Addressing a longtime need in the organization, the Orioles selected Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado with the third overall pick in Monday night's first round of the 2010 amateur draft. Machado, who hit .639 with 12 homers and 68 RBIs in 29 games for Brito Miami Private, was considered the top prep position player in the draft. "If Machado stays at shortstop, you have a potential All-Star offensively who is no worse than average with the glove," said Keith Law, a writer for ESPN.

Two of Baltimore's top elected officials objected Wednesday to the administration's plan for choosing outside auditors to monitor large agencies, such as police and public works. Officials with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration told the city's spending board that they are taking steps to ensure the performance and finances of 13 major agencies are audited once very four years, as required by a recent city charter amendment. But Comptroller Joan M. Pratt and City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young said the independence of the reviews are in question under the administration's plan.

As millions of Americans prepare to feast on football and fowl, Legg Mason Inc. yesterday served up its 15th annual Thanksgiving List, a selection of a dozen stocks that historically has left investors' portfolios fatter than Legg's mutual funds.Many investment firms offer selected stock portfolios for their clients at various times of the year. Legg Mason's has attracted a following beyond the company's regional base, probably because of its consistent performance: The list has bettered the Standard & Poor's 500 index 12 out of the 15 years since its introduction, with a 28.7 percent average annual return, compared with the S&P's average 16.9 percent annual return, assuming reinvestment of dividends in both cases.

In three consecutive days, Matt Hobgood won a national baseball award, attended his high school's spring sports banquet and was selected fifth overall by the Orioles in Tuesday's amateur draft. "If you'd sit me down and asked how to plan out the week, I don't think you could plan it out any better than that," said Hobgood, a hard-throwing right-hander from Southern California who became just the second high school pitcher in two decades to be selected by the Orioles with their first pick.

Darra and David Williams were running out of hope for having a baby without cystic fibrosis when they heard about technology capable of helping them select healthy embryos - as well as their child's gender. At an Irvine, Calif., clinic, now-familiar technology was used to fertilize her eggs with his sperm. But in a Brave New World twist, doctors at Coastal Fertility Medical Center then pulled a cell from each resulting embryo to test it for defects such as the cystic fibrosis that runs in David's family, as well as for its sex. Four were healthy - three boys and a girl.

The players, managers and coaches should select the starters for baseball's All-Star Game, respondents to "It's Your Call" said this weekend.The 373 callers opposed selection of the starters by fans (57 to 43 percent) and felt even more strongly that the media should not select the team (76 to 24 percent). But they approved of the players, managers and coaches (56 to 44 percent) making the choices, which currently are made by fans."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Maryland's disappointing 17-15 season hit a new low Sunday night, when the Terps were excluded from the 32-team field for the National Invitation Tournament. Despite finishing with a .500 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season (9-9) for the first time in Mark Turgeon's three years - and ending the regular season with an upset of then-No. 5 Virginia at Comcast Center - Maryland's early season struggles likely cost the Terps a bid in the postseason tournament. Losses at home to Boston University, which was given a spot in the field as the Patriot League regular-season champion, and Oregon State were blemishes on a record that saw the Terps beat only one team - the Cavaliers - ranked in the top 50. It marks the second time in Turgeon's three years - and the third time in the past four - that the Terps were excluded from playing in either the NCAA tournament or the NIT. That hadn't happened since Gary Wiliams inherited a program from Bob Wade that was about to go on NCAA probation and was banned from playing in the postseason for two years after Williams led the Terps to the NIT in his first year in the 1989-90 season.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Friday in a court-martial for a Naval Academy midshipman charged with sexually assaulting a classmate. Midshipman Joshua Tate is charged with aggravated sexual assault and making false official statements. The jury - called a "panel" in the military justice system - will be comprised of Navy and Marine Corps officers who are stationed in the Washington, D.C. region. The judge in the case, Marine Col. Daniel Daugherty, ordered that the pool of potential panel members be drawn from outside of the academy, as would normally be the case, because of the intense focus on the case and the issue of sexual assault in the military.

Of all the traits Mount St. Joseph senior guard Phil Booth has brought to the basketball court in his fourth varsity season, his consistency on offense and defense may stand out the most. He scores from everywhere, is a gifted passer and grabs big rebounds. He plays defense with the same skills, smarts and determination. Averaging 18 points, six rebounds and three assists a game, the Villanova-bound Booth was named the Baltimore Catholic League's Jerry Savage Player of the Year Monday night at Snyder's Willow Grove Restaurant in Linthicum.

Select fresh apricots based first on aroma and then color. A whiff of apricot fragrance is more important than smooth, blushing skin. Choose fruit with a good, even color that is free of bruises or nicks. Never select fruit tinged with green. These might rot before they ripen.Store apricots in an airtight bag or container because they readily pick up flavors from other fruits.For the best flavor and nutrient content, eat apricots while they're still slightly firm.Pub Date: 8/09/98

The NFL scouting combine is in a couple of weeks, unofficially starting the league's silly season. But even though the NFL draft is still three long months away, draft analysts continue to update their mock drafts.   The last time I rounded up a few notable mock drafts, back in early January , many draft analysts linked the Ravens to Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, whose size and strong hands could make him a fit. This time around, I read several mock drafts that had the Ravens taking Evans with their first-round pick.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
