When Caleb Joseph received a throw as Chicago White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez headed toward him in the top of the eighth, the Orioles catcher said he had two things on his mind: tag Ramirez out, and don't break baseball's new home-plate collision rules. Instead, Ramirez dodged Joseph's tentative effort at a tag, scoring safely as the White Sox took a three-run lead and held on to win, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Camden Yards . Rule 7.13, implemented by Major League Baseball before the season, forbids catchers from blocking the path of the runner until he has possession of the ball.

The Ravens are not expected to use the franchise tag on All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas, although the team will wait until today before making a final decision. The sides are talking about a long-term contract for Thomas, and the Ravens could be using the threat of the tag to get a deal done. The deadline to use the tag is today. By using the tag for 2007, the Ravens can keep Thomas from becoming a free agent by paying him $7.2 million, which is the average of the five highest-paid linebackers in the league.

DETROIT -- It ended up not costing the Orioles in their 5-2 win over the Tigers on Tuesday night , but a controversial play in the seventh inning definitely could have turned the momentum of the game. With the Orioles leading by three with two on and no outs, Torii Hunter hit a grounder to third that Manny Machado scooped and reached out to tag Tigers baserunner Brayan Pena going from second to third. Machado then threw to second base to get the force out there. Had the ball been ruled a double play, the Orioles would have had taken two runners out of scoring position and had two outs.

Manny Machado wasn't happy with the way Oakland Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson tagged him to end the third inning in the Orioles' 4-3 loss Friday night. Why, exactly? He wouldn't specify. “He made the right play, but [I] just didn't agree on the tag that he made on me, and I just had to get up and confront him,” Machado said after the game. “You get in the heat of the moment and things start flying. It's part of the game, and you're going to have to continue.” With two outs and Machado running on contact from second base, Donaldson fielded a soft ground ball near third and waited in his base path.

Inside linebacker Ray Lewis has always been the face of this franchise, so the Ravens might as well make it official and designate him the franchise player. There might not be another way of keeping Lewis after the season except to put that designation on him. If not, then Baltimore fans might have seen Lewis do his last pre-game dance Sunday when the Ravens clinched a playoff spot with a 27-7 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lewis, 33, is close to the end of a seven-year contract that paid him $6.5 million this season.

I see where yet another elementary school in this great country has banned tag on the playground, this time on the theory it causes "conflict" among the kids. Too many of the little monsters complained about being chased when they didn't want to be chased, said an official at a Colorado Springs, Colo., school. And this apparently constituted a form of kiddie harassment, which should surprise no one in this day and age. In fact, I'm surprised there weren't lawyers handing out business cards on the playground the next day. Anyway, the end result was: goodbye tag at recess, although the school official said other running games would be allowed.

Even to the most die-hard Orioles fan -- even the ones most blinded by the darkest orange-and-black colored shades -- Manny Machado's bat fling on Sunday afternoon had to seem a little weird. Machado said after the Orioles' 11-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics that his bat left his grasp and twirled down the third-base line in play unintentionally . But when you look at the play, Machado swung the bat nowhere close to the pitch low and inside. His swing also was extremely late.

When a shark tagged off the Eastern Shore as part of a marine-life tracking project took off on an unprecedented monthlong journey, researchers quite literally watched its every move. Thanks to cutting-edge satellite tags, scientists at the Guy Harvey Research Institute plotted and analyzed the Mid-Atlantic odyssey of I-NSU, a juvenile shortfin mako shark that a GHRI team caught in May off the coast of Ocean City . Since being tagged, I-NSU has traveled at least 8,000 miles, more than 1,000 of them in a shockingly straight path over the course of about 30 days, researchers said.

The Ravens made a smart move by not putting the franchise tag on left offensive tackle Eugene Monroe on Monday. That's a designation used on a player who is one of the best at his position. Monroe isn't in that class. Oh, he's good. And in the prime of his career, he deserves a hefty, long-term contract. But if the Ravens had tagged him the franchise player and hadn't gotten a long-term deal by July 15, they would have had to pay him $11.654 million for the coming season. If the Ravens don't reach a deal with Monroe before the new league year begins March 11, he will become an unrestricted free agent.

When I first moved to Maryland seven years ago, I was excited to leave Pennsylvania and become a permanent resident of this beautiful state, especially moving to the top of the Chesapeake Bay and residing on the water in Havre de Grace. Shortly after that our youngest daughter transferred during her freshman year from West Chester University, in Pennsylvania, to Towson University. We did everything by the book, registered our cars, filed our taxes, surrendered our Pennsylvania licenses and received Maryland licenses.

I found out about laser tag from a guy I know named Woody. Woody is in public relations, despite the fact that he looks like -- and I say this as a friend -- a street person who has failed to take his medication since 1972. I believe this is the secret of his success: When Woody approaches business people, they expect him to ask them for spare change, and possibly throw up on their shoes, and when he doesn't, they're so relieved that they agree to let him handle their public relations.Anyway, Woody represents this outfit that operates a laser-tag game, and he'd been bugging me to try it."

The NFL's annual offseason free agent spending spree won't officially get underway until March 11, but the Ravens will have a $6.7 million decision to make within the next couple of weeks. Or is it an $11.5 million decision? The Ravens' evaluation of whether to use the franchise tag on tight end Dennis Pitta is complicated by the uncertainty of exactly how much it would cost. Would Pitta fall under the franchise tag number for a tight end or a wide receiver, a difference of nearly $5 million?

When the bill arrived from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, I expected to open it and see that I owed $250 by March 15. Instead it was for $286. That's $36 more than Maryland health exchange website showed my insurance plan would cost. This was the latest snafu in my quest to buy health insurance through the state's troubled online exchange, which has been beset for months by technical problems. The enrollment process took me five hours and 22 minutes and included two calls to the exchange's call center, seven attempts to enter my personal information, two computers and two web browsers.
