What a difference a year makes

This offseason Ubaldo Jimenez was one of the most sought after free agent pitchers. He had a superb year after a couple of bumpy seasons upon leaving the Rockies for Cleveland. In three starts so far this season he has been something beyond awful in Baltimore. Ricky Nolasco defined upper middle class pitching for the last six seasons, but his first two starts this season were terrible...

In the eyes of Orioles manager Buck Showalter, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen battled some tough luck in his first two starts of the season. He pitched well enough to win, his skipper said, but was victimized by seeing-eye hits that led to some early exits. After allowing nearly two hits an inning in those starts, Chen set the tone early against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night at Camden...

Nick Saban's First Pitch Was Better Than Nolan Ryan's and Jim Thome's

This time of year we tend to see a lot of celebrities and athletes from other sports get the chance to show off their baseball skills. Some might get the chance to take batting practice with a team, but for the most part they are invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Some of them end up sucking pretty bad. Some have actually thrown pretty good pitches, but most probably...

Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles series primer

This is becoming a road trip of attrition. It started with left-hander Matt Moore's elbow problem April 7 in Kansas City, one that required a visit to Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla.
