  • Catching-deep draft could help Orioles address a weakness in organization

    Catching-deep draft could help Orioles address a weakness in organization
    Because of the inherent riskiness of selecting high school and college kids often years away from playing on the big stage, baseball's annual amateur draft differs from the talent-selection process of other pro sports. In baseball, an organization's...
  • Thoughts on drafting and developing catchers

    Thoughts on drafting and developing catchers
    For Tuesday’s paper, I wrote a piece about the upcoming amateur draft and the fact there is an unusual abundance of high school catchers available this year. And I wrote about whether the Orioles would consider grabbing one in the first round even...
  • Nationals Manager Davey Johnson talks about Ouija board lineup

    Washington Nationals Manager Davey Johnson has gone somewhere that not even the Angels' Mike Scioscia or Dodgers' Don Mattingly have dared to go: the Ouija board. Before the start of an Independance Day game against the Milwaukee Brewers in Washington,...
  • Marlins nip Nationals 2-1 in 10 with late heroics

    Marlins nip Nationals 2-1 in 10 with late heroics
    The one thing Giancarlo Stanton knew for sure was Rafael Soriano was not going to throw a strike. Ahead in the count 1-2, Soriano threw a chase pitch. Stanton chased it and crushed it. With the Marlins down a run in the ninth Saturday, Stanton...
  • Andre Ethier, Dodgers start second half with 3-2 win over Nationals

    By his standards, Andre Ethier had a fairly quiet first half. Not horrific, just not up to his standards. He has willingly played every outfield position without complaint, but a .268 batting average, five home runs and 28 runs batted inĀ in the first...
  • Dodgers continue turnaround by sweeping Nationals, 9-2

    A month ago, the Dodgers were adrift. Riddled by injury, they were the season’s biggest disappointment —their lineup unproductive, their bullpen unreliable, their rotation in constant flux, their manager’s job status under scrutiny....
  • Nate McLouth talks about leaving the Orioles, joining the Washington Nationals

    Nate McLouth talks about leaving the Orioles, joining the Washington Nationals
    Nate McLouth, who spent two months of the 2012 season and all of last year with the Orioles, signed a two-year deal last week with the Washington Nationals worth a guaranteed $10.75 million with an option for a third year. McLouth will make $5 million...
  • Mayberry could be making things harder on Delmon Young

     
    If John Mayberry Jr. keeps this up, it’s going to make it harder and harder for Charlie Manuel and Ruben Amaro Jr. to dismiss him upon Delmon Young’s return, which is getting closer and closer. Mayberry, a former first-round draft......
  • Power rankings: No. 7 Phillies

    Power rankings: No. 7 Phillies
    No. 7 Phillies: 24th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Tigers. Last memory of the 2011 Phillies? That's easy. It's Ryan Howard hitting a grounder to Cardinals second baseman Nick Punto, heading disgustedly toward first base and then...
  • Expect Adam Jones' extension to be 5-6 years, $80-$90 million

    Expect Adam Jones' extension to be 5-6 years, $80-$90 million
    As speculation – and waiting – continues on what seems to be a pending contract extension for Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, here’s an educated guess on how this will shake out. Jones will sign an extension of five or six years in...
  • Rogers' rankings: No. 16 Nationals

    Rogers' rankings: No. 16 Nationals
    No. 16 Nationals: 15th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Blue Jays Bryce Harper hasn't played a day in the big leagues, and unfortunately for him there is only one way to go. It is opposite of up. But if you want to bet on Harper as...
