With the start of the NHL season and MLB playoffs running concurrently as the calendar turns to October, Sports Illustrated lumped them together with some regional, cross-sport cover coverage. One of those regional covers features Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones and Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, a somewhat unlikely pairing that doesn't make as much sense as the other cover boys. In the west, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Stanley Cup-winner Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings pair up. In the heartland, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and Olympic shootout hero T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues are featured.

Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is learning quickly that the retaliator is the one who typically gets caught in NFL altercations. Blocked after the whistle had blown by Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack, Mosley slugged the Pro Bowl blocker with a left hook that sent Mack flailing to the ground. Mosley was flagged for unnecessary roughness while Mack wasn't penalized. Now, Mosley is bracing for a fine from the league office. The first-round draft pick from Alabama was previously fined $8,268 for a late hit on Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard in his first NFL game.

Alex. Brown & Sons Inc. is Baltimore. The investment banking firm was instrumental in building this city and state. It financed early industries, it bankrolled the B&O Railroad. For that reason, confirmation that the firm is shopping for a new headquarters -- and does not rule out leaving downtown Baltimore -- is alarming.Whether Alex. Brown is serious or just driving a hard bargain, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke must do everything to make sure the firm stays here. Otherwise, Baltimore's downtown will suffer a terrible psychological and economic loss.

Alex. Brown Inc.'s decision to stay downtown and take up residence in a 30-story skyscraper that will carry its name are reasons for celebrating. If nothing rocks the deal, it should be a boon for the Baltimore Street corridor.The Alex. Brown move, by March 1997, would bring occupancy in Commerce Place to 80 percent. What a change. Since its opening in 1992 during the recession, Commerce Place has been largely empty. Bringing nearly 1,000 professionals into the building should prove a boost to the entire area.

Len made only 42 appearances for the Suns as a rookie, averaging 8.6 minutes per game.

J.J. Hardy, who sat out Friday's game because of “light lower back spasms,” was back in the lineup Saturday, playing shortstop and hitting sixth. He said he dealt with the spasms for two days and just wanted to get themresolved. He believes the rest helped greatly - especially because he didn't have to deal with wet and cold conditions Friday at Comerica Park. It's cold again here - the ballpark scoreboard says 38 degrees - but it is clear. “Definitely, a lot (better),” said Hardy, who missed two games last year with back spasms.

Steve Lombardozzi may not end up as a fulltime infielder for the Orioles. It doesn't matter. And maybe Alex Gonzalez's bat has been dipped into the fountain of youth and he ends up hitting this season like he did in winter ball and this spring. It doesn't matter. Monday's trade that sent the 37-year-old Gonzalez to the Detroit Tigers for the 25-year-old Lombardozzi was an absolute gem for the Orioles. And it's exactly why Dan Duquette signs anyone and everyone over the winter, no matter how much it may frustrate fans wanting big moves or writers wanting a daily break from the “they signed whom?
