Twelve players made the trip, and four of them have nagging injuries.Forward Tom Hammonds and guard Darrell Walker stayed home. Hammonds has a strained tendon in his left foot and is walking in a soft cast. Walker, who did not make last weekend's trip to Newfoundland, tested his Achilles' tendons (both feet)

It was a rotten year. That 401(k) tanked quicker than the Orioles in September. The Maryland men's basketball team rallied less often than Wall Street. As for employment opportunities, at times it seemed the only jobs around Baltimore were for starting pitchers. Sports are supposed to muster the troops, push our worries aside. The Ravens are doing just that. If there's a bounce in the collective steps of Marylanders these days, credit football. Reaching the NFL playoffs - the Ravens play at Miami on Sunday - has given folks a distraction from their daily fears about stock woes, downsizing and housing ills.

Following the New York Rangers' 6-0 drubbing of the Washington Capitals Sunday night at the Capital Centre, just one question was asked in the clubhouse: "Is the series over or has it just begun?"It won't take long to find answers in tonight's fourth game of the series (7:35, HTS), which the Rangers lead 2-1.Dubbed the "discipline series" by Caps coach Terry Murray, the Caps were anything but in Sunday's Patrick Division semifinal game after nearly taking a pair from the Rangers in Manhattan late last week with a controlled style of play, emphasizing patience and more patience.

Sunday's game at Miami should tell us something about the Ravens' high-profile rookie. Not quarterback Joe Flacco. It's the other top rookie - first-year head coach John Harbaugh. Because the Ravens got trounced 31-3 by the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, this is the time to see whether Harbaugh can breathe new life into a team that just got flattened. The defense is shaken after getting ripped by Peyton Manning. The offense is searching for confidence after turning the ball over five times.

The word provincial is defined as "narrow-mindedly local." That's the way I feel right now.The United States gets eliminated from World Cup soccer -- has this thing been going on for months or does it just seem like it? -- and my interest in the tournament all but vanishes.That's strange, in a way, because eight days ago I was fascinated by the U.S. vs. Brazil game.I've grown very provincial about baseball, too.Last year, when the All-Star Game was played here, it seemed like the biggest sports event imaginable.

The final A.C. Nielsen numbers are in, and, as expected, Sunday's game finished in the bottom third of all-time Super Bowl ratings, collecting a 41.3 rating and 63 share of the audience, making it the 22nd most-watched of the 29 title games.Still, San Francisco's 49-26 spanking of San Diego almost certainly will be the most-watched program of the television season, as a shade under 40 million American households took in all or parts of the game.Locally, Saturday's Duke-Maryland game on Channel 54 was the ratings winner, copping an 8.2/16, beating the three other games that aired that day combined, but just nipping "Wide World of Sports" on Channel 2, which got a 7.1/14, according to Channel 2's Peter Leimbach, this week's official "On the Air" ratings provider.

Highlights: Franchise wide receiver Michael Westbrook not only proved he could play hurt (floating cartilage in his knee), catching four passes for 59 yards, but he also threw the key block on Terry Allen's 14-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that gave the Redskins a 23-14 lead in an eventual 27-26 loss to the Arizona Cardinals that eliminated Washington from playoff contention Sunday.Brian Mitchell, who criticized his teammates last Monday on his radio show, backed up his talk with five kickoff returns for 141 yards, two punt returns for 32 yards and two receptions for 35 yards.

In an effort to improve the team's major overall weakness, the Ravens are expected to begin working out several defensive backs today, according to Ozzie Newsome, the team's vice president of player personnel.The Ravens have been allowing 285 yards passing a game and have the 28th-ranked pass defense out of the league's 30 teams. Only the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Oilers are allowing more yards.The New York Giants entered Sunday's game with 178 passing yards a game, but Giants quarterback Dave Brown threw for 269 yards against the Ravens, who have the No. 7-ranked rushing defense in the league.

Three days after he rushed for 154 yards on 35 carries, rookie running back Jay Graham was unable to practice.Graham's sore left ankle had improved remarkably by Monday, but not enough for him to suit up yesterday. Graham, listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, could practice today on a limited basis."It's one of those deals where [Graham] had a little setback between Monday and Tuesday. The soreness actually moved down the side of the ankle, and he is having trouble pushing off," Ravens trainer Bill Tessendorf said.

The Orioles took another small step in club president Andy MacPhail's long-term rebuilding program yesterday, allowing the Tampa Bay Rays to claim right-handed reliever Chad Bradford off waivers in exchange for a player to be named. Bradford, one of the most dependable relievers in the Orioles' bullpen, goes to the first-place team in the American League East. The Orioles save $4.5 million in payroll - the remainder of the three-year, $10.5 million deal Bradford signed before the 2007 season to become part of an expensive bullpen renovation.

The Ravens' secondary has been a revolving door this season, and a lack of continuity has certainly contributed to its woes. It was never more glaring than in Sunday's 32-14 loss in San Diego when a struggling Philip Rivers looked more like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning than a quarterback who had thrown five interceptions in his previous three games. Cornerback Samari Rolle returned after missing six of the past eight games while dealing with the effects and treatment of epilepsy, but Chris McAlister sat out for the fourth time in five games with a recurring knee injury.

Kyle Boller said he is taking his new role as Ravens starting quarterback one game at a time. "I really don't try and think too much ahead," he said yesterday. Nothing wrong with that, especially in the midst of a three-game losing streak and with Steve McNair suddenly out of the picture. But he's about the only one not thinking ahead. Everybody else's view of Boller's latest chance goes way beyond Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns - it goes right through the rest of the season.

The Orioles finally are able to team up pitcher Jaret Wright with catcher Ramon Hernandez. It's just not happening in Baltimore. Wright and Hernandez will report to Single-A Frederick on an injury rehabilitation assignment and start tonight against the Wilmington Blue Rocks. Hernandez will stay with the Keys an extra day and serve as their designated hitter tomorrow, while Wright rejoins the Orioles. If everything goes according to plan, Wright will come off the disabled list in time to start Sunday's game in Cleveland.

Should the Ravens be concerned about their secondary after Sunday's game? It is not about one player or a group of players. It's about playing as a team on both sides of the ball. That will be the difference maker. Ed Bivons Cockeysville Every team's passing philosophy is that "We will attack Samari Rolle until he stops us," and that the Ravens keep sticking him on their No. 1 receiver is a bit of concern.

The mood in the visiting dressing room at halftime of Sunday's game at Giants Stadium was hopeful. The Washington Redskins trailed by only six points even though their defense hadn't forced a punt and their offense hadn't shown the same explosiveness as the previous two weeks. "I think our guys wanted to play hard," Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said yesterday, a day after his team's 19-3 loss to the New York Giants. "I just don't think we played well. To be truthful, it was kind of the way we started the game off. We just never really got in sync."

Russ Purnell is not a big believer in injury reports. That's why the Ravens' special teams coach is not placing much faith in the most recent report that lists Tennessee Titans return specialist Derrick Mason as questionable for Sunday's game at PSINet Stadium. "I expect him to play," Purnell said of Mason, who set an NFL record with 2,690 all-purpose yards last season. "What Derrick gives them is the experience. He has the pedigree. He knows what to do, and because of that experience, he's going to make fewer mistakes."

Thumbs up: Quarterback Elvis Grbac. After losing last Sunday's game with five turnovers, he stepped up to win yesterday. Not counting the two spikes to stop the clock, Grbac was 5-for-7 in the final drive for 71 yards. Thumbs down: The fourth-quarter defense. After a dominating start, the Ravens gave up 212 yards and three touchdowns in the final 20 minutes. Stat of game: 70 - Percent of passes completed by Grbac. Since returning from a rib injury two weeks ago, he hadn't completed more than 56 percent of his passes.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Everywhere Santana Moss turned, his path was blocked and he had little room to breathe. And that was just Moss' experience with the media yesterday. A day after the Washington Redskins (5-5) suffered their fifth defeat in the past seven games with a 16-13 loss to an Oakland Raiders team that had lost five of its previous eight road games, questions about the lack of offense continued to swirl at Redskins Park. Much of the scrutiny centered on the ineffectiveness of the wide receivers against a team (4-6)
