Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Friday's game that left-hander Brian Matusz and hitting coach Jim Presley were fighting flu-type symptoms. Presley was sent home; Matusz never made it to the ballpark. “We've got his bug going around,” Showalter said. “It's taken about two guys out a day, seems like.” Showalter made it sound like Matusz had already visited the hospital and might have to stay there -- and that he might not be available Saturday. “I'm not sure about Brian Matusz's status [Saturday]

People I know in the city of Baltimore are incessantly on the point of moving away. Exactly where, they're not sure, but it's apparently in to an America where crime does not exist, and no one's afraid to walk the streets. It's an America we think we remember from our youth, or the movies, which are seen in our heads through missing and mist.In the city, everybody thinks this fairyland exists in suburbia. In suburbia, they know otherwise. Did I say "they?" I live in the city but sometimes shop in suburbia.

UNTIL RECENTLY, I was pretty much convinced that fishing was the most boring activity in the world. For me, fishing is always this: You bait the hook, throw the line in the water, and that's about it, action-wise. Because most of the time, the fish aren't biting. So you end up staring at the water for hours and getting a headache from the sun. And then you go home. Anyway, as I said, I didn't think anything could be more boring than that. But I was wrong. Because if you think fishing is boring, try watching these fishing shows on TV. With all these shows, the format is pretty much the same.

The front covers of men's lacrosse media guides are usually reserved for the returning leading scorer, the impenetrable goalie or the physically imposing defenseman. Geoff Leone and Bobby Lennon don't necessarily fit the bill, but that didn't prevent Navy from putting the two on the cover of this season's guide alongside senior defenseman and team captain Andy Tormey. It's an illustration of the respect the Midshipmen coaches and players have for two seniors who play a defensive midfielder position that rarely attracts much attention.

Archbishop Spalding's Jordan Cohill knew history was at stake when he lined up against Tyler Tippett in the final match of yesterday's dual meet against top-ranked Mount St. Joseph. The fifth-ranked Cavaliers trailed the Gaels by two, and if Cohill prevailed, Spalding would have its first victory over the area's No. 1 team in wrestling. Cohill won the hard-fought bout at 160 pounds by a point, and the Cavaliers won, 28-27. "Everybody was telling me the pressure was on me," Cohill said.

A day after the retirement of Steve McNair, the Ravens took the practice field not knowing who their starting quarterback is going to be. Will it be the more experienced Kyle Boller? Will it be intriguing prospect Troy Smith? Or will it be someone not even on the roster right now? Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised the work of Boller and Smith at this week's minicamp, but he didn't rule out the possibility of a rookie draft pick starting at quarterback this season. "It'll be tough for anybody to come in and win a job against [Boller and Smith]

People in big cities around the world are walking 10 percent faster than they did a decade ago, according to a study by an English psychologist that came out last week. Singaporeans were at the top of a list of 32 cities surveyed, but the pace has been picking up everywhere. The study's author, Richard Wiseman, attributes this to anxiety, a general sort of Type A impatience, and the urge toward instantaneousness let loose by the cell phone. New York was the only American city included, and it came in an unexciting eighth, just ahead of Utrecht, in the Netherlands.

How do you replace a 30-year-old broadcasting institution?If you're WCBM-AM (680), and the institution you're trying to replace is local mainstay Tom Marr, you scour the nation -- but don't neglect your own back yard.The nation part explains why you've been hearing a bunch of new voices on the air from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily for the past several weeks. So far, four hosts -- including one that's really a team of two guys -- have had a week each to convince WCBM's listeners and management that they deserve to replace Mr. Marr, who left Baltimore in February for a radio job in Philadelphia.

Craiglist.org, the Internet site full of free classifieds organized by city, is a certifiable phenomenon. I'm hearing Craigslist stories all the time now, including, of course, the one about the "full-service female escorts" who've been flying into BWI to rendezvous with "clients" who hired them through the Web site. The most famous - and far more inspiring - Craigstory is the one about Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald bartering his way, over the course of a year, from a red paper clip to a house in Saskatchewan.

A one-run lead. A fearsome hitter coming to the plate. The ninth inning of the Orioles' Saturday game against the Los Angeles Angels certainly seemed like dangerous territory for a rookie closer. But Chris Ray struck out Vladimir Guerrero and rapidly dispatched two other batters to earn his fourth save overall and his first protecting a one-run lead. Manager Sam Perlozzo no longer seems surprised when his young reliever thrives under pressure. "I'm sure he's glad to get that out of the way," Perlozzo said of the tough save.
