ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Each day of Rafael Palmeiro's suspension for violating baseball's steroid policy seems to leave his Orioles' teammates more confused, and more in search of answers. Reports that Palmeiro tested positive for stanozolol, a potent steroid that's not likely to be found in any supplements, had them wondering if he intentionally took the drug, or if the same protein drinks they consume could be contaminated. "I'd still like to talk to Raffy," Jay Gibbons said before last night's game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Any popcorn with that? Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy could be local producer Rodney Bethea's No. 1 promoter.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. are pushing to get passed this year.

The long-awaited hearing to decide whether Terrell Owens' trade to the Ravens is valid will take place today in Philadelphia. The closed-door meeting will be presided over by Stephen Burbank, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. Burbank's first decision as an NFL arbiter is expected to come tomorrow. His judgment can be appealed to U.S. District Judge David Doty, who oversees the collective-bargaining agreement. It is unclear when Doty would be able to deal with an appeal. Owens, a four-time Pro Bowl receiver, is trying to become a free agent so he can play for the Philadelphia Eagles instead of the Ravens.
