For some fans, it's not enough in this memorable, extended Orioles' season to merely watch the games. They yearn to preserve the all-too-fleeting moments - to touch them - by buying pieces of the season. They want to own the one-of-a-kind lineup cards that manager Buck Showalter displayed in the dugout during the American League Division Series and in the championship series that continues tonight against the Royals in Kansas City. Monday's game was rained out in the best-of-seven series, in which the Orioles trail, 2-0. Fans want to own the ball J.J. Hardy hit for a home run in the division series sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

The San Francisco Giants made sure this announcement arrived with little drama. The Orioles will play Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards at 12:07 p.m. on Friday, less than 19 hours after they are scheduled to begin Game 1 at 5:37 p.m. on Thursday. The Birds earned the earlier timeslot -- 3:07 p.m. was also an option -- because the Giants defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 8-0 , on Wednesday night in the National League Wild Card Game.

Miguel Gonzalez, who has been on the disabled list since May 9 (retroactive to May 4) with a blister on his right thumb, will start against the Yankees on Tuesday. He said it's been difficult to not be able to pitch in a game while not really being injured. “I've been telling the guys that it is frustrating not to be out there because of a blister,” said Gonzalez, who is 2-2 with a 4.58 ERA in six starts this season. “And it's not an injury or anything like that. You just have to sit down and wait for it to heal.” Since he threw 80-plus pitches in a simulated game Friday and the blister appears to be healed, Gonzalez said he believes he'll be able to pitch as long as he is needed on Tuesday.

DETROIT - After his team completed a tense, 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday to advance to the American League Championship Series, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was congratulated at the beginning of his postgame news conference for winning his first playoff series as a manager. “Really? I got one in Albany,” Showalter quipped, referring to an Eastern League crown in 1989. When the reporter specified he was talking about the majors, Showalter replied: “They're all relevant.” Fair enough.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.

In considering his American League Division Series roster, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said this weekend in Toronto that his biggest decision was whether he would carry 10 or 11 pitchers in the best-of-five series against the Detroit Tigers. He decided on the latter and opted to make that 11th pitcher right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez . To call Jimenez's first season in Baltimore inconsistent might be kind. He's been on a roller coaster that included a second-half demotion to the bullpen.

Breaking down the American League Division Series matchup between the Orioles and Tigers, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards: How they got here Tigers: They had to scratch and claw to win their fourth straight American League Central title. The Tigers were 90-72 this season and didn't secure the division until they won Sunday. They may have the most formidable rotation in baseball, with the last three AL Cy Young Award winners. Their offense isn't shabby either, with the specter of two-time reigning AL Most Valuable Player Miguel Cabrera always looming.

Perhaps the offensive statistic that best sums up how bad the Orioles' hitting has been this month is this: from April to August, the Orioles averaged 4.72 runs per game. In 21 games in September, they have scored 3.71 runs per game. Somehow, somewhere they have lost a full run per game. Want to speculate where it has gone? How about here? In the previous five months, the Orioles have had just one month in which they hit fewer than 32 homers. That was July, when they had 27 homers in 25 games.

An announced sellout crowd formed a sea of orange throughout the seating bowl of Camden Yards -- waving orange rally towels that said “Welcome to October” -- ready for the return of postseason baseball to Baltimore. After nearly two weeks of essentially meaningless games since wrapping up the American League East title, the switch suddenly turned onto the bright playoff stage. The Orioles aren't content with just being in the postseason. They're aiming for the franchise's first World Series title in more than three decades.
