We acknowledge that the moon, that silver orb of poetry, song and madness, affects the tides. But we rarely consider (beyond the romantic surge some of us feel during the full moon) that it might affect anything else. Yet oysters transplanted from Long Island Sound in 1954 to a lab in Evanston, Ill., maintained their valve openings and closings according to the tidal rhythms of their place of origin for a time - until, still confined to a laboratory, they began to synchronize to the local lunar-tidal cycle.

Long-time angler Sid Rosenberg asks: I fish the Severn River a lot. What is the website to find out the tides on the Severn? Outdoors Girl replies: Remember the days when you'd clip the tide chart from the newspaper, do a little math to adjust for a more localized time and then promptly lose it? I don't, either. I do, however, remember once accidently throwing out the chart and, while pawing through the garbage on the night before a fishing weekend, encountering a skunk. likes to use XXXX.

Brian Roberts, who hasn't played in a game since injuring his right hamstring on the third day of the season, April 4, made his first rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk. Leading off and playing second base for the Tides against Columbus, Roberts went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Norfolk's come-from-behind, 6-3 win. In the first inning, Roberts hit a double that one-hopped the left field wall. He later scored the game's first run on a Jason Pridie single. Roberts later grounded out, struck out and singled.

The Orioles made it official earlier today, recalling right-hander Chris Tillman from Triple-A Norfolk to start in today's series finale against the Seattle Mariners. In 16 games (15 starts) for the Tides in 2012, Tillman is 8-8 with a 3.63 ERA. He has 92 strikeouts and 30 walks in 89 1/3 innings. Tillman takes the roster spot that was made available when the Orioles optioned Steve Johnson to Triple-A Norfolk after Tuesday night's 5-4 victory over the Mariners. Johnson, a St. Paul's graduate, was recalled from the Tides on Monday, but he didn't appear in a game in the major leagues.

The Orioles have confirmed that their Triple-A affiliate will be based in Norfolk, Va., for at least the next two seasons, but club officials are hesitant to comment publicly until after tomorrow's news conference at the Tides' home ballpark. They don't want to steal the Tides' thunder. I hear the ballpark is in a gorgeous location, with a beautiful view of the water, and will be an easy sell for minor league free agents. The Orioles want a four-year agreement, the maximum allowed, rather than the standard two-year deal.

Orioles minor league pitcher Dontrelle Willis has reportedly left the club's Triple-A affliate in Norfolk without the organization's permission after being placed on the minor league restricted list, but the Orioles appear to have no plans to release the left-hander. Willis, the 2003 NL Rookie of the Year and 2005 NL Cy Young Award runner-up, was signed by the Orioles in the spring to become a situational left-handed reliever. He had signed with the Phillies in the offseason but was released midway through spring training.

Before he opted out of his minor league contract with the Orioles, veteran left-hander Randy Wolf unleashed a pitch that hit the suite level at Harbor Park in Norfolk. It seems like he did it on purpose. David Hall, who covers the Tides for The Virginian-Pilot, relayed a bizarre story in his piece on the Tides' 2-1 win Sunday . Hall said that in Wolf's last appearance, he warned manager Ron Johnson that something strange was going to happen. Hall wrote: During Game 1 on Saturday, he threw a pitch that sailed to the top of the grandstand and bounded off the facade of a suite.
