URBAN RENEWAL

Court gives ground rents a new lease on life BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Lawmakers say that they will again take up the issue of ground rents when the Maryland Legislature begins its session in January. Last week the Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, threw out a provision in a 2007 law that would have “extinguished,” or essentially If you killed your killed, ground rents that ground rent through extinguishment were not registered by the their owners, in exchange process during the past for a recording fee of $40 year, your ground rent’s back from the dead. and a little legwork at the courthouse downtown. The ground rent landlords were given three years to register. If their leases were not registered by Sept. 30, CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

City has money to overhaul Virginia Baker Rec Center The Department of Recreation and Parks is calling a meeting to hear what people want from a renovated and rejuvenated Virginia Baker Rec. “The point of the meeting is that we have no plan,” says urban planner Kate Brower.

BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Most city buildings tend to the grand and historic (the Central Library, City Hall), or the charming and historic (the Canton Library, old Poly High School). And then there are rec centers, which tend to the Fort Apache School of Architecture. Sturdy, squat, and window- and charm-free.

Playoffs are the prize in Poets and Clippers annual matchup BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM This year’s annual meeting between Dunbar and Patterson will once again be a battle of teams of contrasting styles. Patterson runs the spread offense, which is built to get speedy playmakers the ball in space. Dunbar wants to run downhill and has plenty of weapons to do so. Here’s a

quick look at what each team will want to do when they have the ball: When Patterson has the ball The Clippers, assuming quarterback Craig Oliver is healthy and back in the lineup, will line up in the shotgun formation all game.

Of the city’s 55 rec centers, the majority were constructed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and what was new and improved 40 to 50 years ago is now outmoded and in many cases, obsolete. (Need proof? Think about what has happened in the intervening years: ADA requirements, ecofriendly construction and wi-fi capabilities -- and that’s just a start). But, say officials, there’s more.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2011

NEIGHBORHOOD

BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM In Baltimore City, where more than 80 percent of voters are registered Democrats, the outcome of the general election is just about preordained. There are some races to watch in the city though: Shannon Sneed, a broadcast journalist who lost a squeaker to incumbent Warren Branch in the 13th District in the Democratic primary, is running an energetic write-in campaign to unseat him in the general election. Sneed has the support of Antonio Glover, a Belair-Edison Democrat who ran against Branch and Sneed in the primary and finished third. Branch has stepped up his efforts in the district and campaigned door-to-door. The 13th District contains portions of Butchers Hill and Upper Fells Point, precincts that were added to the district during the recent post-census redistricting process. There are two City Charter amendments up for referendum. The first, Question A, would authorize the Mayor and City

Council to establish a fund for Baltimore City Public Schools. The fund would be used for new school construction, renovation of aging schools, improvement of athletic and recreation facilities and purchase of “education-related� equipment and supplies. The fund would be dedicated to city public schools, and money that is not spent would remain in the public schools fund instead of going to the city’s general fund. The fund would receive money from several sources. The city can allocate money to the fund from the general fund. The schools fund can also solicit and accept grants and donations. Question B would lower the minimum age for candidates for City Council to 18. The age is currently 21. The amendment also requires that candidates be registered to vote in Baltimore City. Early voting at St. Brigid’s Parish Center, 900 S. East Ave. in Canton, and four other locations citywide ends today, Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. For early voting locations check http://www.baltimorecity.gov/ Government/BoardsandCommissions/

ballot counters, the guys who set up the machines, the guys who drive the machines to the voting rooms, overtime for the cops who patrol the polls and carry the hard drives with the results to the Board of Elections, etc., etc. Democracy is not cheap. So, in these challenging times for city budgets, why do we hold a state election for $4 million, and then turn around the next year and hold a city election for another $4 million? Why not combine them? Glad you asked. All of us, or at least just about all of us, aspire to something bigger. Triple-A ballplayers dream of the majors. Assistant principals know in their hearts that they’d be better than the guy currently in the big office. Middle managers dream of being CEOs and mismanaging huge corporations. City Council members dream of the state legislature. State legislators dream of the second floor of City Hall, where the big ceremonial office is. And if a politician can try for another office without risking his current office, well, then, he likes that a lot. For instance, State Senator Catherine Pugh took a whack at the mayor’s office in the Democratic primary this year. She lost, but she’s keeping her job in the State Senate. For that sort of risk-free political aspiration, taxpayers pay $8 million in two years—two primaries, two general elections, one set for state offices, one set for city offices. When, if we just made politicians take a leap of faith--take a little risk--we’d spend only $4 million. $4 million is a lot of money. If you’re the Enoch Pratt Free Library, it’s more than 10 percent of the operating budget. Over at Recreation and Parks, it’s more than 15 percent of the city’s allocation. I mention these two departments because they are the usual targets when city officials sharpen their budget axes. Combining the two elections would complicate things somewhat for candidates, because it would make fundraising harder--corporations and individuals are limited to a certain amount per election cycle, and combining the election cycles would force city candidates and state candidates to fight for the same pool of money. I have given this fundraising problem a great deal of thought--about 30 seconds’ worth--and decided that seri-

The election judges at Engine Company 5 should bring a nice novel with them Tuesday—turnout for the city’s general election is predicted to be south of 20 percent, nothing like the 68 percent who voted in the 2008 general election. Photo by Jacqueline Watts

ously, it’s not the taxpayers’ problem. What taxpayers want is honest, efficient and responsive government, and most of us don’t give a hoot about upward or sideways movement of political office holders. Let losing candidates mouse through Monster.com with the rest of us.

It doesn’t really matter whether the city elections are aligned with the state elections or with the feds, as long as they are realigned. $4 million is a lot of money to save. Let’s keep more rec centers and libraries open, and in the summer maybe mow the parks a little more often.

Rec Centers CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Recreation programming itself has changed over those decades, as has the use of rec centers. Bottom line: rec centers need to be brought into the 21st Century. Southeast Baltimore is preparing to take the first step in that process. A meeting is being planned to discuss the Virginia S. Baker Rec Center, located in Patterson Park at 2601 E. Baltimore Street, near the intersection of Baltimore Street and Luzerne Avenue. The meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m. at the rec center. The meeting had originally been set for Wednesday, Nov. 2, but after objections by northeast Baltimore City Councilman Bill Henry (D-4), the meeting had to be postponed so that City Council members could meet to discuss the Mayor’s Recreation Task Center Report, which recommends funding be allocated to improve some centers over others. The meeting, when it does happen, will be open to the public with all ages welcome to attend, and to suggest improvements to the rec center. According to Kathy Harget, executive director of the Friends of Patterson Park, a few physical modifications come to mind immediately. “A new facade,” she says, “and some upgraded facilities for both the department and the community.” According to a report published by the city, the Department of Recreation and Parks has allocated funding to allow the Baker Center to become “an expanded, environmentally-friendly community center.” The meeting tonight is intended to take the pulse of the community and find out what types of programming and facilities it would like, with an eye to implementing these suggestions as part of the physical renovations of the center. In addition to suggestions for pro-

gramming, community members will be asked to provide ideas for indoor and outdoor space, and whether and how the center can work with local community associations and schools to help one another. “This really is the first of the community meetings being planned for Patterson Park,” says Harget. “It’s an opportunity for the community to express what they would like to see in the facility.” “There is no plan,” says Kate Brower, an urban planner at Rec and Parks. “We want to listen to the whole smorgasbord of what people want to see in the facility.” Brower said that the building’s designers will attend the meeting, listen to the comments and come up with a couple of options to be shown at a later meeting. Four major renovations planned According to a fact sheet published by the Mayor’s Task Force For Recreation Centers, the department will construct a total of three new community centers and substantially renovate and expand one center at a total cost of $14.8 million. In Patterson Park, the Baker Rec Center is scheduled for expansion from 12,200 to 18,000-20,000 square feet; the construction will add classrooms and recreational spaces. While programming will be offered for all ages, there will be an emphasis on youth programs and activities. The city has budgeted $3 million for the renovation and addition. The other three facilities to be rebuilt are as follows: • Morrell Park Rec Center in South Baltimore: Plans call for reconstruction to include a 17,000 square foot, two-story facility with a gymnasium, locker rooms and four activity/exercise rooms with a mezzanine level containing a reception area, office, computer lab, activity room, community meeting space with a kitchen, rest-

For background on the Mayor’s Recreation Center Task Force Report visit www.baltimorecity.gov/Government/AgenciesDepartments/RecreationandParks rooms, storage space and an outdoor deck. • Cherry Hill Rec Center: According to the report, Cherry Hill’s new facility will be located on the 800 block of Roundview Road adjacent to two public schools. This facility is in its initial design phase, and is using community meetings, similar to the one tonight in Patterson Park, to create a final design plan. When complete, the center is expected to be approximately 15,00020,000 square feet. • Rita Church Rec in Clifton Park: This project is now underway after a July groundbreaking. Completion date is September 2012. An existing historic pavilion is being converted into a facility equipped with locker rooms, lounge, computer lab, kitchen, craft room, multipurpose room, game room and office space. A second phase, currently in design, will add 11,500 square feet and include a gymnasium, restrooms and concession space. More changes coming In addition, the city has plans to change its remaining centers. Ten existing recreation centers will be expanded to become what are known as ‘model community centers’ by enlarging and refurnishing them, and by increasing staffing and hours. Another 16 existing rec centers will be upgraded with physical repairs, increased staff and improved programming options and hours. The remaining 25 rec centers, according to the city, will become eligible for charter center, collaboration and partnership pro-

grams. The city hopes to contract with organizations similar to the ones that now work with the city on charter schools. To download the report and a fact sheet and implementation plan for Baltimore’s Rec Centers, can go to www. baltimorecity.gov/recnparks. In that report is a full list of which centers will receive which improvements. Note: The meeting tonight, to discuss the Patterson Park project, begins at at 6:30 p.m. at the Virginia S. Baker Center, 2601 E. Baltimore Street, and is open to the public. Spanish language interpretation will be provided. Info: 410-276-3676, katie@pattersonpark.com.

NEIGHBORHOOD

Grounded Out CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

2010, the ground rent tenants would have the right to extinguish. More than 2,000 homeowners, most of them in Baltimore City, took advantage of the extinguishment process. Now, thanks to the Court of Appeals’ decision in Miskun v. Maryland, the extinguished ground rents are back from the dead, but the landlords are still required to register them. However, there is no penalty at the moment for not registering, and landlords can demand payment on an unregistered lease. The majority opinion stated that the penalty--loss of the lease--was too harsh for the offense, failure to register. It said that the extinguishment provision was an unconstitutional taking of property. Ground rent is an ancient, and sometimes awkward, feature of real estate in Maryland. From Colonial times on up to the early 20th century, homeowners would often buy the building, but not the land it sits on, and would lease the land for a small annual rent, usually ranging from $25 to $200. Ground rents run for 99 years and are renewable forever. The practice helped keep home

prices low. That is the ancient part. The awkward part is the thousands of ground rents whose owners cannot be found, or are dead, and whose heirs do not know about the rents or do not want to go through the trouble of billing and collecting an amount that is by 21st century standards truly tiny. Those “zombie” ground rents have to be taken into account every time a house with a ground rent changes hands. In most cases, the title company will take an attorney’s fee and three years’ rent from the seller of the house and hold it in escrow. If the ground rent owner appears and demands the money within three years, he gets the three years’ rent. If no one appears, the rent is paid back to the seller. The buyer, on the other hand, is liable for the ground rent due after the sale, but usually has no idea to whom the ground rent should be paid. This awkwardness came to a head in the real-estate boom times, as unscrupulous investors bought hundreds of ground rents and used the privilege of

“ejectment” to claim the houses of people who had not paid their ground rent. They then turned around and sold the houses, often at hundreds of times the amount of ground rent owed. Or the investors would pile late fees and attorney fees onto the amount owed, making it unaffordable for many. Quite often the debtor had no idea that money was owed, no idea that he had been served with papers to pay the debt, and no idea that he had missed a court date to clear up the matter because the rules of service were unclear and tilted steeply toward the ground rent owner. The Baltimore Sun exposed the scandal in a spectacular series of stories in 2006, and the legislature went into action in the 2007 session. Besides the law allowing the holders of zombie ground rents to extinguish them, the legislature passed laws limiting the landlords’ right of ejectment. That law is currently under challenge in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. The legislature also created laws that: • require landlords to give 60 days notice directly to the tenant before a ground rent payment is considered late; • give the tenant the absolute right to redeem the ground lease for a fee that is generally between $2,000 and $3,000, whether or not the landlord wants to accept the redemption; • require that landlords place in their ground rent bills a notice of the right of redemption; • place a three-year limit on collection of back ground rent; • prohibit the creation of new ground rents. None of those laws is currently being challenged. Robert Young, director of the state Department of Assessments and Taxation, said the department reopened the ground rent registry on Oct. 26, the day after the Court of Appeals announced its decision. He also said the

department would send a letter to all of the homeowners who extinguished their rents informing them that their ground rents are once again live. However, most of those people still will not know to whom they are supposed to be paying the rent. “That’s the Catch-22. If [the lease] isn’t registered, how do you know who owns the ground rent?” said Young. “You don’t know who to pay.” Doyle Niemann, a Prince Georges County delegate who chaired the committee that wrote the bills in 2007, said he is disappointed in the court’s ruling. “They took a narrow interpretation of the issue,” he said. “It throws the whole scheme we have for dealing with a real problem up in the air…[ground rents] are still there to clog up titles, and for people who manipulate ground rents to extort money and seize property to use.” Niemann (D-47) said that the housing and real property subcommittee had a regularly scheduled meeting the day after the ruling and “chatted” about the decision. “The court made some recommendations. We could make a ground rent unenforceable in court if it’s not registered. That’s worth considering,” he said. Nancy Rachuba, a Realtor with Diversified Real Estate in Canton, said that ground rents don’t necessarily “gum up” transfers, but they do complicate them. Rachuba said she is currently keeping an eye on a sale she made three years ago, and she is trying to get the escrowed ground rent returned to the seller. But since ground rent registration is reopened she, and the seller, will have to wait. “I’m going to get him that money,” she said. “Sooner or later. I always do.” “This is an issue we are going to have to pursue in January,” said Niemann. “The goal is to restore sanity and reason to the housing market, and ground rents don’t help.”

Ready for ravioli? St. Leo’s is ready for you

BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM I unked Ravioli. I wandered over to the old St. Leo’s School Hall to help make ravioli for Sunday’s semi-annual spaghetti, meatball and ravioli dinner, and my form was found wanting. Never mind, I had a great time, and if at ďŹ rst you don’t succeed, try try again, is my motto. There will be more ravioli to make in March, and I will be there. Why? Because it’s fun. People come from all over the state to help make 12,000 cheese and herb ravioli for the dinner. That’s not a typo. The parish will serve more than 2,000 dinners on Sunday, sit-down and carryout. The dinners are $11 adults, $5.50 kids.

What’s to do!

You get a salad and bread with dinner, and wine is extra. It’s a cheap and excellent Sunday dinner, and the company in the hall is very enjoyable indeed. OK, so how do you make ravioli? St. Leo’s uses an assembly line. The dough—made of our, eggs and salt—is mixed 20 pounds at a time in a big oor mixer in the kitchen. Then the dough is allowed to rest. Dough, no matter what it is, always has to rest. Then it is taken out to this very cool machine that zips the dough into long, thin sheets, maybe eight or nine inches wide and three or four feet long. You should see it. Then the dough goes to various tables where volunteers shape it into cheese and herb ravioli. This is the hard part, though it looks easy. First you lay the dough in front of you. As a beginner I tried a piece about eight by four inches. The experts can do a couple of feet of dough or more. You can make two ravioli out of a fourby-eight inch piece of dough. Rule number one is you don’t waste the dough. You place two dollops of ricotta cheese, about two teaspoons each, onto the dough. Then you roll the dough over the cheese and cup your ďŹ ngers so it creates a little cheese pillow. Then you ruthlessly press all the air out from around the cheese and cut the resulting package into two ravioli. Crimp with a fork, being careful not to poke a hole in the ravioli, trim, and you’re done with .06 of a percent of the chore facing the St. Leo volunteers. The ravioli must ďŹ t 60 to a sheet pan, six across and 10 down. They must each be the same size, and they cannot touch on the pan. I did not do this at all well. Fortunately, about 40 others in the room did it very well, and we ďŹ nished right around noon. Mick Stachura, a Little Italy resident and parishioner at St. Leo, comes for every ravioli session, and she is one of those folks who can make six or eight ravioli at a time. “I love coming here,â€? she said. “I see people I haven’t seen in months.â€? The volunteers ranged in age from eight-ish to 80-ish.

Jo Ann McDonald recalled her grandmother making pasta. Nonna used a “guitar,â€? a box with many wires like guitar strings. She would start with a mound of our and make a well in the center, then crack eggs into the well. She mixed and kneaded with her hands. Jo remembers the ratio as ďŹ ve pounds of our to a dozen eggs. Then Nonna would roll the dough very thin and press it through the guitar—and ecco, fettucine! Jo’s job as a young girl was to lay out the noodles on oured tea towels. Ravioli was something else. “Ravioli were the special dinner for the holidays,â€? said Jo. “They are a lot of work.â€? There were six of us at the table, and we talked about the August earthquake, where to ďŹ nd good baklava, the myriad ways to make marinara sauce, the mayor, sausages, wine, similarities between pierogi and ravioli, sour beef and dumplings, George Clooney, and the perfection of the ravioli that the young couple across the room made. “A whole sheet of ravioli and they were identical,â€? raved Nancy Schapiro, Jo’s friend from Dundalk. Jo and Nancy are Italian, whatever their surnames suggest. I’m beginning to think ravioli making may be genetic.

Murder in Greektown: IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

My break-through novel, circa 1944-1983, set in a World War II backdrop, is loaded with unpredictable twists and turns that takes place largely in Greektown and features police drama and detective work from the Southeastern Precinct. Long-time residents of the area will recognize many past familiar sights: Click’s Pool Room, the Garden Bar and bakery, Baltimore Market, Benny’s Seafood, the New Nemo movie theater, Illona Restaurant, just to name a few. More action is generated when firefighters from Forty-One Engine on Conkling Street battle a death-defying blaze on the Pratt Street Wharf based on the McCormick Spices fire catastrophe on December 31, 1969. Numerous Baltimore landmarks are also found in this fast-paced and sometimes shocking story of suspense, mystery and extreme murder. Recommended for Mature Readers Only

Poets-Clippers preview CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Nyme Manns, the latter being a player that can excel in man-to-man situations. Oliver trusts Manns, about 6-foot-4, in jump ball situations. Receiver Anthony Dandridge has also proven to be a reliable target for Patterson this season. The Clippers will also split Beasley out wide as he can play multiple positions within this spread offense. He’ll line up at running back, wide receiver and slot receiver depending on what play coach Corey Johnson calls. If Oliver’s primary reads aren’t there in the passing game, the option to pull the ball down and run is available, and Oliver has a knack for making plays with his feet. Dunbar’s defense is big and powerful up front though and will look to pressure Oliver from the start, hoping to prevent any of these broken plays from going for big yardage. When Dunbar has the ball When you have a player as talented as senior receiver Deontay McManus, the game plan is clear: Get him the ball. With the Poets breaking in a sophomore

quarterback this season in William Crest, and with teams shadowing McManus in the passing game, it’s been hard to get him the ball. So against Poly earlier this season, the Poets altered their game plan and lined McManus up as a running back in the pistol formation to much success. Ultimately, the Poets want to play smash mouth football and wear down opposing defenses. McManus, at 6-2, 212 pounds, can be maddening for a defensive coordinator as his combination of elusiveness and power can take its toll. But Dunbar also likes to pound the rock in the I-formation with Lavar Highsmith, a 6-foot, 220-pound downhill-running tailback. Crest has picked up the passing game better as the season’s gone along. With McManus receiving the bulk of the attention, senior Aaron Haynes has had the chance to catch plenty of passes. Senior tight end Ernest Hawkins is a threat in the passing game, as well as toting the ball when lined up in the backfield in Dunbar’s pistol formation.

Digital Harbor, Dunbar post wins BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Digital Harbor recorded a 12-0 shutout over Douglass last Friday to improve its playoff chances. Running back Marquis Walker scored one of Digital Harborís touchdowns with a 12-yard run. Junior receiver Keon Charles scored the other on a 20-yard reception. Coach Keith Rudolph said heís pleased with where the running game has been the last couple of weeks. He’s hoping the Rams can implement a few runs unfamiliar to Edmondson-Westside in the season finale next week. On defense, the Rams will hope to carry the momentum last Fridayís shutout into this week’s game. “We have to tackle and maintain our

responsibilities this week, and weíll be fine,” Rudolph said. The Rams will still be without quarterback Dominic Barnes, who is still recovering from a broken tibia. The Rams were hoping to get Barnes back for this contest. Poets win, Patterson up next Dunbar fullback Charles Brown scored a touchdown in Dunbarís 22-12 win over Carver last Friday. The win kept the Poets in sole possession of second place of the Baltimore City League standings. Defense led the way for the Poets once again as defensive back Ryan Crowder ran back a 51-yard interception for a touchdown. Up next for the Poets is a showdown with rival Patterson.

THE PLAYOFF HUNT

What each team needs to do to reach the playoffs: Dunbar (Class 1A South): The Poets are in as their 7-2 record is good enough to be the best in their division. A win over Patterson would help Dunbar earn a better seed. Patterson (Class 3A North): If the Clippers beat Dunbar, thereís a good chance theyíre in the playoffs. A loss and theyíre out. Needless to say, Patterson’s in a mustwin situation this week. Digital Harbor (Class 3A North): Digital Harbor needs a win over EdmondsonWestside and some help from Dunbar. If the Rams win and Patterson loses, they’re in. If both Digital Harbor and Patterson win, there’s an outside shot the Rams can still get in, but only if Aberdeen loses to undefeated Fallston.

THE BALTIMORE GUIDE 13

Patterson Clippers no match for a fast-moving Red Storm BY JASON BUTT SPORTS@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Patterson wishes it could have the last five minutes of the first half against Edmondson-Westside back. In those crucial five minutes, the Clippers surrendered 20 points to the Red Storm, which ultimately hung on to a 3422 win over Patterson. “It’s tough, working hard all week and

then coming out here and getting the loss,” senior running back Derwin Beasley said. “We should have won the game. There are things we could have done differently to win the game. It’s all about focus and listening to what Coach says.” With 4:44 remaining in the first half, Edmondson quarterback Tyjuan Eaton threw a 19-yard touchdown to Devon Graham. The Red Storm converted the

14 THE BALTIMORE GUIDE

BIRDS HOUSE: BY ANDY MINDZAK

Even though the Baltimore Orioles were nowhere near the World Series this year, there is still much to be learned from the 2011 champion St. Louis Cardinals. For starters, it all begins up top in the front office. Walt Jocketty was the GM in St. Louis from October 1994 until October 2007, and he put together quite a team. Under his watch, the Cardinals won six National League Central titles and won two National League pennants and won the 2006 World Series. Some of those players are on the team still. The Cardinals replaced Jocketty with John Mozeliak in October 2007, and he has continued their winning ways. Some of his draft picks have yet to flourish, but he made some great moves for key role-players that paid off in the Cardinals’ amazing run in 2011. Take a look at the lineup. Players like Albert Pujols, Yadier Molina, Allen Craig, and Jon Jay were home grown players who came up through the Cardinals’ organization. If you look at their pitching staff, one of their starters, Jaime Garcia, was a home grown player. In his two World Series starts, Garcia pitched ten innings with an ERA of 1.80. St. Louis closer Jason Motte was another player who came up through the Cards’

D.J.

farm system. Other pitchers like Edwin Jackson, Marc Rzepczynski, and Octavio Dotel came over in smart trades. Free agency was the other source of the Cardinals’ success. Mozeliak signed Lance Berkman, who had a huge World Series as he hit .423 and led the team with 11 hits. Mozeliak also signed Rafael Furcal, Nick Punto and Kyle Lohse. Jocketty signed their ace Chris Carpenter back in 2002. If you’re wondering about the NLCS and World Series MVP David Freese, he was one of Mozeliak’s first moves back in December 2007 as the Cards traded fan favorite Jim Edmonds to the San Diego Padres for Freese. Oh, and one other thing… the Cardinals 2011 payroll was just over $109 million. What can the Baltimore Orioles learn from this? First off, they need better scouting and development. Garcia, Jay, and Freese were second-year players, yet they all jumped right in and got the job done. Baltimore’s second year players like Brian Matusz, who was supposed to be the ace of the staff, regressed in his second year (I still blame Mark Connor for that). Jake Arrieta pitched well before getting hurt, so I’m hopeful he will come back strong in 2012. Another area of improvement can be

smarter spending. $8 million for Vladimir Guerrero? Really? A 36-year-old designated hitter for $8 million? They need to improve on that. The Orioles’ payroll in 2011 was just over $86 million, so with the departure of a few free agents, they will have some money to spend, and they can get some value if they look for it and not just a famous name to go on the back of a jersey. Trading for J.J. Hardy was a great move, as was trading for Mark Reynolds. Trades seem to be an area of expertise for Baltimore, so if they can keep up with that and work on

their free agent signings, they can put together a decent squad. We all know competing in the AL East is brutal. Baltimore doesn’t spend like the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox, so they have to make sure their scouting and front office are top- notch and develop the talent from within, something they have not done in quite some time. On the other hand, look where the Red Sox’ $160,257,476 payroll put them this season: in their mansions watching the playoffs on plasma, same as the bargain-basement Orioles. Money isn’t everything.

back Craig Oliver for the second consecutive week due to wrist and shoulder injuries. Wide receiver Pete Carter moved to quarterback to take over for Oliver. Johnson said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful but unsure if Oliver will be available for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season ďŹ nale against Dunbar. Carter ďŹ nished the game completing seven of 31 passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns. The Clippers were forced to throw once Edmondson jumped to its lead and began keying on the run. Johnson said the Clippers spent last week at practice spreading the ďŹ eld out in ďŹ ve-receiver sets, but that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t execute as well as they could have against the Red Storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to make some more plays offensively,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. On Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst drive of the game, the Clippers moved the ball successfully down the ďŹ eld. Carter capped the drive with a 17-yard touchdown pass to receiver Anthony Dandridge. Down 20-6 in the third quarter, Patterson got back in the game with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Carter to receiver Nyme Manns. Beasley caught the 2-point conversion pass to cut Edmondsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 20-14. But the Red Storm answered on their next drive as Everette ran in another touchdown, this time from three yards out. A 2-point conversion gave Edmond-

son a 28-14 lead. Once again Patterson fought back. After recovering a fumble at Edmondsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25 yard line, Carter ran the ball 24 yards down to the 1. Beasley punched in a 1-yard touchdown and caught the following 2-point conversion to trim Edmondsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 28-22 with 4:19 remaining in the fourth quarter. Patterson wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done yet. On an Edmondson third down following Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score, sophomore Dreshon Jones blitzed Eaton, who dropped back to pass, and forced a fumble. A scrum followed with Patterson coming up with the ball at the bottom of a large pile. But ofďŹ cials ultimately ruled a Red Storm player was the ďŹ rst one to pounce on the ball. Instead of Patterson starting with the ball in Edmonson territory, the Clippers received a punt and started from their own 30. After two incompletions, Carter threw an interception to Edmondson linebacker Eric Tate, who returned it for a touchdown, sealing the game for the Red Storm. On the ground, Carter led the way with 120 yards on eight carries. Beasley picked up 42 rushing yards on 12 carries. The loss to Edmondson gave the Clippers three losses in the regular season for the ďŹ rst time since 2008. If the Clippers want to make the playoffs then they have to beat rival Dunbar this Friday. The Clippers have won the last two meetings against Dunbar, though John-

If we want to have any playoff aspirations we have to win that game.â&#x20AC;?
