With as much electricity as there appeared to be at Camden Yards on Thursday night, it would be hard not to have a high-energy telecast. Give cable channel TBS credit for that: It did a solid job of communicating the color, excitement and sheer joy in the stands for the American League Division Series opener as the Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-3. It might seem like an obvious choice, but coming out of commercials time and again with hand-held cameras in the face of fans in full orange-and-black regalia as they clapped, cheered and waved signs was definitely the way to go. I loved the field-level shots looking up into the stands.

One of the key questions for the Orioles this season is whether their bullpen can repeat its success from 2012. Bullpens could actually be a deciding factor in a taut American League East. Hall of Fame pitcher and TBS MLB analyst Dennis Eckersley joined us for a quick Q&A the other day where we discussed bullpens and his expectations for the division. Eckersley - who also works as a studio analyst for NESN, the regional cable network that carries Red Sox games - also gave a brief scouting report of Boston's team as the Orioles begin a three-game series at Fenway Park this afternoon.

Orioles first baseman Will Clark had his left elbow examined by team doctors yesterday, and it appears more likely that he will go on the disabled list for the second time this season.Only last night's rainout kept Clark from missing his sixth consecutive game because of soreness in the elbow that prevents him from throwing. He's able to swing the bat without discomfort, and manager Ray Miller suggested Clark could remain on the active roster as a designated hitter and pinch hitter."I don't think there's any progression as far as throwing," Miller said.
