I am dismayed that Mr. Angelos is claiming that "the Orioles are not in a position to compete on an economic level with baseball's big-revenue teams" ( "Not affording a free-agent pitcher like Bronson Arroyo could cost the Orioles," Feb. 8). I guess having 2.4 million fans with the resultant parking and concession revenue, along with MASN revenue, puts the Orioles at a competitive disadvantage. Mr. Angelos should know that I, for one, will stop attending Orioles games because it is obvious that my desire to support the team is offset by Mr. Angelos' inability to spend any money on free agents to help make it competitive.

Even before they signed it, a handful of Major League Baseball owners expressed deep misgivings about a 2005 agreement negotiated by Orioles owner Peter Angelos establishing conditions under which the Montreal Expos would move and become the Washington Nationals. The owners, all members of baseball's executive council, sounded like customers having second thoughts after buying something from an aggressive salesman. They questioned whether Major League Baseball ceded too much to the Orioles for their agreement to share the club's exclusive television territory, according to the minutes of a March 28, 2005, conference call released last week as an exhibit in a court case.

A Baltimore City Circuit Court judge has dismissed a lawsuit by Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos that challenged the city's plans for the long-delayed Superblock project. In the decision, signed last week but announced by the state on Tuesday, Judge John Philip Miller wrote that Angelos' 120 W. Fayette Street LLLP "failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. " In the lawsuit, Angelos contended that the head of the Maryland Historical Trust did not have the authority to act for the trust when he approved preliminary plans for the west side redevelopment in December.

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Sunday that the team's medical staff believes he tore his left Achilles tendon early in the second quarter of the team's 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 11th-year veteran suffered the injury on a play that occurred away from the ball. He said he believed his foot was stepped on as he ran. Immediately after the play, Hall lay, writhing in pain, near the right side of the field, the opposite side of the field from where Eagles running back Darren Sproles had been tackled.

Maryland's highest court has cleared the way for the city to move forward with its plans for the long-delayed $152 million Superblock project. The Maryland Court of Appeals dismissed Friday a lawsuit by Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos that challenged the project. In a 4-3 decision, the court said Angelos did not have standing to sue, affirming a Baltimore Circuit Court ruling to dismiss the complaint. Long stymied by legal challenges, the project involves construction of a 269-unit apartment building, a 650-space underground parking garage and shops called Lexington Square near Lexington and Howard streets.

Baltimore lawyer and Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos faces potential competition from other bidders interested in buying bankrupt Rosecroft Raceway as well as opposition from state officials to legalizing slot machines at the Prince George's County horse track. Gov. Martin O'Malley said Wednesday that he is focused on getting slots casinos at the five locations approved by voters in 2008 up and running "before we talk about expanding" gambling at other places. And despite Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller's support for slots at the Rosecroft harness racetrack, other state lawmakers might not be ready to reopen the debate.

A Baltimore circuit judge rejected Wednesday a plan by the law firm of Peter G. Angelos to combine more than 10,000 asbestos-related lawsuits, questioning whether the cases caught in a massive backlog have enough in common to be heard in concert. "This Court is well aware of the need to provide justice for the large number of parties whose cases still languish on this docket," Judge John M. Glynn wrote. "But the current proposal is entirely too vague and unsupported to inspire confidence.

The law firm of Peter G. Angelos has scaled back its request for a Baltimore judge to group together almost 13,000 asbestos cases, asking the court to look only at cases where the plaintiffs alleged they contracted cancer as a result of their exposure to the poisonous material. The modified plan would still involve lumping together 4,600 cases, according to recent filings in the case. The remaining cases, which involve plaintiffs that have lung diseases other than cancer, could be handled in a similar way later on, Angelos lawyer Theodore M. Flerlage, Jr. wrote in court documents.

Angelo Gatto spoke softly and carried a small baton, but the slender 92-year-old conductor had no trouble getting respect from the musicians of the Maryland Youth Symphony Orchestra rehearsing for Saturday's milestone concert. The milestone is Gatto's final concert as music director of the orchestra, which he founded 50 years ago. During that time, he mentored an estimated 3,000 students from the area, inspiring many to pursue musical careers. Alumni can be found in such major orchestras as the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and on podiums leading ensembles of their own. To the players rehearsing at the Center for the Arts on the Catonsville campus of the Community College of Baltimore County, Gatto offered his trademark instruction: "Don't just play notes.

HOUSTON -- Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said before Friday's Civil Rights Game that he sees Baltimore as a leading candidate to host the 2016 All-Star Game. “Yes, they're certainly a very, very viable candidate,” Selig said before the Orioles' game against the Houston Astros. “When you think back, Camden Yards really started this whole ballpark expansion, and I believe that's one of the primary reasons for baseball attendance being at the historic high that it is today.” Selig, who is retiring at the end of this season, will select the locations for the 2016 and 2017 All-Star Games, and said he hopes to continue alternating the game's site between leagues.

Angelo's pizza shop has closed in Hampden. On Thursday, the longtime operators of the pizza shop were evicted by the building's owners, 36 Keswick LLC. "It's just been a nightmare," said Angelo Pizza, who purchased the pizza business from his mother in 1988. "Things just started getting good in the last six months. " Angelo's had closed once before, back in May 2011, but Pizza was able to reopen in just over a month after getting a loan from a regular customer. This time, Pizza said, it looks like the end of Angelo's.

As the Orioles near the end of the most tumultuous season in their storied history, club major- ity owner Peter G. Angelos said he is looking to the future while contemplating how a promising season unraveled so completely. "It was very disappointing obviously and, in many senses a calamity of problems that were totally unexpected," Angelos said yesterday while publicly assessing the season for the first time. Angelos declined to call 2005 - which included 62 days in first place, a steroids controversy involving star first baseman Rafael Palmeiro, the drunken-driving charges against projected team ace Sidney Ponson and the firing of manager Lee Mazzilli - the franchise's worst season.
