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.

About 100 employees of Big Huge Games, a Timonium-based maker of video games, lost their jobs this week as the studio and its Rhode Island-based parent company abruptly shut down because of financial problems. The 12-year-old company was one of the anchors of Baltimore County's well-established video game industry, which has grown steadily since the 1980s as the popularity of computer and console games has skyrocketed. Big Huge Games was owned by 38 Studios, a Providence, R.I.-based company founded by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in 2006.

PHOENIX - The world champion Arizona Diamondbacks arose yesterday to a string of troubling questions about the viability of their postseason title defense. That's what happens when you send the most overpowering pitcher in baseball to the mound in the first game of the best-of-five Division Series and he gets his head handed to him in his ballpark. The St. Louis Cardinals scored such a resounding victory over Randy Johnson in Game 1 late Tuesday night that today's matchup between 23-game-winner Curt Schilling and Cardinals left-hander Chuck Finley has taken on a sense of urgency - and uncertainty - usually reserved for the decisive game of a postseason series.

Making historical comparisons is a tricky business in baseball, especially in this era of inflated offensive statistics and diluted pitching talent, but the dominating performance of Arizona Diamondbacks starters Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling begs for a little perspective. Particularly now. The Orioles open a three-game interleague series against the defending world champions tonight at Bank One Ballpark in Phoenix, and they may want to make some hay in the opener against No. 5 starter Brian Anderson because the next two games present the biggest challenge of this rebuilding season.

Boston Red Sox star Curt Schilling laughs when he thinks about the morning he found out he was no longer an Oriole. It was a career ago, and he was a naive, 24-year-old kid who really didn't know what had hit him. "I remember it clearly," Schilling said. "I was sitting at home, eating breakfast with my wife - my girlfriend then - and [then-Orioles general manager] Roland Hemond called. He said, `Kid, I just wanted to let you know that we made a trade today.' "I thought that was pretty cool, calling me like that.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -When Major League Baseball Players Association chief Donald Fehr showed up at Fort Lauderdale Stadium to meet with the Orioles on the first day of his annual tour of major league spring training camps, he was met with many of the same questions from the players he has been getting from the media. The predictable subjects du jour: the moribund free-agent market and the latest chapter in baseball's long-running steroid scandal. "Basically, as you might expect, we spent some time talking about the economy," Fehr said.

His catcher and first baseman visited the mound for a brief consultation just two batters into yesterday's game. His pitching coach did some tutoring from a seated position in the dugout, the student bent at the waist to catch every word. If Orioles rookie Garrett Olson really wanted a lesson in how to succeed in the majors, he needed only to watch the opposing pitcher. Red Sox @Orioles Today, 1:35 p.m., MASN, 105.7 FM Starters: Curt Schilling (6-5, 4.31) vs. Steve Trachsel (5-7, 4.88)

Burres battles It certainly wasn't a clean five innings for Orioles starter Brian Burres, who allowed 12 base runners. But making his second career start in front of a packed house and against one of the league's hottest teams, Burres held things together, giving up only two runs. He stranded nine runners and left with a 5-2 lead, showing some grit and guts in the process. And he was rewarded with his first major league win. Bullpen sweats it out It got tenuous as it always seems to when the Orioles are trying to hold a lead against the Red Sox. But after John Parrish lost his command in the seventh inning, Chad Bradford and Jamie Walker got the last two outs of the inning, leaving the bases loaded.
