Kevin Millar, Orioles DH Are you looking forward to going to Cooperstown for the Hall of Fame Game? This will be my fourth time, and if you are a baseball junkie, which I am, you enjoy going there. ... Would you rather have a day off with your family? Yeah. But it's part of the gig, and once you are there, it's a fun day.

The Orioles scored just four runs in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field over the weekend. But the club's power was on display with its return to Camden Yards on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles have hit five home runs on their way to a 9-1 lead in the eighth inning. Trailing, 1-0, Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce hit back-to-back homers in the third inning. The Orioles then hit three consecutive home runs in their six-run fifth inning.

We know the Orioles have had some revolving doors at certain positions over the years - left field, first base, etc.  - but the Orioles' recent run on Opening Day designated hitters is pretty astounding. Assuming, of course, that you recognize DH as a position. Right-handed hitting Steve Pearce gets the call today at DH against Tampa Bay lefty David Price. Pearce becomes the 11th different DH the Orioles have used on Opening Day in the past 11 seasons. That's right, 11 DHs in 11 seasons.

Here's all we really know about the first base situation: The Orioles want a right-handed hitter or a switch-hitter to fill the opening at first base left by Kevin Millar, who apparently will not get the opportunity to fill it himself. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

On the Orioles' re-signing of Chris Gomez Is it possible to have a roster full of role players? Our bench is more solid for his presence and enthusiasm to do whatever is required of him. If they end up unable to acquire a first baseman, I like having Gomez as a late-inning replacement for Kevin Millar.

This week's guest is the Orioles' Kevin Millar. Jamison Hensley Ravens, 20-7 It doesn't matter which quarterback starts. This one will be dominated by defense. Edward Lee Ravens, 28-9 Pity the Jets. They're running into an angry Ravens team still smarting from Monday night's loss. Rick Maese Ravens, 20-10 As long as Ravens trainer Bill Tessendorf isn't a candidate for the game ball again, the Ravens should be safe this week. Don Markus Ravens, 17-7 Given the quarterback issues for both teams, the Ravens will win their home opener with stronger defense and special teams.

Entering last offseason, the Orioles were at a crossroads. New club president Andy MacPhail decided an overhaul was needed. MacPhail upgraded the young talent base by dealing Miguel Tejada and Erik Bedard for 10 players, including six who received time with the big league club this year. This was supposed to be a season in which the club evaluated what it had in its system. Unfortunately for the organization, the majority of young players either failed the test or received an incomplete grade.

SLUMP ENDS: Orioles shortstop Juan Castro, who was in an 0-for-11 skid and just 2-for-20 during the homestand, hit a double during a two-run rally in the second inning and drove in two runs with a bloop single in the fifth. Both hits came with two outs. MARKAKIS GUNS DOWN: ANOTHER: Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis threw out the White Sox's Jim Thome, who was trying to stretch a drive off the right-field scoreboard into a double in the third. It was Markakis' 15th assist. Going into the game, he led all major league outfielders in assists.

The Orioles' official motto for 2008 is, "This is Birdland." The unofficial one, the one club president Andy MacPhail and the front office discussed extensively in the spring, is, "We're not in the 2008 business. Or the 2009 business." It's bad form - and terrible marketing - to announce that your team has given up on a season before it has begun. So that was never proclaimed, just assumed. The fans seemed resigned to it. The club would lose a bunch, but it would develop young talent, maybe trade for some more and be ready to make a statement in a few years.

Jeremy Guthrie says it doesn't matter, as long as the result is an Orioles victory. The Orioles right-hander is content working with a big lead and with the luxury of knowing that one mistake is not going to cost him a win. But there is something about a tense pitcher's duel that Guthrie has learned to enjoy, and he had had plenty of experience over the past three months in such situations. The Orioles, however, would prefer games like yesterday's 10-4 victory over the Texas Rangers in front of an announced holiday crowd of 21,363 at Camden Yards every time.

There comes a point when you just have to roll with it. The Orioles swept a two-game series against the Boston Red Sox in dramatic fashion and now have won four of their first five games against the defending World Series champions and New York Yankees. It might be way too early to ask "Why Not?" but it's not too early to join in the fun. And, make no mistake, the Orioles are having quite a time. All you had to do was watch the walk-off handshake session to see that. They had their bills turned up to emulate the goofy way closer George Sherrill wears his cap. They had the look of a team that no longer thinks it has to keep pulling rabbits out of those hats to beat the best teams in the American League, even though that's pretty much what they did in each game against the Red Sox. This time, it was Jay Payton lining a grand slam into the left-field bleachers to turn around another late-inning deficit.

In a sport where having a bad body often makes you one of the guys, Brian Roberts is a happy, healthy exception. He's also a target for some playful ribbing. Roberts sits at a table in the middle of the clubhouse each morning and dines on organic waffles with organic honey drizzled over them. Sometimes he adds organic blueberries to the menu, placing them next to a jar of organic peanut butter. He washes it all down with 100 percent freshly squeezed orange juice. "You ever notice that to eat healthy, you've got to be rich?"
