St. Louis -- I was awakened by a phone call early yesterday from a friend in L.A. who wanted one good reason why Kenny Rogers would not be taking the mound for Game 5 of the World Series. The gummy-thumbed Gambler would have been on regular rest and the Detroit Tigers were down to their last 27 outs, but manager Jim Leyland chose to stay with rookie Justin Verlander instead of the guy who was working on a string of 23 scoreless postseason innings. It was a fair question, though I hate it when people on the West Coast just naturally assume you will be up at 11 a.m. because they're already at work at 9. Kenny had been untouchable throughout this postseason and Verlander is a rookie who gave up seven runs in Game 1. Of course, it would have been inconceivable three or four years ago to think that anyone would ever be clamoring for Rogers to move up in a postseason rotation, but Leyland found himself at back-to-back news conferences Thursday night and yesterday afternoon explaining why it wasn't going to happen.

Kenny Rogers Kenny Rogers' career, which spans more than six decades and crosses into a variety of music genres, is still going strong. The man who first hit it big in 1977 with "Lucille," which went No. 1 in 12 countries, celebrated his 51st Top 20 single with "I Can't Unlove You," from his March release, Water & Bridges. He has found a permanent place in American culture, with acting credits and a chicken-and-ribs restaurant chain to his name. He plays the Filene Center at Wolf Trap with the Oak Ridge Boys on Saturday.

On Kenny Rogers Keep a very close eye on him, and eject him if the "dirt" shows up again. For not washing his hands? Seriously - at this point that is all that is proven. What do you attribute the rest of his night's pitching performance on? Dirt/tar gone, he still mows them down.

I'm not always right, but I did say the Broncos were a lock - not a dominant one, but they covered - and that Kenny Rogers would outpitch Jeff Weaver to even the World Series as it shifts to St. Louis. Not exactly going out on the limb, but please don't ruin my moment. So Rogers had an unfair advantage because of the "substance" on his pitching hand? (It was pine tar, folks. Let's not call it anything else.) He didn't exactly get smacked around after he washed it off. I hate the close-ups of Weaver peering in for the sign from his catcher.

Tight end Quinn Sypniewski was a fifth-round draft pick for the Ravens this year. In his final season at Colorado he played in all 13 games, started seven and had 29 receptions for 447 yards and five touchdowns. What type of music do you listen to? "I listen to a wide variety of music, but it pretty much consists of rock and country. It doesn't stray too far from that." What is the last movie that you saw? "I don't know what the last thing I saw was but the best thing I've seen lately was Walk the Line.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig needs to act right now. If he lets the Detroit Tigers continue their amazing turnaround, it could have a negative effect on the Orioles. The precedent already has been set. The arrival of the Washington Nationals was such a threat to the well-being of the Orioles that Major League Baseball eventually agreed to a huge compensation package to help build the two-team Mid-Atlantic Sports Network and assign the lion's share of the broadcast rights to the Orioles.

Rodrigo Lopez jerked his head back long enough to see where Brandon Inge's drive was likely headed. He couldn't bear to watch the ball's flight, so the Orioles starter stomped toward home plate and twice pounded his fist into his glove. There has never been a more frustrating time for Lopez in an Orioles uniform. His winless streak stretched to seven outings last night when two pitches in the seventh inning ruined what was shaping up as a solid performance.
