Three weeks into this season, Steve Pearce walked out of the Orioles manager Buck Showalter's office in Toronto, sat down and just stared into his locker. It was an all-too-familiar feeling for Pearce, who had just been told he was being designated for assignment. The Orioles had an early season roster crunch and needed to add bullpen reinforcements. Pearce, who had just seven at-bats at the time, was the odd man out. Pearce's hope was that he'd clear waivers, be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk - where he could receive regular playing time - and eventually rejoin the major league club.

It's easy enough to look back at the way the Orioles have scored runs the past few weeks and conclude that their once-feared offensive attack has been in crisis, but the problem is a little more complicated than that. What they really have been suffering from is an identity crisis. There has been the occasional short-term flareup, like the middle-inning fireworks display that carried them to victory Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, but the hitters who ravaged American League pitching last year with a major league-leading 212 home runs are still living in 2013 while a variety of negative factors have conspired to change - at least temporarily - the nature of their lineup.

It's easy to be critical of the Orioles' offense three games into the season, simply because we've seen the script play out this way before. Down the stretch last season, and even as far back as the 2012 postseason, the vaunted Orioles offense had its share of impatient at-bats and struggles with runners in scoring position. When the Orioles offense is clicking, it's one of the best in the game. But when it's slumping, it can be downright ugly to watch. Granted, we're nowhere near that point yet. It's only three games into the season.

A lack of big plays in 2010 prompted the Ravens to overhaul their passing attack (again) this offseason. They cut ties with veterans Derrick Mason, Todd Heap and T.J. Houshmandazeh; brought in speedy veteran wide receiver Lee Evans; drafted a pair of rookie wideouts in Torrey Smith and Tandon Doss; and went with youth at tight end, where second-year players Ed Dickson and Ed Pitta have both spent time with the first-team offense. But the absence of explosiveness wasn't limited to the passing game.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Seven-fourteen came with a home-plate hug for his son, blown kisses for his wife and daughter, and a curtain call ovation in a rival ballpark, from adversarial fans. Barry Bonds, a controversial figure whose alleged steroid use has raised debate over the legitimacy of the latter part of his career, homered into the right-field seats and tied Babe Ruth for second place on the all-time home run list yesterday in the San Francisco Giants' 4-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics in 10 innings at McAfee Coliseum.

MILWAUKEE - It was baseball at its finest, all in one single play. The National League's Barry Bonds hitting a ball long enough to clear the outfield fence. Torii Hunter running fast enough and leaping high enough to make the catch. It was the first inning at Miller Park, and the All-Star Game was finally about baseball again. Not labor strife. Not steroids. Just two players doing the thing they do better than anyone else on the planet - all in one single play. "Unbelievable," said the NL's Sammy Sosa.

"Too much of a good thing is wonderful." -- Mae West WASHINGTON -- Not necessarily, as Major League Baseball is learning from its current glut of home runs. Baseball lightning is becoming as common, and about as exciting, as lightning bugs. And this time the glut cannot be explained by the Happy Haitians Theory. In 1987, when home runs were unusually frequent, Tony Kubek, a former player turned broadcaster, probably was kidding (with baseball people, you never know) when he said: The baseballs are made in Haiti, and Haitians, exuberant about the downfall of the Duvalier regime, are winding the yarn inside the balls extra tight, and pulling the laces on the balls' covers so tight the laces are almost flush with the surface, making it difficult for pitchers to get a good grip, and causing balls to have less wind resistance and pitches less movement.

A home run explosion is changing baseball in Howard County, leaving some coaches wishing for the good old days and creating a debate over the causes for the boom. Evidence of an explosion is widespread: Hammond's Brian Brewer homered in his first six games, a streak that ranks fifth nationwide. Howard's Adam Snyder homered three straight times against Atholton. Glenelg homered four times in one inning against Wilde Lake. Chris Bowen homered twice in that inning. Nine Mount Hebron players and nine Hammond players homered in the first 11 games.
