Luke Jones is the Ravens and Orioles beat reporter for WNST BaltimorePositive.com and is a PFWA member. His mind is consumed with useless sports knowledge, pro wrestler promos, and movie quotes, but he struggles to remember where he put his phone. Luke's favorite sports memories include being one of the thousands of kids who waited to get Cal Ripken's autograph after Orioles games in the summer of 1995, attending the Super Bowl XXXV victory parade with his father in the pouring rain, and watching the Terps advance to the Final Four at the Carrier Dome in 2002.

A new chapter in a story that broke late last night surfaced this morning when ESPN.com’s Buster Olney offered a reply from Orioles owner Peter Angelos, who stated “Cal Ripken did not offer to become part of the Oriole organization in any secondary position.”

Of course, this reply stems from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal revealing last night that Angelos had declined an offer from Ripken to join the organization.

As Drew Forrester wisely pointed out this morning, it’s very difficult to offer an informed assessment on the situation without the specifics of the supposed discussion. With Angelos denying the story, it only clouds the picture further until Ripken himself offers comment on the report.

That being said, there seems to be far too much smoke here to simply take Angelos at his word in denying the reported discussion.

Stay tuned, and at the very least, this story is certainly more intriguing than anything happening on the field right now.

Of course, it doesn’t make it a good story either.
