It may be the oddest timing for a contract extension announcement in recent memory - on the eve of the first American League Championship Series game at Camden Yards in 17 years and just weeks away from free agency. But the Orioles took care of a major chunk of offseason business Thursday by agreeing to a three-year deal worth $40 million with shortstop J.J. Hardy. He's locked up through 2017 with a team option for 2018. “Is there ever a bad time to announce J.J. continuing as an Oriole?

Left-handed reliever Ron Villone has been released by the Washington Nationals. The Nationals signed Villone to a minor league contract last month and invited him to spring training.

Ahead of new rules requiring chain restaurants to post calorie counts for their menu items, some of the restaurants are voluntarily introducing lower calorie selections. The new items tend to be salads rather than the main attractions such as burgers and pizza, but they contain an average of 60 fewer calories or a reduction of 12 percent, researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found. The researchers looked at new menu items in 2012 and 2013, ahead of new rules to offer the public nutritional information required by the Affordable Care Act. And they said the results, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, could be the beginning of a trend in calorie reduction at fast food restaurants that aids the obesity epidemic.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles reduced their camp roster to 46 (with nine non-roster invitees) on Friday by optioning injured right-hander Dylan Bundy to Double-A Bowie. It was a procedural move, because Bundy needed to be placed on the minor league disabled list by Friday. “It just changes where I am going to be,” Bundy said. “I'm going to be working with [minor league medical coordinator Dave Walker] down there [at the minor league complex] and that's who I've been working with the first six months of my rehab.

The regular Friday night Gathering, Baltimore's traveling food truck rally, is scheduled to return to Stratford University in Little Italy on Oct. 18. This Gathering introduces a new wrinkle, or option, that event producers might keep as a semi-permanent thing if it goes well. On Friday -- in addition to the regular dining option, which consists of finding a truck that's selling something you want to eat and buying it from them -- there will be a VIP option. UPDATE: The VIP option has been postpotned until Nov. 1, when the Gathering comes to McHenry Row. The Oct. 18 Gathering at Stratford University is still on, but without the VIP option.

Israel is currently sounding off over what it views as the limited effectiveness of economic sanctions as a way of stopping Iran's nuclear weapons program. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has criticized President Obama's failure to specify what would provoke a U.S. military strike against existing Iran's nuclear facilities. Mr. Obama's current wait-and-see policy is clearly the wrong approach. Iran has no moral right to weapons of mass destruction, while Israel does have a moral right to prevent Iran from obtaining them.

Following the Orioles' 5-3 win over the Royals on Sunday afternoon, the club optioned right-handed reliever Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Norfolk. Socolovich has a 6.97 ERA in 10 1/3 relief innings with the Orioles. He allowed three hits and one earned runs in two outings over 3 1/3 innings since his most-recent call up Wednesday, which came after the Orioles bullpen was taxed by a 14-inning game Tuesday. The Orioles will likely recall right-hander Jason Berken, who will be used out of the bullpen in long relief behind a left-handed starter.

When Mary Casterline was diagnosed with invasive carcinoma of the breast in mid-April, she knew she was fortunate. Her cancer was very treatable and she had a lot of options for both treatment and beyond. Casterline's doctors explained that she had the choice between radiation and lumpectomy (removing just the tumor but preserving the breast) or a mastectomy (complete removal of the breast). If she opted for mastectomy, she could choose to reconstruct the breast, either with an implant or via free tissue transfer (also known as "tissue flap" or "trans flap")

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton won't lie about it. Yes, in the past year, he considered what it would be like to wear a different uniform, to get a second chance elsewhere. Heading into last fall, Britton had struggled through consecutive rocky seasons in which a shoulder injury, lack of command and cracking confidence had thrust him into a career crossroads. Once considered a future ace, Britton weathered a brutal final month last season, pitching poorly in a spot start against the Cleveland Indians before being jettisoned to instructional league while his teammates were fighting in a pennant race.

The Orioles announced two options Wednesday for fans to purchase American League Division Series tickets, and both options are available only online. In order to guarantee the chance to purchase postseason tickets, Orioles fans can place a minimum $250 per seat deposit on a full or partial season-ticket plan for next season. The deadline in order to guarantee the opportunity to buy tickets for Game 1 of the ALDS and other potential playoff matchups is midnight tonight. Those fans will be able to take part in an exclusive, online-only presale for tickets Thursday at 10 a.m. After midnight tonight, deposits for 2015 season tickets no longer will guarantee fans the chance to participate in the ALDS presale, the club said.

Problem gamblers would no longer be able to ban themselves from Maryland casinos for life under a change being considered to a state program designed to protect hundreds of gamblers from themselves. The Maryland State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency might remove the lifetime self-ban option because of concerns that it is excessive and redundant, Stephen Martino, the agency's director, said Tuesday. "We're probably going to change the program in the next couple of months," Martino said.

In Robert Reuter's letter to the editor ( "Maglev is not the answer," Sept. 12), he identifies the great need to upgrade the Northeast Corridor's infrastructure. The proposal of an SCMAGLEV train system between Washington, D.C. and New York with an initial phase between Baltimore and Washington represents an opportunity to transform the mega-region. Undertaking this project, we will ensure that we can scale for future needs - both those we can foresee and those we cannot. With SCMAGLEV, we will choose a system technologically superior to conventional high-speed rail with extreme performance advantages.

If your grades and SAT scores are less than stellar, you still have a shot at getting into Goucher College with a two-minute video. Starting with applicants for next year's class, Goucher announced Thursday that it will give students the option of submitting a video they record in lieu of transcripts or college admission exams. Officials say the move is designed to help those who might have difficulty navigating the complexity of the college application process. Though colleges across the country have allowed students to submit videos as a supplement to their application, Goucher officials believe the college will be the first to judge applicants primarily on the video.

President Obama, in his determination to get American foreign policy off what he has called "a perpetual war footing," must take care now not to box himself in with any more comments about "red lines" that restrict his options. As he appraises the growing threats to U.S. security from the Islamic State, the jihadist group that has taken over much of Syria and Iraq, he must make clear his continuing prerogative to take military action in legitimate self-defense. That remains so despite his repeated statements, made as if to ease fears at home and abroad, that there is "no military solution" to the crises in Iraq andUkraine.
