Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Orioles. 4.23 -- Scott Feldman's career ERA against the American League East in 51 appearances since 2005. On Tuesday, the Orioles acquired starter Scott Feldman from the Cubs in a trade that sent Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop to Chicago. Feldman, who was 7-6 with a 3.46 ERA in 15 starts in 2013, had spent the previous eight seasons with the Texas Rangers organization and has plenty of experience against the American League East.

Whether it's hosting "Inside the NBA" or calling a Major League Baseball playoff series, Ernie Johnson makes sports broadcasting seem easy. There has not been much joy for Orioles fans with the Birds losing the first two games of the American League Championship Series to the Kansas City Royals, and TBS delivering lackluster telecasts. The delay of the first pitch on opening night in Baltimore because super-bright TV lights on the set of the TBS pre-game show in center field were left on was an unforgivable gaffe.

A painting of a confident-looking bulldog wearing a Baltimore Orioles baseball cap propped outside the artist Robert McClintock's studio bears a caption reading, "How 'bout dem O's, hon!" The artist Tom Matarazzo's hand-painted screens of the Orioles Bird, with jauntily tipped cap and grinning beak, have never been more in demand than they are this month. Steve Mull's colored-marker drawing of an Orioles team jersey, mitt and a pair of steamed crabs evokes such strong associations with the city that you can practically taste the Old Bay seasoning on those crustaceans.

One of the things I like about baseball - and there are a lot of things to like, especially when the Orioles reach the American League Championship Series - is the way it marks time. You don't have to be a stats freak to remember the milestones. When your team is alive in October, the year of that happy development registers forever. In the Barry Levinson-directed film adaptation of Bernard Malamud's "The Natural," the fictional slugger Roy Hobbs shatters the glass clock in center field with a line-drive home run. That is to say: Baseball will never be ruled by time.

The Orioles hadn't even thrown a postseason pitch in 2014, and already Orioles manager Buck Showalter has rolled out the heavy artillery. Around 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, a few minutes before Showalter was supposed to speak to the media and a little less than an hour before the club's workout at Camden Yards began, Orioles Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson walked into the home clubhouse. Showalter had asked the club legend to address the team before the American League Division Series, which begins on Thursday at 5:37 p.m. at Camden Yards.

Bawlamer, here's your chance to shine. Kinda. The fine elocutionists at gawker.com, ever on the prowl for clarion calls provocative enough to get a response from their site visitors, have announced a new contest that sounds right up Charm City's alley. They're looking for the country's ugliest accent. Prompted, they say, by a fear that American accents are flattening -- that is, that we're losing our regional dialects and beginning to sound blandly alike -- Gawker has thrown down the gauntlet.

The Orioles have already given Baltimore much to be proud of this week by clinching the American League East division title. Not as well known is another reason for Baltimore to be proud of this amazing organization - for the role that they are playing in the fight against lung cancer ( "Reflecting on memorable scenes from the Orioles' celebration Tuesday," Sept. 17). When Orioles Public Relations Director Monica Barlow died this February of lung cancer, she was only 36 years old. She had spent much of her four-and-a-half-year fight against lung cancer sharing her story in the hope of bringing attention to the critical need for research, some of which helped extend her own life.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.
