Hey Jeff i bet you keep hoping and praying that things start turning around so you won't have to write that article.I know it can't be a pleasant thing for any media member to do.

Jeff Z's reply: I'm not worried about it. Nothing that happens the next three days is going to change the reality of it.

Things are looking up for Norfok with the arrival of Tillman, Berken and now Fox. I expect the Tides to turn in on in the second half

Jeff, when you give the O's lineup like this, is the opponent's lineup not available at the time? It'd be nice to see that, too.

Jeff Z's reply: It is sometimes and other times it isn't. My priority is the Orioles so unless it's right in front of my face, I usually don't include it.

JEFF Always good to hear from you... Would it be legal or allowed to put incentives into a signing say 25,000 for each start this year to try to speed up getting Bundy into the organisation ASAP.. BUT perhaps we could not make a big enough incetive to overcome the extra million his agent might get dragging it out to the last day.. Joe Jordan just said if we could get him in this summer it would probably let him skip ahead some next year.. WOULD you expect to see both Bundys being in Bowie next year at some point.. ONE more gut feeling question... I can't see Buck being stuck with 2 DH's next year.... IF we do get a big slugger 1B would you see a probability of trading or leving Scott leave and DHing Roberts or a Roberts leadoff type to protect against him being out... WE are a whole different offense with him out.. I could see Pie replaced by a true leadoof hitter 4th OF.. Using Chone figgins would have been a great fit here as an OF, 3B, 2B or DH.. NOT having a non fielding DH would let us use Roberts, Reynolds, Bell or the 4th OF or even Hardy at DH to rest them for a team like us I think a good hitting DH that can play defensively would be of more value to buck.. IF we get the slugging 1B we so desparately need....

Dan's Reply: I don't think you can do minor-league incentives. I've never seen that anyway. ... Bobby Bundy likely will be in Bowie next year (maybe this year). That might be a little much for Dylan, 18, next year, but you never know. ... Scott's situation is going tobe interesting. He gets one more year of arbitration, so he will be expensive. Who knows what they do this offseason with him?

Jeff, it's amazing that seattle can give ichero the night off when they feel he is in a slump but the orioles can continue to pencil in a guy who couldn't hold his jock strap. People say that i am sick because i continue to harp on the difficulties of somebody, but for some reason all i really want is accountability. Something continues to be wrong with this whole situation.

A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer.
