When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

Forty-six years after it was founded as a civic association with an emphasis on the outdoors, sports and fitness, the Columbia Association is exploring shifting its focus to wellness and vitality. "This is the time to initiate CA's new face and business model," CA President Phil Nelson wrote in a memo earlier this month to the CA board of directors. "(A wellness-vitality model) is more in line with nutrition and incorporates physical activity, a blend of those is what most people are looking for. " Nelson attributed the need to shift to myriad factors, including changing demographics, fitness trends, an aging population and the influx of private fitness centers in the Columbia market.

The Columbia Association Board of Directors approved Thursday the mind-body wellness concept for its downtown fitness club, which is scheduled to open in the Rouse Company building next September.  The concept, which consultants presented to the board in May, will offer customers a place to "relax, retreat and rejuvenate," and was selected based on the results of a 687-person survey. While the concept was generally well received at the May 30 meeting, the board took no official vote, prompting Thursday's official tally.

DETROIT - Since the moment right-hander Bud Norris joined the Orioles in a trade last July, he has talked about pitching in the playoffs. The chatty 29-year-old finally received the chance Sunday on a blistery afternoon at Comerica Park against the celebrated Detroit Tigers offense. He seized it, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory, catapulting the Orioles into a second postseason round - the first time they've reached the American League Championship Series since 1997.

Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez said he was somewhat surprised that he was added to the Orioles' American League Division Series roster, but he thought he might have a chance after the way he had pitched down the stretch. “I was wondering,” said Jimenez, who was 6-9 with a 4.81 ERA in 25 games this year but 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA in three September appearances. “I realize that the other guys have been doing their job, so I know it was a tough call. But I was really happy to have the opportunity to be on the roster, and I'm looking forward to doing my job.” When deciding on his 25-man ALDS roster, manager Buck Showalter said he considered several factors, including the Detroit Tigers' right-handed heavy lineup, versatility and recent performance.

Pastor Elbert Street noticed a small crack in the wall behind the pulpit at Grace Christian Baptist Church. It widened. Then a branch appeared. A cluster of leaves unfurled. That was when Street realized that something was growing between the walls of his East Baltimore church: an 8-foot-tall tree. The 79-year-old pastor and others took the wall apart, hacked down the tree and hauled away bags of branches and roots. The tree came back. They cut it down again. And then again.

The Orioles added a pair of relievers Monday, the first day of expanded rosters, as they recalled right-hander Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and purchased the contract of left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club initially planned to just add Saunders on Monday, but he decided to add Meek as well after the team was forced to use five relievers in the 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. The team is also expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb on Tuesday as long as he is OK after his outing at Norfolk on Monday.

The Orioles will make a number of moves when rosters expand Monday, including recalling at least two pitchers from Triple-A Norfolk. The club is expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb and left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides to give the team additional bullpen depth. Despite being a key part of the Orioles bullpen all season, Webb was optioned to Norfolk on Aug. 1. He was 0-2 with a 4.76 ERA in 11 games (11 1/3 innings) at Norfolk. In 42 2/3 innings with the Orioles this year, Webb has a 3-2 record and a 3.80 ERA. Saunders, a former Orioles starter who was signed to a minor league deal Aug. 5, had a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings for Norfolk while working as a multiple-inning reliever.
