Ken Rosenthal, the senior baseball writer for FOXSports.com, is one of the most respected media insiders in Major League Baseball. He's so plugged-in, most reporters dream they could one day report the breaking news nuggets he Tweets out when he actually goes to sleep (OK, maybe it's just me). Rosenthal is still very familiar with the Orioles organization from his days reporting and writing columns for  The Baltimore Sun back in the 1990s. Last week on FOXSports.com, he wrote a column that was critical of the Orioles' farm system , which he said puts them "at a severe disadvantage as they try to compete in the game’s toughest division, the AL East.

What could be better than watching the Baltimore Orioles pound the New York Yankees 11-3 on a summer's night? How about watching the Orioles pound the Yankees on a telecast on Fox. I'm not here to put down MASN. I've had a lot of pleasure watching the O's this year on our regional sports network. (Read a piece I wrote last week about MASN's winning ratings here .) But I have to say the direction and camera work Saturday night for the Fox telecast featuring Joe Buck on play-by-play and Tim McCarver as analyst were outstanding.

Chris Davis was one of the hottest hitters in baseball in the first week of the season, though he has cooled off over the past couple of games. Still, his historic four-game start to the season probably prompted casual sports fans across the country to ask themselves, “Who is this Chris Davis guy and where did he come from?” Well, everyone here in Baltimore knows that the Orioles acquired him from the Texans Rangers before the trade deadline in 2011. But Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports has shared some interesting details from the deal . As it turns out, the Orioles more or less bought the slugging first baseman from the Rangers for $2 million.

Orioles reliever Randy Myers sent this letter to The Sun this week (the letter was edited slightly for space):Dear Editor,I'm writing this letter in response to an article written about me on Monday by one of your columnists, Ken Rosenthal. I feel this letter is now necessary since his continual antics of blasting me in the press since last year have not subsided and his twisting of the truth to sway public opinion seems to me as being vindictive toward athletes and myself.Ken Rosenthal also doesn't appear to have the professional courtesy to write his negative columns when we're at home so the athletes he blasts can defend themselves with the local press.

NBA does suspensions rightThe NBA should be commended for immediately suspending the players involved in the Knicks-Heat fight during the playoffs without hesitation even though the players would miss some playoff games. This is the way the spitting incident involving Roberto Alomar should have been handled last year. His suspension should have taken place immediately instead of at the beginning of the new season. Baseball has no gumption to stand up to the players the way they should, and the NBA did.Wayne SpanglerFallstonKudos to RosenthalI had the pleasure of meeting sports columnist Ken Rosenthal the other day. I would like to thank him and bring to the attention of the reading public the fine person that he is. My 13-year-old son was given a social studies issues project to complete in his eighth-grade class.

The Orioles are going to announce some administrative changes over the next few days, though they have been brewing for some time. Dave and John Stockstill essentially will change places in the front office, with John taking over the minor league operation and Dave assuming some of John's international scouting duties. We probably should have realized this a couple of weeks ago, since it was obvious that Dave was traveling internationally more and John was spending more and more time around the minor league operation, but it is kind of an inside baseball situation.

Keep trying, governorHats off to Gov. William Donald Schaefer for his relentless effort to land Baltimore an NFL franchise. It's true a lot of people don't care for him, but everyone should know he kept the Orioles from leaving.But the governor can't let up, he has to turn up the heat and go after the Los Angeles Rams or Raiders while they are interested in relocating. The same goes for the Washington Bullets and Capitals, because it would be great to have the NBA and NHL at Camden Yards.

Angelos deserves praise John Steadman's column of March 26 ("City in Angelos' debt for vision, projects") represents a superb analysis of just how much this self-made man, Peter Angelos, has contributed to Baltimore. The state of Maryland has benefited economically from Angelos' philanthropical wisdom. Without his insight, the state would have been caused to bear the burden of financial aid that this fine man has opted to do on his own. It is so refreshing that Steadman's long-standing experience allows him to accurately reflect upon the marvelous deeds of our Orioles' owner.

Bashing goes too far There goes Sun columnist Ken Rosenthal, bashing another bastion of Maryland sports. In the past, he has trashed the Orioles and their owner, the Ravens, and Cal Ripken, and recently he had the audacity to suggest that Keyshawn Johnson, of all people, should be allowed to wear No. 19 in Baltimore. This statement alone proves that Mr. Rosenthal just doesn't get Baltimore. In a recent column, he didn't blast just the Terps, he took on the whole Atlantic Coast Conference, an entity that is most respected by all Terps fans.

Root, root for the home teamWhy did The Sun have negative articles (not to mention that picture of the crying Browns fans) about Ravens owner Art Modell in the week leading up to the Browns-Ravens game?For that matter, all the coverage of the Ravens runs toward the negative side with Ken Rosenthal, Mike Preston and John Eisenberg. Is Drew Carey ghostwriting some of these articles? Also, why was Cleveland listed ahead of Baltimore in the standings that week even though they both had the same record?

Ripken deserves supportI am writing in support of one of Baltimore's biggest heroes, Cal Ripken Jr.My problem is that it seems Cal's "fans" are not as loyal to him as he is to them. Because he has had a rough start this season, many people are immediately questioning his abilities and referring to Cal being washed up.How many seasons has he stayed with Baltimore when he could probably have made more money elsewhere? How much has he done for Maryland, Baltimore and his hometown, both personally and professionally?

Speros got 'negative spin'We must express our disappointment with the June 1 skewering of Jim Speros and the Baltimore Football Club by Ken Murray and Ken Rosenthal. A "negative spin" is an appropriate phrase to describe how the facts in Murray's article were presented. Rosenthal was downright rude. Yes, let's publish the facts -- the CFL is a shaky league -- but, exaggerated negativism simply costs Baltimore jobs.Jim Speros has put his money, time and heart into giving Baltimore professional football.

Difference of opinion Is Ken Rosenthal having an "off" year, or is he just washed up? Come to think of it, has he ever had an "on" year? How can The Sun expect to be major league with writing like his? Didn't anyone ever teach him that simply writing something negative does not qualify as an "opinion"? For someone who wants to be considered one of the best columnists in the game, doesn't he realize that a rambling series of comments does not constitute commentary? What about cohesive thought?

Leave Belle alone I beg of Baltimore's sportswriters, leave Albert Belle alone. I contend that many of his problems are caused by the media agitating him and meddling in his business. Sports columnists in The Sun already have been piling on negatives, and Belle hasn't even played a game for the Orioles. With that type of treatment, should we be surprised if he goes off before the season is over? Leave him alone, and let him play ball. If he doesn't want to talk to the writers, so be it, and who could blame him?

Don't play the race cardLawyers and politicians cash in playing the race card, so why not sportswriters? That must have been the thinking of Ken Rosenthal when he wrote his column for Dec. 31 ("Lack of hiring judgment right there in black, white").NFL owners are millionaires with huge egos. I believe they all try to put winning organizations together. Why else are they in the game? They certainly don't need the money. Some owners are good at this, others are woefully inept.Regardless, it's their team and their mega-million-dollar investment.
