My guess is I am averaging about five questions a day for the past two weeks on the Orioles' pursuit of left-handed pitcher Joe Saunders. Pretty incredible considering when the Orioles dealt reliever Matt Lindstrom to Arizona for Saunders last August, the...

It’s now less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota, Fla., but I still get a sense Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette isn’t done compiling his roster.
Really, I’m not sure there is ever a time when...

Buck Showalter knows it's a good problem to have.
Biding time alone in his clubhouse office the past two months, the Orioles manager would look at the board wall that lists every player in the organization. In building for 2013 — and building...

Heading into a new year, the Orioles have much of the same team as they did in 2012.

Joe Saunders’ offseason has been spent golfing, working out, entertaining at his Arizona home and being a father to his 2-year-old and 4-year-old girls.
