Orioles pick power right-hander Gausman fourth overall

It was widely assumed that the Baltimore Orioles would select a college pitcher with the fourth selection of Monday's draft. That they did. Baltimore chose right-hander Kevin Gausman, a polished sophomore from LSU, after selecting star high school right-hander Dylan Bundy in 2011. "Kevin Gausman is one of the premier power pitchers in all of college baseball,"...

Orioles 8, Red Sox 6(10)

Ronny Paulino ended a hitless night with an RBI single in the 10th inning to drive in the go-ahead run and the Baltimore Orioles hung on for an 8-6 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.

Orioles Acquire Steve Pearce from the Yankees organization; DFA Hall...

Yet another move was made by the Orioles on Saturday. They DFA'ed Bill Hall and got an older minor leaguer that seems to be doing decent in Triple-A this season, plus has some major league experience.

Former Mets, Orioles General Manager Jim Duquette Donates Kidney to 10-Year-Old Daughter

After eight years of hospital trips and dozens of medications, 10-year-old Lindsey Duquette is having a life-changing operation on Monday. The surgery will give her a new kidney and hopefully a new lease on life, freeing her up from the ravages of a disease called Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. The donor? Her father, Jim Duquette, 46, an MLB analyst and Sirius radio host who...

Orioles continue their dominance at Fenway Park

BOSTON - Apparently, there was nothing wrong with the Orioles that a visit to Fenway Park couldn't fix. That's even on a night their lights-out closer gave up a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning. The Orioles, who had lost seven of their previous eight games and had gone 1-5 on their current nine-game road trip to fall out of first place in the American League...

Returning home was the fix the Blue Rocks needed to get back to their winning ways, beating the Frederick Keys (Baltimore) 2 games Out of 3.

Talent and resolve

The Orioles have been struggling. Yes, this is true. AS I write this Jim Johnson has blown his first save of the year on a two-out two-run homer from Jarrod Saltalamachia on a semi-controversial call. Salty's long fly ball was heading for the top of the monster and it hit off the very top of the wall, above the homerun "line" giving the Red Sox the tie and sending...
