It’s now less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota, Fla., but I still get a sense Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette isn’t done compiling his roster.
Really, I’m not sure there is ever a time when...

There’s no secret that the Orioles are interested in acquiring first baseman-outfielder Michael Morse from the Nationals, but they aren’t the only ones.
Now that the Nationals have re-signed first baseman Adam LaRoche to a two-year deal, the...

No, they haven't signed free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche, at least not yet, but the Orioles have signed on to sponsor the annual New Year's Eve celebration at the Inner Harbor, which is almost as exciting.
The giant fireworks display, which was...

That the Boston Red Sox are talking to free-agent outfielder Adam LaRoche, which was reported Wednesday, isn't exactly new. The Red Sox were among a handful of teams — the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays also on that list —...

Tonight at 11:59 p.m. is the deadline for the Orioles to tender contracts to their 14 players that are arbitration eligible.
What that means in simpler, non-baseball language is that the Orioles have 14 players who are under team control, but have...

Good morning from Nashville.
No, the Orioles haven’t traded for Billy Butler or signed Adam LaRoche yet.
Hold your breath and you may turn Ravens’ purple.

Dan Haren, one of baseball's best right-handed starting pitchers for a half-decade, needed to choose this winter where to continue his career. He used a rationale that, while sound, for generations would have constituted pure fantasy. Haren came to...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Orioles and outfielder Nate McLouth, one of their key stretch run players from last year’s playoff season, agreed to a one-year deal Wednesday, essentially shutting the door on acquiring more major league outfielders,...

If you would have asked me in May if there were any chance of Mark Reynolds returning to the Orioles in 2013, it would have been a short conversation.
