An article that I wrote for Tuesday's newspaper is about reliever Andrew Miller, who has been absolutely filthy in the playoffs after pitching exceptionally well since the Orioles acquired him for left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. In one sense, it will be difficult to analyze the effectiveness of the trade until we see what Rodriguez does in the major leagues. Plus, it's possible that Miller is simply a rental player, will leave as a free agent this winter, and the Orioles will only get two months and a postseason from the big left-hander.

WELL, AT least Dan Quayle is still funny.The latest in vice-presidential humor comes from Gary Cohn, a 32-year-old entrepreneur in Wheeling, Ill., who has set up the Dan Quayle Joke, Song and Blooper Line (1-900-USA-DANNY), which gives us something to do besides go to the bathroom when we take a break from CNN.Cohn is the same guy who marketed the Dan Quayle Watch -- keeps perfect time but with the wrong numbers, as advertised in the Quayle Quarterly, the only publication devoted to the vice president.

Here are some quotes from a wild night at Camden Yards -- the Orioles' first division title since 1997. Manager Buck Showalter: "You get older, you want to get a good angle and a good seat and see good people get a return for what they put into it and what they're trying to achieve. And this is a huge step, to get a chance now. We've got to figure out a way to win 11 games. " Showalter on changing his seat in the dugout and ending up next to the plaque of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver in the dugout: “There are some great moments in your life.

BOSTON -- Forgive me for being a contrarian, but Dan Quayle was not right.It's been four years, one presidential election and two book tours since that famous "Murphy Brown" speech. Today, anyone who wants to be allowed onto the family values bandwagon has to repeat the same contrite password: "Dan Quayle was right."But due to a penchant for history, and access to electronic archives, I must opt out.Dan Quayle was wrong when he said that "Murphy Brown -- a character who supposedly epitomizes today's intelligent, highly paid, professional woman -- mocked the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just another lifestyle choice."

Well, let's see: the Clinton presidency is going down the tubes, the economy is still in need of a defibrillator, the situation in Bosnia is worsening and crime is so bad in the cities you can't buy a loaf of bread without strapping on body armor and a Glock 9mm.So naturally the big question on everyone's mind these days is: "How're old Dan Rather and Connie Chung getting along on the "CBS Evening News?"

WASHINGTON -- Virtually every review of Dan Quayle's new book, "Standing Firm," contains a line about how Quayle "reveals" that he considered running for president in 1988.There are two reasons almost all reviewers mentions this:1. It appears on page 18 and most book reviewers don't stop reading a book until page 50 or so.2. It is the height of audacity that a person such as Dan Quayle should have even dreamt of running for president in 1988.In the interest of establishing an accurate historical record, however, and also to stroke my own ego, Quayle does not reveal his 1988 presidential plans in his new book.

Dan Ryerson and Selene de la Pena Garza were acquaintances working the graveyard shift at Perdue Farms Inc. when -- out of necessity more than anything else -- they struck up a friendship. There aren't a lot of young people at Perdue, they explain. And few of them work the third shift. Dan, a 1992 graduate of Dulaney High School, grew up in Phoenix. After earning a degree in food science and technology at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va., he was hired by Perdue.

DAN BROS., THE friendly old shoe store in South Baltimore that outfitted celebrity athletes, Major League umpires, politicians and mere pedestrians for more than six decades, is going out of business. The final sale starts tomorrow and runs until the 12,000-pair inventory disappears. Tears. I guarantee tears. "Grown men and women are already crying," says Harry Kalinsky, longtime salesman and the man who recently sold me a smart pair of Giorgio Brutini's for $39.95. The price sticker is still on the sole of my right shoe.

ESPN is bringing its Sunday Night Baseball crew to Baltimore this week to cover the final stop of New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's farewell tour at Camden Yards and, oh yeah, to showcase the first-place Orioles, who entered Friday's game 10 games up on the second-place Toronto Blue Jays and 4.5 games behind the Los Angeles Angels for the best record in baseball. ESPN was kind enough to hook us up with Sunday Night Baseball announcer Dan Shulman, who has called the Sunday showcases since 2011 and is one of the best in the game.

The Orioles have until Sunday at midnight to add players from other organizations who can be eligible for their playoff roster. Club executive vice president Dan Duquette said he is still trying to make a move, but it's not easy to find a fit. “We've been active. We are keeping active,” Duquette said. “It's just, this time of the year, it's a very limited pool of players that you can add externally to your ballclub. Probably the best resource is in the minors, the minor leagues.” For a player to be dealt this time of year, he must first be placed on trade waivers, which are revocable.

The idyllic scene Amanda Schmidt envisions on a recent Monday afternoon sounds less like a music festival and more like a serene, anything-goes camping trip with hundreds of open-minded friends, both new and old. She sees attendees playing basketball and taking dips in the pool, while others watch a stand-up comedian before heading to the woods to observe art installations. She pictures viewers enthralled by a theater performance in a barn, as many others watch Baltimore musicians like Dan Deacon, Matmos and other acts perform on multiple stages.

In recent weeks, the Orioles have built the largest division lead in baseball as they chase their first American League East title in 17 years, but the club now faces the possibility of being without All-Star third baseman Manny Machado for an extended amount of time. An MRI performed Tuesday revealed no apparent structural damage, and the club said Machado was diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain. In some ways, that was good news - especially given how Machado's season ended last year with a left knee injury that required offseason surgery - but it appears that this injury could force Machado to the 15-day disabled list.

WASHINGTON - When the Orioles were discussing trades last month with various teams, they fielded requests targeting their top four pitching prospects: right-handers Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, who they ultimately dealt Thursday to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. But there was another wave of inquiries this summer, too. According to multiple sources, teams asked about the availability of several Orioles position prospects, including Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Dariel Alvarez and first baseman Christian Walker, Double-A Bowie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Low-A Delmarva catcher Chance Sisco.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette spoke to reporters before Thursday's game about the trade with the Boston Red Sox to acquire left-hander Andrew Miller , as well as the nonwaiver trade deadline passing. Here is what he said: On Miller: "We were looking to add some depth to our pitching, and the acquisition of Miller gives us a left-handed pitcher that can dominate left-handed hitters. This year, he's been highly effective against righties, as well. And looking at the market, we had good depth to our starting pitching, and we thought if we're going to make a real impact acquisition, that this would be the players we would get.” More on Miller: “Miller's emergence this year being able to get out right-handers along with lefties made him very attractive.

No sign of the new baby, but it was just as well since Dan doesn't like to compete for attention. Of course, for those of you who don't spend your time in the grocery line flipping through Us and People, I'm referring to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who became young Dan's new best friends when Tom signed a big production contract recently with a company controlled by Snyder.

The shelves are mostly empty, and shoppers are scarce. But Dan Bros. Discount Shoes is back in business. The nearly 70-year-old South Baltimore fixture at 1032 S. Charles St. did not close as expected, but instead changed hands and is getting a face lift. Amir Nia, a Rockville man who is a shoe importer, took over the business Jan. 1. In early November, local celebrities and dignitaries bid adieu to Dan Bros. in what was supposed to be its going-out-of-business sale. The store unloaded all but roughly 60 of the 12,000 pairs of shoes left in the store, at prices ranging from $20 to $1,700.

The Orioles weren't close to acquiring Boston Red Sox right-hander Jon Lester on Wednesday - one club source said bluntly, “it's not going to happen” - but executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to work the phones as the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. today. The club continues to actively search for pitching - with a left-handed reliever that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate as one of the top priorities, according to several sources. “We have a couple of active discussions,” Duquette said before Wednesday's game.
