First baseman Travis Ishikawa, a big league veteran who was having a strong season at Triple-A Norfolk, filed his written request to exercise the “opt-out” clause in his minor league contract on Sunday morning, according to his representation. If Ishikawa is not added to the Orioles' 25-man roster in the next 48 hours - by Tuesday morning - he will be given his release and will become a free agent eligible to sign with any team. He can still be traded during the 48-hour period, and the Orioles had been pursuing potential partners as the June 15 opt-out date loomed.

Washington. -- The Taking Clause of the Fifth Amendment (''nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation'') is not one of your more fashionable constitutional freedoms. But it has a cult following among conservatives, who see it as the vehicle for a revival of so-called economic rights. This does not mean anything so bleeding-heart as a right to food or shelter or a job. It means the right to conduct your business unmolested by the government.The Supreme Court has a couple of Taking cases this term.

In a story in yesterday's Carroll County section of The Sun, the chronology for certain events in Hampstead was incorrect. The town Planning and Zoning Commission gave preliminary approval to 220 homes in North Carroll Farms on Aug. 29. A resolution was introduced Sept. 13 in the Town Council to test the municipal adequate facilities clause in court. The confrontation between William Drummond and James Springer occurred at the Sept. 26 meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission.Amid a chorus of catcalls and jeers, Hampstead Town Council members this week rejected a resolution that would have put the town's adequate facilities clause to a test in Carroll County Circuit Court.

Less than a day after Maryland's new abortion-rights bill was signed into law, the debate continued yesterday over the measure's so-called conscience clause, the portion of the bill meant to hold harmless doctors and nurses who don't believe in abortion.Two delegates -- Brian K. McHale, D-Baltimore, and Timothy F. Maloney, D-Prince George's -- have drafted bills meant to clarify the wording in the new law.But the leaders of the House and the Senate do not appear anxious to reopen the contentious abortion debate -- even over so narrow an issue as the conscience clause.

The merging of great minds can lead to great things. Or, when baseball agents are negotiating with general managers, the results can be utterly absurd.With apologies to one-time Wisconsin Sen. William Proxmire, originator of the Golden Fleece Awards, we give you the Golden Incentive Clause Awards -- bizarre elements of contracts signed this off-season.1. At least 33 players have incentive clauses providing for a bonus if they're named the Most Valuable Player in a Division Series. That's great, except for one thing: MVP awards are not given for the Division Series.

The Bowie Baysox are celebrating Christmas in July with “Manny Claus,” and you can too. The first 1,000 fans over age 13 at Bowie's July 24 game at Prince George's Stadium will be given Manny Machado holiday bobblehead dolls . Machado is wearing a Santa Claus suit and holding a candy cane bat. The Baysox have not said whether Machado posed for the bobblehead in person, so I am imagining that he did until I'm told otherwise. The Orioles are in Seattle on the 24th, so it's safe to say the person in the Santa suit will not actually be Machado.  Machado spent 109 games in Bowie in 2012, with a .266/.352/.438 with 11 home runs and 59 RBI before he joined the Orioles for the team's playoff run. He was a Platinum Glove third baseman in 2013 despite his knee injury, though this wonderfully bizarre promotion might be the highlight of his season so far. Machado is batting coming off a five-hit day, and is batting .395 with four home runs in his last 10 games, though that streak was divided by a suspension for his bat-throwing incident that brought him scorn from across baseball.

On any given day, a teacher's mailbox is usually chock full of messages: leaflets advertising professional development, discount coupons for office supplies, publications from curriculum companies, and book club invitations. But under a contract that teachers are expected to vote on Thursday, they fear that such communication would cease - unless it comes from the Baltimore Teachers Union. City teachers are criticizing an unusual clause included in the proposed contract that appears to give the union the exclusive right to disseminate information via email or through teachers' mailboxes.

Thoughts of childhood Christmases flooded Wendy Winebrenner's mind this month when she opened her mailbox to find an envelope stuffed with gift certificates. Growing up in the O'Donnell Heights project in Baltimore, Winebrenner and her family depended on those donations from Santa Claus Anonymous to buy one another presents. But this year, Winebrenner, who is now raising her grandson in Middle River, sent the gift certificates back. Winebrenner, 49, had saved enough for the holiday.

This past weekend in Fairhaven, Mass., I had a chance to catch Mick Foley doing standup comedy. I have seen him before, at "The Improv" after Summerslam 2012 in Toronto, and at other places. This is the sixth time I have seen his act. Each time after the first have been a blend of jokes that work every time, plus some new material. Foley is very topical with his humor, as it pertains to events in his career. This past weekend's shows included jokes and stories from his WWE Hall of Fame induction and doing a promo with Ryback in the ring.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. " That's the full text of the First Amendment. But (with apologies to the old Far Side comic), this is what many in the press, academia and government would hear if you read it aloud: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, blah blah blah, or abridging the freedom of the press, blah blah blah blah.
