Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman agreed Monday to a $30.25, six-year contract with the Reds, who view him as an addition to their rotation down the road. The 21-year-old gained notoriety during the World Baseball Classic in March, when he pitched well against Australia and badly against Japan, throwing his fastball around 100 mph. Chapman defected in July. He threw a bullpen session for major league teams in Houston last month. Agent Randy Hendricks said between six and eight teams were strongly interested in Chapman.

Republican gubernatorial candidate said Larry Hogan indicated Wednesday that his opposition to state financing of the construction of Baltimore's Red Line and another large transit project doesn't necessarily mean forever. Hogan continued to insist, as he has since launching his campaign, that the state cannot afford to begin building the $2.6 billion Red Line and $2.4 billion Purple Line In the Washington suburbs at this time.  “I'm not really opposed to the Red Line or the Purple Line and both of them I think are worth considering and I'm not even opposed to continuing along the planning and engineering phases, but quite frankly, you know, we've robbed a billion dollars out of the Transportation Trust Fund,” Hogan said.

A memorial service for Arthur Francis "Reds" Hucht, who coached swimmers for more than 50 years, will be held at 1 p.m. Jan. 21 at Calvert Hall College High School. Mr. Hucht, who was 95, died of a stroke Tuesday at his daughter's home in Spotsylvania, Va. "He was a fascinating man, a one-of-a-kind guy, independent and strong-willed," said former Evening Sun sports editor Bill Tanton, who first met Mr. Hucht in 1956. Born in Baltimore in 1916, and raised on Chester Street, he began swimming as a boy and competed in Playground Athletic League events.

More than two dozen West Baltimore homeowners are suing the state of Maryland to block the planned Red Line transit project from tunneling beneath their block, contending that they were inappropriately left out of the planning process. They seek more than $22 million in damages for lost property value and emotional distress. "Right now, they've lost so much of the value of their homes," said Lewyn Scott Garrett, one of three attorneys representing the 25 homeowners in the 300 block of N. Fremont Ave. in the city's Poppleton neighborhood.

Only time will tell By Dan Connolly Baltimore Sun Let's see. Aroldis Chapman will take the baseball world by storm with his 100-plus mph fastball and youthful exuberance. After a bit, he'll stop being the flavor of the month, and his lone concentration will be getting major league hitters out on a consistent basis. He'll struggle at times doing that and probably overcompensate and overthrow. He'll eventually have arm trouble, elbow or shoulder, because what he is paid to do — throw a ball 100 times every five days with velocity and accuracy — is not a natural act for an arm. When he recovers from injury, that's when we'll know what the baseball world has in Chapman: Another talented flash in the pan or a lasting commodity that combines natural ability with smarts and conditioning to learn how to pitch and succeed in the big leagues.

It was one of those this-can't-really-be-happening games that both sides would like to forget.And it ended almost as strangely as it began."It certainly wasn't pretty," said coach Tom Showe of the Columbia Reds, who were on the short end of a 15-11 score in a Baltimore-Metro League baseball game Thursday at Hammond High.The Reds gave up 14 hits, walked five, hit one and made two errors. They also failed to cover second base on a potential double-play grounder to the pitcher that resulted in all runners being safe and led to four unearned runs.

Roland Park's Peggy Boutilier feels comfortable anywhere on the hockey field -- except maybe the goal cage.Yesterday, however, that's just where the All-Metro midfielder found herself as the No. 3 Reds made a tremendous last-second stand against unranked Maryvale.Boutilier, who stayed back when Reds keeper Eleanor Cordi stepped up against the attack, lunged to make a stick save with about five seconds left.That preserved a 2-1 victory over visiting Maryvale (0-1-2 overall, 0-1-1 league) in an Association of Independent Schools A Division league game.

As a new business, "MiY Home" and "Sleep Lab Z," we are very excited for the Red Line coming two blocks from our store ( "MTA announces series of 'open houses' on Red Line," Sept. 16). We purchased two connected abandoned buildings in the back of Fells Point (Douglass Place). One factor in doing this was that Baltimore was putting in a Red Line and people could get around and visit us without getting into cars to go shop in the furniture stores outside the city. I know the Red Line is controversial, but many of my neighbors and business peers have planted down roots in homes and businesses along the stops because this project moves Baltimore closer to being a world city.

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.

It was the first day of camp, a busy day at the swimming pool of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. Amid the happy splashing, lifeguard Jalina Ray spotted something that didn't look right. She got the attention of fellow lifeguard Andrew Minkin, and pointed to an 8-year-old thrashing underwater. "I originally thought it was just a kid messing around at the bottom of the pool," said Minkin, 18, a senior at the McDonogh School. "When he didn't surface after 10 seconds, I became really concerned.

After the Orioles' 7-2 victory Saturday night over the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter was preparing himself for a postgame discussion with Adam Jones, whom he was considering sitting for Sunday's regular-season home finale. It would be a short turnaround for an afternoon game, but these kind of discussions are delicate for Showalter. Jones, the club's All-Star center fielder, wants to play every day, and usually does, ignoring the nagging bumps and bruises of a long season.

The starting lineup the Orioles fielded Friday night against the Boston Red Sox was one more likely to be seen in March than September. But with the American League East already wrapped up, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said the club will choose its spots to rest key starters. The club's batting order Friday included just two players, right fielder Steve Pearce and shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who were with the club last August. It was missing six starters from the its Opening Day lineup.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.

Derrek Lee hadn't hit a homer since May 8, but he certainly remembers what it feels like to make good contact with a pitch. So the second the ball left his bat in the 12th inning, Lee knew exactly what he had just done. He didn't need to see his teammates pouring out of the dugout while following the ball's flight. Lee ended a night in which his team blew a four-run lead and botched numerous scoring chances with a long home run to left field off Cincinnati reliever Jose Arredondo, securing the Orioles' 5-4 victory over the Reds in front of an announced 45,382, the second sellout crowd at Camden Yards this season.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

BOSTON -- One of the criticisms of the Orioles this season is that they have trouble scoring consistently when they are not hitting home runs. And that trend may catch up with them in the postseason when they'll be facing quality pitching every night. For now, though, this homer-happy bunch continues to embrace who they are: Baseball's most powerful club and, consequently, the runaway leader in the American League East. On Tuesday, the Orioles flexed their muscles again, hitting three home runs, including two by newcomer Alejandro De Aza, in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox in front of an announced 37,008 at Fenway Park.
