General manager Frank Wren insists the Braves won't trade their most valued prospects, apparently not even to bring Jake Peavy to Atlanta. Speculation about the Braves' interest in Peavy has grown since the San Diego Padres confirmed they were fielding offers for the 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner. On Sept. 29, one day after the Braves completed their first 90-loss season since 1990, Wren said he wouldn't part with the organization's top prospects. Wren made that proclamation before knowing the Padres would consider trade offers for Peavy, but he affirmed his stance yesterday.

Jose Offerman signed for a higher average salary than Roberto Alomar earned last season. Alan Mills signed for nearly $2 million more than the Orioles thought he was worth. And the real spending has yet to begin.Orioles general manager Frank Wren said yesterday that Mo Vaughn was too expensive for his taste, and that Bernie Williams and Kevin Brown were approaching that point, though he didn't know the specifics of their offers.None of that is a surprise.The real problem for the Orioles is that second-tier free agents like outfielder Brian Jordan and right-hander Todd Stottlemyre might also land contracts more lucrative than expected.

A homeless man was convicted yesterday of a brutal July 2005 rape in Severna Park, in which he broke into a woman's home, then bound, blindfolded and beat her before repeatedly assaulting her. Rodrick Lee Wren, 37, was sentenced to life in prison with all but 50 years suspended after entering an Alford plea to a charge of first-degree rape. The plea means he did not admit guilt but acknowledged that authorities had enough evidence to convict him. Wearing a dark-green jumpsuit and shackles, Wren told the court he was sorry the attack happened but that he was guilty only of withdrawing money with the woman's ATM card, taken from her purse after the attack.

You can't hold him responsible for a manager that he isn't allowed to fire. You can't hold him responsible for free-agent signings that weren't necessarily his idea. But general manager Frank Wren can't avoid responsibility for the Orioles' bullpen.It isn't his responsibility alone. Virtually every reliever merits blame. And manager Ray Miller certainly warrants scrutiny when every departed reliever from his 1998 club is performing better this season -- as is Heathcliff Slocumb, who was released April 30, and now has a 2.81 ERA in 12 games with St. Louis.

Frank Wren is under the impression that he has all the authority he needs as the Orioles' new general manager.We will see.He is under the impression that he is free to hire whoever he wants as a scouting director, personnel director and assistant GM.We will see.He is under the impression that he can go thumbs up or down on manager Ray Miller as early as next year, and if necessary, hire a replacement.We will see.After Pat Gillick's and Kevin Malone's experience of having major trades vetoed and Miller forced on them after Davey Johnson's resignation, why should anyone believe that Wren is going to be granted a typical GM's authority?

Susan Wren (Severna Park) isn't the only reason West Virginia Wesleyan is having a banner volleyball season, but she's doubtless the main one.The sophomore setter was named first-team All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and was the conference tournament MVP. Thanks in part to Wren, West Virginia Wesleyan is 38-2, has an 80-match conference winning streak dating to 1991 and is top-seeded in the coming NCAA Division II regionals.The team is peppered with Baltimore talent, including honorable mention All-WVIAC hitter Julie Kasprzak (Severna Park)

If there's any lesson in the exchange of criticisms between Orioles GM Frank Wren and manager Ray Miller that has made headlines, it's this:The general manager, and no one else, should be in charge of hiring and firing the manager.When you undermine that routine chain of command, as the Orioles have repeatedly, you end up with people on different pages.With different visions.Covering their rears.That's no way to build a winning foundation.And the Orioles' foundation is what's really wrong with them, more than any short-term problems involving the bullpen or a lack of speed.

Bel Air couple updates English-style cottage with Doric columns not far from Main Street Long before they were married, when Robert and Donna Kahoe were growing up in Bel Air, nearly everyone in town knew of the charming stone cottage nestled into a tree-lined way just off Main Street. With its sloped roof and four large wooden Doric columns holding up the front porch overhang, it had always been called the Wren Box, a name given by a former owner. The date, 1917, is engraved in concrete on the second-story, outside chimney.

CINCINNATI - B.J. Ryan sat in his hotel room in Cincinnati six years ago, unsure whether he was headed to the Reds' Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis or staying with the major league club. Though he had been optioned earlier in the day, a team official revealed that an injury to another pitcher could keep him with the Reds. He still had hope, if not a permanent address. So Ryan stuck around, watching TV and trying to relax, when his name rolled across the bottom of the screen. Viewers were informed of another trade at the non-waiver deadline.

The Wrens first played the Talking Head in downtown Baltimore 11 years ago, and no one showed up. The New Jersey rock band returned Saturday night, and the place was sold out. Fans squished against the walls of the tiny downtown club and lined the stairs to the second floor. When the band - which plays its live shows fast and loud and messy - launched into the song "Faster Gun," bass player Kevin Whelan tackled singer Charles Bissell to the ground in a bear hug, and the crowd seamlessly stepped in to sing the lyrics.

Have they no shame?The Orioles spent most of the decade leaning on Cal Ripken to mask their various failings. And last night, to culminate one of the darkest days in franchise history, they attempted to use Ripken in the most cynical way imaginable.It's going to backfire, just like everything else backfires under owner Peter Angelos. And yesterday will be forever known as Black Thursday, as opposed to Black Monday, the day Johnny Oates was dismissed in 1994, and Black Wednesday, the day Davey Johnson resigned in '97.Pretty soon, Angelos will have every day of the week covered.

ABOARD THE USS CARL VINSON - After five days of launching air sorties over Afghanistan, this nuclear-powered aircraft carrier cruising the Arabian Sea ended the opening phase of its mission last night, a senior officer said. But what the next phase will be is unclear, the officer said. "We're going to take a break from flying," Capt. Rick Wren, the commanding officer, announced to his 5,500-member crew before last night's wave of sorties. "We're going to shift our energies ... time to restock."

LONDON - She was a British signaler on a Scottish shore. He was a sailor from Ohio on a decrepit ship at sea. Four miles divided them. The staccato flashes of Morse code on lamps united them. It was the spring of 1944, and for about a month they communicated via flashes of light from ship to shore, until the sailor departed without a goodbye, bound for France, headed to D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy. She got a letter he mailed before he left and then heard nothing else. She assumed he had died.
