The Orioles have announced their probable starters for their upcoming series in Kansas City and the rotation will stay in line with one exception: The club has flipped Scott Feldman and Jason Hammel. Feldman, who started the Orioles' final game before the break on Sunday, will start Monday against the Royals, and Hammel, whose last start came Saturday, will pitch on Tuesday in Kansas City. Hammel, the Orioles' Opening Day starter, has struggled recently, going winless over his last eight starts with the Orioles going 1-7 over that span.

In the wake of his team's fourth straight loss and its 13th in 14 games, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden addressed a host of problems during his Monday news conference, including potential lineup changes and the need for vast improvement in third-down efficiency and the running game. Gruden did not specify which players or positions might be in flux but said he does not intend to replace starting quarterback Kirk Cousins with third-stringer Colt McCoy . In Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Redskins' ninth defeat in a row on the road, Cousins threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter.

It will be interesting to see how the Ravens' no-huddle offense holds up on the road against Kansas City on Sunday. When the Ravens played Philadelphia in Week 2 on the road, the team got away from the no-huddle partially because of the crowd noise and other communication problems. Kansas City has one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL, complete with throwback music from the 1960s and 1970s. Quarterback Joe Flacco has played well in the Ravens' no-huddle approach. He ran this offense in college at Delaware.

Heavy rain forecast through the night in Kansas City prompted Major League Baseball to postpone American League Championship Series Game 3 between the Orioles and Royals in Kansas City. Nearly three-quarters of an inch of rain had fallen there as of 3 p.m. central time, and as much as another half inch of rain is possible through Monday night, according to the  National Weather Service 's Kansas City forecast office. Game 3 is now set for 8 p.m. Tuesday, with Game 4 at 4 p.m. Wednesday and Game 5, if necessary, at 4 p.m. Thursday.

On Sunday morning, Bryan Cronin will go to church and pray for a Ravens victory. Then he'll don his trusty Kelly Gregg jersey and board a bus to the stadium, four hours before game time. That the Baltimore contractor will be performing his game day rituals in Kansas City hardly matters to him. He will go anywhere for a Ravens game — except Pittsburgh, which might as well be a circle of hell as far as he's concerned. "I like to travel, I like to see different cities and I'm a Ravens nut," said Cronin, who hasn't missed a non- Steelers game in eight years.

The Kansas City Chiefs have pledged to work on protecting the football. The Ravens are hoping that the Chiefs will wait another week before finding the solution. Kansas City has committed a NFL-worst 15 turnovers, including a league-worst eight fumbles. The team's inability to avoid turnovers was highlighted in last Sunday's 37-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers, who took advantage of three Matt Cassel interceptions, two Jamaal Charles fumbles and a Shaun Draughn fumble. But several Ravens players said they are expecting a different Chiefs team to take the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday than the one that has been so turnover-prone recently.

The Orioles ended their four-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory Thursday night in Kansas City. Perhaps more important, they held on to a one-run lead in the ninth (really, from the fifth to the ninth) for the win. And when the need for a save arose in the ninth inning, left-hander Zach Britton got the call to try and close out a game for the first time in his professional career. He did it with a 1-2-3 inning, getting three ground-ball outs on 12 pitches, all sinkerballs.  Meanwhile, previous closer Tommy Hunter remained in the bullpen, briefly warming up in the eighth but staying on the bench in the ninth.

So much love has gone into the physical details and the music of Robert Altman's "Kansas City" that it's a shame the movie isn't up to the effort.It's a movie you yearn to care for, but it refuses to allow you: It's too busy being singular to be good.The setting is the legendary town of the title at its most legendary time: the early '30s, just after the Kansas City Massacre in which Pretty Boy Floyd allegedly gunned down two FBI agents as well as some cops and the con he was supposed to free.

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Orioles will attempt an unprecedented climb out of a 2-0 hole as the American League Championship Series shifts to Kauffman Stadium. It won't be easy because the Kansas City Royals are a team brimming with confidence. The Royals arrived home having won all six of their postseason games - pulling out two tightly-contested wins over the Orioles at Camden Yards with their share of late-inning hits and celebratory histrionics - to put the Orioles' season on the brink.

Major league officials were relieved when the Orioles and Royals were able to play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards in spite of a constant threat of rain. They might not be so lucky on Monday night. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain during the day and a 90 percent chance of rain on Monday night in the Kansas City area. If Mother Nature makes it impossible to get the game in, the same scenario will apply that was in play in Baltimore.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Championship Series between the Orioles and the Kansas City Royals. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles now have a tremendous mountain to climb in Kansas City down two games to none as the ALCS shifts to Kauffman Stadium. The Orioles hadn't lost consecutive home games since June 28-29. And if they were able to get anything out of a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning, Game 2 might have turned out different.

Cal Ripken Jr. remembers well the pleasures of playing in Kansas City the last time the Royals were contenders - the smart, respectful fans who adored their team but would also applaud an opponent's standout catch. "Playing in Kansas City was a lot like playing in Baltimore," the Orioles great said Thursday as his former club prepared to play the Royals in the American League Championship Series. It's hard to imagine two franchises or two fan bases better equipped to understand one another's journeys.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's possible that the Kansas City Royals will go into the American League Championship Series against the Orioles with the same 25-man roster, including 11 pitchers, they used to sweep the Los Angeles Angels in the Division Series. And it appears likely that Kansas City rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura will be the Game 2 starter Saturday after right-hander James Shields pitches in Game 1. “We're pretty set with Ventura in the second game,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This city, one of only a handful of jurisdictions to pass term limitation laws, took the plunge in November 1990.By a majority of 57 percent, voters pulled the lever for term limits, and in so doing pulled the plug on a stuck-in-a-rut City Council. Unlike some jurisdictions, Kansas City didn't "grandfather" in the sitting politicians.By setting a deadline of eight years in office, the people effectively terminated nine of the council's 13 members. The quadrennial councilmanic election fell on March 26, 1991, and thus only those who had won their first terms in 1987 could file for re-election.
