VIERA, Fla. (AP) — The Washington Nationals traded hot-tempered outfielder Nyjer Morgan to the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday for minor league infielder Cutter Dykstra and cash. Dykstra is the son of former major leaguer Lenny Dykstra. The trade came two days after Milwaukee sent outfielder Chris Dickerson to the New York Yankees for pitcher Sergio Mitre. Morgan stole 34 bases last year during a season in which he drew a pair of weeklong suspensions from Major League Baseball.

Mark Reynolds is taking his big swings to Baltimore. The Orioles acquired the strikeout-prone slugger from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday for right-handed relievers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio in a trade between last-place teams trying to upgrade in different ways. “We needed to improve our offense,” Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said. “We think Mark Reynolds very much represents that.” There is no doubt that Reynolds can hit the ball a long way — when he hits it, that is. Reynolds has averaged nearly 35 homers for the last three years.

In the last 20 years, U.S. politicians who wanted to demonstrate that they were serious about economic development put together trade missions to Japan, sometimes opening trade offices in that Asian nation as well. But those efforts often met with mixed success, for reasons that weren't always clear at the time. That wasn't true of West Virginia, which has brought in 13 Japanese-owned companies and a university, in large part due to the efforts of U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.

NEW YORK (AP) - Commissioner Bud Selig gave his blessing Monday to a trade that will send Randy Johnson to the Yankees, making a contract extension the last major obstacle to be resolved in the drawn-out Arizona-New York swap. New York was given a 72-hour window to come to terms with the five-time Cy Young Award winner. Johnson's current deal pays him $16 million in 2005 and expires after this season. The Diamondbacks would receive pitchers Javier Vazquez and Brad Halsey, young catcher Dioner Navarro and $9 million to be paid over three years.

Michelle Ross said she took her three young children to see a piece of history at City Park on Monday. Although Ross' twin daughters, Alivia and Lauren, are only 3, and her son, George, is just a toddler, she said she wanted them to see the Sept. 11 memorial to teach them early on about the importance of that fateful day. “Girls, do you see this?” Ross asked her daughters. “This came all the way from New York.” “It's perfect,” Alivia said.

The Washington Redskins have selected guard Josh LeRibeus of SMU in the third round of the NFL draft. LeRibeus was chosen with the No. 71 overall pick Friday. The Redskins originally held the 69th selection, but they moved down two spots and picked up a seventh-round choice in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. LeRibeus is the second player taken by the Redskins in the draft. They chose quarterback Robert Griffin III in the first round on Thursday. Washington didn't have a selection in the second round, having traded that pick to the St. Louis Rams in the deal that allowed them to move into position to take Griffin.

A cover was pulled off the brown, fire-scarred steel I beam and, for a few moments, there was silence as cameras clicked to capture the image. Then an applause erupted and more camera flashes went off as daylight started to give way to darkness. Hagerstown now has a piece of New York City's World Trade Center, which was reduced to ruin in the terrorist attacks 10 years ago. The section of beam, about 5 feet tall and bolted to the ground, was unveiled Tuesday night in a Remembrance In the Park ceremony in City Park in Hagerstown.

West Virginia acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Wednesday that he has spoken with Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley about illegal drug activity crossing state lines and suggested the two governors could work more closely to tackle Baltimore’s heroin trade. “Perhaps it’s something that we could work on together ... even though he’s the governor, not the mayor (of Baltimore), still I think those discussions probably need to happen ... and hopefully can influence some change over there, which could possibly help us here,” Tomblin said in a roundtable discussion with local law-enforcement and community leaders at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
