Price for a Beer
3/25/15: The writing is on the wall for Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. He is in the final year of his contract and the Orioles have shown no interest in signing him to an extension, so this is probably his final year with the team. He was shut down recently with elbow tendinitis, but fortunately, the test came back negative so there is no reason to think he has a ligament tear or anything very serious. Actually, that is really good news since he is coming back from Tommy John surgery. With his contract situation as it is, do not be surprised if the Orioles try to trade him during the season and simply move on.
3/18/15: Opening Day will be here soon and the Baltimore Orioles have to be considered one of the contenders to win the AL East at this point. Baltimore is defending their AL East crown, though their division rivals have bulked up as well. The Orioles may be sending left handed reliever Brian Matusz away, likely to the New York Mets. The Mets are in a bit of a pickle since they have lost both reliever Josh Edgin and starter Zach Wheeler within a week. Matusz is a converted starter, and has fared much better out of the bullpen then in the rotation. Lefty specialists are at a premium, so the Orioles may get a good deal in return.
3/11/15: The pressure is on Orioles Chis Davis this season. Two years after leading the majors in home runs, he is trying to bounce back from a season where he hit under .200 and was suspended. He needs to prove that he is not a byproduct of enhanced supplements. Even with Davis struggling or out of the lineup, the Orioles were very successful last season when they won the AL East. This season figures to be tougher as the Boston Red Sox have beefed up their entire roster and still seem like they want to trade for pitcher Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies.
3/4/15: According to a few different rating experts, the Baltimore Orioles received low grades on their offseason transactions, noting that they really did not do anything over the winter. They did not need to do much. They lapped the rest of the AL East last season and return most of their starters. In recent weeks, the Orioles signed infielder Evereth Cabrera. Cabrera is known for his PED suspension stemming from the Anthony Bosch scandal, but before that, he was a great base stealer. He is not guaranteed a spot on the roster, but if he can regain the form from just a couple of years ago then he will be a great weapon for Baltimore.
2/25/15: Score another victory for the big boys. In this case, the Baltimore Orioles won their arbitration hearing against Alejandro De Aza, so he will have to settle for a mere $5 million this season. He had the audacity to ask for $5.65 million. That extra $650,000 should allow the Orioles to pick up an extra star player or two this season and repeat as AL East champions. De Aza posted a solid .293/.341/.537 slash line last season which included three home runs and 10 RBIs in 20 games for the Orioles, after being traded by the Chicago White Sox.
2/18/15: It is one thing to get a player to a team by luring him with money. It is entirely different when the player wants to be with the club. It can be a hard sell for a smaller market team to entice top tier players. The Orioles should feel fortunate with shortstop J.J. Hardy. He is a player who wants to be in Baltimore and was able to reach a four year extension back in October. That kept him off the open market and away from potential suitors like the New York Yankees or Los Angeles Dodgers. Overall, the Orioles did not do too much this offseason, but they really did not have to. The rest of the AL East will improve this season, but Baltimore should still be competitive.
2/5/15: The Orioles signed pitcher Mark Hendricksonto a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training last week, which on its own is not a very interesting item. But Hendrickson himself is a fascinating subject. He is now 40 years old and likely to hear his teammates call him 'grandpa', and he actually is a grandfather. He also stands 6"9' and uses a sidearm delivery. He has not pitched in the majors since 2011 and did not even start his professional career in baseball. He played in the NBA from 1996-2000. So while there may not be much of a chance of him making the team, he will give broadcasters and scribes something to talk about.
1/28/15: The Baltimore Orioles have executive Dan Duquette under contract. The Toronto Blue Jays wanted him. That creates some friction. After trying to get the Orioles to bend on their employee, it seems that negotiations have broken off. Baltimore, reportedly, asked for 2014 draft pick Jeff Hoffman and two other prospects. Toronto was not willing to pay that price, so Duquette will not be the next CEO of the Blue Jays. Of course, many negotiations have been said to stall, when, in reality, there are those working behind the scenes to make it happen. So let's just call this a pause for right now.
1/14/15: Lost in all the free agent signings and trades that have taken up most of the media space that is devoted to baseball is the fact that the Toronto Blue Jays still want Dan Duquette to be their president and Duquette apparently wants to have the job. The problem is that Duquette is still employed by the Baltimore Orioles and they do not have to let him go. In the NFL, teams have to allow their management and coaching personnel go to another team if it is a promotion and higher pay grade. Not so in baseball, and the Orioles likely want some compensation for Duquette, so he may never get to Toronto.
1/7/15: Give the Orioles credit for taking advantage of the situation last season. With both the Yankees and Red Sox having down years, Baltimore ran away with the AL East, though were eliminated in the playoffs before reaching the World Series. Repeating as the AL East champs will be much harder for Baltimore than winning it in 2014. On paper, the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays all look much better than in the past season, so the competition is back in the division. The Orioles also let Nick Markakis leave for the Atlanta Braves via free agency, though that may be a good move considering the money that was involved.
10/22/14: The Baltimore Orioles became the toast of the American League and trendy pick to win the World Series. They blew out the rest of the AL East, which (of course) includes the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays. They easily took down the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS - barely letting the Tigers into any game. But they were swept by the upstart Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series (or the semi-finals for lay people). It is unfortunate for the team and the fans, but they can take heart in a great season and should be contending again come 2015.
10/14/14: The Orioles have been a strong team all season, but really came around in the second half to win the AL East walking away. After dispatching the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS, the Orioles are only four wins away from getting to the World Series. They face an uphill climb, though, as the Kansas City Royals took the first two games of the series in Baltimore. Game 3 of the series was scheduled for Monday night, but was postponed due to rain. Games 3, 4, and 5 are scheduled to be in Kansas City, but a couple of wins will bring the series back to Baltimore. Game 6 would be Friday, October 17 and Game 7 would be Saturday October 18.
Tommy Hunter kept his team in the game and helped the Baltimore Orioles earn a close 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. Hunter pitched just five innings, allowing three earned runs on eight hits and two walks. He also added two strikeouts before exiting the game with 94 pitches. Manny Machado went deep for the O's, blasting his third home run of the year after being recently called up from the Orioles farm system. Nick Markakis also went deep, while Mark Reynolds also drove in a run in the winning effort. While the team managed only six hits, they got them when they counted and picked up the win to move to 62-53 on the season.
Winners of four straight coming in, the Baltimore Orioles continued their winning streak on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners as they took a game at home by the score of 9-2. The surging O's now find themselves just 4.5 games behind the first place Yankees and seem primed to earn a playoff spot if they can keep this strong run alive. Steve Johnson earned the win for Baltimore, pitching six innings and allowing just two earned runs on five hits and two walks. He also added nine strikeouts over the course of his 97 pitches to earn his first victory of the season thus far.
Miguel Gonzalez out dueled Freddy Garcia and helped lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Monday at Yankee Stadium. Gonzalez pitched 6.2 innings, allowing four earned runs on six hits and zero walks. He also added 8 strikeouts over the course of 111 pitches to earn his third victory of the season. Offensively, Wilson Betemit blasted his 12th home run of the season in the third off Garcia, while Nick Markakis, JJ Hardy and Omar Quintanilla all also drove in runs in the wining effort. Overall, the team managed 13 hits off Yankees pitching, but were just 1-5 with runners in scoring position.
Despite a solid start from starter Wei-Yin Chen, the Baltimore Orioles dropped a close 3-1 ball game to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. Chen lasted 6.2 innings, allowing three earned runs on four hits and three walks. He also added five strikeouts on the day, despite picking up his sixth loss of the year so far. To date, his ERA remains at a solid 3.82 and he has earned eight victories for the O's. Offensively, Adam Jones blasted his 23rd home run of the year, a fourth inning shot off Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson. Overall on the day, however, the team managed just three hits off the Tampa Bay pitching staff.
The Baltimore Orioles are chasing the New York Yankees, only 2.5 games behind the division leaders, but they didn't gain any ground this week as they were swept by the New York Mets. The Orioles failed to score a single run in the series until the 8th inning of the third game on Wednesday night. They then pulled to within one run, at 4-3, and loaded the bases in the 9th inning but failed to push any more runs across the plate. The 39-30 Orioles will head into a weekend series with their National League neighbors, the Washington Nationals.
While the Yankees and Rays have been swapping positions at the top of the AL East, the Baltimore Orioles have been quietly stalking and waiting for their chance to pounce into the division lead. With a five-game winning streak of their own, including this week's sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Orioles find themselves at 37-26 and only a half game behind the division-leading Yankees. The Orioles will start a three-game interleague set against the reeling Atlanta Braves on Friday night at Turner Field, with Brian Matusz going up against the Braves' Tommy Hanson.
The 32-25 Baltimore Orioles took two out of three games from the division- rival Boston Red Sox this week and moved back into a first-place tie with the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. Their 7-0 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday night prevented them from sweeping the Sox and also snapped their seven-game winning streak in Boston. The Orioles, who are tied for first despite having a -4 run differential on the season thus far, will open a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night at home. They will send Jake Arrieta to the mound against Joe Blanton and the reeling Phillies.
The AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles have signed left-handed pitcher Jamie Moyer to a minor league contract. Moyer, 49, was released last week by the Colorado Rockies a month after becoming the oldest starting pitcher in major league history to win a game. Moyer posted a 2-5 record and a 5.70 ERA with Colorado. Moyer has been sent to AAA Norfolk, but the Orioles hope he can add depth to a major league rotation behind Jason Hammel and Wei-Yin Chen. Moyer sat out the entire 2011 season recovering from Tommy John surgery. Moyer previously pitched for the Orioles from 1993-95.
Like the Nationals, their NL counterparts who play just a few miles down I-95, the Baltimore Orioles are also in first place in their division heading into June, with a 29-22 record. Despite a hot start to the 2011 season, the Orioles soon fizzled out and fell back to the pack. However, that crash has yet to happen so far, two months into the 2012 season. The Orioles have kept pace with the Tampa Bay Rays and have managed to stay a few games ahead of the New York Yankees thanks to great pitching from Jason Hammel who is 6-2 with a 3.04 ERA and Adam Jones who leads the team with a .314 average, 16 home runs and 34 RBI.

Their 7-0 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday night prevented them from sweeping the Sox and also snapped their seven-game winning streak in Boston.

The 39-30 Orioles will head into a weekend series with their National League neighbors, the Washington Nationals.
5/31/12 - The Baltimore Orioles have signed outfielder Adam Jones to a six- year contract extention. The contract is worth $85.5 million in total and includes a no-trade clause that will keep Jones in Baltimore through 2018. Jones is having a career year batting .314 with 16 home runs and a .983 OPS. Jones' offensive numbers have improved every year he has been in Baltimore and is continuing that streak this season. Jones has been a big reason for the Orioles sitting in first place in the AL East. An All-Star in 2009, Jones is making a case to return to the Mid-Summer Classic.
5/25/12 The Baltimore Orioles have withstood quite a few tests early on in this young 2012 season and still sit atop the AL East with a 28-17 record as we inch closer to June. Led by Adam Jones with a .311 batting average, 11 home runs and 29 RBI, the Orioles have stood tough and battled against the likes of the Yankees, Rays, and Red Sox to claim their top spot in the division, but the question is whether or not they can maintain this solid play throughout the summer. The Orioles are winners of 6 of their last 10 and will head into this weekend with a three-game set against the Kansas City Royals.
5/18/12 A three-game winning streak for the Baltimore Orioles has the team at 25-14, in first place in the AL East. This surprising start for the Orioles has lasted even longer than last year's quick start, and is surprising much of the baseball world. Adam Jones is leading the charge for Baltimore with a .296 batting average, 13 HRs and 26 RBI. The Orioles are coming off of a 2-game series sweep of the Kansas City Royals, including a 4-3 win in 15 innings on Wednesday night. Baltimore will head into this weekend with a series against their cross-town NL rivals, the Washington Nationals.
The Baltimore Orioles lost the first game of a three game series against the New York Yankees on Monday by the score of 2-1. Jason Hammel gave the Orioles a strong six innings of work, allowing just 5 hits and giving up two runs to the Yankees, but he was bested by New York starter Hiroki Kuroda, who needed just 87 pitches through 7 innings of one one run ball to stop the surging O's offense. Yankees closer Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth inning to record his fifth save of the season. Brian Matusz will take the mound against Phil Hughes in game two of the series.
The Baltimore Orioles have continued their hot start to the 2012 MLB season and currently sit atop the American League East, tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the division lead. With the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays both just a game out, the team will have to continue to push if they want to hold onto that top spot. Staff ace Jason Hammel leads the squad with a microscopic 1.73 ERA through four starts and Adam Jones has been pacing the offense with a .309 batting average. The team will host the Oakland Athletics this weekend in a three game set before heading to New York to face the Yankees.
After starting off the 2012 season with an unlikely 3-0 record, the Baltimore Orioles were swept by the New York Yankees this week to bring their record to an even 3-3. After a strong start on opening day, young Jake Arrieta struggled against the Yankees, giving up 4 runs through 6 and 2/3 innings. Overall, however, his 1-0 record, 9 strikeouts and 2.63 ERA lead the young pitching staff. Offensively, the team has been led by catcher Matt Wieters, who after failing to live up to the hype last season, has begun his campaign with a .364 batting average, 2 home runs and 3 RBI's. The team will face off against the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend.

Baltimore Orioles Tickets - Season Info
It's been tough sledding for the Baltimore Orioles in recent years, but the team looks to take big steps forward in the AL East in 2011. Last season didn't begin the way the Orioles planned, but encouragement and hope came with the hiring of Buck Showalter, who managed the club to a 34-23 finish. The club will look for marked improvements from young guns Matt Wieters and Adam Jones in 2011 but solid contributions need to be made throughout the team for it to win games next season.
