Though political winds have switched course for 2007, investors probably needn't batten down the hatches for major changes emanating from Washington. Democrats control Congress, but they want to avoid doing anything that appears overly brash and might scare voters away in the 2008 presidential election, experts say. President Bush still has veto power. As a result, gridlock is likely to be in style. Some changes are expected to occur, such as a boost in the minimum wage, but action on other pocketbook issues likely will be limited.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost, who was Orioles designated hitter Nelson Cruz's first manager with the Milwaukee Brewers, said the slugger has surpassed even Yost's high expectations for him since their time together in 2005. “I loved Nelson Cruz when he was there,” Yost said. “Nelly was right on the verge of becoming a special player at that time -- still struggling to make contact, but when he did make contact, it was loud contact. But you could tell down the road that he was going to be a big-time power hitter.” The Brewers, who Yost managed from 2003 to 2008, acquired Cruz from the Oakland Athletics in December 2004.

DETROIT - Orioles bench coach John Russell is expected to be interviewed for the Minnesota Twins' managerial position. Russell, who has been the Orioles' bench coach since 2011, has previous managing experience. He managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2008 to 2010, compiling a 186-299 record over those three seasons. All of manager Buck Showalter's coaches, including Russell, are currently under contract for next season, so the Orioles would need to give permission to interview Russell.

IF YOU HAD asked me in February what the scene would be like in Baltimore if the Orioles were in first place in the American League East going into the final weekend of June, I would have predicted spontaneous celebration on every street corner and - considering the state of the organization the past seven years - apocalyptic images of cats lying down with dogs and Sidney Ponson ordering from the healthy fare menu at Baja Beach Club. In short, I would have expected Orioles fans to be so enchanted by the possibility of a real playoff run that it would be hard to find anyone in the Inner Harbor not wearing an official Jimmyville T-shirt.

MADRID, Spain - U.S. officials predicted yesterday that contributors will be more generous than expected in funding Iraqi reconstruction, despite the latest international divisions over U.S. stewardship that burst into view at a donors conference. Even as a senior U.S. official noted a "snowballing effect among donors," Chris Patten, European Union commissioner of external affairs, defended many Europeans' reluctance to chip in. "You can't expect European taxpayers who felt pretty hostile to military intervention to feel highly enthusiastic about spending a large amount of money in Iraq," Patten said at a news conference during the first day of the two-day event.

Local economists believe employers in the state will add at least as many jobs this year as they did last year, the strongest job market since the high-tech boom at the turn of the century. Economists at RESI, Towson University's research and consulting arm, told business leaders at an outlook conference yesterday that they expect job growth of 1.8 percent this year on a seasonally adjusted average, compared with 1.7 percent in 2005. Several other local economists are also forecasting good job growth, though their numbers can't be compared directly with RESI's because they're not using the same data.

Eight years ago, Dian Corneliussen-James had surgeons cut out half of her right lung, a risky procedure she believes saved her life. Though she thinks the surgery saved her from death from metastatic breast cancer , which had spread to her lung, she said she is "terrified to go off" the drug, Faslodex, that doctors say could be keeping her alive. Her survival has prompted doctors and others to call her and patients with metastatic breast cancer like her "outliers" because they don't know why some patients with the incurable disease live a long time.

The city expects a flood of applications when it opens the wait list for Section 8 housing vouchers this month for the first time in more than a decade. Housing advocates say 50,000 families or more might sign up for a lottery to fill 25,000 places on the Housing Authority's wait list for the tenant-based housing choice vouchers. The coveted federal subsidies help families pay the portion of their rent that exceeds 30 percent of their income. The vouchers can be used to rent any residence, subject to a cap. In Baltimore, that is roughly $900 for a one-bedroom apartment.

President Barack Obama's modus operandi is to do what he always does. This Friday will be the last unemployment rate released until after the November election. The next numbers come out three days after the Nov. 4 election so President Obama has to lie big Friday, and I guarantee he will drop the unemployment rate to at least 5.9 percent. He will justify that by reporting at least 250,000 supposed new jobs and revising August job numbers higher - - which is a lie but who cares? In this lie-filled administration where the only goal is to save the Senate Democratic majority, they will do or say whatever it takes to make sure Mr. Obama will not have to face scrutiny over his last two years of playing golf and flying on Air Force One wasting our tax dollars making sure the First Lady is pacified with food from around the world.

Although Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe said his arthroscopic knee surgery went well last week, he was noncommittal on when he'll return to practice. Monroe declined to say if he completely tore or partially tore his meniscus and said he has no timetable on when he'll be able to run again. Monroe is expected to miss roughly a month, according to a source. "It just depends," Monroe said. "I'm doing everything I can to get back as soon as it's possible. I just come in and work every day to get healthy.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

Of all the offices in the federal government, the job of attorney general may be one of the toughest as well the most thankless. Eric H. Holder, who announced last week that he is stepping down as the nation's top law enforcement official six years after becoming the first African-American ever to hold that position, was no stranger to the controversy that comes with the job nor to the endless stream of criticism directed at its occupants. His tenure was not perfect - the failure to crack down sufficiently on the financial speculators who brought our economy to ruin being perhaps the greatest shortcoming.

Maryland is now facing a $405 million revenue shortfall over this year and next, largely the result of sluggish job growth, stagnant incomes and a weak housing market, state officials reported Wednesday. Five years after the official end of the recession, Maryland continues to confront fiscal trouble. This latest shortfall will force Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration and the General Assembly to make deeper cuts than previously expected to balance the state's roughly $40 billion budget.

NEW YORK -- Nelson Cruz said Wednesday that he didn't expect to hit 40 home runs before the season began, adding that staying healthy has been the key to having a career year at age 34. “No shot,” he said when asked if he thought at the beginning of the year he'd hit 40. “I was able to do that number. I didn't expect 40, the number. I think the aim for any player is to stay healthy, play as many games as he can, stay on the field. That was my main goal, to try and stay healthy, to try to put up numbers.
