PLAYERS: Adam Jones
TEAMS: Baltimore Orioles

Deion Sanders was in town on Wednesday for Thursday's Browns-Ravens game in Baltimore so he decided to suit up for the Orioles and participate in batting practice prior to the teams game, reports

Prime Time wore No. 21 and suited up next to Adam Jones in the locker room.

Sanders, 45, hit several balls deep into the outfield and gave the Orioles some advice, saying:

“Stay focused, man. Stay focused. They've got what it takes. They've got the pitching, the hitting, the fielding. They''re very intelligent."

“They've got what it takes. They've just got to stay focused and play every game as if it's a playoff game."

Thoughts on the Doubleheader; Jays and Orioles Split

With a week-and-a-half left in the 2012 regular season, the Orioles – who have the first wild card spot in hand for the time being – can ill-afford to lose games. As we all know, the Toronto Blue Jays are playing out the string and are a last place team in the division; therefore, the Orioles need to beat them when possible. The two teams split the doubleheader on Monday night...

Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2

Thome still trying for World Series title

So, did you hear the one about the future Hall of Famer who started the season with a supposed contender, got traded to a shocking upstart, missed almost two months with a neck injury and then returned to play a hero's role in a pennant race? That's Jim Thome. "It's something that I really try not to analyze too much," the Orioles' designated hitter was...

O's bash 7 homers in rout of Jays

Orioles Split Series With Jays; Win 89th Game...

After losing three out of their last four games, the Orioles needed a win in the worst way in game 156 of the season. With a Yankees win earlier in the afternoon, and the Rays, Angels along with the Athletics having won as well on Wednesday, another loss to Toronto would have added more angst to those in Birdland. However, the Orioles got their swagger back as they went all-homer...

1-3 stretch is Orioles' worst spell since late July

It's still too early to lock the Orioles into or out of any playoff positions, but the last few days, the club has headed in the wrong direction. After a 4-0 defeat to Toronto on Tuesday, the Orioles have lost three of four games. The last time they hit such a rough stretch was July 23-28, when they dropped five of six. Fortunately for Baltimore, the AL East-leading New York...

The race tightens

O’s tie franchise record for HR in a game

Now that’s how you get the bats out! After I spent yesterday lamenting the lack of offense that had engulfed the Birds over the past four games, they broke out in a big way in their final contest with the Blue Jays of 2012. Though it looked to be another case of a struggling starting pitcher getting the better of them, as Carlos Villanueva allowed only one run on two hits –...

Red Sox Hoping To Play Spoiler In Baltimore

By The Baltimore Orioles are so close, they can taste it. They haven’t been in the postseason for a while but they appear to be in good shape to end that drought.

Playing the role of spoiler will be the Boston Red Sox, who could really use a decent finish to head into the offseason...
