Crafty Guy routed the field in the $40,000 Primer Stakes for 2-year-olds yesterday at Laurel Park. The winner completed the six-furlong distance for trainer Jerry Robb in an impressive 1 minute, 8.98 seconds and paid $7. Jockey Mark Johnston hustled the son of Crafty Prospector out of the gate and clicked off fractions of 22, 44.3 and 56.2 seconds. Morning-line favorite Mt. Carson loomed boldly turning for home, but Johnston roused his mount, and they powered to a 3 1/2 -length victory.

As the saying goes "No man's life, liberty or property are safe while the legislature is in session. " Nowhere is that more true than in the Maryland General Assembly, when the checkbooks and liberties of average Marylanders are under a yearly assault from Gov. Martin O'Malley and the General Assembly leadership.  There are thousands of bills that will be before the General Assembly this year. Many of them will be passed with zero testimony by average citizens and by unanimous votes in the General Assembly.

The All Rap Round Robin has become a refreshing staple of Baltimore's underground hip-hop scene. That tradition continues Friday night at Floristree, and it's only getting bigger. Now in its fifth year, the annual showcase expands to 12 acts from last year's nine. (Thirteen if you include Secret Weapon Dave, the night's DJ.) That's a lot of performers, and you'd be forgiven for not knowing all of them. You can read my primer on the night's bill here . It'll be published in Wednesday's b and in the weekend edition of the Sun. Words can only do this unique event so much justice.

Today marks another significant day in the hot stove season because it is the annual tender deadline, the day when teams must tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players. In tendering a player a contract, it ensures that the player will be under team control for the 2014 season. If teams decide to not tender a contract to an eligible player, that player becomes a free agent. As far as the Orioles are concerned, there's very little intrigue to today because Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette told The Sun last week that the club would tender all nine of its arbitration-eligible players.

After a 12-year absence, a horse trained by H. Steward Mitchell returned to the winner's circle yesterday in the Primer Stakes.It was the fifth time in 17 runnings that a Mitchell runner has won the race, which jokingly has been referred to as the H. Steward Mitchell Stakes.In the late 1970s, the Bowie-based trainer won consecutive runnings of the race with Iron Derby, Iron Streak and Rare Wind, horses he had purchased in the Florida 2-year-old Sales. Then Mitchell won again in 1981 with Gay Christopher and was second in 1987 with Russian Diplomacy.

First things first: Grantland has a terrific look-back at Hunter S. Thompson's "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved. " I always start the Derby primer with a link to this story -- and by always, I mean I also did it last year -- and this adds even more context to how the story came about. A very popular question I receive from fellow Baltimoreans upon my return to our fair city by the bay is: How does the Derby compare to Preakness? The answer I ended up giving usually went something like this: The Preakness debauchery seems to be compressed into one day and in one spot, the infield, where once upon a time people ran across the portable toilets for sport.

The NFL offseason heats up on Tuesday when the free agency period begins and the NFL draft will take place next month. In anticipation of those events, blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will look at six key positions the Ravens might address in free agency and the NFL draft in the days leading up to the start of free agency. The Ravens are heading into life without inside linebacker Ray Lewis, but they must also prepare for life without free safety Ed Reed, who is also expected to be patrolling the halls of the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday.

There's only a month to go until the start of the most anticipated college lacrosse season, well, ever. Why the excitement? There's the return of Cornell attackman Rob Pannell, the 2011 USILA National Player of the Year, who missed most of last season with a broken foot, but really what will make 2013 different is that the game itself will be different -- much different. Sweeping rules changes , including the adoption of a shot clock for the first time, have been crafted to make the "fastest game on two feet" even faster.

Although it's commonplace for opera-goers to attend preperformance lectures and study libretti before attending unfamiliar operas, such preparation is seldom part of ordinary theater-going. This changed when Colonial Players Inc. scheduled a challenging work by a major playwright with Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, realizing that audience members might welcome some advance preparation. Winner of the 1993 Laurence Olivier award for best play when it premiered in London, and two years later on Broadway the winner of the New York Drama Critics Award, Stoppard's Arcadia moves beyond the usual human appetites to the desire to know about our surroundings in landscape architecture, thermodynamics, the chaos theory, literature and Romanticism.
