Balti-sports: An eclectic mix

Today's sports schedule in the greater Baltimore area is all over the map. The big soccer game between Inter Milan and Manchester City is expected to draw more than 40,000 to M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens drew a record crowd (12,000) to their public workouts on Friday and are expecting similar numbers today. And, of course, a solid crowd is expected for Maryland Championship Wrestling's Shamrock Cup event tonight at the New Green Room in Dundalk.

The Orioles play the Kansas City Royals on the road, so you could stay home and watch them on TV, but I think the evening will be a ratings challenge for MASN, especially after last night's disheartening collapse.

Self-promotion dept: It's a nice day, but why risk skin cancer by going outside. I'll be talking sports all afternoon on WBAL (1090AM) and WBAL.com, so tune in at noon and join in the conversation. Obviously, we'll be talking about a very eventful week for the Orioles and a discouraging weekend for the Ravens. Orioles beat reporter Jeff Zrebiec has had a very busy week himself, but he'll will check in from KC to update us ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline for making trades without passing players through waivers.
