    McLouth and Feldman aren't irreplaceable, but Orioles still need plan to replace them
    I received plenty of feedback on Twitter — and, you can imagine, most of it wasn’t positive — regarding my story that the Orioles did not make official offers to either outfielder Nate McLouth or right-hander Scott Feldman before both...

    Roberts hits grand slam and Johnson closes out Orioles' win over A's
    Given the rallies and momentum swings in the Orioles' series opener against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night, it became a game the Orioles needed to win to not only gain ground in the playoff chase but also boost the team's psyche. The biggest...
  • Orioles notes and observations (Blowout loss, Chen, Betemit)

    Orioles notes and observations (Blowout loss, Chen, Betemit)
    One of the pratfalls you have to overcome as a baseball beat writer is being hyperbolic when describing the now. You have to be careful about saying something is the best or worst of the season because it just happened. It’s human nature to say...
  • Orioles bullpen blows late lead in 4-3 loss to Red Sox

    Orioles bullpen blows late lead in 4-3 loss to Red Sox
    BOSTON — After being throttled by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Tuesday night, several Orioles said they believed a one-run loss was more painful than an 11-run blowout. Now, they have an easy, comparative study. Taking a two-run lead into...

    Orioles acquire Michael Morse in deal with Mariners
    In an 11th-hour move aimed at bolstering their lineup for the stretch run, the Orioles acquired power-hitting outfielder Michael Morse from the Seattle Mariners on Friday afternoon in exchange for minor league outfielder Xavier Avery. Morse adds a much...
  • Hammel activated; Britton to Aberdeen; S. Johnson called up; Teagarden clears; Thames claimed

    Hammel activated; Britton to Aberdeen; S. Johnson called up; Teagarden clears; Thames claimed
    Lots of little news with the Orioles today. Jason Hammel, who has been on the disabled list since July 31 with a flexor mass strain in his right forearm, was activated but likely won’t pitch before Saturday, unless he is needed in an emergency...
  • Orioles send Zach Britton to Aberdeen after his rough start in Cleveland

    Orioles send Zach Britton to Aberdeen after his rough start in Cleveland
    After lasting just 2 1/3 innings Wednesday in his first big league start since July, lefty Zach Britton's next appearance seemed tenuous. It's now expected to happen within the next week — for the short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds....
  • Orioles load the bases in the ninth but lose 4-2 to the White Sox

    Orioles load the bases in the ninth but lose 4-2 to the White Sox
    After the Orioles again failed to take advantage of ample opportunities to score in their 4-2 loss Sunday to the reeling Chicago White Sox, there was a strange vibe in the home clubhouse. Yes, the Orioles (76-66) had won three of four against the White...

    Bud Norris will resume throwing Sunday and could rejoin rotation in Tampa
    TORONTO — Orioles right-hander Bud Norris, who has been shelved since Wednesday with lingering stiffness in his elbow, will resume throwing Sunday in hopes of returning to the starting rotation next week. If everything goes well Sunday –...
  • Possibility of Orioles using Tommy Hunter at closer looking more likely each day

    Possibility of Orioles using Tommy Hunter at closer looking more likely each day
    Don’t expect the Orioles to resolve their closer situation any time soon. As the club tries to distance itself from the mess the situation with Grant Balfour created, the Orioles' external search still seems to be focused on free-agent right-...
  • Dan Duquette feels the Orioles have the means for a trade, if the price is right

    Dan Duquette feels the Orioles have the means for a trade, if the price is right
    For the better part of this month, the Orioles have stayed under the national radar in their pursuit of roster improvement for the second half. They made pre-emptive strikes, adding starting pitcher Scott Feldman and reliever Francisco Rodriguez while...
