What's in a name? Shakespeare had a point when he had Juliet telling Romeo that "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. " But don't tell that to the many Native Americans furious at the Pentagon for code-naming Osama bid Laden "Geronimo" in the raid that found and killed him. Members of that community have taken to pen, Internet and radio denouncing the usage, highlighted last Sunday by President Barack Obama on the CBS News show "60 Minutes....

He was 27, a drug addict with a lengthy criminal record who stumbled into a Baltimore public housing project, high on heroin and cocaine and hungry for more. The drug deal went badly, and Geronimo J. Hunt was shot twice, once in the head and once in the back. He fell onto a grassy spit of land in O'Donnell Heights, curled into a fetal position, bleeding to death. "He was a victim of a disease, drugs and these people out here, standing here, selling drugs to him," said Hunt's 30-year-old fiancee, Melissa Beckette, who has turned the murder scene into a miniature shrine with photos, handwritten cards, a clutch of plastic flowers and a teddy bear in a white wedding gown.

In 1993, Walter Hill's Geronimo: An American Legend opened days after the cable premiere of a TV movie called Geronimo. Hill's picture was a moving, sumptuous, ferociously alive American epic. The cable film was generic and forgettable. But more people saw that production in its debut and its immediate repeats than have seen Hill's great Western to this day. As Hill said at the time, "How are you going to get people to pay their way into a theater to see a story they think they've seen for free on basic cable?

LI Zhisui, 75, the personal doctor of Mao Tse-tung whose recently published memoirs portrayed the Chinese leader as a manipulative egomaniac with little tolerance of dissent and scant care for hygiene, died Tuesday of an apparent heart attack at his home in suburban Chicago. He was little known outside China until his book, "The Private Life of Chairman Mao: The Memoirs of Mao's Personal Physician," was published last October. The book included sometimes-racy anecdotes and unusual insights into the workings of the upper echelons of the Chinese government.

A source tells me the Orioles have placed catcher Geronimo Gil on waivers, and if he goes unclaimed, they could remove him from the 40-man roster and outright him. And if he's claimed, they don't believe they've lost much. He hasn't drawn much interest around baseball. I'm hearing the Orioles are willing to go with two catchers now, making Javy Lopez the backup to starter Ramon Hernandez. The team risks losing the designated hitter if Lopez begins a game in that role and has to replace Hernandez in the late innings, but how often would that be an issue?

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Put Orioles reliever Todd Williams in a setup or closer's role, and his successes would stand out. Have him enter games in the middle innings, almost without notice, and the accolades tend to miss him. And that's just the way Williams wants it. The right-hander hasn't permitted a run in 18 of his past 19 games dating back to last season. His 0.00 ERA this season has covered four appearances. "I don't look at numbers," he said. "If there's a stat sheet in front of me, I push it aside.

Chris Gomez went 4-for-4 and Larry Bigbie had a two-run, tie-breaking single in the sixth inning to give the Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday. Bigbie was 8-for-53 (.151) this spring before singling off reliever Giavonni Carrara with the bases loaded. Daniel Cabrera, named the Orioles' No. 2 starter, gave up two runs (one earned) and two hits in five innings. Hee-Seop Choi homered off him in the fifth to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. Former Oriole Scott Erickson, the Dodgers' fifth starter this season, allowed one run (none earned)

Batting .130 coming into yesterday's game, reserve infielder Chris Stynes delivered the tie-breaking run in the seventh inning with a triple off Boston reliever Mark Malaska, and the Orioles defeated the Red Sox, 5-3, before a sellout crowd. Tim Raines Jr. reached with one out after being hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on the triple. Former No. 1 draft pick Nick Markakis followed with an RBI single to increase the Orioles' lead to 5-3. Orioles starter Daniel Cabrera was removed with one out in the fifth after the Red Sox scored twice to take a 3-1 lead.

Each time Orioles catcher Keith Osik walked past the lineup card outside the home clubhouse yesterday, he'd take a quick glance to see whether his name was included on it. When a player has made only one start in 16 games, he's not going to assume anything. A day game increased his chances of being in the lineup, but Osik had to wait until later in the morning before it became official. He batted ninth against the Toronto Blue Jays' Roy Halladay, with Javy Lopez making his second start as the designated hitter.
