For decades, well-heeled contributors have been able to extend Maryland's campaign donation limits through a quirk in state law known to reform advocates as the "LLC loophole. " The General Assembly passed legislation in 2013 to close the loophole as of the next four-year election cycle, but campaign finance reports filed last week show it is enjoying a last hurrah in the 2014 governor's race. Here's how the loophole works: Maryland law limits an individual or company to a donation of $4,000 to a single candidate or $10,000 to all candidates combined.

Head coach John Harbaugh and other Ravens officials have been mostly mum about the process of finding a replacement for offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, and the characteristics the organization is looking for in its next hire. However, one thing has become abundantly clear: The Ravens are operating from a position of strength with a desirable job to offer and plenty of interested and qualified candidates. "I think it's an excellent position," said NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly, a former general manager of the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans.

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Charles Lollar's supporters often say that he is "the only candidate that can win," but his campaign finance report raises more questions than answers. (Disclosure: Red Maryland's editors have unanimously endorsed Larry Hogan for governor.) Lollar's gubernatorial campaign raised a paltry $65,329.67 during the last year, and he has only $5,731.35 available cash-on-hand according to the filings due to the Board of Elections yesterday. That's not the interesting part.

A political campaign is a contact sport that is waged on the financial as well as the psychological level. Much like any poker tournament, from the random house game to the World Series, winners and losers are decided on a variety of criteria including skill, strategy, the best hand and sometimes pure luck. With the backdrop of a poker table in mind, here is how I see the current main players among the Republicans seeking to be Maryland's next governor: Jay Bala (the new guy)

Seeking to highlight her green credentials in the race for governor, Del. Heather Mizeur took issue Friday with the environmental platform posted this week by the front-running ticket of Lt. Anthony Brown and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman. Mizeur's campaign issued a statement accusing Brown and Ulman of glossing over the dangers of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and making "vague statements" about how to exploit the energy deposits in western Maryland without harming the environment or people's health.

Even though three very worthy first-ballot candidates - Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas - were elected to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday, those who are selected for induction sometimes are overshadowed by those who aren't. The structure of the voting process - which limits voters to make 10 selections on their ballot  - has come under greater scrutiny every year, especially as the candidacies of those from the PED era, like Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, converge with strong first-ballot classes.

Choosing from a slate of three Democratic candidates who have all been friendly to its cause, Maryland's largest gay rights organization on Monday endorsed Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for governor. Equality Maryland interviewed Brown and each of his two Democratic opponents -- Attorney General Douglas Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur -- and decided Brown and his running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, would be the "most effective" allies in Annapolis, said Executive Director Carrie Evans.

In the hours before they handed out this year's Heisman Trophy, Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds dusted the snow off his shoulder pads and engineered the Midshipmen's 12th consecutive victory over Army. It wasn't his most artistic performance - and who could have expected a masterpiece on such an ugly afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field - but it completed an impressive regular season by a sophomore quarterback who might have been invited to New York as a finalist for college football's biggest individual prize if he played for a big-conference school.

An Ellicott City man who ran unsuccessfully for the Howard County Board of Education three times was sentenced Monday in federal court for impersonating a Secret Service agent in what lawyers on both sides agreed was a "sad" case. Robert D. Ballinger II, 47, who pleaded guilty to one criminal offense in September, was ordered to serve two years of probation and 200 hours of community service after making an emotional appeal to U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett. "I've made a big mistake in my life," said Ballinger, a former spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment who ran for school board in 2004, 2010 and 2012, advancing to the general election on his last two runs.

In most years, baseball's winter meetings mark the unofficial starting line of the annual offseason spending spree on free agents. But as the Orioles arrive at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort this week, pay day for several high-priced free agents has already come and gone. Meanwhile, the Orioles front-office members arrived in Florida on Sunday coming off a week in which they dealt 50-save closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland Athletics for unproven infielder Jemile Weeks and a projected $10-million of payroll relief.
