Remembering April 28 ... or not Asked White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen before the resumption of the suspended game if he had any recollections of the April 28 game that was finished last night. He didn't. "The only thing I remember was Alexei Ramirez's hit to win [Sunday's] game," Guillen said. "That's a lot of vodka between that game [April 28] and [Sunday's] game."

When the Arizona Diamondbacks designated reliever J.J. Putz for assignment on Friday, it brought back all sorts of memories. Obviously, you have to have a soft spot in your heart for anyone named Putz, even if he claimed in an interview with me several years ago that it was not pronounced the way you might expect. He said that it rhymed with "toots" instead of "mutts" and insisted that he had didn't remember anybody making fun of his name when he was in middle school. Of course, this didn't ring true with me and I went ahead and wrote a column that generated hundreds of message board headlines around the country that read "Schmuck interviews Putz," probably because none of us ever really graduates from middle school.

If Orioles fans are lucky, it will be this way for another 3 1/2 months. The Orioles have a chance to win their fourth series in a row if Wei-Yin Chen can pitch half as well  against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday as Jason Hammel did on Saturday night. That would be a pretty big deal after the way they struggled through late May and early June, but --  let's face it - in the American League East, you can't let down for a second. This is the division where you can win eight of your last 11 (as the Orioles have)

News item: Orioles No. 1 starter Jeremy Guthrie got bounced around by the Texas Rangers in his most recent start and now is 3-11 with a 4.23 ERA. He is on pace to be the losingest pitcher in baseball for the second time in the past three seasons, despite a respectable career ERA and solid statistical ratios. My take: It's time to let the guy go somewhere he can have some success. He's still a valuable pitcher with a quality arm, but he's wasting away in Baltimore and he isn't going to change the outcome of this season one way or the other.

BOSTON - The Orioles arrived at Fenway Park on Friday focused on continuing their march toward the playoffs. The Boston Red Sox were waiting, their focus and motivation an open question after a season gone terribly awry. So, what exactly is anyone to expect of this three-game series or the one next weekend at Camden Yards with such important playoff implications for the Orioles and so little at stake for the Red Sox, other than the opportunity to make life less comfortable for the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year?

Maybe Mark Clayton took all that T.J. Houshmandzadeh free-agent speculation personally. He sure looks like a big-play receiver right now. He also showed what a fine all-around athlete he is with that long touchdown pass to Derrick Mason in the third quarter. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

The most impressive thing about yesterday's 27-9 victory over the Dolphins was the five forced turnovers. The Ravens intercepted Chad Pennington four times and recovered a fumble against a team that turned the ball over just 13 times during the regular season.

Nobody has spent more time than me over the past five years telling everyone that Daniel Cabera is just a couple of steps in the maturation process from becoming the next Randy Johnson, albeit throwing with the other arm. I finally gave up on that when Daniel came into camp last spring with a chip on his shoulder and showed no sign of the growth necessary to become a consistent winner. And that was when he was going to make $2.87 million. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

The Orioles raised the bar a season ago and will still be looking up at it when they close out their second consecutive winning season against the playoff-bound Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The only question left is how you should feel about that. Is any season that falls short of the playoffs a disappointment? Or is there still some perspective - or even pride - to be derived from the fact that the Orioles spent 14 straight years wandering through the sub-.500 wilderness before re-emerging as a legitimate contender during their magical 2012 campaign?

There are all sorts of reasons to tread cautiously before reading too much into Maryland's resounding 37-0 victory over West Virginia on Saturday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium, but that doesn't mean that Terrapin fans shouldn't savor the moment and the team's 4-0 start. Everyone knows that the Mountaineers were hammered by the NFL draft, losing quarterback Geno Smith and receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey from a team that wasn't exactly dominant in its first season in the Big 12. And it's fair to point out that the Terrapins were expected to beat each of their first four opponents and the lopsided score on Saturday was inflated by a West Virginia turnover-fest.

In a community ravaged by indescribable tragedy, every individual act of kindness, every unexpected moment of joy takes on a special significance that only those who are living with it can truly understand. So, when Loyola freshman Jason Crane organized a group of 14 players from the Greyhounds' defending NCAA champion men's lacrosse team to put on a youth clinic in Newtown, Conn., just three weeks after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, it may have seemed like a small gesture that would soon be lost among the big headlines and and even bigger political repercussions generated by such a horrific incident.

Does it say something about the Orioles' chances of doing much here that we're already talking about Thursday's Rule 5 draft? There aren't really many exciting possibilities for the Orioles, but I knew I could attract you with that headline. Some posters wrote in, however, saying that the O's cannot choose anyone because their major league roster is at 40. That's technically true, but they can move players off the roster if they really want. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has seen quite enough of the rejuvenated Orioles over the past year, but he said Wednesday that he fully expects to see them playing meaningful games in September again this season. "I'm here to tell you that they aren't going away this year," Maddon said. "People are predicting the demise of Baltimore. That's absurd as far as I'm concerned. " That behind-enemy-lines assessment came a couple of hours before the Rays staged a big late-inning offensive outbreak to even the season-opening series with a walk-off 8-7 victory over the Orioles at Tropicana Field.
