The Baltimore Grand Prix lurched toward its starting line Thursday as downtown was consumed by the chaos of last-minute preparations for the three-day event. Wide-scale road closings began to take effect, preparing the race course along downtown streets for high-speed practice runs. And that forced businesses, schools and residents to adjust routines to cope with the blocked roads and walkways, public transit changes and increased traffic near the track. But getting downtown Baltimore to grind to a halt was no easy task.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.

Right-hander Kevin Gregg took his place in the parade of major league pitchers who worked in Sunday's "B" game, but didn't take it personally. The Orioles have to schedule extra spring games to get enough innings for all the pitchers in camp, and it wasn't like Gregg was being relegated to a lower class of competition. He pitched between possible No. 1 starter Tommy Hunter, who apparently has won his bout with lower back soreness, and left-hander Zach Britton, who was testing his injured shoulder for the first time in a game.

A grievance filed by Baltimore County teachers last fall over having to work extra-long hours because of new education initiatives has been resolved, school and teacher's union officials announced Friday. The grievance, filed in November on behalf of the county's 8,700 teachers, complained that their workload had ballooned, in large part because lesson plans had not been provided until just weeks before they were to be taught. Abby Beytin, president of the Teachers Association of Baltimore County, said that county school Superintendent Dallas Dance addressed teachers' concerns by giving them more notice of changes this academic year in curriculum and other educational initiatives.

TORONTO - Catcher Caleb Joseph has raised his batting average 39 points over his last 10 games. And he also has given the club an unexpected power surge recently with a home run in each of his last three games. After hitting a solo home run in the Orioles' 9-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, Joseph said he made some recent adjustments at the plate that have helped him square up on pitches. “I've just been working on some mechanical things, and they're slowly starting to show their head in terms of results,” Joseph said.

All season Larry Washington's powerful legs and shoulders caused unexpected adjustments to the pads and mouthpieces of opposing tacklers. Unseen and not as hurtful, but just as vexing, were the adjustments made by the Randallstown players and coaching staff on the way to their state 4A football championship.When their 13-0 season ended Saturday with a 21-12 win over Wootton, the No. 1-ranked Rams completed the process of synchronization begun when coach John Buchheister replaced Ken Johnson, who moved to Chesapeake.

Out of the spotlight of the Medicare debate, the nation's private health plans have obtained a series of technical changes in the overhaul approved by Congress that stand to reap them billions of dollars.One adjustment in the Medicare legislation would raise to 8 percent next year's increase in the amount that private plans are reimbursed by the government for treating Medicare patients. In earlier versions of the legislation, passed separately by the House and Senate, the rate would have been several percentage points lower, making the reimbursements billions of dollars less.

In its latest move to rein in rising hospital costs, the state Health Services Cost Review Commission yesterday voted to make it tougher for hospitals to receive automatic inflation adjustments.Hospitals did not oppose the change, but asked that it be phased in more slowly. Commissioners, however, complained that costs in Maryland are outstripping those in other states, and voted to act more quickly."When your house is on fire, you have to take strong and quick measures," said commission member C. James Lowthers.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees was having a conversation with league officials before a recent preseason game when he jokingly said what many defensive backs are thinking these days. His point, though, was valid. "There is more contact now in the NBA than the NFL," Pees said, laughing. "What we are being called for is not a foul in the NBA. If you look in the paint, those guys are pushing, shoving and elbowing each other. "I'm all for safety in the game where they prohibit launching and helmet to helmet, but I don't know where we're headed from here.

Ravens secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo saw the yellow flag fly into the air and immediately sought an explanation from an official nearby. Spagnuolo knew there was contact between cornerback Chykie Brown and a San Francisco 49ers wide receiver during a one-on-one drill early in Saturday's practice. What he didn't know was whether the penalty flag was for illegal contact, defensive holding or perhaps even offensive pass interference. Such uncertainty among players and coaches has been commonplace early in the preseason as teams struggle to adjust to the NFL's vow to make illegal contact and defensive holding a "point of emphasis" during the 2014 season.

When the Ravens signed suspended safety Will Hill a week ago, skepticism surrounded his past conduct, not his football skills. Since his arrival, Hill has been impressive enough that Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has lamented that the former New York Giants starter is suspended for the first six games for his third violation of NFL drug policies. "[I wish] he was eligible for the first game," Pees said. "I'll tell you what: That guy is really a good, good football player.

Andrew Miller arrived in Baltimore Friday morning with a full beard. He had come from the Boston Red Sox, where the growth of facial hair is welcomed, and a few players in the Orioles clubhouse hoped he would remain untrimmed. But Miller, the Orioles' newly acquired left-handed reliever, caught word quickly that beards "were not expected here," he said. When he met with the media about three hours before Friday's first pitch he was, for the most part, clean-shaven. "I want to fit in," Miller said.

Terrence Brooks said Wednesday that transitioning from his previous role with the national champion Florida State Seminoles to a spot with the Ravens has proven difficult, though team activities this spring helped the rookie safety get familiar with his new home. “It was a little hard at first,” Brooks said. “Coming into a new system is definitely going to be challenging. But for the most part, with more studying and just being a student of the game, I feel like I've got a good grasp on how this defense is and the scheme.

Baltimore County police officers and deputy sheriffs have agreed to forgo cost-of-living adjustments and pay more into their pensions in exchange for job security. Under contracts ratified by the unions that represent 2,000 employees in the police and sheriff's departments, members may not be laid off or furloughed at least through June 2012, officials said. They will receive previously scheduled increment and longevity increases, but not cost-of-living adjustments. The firefighters union and several others have reached similar agreements with the county, subject to ratification by their members, county officials said.

The Braves lead the series three games to two, but the tide of history could turn against them tonight.

Before last night's game against the Detroit Tigers, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked about what it would take for Steve Clevenger to prove himself in his new role. With Matt Wieters on the disabled list to rest his injured elbow, Clevenger will get the opportunity to show what he can do as the team's primary catcher. The Mount St. Joseph graduate saw some time as the Chicago Cubs' starter in 2012, but he is set to have his biggest test to date since joining the Orioles.
