NEW YORK - R ight-hander Ubaldo Jimenez can't pinpoint why April has typically been his most difficult month of the season, but he knows he can rebound from a pair of rocky starts to open his Orioles career because he's done it before. After the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday, Jimenez has lost both of his first two starts, pitched to a 6.75 ERA and allowed 21 base runners -- including eight walks -- over 10 2/3 innings. Over his career, Jimenez has a 10-10 record with a 5.02 ERA in April and is 72-67 with a 3.86 ERA after that.

I find Michael Gisriel's announced bid for one of the District 12 delegate's seats offensive. Given the fine representatives who have served our District over the years, it is insulting to our previous delegates and voters that a disbarred attorney, one with a failed term as an unsuccessful Maryland delegate in the late 1980s and an avowed special interest lobbyist to boot, would have the gall to say he's going to represent the people of District 12....

Every offseason, there is handwringing about who the Ravens lose, and that will likely start again on March 11 when free agency opens and guys like Arthur Jones , James Ihedigbo and Michael Oher likely become the latest players to join the annual offseason exodus out of the organization. But here's a question worth pondering: how many times have the Ravens actually lost a player or potential free agent that they made a significant effort to keep? It's happened before, but not often.

Laurel Park Sheer Drama sets track record on opening day After a 14-week break, live racing returned to the major Maryland tracks with the opening of the Laurel Park fall meeting. "It is good to be back home," said Laurel Park-based trainer John Salzman Sr. "It is a whole lot easier and much more relaxed racing here instead of shipping out of town. " Salzman saddled Clapping to a score in the third race. The daughter of Congrats cruised to an early lead and held on to beat Looksgoodfromhere and six other 2-year-old fillies.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Local 27 recently testified in favor of Penn National Gaming's proposal to put the Prince George's County casino license at Rosecroft Raceway ( "Penn National raises stakes in fight for P.G. Co. casino license," Oct. 21). There is one reason that stands above the rest as to why we did this: Penn has been a good employer and good partner at Rosecroft and at Hollywood Casino at Perryville where we represent workers. They've honored the agreements they made with us and the workers we represent.

After a week without racing, Laurel Park reopened yesterday with some concern that the lack of training might be a detriment for some entries.But an absence from the track didn't bother Foxie G.The gelding stalked pace-setting Higher Strata until they straightened out in the stretch, then wore him down to win the $53,900 Northern Wolf Stakes by three-quarters of a length.The winning six-furlong time of 1 minute, 9 seconds was the fastest of the meeting and one second off the track record set by Fighting Notion in the summer of 1992.

LONG POND, Pa. -- Ken Schrader won his third pole position of the NASCAR season yesterday with a track record of 162.816 mph at Pocono International Speedway, overtaking Dale Earnhardt and Rusty Wallace for the lead in poles this year.Now Schrader is searching for his first victory of the year."I'd trade this pole for a win," Schrader said after qualifying runs for tomorrow's Champion Spark Plug 500. "I'd rather win 'em both though."Last year Schrader gained the pole for the same race, setting what was then a record of 162.499 mph. But that was followed by a disappointing fourth-place finish two days later.

Admittedly, when I heard the Ravens were on the verge of hiring Wisconsin running backs coach Thomas Hammock, I didn't know anything about him. The Ravens have been looking to poach a couple of young, bright assistants from the college ranks to round out their coaching staff, and Hammock fits the bill. And while I still don't know much about him, it's hard to argue with his track record at Wisconsin . Hammock, who once shared a backfield with Michael Turner at North Illinois, had been working with the Badgers backs since 2011.

It was sad to read that a court has approved the National Security Agency's spying on American citizens ("Judge upholds NSA phone scrutiny," Dec. 28). The agency is gathering "intelligence" on me when I make phone calls and collects the dates and phone numbers called. This is an illegal search and seizure, yet a federal judge in New York ruled that it is constitutional. The only reason would seem to be that he was protecting the NSA. What have I done that permits the NSA to seize my private data?

I love it when politicians who have been in power for some time all of a sudden have a change of heart. Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler now says that he is a different Democrat from all of the others and that it is time to cut taxes ("Candidates for governor pledge tax cuts for business," Oct. 4). Although I agree wholeheartedly with his words, especially regarding the various taxes on gasoline, cell phones, water, air and health or whatever else has come or will be coming to Maryland, I highly suspect his actions.

It's Obamacare activation and government "shutdown" week in Washington, where the consequences of misplaced faith in government are everywhere. Still, "true believers" remain faithful that Obamacare will be the exception to government's past failures in achieving big goals. There are examples galore of government's inability to do things well and at reasonable cost, but that doesn't deter those who continue to believe government can solve every problem. The U.S. Postal Service wants to raise the cost of a first-class stamp from 46 cents to 49 cents in order to cover a "precarious financial condition.

TRYING TO ERASE 32 years of misrule, its newest savior has renamed Zaire as the Democratic Republic of Congo and reimposed the flag it took at independence. As a fiery leftist of the 1960s, President Laurent Kabila is trying symbolically to turn the calendar back three decades and redo things right. But in real policy, the only way is forward.Mr. Kabila has no track record in government. Contradictory messages from him told each hearer what he or she wished to hear. A radio broadcast in his name was full of 1960s revolutionary rhetoric.
