Ravens @ Rams 4:05 p.m. Sunday TV: WJZ/CBS Radio: 98 Rock, 1090 AM Rome Cee, rapper We are not looking our best on both sides of the ball, but we may be able to pull this out. Ravens 10-7 '11 Record: 1-1 Franchon Crews, boxer I'm as confused as Ortiz after the Mayweather KO. Go Ravens? Ravens 28-10 '11 Record: 1-1 Sarah Acconcia, chef, 13.5% Wine Bar Sounds intimidating. If they were named the Sheep, I'd say the Ravens might win. Or the Ewes.

Right before the season started, Ed Encina. Pete Schmuck and I put together our predictions for the team. We published half of those prognostications before Opening Day. I held onto the other 10 for a while. I think it is more fun to see some of the predictions as the season begins to unfold. As you will read, we all thought Matt Wieters was primed to have the best year of any current Oriole. And we didn't think Freddy Garcia would get an extended look. Remember, before you rip us for being out of touch, not one game had been played before we made these calls.

We are going to get the bar going a lot in the next few weeks. There will be lots of things to discuss. Lots of predictions for you to share. Much has been made about what the Orioles' roster for the American League Division Series will look like. I'd imagine we'll know at some point today, though Buck Showalter doesn't have to submit it until Thursday morning. Honestly, I think it's pretty set. To me there are only two spots that are unclear. That's because I believe Kelly Johnson, T.J. McFarland and David Lough are going to make the roster.

Two bar openings in two days. Must be early in the offseason. Couldn't let this one pass, though. Not with the World Series starting tonight. I know some of you are cringing when you hear “World Series,” lamenting about what might have been. Well, don't. The Orioles had a season that exceeded everyone's expectations. Be thankful that they went as far as they did. And don't let their early exit stop you from watching this October Classic. I know I'm biased, but the World Series will always be my favorite Reality TV Series.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 27, Browns 6 Facing their second nationally televised game in four days, the Ravens are tired and sore. But when is a team ever too tired and sore to beat the Browns? John Harbaugh talked up the winless Brownies like they were Lombardi's Packers, but the Ravens' no-huddle offense should feast on the banged-up Cleveland 'D.' Edward Lee Ravens 34, Browns 17 After that emotional win against the New England Patriots on Sunday night and a short week, this game screams "Letdown.

Maryland Weather blog readers predicted a wide range of potential snowfall this winter in Baltimore, but on average, did not stray far from history. On average, readers are predicting 20.4 inches of snowfall in our annual forecasting contest , slightly above the average of 20 inches. Guesses ranged from a light 6.9 inches -- still 5 inches more than last winter's paltry 1.8 inches -- to 37 inches. The median guess was 20 inches, meaning readers are evenly divided in expecting an above- or below-average season.

Here's a look at how our Orioles Insiders see tonight's American League wild-card playoff against the Rangers shaking out: Eduardo A. Encina Orioles 5, Rangers 3 This is the kind of matchup up that Orioles manager Buck Showalter enjoys, a one-game, winner-take-all fight to the final out. And his team will relish it, too. Every time the Orioles seem to be out this season, they come charging back. Expect Showalter's wild-card roster to be packed with relievers so he can utilize matchup advantages. If the suddenly silent bats show up, the Orioles are coming home for the ALDS.  Dan Connolly Orioles 7, Rangers 6 There's absolutely no logical reason for this pick.

After a month of meaningless exhibitions, the 2011 Major League Baseball season begins this afternoon as a dozen teams take the field. The Orioles will be watching on TV today, presumably in a hotel or a sports bar down in Florida as they await their season opener against the Rays tomorrow night. Now that the season is finally here, it's prediction time. About 100 people from ESPN made their predictions , and there was a lot of love for the Red Sox and Phillies. Fanhouse foresees a Boston-Philadelphia World Series , too. A couple of guys from Sports Illustrated think the Reds are going to win it all . And all three of Yahoo's predictors have AL East teams winning the World Series , though none of those teams are from Baltimore.

Osiris Therapeutics cut its quarterly losses in half as it more than doubled sales of its stem cell-based medical treatments used in wound care and sports medicine, but it widely missed Wall Street analysts' expectations. Sales grew to $13.3 million in the quarter ended June 30, up from $5.3 million in the same quarter of 2013. Losses narrowed to $1.9 million from $3.8 million over the same period. When solely considering Osiris' operations, excluding any long-term costs, officials at the Columbia-based company said losses narrowed to $66,000.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars of the game when the Ravens host the Carolina Panthers in the first and possibly only "Blood and Guts" Bowl. 1. Wide receiver Steve Smith Who else could it be? Any fairly educated guess as to who's the difference in this game must include the former Panthers wide receiver for several reasons, not the least of which is because he holds a big grudge against Carolina.

Night of Champions has had a lackluster build, but the pay-per-view could end up directing the flow of the WWE for the next few months. The WWE seems to always get in a bit of a rut after SummerSlam. They had so much geared up toward the big event, that they have a bit of a hangover in September or October. This year has been no different, as they have limped to this weekend's pay-per-view, Night of Champions. Once you throw Roman Reigns' injury into the equation, which takes out one of the marquee matches in Reigns against Seth Rollins, and there has to be a lot of questions swirling around this show.

The almanacs are out with their winter predictions. The Old Farmer's Almanac published since 1792 and the Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack (since 1797) and Farmers' Almanac (since 1818) all are predicting a very cold winter with above-average amounts of snow for the Mid-Atlantic. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will release its outlook for this winter in October. Also, did you know that The Baltimore Sun once produced an almanac from 1876 to 1928?

Back-to-school promotions showed up in many area stores in mid-July. But now that the kids are back in classrooms -- or headed there soon -- the real shopping will begin, one analyst believes. Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, says this year's shoppers are waiting for school to start. He noted that retail sales in July didn't get the expected bump to help kick off the third quarter. Here's his take: "Parents are prioritizing by purchasing supplies first, then some basic wardrobe necessities and lastly following up with fashion, putting summer aside and purchasing clothing and apparel for colder rather than warmer weather," he said today in an NPD blog post.

Nearly 35 million Americans are expected to travel for Labor Day weekend this year, a slight increase over last year and the most since recession-driven declines began in 2008, according to driver advocacy organization AAA Mid-Atlantic. The group expects 34.7 million people to travel 50 miles or more over the course of the holiday weekend, a 1.3 percent increase from 2013. Of those, about 86 will go by car, the group predicts. Nearly 8 percent will travel by air. "Despite stagnant income growth and a modest economic recovery, consumers continue to remain enthusiastic about traveling and are willing to pull out their credit cards to pay for the last holiday weekend trip of the summer," said Ragina Cooper-Averella, a AAA spokeswoman, in a statement.

Two years ago, when the Orioles opened at Tropicana Field, Peter Schmuck , Jeff Zrebiec and I went to an Italian restaurant in Tampa the night before the opener. And while waiting for our food we decided to make random predictions about the Orioles. We ended up sharing it in a blog, and for some reason, it was well received. Zrebiec is now anchoring our coverage of that World Champion football team in Baltimore and Ed Encina joined our crew last year. And we decided to keep a tradition alive - or at least make it two times in three years - with Ed on board.
