The Orioles need a power hitter for the middle of their lineup. They have a vacant spot at first base, if they can get someone that's better defensively than Chris Davis. The club has tried to make a trade to bolster those spots, but they haven't been able to consummate anything yet. So, until they do, one name is going to keep coming up: free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche, who won a Gold Glove and hit 33 homers for the Washington Nationals last season. LaRoche is by far the best fit available on the open market.

That the Boston Red Sox are talking to free-agent outfielder Adam LaRoche, which was reported Wednesday, isn't exactly new. The Red Sox were among a handful of teams - the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays also on that list - that had contact with the former Washington National earlier in the winter. But that the Red Sox, presumably in more advanced discussions than before, are back in the conversation is an interesting development in the free agency of LaRoche, and for various reasons.

In an effort to improve their 2011 roster, the Orioles have added former Toronto Blue Jays right-handed reliever Jeremy Accardo on a one-year, $1.08 million deal, pending a physical, and are continuing to pursue a free-agent first baseman. Adam LaRoche, who hit 25 homers and drove in 100 runs for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010, appears to be the club's top candidate at first base, and the team is continuing to talk to his representatives. The Orioles also have spoken to representatives for former Atlanta Braves first baseman Derrek Lee. It's believed Lee, 35, is seeking a one-year deal, while LaRoche, 31, is in line for a two-year contract.

Dan Haren, one of baseball's best right-handed starting pitchers for a half-decade, needed to choose this winter where to continue his career. He used a rationale that, while sound, for generations would have constituted pure fantasy. Haren came to pitch in the nation's capital, home to so many woebegone seasons, to join a first-place powerhouse, to spray champagne and to hoist a trophy. He picked the Washington Nationals, two seasons removed from 298 losses in three years, because he saw in them the makings of a champion.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- --One year after the Great Brian Roberts Trade Veto of 2006, the Orioles' diminutive and popular second baseman is back at the center of wheeling and dealing at baseball's winter meetings. This time, the hot rumor is that he's going to the Chicago Cubs for a couple of young players, including a starting pitcher, possibly 21-year-old right-hander Sean Gallagher. This time, dealing Roberts would represent so much more than last year, when he almost was shipped to the Atlanta Braves - along with pitcher Hayden Penn for second baseman Marcus Giles and first baseman Adam LaRoche - before the deal was nixed by Orioles owner Peter Angelos.

In what has become somewhat of a tradition in the first full day of baseball's winter meetings - both for the Orioles and the league as a whole - plenty of rumors swirled around the massive hallways and lobbies of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel on Monday but little news surfaced. The first, and perhaps most interesting news conference Monday, was held by New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who announced that lightning rod third baseman Alex Rodriguez will undergo hip surgery and will miss a chunk of the 2013 season.

Brad Lidge did not expect to find himself on the mound for many ninth innings this season, certainly not on Opening Day at Wrigley Field. He signed with the Washington Nationals in late January with the understanding, despite his 223 career saves, that he would set up and provide a mentoring voice. "Give the guy a million dollars and let him look after the kids," said Lidge, 35. But there he was Thursday, capping an idyllic afternoon with save No. 224, finishing a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs filled with both unexpected twists and predictable themes.

With contract talks at an impasse, the Orioles have moved away from Adam LaRoche and renewed discussions with fellow free agent first baseman Derrek Lee, according to multiple industry sources. The development comes less than a week after the Orioles appeared to settle on LaRoche, the 31-year-old who hit .261 with 25 homers and 100 RBIs for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season, to fill their first-base vacancy. According to sources, the Orioles were negotiating almost exclusively with LaRoche's agent, Mike Milchin, last week, but the two sides have been unable to reach an agreement.

It's a fact Adam LaRoche of the Braves was a bat boy for the White Sox when his father, Dave, was the pitching coach. Milestone Pedro Martinez reached 1,500 strikeouts with the Red Sox, second in team history to Roger Clemens (2,590). The number 32: doubleheaders at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago since 1991, when it opened as new Comiskey Park.
