Jodie Lau, a colleague at the Arizona Republic with whom I worked a few years back in a Maynard Institute program, writes to say that she has established an award named after me. Now with Gannett's Phoenix design studio, she has established a weekly headline writing award that will culminate in a monthly award. The award is the JohnnyMac, and the trophy is a stuffed leopard wearing a polka-dot bow tie. I might not be the most wholesome influence on headline writers, having once published at The Cincinnati Enquirer the headline "Every little breeze seems to whisper feces," about a residential neighborhood in Detroit troubled by odors from a sewage treatment plant.

The Baltimore Sun won an Online Journalism Award Saturday for Matthew Hay Brown's 2013 article, " Breaking the Silence ," about American servicemen who were sexually assaulted while serving in the military. Women in uniform are more likely to be sexually assaulted than men. But because there are many more men than women in the military, there are more assaults against men than against women. And when the victim is a man, Brown's reporting showed, a perpetrator is far less likely to be punished.

Now the question is whether the pending free agent will return next year to have a chance to win it again. “Hopefully I stay here, we work something out. Like I said before, I understand they're going to do whatever they think is better for the team,” Cruz, 34, said. “I love it here. I love the fans, I love my teammates.” Cruz, who leads the major leagues in home runs with 39 and is second in the American League with 106 RBIs, said before Sunday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox that he'll think about his contract situation once his season is completed.
