SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has agreed to a $519,000 contract renewal for 2014 -- slightly above this year's league minimum of $500,000 -- but the 21-year-old is somewhat disappointed with the figure. Machado will also receive an additional $100,000 bonus for winning the 2013 Platinum Glove Award as the American League's best defender. “It is disappointing, but at the end of the day, you just have to go out and play,” said Machado, who made $495,000 last season and received a $25,000 bonus for making his first All-Star team. Similarly, the Platinum Glove bonus will not be calculated as part of his 2014 base salary.

When a three-day strike by local longshoremen forced the 718-foot CCNI Antofagasta to sail out of the port of Baltimore without unloading its container cargo, the effects rippled across the country and overseas. Several shipping lines scrambled to reroute dozens of Baltimore-bound containers north again after the ship brought them back to Cartagena, Colombia, according to documents obtained from the Maryland Port Administration through a Maryland Public Information Act request. Chicago customers expecting to reuse Antofagasta containers emptied in Baltimore instead had to order them by rail from Savannah, Ga. The Antofagasta burned nearly 40,000 tons of additional fuel to make up for lost time and arrive on schedule at the Panama Canal.

Maybe she wasn't Hon material after all. Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager and her husband, Henry Hager, vacated their Federal Hill home more than two years ago, after the power couple left Baltimore for the Big Apple. But as long as they still owned property here -- and in particular, an "exquisite 3br-2.5ba end townhouse w/garage in federal hill, circa 1880" according to the listing on the real estate site homesnap.com -- we held out hope that the Hagers would once again succumb to the charms of Charm City.

The tentative award to the low bidder for the upgrade of the area's water meters may not prove to be for the best ( "Water meter bid is backed," Nov. 5). Wouldn't it be a prudent for the award to be predicated on the successful low bidder to prove themselves by modifying a small section of the city's meters before tackling the entire area? In my humble opinion and based on what I read, it reminded me of the old saying, "When in doubt, do nothing. " Bernard E. Helinski, Baltimore

Bill Bleich calls the teachers' signing stipend a "bribe" ("Reject the contract," Oct. 13) He teaches English and drama, but he does not know that a bribe is something given to induce a person to do wrong or commit a crime. He says merit pay will pressure teachers to be less supportive of each other and act in a more self-centered way and then immediately and inconsistently goes on to say teachers are more highly motivated than administrators and selflessly devote large amounts of time to student activities.

The FBI is investigating a former University of Maryland contract worker who said he took College Park administrators' personal information from the campus network and posted online about the stunt to draw attention to major security flaws. David Helkowski said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun that he noticed vulnerabilities months before a February attack exposed nearly 300,000 sensitive records. Frustrated that issues continued even after he raised concerns while working on a university website, Helkowski said, he took the data to raise alarm.

The Maryland General Assembly approved legislation Thursday that will provide new protections for motorists from erroneous tickets and other speed camera abuses, sending the bill to the governor for his expected signature. The compromise measure - two years in the making - requires jurisdictions to employ ombudsmen to void erroneous tickets before a trial and bans the so-called bounty system in which contractors are rewarded financially for issuing more tickets, though it does not apply to current contracts.

Ubaldo Jimenez's baseball career is well-documented. His ups and downs in the major leagues have been thoroughly dissected. A wunderkind who once was among baseball's best young pitchers, Jimenez's career trajectory plummeted dramatically in the past few seasons before he resuscitated it with a tremendous second half last year. And that led the Orioles to give the 30-year-old right-hander a four-year, $50 million deal, the most lucrative contract the club has ever handed out to a free-agent pitcher.

It's worth a shot Juan C. Rodriguez Sun Sentinel Should they try? Absolutely. Would they be successful? Probably not. Alex Rodriguez has been an on-field and off-field migraine for the Yankees. What remains on his contract - five years and $114 million - is a crippling figure for most franchises. If they were to somehow remove the Rodriguez albatross it won't be because he purchased banned substances. The Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program precludes teams from taking punitive action beyond penalties the Commissioner's Office imposes.

At the same time, he has presided over a major reorganization of the system and overseen a steady rise in test scores.
