A week ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to enjoy a Major League Baseball game in Camden Yards, where my favorite team, the Kansas City Royals, were in town for the second game of a three-game series. As it turned out, it was the middle game of an Orioles sweep, much to my chagrin. I wasn't totally devastated, but before the game began, there was a moment of silence for a Royals great, pitcher Paul Splittorff, who died earlier that day from a form of cancer. Unaware of that news, the game took on a slightly lesser meaning.

Baseball predictions are always fun. Maybe it's because most of our NCAA brackets are busted and we need something new to stake our reputation to. Or maybe it's that the baseball season is so long that six months from now few people will actually remember what we pick. We at The Baltimore Sun already made our predictions for the 2013 baseball season (feel free to save that link and shove them in our face in October). Now it's time to document what the other so-called experts think will happen.

Each week, The Sun will publish a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his or her team. Today's guest is Dave Brown, a sophomore midfielder for UMBC. Question: You registered four goals and three assists in the team's season-opening 16-10 win against Presbyterian on Saturday. Is that what you anticipated doing? Answer: No, I had no idea that was going to happen. I really just went out and played and let the game kind of come to me. It just so happened that I was in the right place at the right time, and I was just lucky enough to put my shots in the back of the net and make the right plays.

The trio is playing a big part in the success of Seward, which completed the first half of its season 13-1. Brown and Dean are starters, and Jones comes off the bench.

What's new: Redskins tackle Ed Simmons (6 feet 5, 330 pounds) is being heralded as a leader on the offensive line after playing many of his previous nine seasons with Washington in the shadows of Jim Lachey and Joe Jacoby. Gus Frerotte said Simmons still doesn't talk much, but "every now and then he'll get on somebody's case." Simmons has been bothered by various knee injuries throughout his career but still managed to be on the field for 1,981 snaps out of a possible 2,058 during the 1994 and 1995 seasons.

The New York Giants have seen the future, and it looks a lot like second-year quarterback Danny Kanell.Kanell was no world-beater in his first NFL start this week, a 27-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but he was good enough to put Dave Brown's job in jeopardy.Kanell made his debut as a starter in Tempe, Ariz., after Brown suffered a Week 6 chest injury against Dallas. Brown, who made 44 consecutive starts for the Giants, could miss four to six weeks to injury -- and a lot more time after that.

PHILADELPHIA -- David Meggett had leveled a linebacker, but now it seemed that Dave Brown's pass was floating to him. Floating slowly. Too slowly."The ball took so long," the New York Giants' little big man from Towson State was saying after yesterday's bizarre 16-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. "I had a thousand things going through my mind."Such as don't drop it. Whatever happens, don't drop it.He didn't. All alone out near the left sideline after getting up from having flattened blitzing linebacker William Thomas, he caught the pass, turned upfield and hurried to the Eagles' 9-yard line to position Brad Daluiso's decisive 18-yard field goal with 54 seconds remaining.

What's new: Will there be a Round 2 Sunday at RFK Stadium in the battle between Washington linebacker Marvcus Patton and New York Giants quarterback Dave Brown? Neither player has ruled out the possibility, although Brown and Patton both said their fourth-quarter altercation Sept. 15 at the Meadowlands was most likely a "one-time thing. I prefer to rattle people with pads and pressure, not talking," said Patton of the brief fight that grew out of some trash talking throughout the first three quarters.
