In his brief comments to the media following the Orioles' ALDS Game 5 loss to the Yankees in New York, club managing partner Peter Angelos opened the door to the idea of a contract extension for manager Buck Showalter. “If they're interested in staying,” Angelos said of Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette, “nobody's more interested in keeping him than I am. And certainly I speak for everyone in the organization.” Showalter's contract runs through the end of the 2013 season, but speaking with reporters on Saturday, he indicated he was fine with the status of his deal.

The structure of his deal, which has been agreed to in principle and not signed, reflects that hope as it would make him the highest-paid player in the game.

The police and fire unions made a proposal in September of 2009 regarding the fire and police pension plan. While the unions were negotiating with members of the City Council to seek those changes, the mayor's folks were crafting Ordinance 10-0306, which took effect in June 2010. While in litigation we made a settlement offer to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in January of 2013 with regard to Ordinance 10-0306.
