I just walked the boardwalk in Ocean City for the first time in many years. I haven't gotten any older, but man, everyone else sure is younger. I was going to play putt-putt golf before returning to my parents' place in Ocean Pines, but Michelle Wie was holding up the line. She kept hitting the windmill. Until John Parrish rediscovers his slider, and I mean the one from spring training and early in the season, he's going to struggle. He still has a minor league option remaining. He needs to become effective again or the Orioles could make a change.
