If i'm the Orioles, I work something out with them even though I have the right to play at that time. Maybe it's a bit of an inconvenience, but it's the classy thing to do. A regular season game is obviously not as significant as the ring ceremony and everything it would represent for the Ravens, and I would hope that if the roles were ever reversed I would get the same treatment.

**Edit** I just read that article. It looks like the Orioles genuinley tried to accomodate the Ravens and it just didnt work. I retract my statement
I dont see how any Sox fan would want them to have even the slightest inconvenience
and competitive disadvantage because of tradition and fairness to another team in a different sport in another city. It wasn't just an Orioles issue. The White Sox had important rights here.
