For the fourth time in three seasons, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Tucker converted all three of his field-goal attempts in the Ravens' 23-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, and his 32-yarder as time expired provided the decisive points in the road win. The kick was Tucker's seventh career game-winner. He also made field goals from 38 yards and 21 yards in the game. For the season, Tucker is 8-for-9 with his only miss coming from 55 yards in the Ravens' season-opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

It should be no big deal, Davey Johnson's asking Cal Ripken to make a temporary move to third base. But it is a big deal, a very big deal. Ripken vs. Johnson is rapidly developing into a battle for the heart and soul of this franchise.First, Johnson lifted Ripken for a pinch runner in a game the Orioles trailed by one run. Then, he batted him seventh for the first time since 1982. And now, he is putting his future Hall of Fame shortstop in a box from which there is only one graceful escape.

At a little past five o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, darkness began to interrupt practice when Loyola men's soccer coach Mark Mettrick announced the next goal would be the winner. A couple of shots were sprayed wide and another was stopped when it was halfway across the goal line. Sometime later, when it was much darker, Niall Lepper cleanly struck a half volley to finally end the session. It was obvious just how much the Greyhounds were treasuring the fact that, here it is after Thanksgiving, and they're still playing ball.

One of the big discussions in the press box before Friday's game was whether Jason Hammel will be an All-Star. Not whether he is worthy - he has been the Orioles' best starter this season - but whether he'll be named to the team. Because the biggest thing holding Jason Hammel back at a chance for the American League All-Star squad is his name. He is Jason Hammel. And his chief competition to make the All-Star team includes guys who have been in the top tier for a while: Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Justin Verlander, Jake Peavy, CC Sabathia and David Price to name a few. Even the upstarts have a higher profile: Chris Sale, Yu Darvish and Brandon McCarthy, who could be the Oakland A's only representative.

Instead, every team says it had a productive draft. And got exactly the players it wanted. And is (pick one) thrilled, ecstatic, euphoric to have them. So what are we to make of the Ravens' 2012 draft, now that the whole thing is finally over? (Tell me, can the league and the TV networks drag the draft out any further?

Leon Gaters was among a handful of students at Colgate Elementary who knew the school's PTA had paid for a Ravens player to speak as a surprise guest at an October assembly. When he discovered days before the assembly that no player would show up, the fifth-grader said he was "bummed out. " The Baltimore County school is among dozens in the region that expected to host Ravens players this month. But school systems say that even though they paid an Annapolis company thousands of dollars, it did not provide the players as promised and hasn't refunded the money.
