When baseball commissioner Bud Selig said recently that Baltimore was a "very, very viable candidate" to host the 2016 All-Star Game at Camden Yards, those who have sought for the Midsummer Classic's return to the city for years received a boost to their hopes. The Orioles organization isn't commenting publicly on Selig's words, however, because it doesn't want to be viewed as campaigning for the annual event, which has been held in Baltimore twice. The American League won, 9-3, in 1993 at Camden Yards in the second season of the stadium's existence.

Last Week's questionL Do you think the Orioles' highly touted offense is overratedYES -- 32%NO --- 68%The Orioles' offense is very highly overrated. For one, they don't have a true No. 2 hitter and they certainly don't have a true number No. 4. The Orioles can't get by having Cal Ripken as their fourth hitter. [Owner Peter] Angelos is spending way too much money on aging players when he should just spend a lot of money on one big free agent in his prime."E. J. Shipley"I know there's a school of thought up there that pitching and defense wins baseball games, but when the other team beats you, 2-0, you've got real offensive problems.

Who's hot: The Mariners' Nos. 3-4-5 hitters - Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Martinez and John Olerud - went 22-for-48 (.458)
