News item: The Ravens might make an offer to the Arizona Cardinals for disgruntled wide receiver Anquan Boldin, though it would probably cost them a first- and third-round draft choice. My take: That's a steep price, but I think general manager Ozzie Newsome should seriously consider it. That late first-round pick isn't likely to add a new dimension to the Ravens' offense. Boldin would. News item: Through the first 10 games of the season, the Orioles' offense averaged 6.4 runs and 10 hits.

MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins are so close to acquiring All-Star third baseman Gary Sheffield from the San Diego Padres that they have expanded their payroll to accommodate his salary and told starting third baseman Dave Magadan that he should prepare to become a reserve.The deal could be done as soon as today. The Marlins, according to club sources, are ready to give up Triple-A pitcher Jose Martinez, the organization's best pitching prospect, and another minor-league pitcher.Sheffield, 24, can be both splendid and sour.

Gary Sheffield plans to go for No. 500 with the New York Mets. One home run shy of the milestone, Sheffield reached a contract agreement with New York on Friday, three days after he was released by the Detroit Tigers. Just hours before opening their beaming new ballpark Friday night with an exhibition game against the Boston Red Sox, the Mets made another splash by acquiring the outspoken Sheffield. He is expected to be in New York on Saturday, and the deal is contingent on him passing a physical, general manager Omar Minaya said.

MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins could still trade Gary Sheffield to the New York Mets, but it's going to take awhile, and a new formula to get a deal done.A proposed trade Tuesday fell through when the Mets asked Florida to pick up a chunk of Sheffield's six-year, $61 million contract. The Mets were offering outfielder Bernard Gilkey, who is in the second year of a three-year, $15.8 million contract. The Mets wanted the Marlins to pick up as much as $4 million of Sheffield's paycheck ($24 million, six years)

A lot of people who read or heard about Gary Sheffield's comments regarding Latino players in this month's GQ magazine say Sheffield is wrong. He is wrong, they say, on the idea that the increase in Latino baseball players and the decrease in African-Americans is about "being able to tell [Latinos] what to do. ... Being able to control them." Marcos Breton, who literally wrote the book on the rise of Latinos in today's game, doesn't necessarily think Sheffield is wrong. His reasoning? "Two thousand dollars," he said.

Judging from the smiles and opening goodwill handshake there was no denying what took place last night at Cedar Lane Park was exhibition soccer, but that didn't erase the sting of the 2-0 loss for the Maryland Bays, or the thoughts of what could have been.On paper, it was easy for skeptics to say that the Bays were overmatched by the Sheffield Wednesday club team from the British First Division.However, when it came time to play the game, the Bays "gave them a go," as several of the British players would admit after their victory.

DETROIT -- When the benches cleared in the top of the fifth inning, a mass of players darting in from different directions and converging at home plate, several players and umpires got between Orioles pitcher Daniel Cabrera and Detroit Tigers slugger Gary Sheffield. That perhaps was the only thing that prevented a mouthy and at times cantankerous standoff from becoming a full-fledged melee. But this time, there was nobody in between the two. It was just the 6-foot-9, 269-pound pitcher staring down from the mound at one of the game's most feared hitters, who dug in 60 feet, 6 inches away and returned a menacing glare.

The tapes saved him. When his wife died, Rob Sheffield found comfort in the drawers filled with clothes that carried her scent, in the beagle they had adopted together, and in the trails they had walked for miles. But it was the tapes -- hundreds of mix tapes they had made each other through five years of marriage -- that meant the most. "My mix tapes were the life rafts that I held on to," Sheffield writes in his new book, Love Is a Mix Tape. "Sometimes I would sing to Renee; sometimes I would let her sing to me."

An American League general manager has a theory. If the Minnesota Twins had been the American League wild-card representative, they'd be World Series favorites. Instead, the Twins captured the American League Central Division on the final day of the season and secured home-field advantage in the first round. And now the same GM predicts the Twins won't make it to the World Series. Confused? Here's the reasoning: As the wild card, the Twins would have had to play the New York Yankees in the first round.

NEW YORK -- The remaining two weeks of the season couldn't pass without the Orioles experiencing another crisis, without them being reminded again how they won't rack up any mileage going from bad to worse. The trip usually is a short one. It didn't matter that rookie pitcher John Maine appeared to unravel in front of 46,982 fans at Yankee Stadium last night, or that interim manager Sam Perlozzo was ejected for the second time. It didn't seem so important that the Orioles were battered as a team.

THE GARY SHEFFIELD incident took me back in time again, which seems to happen more and more as I near the big half-century mark in September. I've witnessed dozens of players confront dozens of obnoxious fans over the 26 years I've covered baseball, and each of those incidents had one thing in common. The fan needed a butt-whipping. I know, I know, you can't go there. The infamous Detroit basketbrawl last fall gave us the archetypal example of why every athlete who leaves the playing surface to attack the paying customers needs to face severe discipline.
