O's add bench depth by promoting Paredes
Baltimore recalled infielder Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday as the corresponding move for Kevin Gausman having been optioned to the Gulf Coast League Orioles after Wednesday's game.

THE GUN
By Brujo Blanco

A suburban neighborhood of New York City has published a list of gun owners in that community. This information was put on an interactive map for all to see. One of the comments put regarding this was now the criminals have a map disclosing who does not have guns in the house. The anti-gunners have provided a hit list for criminals.

When I read about these things I wonder what these people are trying to accomplish. One thing I would like to emphasize these anti gun people have a right to collect public information and publish it. That being said they are apparently trying to demonize people who have firearms. Perhaps they thought that they would make a targets out of the evil gun people.

There is an old saying and that is “If guns are outlawed only criminals will have guns.” This has become a truism in light of the gun confiscations in Australia and the UK. Criminals by definition break the law. We may end up having a situation where criminals are encouraged to use guns when the law abiding have no guns. The murder rate in Australia spiked when the guns were taken. Also, they had to come up with new laws to cover armed home invasions.

It has always interested me that when they talk about taking guns they want to take guns away from people who do not use guns for criminal activity while constructively ignoring the people who use guns for crime. If guns are taken can you imagine the value of a firearm on the black market?

I remember there was an article about the firearms tun in in the UK when a Member of Parliament lamented that he had no idea that the criminals would not turn in their firearms. He apparently was not paying attention to all sides of the issue. This comment was made when they realized that there were 3 million illegal guns on the street possessed by criminal elements. In the UK and other places the Islamic wackos I believe will support the gun turn in. This could seriously result in an armed Islamic military force within many countries that have a rapidly growing Muslim population. The head Imam in the UK has stated that they will do what they have to do to seize the UK from the non-believers to include killing them.

Islamic terrorists will not turn in their firearms and other criminals will follow suite.

I was listening to a politician who claimed that he is a gun owner and believes that something has to be done about all the guns. He also mentioned that he likes to hunt with his guns. Well, what a guy! He likes to hunt with his guns. The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is a right to keep and bear arms period. The real underlying reasoning for the 2nd Amendment is that people not only have a right to defend themselves they have a duty to defend themselves.

49ers LB Smith suspended 9 games (The SportsXchange)
The NFL suspended San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith for the first nine games of the season for violating the league's substance-abuse and personal-conduct policies. Smith, 24, will be eligible to return to the 49ers' active roster on Nov. 10 following the team's Nov. 9 game against New Orleans. "Our organization has known this decision would come and we have prepared for it," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. Smith will lose $1.24 million of his $2.34 million salary, ESPN.com reported.

Ravens make five cuts (The SportsXchange)
The Baltimore Ravens waived five players Friday as they continue to cut their roster to 53 by Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline.

Thursday's Sports In Brief (The Associated Press)
Good as she is, even Serena Williams can find it tough to deal with swirling wind, so much so that she double-faulted three times in her first service game against 81st-ranked American Vania King. While buzz around the tournament grounds built all day waiting for 15-year-old CiCi Bellis to play her second-round match at night - she wound up losing - Williams ran her U.S. Open winning streak to 16 matches as she tries to become the first woman to win three consecutive titles at Flushing Meadows since Chris Evert took four in a row from 1975-78. Two past major champions, No. 8 Ana Ivanovic and No. 24 Sam Stosur, lost, as did No. 23 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and No. 27 Madison Keys, bringing the total to 11 seeded women gone after only two rounds.

Ravens run over Saints 22-13 (The Associated Press)
To Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, finishing the preseason perfect mattered. Harbaugh rested his regulars and watched with delight as Ray Rice's backups ground out 214 yards rushing in a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Kicker Justin Tucker was among the few Ravens regulars who did not get the night off for the final exhibition game, and his performance was also one of the reasons the Ravens closed out their four-game exhibition slate without a loss. ''The thing that I love about these four preseason games is that guys work so hard,'' Harbaugh said.

Game roundup: Manziel solid in Browns' victory (The SportsXchange)
Brian Hoyer looked sharp and rookie Johnnie Manziel connected for a touchdown as the Cleveland Browns rolled past the Chicago Bears 33-13 on Thursday night at First Energy Stadium. Hoyer went 6-for-8 and looked confident as he drove the Browns to a first-quarter score. In the second quarter, he led the Browns on a five-play 80-yard drive, which was capped by a one-yard TD pass to Jim Dray. His Arizona counterpart, Chandler Catanzaro kicked three field goals.

Public shaming of NFL commish Roger Goodell shows power, pitfalls of social media (Yahoo Sports)
All sports bosses are now held accountable by the public (including athletes on social media) in an unprecedented way. Commissioners are expected to be transparent in a refreshing way. But that transparency has its risks.

NFL roundup: Goodell toughens stance on domestic violence (The SportsXchange)
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced a dramatic new domestic violence policy for the league Thursday, admitting "I didn't get it right" with Ray Rice. The measures were announced in a letter to all team owners and come after widespread criticism and a social media firestorm that Goodell absorbed following his handling of discipline for the Baltimore Ravens running back. A first offense under the new domestic violence policy calls for a six-game suspension, while a second offense would result in a lifetime ban. The two-game suspension for Rice left many with the impression that the NFL did not take domestic violence seriously as a crime.

NFL, under public pressure, toughens domestic violence bans (Reuters)
By Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The National Football League, stung by a public uproar from critics who said it was too lenient on a player accused of assaulting his fiancée, on Thursday announced stricter domestic violence penalties. Players will now receive a six-game ban for a first-time violation of the league's policy and an indefinite ban for a second violation, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to team owners obtained by Reuters. Goodell did not mention Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice by name, but apologized for how the league handled his suspension. Women's and family groups blasted the NFL after it suspended Rice for only two games in July for allegedly assaulting his then-fiancee and now wife.

After Rice, NFL increases domestic violence bans (The Associated Press)
Acknowledging he ''didn't get it right'' with a two-game suspension for Ravens running back Ray Rice, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties for players accused of domestic violence, including six weeks for a first offense and at least a year for a second. In a letter sent to all 32 team owners Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press, Goodell never mentions Rice by name but makes clear references to the Baltimore player who was charged with assault after being caught on video dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator. ''My disciplinary decision led the public to question our sincerity, our commitment, and whether we understood the toll that domestic violence inflicts on so many families. The NFL suspended six players for one game each, and Rice was the second player to be suspended for two games.

Goodell apologizes, toughens domestic abuse policy (AFP)
National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties for domestic violence Thursday, including potential life bans for repeat offenders, and apologized for issuing a weak abuse penalty last month. In a letter to team owners outlining revisions to the NFL's personal conduct policy, Goodell said that violations regarding assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault involving physical force will bring a six-game ban without pay and a second offense will bring a minimum one-year ban from the NFL. The moves come after criticism of Goodell's handling of the domestic violence case involving Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

AP source: Gordon wants to play in CFL but can't (The Associated Press)
Josh Gordon can't run a deep pass route into Canada and play. The Cleveland Browns' suspended star wide receiver wanted to play in the Canadian Football League during his indefinite suspension, but CFL rules prohibit him from doing so. Gordon, whose season-long suspension by the NFL was upheld on Wednesday, asked the Browns for permission to play for the Calgary Stampeders, a person familiar with the Pro Bowler's situation told The Associated Press on Thursday. CFL spokesman Jamie Dykstra said the only way Gordon could play in the league is if he was released by the Browns and became a free agent.
