John Maine has the right STUFF for the Orioles. The Rockies experiment with Wilson and Walker on the shelf. The Mets shuffle through the bottom of their rotation. These and other news and notes out of Baltimore, Colorado, and New York in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • #@#%$!: Go figure. In 1973, the American League makes a position perfectly suited for a guy like Jack Cust, and 31 years later, the Orioles still don't realize that, preferring to focus on what Cust can't do, rather than on what he can.

    The Snakes bury John Patterson, the Red Sox sort through a batch of soft tossers, the Marlins vie for a 25-catcher roster, and the Devil Rays solve all their problems by grabbing Al Martin and Damion Easley.

    ANAHEIM ANGELS Placed RHP Al Levine on the 15-day DL (shoulder tendinitis), retroactive to 6/27; recalled RHP John Lackey from Salt Lake.

    Recalled RHP Matt Wise from Salt Lake; optioned RHP John Lackey to Salt Lake. [6/25]
