Maryland's Board of Public Works accepted a deal Wednesday that will allow the Maryland Stadium Authority to start clearing seats out of Oriole Park at Camden Yards to make way for a new concession company and wider seats. The details of the new arrangement were reported last week, and could also include the replacement of up to 12 skyboxes with larger party suites. The changes will reduce seating at the state-owned park by more than 2,300, to 45,971. Wednesday's deal permits about $1.5 million in improvements, including alterations to the railings and platforms at the park.

Is that all there was? For all the hysteria it provoked, the Gilbert Arenas-Javaris Crittenton incident now looks less like the Gunfight at the NBA Corral than the comic duel in "Love and Death," between Boris Grushenko (Woody Allen) and Count Anton Inbedkov, rivals for the notorious Countess Alexandrovna. Scary as it is to see children play with guns, it doesn't look like the two players drew on each other, as reported only by the New York Post and recycled endlessly.

Grant Balfour will be pitching in the American League East after all. And he'll have up to 19 chances in 2014 to show a little “Balfour Rage” against the Orioles, the team that spiked a free-agent deal with him in December. The 36-year-old Australian right-hander signed a two-year deal Thursday with the Tampa Bay Rays, one of his former teams, that is reportedly worth $12 million total. Balfour had converted 62 of 67 save opportunities since becoming the Oakland Athletics' full-time closer in 2012.

Carroll County officials said Tuesday the county will pay a $1 million penalty to get out of a deal to build a waste-to-energy incinerator with Frederick County. In 2009, the previous Board of County Commissioners signed a pact with Frederick County and the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority to build an incinerator in Frederick capable of handling 1,500 tons of waste a day. The current commissioner board decided in 2012 they wanted out of the deal, citing concerns with the cost of building the incinerator and hauling costs.

Now he claims not only that he will bring football back to the state, but that he will foot the bill himself, purchasing the land and paying for stadium construction.
