The Orioles re-signed reliever Todd Williams on Jan. 12 after not tendering him a contract over the winter. He led the staff with 62 appearances last season. The Los Angeles Dodgers drafted Williams in the 54th round in 1990, then traded him to the Oakland Athletics five years later for pitcher Matt McDonald. Williams didn't spend a full season in the majors until 2005. He was the closer on the 2000 gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic baseball team. How does a 54th-round draft pick reach the majors?

If you don't know by now about the truly sick comments MSNBC host Martin Bashir made about Sarah Palin, you need to see this video. And then, you might want to ask yourself how it is that Bashir is still on the air. And why aren't folks like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd, who claim to speak for NBC News, not speaking out about this? Those are some of the questions we asked in a spirited discussion on Howard Kurtz's "Media Buzz" Sunday morning on Fox News. Kurtz's other guest is Joe Concha, columnist at Mediaite.

As the Florida Marlins celebrated an improbable victory, several Orioles lingered in the home dugout, seated on the bench with their eyes fixated on the field as if they were still trying to comprehend what had just happened. It indeed, was hard to fathom. The Orioles watched closer Chris Ray, perfect in save opportunities at this point of the season, give up two two-out home runs to pinch hitters and cough up a four-run ninth-inning lead. They then witnessed Marlins slugger Miguel Cabrera smack Todd Williams' letter-high lob, the first pitch of what was supposed to be an intentional walk, into center field for a go-ahead RBI single in the 10th inning.

So, who makes your list of Orioles relievers for 2007? Chris Ray. Jamie Walker. Danys Baez. Another new guy. John Parrish. Kurt Birkins. Hayden Penn. If they go with these seven, I'm omitting Rodrigo Lopez, who remains one of the Orioles' most marketable players despite those 18 losses, Aaron Rakers, James Hoey, Sendy Rleal and Todd Williams. I think Hoey needs more time in the minors - perhaps Triple-A Norfolk - before returning to the Orioles. He gave us a sneak peek. Now let his education resume at a lower level.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Melvin Mora watched Frank Thomas' two-run homer off Todd Williams (2-4) clang into the left-field seats at McAfee Coliseum. He stood motionless for a moment and then stomped around the left side of the infield with his back to home plate. It was Mora's homer, RBI double and clutch defensive play in the fifth inning that helped the Orioles take a lead over the Oakland Athletics into the seventh inning. It was his two-out throwing error that contributed to the lead going away.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- As Orioles middle relievers were clobbered repeatedly in the season's opening weeks, a career journeyman became an unexpected source of hope. "Maybe when Todd comes back," became a catchphrase in manager Sam Perlozzo's daily analysis of the club's relief woes. And right-hander Todd Williams has lived up to the billing, pitching 4 2/3 scoreless innings in four appearances since returning from shoulder and calf soreness. "It's getting more comfortable," Williams said.

Sure we all want a higher level of vibratory chakra energy. Sure we all want a transcendent state of consciousness. Sure we all want to focus our inner light.So iron a shirt, dummy."It's a transcendent experience," says Alice DeLana of West Hartford, Conn., an avowed ironing cultist. "There's a certain gliding motion ... and it also smells good. It's the equivalent, for middle-aged ladies, of sniffing glue."Well, that's one precinct heard from. Scott Nierendorf of Wethersfield, Conn., divides his ironing-feeling (in German philosophy, Plattenregung)

It had become a film on a continuous loop, with the same predictable outcome and the same bad reviews. The Orioles squander an early lead, their offense disappears and a pitcher with modest credentials befuddles them. They tried to write an alternate ending last night, but the only difference turned out to be the manner in which they lost. Working his second inning in relief, Orioles closer Chris Ray loaded the bases after getting the first two outs in the 11th, and Felipe Lopez cleared them with a triple that gave the Washington Nationals a 9-6 victory before an announced 21,782 at Camden Yards.

Do you prefer playing in a dome or an on open-air park? I like the atmosphere of the dome. You don't have to worry about the weather and it's easy to just go out and prepare. But I like being outside. For me, it's better with the grass. I am a ground-ball pitcher and I can get ground balls.

Sure, hot hitting by Miguel Tejada and Nick Markakis has played a big role in the Orioles' fast start. So, apparently, has clubhouse camaraderie, although winning always casts that in a better light. But there's no mistaking the key ingredient: better pitching, better pitching, better pitching. Did I mention better pitching? After last night's game at Camden Yards, the Orioles' average per-game run production of 4.84 is in the neighborhood of last season's 4.74 average, but the pitching staff's collective ERA of 3.96 is considerably better than last season's 5.35 team ERA. The revamped bullpen has been spectacular, and the starters, though not as dominating, have kept the team close when they don't have their best stuff.

GOTEBORG, Sweden -- They have slugged him in the back of the head, waved spiked shoes threateningly in his face and triple-teamed him as if he were Michael Jordan. But Kenya's 10,000-meter runners have not been able to handle Haile Gebrselassie of Ethiopia, the man known as "The Boss."Another world record did not fall to Gebrselassie yesterday, but a second consecutive world championship did, in a meet-record time of 27 minutes, 12.95 seconds.There were no fisticuffs or clipped heels this time, only a fierce sprint to the finish of the eighth-fastest 10,000 ever, with the Ethiopian covering the final 200 meters in 25.3 seconds.

Orioles reliever Steve Kline was supposed to be the left-handed setup man who passed a lead to the closer. He was told later that, because of his struggles, he'd be the first left-hander out of the bullpen, placed in situations that demanded less from him, where one mistake wouldn't necessarily cost the team a victory. And what about now? Pointing to his chest before a recent game, Kline whispered, "Starting rotation." He meant it as a joke, much like everything that comes out of his mouth.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles right fielder Jay Gibbons lay on the ground deep in the right-field corner, as fireworks shot out from beyond the center-field wall at Angels Stadium. Vladimir Guerrero's inside-the-park home run had just given the Los Angeles Angels a two-run eighth-inning lead, but the scene in right field made the score almost an afterthought. After a clearly hobbled Gibbons overthrew the cutoff man, he dropped to the ground. And the player who has served as an inspiration to his teammates and coaches this week because of his insistence on playing while he grieves Tuesday's unexpected death of his mother, stayed there as head trainer Richie Bancells and manager Sam Perlozzo rushed out of the visiting dugout.
