Congrats to the Orioles on a terrific season, and boos to the Red Sox, who got a chance to pay us back for losing to us last year ("The suspense comes down to the final day," Oct. 3). Unlike the O's, the Sox couldn't find the pride to field the best team they could. I've seen Little Leaguers play with more heart then the Sox. We gave them the Bambino and this is how they repay us?

NEW YORK -- There was some consolation following the Orioles' 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night. Following a night in which the Orioles managed just one hit, manager Buck Showalter was told that despite the loss, the club clinched home-field advantage in the American League Division Series with the Detroit Tigers' loss to the Chicago White Sox. With the AL East sealed, the Orioles are still chasing the league's best record --...

BOSTON -- Boston Red Sox manager Joe Morgan yesterday virtually ruled out Roger Clemens pitching this weekend in Chicago, but it appears Clemens will return sometime during the team's upcoming 10-game road trip if his shoulder continues to improve.Clemens told Morgan Sunday that he might be able to pitch Friday. Asked yesterday if that timetable was possible, the manager said, "I doubt it. I don't think he'll pitch like he says, Friday or Saturday. He could if he's sound by then, but if not, he won't be pitching."

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.

Now that Enron CEO Jeffrey K. Skilling has been sentenced (and thus fallen out of the news), the rumblings of discontent over Sarbanes-Oxley are getting louder. Much of corporate America detests SOX, as it's often called, because the law's accounting requirements are extensive and costly. They argue that it was an overreaction to the recent accounting and governance scandals and that Washington needs to amp down the reforms. At least the language of protest is cautious - so far. President Bush says he wants the law fine-tuned.

In what could be his final outing before he is sent to minor league camp, Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman threw two scoreless innings in relief Tuesday against the Red Sox, striking out the first two batters he faced - Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The organization's No. 2 prospect allowed just one hit - a double to Will Middlebrooks. He struck out three and walked none. “I'm impressed with the little things, his time to the plate from the stretch,” Showalter said.

A Marylander who helped shape Oriole Park at Camden Yards and later guided the preservation and expansion of Boston's Fenway Park is looking for a new challenge. Roland Park resident Janet Marie Smith stepped down this summer as senior vice president in charge of planning and development for the Boston Red Sox, a position she has held for the past eight years. Smith said she left the Red Sox last month because her work in Boston was winding down and, after commuting between Baltimore and New England on a weekly basis for years, she is looking for planning opportunities closer to home.

For Boston Red Sox fans, it's hard to imagine waking up on Sept. 1 feeling any better than they did yesterday, with their team playing its best baseball of the season and the New York Yankees smarting from a 22-0 loss. Of course, New Englanders being New Englanders, the giddy sentiment probably came and went. By noon, they were probably back to wondering how these Red Sox were going to break their hearts. Maybe they should relax. One look at the wild-card standings, one look at the schedule and one look at history tells us the Red Sox should be headed to the postseason again, regardless of what happens to the Yankees down the stretch.

BOSTON -- A rainout at Fenway Park last night gave the Orioles a choice: Kurt Ainsworth or Matt Riley against the Boston Red Sox? They decided to go with Riley, whose outing against the Red Sox on Thursday still rates as the team's best start of the young season. The Orioles and Red Sox will make up last night's game later in the year -- the date is still to be determined -- which reduced this to a two-game visit. After meeting with pitching coach Mark Wiley, Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli decided to have Sidney Ponson (tonight)

Michael Phelps won eight medals at the Olympics, but it was the Boston Red Sox, winners of the World Series for the first time since 1918, who were honored as Sports Illustrated's Sportsmen of the Year - the first major professional sports team to receive the award. "Every Sox fan everywhere shares in this with the team," SI managing editor Terry McDonell said. The issue hits newsstands Wednesday. The Red Sox made an unprecedented rally from a 3-0 deficit to beat the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

After the Orioles' 7-2 victory Saturday night over the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter was preparing himself for a postgame discussion with Adam Jones, whom he was considering sitting for Sunday's regular-season home finale. It would be a short turnaround for an afternoon game, but these kind of discussions are delicate for Showalter. Jones, the club's All-Star center fielder, wants to play every day, and usually does, ignoring the nagging bumps and bruises of a long season.

The starting lineup the Orioles fielded Friday night against the Boston Red Sox was one more likely to be seen in March than September. But with the American League East already wrapped up, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said the club will choose its spots to rest key starters. The club's batting order Friday included just two players, right fielder Steve Pearce and shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who were with the club last August. It was missing six starters from the its Opening Day lineup.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

BOSTON -- One of the criticisms of the Orioles this season is that they have trouble scoring consistently when they are not hitting home runs. And that trend may catch up with them in the postseason when they'll be facing quality pitching every night. For now, though, this homer-happy bunch continues to embrace who they are: Baseball's most powerful club and, consequently, the runaway leader in the American League East. On Tuesday, the Orioles flexed their muscles again, hitting three home runs, including two by newcomer Alejandro De Aza, in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox in front of an announced 37,008 at Fenway Park.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is continuing to show he deserves a postseason start while his team has seized its biggest lead in the American League East in 35 years. Yes, 35 years -- before any member of the Orioles' current active roster was born. With their 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night, the Orioles (84-59) have taken a 10-game divisional lead for the first time since Sept. 22, 1979, a season in which the Orioles lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in a seven-game World Series.

BOSTON - It was as if Red Sox Nation had been liberated from Yankees oppression, and last night was the beginning of a new independence. Game 1 of the World Series started as a celebration for the Boston Red Sox. It ended as an edge-of-your-seat thriller. The St. Louis Cardinals made two impressive comebacks, and the Red Sox needed a two-run, eighth-inning homer from No. 9 hitter Mark Bellhorn to pull out an 11-9 victory before 35,035 at Fenway Park. Boston will send Curt Schilling and his mended right ankle to the mound tonight for Game 2, and St. Louis will counter with Matt Morris.

BOSTON - Taking a lead or two against the Boston Red Sox hasn't been a difficult chore for the Orioles. Scoring the tying run in the ninth, in hostile surroundings, almost looks easy, like playing an intrasquad game before a few hundred fans. They are immune to the pressure, almost bored by the routine. When it comes to finishing the job, however, they are at a loss. Two in a row. Orlando Cabrera led off the 12th inning with a home run off reliever Rick Bauer, giving the Boston Red Sox a 7-6 victory over the Orioles last night at sold-out Fenway Park.

Nobody asked me, but… A judge who orders an electric shock to silence a criminal defendant who refuses to shut up during a court proceeding has relinquished his eligibility for retirement duty on the bench. This is alleged to have happened when Charles County Circuit Judge Robert C. Nalley, who hit mandatory retirement a year ago, told a deputy sheriff to zap a chatterbox defendant with the "stun cuff" he was wearing at the time. (A few years ago, the same judge admitted to a Southern Maryland newspaper that he had deflated a tire of a car parked near the courthouse in La Plata.

In scouring the trade waiver wire, the Orioles hoped to add a left-handed bat to balance their righty-dominated lineup. The club accomplished that on Saturday by acquiring veteran outfielder Alejandro De Aza from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for minor league right-handed pitchers Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar. De Aza, 30, spent the past five seasons with the White Sox and hit .246/.312/.358 with five homers and 31 RBIs in 121 games with Chicago this season. Last season, De Aza set career highs in homers (17)
