I was doing a radio segment on 105.7 The Fan on Thursday night when host Terry Ford asked me an interesting question. And since we encourage recycling here at Connolly's, I thought I'd drop it on you. I was asked which Oriole did I think would improve in the second half. I was allowed only one answer. And there are several candidates. Chris Davis is an obvious one. It'd be really surprising if he hit under .200 all season. But he also has 15 homers and 48 RBIs. So I'm not picking him. You'd have to think Ubaldo Jimenez should be better than the 3-8 record, 4.52 ERA and league-leading 60 walks issued in 99 2/3 innings pitched in the first half.

Maryland's football coaches convened inside Gossett Team House during the Terps ' bye last week. They assessed how players fared during the first half of the season, analyzed what worked and what didn't from a game plan standpoint and also discussed what needs to change heading into the second half of the year. The reality? The Terps (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) have some issues that need to be addressed for Maryland to make a run during the second half of the season, which begins with a home game against Iowa on Saturday.

OAKLAND, CALIF. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter doesn't like to imply that one game is more important than another in a 162-game season, but he knows his team is facing a critical stretch coming out of the All-Star break. After winning 10 of 13, the Orioles began the second half of the season leading the American League East at the break for the first time since 1997, the last time the club won a division title. But the Orioles - currently four games up on the second-place Toronto Blue Jays - will lead off the second half by playing 29 consecutive games against teams with a record of .500 or better.

River Hill All-Metro forward Alex Hamer did her part, winning the right side before sending a perfect cross to the middle with less than three minutes left at Centennial. She knew exactly who would be there to handle the rest. It was junior midfielder Jessica Hopkins who made the perfect run before emphatically heading home the difference as the No. 2 Hawks were able to withstand a considerable challenge to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind win over the Eagles in Howard County. River Hill improved to 8-2 and 7-0 in league play, while the Eagles fell to 5-4-1 and 4-3. The game was played on even terms most of the way with the Eagles taking a 1-0 lead early in the second half before Hamer and Hopkins dominated the final minutes to rally the Hawks.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel is hoping for a fresh start when he makes his first start after the All-Star break Tuesday night against the Kansas City Royals. Plagued by inconsistency, Hammel is 0-4 in his past eight starts. He's allowed four or more runs in five of his past eight outings and has allowed 11 homers in that span. "It's the second half," said Hammel, the Orioles' Opening Day starter after a breakout 2012 season. "This is when it gets fun. I basically didn't have fun much in the first half.

COLLEGE PARK -- Nick Faust's progression from an inconsistent starter to a contributor off the Maryland bench in nearly every game played out during the second half of his team's 74-66 victory over Notre Dame on Wednesday night at Comcast Center. Faust played more of a supporting role offensively to junior guard Dez Wells, who led Maryland's comeback from a nine-point halftime deficit by scoring all 17 of his points in the second half, as well as sophomore guard Seth Allen, who added 14 in his first start since coming back from a broken foot.

But in second half, Broadneck (5-4) starting hitting from outside and Barr went to work inside, scoring 15 points and leading the Bruins to a 47-40 victory."She struggled early in the season because she was not shooting well," Broadneck coach Bruce Springer said of Barr, who had a season-high 17 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, including 11 in the first half.

ANNAPOLIS -- It wasn't this way at Marshall University or any of George Chaump's other coaching stops. Chaump teams made a practice of storming from behind, not dissipating leads in the second half.That's what Navy is doing this season. The Middies bolt from the gate, always score first, then find a way to lose. Going into Saturday's game at Notre Dame, they are 0-7."I've stayed up until 2 a.m. and searched my soul," Chaump said. "I've never had a team that did this in my life. I can't put my finger on it."

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Severn sophomore forward Eddy Shoop was fairly certain she scored two goals in her freshman soccer season last year, but she thought one of them might have come in a scrimmage. So after she was reminded that she already has five goals in the No. 4 Admirals' 3-0 start - including the game-winner in the final minute of a 1-0 win over No. 12 Severna Park (0-2) on Monday - she couldn't help but giggle. "Oh, my gosh. It's so cool," she said.  Severn goalie Alayah Hightower (eight saves)

Broadneck senior forward Nate Watkins made quite the impression with his new team in the No. 12 Bruins' season opener against Meade on Tuesday, throwing in some last-minute heroics for good measure. A transfer from Wisconsin, he put away a centering pass from fellow senior Jeff Horst with 2:24 to play - his third goal of the game - to lift Broadneck to a 3-2 win over the visiting Mustangs. Watkins scored his first two goals late in the first half to give the Bruins (1-0) a 2-1 halftime lead, but the Mustangs tied the game early in the second half and had more chances to grab control before Watkins' final tally.

The Ravens will maintain their tradition of having starters playing into the third quarter during their third preseason game Saturday night. Some starters might just play until halftime against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium. This will be the last preseason game for the starters, who will be rested during the fourth and final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints next week. “We're there stamina-wise, there's no question about that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

OAKLAND - A few days before the All-Star break, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that there will be several starting pitchers available before the trade deadline who won't be as good at the team's existing six starting pitchers. As the Orioles come out of the break in first place in the AL East, one of Showalter's biggest challenges might be how he manages his six starting pitchers. It won't be as simple as keeping every pitcher in line. He's already started to utilize matchups, slotting right-hander Bud Norris to make his first second-half start in Anaheim (3-0, 0.32 ERA in four career starts against the Angels)

The Orioles' plan all along was to let Kevin Gausman loose in the second half of this season. It took some rigid discipline - limiting his innings and pitch counts earlier this year - in order to preserve him for the stretch run. It also included some unpopular roster moves as the right-hander shuttled back and forth to the minor leagues. When the Orioles needed an extra relief pitcher, Gausman usually was the player sent to manager Buck Showalter's office to be told he was being optioned.
