Signing Pro Bowl special teams player Corey Graham from the Chicago Bears is a classic Baltimore Ravens move: He bolsters a major weakness for the Ravens, can also play nickel back and likely came at the right price. Think Haruki Nakamura and Chris Carr, but only better. "I believe it's a better situation for me and a better opportunity with a fresh start," Graham told the Chicago Tribune . "I gave the Bears every opportunity but they moved on. All around, Baltimore is just a better deal for me and my family.

As mentioned in yesterday's column , Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped.  On Monday's RAW, that was made official when the Authority vacated the title and announced it would be put on the line in a seven-man ladder match. They announced the first two participants of the match quickly, saying Alberto Del Rio earned his shot last week, and also put Randy Orton into the match.  Later in the night, Sheamus and Cesaro also earned their shots in qualifying matches.  You can read about my early thoughts on who should win the match in yesterday's column, but there are two questions that remain after RAW. The first is who will the three remaining competitors be?

No one should have been surprised when Orioles third baseman Manny Machado came out of surgery Monday and the timetable for his recovery suddenly was extended into the 2014 season. When you're dealing with a young man who is expected to be one of the greatest players of his generation, slowplaying his return from a reconstructive knee operation makes perfect sense. The only reason that the outlook seemed so much rosier three weeks ago was because of the natural inclination of everyone involved - the player, the team and the medical staff - to project the best-case scenario until there is compelling evidence to the contrary.

When I ate at the first Tsunami in Annapolis eight years ago, the name made perfect sense. A tidal wave of noise hit you when you walked into the dining room. Every table and every stool was taken at this popular Asian fusion grill and bar. The wait for the food was long, and being there was almost unbearable. But dinner was excellent. I haven't been back since, but I eagerly awaited the opening of Tsunami No. 2 in Baltimore, in the Tack Factory complex behind Little Italy. The owners are savvy restaurateurs, and I was sure they would avoid the mistakes of their first venture.

When Kip Fulks went pet shopping, he weighed the fitness implications of his decision. What good is a cat, really? You can't chase mice together. A trophy poodle or droopy dachshund makes perfect sense -- for sedentary people. He opted for a pair of German shorthaired pointers. Hunting dogs. Retrieving dogs. Dogs with the metabolism of a Mexican jumping bean. "I thought if I buy these guys," Fulks recalls, "I'm going to have to work out the next 10 years." He usually starts the day by taking Browning and Remington on a 2 1/2 -mile, early-morning run around his neighborhood (for years in Federal Hill; as of a few weeks ago, on the Eastern Shore)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- One makes no sense. The other makes perfect sense.The teams playing for the NCAA basketball championship tomorrow night are complete opposites.Syracuse, which beat Mississippi State in one semifinal yesterday at the Meadowlands, makes no sense.Kentucky, which beat Massachusetts in the other semifinal, makes perfect sense.Syracuse lost six of nine games at one point during the season.Kentucky won 27 in a row at one point.Syracuse lost to three teams -- Miami, West Virginia and Seton Hall -- that didn't make the NCAA tournament.

Of all the pledges supposedly uttered in the din of the 2002 gubernatorial race, candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s promise to put a state agency in Prince George's County is one that we could have easily chalked up to campaign exuberance. At the time, it would have made perfect sense - in a campaign kind of way - for the Republican hopeful to appeal to voters by announcing that, if elected, he would bring some of the state's largesse to their county. That was four years ago. What we're hearing now about how the administration intends to move the Maryland Department of Planning to Largo makes no sense at all. Unless, of course, we chalk it up again to campaign exuberance.

If you're surprised that Buck Showalter is about to become the next manager of the Orioles, you probably haven't been paying attention. But, at this point in consecutive losing season No. 13, who could blame you for that? Showalter has been the leading candidate for weeks, and probably the only candidate since he had his third interview/meeting with club officials earlier this month. The only thing that is curious is the timing of putting him into the dugout Tuesday night at Camden Yards.

What happens when The Rapture hits suburbia? What happens to those left behind when God appears to randomly harvest members of the human race? A mother here, a daughter there, a husband and both children there. Suddenly gone. Snap! That is the subject of Tom Perrotta's book "The Leftovers. " It is three years after what is being called "the sudden departure," and Mapleton, an upper-middle-class small town in New Jersey, is trying to find its way back to normal. Meanwhile, a handful of cults materialize — some benign, some evil — as people awaken to the fact that they might not have much time left on Earth.

There are a handful of numbers that can make a grown guy groan. Age. Weight. Cholesterol. Your 401(k) balance. But Prince George's County resident Quang Le discovered a truly frightening number recently when he went online, clicked on his bakery/deli business's Washington Gas bill for January and did a double-take. He saw "Total Due" followed by "$14,020.85." "I was expecting $1,300 since we had a busy month," Le said of the bakery's extra prep time to make banh chung, traditional Vietnamese Tet cakes, in time for February's New Year's celebrations.

In the wake of Hurricane Isabel, getting his Eastern Tech players together for Saturday's practice "was a two-day ordeal," said coach Marc Mesaros. "Most of my kids, a lot of whom live in the Middle River and Essex areas, they're without power, so we had to use cell phones, stuff like that," said Mesaros, whose team could not practice on Thursday and Friday because of the area-wide school cancellations. "One of our players had a tree fall on a car and on his house. Another player said his house was flooded.
