When Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia was left without a job just a week before the regular season began this year, there was no doubt in his mind that he would pitch in the major leagues in 2013 if he was given the chance. Garcia - a 15-year major league veteran who won the World Series with the Chicago White Sox in 2005 and is the winningest Venezuelan-born pitcher in baseball history (152 career wins) - didn't need to prove anything after the San Diego Padres released him in late March.

Drawing parallels between government spending policy and household finances has its perils. There's an extraordinary difference in scale, for one thing. And there's the matter that people will often argue against government debt on the grounds that debt amounting to three or four times household income is financially crippling, even though just about everyone who owns a house and a car is carrying at least that much debt. A few realities of debt and finance, however, apply to every situation involving money.

Talented young cornerbacks are at a premium in what has become a pass-happy NFL, but the Ravens feel like they have three of them. And Thursday, they made sure their most accomplished cover man will stay in a Ravens uniform for a long time. Fulfilling one of their offseason priorities, the Ravens reached agreement on a six-year, $50 million deal with Lardarius Webb, who emerged as a shutdown cornerback during the team's run to the AFC championship game last season. Webb, 26, will be in Baltimore next week to take a physical and sign the contract, which includes a $10 million signing bonus and $20 million guaranteed.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar - another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: INVETERATE Human beings are creatures of pattern and habit. We tend to settle in with our favorite patterns over the long haul, and they become inveterate . The word (pronounced in-VET-ur-at) means having a long-established habit or interest or activity that is unlikely to change.

Three years ago, when an ounce of gold cost $312, I pooh-poohed the idea of owning it. "I agree that gold looks better than a Treasury bond on a wrist or a bosom, but as a long-term investment it doesn't seem more attractive than it did a decade ago," I wrote. And: "For the long haul, I'll take a few shares of [Eli] Lilly or any attractive U.S. company over a high-class rock." Since then, gold has risen 70 percent. A Treasury bond has delivered 30 percent. And Lilly stock has returned negative 13 percent, even if you count dividends.

NEWS LAST week that a Chinese state oil company, CNOOC Ltd., had launched an $18.5 billion takeover bid for a California oil company, Unocal Corp., predictably triggered a spasm of shock, anxiety and China-bashing on this side of the Pacific. In Washington, calls rose for holding up the deal on national security grounds, and added urgency was given to mounting concerns about China's resistance to revaluing its currency, its role in U.S. job losses, its ballooning trade surplus with America and its military buildup.

Orioles left fielder and leadoff hitter Nolan Reimold attributes his recent offensive tear to making one small step forward. Literally. Reimold, who entered Wednesday's game against the White Sox with home runs in each of his last four games, said he's made a small adjustment at the plate that is helping him see the ball better. “I have been striding too far, and it was making my head move a little bit and I was pulling off,” Reimold said. “So I've been working on having a smaller stride.

The press and public have understandably focused in recent weeks on high-profile appointments such as the secretaries of state, defense and treasury as President Barack Obama builds his second-term team. They also should pay close attention to the search for a man or woman to serve as commissioner of the Social Security Administration - a post central to the national welfare and, with a six-year term, an appointment that will continue into the next presidency. The Social Security Administration, headquartered just outside Baltimore in Woodlawn, touches the lives and pocketbooks of nearly every American.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he doesn't pay attention to the standings until August. For the past 14 seasons, Orioles fans haven't had the need to either, their team usually already long out of contention by this time of year. "I haven't looked at them today," Showalter said before Wednesday's series finale in New York against the Yankees, holding back a smirk, "but I have an idea. " With two months to play, the Orioles find themselves in a tight playoff race. The addition of a second wild-card spot in each league makes it even more interesting.

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson, an undrafted rookie from Florida, turned heads during offseason workouts by blazing past defenders for a few long touchdown passes. Early in training camp, the 23-year-old speedster has been running routes with fellow wide receivers Tandon Doss and LaQuan Williams on the second unit. “D.T. has done a good job. For a guy that was pretty much off the street coming in -- don't know much about him -- he's done very well,” wide receivers coach Jim Hostler said.

THE BALTIMORE school-aid package passed by the legislature and signed by the governor last week is a huge victory for school reform. But hard work lies ahead.First, of course, will be the nuts and bolts of implementing the new management structure -- appointing a new board, finding the right leaders for the system and then actually putting in place the administrative changes that should lead to better student achievement. This needs to happen as quickly as possible, given the inevitable confusion and sagging morale caused by the uncertainties of the past year.
