The Baltimore Orioles have traded Jim Johnson, a top closer in baseball for the past few years, to the Oakland A's for second baseman Jemile Weeks, who spent more time in the minor leagues than the majors last season ( "As Johnson leaves for Oakland, Orioles look for new answer at closer inside, outside club," Dec. 3). Really? While majority owner Peter Angelos is a savvy businessman, I do not understand why he allows his team to wallow in the wading pool while the Red Sox and Yankees are going after the deep water, free agent sharks.

There are big political contributors, and then there are BIG contributors. Count Baltimore trial lawyer and Orioles owner Peter Angelos among the latter. Angelos has donated at least $1.22 million, mostly to super PACs backing Democrats, according to the latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. And he's not the only Marylander in this seven-figure club. J.W. Marriott Jr., executive chairman of Marriott International in Bethesda, gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Usery next week will take on an added sense of urgency.

IT IS SO difficult to void a guaranteed contract that the New York Yankees chose not to attempt it after leaked grand jury testimony revealed that slugger Jason Giambi had admitted to using steroids. The Major League Baseball Players Association would have fought back with every weapon in its substantial legal arsenal, and the union's success rate in cases involving an arbitrator is so good that the Yankees must have figured that it just wouldn't be worth the trouble. Orioles owner Peter Angelos isn't built that way. The Orioles announced yesterday that they had placed troubled pitcher Sidney Ponson on waivers for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release, invoking a clause in the standard players contract to justify refusing to pay him the remaining $10 million or so on his guaranteed contract.

Brian Roberts tried to stick to his routine. He woke up early, surfed the Internet and worked out. When he returned to his Arizona home, he had hoped to relax. But there was no way yesterday could be normal. Roberts, the Orioles' two-time All-Star second baseman, told The Sun on Monday night that he had taken steroids once in 2003 but hasn't taken any since. The admission came four days after his name surfaced in Sen. George Mitchell's report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball.

The "Free the Birds" rally was a hoot. The organizers and participants should be proud of the commotion they stirred up. They made national news and goaded Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos into a name-calling fit. But as they chanted "sell the team" from the upper deck Thursday, hopefully they realized they were only making their fantasy less likely to occur. Take it from someone who has spent years condemning various decisions Angelos has made, often inciting his ire: In this odd calculus, criticisms and suggestions tend to produce the opposite of their intended effect.

WHEN I HEARD that nine Miss USA hopefuls were coming to M&T Bank Stadium for a Ravens instructional clinic and flag football game on Thursday, I had a tough decision to make. My kid had a baseball game the same day in Philadelphia, and I've only seen him play a couple of times since he went off to college, so I carefully weighed my family obligations, the overwhelming urge to live vicariously through the accomplishments of my children and my desire to see a bunch of beautiful women running around in short shorts and tight T-shirts.

Angelos and the sport's president resulted in significant progress on protecting the club from a new rival 40 miles to the south. An announcement by baseball officials of their intention to relocate the Montreal Expos to Washington could come as early as today, said District of Columbia Councilman Phil Mendelson, who spoke yesterday with Mark Touhey, chairman of the Washington Sports & Entertainment Commission.

MILWAUKEE -- A two-hour meeting by Major League Baseball's executive council produced no final decision yesterday on whether the struggling Montreal Expos will move next season to Washington, but it made plain the chief obstacle to baseball's leading relocation plan: Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos. Angelos, one of eight team owners who attended the closed-door meeting in Commissioner Bud Selig's downtown office, made his case for the first time formally that relocating a team so close to Baltimore would threaten the Orioles financially and hurt their ability to compete.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos has become increasingly resigned to seeing the Montreal Expos play in Washington next year, based on the information he has gathered from ownership circles, Orioles officials said yesterday. Club sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity said there was an uneasy feeling at the B&O warehouse yesterday, one day before what could be a landmark in the long, grueling relocation process. Commissioner Bud Selig has called for the owners' Executive Council to meet today at his downtown Milwaukee office to discuss the Expos' future.

O's fans should worry about wins, not payroll The fans' and media's preoccupation with the cost of major league baseball players is bewildering. Unless they believe that Orioles owner Peter Angelos is going to send them a dividend check if the team makes a profit, player salaries and other operating costs should be irrelevant to fans. All we want is a team that is competitive each year and occasionally contends for a championship. When Mr. Angelos bought the team, he knew he was going to be in a division with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, two teams that have commitments to winning.
