First baseman Chris Davis' two-run homer in the third inning this afternoon, which gave the Orioles a 6-0 lead over Toronto, gave him 37 on the year, tying him with Reggie Jackson for most homers at the All-Star break in AL history, a record Jackson set in 1969. Davis blasted a 1-1 pitch from Josh Johnson the opposite way over the left-field fence. Davis has driven in four runs through his first two at-bats today to give him 93 RBIs this season, making him the sixth player in major league history since 1939 to record 93 or more RBIs before the All-Star break.

After a 10-3 drilling of the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday afternoon, these first-place Orioles are partying like it's 1979. Or at least their fans are. “Nothing is given. Every day is another challenge,” Orioles manager and self-imposed reality-checker Buck Showalter said.

Baltimore sports fans can be defensive when it comes to their athletic heroes, and any top 50 list about athletes who are heroes or otherwise will create debate. Thus is the case with the top 50 list of all-time sports jerks on CBS Sports Line.com. OK, so some don't want to hear anything negative about Ray Lewis (No. 49), Babe Ruth (No. 42) and Art Modell (No. 38). But there are others on the list whom Baltimore fans would have no problems with - Albert Belle (No. 44), Reggie Jackson (No. 14; remember he played here in 1976)

"The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers could be playing for the championship, and I'd rather be here watching the Angels and Yankees." Then Wooden pulls out his wallet, removing a newspaper clipping he must treasure - carefully packaged along with a picture of his wife, Nellie, who was 15 at the time.
