PHILADELPHIA -- It's difficult not to look at the numbers that Philadelphia Phillies ace Curt Schilling has put together over the past few years and wonder what might have been.What if the Orioles had realized what they had when they made him the third player in the infamous trade that also sent outfielder Steve Finley and pitcher Pete Harnisch to the Houston Astros for injury-hampered first baseman Glenn Davis?It's an old story. Every one of the players in the Orioles' half of that package went on to bigger and better things.

"The Curious Case of Curt Flood" could hardly be more timely. The compelling documentary about the St. Louis Cardinals all-star centerfielder who made free agency possible for major league baseball players arrives Wednesday night on HBO in the middle of our summer of sports discontent with the NFL and NBC players and owners at each throats. The film reminds that as much as we might like to lose ourselves in the games aspects of professional sports, the owners are still management, and the players are still labor, and with billions of dollars at stake it is never just about the games.

If there is any lesson to be drawn from Baltimore City Democratic Del. Curt Anderson's quixotic foray into the House of Delegates Tea Party Caucus, it is this: Cynicism and the pursuit of political self-interest are alive and well in Annapolis. Veteran lawmakers like to talk about a time when Republicans and Democrats fought ferociously during the election season but then put partisan politics behind them when the time came to govern. If that was ever really true, it is certainly not now. Mr. Anderson has something of a point in his explanation for why he, a fairly liberal Democrat and head of the city's very liberal House delegation, would join a group that takes its name from the strongest force in contemporary conservative politics.

I turned 50, which is really not so old. A lot of very famous people accomplished great things after 50. For example, it was during the post-50 phase of his life that the brilliant physicist Albert Einstein produced the vast majority of his drool.But still, when you're 50, you're definitely "getting up there," so I decided I'd better go in for my annual physical examination, which is something I do approximately every seven to nine years. keep my physicals spaced out because my doctor, Curt, who is ordinarily a terrific guy, has a tendency to put on a scary rubber glove and make sudden lunges at my personal region.

Del. Curt Anderson should have learned a lesson from the treatment Sen. Jim Brochin received years ago ( "After fellow Democrats complain, delegate resigns from tea party," Feb. 10). He was punished by party leaders for voting on a crucial bill the way his district instructed him to vote. Representing the will of your constituents is not what you are supposed to do in Annapolis, or Washington, for that matter. You are to do what party leadership tells you to do. Dels. Cheryl Glenn, Melvin Stukes and others quoted in this article should be ashamed of themselves.

Curt Motton's timing when it came to hitting some of the American League's top pitchers was under his control. When he played, and how much, was not. Motton, who died Thursday at age 69 after a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, had the good fortune of playing with the Orioles when they were the league's most dominant team. It was also his misfortune, considering that Motton could never break into an outfield that featured Paul Blair, Frank Robinson and Don Buford. Orioles manager "Earl Weaver loved guys like Curt Motton because he knew what he was going to get," Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer recalled Friday.

The pitching career of Curtis Montague "Curt" Schilling might have come to an end this week, and even though his time as an Oriole (1988-1990) was forgettable, Schilling's career with the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox will certainly be remembered as anything but. Whether you loved him or whether you wanted to stuff a rosin bag in his mouth (and over the years, I experienced both emotions), you can't deny that Schilling will easily go down as one of the most interesting and compelling athletes of his time.
