The type of campaign account that Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz is using to bolster candidates he favors is used widely in Maryland politics, but critics say it lacks transparency. Kamenetz transferred more than $100,000 of his campaign funds last year to A Better Baltimore County, a slate fund that will be able to transfer unlimited amounts of money to other slate members in this year's elections. Jennifer Bevan-Dangel, executive director of the watchdog group Common Cause Maryland, says slates in Maryland "tend to have a lot more ability to move money around" than those in other states.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.
