A former police chief in Maryland was labeled as a serial arsonist by law enforcement officials on Thursday, a day after he was charged with setting a dozen fires over a span of nine years targeting his enemies. David Crawford, 69, of Ellicott City who served as police chief in the city of Laurel before resigning in 2010, was arrested on Wednesday. Investigators said they found all of the fire victims had previous disagreements with Crawford.

New York Mets president Sandy Alderson says he is emphasizing offense over defense but Kevin Pillar and Albert Almora Jr. were brought in to help with their gloves. “While some of our players aren’t defensive geniuses, we think that the overall blend that we have is pretty good," Alderson said during an interview on the ESPN telecast of Thursday’s 8-4 win over Washington in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Washington stole three bases off new Mets catcher Brian McCann, two by Víctor Robles.
