While I do not condone abuse of any kind, the Ray Rice drama is bigger than the Ravens franchise, or Coach John Harbaugh, or the circle of players who gather on their knees in the center of the field at the end of a game in prayerful thanks to a higher power. One wonders how they missed John 8 in the Bible: "But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, 'Let the one among you who is without sin cast the first stone.'" Are you telling me that Ray Rice is the first and only professional athlete to ever physically abuse a woman or another person?

Before he opted out of his minor league contract with the Orioles, veteran left-hander Randy Wolf unleashed a pitch that hit the suite level at Harbor Park in Norfolk. It seems like he did it on purpose. David Hall, who covers the Tides for The Virginian-Pilot, relayed a bizarre story in his piece on the Tides' 2-1 win Sunday . Hall said that in Wolf's last appearance, he warned manager Ron Johnson that something strange was going to happen. Hall wrote: During Game 1 on Saturday, he threw a pitch that sailed to the top of the grandstand and bounded off the facade of a suite.

IRVING, Texas -- And so The Big One continues to haunt and elude Randall Cunningham and the Philadelphia Eagles.Confronted with the chance to find out exactly how they measure up to the Super Bowl champions, the Birds came up significantly short Sunday, 24-13.And in what has become the defining scenario of his star-crossed career, Cunningham was again breathtakingly athletic but again failed to lead his team to victory.It is a cruel and despicable thing to say of any athlete, that in large moments he comes up small.

There was plenty made last season of the relative disappearance of the deep ball from the  Ravens ' offense. What had been one of quarterback  Joe Flacco 's  biggest strengths - his ability to find his receivers down the field with strong and accurate throws   - became a source of great frustration. A year after throwing 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions on passes that traveled 20 yards or more, Flacco threw one touchdown and nine interceptions on such passes last season, according to  Pro Football Focus . His completion percentage dropped on such passes by nearly 15 percent as the numbers made him statistically, one of the least effective deep passers in the  NFL  last season.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace watched intently from behind the mound as Ubaldo Jimenez threw his first bullpen session in an Orioles uniform Thursday. It was the first mound session Jimenez has thrown in a while - Wallace said he's thrown off flat ground - but Wallace isn't concerned that Jimenez is behind. “I think it's early enough that he can catch up,” Wallace said. “He threw a light side today and felt pretty good. … If he's behind a few days it's not a big issue right now. You look at him, he's long he's lean and he's been healthy of the course of his career, so we'll talk to him and get his feel for how he's gone through spring training and what works for him and go from there.

Authorities are warning that a ruling by Maryland's highest court could take away a powerful weapon in the fight against crime: the state's mandatory five-year, no-parole sentence for gun possession by certain convicted felons. The Court of Appeals ruling in a Baltimore case erased a defendant's mandatory sentence and ordered him resentenced under a more lenient provision of the law. City officials decried the ruling, which comes as Baltimore is grappling with a flareup of gun violence that has left dozens wounded and 23 dead in the past three weeks.

BOSTON - The steady season that Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy had defensively in 2012 - which was capped by his first career Gold Glove Award - hid the pain that Hardy played through from spring training to the final game of the postseason. After nearly every throw he made, Hardy would feel a sharp pain in his shoulder. Often, he'd shake his arm to get the numbness out, and over the course of the season he needed two cortisone shots to help alleviate the pain. The injury - a muscle imbalance that he's dealt for years with with varying degrees of discomfort - hasn't completely gone away.

He was scheduled to make his Orioles debut, but he didn't know when he'd receive the call to enter the game from the dugout. Meanwhile, manager Buck Showalter internally wrestled with what would be the best time to bring the 22-year-old into the spotlight. "I was more excited than anything," Gausman said. "I didn't really know what was going to happen.

Buried in the leftover rubble and next to the carcass of the Oakland Raiders at M&T Bank Stadium is a concern that won't go away. The Ravens' pass coverage still scares me. They blew out the Raiders 55-20 Sunday in their most impressive game of the past two or three years, but they still surrendered 368 passing yards. It might not be a concern if the Ravens played the Cleveland Browns or Kansas City Chiefs next, but they have a big game against the Steelers on Sunday night in Pittsburgh.

The fraud scheme — hiring homeless people to steal rent checks and deposit them in fake bank accounts — made a million dollars for Tavon Davis before one of his associates was caught on the job. Panicked at the notion that his man might flip, he ordered Isiah Callaway killed. Davis thought he might go to jail for decades for fraud, according to court records, and Callaway, 19, was dead before Davis realized the penalty for operating the scheme would have been much less. Davis, who now faces a likely 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder-conspiracy charges, told a friend that his decision to order the killing made him the "schmuck of the year," according to court filings.
