The Orioles weren't close to acquiring Boston Red Sox right-hander Jon Lester on Wednesday - one club source said bluntly, “it's not going to happen” - but executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to work the phones as the nonwaiver trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. today. The club continues to actively search for pitching - with a left-handed reliever that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate as one of the top priorities, according to several sources. “We have a couple of active discussions,” Duquette said before Wednesday's game.

" "George and Stacy are still very much together," said Radar, quoting, "a source close to the couple.

Absenteeism soared in Anne Arundel County schools Friday after a week of rampant shooting rumors apparently spooked parents. More than half of the students at two high schools stayed home. Across the system, absences quadrupled at Arundel high schools and increased more than fourfold at middle schools compared to the final day before the holiday break last year, schools spokesman Bob Mosier said, attributing the spike to the rumors. By Tuesday, principals at five high schools and one middle school sent home letters to parents dispelling false reports that a shooting was planned for Friday, one week after a mass shooting in Connecticut that left 20 elementary students and six school employees dead.

Proof this is a slow news day: This is what everyone is talking about online. People love them some Clooney. I get it. People, for some reason, care more about his love life than how he's capable of making such great films as "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "Michael Clayton. " Now that he's single again, there's already fresh rumors of his new lady love. And it just happens to be ex-wrestler, ex-Ravens cheerleader Stacy Keibler, who hails from Rosedale (b's Wesley Case said she's from "Long Legs, USA. " Yes, he actually said that)

An Orioles official said today there is “absolutely no truth” to fresh rumors that owner Peter Angelos is shopping the club. Eric Bickel, a radio host on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, said Tuesday that he had heard Angelos was quietly discussing a sale of the Orioles. Bickel said Angelos was looking to sell the team but not his majority share in the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, which broadcasts Orioles and Washington Nationals games. MASN is probably worth more than the team, and the Orioles would be a significantly less appealing purchase if the network was not included, according to investment bankers familiar with the baseball industry.

Earlier this week during an interview with a TV station in Maine, Michael Phelps said “I'm retired. I love it. It's fun.” But the winner of the most medals in Olympic history is also busier than ever, saying “I'm on the road constantly. I'm always traveling.” The swimmer's latest adventure took him to Shanghai, China, this morning, where he and Under Armour founder and owner Kevin Plank opened the newest “Under Armour Experience” at the Jing An Kerry Centre. Phelps wasn't kidding about his travel schedule.

Recently, I helped found Millennial Maryland, a group that advocates a different vision for both Maryland and the Republican Party. That vision includes an understanding of the wider world, the embrace of civility and the constant pursuit of intellectual knowledge. Allow me to take this moment to underscore why these things matter. On his blog Monday, Allen West, retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and former Florida GOP congressman, posted a video of Bob Bergdahl, the father of recovered POW and potential deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette supressed speculation that the club was nearing a deal with a free-agent closer on Tuesday here at baseball's winter meetings. The day began with rumors that the Orioles were close to signing free-agent closer Grant Balfour, but Duquette told local media late Tuesday afternoon that those reports were way ahead of reality. “There's a lot of speculation out there with the closer thing and I think the speculation is pretty far ahead of the market and our involvement in the market,” Duquette said.

As often is the case, this offseason has been about the rumor mill and the Orioles, with nearly every free agent attached to the club. That's kind of the drill this time of year - especially for the Orioles, who always have holes that need to be filled and, at the least, are perceived as having money to spend. That perception ratcheted upward after Monday's deal of closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland A's that put roughly $10 million back into the Orioles' 2014 budget. With the news came more reports of players the Orioles may be targeting.

With rumors circulating that legendary quarterback Brett Favre is joining "Dancing with the Stars," the sports blogosphere is close to imploding on itself (and I know, I'm now contributing to it). If the rumors are true, Favre will follow in the dance steps of retired greats such as Emmitt Smith, Kurt Warner and Jerry Rice when the 12th season of the ABC dance-off debuts March 21. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought we got rid of this guy. I used to be a Favre fan back when being anti-Favre was considered to be borderline unpatriotic.

In what has become somewhat of a tradition in the first full day of baseball's winter meetings - both for the Orioles and the league as a whole - plenty of rumors swirled around the massive hallways and lobbies of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel on Monday but little news surfaced. The first, and perhaps most interesting news conference Monday, was held by New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who announced that lightning rod third baseman Alex Rodriguez will undergo hip surgery and will miss a chunk of the 2013 season.
