" (You need an Insider account for full access.) Jones' headline was "When Baseball Changed in Baltimore," which he explains was Aug. 3, 2010, the day Buck Showalter was hired as manager.

Last week, ESPN revealed its NFL “All Era” team, which recognized those current players whose attitudes and styles of play would make them successful in, well, any era, whether it is today's pass-happy NFL or the days when Dick Butkus and Jack Lambert roamed the field and the word “concussion” was crazy medical jargon. Three Ravens were in the top 14 -- linebacker Ray Lewis, safety Ed Reed and running back Ray Rice. Lewis was No. 1 on the list , which was based on voting by 20 Hall of Famers -- legends such as Mike Ditka, Warren Moon and Jerry Rice -- and ESPN.com senior writer John Clayton.

President Barack Obama took a break from whatever it is he does around here -- I say that in jest, of course -- to fill out his bracket for the NCAA men's basketball tournament, and it's clear that Obama loves chalk more than your typical grade school teacher. On Wednesday's "SportsCenter," Obama and ESPN.com senior college basketball writer Andy Katz unveiled the 44th president's bracket. The basketball nut had all four No. 1 seeds -- Duke, Ohio State, Pittsburgh and Kansas -- advancing to the Final Four, with Kansas beating Ohio State in the national final.

John Gilchrist is taking the gamble this spring that he passed on taking last spring. Whether he cashes in won't be known until the June 28 NBA draft. The worst-kept secret on the Maryland campus was confirmed yesterday: Gilchrist, the junior guard who was Most Valuable Player of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in 2004, will skip his final year of eligibility and has hired an agent. According to one source familiar with the situation, Gilchrist filed paperwork to the NBA making him eligible for the draft more than three weeks ago; the deadline for such notices to be postmarked is midnight tonight.
