The supervisor of the Maryland State Police drug bureau has been demoted and shifted to a low-profile administrative post -- a move that comes amid an internal probe into the bureau's investigation of nude dance bars on The Block.Thomas H. Carr, who once came close to running the entire agency, was pulled from his coveted post Friday and demoted two ranks, from lieutenant colonel to captain. The demotion -- to a rank he first attained eight years ago -- was announced as internal investigators continue to examine the bureau, its finances and several of its undercover officers.

CHICAGO - A day after being demoted to the bullpen for the first time in his major league career, the disappointment in Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez's voice was unmistakable. When Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal with the Orioles in February, he said he wanted to help the club get back to the World Series. And he said before Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field that he will do everything he can to keep that goal. “It's a little bit disappointing, it's a little bit hard, but like I say, we're all here for the same thing, and that's hopefully getting us into the World Series,” Jimenez said.

The commander of the Baltimore Police Department's Southeastern District, who was suspended last month as internal investigators examined his office computer, has been demoted and will return to patrol, police said. Maj. Roger Bergeron, an 18-year veteran who oversaw the district for nearly three years, accepted a demotion to the rank of lieutenant and will return to a yet-to-be-determined patrol district effective Sunday, according to Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman.

Over the weekend I received a whole lot of correspondence about the Orioles' decision to send right-hander Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday night despite the fact that he pitched well in his past three starts. I tried to explain that it was procedural and that he would be back Friday afternoon to start against the Tampa Bay Rays, be sent down Friday night and then likely will be up again to start the following week against the Texas Rangers. Some of you didn't care about the rationale; you were still ticked.

The Court of Special Appeals let stand yesterday an Anne Arundel Circuit Court ruling that affirmed the demotions of two county police officers for having sex with informants but directed the police chief to reconsider the demotion of one of them.The court ruled that Anne Arundel Circuit Judge Eugene M. Lerner was correct June 6, 1994, when he upheld the findings of a police trial board that recommended the demotions of Bret K. Ballam and Henry A. McClung from sergeant to patrol officer.Judge Lerner also directed the chief to re-evaluate Officer Ballam's demotion because there wasn't enough evidence to prove one of the charges against him.The trial board found the officers violated department policy that forbids officers from socializing with informants.

A dispute that began in May involving the demotion of a popular former assistant principal at C. Milton Wright High School remains unresolved. Christopher Battaglia, the former assistant principal at the high school who is appealing his demotion from assistant principal to teacher, met with the superintendent and the school district's lawyers Friday. After a seven-hour meeting, he told a group of supporters rallying outside, "It's not over." Battaglia's hearing was recessed and scheduled to continue at a date that has not been set, said Harford County Public Schools spokesman Don Morrison.

WASHINGTON - John Riggs spent 39 years in the Army, earning a Distinguished Flying Cross for bravery during the Vietnam War and working his way up to become a three-star general entrusted with creating a high-tech Army for the 21st century. But on a spring day last year, Riggs was told by senior Army officials that he would be retired at a reduced rank, losing one of his stars because of infractions considered so minor that they were not placed in his official record. He was given 24 hours to leave the Army.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Manager Frank Robinson had said for weeks that he would not sit idly by and watch the Baltimore Orioles fall out of contention in the American League East.First, he juggled the starting lineup and tried to shake the club out of its season-opening struggles. Sunday, he tried raising his voice in an angry clubhouse lecture on the ugly state of the team. Monday, just as the Orioles were starting to show signs of life at the plate, he presided over the first performance-related roster move of the regular season.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter basically confirmed everything that has been written about the decision to send rookie Kevin Gausman to Triple-A last night. Gausman will be back Friday as the allowed “26th man” to pitch one end of the split doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays. He'll then be sent back down to the minors Friday and will return to the majors the following week after spending four more days in the minors (to fulfill the 10-requirement after a demotion). In other words, Gausman is not expected to miss a start, just have one pushed back from Wednesday to Friday.

Many of you on Twitter last night and this morning refuse to accept the move to send Kevin Gausman to Triple-A. That's your prerogative. But here is the simple reasoning why Gausman was sent to Norfolk last night after making three strong starts (3-0, 0.94 ERA). Gausman's 2014 option has already been used. So he can be moved up and down with no consequences, roster-wise. Miguel Gonzalez, Wei-Yin Chen and Bud Norris haven't had their option used in 2014 (and all are veterans who have been pitching fairly well, too)

A federal judge in Washington has dismissed the high-profile discrimination lawsuit of a Gallaudet University official who claimed she was unfairly demoted for signing a petition to put Maryland's same-sex marriage law to referendum. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ruled April 14 that Angela McCaskill, Gallaudet's former chief diversity officer, had failed to show she had been discriminated against under the D.C. Human Right's Act -- whether for her religion, political beliefs or identity as a straight woman -- or that the university had acted negligently.

After opening the season with the same starting attack in the first three games, No. 7 Washington College made a change prior to Saturday's home contest against Frostburg State. The Shoremen (4-0) elected to move senior J.D. Campbell to the starting unit, joining senior Jim Cusick and junior Sam Birnbaum. Campbell scored one goal on five shots and collected five ground balls, which was second only to junior faceoff specialist Michael Trapp's six ground balls. “J.D.'s been playing very well, and we've got that five-man attack rotation,” coach Jeff Shirk said Monday morning.

An inquiry came over the transom yesterday from a reader who cringed at an American Idol  contestant's use of "me and my mom" and "me and my sister," which the writer said was "like fingernails on a chalk board. " My standard reply is that I have my hands full editing the work of professional journalists for publication, and that people's speech, text messages, and other casual writings lie beyond the scope of my writ.  But that is a dodge. Actually, I don't mind the "me ands" all that much.* I think that that statement would strike horror in the English teachers of my childhood, who were at considerable pains to browbeat us into talking proper.** I suggest that you consider what it would be like if everyone spoke using the grammar of standard written English--that is, for example, if everyone were as pompous, polysyllabic, and priggish in speech as I am. You would recoil in horror.  One of the pleasures of encountering demotic speech (from the Greek demos , "the people")

A military report indicated that she was demoted for poor job performance.

That's the bottom line. The team needs me. They need me to be better. That's the bottom line, really. I wasn't good enough right now. " What will you work on at Triple-A? "It's pretty obvious. I talked to Buck about a few things.

Before the crowds, before the expectations, before worrying about his career and where he fit in, he needed to go back to the time when the game was free of distractions, when baseball wasn't much more complicated that throwing a ball through a tire in his backyard as a kid. The 30-year-old right-hander will start the...
