Nothing like piling on when a team's down. Now even The Onion, the satirical publication and website that bills itself as “America's Finest News Source,”  is taking shots at the Orioles. The latest edition skewers the team with a “news brief” and the headline: “ Orioles: We Have Enough Talent To Win 5 More Games This Season .” Despite well over a decade of futility before their hot start this season, the Baltimore Orioles . . . told reporters . . . they trust in one another and believe they have enough talent this year to win five more games.

Some four hours before Wednesday's game against the Texas Rangers at Camden Yards, slumping Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was on the field doing early hitting work. Davis, who was hitless in his previous 19 at-bats heading into Wednesday, took swings off a batting tee under the supervision of manager Buck Showalter and hitting coach Jim Presley. Heading into Wednesday's game, Davis' average had dropped 62 points since May 23 to .205. From May 24 through Tuesday, he batted .145 with 50 strikeouts in 124 at-bats.

It was only three weeks ago that we last saw Steve Stricker, as a bout with laryngitis left him trying to speak as little as possible at the Shark Shootout in Naples, Fla. Stricker has his voice back, thankfully. And his swing sure didn't seem under the weather as he and teammate Jerry Kelly finished two strokes shy of a back-to-back triumph in the partnership event. Even so, the winner of nine PGA Tour trophies admits a certain apprehension every January. "You're not sure what this new year is going to bring," Stricker told reporters at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Joe Eades' mornings always begin in total darkness. The sunrise is still hours away when he arrives at Forest Park Golf Course, the city still fast asleep. It's his favorite time of day, when the grass is still dripping with dew and there is a serenity to all the silence. Out of bed no later than 3:30 a.m., he is wide awake when he pulls into the course parking lot, ready to get to work. The course, which has been around since 1934, is already talking to him in a language that takes years to learn.

BETHESDA -- Officials of the Mazda LPGA Championship wanted to put their best faces before the national television audience. So, when NBC-TV said it would move its telecast back an hour to noon, officials had the top players tee off in the first several groups.Betsy King, JoAnne Carner and Amy Alcott were the first group to tee off in the third round -- coming after the completion of the second round, which was suspended Friday because of rain. It was a change -- the top golfers usually start late -- that the leaders didn't seem to mind.

Like professional athletes who get ready for their respective seasons in training camp, weekend golfers prep their games in the offseason. Some work out feverishly doing golf-specific exercises. Others take lessons to hone their swings. And more than a few simply go out and take their whacks on the driving range. Jim Kardash, who has owned and operated the Arundel Golf Park in Glen Burnie since 2004, said golfers run the gamut when it comes to conditioning their bodies - and their minds - for a game that takes its toll physically and mentally.

Memo to pro scouts watching Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Los Angeles: As for Adam Yates, what you see is what you get. There's not much video of the strong-legged kicker from Sparks. Yates, 22, will strut his stuff in a game that features lesser-known prospects for April's NFL draft. He fits the bill, having kicked field goals for just two years - as a senior in both college and high school. Each time, he shined. In the fall, Yates helped South Carolina to a No. 8 national ranking after earning an athletic scholarship in his final season.

The owner of a Parkville bar can keep his liquor license but must pay a $2,000 fine after the fatal stabbing of a bouncer there over Labor Day weekend. On Monday, the Baltimore County Liquor Board ordered Tee-Bee's Place to pay the fine within 30 days, saying the bar didn't follow security procedures that could have prevented the Sept. 1 killing of bouncer Tavares Jones, who was stabbed while breaking up a fight. Jones' death was the second homicide there since this summer. The bar has also been the subject of complaints from residents, who say it is loud late at night and that patrons take up limited parking on residential streets.

A group of state lawmakers and a county councilman are urging the Baltimore County liquor board to take action against a Parkville bar where a security guard was fatally stabbed this month. In letters, the officials said the board should send a strong message to Tee-Bee's Place on Darlington Drive, where Tavares Jones was killed Sept. 1 while breaking up a fight — the second homicide at the bar this summer. In July, Derrick Gamble was fatally shot there. The letters were sent by Councilman David Marks, Sen. Kathy Klausmeier, and Dels.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Wayne Lukas, who ran two horses in the Kentucky Derby, defended Lil E. Tee's slow time, but the size of the preliminary field for the Preakness indicates that many Triple Crown trainers -- including Lukas -- want to see if the Churchill Downs winner can beat them again.Winning the 1 1/4 -mile Derby Saturday in 2:04, the slowest time for the race on a fast track since the same time by Cannonade in 1974, Lil E. Tee is not scaring away any opponents for the Preakness, the middle leg of the Triple Crown, at Pimlico May 16.A field of 13 or 14 is shaping up, which would be the greatest number of horses to run in Baltimore since Pleasant Colony, the Derby winner, beat 12 others in 1981.
