FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Jerry Hairston is gone, the Orioles having sent him to the Chicago Cubs in the Sammy Sosa deal, and second base belongs exclusively to Brian Roberts. No competition. Few worries. This is Roberts' fifth spring training camp, but it's unlike the previous ones. A close friend has left, and so has the pressure of earning a job. "We spent a lot of time around each other, and we're used to being around each other," said Roberts, who reported early. "But at this point, we're glad that he moved on. I know he's happy where he is, I'm happy where I am, and hopefully it will work out the best for both of us."

"That's to be expected with all the youngsters we've been playing.

For a Washington College team that returned six starters and ranked No. 8 in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, Saturday's 15-8 victory over No. 15 Washington and Lee might not be terribly significant for a program that has qualified for the last two NCAA tournaments. But for a Shoremen squad that boasts four new starters and plays several more newcomers, the win could resonate for a long time, coach Jeff Shirk acknowledged. “I think it's a big deal,” he said Monday morning.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals had put together a great plan for this season. A run at the Stanley Cup was in their view finder. And Washington may still make the run. But if the Caps do, they will do it in quite a different way from what they had first imagined. Saturday, the team learned it will be without defenseman Calle Johansson, its longtime defensive anchor. The 14-year Caps' veteran is having surgery today to repair a severely torn right rotator cuff and will be out for up to eight months.

Except for a brief period on the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad, center Mike Flynn has spent most of his 10-year NFL career as a member of the the Ravens. How does it feel to be one of six players left from the 2000 Super Bowl-winning team? It's scary, but I guess good, too. It's different. Things have really changed this year and last year with big turnover. But I guess for the guys that are still here, it's a testament to being able to stand the test of time. We have to use our experience to help these young guys and try to get back to the Super Bowl before they kick us out of the league.

When Rear Adm. Richard J. Naughton took command of training the Navy's top fighter pilots two years ago, he didn't wait long to make changes. Within a few months, he had pushed through a plan to gain oversight of 11 weapons schools around the country. And he soon turned an undistinguished tactics school in San Diego into a streamlined command he termed the Center of Maritime Dominance. But he also worried about the small stuff. Unhappy with the menu at the enlisted mess hall, he got the Navy to install a hamburger joint and a taco stand.

Losers' refrains never change, regardless of the situation, regardless of the sport. If the coach is too nice, the players want someone tougher. If the coach is too tough, the players want someone nicer.Ted Marchibroda was too nice -- that much was obvious in his three seasons with the Ravens. But will the players respond to a stricter coach -- if one is even available -- or will they simply register opposite complaints the next time around?The debate strikes at the core of this team's questionable character.

This is what it's like being High Priest in the Cult of Mel.You're leaving Camden Yards after an Orioles game when a bunch of young guys who look like they've been touring a brewery ID you."Hey, Mel Kiper Jr.!" they call out. "What'll the Ravens do in the draft?"You could blow them off, give 'em the Parris Glendening smile and wave, but that's not your style. Besides, these are your guys, hard-core National Football League draftniks, in the Cult all the way, nodding off every night to the bluish-white glow of ESPN.

The Washington Capitals are easy targets. Just look at them.Almost every other team in the Eastern Conference has made noticeable improvements, but the Capitals go into this season with beautiful, new uniforms covering the same old problems -- and some new ones.Their top scoring line of a year ago is gone: Dimitri Khristich has been traded; Peter Bondra, the NHL's leading goal scorer, and Michal Pivonka, the team's third-leading scorer, are holding out.They have Ken Klee and Jim Johnson, two defensemen, playing forward.
