Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, with his hand iced and bandaged, said after Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox that he'd probably be out for a few days if the regular season was ongoing. Instead, his tremendous 2013 season ended in the fourth inning of Sunday's finale when he sprained his left wrist attempting to make a catch at first base. β€œIt'd be a couple days. I think it is one of those things where it is so sore right now that it is hard to tell,” Davis said.

Sammy Sosa went out of his way to win over the Orioles' crowd yesterday. It wasn't just his two singles or his nifty catch in right-center, either. You could tell the Orioles' newest slugger was eager to ignite a new love affair right from the start. In the top of the first inning, he bolted from the dugout and sprinted hard - head down - toward his position in right field. Twice en route he reacted to fans by pointing toward the seats in foul territory. When he got to right field, he made a hard left and kept sprinting to the bleacher seats in center.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris was sworn into office Wednesday evening at a public ceremony in which he reiterated his promise to make the city one of the nation's safest. Norris, with his wife, Katheryn, and 10-month-old son, John, by his side, signed the city register as a crowd at the War Memorial Building gave him a standing ovation. The public display was largely ceremonial; Norris was sworn in at a private function a day after he was unanimously confirmed by the City Council on May 8. Though the former New York Police Department chief deputy had no dissenting votes, he faced weeks of criticism from residents, politicians and clergy worried that he will copy aggressive policing strategies blamed for abuse in New York.

WASHINGTON - Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is a little late when he walks into a House Republican conference on Capitol Hill about 10 yesterday morning. Nearly all his colleagues are already there, and when they see him walk though the doors, it's as if the patron saint of Democrat crushers has just walked in. The standing ovation is punctuated by shouts and high-fives. He gets a bear hug from House Speaker Dennis Hastert. The room is awash in cat-ate-the-cream smiles. "They just went nuts," Ehrlich said when he emerged from the closed-door meeting, looking a bit dreamy.

The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, pastor of a Baltimore mega-church, stood on stage with Trayvon Martin's family, attorneys and Al Sharpton on Tuesday evening in a nationally televised news conference after a Florida special prosecutor announced that George Zimmerman would be charged with second-degree murder in the teen's death. "This is not a night of victory β€” this is a night of transition," he said. "Years from this moment, historians will have to write a new chapter. This is not a moment, but the beginning of a movement.

On Capitol Hill, some lawmakers treat Elizabeth Warren as if she were Public Enemy No. 1. That's what happens when you're charged with setting up an agency whose purpose is to protect consumers on financial matters β€” a job that brings you up against supporters of banking interests. But in Baltimore, where the Harvard law professor spoke at a town hall meeting held by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings last week, she received rock-star treatment. In fact, she was called a "rock star" a few times and received two standing ovations from the overflowing crowd at the Enoch Pratt Free Library auditorium.

In their most important game of the season, the Eagles lost by five. And by 5. That's the jersey number of Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, who wore that same number for 11 years in Philadelphia before the Eagles traded him in April. Along the way in their 17-12 loss to the Redskins, the Eagles lost quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered an undisclosed rib injury on a dazzling run up the middle at the end of the first quarter when he was sandwiched just shy of the goal line.

Stars breaking up with embattled Avery nhl Whenever Sean Avery is ready to return to the NHL, it won't be with the Dallas Stars. The combative forward was eligible to return from a six-game suspension yesterday, but the Stars instead announced that Avery will not rejoin the team - ever. "You have to do what's right for both parties, and that's what we're really trying to do," co-general manager Brett Hull said. Avery was only 23 games into a four-year, $15.5 million deal when NHL commissioner Gary Bettman suspended him for a crude remark about ex-girlfriends dating other hockey players.

Dave Trembley is the right manager at the right time and, as Andy MacPhail said yesterday afternoon, the right fit for the Orioles. But as a defensive coordinator, he doesn't impress anybody. Maybe the cynics were right - they should have waited until the offseason and tried to hire Rex Ryan. As they got roasted for the most runs in one game since the turn of the last century, the Orioles players last night didn't exactly back up Trembley's and MacPhail's claims of how the clubhouse's attitude and chemistry were back.
