I just finished reading Paul Lewis' tongue-in-cheek letter to the editor of The Sun ( "Maybe the Toaster finally figured out where Poe was born," Jan. 23), in which he comments on Edgar Allan Poe's mysterious toaster presumably resurfacing in Boston. I at first took umbrage at the tone of the letter, taking Mr. Lewis' comment "...when Poe died there during what was supposed to be a brief stopover... " as an insult to Baltimore, implying that Baltimore has little, if any, claim to Poe's legacy.

NASCAR driver Justin Boston watched his first stock car race in Dover, Del., and he'll be returning there Saturday - this time, behind the wheel. Boston, of Sparks, made his Nationwide Series debut in the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 last Saturday in Sparta, Ky., finishing ninth out of 40 drivers, but his second race in the top-tier minor league series will be at a location closer to his heart. "It will be really cool to run there for the first time after watching there [while] growing up," Boston said this week.

Why does such nonsense as the mayor of Boston wanting to ban Chick-fil-A get such publicity ("Banned in Boston? If mayor had his way," July 27)? It's utter nonsense! One idiot trying to ruin a business. I do not understand how one person can cause such turmoil, but little did he know he has helped Chick-fil-A in a huge way! I usually never want to thank an idiot, but thanks, Mayor Thomas Menino. I have a feeling that more people than ever before will dine there. Senora McGuire, Dundalk

Alas, they still haven't found the missing star. But several fragments of the 30-foot-by-42-foot star-spangled banner that flew over Fort McHenry after the Battle of Baltimore are up for sale this week at a Boston auction house. Pre-bidding is under way for the 3-inch-by-3-inch swatches of the flag, a smaller version of which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the song that became the national anthem. Bidding at RR Auction began at $10,000 but is expected to go much higher. Live auction bidding will begin at 3 p.m. Thursday.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

BOSTON -- One of the criticisms of the Orioles this season is that they have trouble scoring consistently when they are not hitting home runs. And that trend may catch up with them in the postseason when they'll be facing quality pitching every night. For now, though, this homer-happy bunch continues to embrace who they are: Baseball's most powerful club and, consequently, the runaway leader in the American League East. On Tuesday, the Orioles flexed their muscles again, hitting three home runs, including two by newcomer Alejandro De Aza, in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox in front of an announced 37,008 at Fenway Park.

The Orioles made a second trade Saturday night, acquiring infielders Kelly Johnson and Michael Almanzar from the Boston Red Sox for minor league infielders Jemile Weeks and Ivan De Jesus Jr. It came on the heels of a trade with the Chicago White Sox that yielded the Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza for two low-level minor leaguers. Johnson, 32, has played with the New York Yankees and Red Sox this season. The left-handed hitter and 10-season veteran has hit a combined .212 with six homers in 87 games this season.

With the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline three weeks away, the Orioles are pursuing trade options, including an upgrade of their starting rotation. According to industry sources, the Orioles have been closely monitoring and gathering background information on Colorado Rockies veteran left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. De La Rosa, 33, is not a stranger to Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who was in charge of the Boston Red Sox in 2001 when the club signed De La Rosa out of the Mexican League.

BOSTON - Midway through the nightcap of their twin bill against the Red Sox on Saturday, the Orioles were in danger of dropping the doubleheader and losing their hold on first place in the American League East. But after a 7-4 win over the Red Sox in which the Orioles came from behind to score five unanswered runs and shut down Boston with 5 1/3 strong innings from the bullpen, the music blasted inside the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park. Earning a split of their day-night doubleheader was, in a way, a victory.

BOSTON  -  Without the advantage of being in their own facility on Saturday at Fenway Park, the Orioles needed to ensure that right-hander Bud Norris could test his strained right groin as scheduled. So with the Orioles playing a split doubleheader, the club found a way to borrow the Fenway Park field so Norris could throw a simulated game. They traded their pregame afternoon batting practice session for field access between games, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Norris pitched two simulated innings after the first game of the doubleheader, which began at 1:05 p.m. and ended just before 4 p.m. He pitched to Orioles coaches Wayne Kirby and Einar Diaz as well as vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson . Between innings, Norris walked off the field and into the dugout to simulate a game inning.
