Although the decision may not be made for another week, Ravens appears to be the slight favorite of the people charged with naming Baltimore's new NFL team but that ranking could change quickly.The name was well-received by focus groups assembled to consider possible names, according to sources familiar with the search who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The name refers to a poem written by Edgar Allan Poe, who lived and is buried in Baltimore."There is no consensus among us," said one team official.

Hours after the Ravens terminated the contract of  Ray Rice  on Monday,  John Harbaugh  stood behind a microphone and in front of a horde of cameras and reporters and addressed one of the most difficult days in franchise history. Where was owner  Steve Bisciotti  or general manager  Ozzie Newsome ? Both were criticized by the local and national media for their failure to make themselves available to answer questions. Bisciotti, however, defended the decision in an interview with The Sun earlier today.

If the U.S. women's gymnastics team is looking for a mascot, they might consider the Six Million Dollar Man. Two key athletes were lost to injury and another was left hurting during the World Championships in Anaheim, Calif., last August. A makeshift squad won the team gold medal - a first - but the victory was shadowed by concerns that there might not be enough healing time before the Summer Games. However, it appears the athletes, doctors and trainers have borrowed the motto of the TV show from the 1970s: "We have the technology."

As the Orioles prepared for last year's annual FanFest, it didn't seem to matter that the club had made only under-the-radar alterations to its roster. The organization was coming off its first winning season and first postseason appearance since 1997. Ballyhooed signings or not, the majority of the fan base was downright giddy with the prospects of winning in 2013. The Orioles did win - enough, anyway, to secure a second consecutive above-.500 season for the first time since 1996-1997.

Ravens star running back Jamal Lewis has violated the NFL's substance and alcohol abuse policy and has been suspended four games, a league source told The Sun yesterday. Lewis, the leading rusher for last year's Super Bowl championship team, is currently on injured reserve after blowing out his left knee this summer. Despite the fact that Lewis can't play this season, the suspension went into effect yesterday because he is still technically on the roster. The Ravens are not allowed to have any contact with him or pay him until his reinstatement, which could occur on Dec. 17, the day after the Ravens' home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On the day when the Ravens officially became one of the youngest teams in NFL history, they addressed a couple of aging matters. After trimming down to the league's 53-player roster limit, team officials confirmed that fullback Sam Gash will re-sign with the Ravens today, and a league source indicated there is a possibility that linebacker Peter Boulware's contract extension could be completed by next week. Gash will be brought in as a backup/tutor to Alan Ricard, and Boulware is expected to be locked up long term before finishing the final year of his current contract.

Within the next two months, the 12-foot-high neon-purple letters that spell PSINet Stadium will be removed as the Baltimore Ravens begin their search for a company to buy the high-profile naming rights to the 69,000-seat stadium, team officials said yesterday. The Ravens regained the naming and marketing rights from bankrupt PSINet Inc. in an agreement filed last week in federal court in New York. The agreement still must be approved by the court. Team President David Modell will begin discussions with companies that have contacted the team, and also seek out other companies, said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' vice president of public relations.

Frank Pulli did not arrive at Turner Field until the seventh because of a "complication" with his flight, team officials said.Pub Date: 4/15/98

The World Baseball Classic has been the talk of the early days of spring training, partly because it's the reason for the elongated training schedule this year and partly because of the mixed feelings that a lot of teams have about it. It's supposed to be the World Cup of baseball - the answer to the decision by the IOC to remove baseball from the Olympics because Major League Baseball refused to interrupt its regular season once every four years...

A day after spending time meeting with team officials at the Ravens' headquarters in Owings Mills, free agent defensive end Mark Anderson has agreed to a four-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. That the two sides were nearing a deal was first reported by www.foxsports.com , while the Boston Herald first reported the agreement. Anderson arrived in Buffalo last night after being in Baltimore earlier in the day. Looking to bolster their pass rush, the Ravens had interest in Anderson, who had 10 sacks for the New England Patriots in the regular season and added 2 1/2 more in three playoff games.

Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie flew to Baltimore yesterday to meet with team officials and apparently got the answers that he was seeking. "Raven Fans, I was n Baltimore 2day, 2 confirm that ill be there next season," McKinnie said last night on his Twitter account. Was it even a question whether he was coming back? It may not have been much of one a couple of weeks ago as the Ravens don't have another experienced left tackle on their roster unless you count Michael Oher.

From the early stages of Wednesday's hostage standoff in Silver Spring, tactical officers had positioned themselves to shoot James J. Lee. The big fear: Doing so would set off explosives attached to his body and kill his three hostages. "It looks like he's got a dead-man's switch," a bomb-squad member said into his radio, part of the stream of information being sent into a command bus 800 feet away. "Frazier, he's got a dead-man's switch," Assistant Montgomery Police Chief Drew Tracy said inside the bus. "What do you think about this pin?"

With three of their biggest offseason needs seemingly filled a week before Christmas, the suddenly aggressive Orioles are now expected to adopt a wait-and-see approach before putting the final touches on their 2010 roster. After adding veteran starter Kevin Millwood in a trade with the Texas Rangers last week and agreeing to terms with left-handed closer Mike Gonzalez and former Colorado Rockies third baseman Garrett Atkins on Wednesday, team officials acknowledged that their next move probably won't come until 2010.

Deserved punishment Cowboys CB Adam Jones deserved the indefinite suspension (minimum four games) he got for his latest off-field altercation. What doesn't he understand about zero tolerance? The Cowboys still might take him back. Sitting one out Chiefs RB Larry Johnson has another he-said, she-said assault charge pending. He has also violated team rules, which will keep him on the sideline today when QB Brodie Croyle returns and the Chiefs need him the most. Too much conversation Rams G Richie Incognito likely would have been cut if Josh Brown missed a game-winning field goal in Washington.

BOSTON - Four years and about four months after Daniel Cabrera made his major league debut, the Orioles say publicly that they still don't know what they have in the 27-year-old pitcher. "To this point, he's performed well by and large in the first half, and not well in the second half," Orioles president Andy MacPhail said. "The first 10 starts, he had eight quality starts. Since that time, he has five quality starts in 18 outings. We're trying to figure out which is the real Daniel Cabrera."

Three Ravens officials - director of college scouting Eric DeCosta, director of pro personnel George Kokinis and assistant offensive line coach Andy Moeller - attended Boston College's pro day yesterday, which showcased quarterback Matt Ryan. Dressed in shorts and not facing a defense, Ryan completed 48 of 52 passes. Three of his passes were dropped, and one was overthrown. Ryan is expected to be the first quarterback taken in next month's NFL draft. Kansas City coach Herm Edwards, whose Chiefs select fifth in the draft, was among those who watched Ryan work out. The Ravens pick eighth.
