The way things have gone this week in Baltimore, it would not be a tremendous surprise if news broke tomorrow that Francis Scott Key plagiarized "The Star-Spangled Banner. " Four days after the shocking Ray Rice elevator video placed Charm City in a very uncharming light , Major League Baseball announced on Friday that Orioles corner infielder  Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games after testing positive for an amphetamine. The suspension is a major blow to the Orioles, who are heading toward the postseason already without star players Manny Machado and Matt Wieters, and a second national embarrassment for a city that remains at the center of the NFL's domestic abuse scandal.

BRISTOL, Conn. - It doesn't take much to grasp just how many options sit at a sports fan's fingertips these days. One glance at the weekend TV listings or into a packed sports bar showing a wide array of games does the trick. But most fans take for granted that they can find at least one live game to watch every night of the week. The sports fan's world hasn't been that way for long. Before cable TV was even a thought, the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) provided the only games on the dial.

On Dec. 17, Fox Sports will celebrate the first anniversary of the biggest acquisition in sports broadcasting history, the lifting of NFL telecasts from CBS -- a rights holder for 38 years.That heist alone was enough to shake the industry to its foundation, but the new kids in town have hardly stopped there.Since football kicked off in September, Fox has made forays into professional hockey and now golf, with last week's announcement that it will sponsor and televise a new World Golf Tour that seeks to challenge the PGA.In the process, Fox has again defied conventional wisdom and left many wondering what's next.

The WNBA has basked in the spotlight in its inaugural season, making it seem like the first professional women's basketball success story in the United States. But although the first season of its cold-weather counterpart, the American Basketball League, went widely unnoticed, it apparently has the makings of a legitimate rival.The ABL operates in eight smaller cities and had attendance figures considerably lower than the Women's National Basketball Association's in its first season, which ended in March, but the ABL attracted some of the best young talent out of colleges, signing the last two collegiate players of the year.

Cal Ripken Jr. approached the Orioles about joining the club in an unspecified front-office capacity and was turned down by principal owner Peter G. Angelos, according to a story by FoxSports.com that cited several unnamed sources. On its website Friday night, Fox Sports reported that Ripken, the Hall of Fame infielder and arguably the organization's greatest player, met with Andy MacPhail, the team's president of baseball operations, to discuss a potential job. But, in a separate conversation, Angelos denied the request, stating that "he did not want Ripken to receive credit once the team returned to prominence," according to three Fox Sports' sources.

A look at some baseball experts' observations about the Orioles as they prepare for the start of the 2014 season. "This division, you can flip a coin and say who's going to win. But I'm flipping my coin towards the Orioles being a postseason team. " - Harold Reynolds, MLB Network "This team is going to be fun to watch offensively. A lot of power in that lineup, with [Nelson] Cruz, J.J. Hardy, Adam Jones and, of course, [Chris] "Crush" Davis at first base, who I think is the real deal and will repeat his year from 2013.

National draft analysts have released a wave of new mock drafts after the NFL scouting combine wrapped up last week, but we continue to see many of the same names -- especially Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans and tight end Eric Ebron -- linked to the Ravens at pick No. 17 with few exceptions. Baltimore Sun reporter Matt Vensel takes a look at which prospects are being "mocked" to the Ravens: Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M . “The Ravens have deep threats at receiver with Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, but could use a larger, more physical talent for Joe Flacco to target,” Brugler wrote.

Here's a look at what the experts from a number of national media outlets think. (Feel free to leave your comments and score predictions at the bottom.)   ESPN Insider Phil Steele has FSU prevailing, 37-20: "This will be the first time since 2006 that Maryland has been involved in a game featuring two Top-25 teams and I think the stage may be too big at this point," he writes, "especially considering the Seminoles have averaged 52 PPG in their past nine home games while the defense will be playing with a chip on its shoulder after last week's poor performance.

What a great Baltimore weekend for lovers of fine TV baseball. The Orioles sweep the Yankees, and ESPN comes to town Sunday night and delivers a winning national telecast. Plus, it comes hot on the heels of first-rate coverage Saturday night from Fox Sports. (Read my review of Fox's Saturday night telecast here .) I'm not all that crazy about the three-guys-in-booth broadcast team of Dan Shulman, Orel Hershiser and John Kruk. But I loved the sound, look and feel of Sunday night's production.

Chris Davis was one of the hottest hitters in baseball in the first week of the season, though he has cooled off over the past couple of games. Still, his historic four-game start to the season probably prompted casual sports fans across the country to ask themselves, “Who is this Chris Davis guy and where did he come from?” Well, everyone here in Baltimore knows that the Orioles acquired him from the Texans Rangers before the trade deadline in 2011. But Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports has shared some interesting details from the deal . As it turns out, the Orioles more or less bought the slugging first baseman from the Rangers for $2 million.

What a pleasure it was to get the first team from Fox for the telecast of a Ravens game rather than the second or third crew from CBS as we usually do. OK, maybe seeing the Ravens bounce back so decisively against the New York Giants, 33-14, has a little something to do with all the holiday cheer I'm feeling. But I really believe it has a lot more to do with the authoritative play-by-play from Joe Buck and on-the-money analysis from Troy Aikman -- without a second of gas-bag, hot-air talk from either of them all day. And the guys in the booth were only part of the happy, holiday, TV package Fox Sports sent our way Sunday.
