Kansas City Royals left-hander John Bale, already on the disabled list because of a tight shoulder, broke his pitching hand punching a door at the team's hotel in Cleveland. A club spokesman said Bale, a former Oriole, informed team officials he had pain in his hand after striking the door Friday. X-rays were taken during Saturday night's 4-2 win over the Indians, revealing the fracture on the side of his hand. Bale returned to Kansas City, Mo., yesterday morning. He will be examined by team doctors, possibly today.

Christian Bale's rant against the cinematographer who stepped into his sight lines during the filming of Terminator Salvation might have been unforgivable, but it is understandable, especially after you see the pounding and lugubrious finished film. Some actors gas on about dates and sports or crack abysmal jokes but click into character as soon as the director calls "Action!" Others live their characters even during lunch. Early on, Bale received tons of admiring press for being one of the latter.

I find it very hard to believe the hatred of Sgt. Robert Bales in William Smith's recent letter ("Don't pity Sgt. Bales," March 29). Yes, the killing of innocent men, women and children was wrong, and my prayers go out to them. But what about the thousands of innocents who were killed on9/11? What about the thousands of our military service members who have been killed or injured fighting those who would kill us without thinking twice? It takes great strength and conviction to don a uniform in order to protect this country.

The dominance that Calvin Maduro exhibited this spring earned him a place on the Orioles' Opening Day pitching staff. It didn't, however, assure him of a job beyond the first two weeks of the season. He vanished as suddenly as he arrived. The Orioles outrighted Maduro to Triple-A Rochester before last night's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, with John Bale being called up to take his place. The move gives manager Mike Hargrove three left-handers in the bullpen. It also continues what has been a strange and frustrating segment of Maduro's career.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - For someone whose immediate future in baseball is so unsettled, John Bale couldn't be more relaxed. Maybe it's the surgery that relieved the pain and stiffness in his left arm, or the daughter who recently turned 1. Perhaps it's the distance of last winter's horror in Venezuela, or knowing that his father is in good health. It isn't until all the possibilities are examined that it becomes so clear just how full Bale's plate was last spring as he tried locating one during games.

If John Bale doesn't sweat the details, like whether he'll move into the Orioles' rotation this weekend or if he'll impress the club enough to stay out of the minors, it's because of a perspective obtained in the past few months. He's feared for his life, celebrated the birth of a child, reveled in the glory of his first big-league win and prayed for a father near death. All of it since a few minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve. All of it putting baseball in its proper place. Bale continues to receive consideration for Saturday's start in Minnesota, with Chuck McElroy expected to stay in the bullpen after three appearances in the fifth slot.

The Orioles didn't make it through two games without pulling off their first trade, sending pitcher John Bale to the New York Mets last night for outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. Bale had cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester yesterday. He was designated for assignment following Saturday's exhibition game in Louisville, Ky. To make room for Matthews, the Orioles optioned outfielder Larry Bigbie to Rochester after last night's 1-0 loss to the New York Yankees. They cleared space for him on the 40-man roster by transferring Chris Richard, who's recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, to the 60-day disabled list.

SEATTLE - Jose Mercedes has made his last start as an Oriole. Manager Mike Hargrove confirmed before last night's game that last season's 14-game winner and second-half marvel will work out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season and rookie left-hander John Bale will be assigned his spot in the rotation. The move comes one day after Mercedes surrendered six runs in a three-inning start in Friday's 10-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners. The adjustment leaves the Orioles with three rookies - Bale, Josh Towers and Rick Bauer - in their rotation.

Susan Reimer seems extremely misguided; her sympathy for Sgt. Robert Bales, who massacred men, women and children, is an enigma to me ("War makes you crazy, both there and here," March 26). But since these are her feelings, why is she ashamed to admit them? Geraldine Segal, Randallstown

Susan Reimer 's column on the U.S. soldier accused of murdering 17 Afghan civilians was the most outrageous and offensive nonsense I have ever read ("War makes you crazy, both there and here," March 26). She feels nothing for the innocent, murdered children of Afghanistan but feels "sympathy" for Sgt. Robert Bales. Is this supposed to be a joke? Because it sure isn't funny. Like all decent Americans, I think Robert Bales is a subhuman worm. He should not only be executed for his crimes, he should be turned over to the Afghans for whatever cruel method of execution they can think up. Nothing the Afghans could do to him could possibly be too horrible.

To get beyond all the spin from both sides about the state budget, take a quick look at Appendix F in the back of the budget highlights book Gov. Martin O'Malley released Tuesday. That's where you find the state's general fund summary and a forecast of what is likely to happen to Maryland's finances over the next five years. It is the Rosetta Stone of state budgets. Here's what it says this year: Governor O'Malley's spending plan would, if all goes according to plan, leave $274 million in the state's bank account at the end of fiscal 2011.

With Josh Towers unable to make another start this season, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove apparently will reinsert Jose Mercedes into the rotation. The search for a replacement has taken Hargrove to where he began, a pitcher once careening toward 20 losses. Towers' season ended when he broke the ring finger on his right hand hitting a dugout phone after coming out of Thursday's game in Toronto. He had the ring and middle fingers taped together yesterday. Mercedes hasn't pitched since Sept.

Orioles utility man Melvin Mora met with manager Mike Hargrove in recent days and came away feeling more content with his role. Mora had said he wouldn't be satisfied coming off the bench and starting three to five times a week, as Hargrove had specified. But Hargrove explained to Mora that he will get plenty of at-bats this season, especially considering he was the first option off the bench if another player got injured. Mora didn't have to wait until the season for it to happen. The Orioles placed Marty Cordova on the disabled list with a strained right quadriceps muscle, and Mora became the club's Opening Day starter in left field.
