Crush has closed. The last day of service for the Belvedere Square restaurant was apparently Thursday. Crush, which opened in 2008, was from Daniel Chaustit, who had been the "Daniel" half of Timonium's still-running Christopher Daniel restaurant .  There is no firm word yet on future plans for the restaurant space, which had been converted from a Hess Shoes store. In an emailed statement, a representative of Cross Street Partners, the property's managers, wrote, "Right now Belvedere Square owners and management are discussing options for the space.

Last fall, Timonium - home to the state fair and a head-spinning number of chain businesses - welcomed a city favorite, Ryleigh's Oyster. Since then, the Baltimore County version (it calls itself Ryleigh's Oyster Hunt Valley) of the Federal Hill staple has seen steady crowds regularly fill its tidy, well-designed space. On a recent Friday evening, with the location's one-year anniversary weeks away, Ryleigh's hummed along at an appropriately brisk pace. It was the end of the workweek for many in the area, and both bar areas (one near the front entrance and another in the back)

Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel has preached patience with his young pitchers, saying inconsistency is part of the maturation process and the occasional rough outing is expected. Expected, maybe, but still unseemly to witness. It's made even worse when the club's young starters take consecutive beatings at the hands of American League East rivals. Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman became the second straight Orioles starter to fail to complete three innings when he allowed seven earned runs in the third Monday night as the Tampa Bay Rays bashed the Orioles, 8-1, at Camden Yards.

BOSTON -- There's something about playing the Red Sox that has brought out the best in Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds. After Reynolds' solo homer in the fourth inning of Saturday's game at Fenway Park, Reynolds is 16-for-36 (.444) in 11 games against Boston this season with four doubles, six homers, nine runs and 16 RBIs.

Reynolds also had two hits and drove in a run in Friday's series opener against the Sox, a 4-2 Orioles win. He entered Saturday's game hitting /435/.563/.826 with two homers and eight RBIs in seven games this season at Fenway Park Sixteen of Reynolds' 22 homers and 40 of his 67 RBIs have come against the AL East.

It is rather curious, given the American conservative movement's long and dramatic history of anti-Communism and anti-Russian saber rattling, that many leading voices on the right are speaking about Russian President Vladimir Putin with varying degrees of admiration. For some, it is just a matter of comparing Mr. Putin's toughness to President Barack Obama's alleged weakness. Without suggesting any love for Mr. Putin, Republicans in Congress have asserted that Russia's incursion into Ukraine would not have happened had Mr. Obama not been such a wimp in his dealings with Moscow.

What's a nice Democrat like John Coale doing in the middle of a transcontinental tug-of-war for Sarah Palin? Palin has a staff in Alaska that tends to her needs as governor and a staff at a Washington-area PAC that tends to her national brand-building, and together, they're all one big, dysfunctional family whose failure to communicate has led to lots of gaffes, Politico contends. The blog puts much of the blame on Coale, the big-time Democratic fundraiser best known in Maryland for lending Martin O'Malley $500,000 in the final days of the governor's race - and receiving, in return, a bite in the keister from gubernatorial mutt Scout, who was later "rehomed."

Tonight is Crush Davis Action Figure night at Camden Yards, with the first 10,000 fans 14 and under getting a plastic action figure of Chris Davis as a caped crusader. The real Davis will begin the game on the bench. Last year's Most Valuable Oriole is hitting just .196 with 125 strikeouts in 321 at-bats this year. With Seattle's tough, young left-hander James Paxton on the mound, the left-handed-hitting Davis wasn't in the starting lineup. The first baseman also has been dealing with a flu virus that caused him to miss two full games earlier this week.

A Virginia mother has filed a $1 million suit against Trimper's Rides and Amusements in Ocean City claiming a ride left her young son with a traumatic brain injury. Raffinee McNeill, of Accomack County, filed the personal injury claim in U.S. District Court on July 23. According to the court filing, her son and his cousins were on the Hampton I, a ride geared toward youngsters that features miniature trucks and cars that travel in a circle, when an operator "abruptly" halted the ride to let another child off. At that time, McNeill claims, her son thought the ride was over and he also got out of his car. The operator resumed the ride and one of the cars hit her son, knocking him down and "fracturing his skull on the cement floor," according to the complaint.

What is the U.S. doing turning the screws on our most loyal ally in the region by pressuring Israel to agree to halt hostilities? Have we forgotten who the real enemy is in the Middle East? We didn't hear the president or the State Department over the last few days ask Hamas to avoid killing civilians - though that's pretty much what Hamas does, along with storing weapons in residential homes and hospitals with innocent victims. But the scolding was saved for Israel, the country that drops leaflets warning Arab civilians to flee for safety.

" If Baltimore had a Walter White, it might be Tim Riley, beverage director for Bagby Restaurant Group. Except his sorcery is legal and his mission pure of heart: to provide the citizens of Charm City with a summer go-to cocktail uniquely our own. Add in a few buzzwords like carbonic acid and house-made orange-infused vodka, and really watch us swoon. Actually, Riley only needed to utter four words before I was hooked: Bottled.

PITTSBURGH -- Before Orioles slugger Chris Davis left for PNC Park on Tuesday, he made a proclamation to his wife. Davis was giving himself a mulligan for the first seven weeks of the season. “I told Jill, I'm just going to start over. I'm going to start the season over today,” Davis said. “And that's kind of what I did.” After striking out in the first and hitting a single in the fourth, Davis' 2014 officially began again with a flourish -- three home runs in his next three at-bats against three different pitchers as the Orioles battered the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-2, before an announced 22,787.

Entering Saturday night's 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers, Orioles left-hander Mark Hendrickson had allowed a home run in each of his first three starts this season. By his seventh pitch Saturday, he had extended the streak. And by the third inning, he had entered a small but ignominious baseball fraternity while handing his teammates a five-run deficit they couldn't erase with a ninth-inning comeback. "We needed one more hit to get back in it and came up short," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said.
