"Did you ever notice Mike when he came off the mound after a good inning?" asks Alex Flanagan, widow of the Orioles Hall-of-Famer who committed suicide a year ago. "He always had his head down. " That provokes a vivid memory of No. 46, the smart pitcher who studied all and fooled many of the 11,684 batters he faced over 18 major league seasons. He was the long-haired lefty with a mustache who won the American League Cy Young Award in the Orioles' 1979 World Series season. He was all business on the mound, and Alex is correct about Mike's demeanor during his walk to the dugout after most of his 2,770 innings: head down, serious, pondering what he had just done well or not so well.

Before the Orioles' comeback 4-2 rubber match win over the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards Sunday, a third-inning foul ball became a focus of struggle. In a video caught by MLB.com , a young Orioles fan is shown vainly reaching down from the stands for the ball only to have his reach come up short. As an usher motions for the fan to step back, a man emerges from further down the aisle with an umbrella, which he uses to successfully scoop the ball up. He goes on to raise the ball triumphant in his resourcefulness.

The Orioles are traveling to Fort Myers today to face the Red Sox, but some important stuff is going on this morning here at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex. Pitchers Tommy Hunter, Zach Britton and Jim Johnson will all throw in a two-inning simulated game on the back fields here. What happens here might be more important than what's going on down south. The Orioles will send essentially the same lineup as they did yesterday afternoon on the road against the Rays. Here are the lineups: Orioles Chavez RF Adams 2B N. Johnson DH Betemit LF Mahoney 1B Teagarden C Flaherty SS Bell 3B Avery CF Eveland LHP Red Sox Ellsbury CF Pedroia 2B Gonzalez 1B Lavarnway C Ross RF Punto DH Hassan LF Middlebrooks 3B Aviles SS Bard RHP
