NEW YORK - In the weeks leading up to Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline, Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette repeatedly said the club would do everything it could to remain in contention this season. So the Orioles' decision to allow the 4 p.m. deadline to come and go without making a deal was a surprising non-move. Duquette admitted he would have liked to have made a trade or two before the deadline, and he was active in trying to do so until the end. According to several sources, Duquette and the Orioles checked on just about every available pitcher and hitter on the market.

Good morning and welcome to the non-waiver trade deadline day. Hope you brought your party hats. And nimble fingers for your refresh button. I've checked around and nothing seems to have changed early this morning (although there were several trades in baseball overnight). Let's recap quickly. The Orioles and Phillies have been talking about a deal that would send right-handed starter Joe Blanton to the Orioles for a minor leaguer - and not one of major circumstance.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The voices come from the distant past on a tape so crackly that what actually is being said is among the most contentious points in the trial of ex-Klansman Thomas E. Blanton Jr., accused of bombing the 16th Street Baptist Church in 1963 and killing four black girls. "What meeting are you talking about?" Blanton's wife at the time asks, her voice shrill with anxiety, in a conversation taped by the FBI. "You have to have a meeting if you're going to plan a bomb," Blanton responds.

With roughly two hours to go to until the non-waiver trade deadline, the on-again, off-again talks with the Philadelphia Phillies about right-hander Joe Blanton seem on again. The Orioles were adamant that they didn't want to pick up the remainder of Blanton's $8.5 million contract, which is roughly $3 million. But it looks like they are willing to pick up some of the contract, according to an industry source. The Orioles would likely have to deal at least one player to the Phillies and take on some of the money owed, since the Phillies are seeking salary relief.

The Orioles are deep into negotiations with the Philadelphia Phillies about acquiring right-hander Joe Blanton, but the amount of money the Orioles would have to pick up could be a sticking point in reaching an agreement before Tuesday's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline. They likely could acquire the 31-year-old Blanton for a mid-level minor leaguer, but the Phillies also want to shed what remains on Blanton's $8.5 million contract -- which is approximately $3 million. And, according to an industry source, the Orioles appear hesitant to absorb that figure for a pitcher who is considered a mid-to-late-rotation innings eater.

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard offered a warning to the Tampa Bay Rays earlier in the day that his bat was warming up. Joe Blanton, however, kept his emerging power stroke a secret before last night's World Series Game 4. Using two homers by Howard, the National League's most prodigious basher, one by Blanton, the starting pitcher who had never gone deep in his big league career, and one by former Orioles farmhand Jayson Werth,...

Former Dunbar standout Dante Blanton-Holcombe has been spectacular for the Lincoln University men's basketball team this season. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard averaged 23.6 points for the Lions, who struggled to a 4-22 season in the transition from NCAA Division III to Division II. His scoring average would have placed him second in the nation in Division II if the Lions had been eligible for scoring honors. The Pennsylvania school has applied for membership next season in the Division II Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

Running away The Orioles must have liked starter Joe Blanton's delivery. Or they were just in a hurry to score. They stole five bases yesterday, including three by Corey Patterson. Two of Patterson's swipes came in the sixth inning, and he was part of a double steal with Brian Roberts. Both men scored on Nick Markakis' three-run homer. Jay Payton had the other steal for the Orioles, who began the day fourth in the American League with 36 thefts, one fewer than the Texas Rangers. Muscling up When the Orioles weren't outrunning balls thrown by Oakland catcher Adam Melhuse, they were crushing the ones delivered by Blanton.

He obediently took one date home by her midnight curfew, but took another one to a grocery store parking lot so he could pour what he said was acid on the car seats of black shoppers in hopes of burning them. The incongruous dating life of the young Thomas E. Blanton Jr. emerged yesterday at the 62-year-old's trial on charges of murder in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church on Sept.
