It might seem counterintuitive, but constantly speaking ill of your political opponent can work to his advantage. And that might be what's happened in the Maryland gubernatorial campaign between Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, the Democratic candidate, and real estate executive Larry Hogan, the Republican.

A fast-rising Adam Jones was fifth in the outfield balloting for the American League when results were last released Monday, and MLB tweeted today that he's been gaining on Toronto's Melky Cabrera and Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes, both of whom were ahead of him and one of whom will likely occupy a third starting spot with Angels' Mike Trout and Blue Jays' Jose Bautista.

At Wednesday's media availability for UFC 172 in Baltimore, one fighter stood out among the others -- middleweight Luke Rockhold, a guy with a movie star name and looks to match. At times, Rockhold seems to be more of a politician than a fighter, often pointing into the video camera to give his answers, as if he was strumming up votes to run for office as he was discussing his Saturday bout with Tim Boetsch. (It's among the five pay-per-view fights headlined by the lightheavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira.)
