Lineup update: Alex Cintron originally was scheduled to start at second base and give Brian Roberts back-to-back days off (with the offday), but he had to be scratched with a case of food poisoning, which forced Roberts back into the starting lineup.

Roster update: The Orioles activated reliever Greg Aquino from the disabled list and designated him for assignment, which will gain the club another spot on the 40-man roster for any non-roster September call-ups.

If Nick Markakis doesn't get a Gold Glove in Right Field, there is no justice. He just recorded his 15th assist. At some point, the league is going to learn not to run on him.

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
