The Ravens have had many public relations blunders through the Ray Rice situation, and they had another major one Monday night. Where was owner Steve Bisciotti? And since he didn't post at a night time news conference, where were the other leaders in the organization -- president Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome? After terminating the contract of running back Ray Rice Monday afternoon, Bisciotti should have appeared before the media to address questions and publicly apologize for the poor judgment made by his franchise.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush's lofty crusade for freedom and democracy in Iraq, and indeed the whole Middle East, is being sabotaged by a few graphic photos from one of Saddam Hussein's old torture chambers near Baghdad. At precisely a time when the occupation of Iraq has been turning more bloody and troublesome, the surfacing of those snapshots of shocking prisoner abuses at the hands of U.S. captors is delivering a devastating blow to America's dwindling image as a moral force. Global airwaves are full of condemnations that the U.S.-led force that went into Iraq to free its people of the barbarities of Mr. Hussein is now guilty of the same kinds of brutalities -- in, no less, the same place.

Amid last year's Opening Day fanfare there was a somber feeling in the press box at Camden Yards -- a reminder we had lost some old friends the previous offseason, including a longtime sportswriter, an Orioles superfan and Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver. That day stung a little bit. In comparison, I imagine this year's opener will feel like the business end of a swarm of angry wasps. Since the end of the 2013 season, the Orioles family lost, among others, former minority owner Tom Clancy and Gold Glove stalwart Paul Blair.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter walked into the interview room near the team's clubhouse after a 9-2 spring training victory over a split squad of the Pittsburgh Pirates at Ed Smith Stadium. With his team averaging nearly eight runs per game, Showalter was in a good mood after slugger Chris Davis had three straight hits to raise his average to.533 while the team batting average rose to .314. The assembled media, mostly from Baltimore and Sarasota publications, began the daily give-and-take with Showalter when perhaps the most pressing question came from Sydney Hudak.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Even though Monica Barlow was the Orioles public relations director - and as part of her job she was the link between Baltimore's baseball team and its fans and media - she never liked the spotlight. I can just imagine what she would think about the fitting tributes she's received since her death Friday morning at the age of 36. “Really?” I could imagine her saying in a high-pitched voice. Monica's battle with Stage IV lung cancer ended Friday after more than four years.

By now, you probably know the names of the politicians involved on both sides of the Harbor Point debate - the ongoing argument over $107 million in public financing for the $1.8 billion waterfront project. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, among other local politicians, has been a vocal supporter of the plan, which she says will bring Baltimore badly needed jobs and eventually swell the city's tax rolls. Councilman Carl Stokes, chairman of the taxation committee, has been a staunch opponent, arguing that the developer shouldn't benefit from public money that would be better used on essential city services.

As it turned out, the teen had cut school to cheer on the team. Officials have since said they didn't know enough at the time to conclusively link the events. The Baltimore Sun wanted to know: How were various city agencies talking about the stabbing in the minutes and hours after it took place?
