The San Diego Padres wear patches on their sleeves featuring No. 26, as a tribute to their late teammate Mike Darr. Orioles outfielder Gary Matthews handles his tribute in the silence of the night. "I pray," Matthews said. "Before I go to bed every night, I pray for Nat [Darr's widow] and the boys." The Feb. 15 tragedy that took Darr's life touched Matthews deeply because he had spent three minor-league seasons playing with Darr, sharing rooms with him on the road, hanging out with Darr's wife, Natalie, and eventually their two boys.

TORONTO -- The Single-A ballpark in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is called the Epicenter, because it's near the San Andreas fault. The long and strange and winding road that brought reliever Terry Clark to the Orioles started there in May 1993, in the most absurd of circumstances.Good thing, too, because Clark has become a critical part of the Orioles' bullpen. The right-handed setup man has allowed exactly no earned runs in his first nine appearances.And in May 1993, Clark, then 32, was out of a job, and nearly out of baseball.

We are approaching the Thanksgiving holiday, when we pause to reflect on our blessings by eating pretty much nonstop for an entire day, then staggering off to bed, still chewing, with wads of stuffing clinging to our hair.It's a spiritual time, yes, but it can also be a tragic time if an inadequately cooked turkey gives us salmonella poisoning, which occurs when tiny turkey-dwelling salmon get into our blood, swim upstream and spawn in our brains (this is probably what happened to Ross Perot)
