If one party declares war on the second party and the second party doesn't know about it, is it really a war?That's the question at the center of the radio talk show "battle" between Nestor Aparicio and Josh Lewin, whose nightly programs each air from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.Aparicio, who works at WWLG (1360 AM), has been lobbing verbal grenades this week at Lewin, who's over at WBAL (1090 AM), claiming the newcomer has stolen his material, especially the concepts of football predictions contests, music bursts going into and out of commercials and trivia contests.

You say you've had it with the Orioles this time. You've had it with nine straight losing seasons. With another meaningless September. With a jewel of a ballpark that sits empty and forlorn, except when it's invaded by thousands of beered-up Yankees and Red Sox fans who spit peanut shells on your shoes and flirt with your girl and spill out onto Eutaw Street bellowing and high-fiving each other whenever their team clobbers your team, which is pretty much always.

Jennifer Royle, a sportscaster at 105.7 The Fan, confirmed Monday that she has dropped her defamation lawsuit against Nestor Aparicio and two of his colleagues at radio station WNST. “All I wanted was for the harassment to stop,” Royle said. “Nestor wrote on his blog that he will never speak my name again. It looks like I won. " But Aparicio doesn't see it that way. "If she wants to go around proclaiming victory,' she's wrong," he said in a telephone interview Monday.

It's not exactly Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth following each other in the New York Yankees' lineup, but WWLG (1360 AM) will have an interesting 1-2 sports talk punch, now that Stan "The Fan" Charles has agreed to bring his show over to follow "Nasty" Nestor Aparicio.Charles, who announced last month that he will leave WCBM (680 AM) in late March, yesterday unveiled plans to shift his 10 p.m. to 1 a.m program up the dial, beginning Opening Day (April 3), assuming, of course, there ever is another baseball season.

All-sports-talk radio has returned to Baltimore's airwaves, courtesy of the man who first brought the format to town, Nestor Aparicio. Aparicio, whose original foray at running WNST (1570 AM) ended last August after a year, is back at the same spot on the dial and with the same format. However, unlike last year, when he was leasing the time from the station's co-owner, David Eppler, Aparicio is heading up a consortium of investers to buy the station. "When all is said and done, I'll be a majority owner.

Call it the dress rehearsal before the dress rehearsal. Yesterday, five days before their preseason opener and in front of about 2,000 fans at Western Maryland College's Bair Stadium, the Ravens staged a mock game.The hourlong "game" featured limited contact, no tackling. It simulated game conditions, beginning with the playing of the national anthem. Players wore shorts. Coaches wore headsets. The Ravens substituted players freely, mixing first-teamers with third-teamers. And for four, 10-minute quarters, the clock ran continuously.

Jamison Hensley Steelers 30-3 Even if the Steelers are playing their backups, the Ravens are still playing their third-stringers. Edward Lee Steelers, 41-9 No Willie Parker, no problem for the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger might toss five touchdown passes - again. Rick Maese Steelers, 27-23 I say the Ravens give Erik Bedard a shot at the quarterback job, and if that doesn't take, hold tryouts at a carnival dunking booth. Don Markus Steelers, 21-7 Even without Willie Parker, the Steelers will have too much - and too much at stake - for a team that is down to second- and third-stringers.

This all could have been avoided so easily. One side wouldn't be in an uproar about it. Another side wouldn't be issuing explanations and justifications. The first side wouldn't be responding. And I wouldn't be writing about the whole matter. Here's the deal: The owner of WNST (1570 AM), one of Baltimore's two all-sports radio stations, was denied a media credential by the Orioles. Other employees of his station were credentialed. The Orioles could argue that the owner, Nestor Aparicio, isn't really serving in a journalistic/commentary role that merits a press pass.

What we have here is a three-way split among Baltimore radio's Titans of Talk -- Nestor Aparicio, Stan "The Fan" Charles and Jeff Rimer. There is a difference in philosophy.You probably suspected that, though. Rimer long ago revealed himself a Kantian, someone who holds that the content of knowledge comes a posteriori from sense perception, but its form is determined by a priori categories of the mind. Aparicio, of course, is a nihilist, denying the existence of any basis for knowledge or truth.
