In talking to Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette on Thursday, I asked whether he had made any progress on the club's pending free agents,a group that includes pitchers Scott Feldman and Jason Hammel, infielder Brian Roberts and outfielder Nate McLouth. “No," Duquette answered. "We haven't had any discussions on those.” I'm sure some of you will find that alarming. I don't. First, Duquette's juggling other responsibilities, including the pitching coach search. Secondly, this is typical of Octobers.

Editorial from The Aegis | April 24, 2014
On a visit to the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum, it is possible to see on display carved ducks valued at hundreds and even thousands of dollars each alongside artifacts - rusted carving tools, spent shotgun cartridges, old wooden boxes and the like - dating to the late 1800s and early 1900s that are of substantially lesser value on the open market. There's certainly an argument to be made, however, that such artifacts are of comparable cultural value, especially when displayed together in such a way as to tell the story of how people lived on the shores of the Susquehanna Flats in a long faded time.

When should I get a property appraised?An appraisal is a professional opinion of the value of a property. Value can be based on the cost to replace a property, the income a property generates, a property's market value or a combination of these.You might want a replacement cost appraisal to make sure you have adequate insurance coverage to rebuild if your house burns down. But at the time you buy a house, you're primarily interested in an appraisal that's based on market value.An appraisal completed by a professional appraiser is required by lenders before they'll approve your home loan.

Publishing a commentary about Bitcoin by an institutional economics professor is as responsible as letting a village witch doctor give lectures on the merits of proton radiation therapy to treat cancer ( "The Bitcoin myth," March 3). Peter Morici is not qualified to explain Bitcoin because he cannot understand it technically nor can he accept it ideologically. Crypto-currencies like Bitcoin fly in direct opposition to his indoctrination. His commentary is not mere schadenfreude - his ego needs to be right about Bitcoin or else he has dedicated his life to perpetuating a lie. Mr. Morici writes, "The virtual currency was supposed to provide a safer, more private and less costly alternative to money issued by governments.

Dear Mr. Azrael, For the first time ever in my experience [as an attorney], I have been consulted by a client regarding a lowering of the state assessment on three of her properties, one of which is her residence. These properties are in the 1800 block of Madison Ave., and were assessed down from $111,200, $102,720 and $85,200, respectively, to $75,000 each. This area borders on what is known as Bolton Hill, where rates are much higher. The owner feels this is a devaluation which will adversely affect the property values and market prices in her area, which many residents are attempting to upgrade, and is considering an appeal.

DALLAS - Southwest Airlines Co., not so little anymore, has the highest market value of any U.S. airline. Southwest Chairman Herbert D. Kelleher used Southwest's annual meeting last week to do a little bragging about a decade in which Southwest's growth and profit roared ahead almost unabated. Southwest is the largest airline operating at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. Kelleher said Southwest shares were worth about $757 million at the end of the 1980s. Today, the market value of its shares totals more than $10.6 billion, he told shareholders.

Orioles majority owner Peter Angelos' initial bid to retain pending free-agent pitcher Mike Mussina is a five-year proposal worth $50 million, according to sources familiar with the negotiations. While confirming the club's interest in retaining its most productive pitcher of the past decade, the offer is not considered close to the market value that Mussina insisted last month he will pursue if allowed to enter the free-agent market after this season. Mussina is entering the final installment of a three-year, $20.45 million contract signed in May 1997 at less than market value.

An article in some editions yesterday about the debut of trading in Netscape Communications Corp. shares on the Nasdaq stock market misstated the total market value of the company. At its peak price of $75 a share on the first trading NTC day, the company's market value would have been approximately $2.85 billion. At its closing price of $58.25 that day, Netscape's market value was approximately $2.21 billion.The Sun regrets the error.

One of the most popular electives at my law school is Interviewing, Negotiations, and Counseling (INC).  Students learn the basics of interviewing parties, negotiating agreements and advising clients on their best options. It also has no final exam. I always wanted to take this course but something always got in the way.  Either it wasn't offered or I had other requisites taking my time. So, I'm taking the alternative route to INC: planning a wedding. Sure, it's not in the academic context, but its lessons are just as useful.

We spend a lot of time during the offseason talking about market value. What's the market on free-agent closers? When will the starting pitcher market set itself? And then there's the market on this year's Orioles FanFest autograph vouchers, which went on sale Satrurday morning on the club's website. Some sessions sold out in a matter of minutes, and the entire schedule sold out in 64 minutes, according to the team. I received several emails Saturday from some frustrated fans who said they were unable to purchase vouchers even though they tried right at 10 a.m. Their frustration piqued when they saw the vouchers immediately being posted on Craigslist and eBay for profit.

The mass exodus from the Ravens roster after their Super Bowl victory was triggered by familiar culprits. The age of key veterans and a lack of salary cap space forced the Ravens into bargain-hunting mode as they overhauled a championship squad. A similar scenario probably will unfold after this season because of contractual commitments to six prominent starters. The salary cap figures for defensive tackle Haloti Ngata ($16 million), quarterback Joe Flacco ($14.8 million)

You can't put a value on a father's love, but apparently you can put a price on the chores he does around the house. Insure.com looked at the traditional chores that fathers do at home and put a dollar figure to them using hourly wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As it turns out, dear ol' dad's work amounts to $23,244, up nearly $3,096 from a year ago. “Dads benefited from wage increases for drivers, teachers, coaches and plumbers,” Insure.com's Amy Danise said in a statement.

City Hall is considering selling or leasing 15 historic Baltimore landmarks, including the iconic Shot Tower and stately War Memorial building, which officials believe are underused and could bring the city sorely needed cash. The idea has excited those who say the sites have been neglected and allowed to fall into disrepair. But some preservationists are worried about an uncertain future for buildings they hold dear. "I've never heard about them thinking about anything like this," said Richard S.B. Smith Sr., director of the Friends of Orianda House in Leakin Park, one of the properties to be evaluated.

Synergen's stock price plunged nearly 50 percent yesterday, and the future of the once high-flying biotechnology company fell into doubt, after the company said it was halting human trials of its flagship drug for the treatment of sepsis, an often-fatal kind of bacterial infection.Synergen's announcement followed a series of disappointments for other biotechnology drugs in recent months that have contributed to a protracted bear market for biotech stocks.The Boulder, Colo.-based company said it would discontinue development of the drug Antril because an interim review of data showed that the drug failed to save the lives of patients infected with the disease.

Many Maryland homeowners recently have received new property tax assessment notices from the state. An assessment estimates the current market value of your property. Local governments apply their tax rates to the assessment in determining the annual taxes for the property. Property is reassessed every three years. An increase in your assessment from the old market value to the current market value is equally divided over three years. This "phase-in" is designed to prevent the full increase in value being subject to taxes in one year.

A decision by Towson University officials to return the school's allotment of tickets to Saturday's football game at Maryland was done as a "service" to its fans, athletic director Mike Waddell said. Waddell said the number of tickets available on the "secondary" market had reduced the value and made better seats available at a price lower than what Maryland was offering. Waddell said it had nothing to do with the location of the seats, in the corner of the second deck at Byrd Stadium.

Constellation Energy Group is reportedly in the final stages of takeover negotiations that could see it absorbed by the Chicago-based power company Exelon Corp., a deal that would usher Baltimore's last Fortune 500 company headquarters out of town. For Constellation, the deal comes less than three years after the company narrowly averted bankruptcy and would be the third attempt to sell itself since 2006. Sources familiar with the matter told several publications late Wednesday that Exelon was in late-stage talks to buy Constellation.
