CARLISLE, Pa. -- This is the summer of discontent for Wilber Marshall.The career of the veteran Washington Redskins linebacker has taken an unwelcome turn.When the Redskins opened camp a month ago, Marshall said he wasn't happy that the team was switching him from right linebacker, where he has played his whole career, to left linebacker, where he'll have to tangle with the tight end.The Redskins closed camp last night, and Marshall wasn't any happier about the move when he left than he was when he arrived.

Fans were left holding their breath at the end of RAW Monday night -- not due to the sight in the ring, Roman Reigns standing tall -- but the scene outside the ring, with medical personnel looking at Seth Rollins. Toward the end of the match, Rollins tried a springboard attack against Reigns, who sidestepped the move. As he landed in the ring Rollins immediately bent over, grabbing towards his right knee. Reigns then clotheslined him over the top rope, and when Rollins hit the ground he again grabbed at his knee.

This was one time when the left side of the Orioles' infield was a little too much in sync.Friday night's game against the Boston Red Sox: Third baseman Cal Ripken scoops up a grounder and sidearms a high throw to first for an error. The next inning: Shortstop Mike Bordick races toward the middle, snags a chopper and throws high to first for an error.Now, move ahead to the next day. Ripken leaps and makes a backhanded stab of a liner by Boston's Mike Stanley. And Bordick, the next inning, dives in the hole to smother a shot from Rudy Pemberton, unloading the ball before he's risen from the dirt.

The Orioles have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with infielder Wilson Betemit, according to an industry source. The deal, which includes an option for a third year, is pending a physical. The 30-year-old switch-hitter batted .285 with a .343 on-base percentage in 97 games with the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers last year. Primarily a third baseman, he also has played shortstop, second base and outfield in his career -- though he is not known for his defensive abilities.

Glenelg's boys soccer team passed what it considered a key test yesterday, dominating visiting Bel Air for a 7-0 victory.Bel Air, ranked No. 11 last week, trailed only 2-0 at halftime, but fell apart in the second half against a slick-passing Glenelg attack that has scored 28 goals in four games.The Gladiators' defense, led by goalie Russell Payne and sweeper Keever Frye, has allowed just one goal all season."After we won our first two games against Thomas Johnson and Edgewood we still weren't sure how well we matched up with other county teams," Glenelg coach John Bouman said.

A Westminster mother is suing Carroll County General Hospital and a Westminster surgeon, alleging last year's hernia surgery on her daughter's right side was the wrong side.According to the civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in Carroll County Circuit Court, the girl was diagnosed by the Carroll County Health Department and the hospital's emergency room staff in 1993 with a hernia on her left side.The child was monitored until February 1995, when the mother said she was told that surgery should be performed to correct the condition and she was referred to Dr. John E. Steers, the Westminster surgeon named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

The Orioles' already depleted pitching staff suffered a major scare last night when closer Gregg Olson doubled over in pain with an apparent muscle cramp in his left side and was unable to continue to throw.But in the clubhouse afterward, Olson played down the injury. "I'm an optimist," he said. "All at once, it just grabbed. That makes me think it's a cramp."Manager Johnny Oates was equally optimistic. "Right now, we think that it's just a cramp and that he'll be ready [to pitch] tomorrow."

ARLINGTON, Tex. — It took seven games for Giants manager Bruce Bochy to get the left side of his infield right in the playoffs. He tried three combinations at shortstop and third base, mixing and matching with the likes of Pablo Sandoval and Mike Fontenot . But before Game 3 of the NLCS, he installed Edgar Renteria at short and Juan Uribe at third. Bochy rode that combination the rest of the way and wound up with a World Series championship, with Renteria an unlikely MVP. "Edgar's been through it," Bochy said.

Seated in front of his locker, Michael Oher had nearly devoured a cookie before being interrupted. Rather than finish it, Oher turned to his right, took aim at a trash can about 12 feet away and lofted the cookie into the can with little difficulty. Complimented on the shot, Oher shrugged his shoulders and said, "It was there." Oher's nonchalant toss hints at the athleticism the rookie 23-year-old offensive tackle possesses. In high school, the Memphis native averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds a game to earn All-State honors in basketball and placed second in the Tennessee state track and field championships in the discus.

Being the most experienced offensive lineman, Jason Brown knew he would have to become a leader. He just didn't know his new role would mean a new position. The Ravens confirmed yesterday that Brown is the new starting center and the focal point of a revamped offensive line. "We felt like it was a natural to move him back because the center is the leader of your offensive line," offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said after passing camp yesterday. "Right now, he's the leader." Brown's shift from left guard to center is one of many changes to the offensive line.

Spalding's All-Metro junior midfielder Christine Nairn has long had a knack for finding a corner of the goal and her shots can come from just about anywhere in the offensive third of the field. With defending Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champion John Carroll visiting yesterday in a rematch of last year's girls soccer title game, Nairn twice found corners, and her second goal in the 64th minute helped the No. 1 Cavaliers earn a 2-2 tie against the No. 5 Patriots.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- The Orioles have 23 relievers in camp, but only two of them, Todd Williams and John Parrish, were on last season's Opening Day roster, and neither of them has pitched this spring because of injuries. Their projected closer, Chris Ray, doesn't have a career major league save, and their top left-handed setup man, Tim Byrdak, has only 41 major league appearances since the 2000 season. Less than a month before another baseball season begins, the Orioles' bullpen stands as the team's biggest question mark.

If Brian Roberts can establish himself as a player who belongs in the big leagues this time, he'll probably look back and smile at how miserable he felt last year when the Orioles demoted him. The Orioles recalled Roberts from Triple-A Ottawa last week when starting second baseman Jerry Hairston broke a bone in his right foot, derailing what might have been an All-Star season. For Roberts, the injury to his good friend represented another opportunity to prove himself, but he still thinks the best chance came exactly one year earlier.
