When Cuban outfielder Dariel Alvarez arrived in Bowie last year for the last few weeks of the Baysox season, manager Gary Kendall and hitting coach Butch Davis saw a player who was trying to fit a season's worth of slugging into a couple of home stands. With a calm off-season and a sense of comfort gained with the staff in Bowie, Alvarez has become one of the Orioles' top hitting prospects and, in one scout's eye, one of the best sleeper prospects in all of baseball. “He certainly isn't a finished product,” Kendall said last week . “He has good nights, he has bad nights, occasionally.

Running back James Jackson is doing an awful lot of talking. If he performs half as well as he is predicting, the Cleveland Browns may have found themselves a steal in the third round. Shortly after the Browns drafted him in April, Jackson proclaimed himself the franchise back. Since then, Jackson has compared himself to Indianapolis Colts superstar Edgerrin James, though Jackson says he has more speed. Jackson also said he would have been a first-round pick had he been healthy at the NFL combine.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Right-handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves left Orioles camp following Friday's workout so he could travel back to Mexico to obtain his work visa. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he is prepared for Aceves to be gone a week, but he's been told that the process could take just five to six days. Since Aceves pitched in the Mexican Pacific League and late in the Caribbean Series for Mexico in the offseason, Showalter said he isn't worried that Aceves will fall behind.

Long time coming Steve Svekis Sun Sentinel The spring and summer of discontent continues for some of college coaching's bigger names. Ohio State's football coach Jim Tressel and Tennessee men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl already had been overwhelmed by scandal. Now Butch Davis is done. The former Miami Hurricanes coach who has built a reputation of piling up NFL-caliber talent but not the commensurate number of wins, oversaw a North Carolina program now deeply embroiled in an NCAA investigation.

BEREA, Ohio - Ever since he started playing football, Andre Davis has repeatedly found himself a victim of circumstance. He finds much of it easy to laugh about now, four games into his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns. Just part of the routine for Davis, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound receiver with 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash, who has always seemed to have to separate himself from the pack. A quarter of the way through the season, Davis has 14 catches for 186 yards and four touchdowns.

The Orioles have decided to take advantage of a new rule that allows for the hiring of a seventh coach. Former big league catcher Einar Diaz, who was ticketed to be the field coach at Bowie, will now be an assistant major league coach, helping hitting coach Jim Presley as well as other members of Showalter's staff. “I've had Einar as a player [with the Texas Rangers in 2003],” Showalter said. “Einar is just a solid human being. He'll fit in real well to the clubhouse, pretty seamless.” Showalter said one of the most important things about Diaz is that he's a good batting practice pitcher, something needed with the departure of last year's third-base coach DeMarlo Hale.

CLEVELAND - The Ravens are playing another ambush game today. When they meet the Browns (3-2) here his afternoon, they'll play a team that they should beat, but one that's overachieving because it's fueled by the emotions and energy of its first-year coach, Butch Davis. Will the Ravens dominate or just get by? Or will they get ambushed by an inferior team? I imagine the defense will play with a newfound fervor after getting stomped by Green Bay last week, but no one knows for sure about the Ravens (3-2)

A DAY FOR rumbling and rambling: If the University of Miami played Ohio State 10 times for the college football national championship, the Hurricanes would win nine. But what would make the game interesting is the contrast in styles. First of all, Miami is the most talented team in the country. The Hurricanes could have five players selected in the first round of the NFL draft in April in running back Willis McGahee, receiver Andre Johnson and defensive linemen William Joseph, Jerome McDougle and Vince Wilfork.
