IF BALTIMORE IS indeed a baseball town, then its passion for the game will be severely challenged for the next couple of seasons. The team waved a white flag on the 2000 season and sent a signal to its fans about two weeks ago that it was rebuilding for the future when it traded some of its Golden Boys of Summer for some new blood that included 14 new players. But rebuilding means at least two more years of marginal baseball, and adds to the frustration of a city that has endured two straight losing seasons with a third in the making.

There was a time when Vero Beach was a sleepy little town that came alive for six weeks every year when the Dodgers moved into Dodgertown for spring training. The players jokingly referred to it as "Zero Beach," back when I was a Dodgers beat writer here in the early 1980s. The area has been built up considerably since then, and a few of those Dodgers players and coaches who used to joke about it have moved here to enjoy the relatively quiet life along this picturesque stretch of Atlantic coastline.

WIMBLEDON, England -- The running joke at Wimbledon is the statue of Fred Perry that stands inside the front gate of the All England Club has a better chance of winning a title than a flesh-and-blood British tennis player.Perry was the last British man to win Wimbledon. That was back in 1936.It seems that the British just don't do tennis anymore. The oddsmakers at Ladbroke's betting parlor said it's 1,000-1 against British players winning a men's or women's singles title this year. Which begs the question: Why are the odds so low?

Check out the trades the Washington Capitals have been able to perpetrate on teams in the NHL during the last decade or so and you soon conclude they have probably led the league in that department.Good thing. Otherwise, they would still be back in the morass of 20 or so victories a season and in last place in the Patrick Division.Always a reward of lousy play, however, is that a floundering team assumes the divine right of ineptitude being rewarded in the form of access to top young players worldwide in the annual draft.

As No. 6 St. Frances avenged an early season loss to No. 3 McDonogh last night, the 58-42 victory came as a result of the young Panthers' development as a team rather than McDonogh falling into a slump. The visiting Eagles, who started the season 16-0, suffered their second straight loss. The Panthers (12-6) have won five of their past six to pull even with McDonogh at 11-2 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. "This says a lot about St. Frances' growth as a team," said McDonogh coach Tom Gizzi, whose squad won a 54-41 decision on Dec. 6. "We caught them in the second game of the year, but they were very, very young.

Last season, Laurel High's boys soccer team felt it could be their time to win a regional championship. However, after a 10-5 regular season that earned them the No. 10 seed in the 4A regional playoffs, Laurel's season ended with a bitter 1-0 loss to second-seeded Parkdale in the second round of the playoffs. Players have put that playoff loss and last year behind them and have focused on the promise of this year's team. Some of the senior leaders say this could be Laurel's best team in years, despite their youth and the loss of many seniors from last year's team.
