From Ravens to Orioles

Thank you for supporting our journalism. This article is available exclusively for our subscribers, who help fund our work at The Baltimore Sun.

A few suggestions for the Ravens before the last man leaves the complex and turns out the lights:

1). Keep A.D


2). Apologize to Mike Anderson and Derrick Mason. They were both wronged, in different ways.

3). Draft a speedy running back.


4). If you need 8 yards, don't throw a 5-yard pass.

Please stop doing that.

I'm picking Colts-Saints in the Super Bowl. I know the Bears will be tough at home, especially if the weather is nasty, but their defense can't handle all the Saints' weapons, and Rex Grossman is...well...Rex Grossman.

In case you missed the weekend transactions, the Red Sox signed Alex Ochoa to a minor league contract.

Yes, he's still playing.

Maybe they'll trade him for Bobby Bo.

Tomorrow is the deadline for the Orioles and their arbitration-eligible players - Brian Roberts, Erik Bedard and Corey Patterson - to exchange salary proposals.

And that's pretty much all the news coming out of the warehouse.


The Orioles have engaged in talks with Roberts' agent, but nothing seems hot at the moment.
