Extreme cold temperatures in the Baltimore region overnight and into Friday morning have disrupted Metro service throughout the city and its surrounding suburbs, forcing cars out of service and decreasing the capacity of trains. Trains are operating on normal schedules, but are arriving at stations with only four cars, instead of the normal six, officials said. The entire Metro system is being impacted. The problems could last several days as temperatures remain low through the weekend, said Paul Shepard, a Maryland Transit Administration spokesman, on Friday morning.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles pitching prospect Tim Berry's ascension from 50th-round pick to the organization's 40-man roster is a remarkable one. But when you hear the 22-year-old talk about his progress - and how realistic and mature he seems to be about his bright future - it doesn't seem so surprising. The left-hander is one of the Orioles organization's high risers. Following a year at high Class-A Frederick in which he went 11-7 with a 3.85 ERA on the season and won nine of his last 13 decisions, Berry was dominant in the Arizona Fall League, pitching to a 1.84 ERA in 14 2/3 innings.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- This is the time in the offseason when savvy clubs are able to make some under-the-radar minor league signings that can help them down the road. And while the Orioles' signings of Delmon Young and Alexi Casilla over the past few days aren't groundbreaking -- I know a lot of fans just see it as more frustrating examples of bargain-bin shopping -- and by no means are they going to push the team over the top, they definitely fill some needs. Because of his strong splits against left-handed pitching, Young -- signed to a minor league deal Monday evening -- can fill the right-handed designated hitter spot left open when the Orioles traded Danny Valencia to the Kansas City Royals.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Today is the first official workout day for Orioles minicamp here in Sarasota, and it's currently raining. So, instead of working outside, camp participants will retreat to the indoor batting cages and into meetings for now. The players who have reported today include pitchers Tommy Hunter, Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, T.J. McFarland, Steve Johnson, Ryan Webb, Eduardo Rodriguez, Josh Stinson, Mike Wright, Brad Brach, Liam Hendriks, Tim...

Heading into this season, coach G.G. Smith - and perhaps every opposing coach on the schedule for the Loyola Maryland men's basketball team - knew that the backcourt of senior Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons) and junior R.J. Williams (St. Frances) would anchor the squad. And the emergence of sophomore Eric Laster has furthered strengthened that unit, which makes the team's lack of production from the frontcourt somewhat puzzling. The trio of senior Jordan Latham (City) and sophomore Jarred Jones (John Carroll)

At the start of each offseason, as we look ahead to what the Ravens will do to get better, we talk largely about the players they could draft (and also whom they might consider if they take a dip in the free-agent waters). We sometimes forget that last year's rookie class will have a bigger impact than this upcoming one. Head coach John Harbaugh talked about that during Wednesday's annual "State of the Ravens" news conference, that players often make the biggest leap in their development from the first year to the second.

The year 2013 was, for the most part, a positive one on the Baltimore dining scene, except perhaps for trend-spotters. For every sign, there was a counter-sign. The sudden closing of a restaurant was followed by an unexpected, or at least not highly publicized, appearance of a new place. One restaurant would make itself over into an informal version of its formal self, and across town, a fine-dining establishment would open. Small plates continued to spin. Farm-to-table concepts continued to matter, but restaurants started to present them differently.

Less than two days after Gov. Martin O'Malley declared that the state's online insurance marketplace finally worked for most consumers, a server crashed Monday, the call center became overwhelmed and the governor announced he was bringing in another contractor to improve the website. Some consumers and advocacy groups reported Monday that the website where consumers can buy health plans under the federal Affordable Care Act is easier to navigate. But others said they are still running into frozen screens, error messages and other problems that have plagued Maryland Health Connection since it launched Oct. 1. "It's crashing all over the place," said Peter Beilenson, who has served in local health departments and now runs the insurance co-op Evergreen Health Cooperative Inc. He spoke after several failed attempts to enroll people through the exchange.

Thirty years ago, the governors in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania; the mayor of D.C.; and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator signed the first Chesapeake Bay Agreement, solemnly pledging to stem the flow of pollutants and bring the bay into compliance with the Clean Water Act. As a state senator, I optimistically witnessed this event and thought the job would be done in a decade. But today - after more detailed pledges to reduce nutrients, sediment and toxic chemicals - we are still far from meeting these commitments.
