CLEVELAND -- With roughly a week left before Tuesday's 4 p.m. trade deadline, the Orioles are continuing to search for improvements. And it is becoming increasingly clear that adding a corner infield bat with the ability to get on base at a high clip is a major priority - perhaps neck-and-neck with acquiring a starting pitcher. In the past few weeks, the Orioles have had contact with the San Diego Padres about third baseman Chase Headley, the Philadelphia Phillies about third baseman Placido Polanco and the Chicago Cubs about first baseman Bryan LaHair, among others, according to several industry sources.

Before yesterday, Navy backup quarterback Aaron Polanco was known mostly for his solid, steady play during mop-up duty. But all that changed in an instant yesterday when he came on for injured starter Craig Candeto and nearly became the first Navy quarterback to beat Notre Dame since Roger Staubach before falling, 30-23. Though Polanco didn't do anything jaw-dropping statistically, he kept Navy composed after Candeto, the team's leading rusher, had to leave on the game's fourth play with a sprained ankle.

Navy's 2004 football team stumbled out of the starting blocks last night, turning the ball over three times in the first half and salvaging a halftime tie with Duke only because its defense refused to break down. But once the Midshipmen got rolling behind quarterback Aaron Polanco, there was no stopping a second-half revival, and they scored their first victory over an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent since 1996 by beating the Blue Devils, 27-12, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Navy senior quarterback Aaron Polanco feels the weight of recent history. Over two years, while playing understudy to Craig Candeto, Polanco watched the Midshipmen repeat the past, then break drastically from it. And one year after transforming themselves from doormats to winners, after erasing the worst three-year stretch in the program's history by making a bowl-game trip and grabbing the coveted Commander-in-Chief's Trophy by beating their two service...

DETROIT -- When the Detroit Tigers' Placido Polanco separated his shoulder in mid-August, the sporting world barely took notice. He was a role player, after all, a smooth-hitting, good-fielding second baseman who rarely made headlines. He also was Detroit's glue, and the Tigers struggled through their worst month of the season without him. Polanco returned at the end of September and then excelled in the American League Championship Series, hitting .529 with two RBIs in four games to win the ALCS Most Valuable Player Award.

Navy football coach Paul Johnson admitted last week that a year ago, watching his team play its final spring scrimmage didn't exactly fill him with confidence for the upcoming season. "I knew we might be in trouble last year when the second offense got about 300 yards in one half against our No. 1 defense," Johnson said. "That might have been a precursor of things to come." In that game, the first team offense and defense barely defeated the second unit, and Navy finished with a 2-10 record the following fall.

Because of the nature of Navy's option offense, the quarterback usually takes a pounding. Aaron Polanco received his Saturday in the 27-9 loss to Notre Dame. As a result, Polanco is practicing this week while sporting a red jersey, which symbolizes that he is off limits to contact. But he said yesterday he will definitely start in Saturday's game against Rice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. "I'm not missing anything," said Polanco. "I'm just banged up pretty bad from the game.

The jury has reached a verdict in the case of Aaron Polanco. And the verdict is not guilty. One of the most pressing questions for Navy entering the season was whether Polanco would be a worthy successor to quarterback Craig Candeto, whose leadership and grit had played a major role in the team's 2003 resurgence. As a starter, would Polanco take firm control? Would he make wise decisions? Would he make the proper reads while running the intricate option offense? After four games, all victories by the Midshipmen, the answers are yes, yes and yes. Coach Paul Johnson was effusive in his praise of the senior after Saturday's 29-26 win over Vanderbilt, citing Polanco's "great individual plays" and his ability to remain upright until he spotted an opening in the defense.

• On a Notre Dame men's lacrosse team where everyone contributes, Clarksville's Jim Marlatt has grabbed the spotlight. The River Hill grad had a career-high five-point day in the NCAA first-round win over Yale. But it's depth that has been the key: 19 different players have hit the back of the net for the Irish, who play Virginia on Sunday in the NCAA quarterfinals. "We're just looking for the opening guy and whoever that guys is at the end of the play is going to get the goal," said Marlatt, a 2012 Big East Conference first-team honoree.

In his own words, he has always been "one play away" from becoming the Navy quarterback. That one play turned into one season, then two, then three, as first Craig Candeto and then Aaron Polanco proved both effective and able to absorb the punishment that accompanies the position. Finally, as a senior, Lamar Owens is no longer a play away. He is firmly entrenched as the starter, has been voted the offensive captain by his teammates and is clearly on center stage. The tricky triple-option offense with which coach Paul Johnson has turned around the Midshipmen now is entrusted to a 5-foot-9, 185-pound whippet who has appeared primarily at mop-up time and on special teams through three years.

Will the Polanco family of Wimberley, Texas, make another huge imprint on the Navy football program this autumn? A year ago, Aaron Polanco emerged from Craig Candeto's shadow to quarterback the Midshipmen to their most successful record (10-2) in 99 years, an Emerald Bowl victory, the Commander in Chief's Trophy that is presented to the winner of the competition among the three major military academies, and a No. 24 national ranking. He enjoyed one of the most productive seasons ever by a Navy quarterback, leading the team in scoring with 16 touchdowns, rushing with nearly 1,000 net yards, setting season and career records for passing yards per attempt and even catching two passes in the bowl game to top the team's receivers.

The two primary units rescued Navy's ineffective kicking game from a potentially disastrous performance yesterday as the Midshipmen remained unbeaten by staving off Vanderbilt, 29-26, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Senior co-captains Aaron Polanco and Josh Smith were particularly instrumental in Navy's fourth straight victory in a seesaw game witnessed by 32,809, who also saw the Mids' Eric Roberts become the first in school history to eclipse 1,000 yards in both rushing and receiving.

PHILADELPHIA - First, quarterback Aaron Polanco rolled to his left, spun away from a would-be Army tackle and sprinted 10 yards for the game's first touchdown. A few minutes later, fullback Kyle Eckel shed an arm tackle at the line of scrimmage, then bolted 23 yards up the middle and into the end zone. Five minutes later, safety Josh Smith leaped high to make an interception, then sprinted 67 yards untouched for the score that demoralized the Black Knights. With that third unanswered touchdown, Navy had set the tone for its 42-13 rout at Lincoln Financial Field.
