Huff breaking out

Maybe Aubrey Huff should thank Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon for helping him get into a groove at the plate. He got off to a slow start, but seemed to find his stroke poking a couple of balls into left field to defeat the Ray's exaggerated infield shift over the weekend at Camden Yards.

In tonight's game at The Ballpark at Arlington, he has gone the other way repeatedly on the way to a breakout four-hit performance that includes three singles, a double and three RBI. And he could get up one more time.

Adam Loewen with a sore shoulder? He moves to the OF/1B due to arm injuries and he still can't stay healthy. Some people's bodies just aren't suited to playing professional sports.

Any reason why the Orioles don't put Mora on the DL and let him heal properly?

dude, c'mon breezy ZOMG NICK WHOA

What a game. One blogger on ESPN summed it up best, "Huff or Wiggington may end up pitching by the end of this series."

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.
