The last time the Orioles met the Red Sox, they played baseball's version of the Boston Marathon - a 17-inning game at Fenway Park that completed Baltimore's first sweep of Boston since 1994. And the last time the Red Sox came to Camden Yards, they left with their season shattered, sending them prematurely into an offseason of upheaval. Its pretty clear that the Orioles have had the Red Sox's number of late, beating Boston in seven of their last eight entering Monday. But these Red Sox arrived at Camden Yards surging, winners of eight of their last 10 games as they try to work their way out of the early-season American League East cellar.

Antoine Myers loved the idea of learning from one of the game's best point guards of all time, making his commitment to Isiah Thomas ' Florida International program an easy decision. A week after Myers' pledge to the Panthers, however, plans to play for the NBA Hall of Famer were ended when FIU dismissed Thomas. “It was difficult,” Myers said. “I had my mind set on going to one place and then for all that stuff to happen, to reopen my recruitment and try to like another school, it was kind of hard.”  While Myers was upset with Thomas' dismissal, several mid-major programs were ecstatic that the 6-foot-3, 190-pound point guard was back on the market.

Can Troyzan manage to stick around for another week, or will this be the most predictable season of "Survivor" ever? Back from Tribal Council, Tarzan has figured out that the numbers are not in his favor, but he's wrong if he thinks sticking with the women and keeping his head down is the way to go. If Troy gets immunity (which could easily happen), Tarzan is going home. Kim is disturbed that she's been outed as a target -- umm, you've been pulling the strings for a couple of weeks now (out of a total 4)

Former Ravens quarterback Troy Smith has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette . Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner and a fifth-round pick by the Ravens in 2007, spent three seasons with the team before losing the primary backup job to Marc Bulger during the 2010 training camp. Smith bounced around with the San Francisco 49ers and the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks before agreeing to a deal with the Ravens' nemesis. Smith could be competing with Byron Leftwich, Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon for the right to back up starter Ben Roethlisberger.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo tried to lighten the mood at practice last week, finishing one session with a 40-yard dash between pair of plebe defensive linemen who don't play and preaching to his Midshipmen that they needed to forget their six-game losing streak when they stepped onto the field Saturday to play Troy. In retrospect, what it really took for Niumatalolo and his team to forget what he called a "Halloween October" was a win -- any kind of victory would do. That it came in a 42-14 dismantling of Troy before an announced Senior Day Crowd of 33,359 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium certainly allowed the Midshipmen to savor it a little more.

When Aaron Santiago fell awkwardly and broke his left arm in two places in a 40-14 win at Western Kentucky on Sept. 10, some thought the senior slotback might have played his last game for Navy. When Kriss Proctor felt his left elbow pop out of place for the second time this season two weeks ago against East Carolina, the senior quarterback looked like he was done for awhile, too. Both were at practice Monday in Annapolis and both are expected to play Saturday on Senior Day when Navy (2-6)

The Steelers have been negotiating with the agent for safety Troy Polamalu over the past several days, an 11th-hour attempt to sign the NFL defensive player of the year before the season begins Sunday. Polamalu is entering the final season of his contract, and their previous discussions this summer with agent Marvin Demoff went nowhere and stalled. After the Steelers signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a six-year, $50 million contract two weeks ago, they decided they could do no more extensions until after the season.
