The Orioles received good and bad news on the ever-puzzling health of left fielder Nolan Reimold, who has been out of all baseball activites for nearly seven weeks with a bulging disk in his neck. An MRI showed that the disk has shrunen and the inflammation is gone - the good news - but the club now has no reason why Reimold is still experiencing spots of tingling in his left arm and hasn't been able to regain his strength. So Reimold - who has spent his DL time in and out of doctors offices - will now see a neurosurgeon to see if his problems are nerve-related.

Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold will be sidelined for at least two more games with a bulging disk in his back, but the club is hopeful that the diagnosis explains the health problems the 28-year-old has been experiencing this season. Including Tuesday night, Reimold has missed six of the club's past 12 games, including four consecutive April 21-25, because of severe neck spasms. Although he was dealing with lingering neck discomfort, Reimold had started the Orioles' past five games, but after getting to the team hotel after Monday's contest, Reimold experienced tingling in his hands and contacted head athletic trainer Richie Bancells . Reimold "had some tingling and numbness in his fingers, which is common with a bulging disk," manager Buck Showalter said.

Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold has a bulging disk in his back - which the team believes may have been what has caused the spasms in his neck and tingling and numbness in his fingers. Manager Buck Showalter said Reimold has been treated in Baltimore with a Medrol Dosepak that is designed to alleviate inflammation. If all works as hoped, Reimold could join the team for the series against the Boston Red Sox that begins Friday, Showalter said. “We're going to try a Medrol Dosepak to see if we can get the swelling to go down.

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.

As teachers at the Renaissance Institute, retirees Sidney Leibovitz and Gregory Halpin fascinate their adult students with history courses ranging from the Chinese Revolution to French Connections. Their own histories are fascinating, too. Leibovitz's love of history dates to his service in the Army's 99th Infantry Division, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Halpin is also a former longtime director of what is now the Maryland Port Administration - and he's was a radio newscaster in the late 1940s, when television was in its infancy.
