Mark your calendars for a new meteor shower - possibly a meteor "storm" - this week. While most showers are annual occurrences and easy to forecast, this one is a first. Earth is expected to pass through a debris trail left behind a comet that was discovered in 2004 and named Comet 209P/LINEAR. The shower could mean 100 "shooting stars" per hour, or more. Some scientists have suggested rates of up to 400 meteors per hour. How many end up being visible is uncertain because astronomers aren't sure how much and what kind of debris is trailing the comet.

MINNEAPOLIS -  Left-hander Troy Patton is still getting his bearings back in the Orioles bullpen. Patton was activated from the restricted list between Thursday's doubleheader games as he completed a 25-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test (Adderall). He spent most of that time in extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla., before going on a brief rehabilitation stint at Triple-A Norfolk. Patton told The Baltimore Sun in December that he took an Adderall pill four days before the 2013 season ended as a temporary fix to improve his focus.

Orioles rookie infielder Jonathan Schoop is starting to find his comfort zone at the plate, as was indicated by his four-hit game in the Orioles' 8-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night. Schoop, who began the season with just two hits in his first 18 at-bats, is now riding a seven-game hitting streak and is hitting .429 over that span. His four-hit day bumped his season average to .304. During Friday night's game, I started getting questions from fans about what the Orioles are going to do with Schoop once third baseman Manny Machado returns from injury.

As I watched Tuesday while the anchors on “Fox & Friends” leveled unsubstantiated charges against Rep. Elijah Cummings as if they were facts, I couldn't help thinking how much more dangerous Sen. Joe McCarthy might have been in the 1950s if there had been a show like this to amplify his reckless allegations. The Fox News morning show was playing one of cable talk's dirtier games, and the longtime Democratic congressman from Baltimore was its target for his role in the House IRS probe.

Fox News has a new punching bag this week: Baltimore Congressman Elijah Cummings. Monday night, he and other Democratic members of the House Committee investigating the IRS over allegations that it targeted conservative groups took a pounding on Megyn Kelly's show over recently released emails. Tuesday morning, the beatdown intensified on "Fox & Friends," which kept flashing headlines like: "Where's the Outrage? Media ignores Cummings role in IRS scandal. " "There's explosive new evidence," host Elizabeth Hasselbeck said, introducing a discussion of Cummings, "that he was leading the charge against conservatives the entire time" that he was part of a panel that was supposed to be investigating the IRS for allegedly treating conservative groups unfairly.  Cummings role on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is ranking minority member.
