Sports tab coming in Baltimore?

The Blog's hearing reports that The Baltimore Sun plans to revamp its daily sports section as a tabloid before year's end. Rumblings about the new format suggest it would run Monday-Saturday, with the broadsheet remaining on Sunday. The plan is also said to include tighter writing, the elimination of jumps and a slight design overhaul that doesn't stray too far from The Sun's 2005 redesign.

Recent broadsheet-to-tab conversions include: Arizona's East Valley Tribune went fully tabloid today, the Los Angeles Times Opinion/Book Review slimmed down in March, and the New York Observer made the transition in February. Is 2007 shaping up to be the year of the tab?
