If you're surprised that Buck Showalter is about to become the next manager of the Orioles, you probably haven't been paying attention. But, at this point in consecutive losing season No. 13, who could blame you for that? Showalter has been the leading candidate for weeks, and probably the only candidate since he had his third interview/meeting with club officials earlier this month. The only thing that is curious is the timing of putting him into the dugout Tuesday night at Camden Yards.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

The Western Conference isn't a Lakers lake as it was in the '80s, when they made eight NBA Finals, beating five different West finalists 32 games to 7. Nor is it the land of titans it was from 2000 to '02, when the Lakers won three titles despite finishing No. 2 in the conference to the San Antonio in '01 — and No. 2 in the Pacific Division to Sacramento in '02, when the Kings and Spurs were 1-2 in the West. Injury issues and all, the Lakers are favored to come out of the West draw for the fourth season in a row over ... whomever.

One of the things I like about baseball - and there are a lot of things to like, especially when the Orioles reach the American League Championship Series - is the way it marks time. You don't have to be a stats freak to remember the milestones. When your team is alive in October, the year of that happy development registers forever. In the Barry Levinson-directed film adaptation of Bernard Malamud's "The Natural," the fictional slugger Roy Hobbs shatters the glass clock in center field with a line-drive home run. That is to say: Baseball will never be ruled by time.

The Coppin State men's basketball team dropped a pair of decisions to national powerhouses over Thanksgiving weekend, but there was at least one positive. Senior forward Michael Murray returned from a broken right (shooting) hand and made his season debut in Friday's 87-45 loss to No. 22 Michigan. He scored four points on 1-for-8 shooting, including 0-for-5 from the 3-point arc, and grabbed four rebounds in 23 minutes. Murray made his first start in Sunday's 86-51 loss to then-No.

The 2000s were that type of decade for investors as the stock market showed its fickle ways, brutalizing investors in two bear markets, then turning sweet when a rally seemed hard to believe. Through it all, investors wrestled with choices: fleeing to safety, hunting for a mutual fund they thought they could trust or trying to recover from losses. Now, said Morningstar Inc. director of mutual fund research Russel Kinnel, it's clear there was a lot of churn that didn't take investors far. "People's market timing was very poor," he said.

Mount St. Joseph football coach Blake Henry thought about calling a draw play for quarterback Luke Casey when the Gaels had a chance to win Thursday night's game against Friendship Collegiate Academy. Instead, trailing 18-13 with 3 yards to go on fourth down and 10.1 seconds on the clock, the coach opted for a pass play to Sam Benjamin. Casey's pass didn't reach Benjamin on the goal line, because Friendship defensive back Reginal Wyatt made a diving deflection to preserve the Knights' victory in the I-95 Kickoff Classic at Bowie State University.

There was no need to ask Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff how missing a potential game-tying field goal Sunday in the final seconds against New England with a Super Bowl trip on the line gnawed at him. The disappointment already resonated -- a mix of remorse and resolve -- in his voice. "The timing seemed a little bit off. Just the dynamics of the play," said Cundiff, in hushed tones, during a telephone interview with The Des Moines Register after a 23-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC championship game.

Obviously, the Orioles were hoping that the arrival of Buck Showalter two weeks ago would be an elixir for what was -- at the time -- baseball's losingest team, but Andy MacPhail wasn't expecting the club to turn on a dime. Sometimes, timing really is everything, and through the miracle of perfect hindsight, we now know that Aug. 3 was the perfect day to start the Showalter era. "I didn't expect us to be 10-4 [before Tuesday night's loss], but I did feel the date was important," MacPhail said.

If you are trying to make sense of the Orioles' early-season collapse, I would suggest that you save your emotional energy. The O's are in a funk of near-1988 proportion, which is saying quite a lot when you consider that the '88 Orioles pulled off the worst start in the history of major league baseball. There are some message-board geniuses out there who say they knew it all along, but there was no way to predict — and there is no way to adequately explain — what has happened at the outset of the 2010 season.

First impressions: Legends of the Fog stops just shy of being a full-blown festival-style amusement park situated in the middle of a massive corn field. With an entry area featuring horror-ific midway games like "Zombie Ball" and a "Coffin Ride," alongside a fire pit for warmth/teenage makeout sessions and food trucks for pre-terror sustenance, the atmosphere is pretty family friendly.

Races in the Baltimore Running Festival will begin an hour earlier than originally scheduled because of the Orioles' deep run into the baseball postseason. In a letter to participants posted on the running festival's website , organizer Lee Corrigan wrote that start times were made earlier to "ensure all public safety personnel can be deployed in an organized fashion.

The head of the Baltimore County school administrators union said the majority of misconduct cases against administrators can "be resolved more expeditiously. " Speaking at the county school board meeting on Tuesday night, William Lawrence, executive director of the Council of Administrative and Supervisory Employees, suggested that the union and the county work together on resolving cases more quickly. Currently, administrators and teachers can spend weeks and months investigating a teacher for misconduct, sometimes while they sit in a warehouse.

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

Maybe this all has been drummed up by the ever-in-search-of-controversy New York Post, but it appears Carmelo Anthony is disgruntled once again . According to an anonymous source, he's upset with the direction of the New York Knicks , wants more input on personnel decisions and hates playing for coach Mike D'Antoni (who, as of a few minutes ago, resigned according to Yahoo! ).* The timing is interesting. Think back to nine years ago, when Carmelo Anthony was well-known to true basketball aficionados -- and Baltimoreans who'd followed his rise at Towson Catholic and on local playgrounds -- but only on the cusp of becoming a household name.

Miami had just beaten New England on the road, 20-10, and Miami Dolphins tight end Greg Baty was relaxing in the afterglow of one his best days as a professional football player. For the moment, the fear didn't show in his eyes.He had caught four passes from Dan Marino for 89 yards. A good day's work. "I can't wait to go home and hug my wife," he said.That's when the haunted look returned to his face. He had thought of his wife, Kathleen, home and alone.Granted, she's in no more danger now than any other woman alone.

In the wake of President Barack Obama's declaration of war on ISIS and the fact that several dozen ISIS members with American citizenship are believed to have already re-entered the country, along with the near simultaneous multiple failures of the Secret Service to properly protect Mr. Obama, I believe it is time to do with the White House what was done during World War II.

Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.
