for the first time since 1997, the second of Alomar's seasons here. Alomar says he pays attention to every Major League Baseball team because he currently works as a special advisor for the Toronto Blue Jays, but he does try to keep tabs on the teams that he used to play for, including the Orioles.

Few people were walking around downtown Laurel Tuesday evening, but at Main Street Sports Grill, nearly every seat at the bar was taken for happy hour. Since April marks the start of Major League Baseball play, the multiple flat-screen televisions behind the bar were showing ESPN's highlights from games across the nation. However, come 7 p.m., ESPN would be replaced by coverage of two games, one featuring the Baltimore Orioles, and the other the Washington Nationals. Laurel is sandwiched between Baltimore and Washington, about a half-hour drive away from either city, and at Main Street Sports Grill, baseball loyalties were divided between the two teams.
