The fine folks over at Sports Illustrated gave me a sneak preview of their 2011 MLB preview, which hits newsstands tomorrow. The magazine predicts that two AL East teams will make the playoffs and that the Red Sox will beat the Giants in the World Series. If you read the headline on this post, you already know that the Orioles aren't one of the two AL East teams that SI thinks are playoff-bound. The predicted order of finish in the division has the Orioles in fourth place behind the Red Sox, the Yankees and then the Rays, with the Yankees claiming the sole wild-card spot in the American League.

There will be no baseball played over the next two days, after the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants both punched tickets to the National League Championship Series with Game 4 wins Tuesday night. No baseball until the Orioles open the American League Championship Series on Friday night at Camden Yards against the Kansas City Royals. The Nationals were knocked out by the Giants on Tuesday, so there will be no Beltway World Series. The elimination of the Nats also means that the Orioles, who won 96 games in the regular season, are alone as the winningest team remaining.

There's no nice way to put it for Mount St. Mary's, which must defeat Sacred Heart this Saturday at home and Wagner next Saturday on the road to finish in fourth place in the Northeast Conference and qualify for the league tournament. It's a humbling scenario for the Mountaineers, who won the inaugural tournament championship last year, but it's the situation created by Saturday's 17-14 loss to Robert Morris, which dropped Mount St. Mary's to 0-3 in the Northeast Conference. Coach Tom Gravante said Tuesday morning that the players are aware of the must-win scenario facing them.

The Orioles' games in the next week, for the most part, appear to be meaningless. But there is still something to monitor. The Orioles have to win one of their next seven games -- or have the Detroit Tigers lose once -- to clinch the second seed in the American League. (The Orioles have already clinched the No. 2 seed against the Kansas City Royals). That means there will be playoff matchups -- the first two games of the AL Division Series -- at Camden Yards on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3. It's most likely they'll be playing the AL Central winner, either the Tigers or the Royals.

If the Ravens' 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday was any indication, Tom Zbikowski could be the first to get a shot at returning kicks on Thanksgiving night when the San Francisco 49ers visit M&T Bank Stadium. Zbikowski isn't confirming that scenario, but he said that's his mindset. “It might be like last week where we've got multiple returners,” Zbikowski said after Wednesday's practice. “You've just got to be prepared for anything and be prepared for everything.

Harry believes gold prices will go up. In fact, he believes it so strongly that he decides to bet his life's savings on that scenario. So, he cashes in his stocks and bonds and invests in gold coins, mining shares and gold futures.If his forecast comes true and gold prices go up, Harry will make a killing. But what if he's wrong? If gold prices drop, Harry will be up a creek without a paddle. His life's savings will shrink, and he will have missed the opportunity to take advantage of other investments in the interim.

ATLANTA — Paul Casey will spend much of next week biking with friends through the Canadian wilderness, traversing huge stretches far from a newspaper or a TV or even a cell phone tower. That's good. Nothing like a deep breath of the great outdoors to clear one's head. Find time to get away from your troubles. And for Casey, next week presents a good alternative. Where he rather would be, of course, is Celtic Manor in Wales, battling alongside his European compatriots as they try to recapture the Ryder Cup. But the English pro didn't make the cut — the odd man off the roster even though he ranks among the sport's top 10 practitioners.

The Sun's article about the redistricting committee's recommendation on how to split up enrollment zones for Rodgers Forge Elementary and the new West Towson Elementary ("Rodgers Forge critics relieved by school districting plan," Jan. 21) failed to mention that the decision-making process was tainted by a secret meeting and leaked information. After four meetings between October and December -- all of which were announced in advance and open to the public -- the committee settled on three options to present to the public: A-1, I and E-1. The committee members were instructed not to discuss potential scenarios until they were presented at a public forum.

If life were a movie, the president of the United States (probably played by Will Smith) would be leaping into action to save humankind from the calamity that a new scientific report says is about to befall Earth. A paper prepared by 22 international scientists and just published in the journal Nature warns that overpopulation, environmental destruction and climate change have pushed the world toward a tipping point beyond which lie irreversible, frightening alterations in the biosphere that supports life on this lonely planet.

Does anyone, besides me, see the irony in the behavior of public figures who stand up against bullying? It seems that those who speak out against it the loudest are the very ones who are the biggest bullies. We see that scenario played out by Gov. Martin O'Malley, President Barack Obama and now Dan Rodricks ("Refs, retail politics and a quiet delegate," Sept. 27). I guess he is proud to be in such distinguished company with the "big bullies. " With such noted examples of behavior, it is no wonder our young people have become increasingly intolerant of those with differing interests or lifestyles.

A lawyer for the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network told a judge the network's cash reserves would be nearly eliminated and its operating margin dangerously thin if a June 30 decision by a league committee is allowed to stand, according to court documents. Documents — including affidavits, memorandums, transcripts and exhibits — describe from MASN's perspective a worst-case scenario in the television rights fee case pending before a New York judge. MASN has asked the judge to extend a temporary restraining order issued Aug. 7 blocking the panel's decision from being enforced.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Billy Gowan has a vision in his mind's eye of how Saturday's Belmont Stakes might unfold. He pictures his horse, Ride On Curlin, pulling alongside Triple Crown aspirant California Chrome with a quarter mile left in the race. "I'd like to be eyeing California Chrome and see who has the best horse," says the folksy Louisiana native. "I'd like to see me and him come down the stretch, because we've made it to all three dances. " Ride On Curlin and General a Rod are the only challengers who've chased California Chrome through each leg of his quest for the first Triple Crown since 1978.

Christian Nicholson of Columbia gave up a job as personal banker for his true calling, being dispatched via ambulance to help victims requiring immediate, sometimes life-saving attention. Meg Simmers of Baltimore felt a similar tug, leaving an air-quality management job. The two are members of the Howard County Fire and Rescue Services' 28th academy class, and on a recent Friday, they and about three dozen classmates took part in emergency training that included assisting a mock victim who had suffered a fall from an exercise machine at a gym. It was a fairly tame drill.

Every option is potentially fraught with more technical headaches and expense. Exchange officials are mulling five possible scenarios in the wake of the disastrous launch of the exchange, where technical difficulties have thwarted thousands of people from signing up for health insurance.

WE HAVE become a country of villains and victims and, the evidence shows, we like it that way.Television and other media are consumed with plots involving perpetrators and their prey. People who have harbored or forgotten grievances for decades are suddenly recalling childhood abuses by parents and others. Employees of businesses, patrons of restaurants, customers of stores and people who come into contact with government authority are decrying the harsh and lawless treatment they claim they have received.

After losing to the New England Patriots, 41-7, on Sunday, the Ravens now need a little help if they want to reach the postseason. In order to clinch the sixth and final playoff berth, the Ravens (8-7) need to defeat the AFC North division champion Cincinnati Bengals (10-5) in the regular-season finale and they need either the Miami Dolphins (8-7) to lose to the New York Jets or the San Diego Chargers (8-7) to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs. If there's a three-way tie between the teams to finish the season, the Dolphins hold the edge because of their 7-4 conference record over the Ravens' 6-5 conference record and the Chargers' 5-6 mark.
