CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE: In Baltimore, Kevin Cowherd wrote while the Orioles' signing of DH Vladimir Guerrero has team Owner Peter Angelos' "fingerprints all over it, give Andy MacPhail credit, too." The Orioles President of Baseball Operations was "under the gun going into this offseason." Cowherd: "Attendance figures at Camden Yards were plummeting. The fans were in near-rebellion. MacPhail knew he needed to do something drastic." While he "didn't blow up the team," he "damn sure changed it dramatically with trades and free-agent signings" (Baltimore SUN, 2/7).
HOOP DREAMS: Louisville-based attorney J. Bruce Miller Sunday said that he will meet with NBA Commissioner David Stern on Thursday in N.Y. to "update him on efforts to bring an NBA franchise to Louisville." Miller on Friday said that he "had obtained a 'no-shopping' agreement from an ownership interest looking to obtain a franchise and bring it to Louisville." He noted that the agreement is a "commitment from the ownership group that it wouldn’t look at other cities." Still, Miller Sunday stressed there is a "way to go" in the process (COURIER-JOURNAL.com, 2/7).
