The Orioles' search for a new pitching coach brought them a number of impressive, experienced candidates. But when the Orioles decided on who would replace Rick Adair, they turned to Braves minor league pitching coordinator Dave Wallace, who has a strong reputation of developing arms at the major league level. Wallace, 66, has a decade of experience as a major league pitching coach, including two years on World Series teams and one championship (2004 Boston Red Sox). "Dave Wallace is a successful veteran pitching coach," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said.

Corny and comfortable; A memorable placeTwenty-three hours and 1,100 miles after leaving Baltimore in our overloaded minivan, en route to Colorado, we are somewhere in the middle of an Iowa cornfield. The name of the town is not important; no matter where you are in Iowa, you are in the middle, or on the edge, of a cornfield. We pass two roadside cafes: the Cornstalk Restaurant and the Feed Lot. The town's single police car has a bumper sticker noting that it is fueled by ethanol, a fuel made of -- what else?

THE BRITISH let Johnny "Mad Dog" Adair out of prison with other self-styled soldiers as part of the peace in Northern Ireland. Never mind that he had murdered dozens of Catholics and been convicted of directing terrorism. This was part of the deal that restarted legitimate politics amid a cease-fire by both republican (Catholic) and loyalist (Protestant) paramilitaries. Freedom, to Mad Dog, meant freedom to parade for two months up and down his Shankill Road turf in West Belfast in a bulletproof vest, and reassert the reign of his group, the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF)

The Orioles made the obvious official this afternoon - announcing that pitching coach Rick Adair will not be returning in 2014.

He is very sharp,” Showalter said.

Rick Adair, who took a leave of absence as the Orioles pitching coach on Aug. 15, will not return to the club next season, according to an industry source. The club will conduct interviews next week and would like to have a decision made by the end of the month. Bill Castro, the Orioles' bullpen coach who took over for Adair in August, will be in the mix, the source said. However, given that the Orioles are conducting interviews, it's more likely the club will hire from outside the organization.  A new hire would be the fifth Orioles' pitching coach during manager Buck Showalter's regime.

Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 0.92 ERA in three starts at Tropicana Field. “Miguel has done well in this venue,” Showalter said.

Orioles minor leaguer Travis Adair, brought up to travel with the team on its Grapefruit League opener against the Rays, is OK after he was hit by a batted ball in the side head during batting practice. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Adair, the son of Orioles pitching coach Rick Adair, was behind a batting practice screen near second base when he was hit on back left side of his head. "He got a little cut there too," Showalter said. He initially received treatment in the visiting clubhouse of Charlotte Sports Park, but was taken to a local hospital to have a precautionary CT scan.

SARASOTA, Fla. – To the uninitiated, the process of elimination that will turn a group of 29 pitchers of all shapes and sizes into the Orioles' 12-man regular season pitching staff probably seems simple enough. The guys who stay healthy and pitch the best during the Grapefruit League exhibition season — which starts with a pair of split-squad games on Monday — figure to go north for the regular season opener on April 6. If only it were really that easy, it would just be a matter of constructing an innings chart and turning the pitchers loose to sink or swim over the next four weeks.
