It appears the Seattle Seahawks flew back from Washington on the same Delta plane that the Orioles took back after their American League Division Series sweep of the Tigers, and punter Jon Ryan took issue with the differences in the menus . Well well well Delta I can't help but notice that the Orioles menu looked better than ours today.

Of the articles I have read about the Exxon-Mobil station leak of 2006, it seems like every other paragraph mentions the $1.5 billion awarded to the 160 families involved in the class action suit and the amount that some families will receive. Some will receive a lot more than others because they suffered more. But of the three articles I have read, not one of them mentions how much the lawyers stand to gain out of the settlement. I hope the parties involved opt for one-third to go for the lawyers.

The Orioles came into the American League Division Series knowing they couldn't match the Detroit Tigers ace for ace. No single Oriole could comfortably compare resumes with Detroit's Game 1 starter, Max Scherzer, the 2013 AL Cy Young Award winner. But as they have all season, the Orioles found a less traditional way to outduel flashier talent. Two first-time postseason performers, starter Chris Tillman and reliever Andrew Miller, combined to produce a better line than Scherzer before the Orioles blew the game open against the Tigers bullpen and won, 12-3.

But then a family friend sat her down and urged her to change. "She said she was worried about my health," Burgess said of the friend. "Initially, I was very offended.

With career highs in home runs and RBIs, Nelson Cruz did more than enough to earn his first Most Valuable Oriole award this season. Now the question is whether the pending free agent will return next year to have a chance to win it again. “Hopefully I stay here, we work something out. Like I said before, I understand they're going to do whatever they think is better for the team,” Cruz, 34, said. “I love it here. I love the fans, I love my teammates.” Cruz, who leads the major leagues in home runs with 39 and is second in the American League with 106 RBIs, said before Sunday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox that he'll think about his contract situation once his season is completed.
