Everyone wanted to hang out with John Waters this week. First the members of Future Islands spent time with the Baltimore filmmaker before they played at Hampdenfest Saturday.  Then Patton Oswalt invited him for a drink Sunday. The comedian posted this message on Twitter: "Hey John Waters: I'm at Salt on Pratt St. in Butcher's Hill. I'll be here for the next hour. Drop in, I'll buy you a Clear Eye Susan. " Waters likes to push boundaries in his work, but when it comes to social networking, he likes to do it the old-fashioned way -- in person.  But Rachel Whang, the co-owner of Atomic Books, spotted Oswalt's tweet and passed the message along to Waters.

New Orioles catcher Nick Hundley arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday morning, happy to be a part of a contending club. Hundley, who was acquired from the San Diego Padres on Saturday in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton , will play an important role with his new team. Starting catcher Matt Wieters remains on the disabled list with a right elbow strain, and his status for the rest of the season is still uncertain. "I didn't know where I was going, but if there was one place I wanted to be, it was here," Hundley said.

At the end of World War II in Europe, a young American soldier was reassigned from the infantry to the military police. He was issued a new uniform, told to practice saluting and ordered to guard the former German SS headquarters in Bavaria, where the U.S. Army had set up a base of operations. As he stood at his post, proudly sporting the black-and-gray patch of the 94th Division on his sleeve, Pfc. Roland "Ron" Sluder spotted a tall, broad-shouldered man in a trench coat making his way down the corridor.

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- While Dehere and Go for Gin rested for their next tests on the road to the Kentucky Derby, a strong new challenge was mounted at Gulfstream Park yesterday when the colt Patton outran other 3-year-old contenders by 8 1/2 lengths and took dead aim at the racing classics.Patton, a son of Lord At War and a grandson of Seattle Slew, led all the way in an allowance race for colts who skipped Saturday's Fountain of Youth Stakes. At the wire, he was drawing far in front of Nick Zito's Crary, the stablemate of Go for Gin, who had three-quarters of a length on Line Dance.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Two bullpen sessions brought different levels of encouragement yesterday for two injured pitchers in Orioles camp. George Sherrill sounded optimistic about his strained right hamstring. Troy Patton became more discouraged about the tightness in his left shoulder - and perhaps his chances of pitching this year. Sherrill will throw on the side again tomorrow and could appear in his first exhibition game Monday. "I threw somewhere around 30 pitches and I felt fine," he said.

AFTER an undisputed 2 1/2-year reign as baseball's most expensive failure, the Orioles have finally taken some uncharacteristically bold action and effectuated a remarkable roster makeover. While some of the moves may have been weighted too heavily toward salary reduction, the infusion of youth and the number of new faces have, at long last, brightened the team's future and given its faithful fan base reason for hope. However, the opportunity will be lost if the organization does not also change its dysfunctional management style, which is in need of becoming acquainted with the career of Gen. George S. Patton.

The Orioles have acquired veteran catcher Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres, along with cash, in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton, the club announced before Saturday's game. The club also recalled infielder Steve Lombardozzi, an Atholton grad, from Triple-A Norfolk. Hundley, who is a career .238/.296/.389 hitter, gives the Orioles a veteran catcher with Matt Wieters on the disabled list and his status for the rest of the season uncertain. Hundley, 30, was hitting .271 with one homer and three RBIs in 33 games with San Diego this season.

In extra innings, every pitch becomes magnified, and after the Orioles' painful 8-7 loss to the Cleveland Indians in 13 innings, left-hander Troy Patton replayed one pitch in his mind. Patton was one strike away from escaping a bases-loaded jam, but he left a 1-2 changeup to Carlos Santana just high enough for the Indians third baseman to turn on it and send it just inside the third-base line for the game-winning hit. “Location,” Patton said. “It was the right pitch. I got him out in front.

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.

The Orioles activated left-hander Troy Patton between the two games of the doubleheader Thursday after he completed a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall use. The Orioles' first game Thursday was their 25th of the season, meaning Patton had to be activated before the nightcap. To make room for Patton on the roster, the club outrighted right-hander Josh Stinson, who cleared waivers, to Triple-A Norfolk. Stinson had a 7.15 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over seven appearances with the Orioles this year.

During his pregame news conference, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he did not want third baseman Manny Machado to play 18 innings in his first day in the major leagues since injuring his left knee last Sept. 23. He also wasn't keen on Machado playing the first game of Thursday's doubleheader, sitting for several innings and then using him late in the second game as a pinch-hitter or for defensive purposes. There were some other factors, too, Showalter said, but ultimately that was the reasoning for Machado sitting out the first game . Machado will start Game 2 and play third base.

The Orioles already faced looming roster decisions before they officially placed first baseman Chris Davis on the 15-day disabled list before Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals. And now the club's roster management is about to get trickier. With Davis on the disabled list and no corresponding move announced Sunday, the Orioles are down one player on their 25-man roster. That's not a concern with Monday's day off. And Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club expects to have 25 active players for the opening of a two-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Left-hander Troy Patton , who is currently serving a 25-game suspension for testing positive for an amphetamine, is eligible to come off the restricted list on April 30, and the Orioles might have a tough time finding a spot for him when he is able to return. Patton has no minor league options remaining, so the team must add him to the active roster when he is eligible or would risk losing him on waivers. The Orioles don't currently have a very flexible bullpen, with only Brian Matusz and Darren O'Day having minor league options.

The Orioles All-Star third baseman, who had offseason surgery on his left knee in October, has been steadily doing his rehabilitation in Florida without a set timetable for his return. On Saturday, he took a step forward by hitting against live pitching, specifically left-hander Johan Santana, who his rehabbing from shoulder surgery.
