On Thursday night, Rex Ryan made waves when he ripped the Baltimore Orioles for a scheduling conflict that has the Ravens opening up the 2013 season on the road.

"You've got 81 at home, maybe you could have done the right thing and given one up," Ryan said.

Less than 24 hours later, O's manager Buck Showalter issued a rebuttal to the Jets coach: Worry about yourself.

"I'd be a little more concerned about Nov. 24 when the Jets come here and try to figure out a way to beat the Ravens," Showalter said, via the Associated Press.

Showalter, who's managed the Orioles since 2010, contends that, unlike Ryan, he doesn't dabble in another team's business.

"I try to stay out of things I don't know about. I would stay in what is my area of supposed expertise," he said.

Considering the Jets are facing a rebuilding year -- and projected by many to finish under .500 -- Ryan would be wise to let it end on this note. It's not like the defending champion Ravens need him to fight a "battle" that's becoming less newsworthy by the day.
