Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette spoke to reporters before Thursday's game about the trade with the Boston Red Sox to acquire left-hander Andrew Miller , as well as the nonwaiver trade deadline passing. Here is what he said: On Miller: "We were looking to add some depth to our pitching, and the acquisition of Miller gives us a left-handed pitcher that can dominate left-handed hitters. This year, he's been highly effective against righties, as well. And looking at the market, we had good depth to our starting pitching, and we thought if we're going to make a real impact acquisition, that this would be the players we would get.” More on Miller: “Miller's emergence this year being able to get out right-handers along with lefties made him very attractive.

An article that I wrote for Tuesday's newspaper is about reliever Andrew Miller, who has been absolutely filthy in the playoffs after pitching exceptionally well since the Orioles acquired him for left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. In one sense, it will be difficult to analyze the effectiveness of the trade until we see what Rodriguez does in the major leagues. Plus, it's possible that Miller is simply a rental player, will leave as a free agent this winter, and the Orioles will only get two months and a postseason from the big left-hander.

After the Orioles added left-hander Andrew Miller from the Boston Red Sox shortly before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline, it brought predictably positive reactions from the home clubhouse at Camden Yards. And for good reason. Orioles hitters have routinely struggled against their new teammate, going a combined 9-for-54 against Miller with 15 strikeouts and five walks. First baseman Chris Davis has the worst career numbers against Miller, having gone 0-for-8 with seven strikeouts.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

The Orioles' trade with the Boston Red Sox on Thursday that added left-handed reliever Andrew Miller to the bullpen was received with positive reviews in the clubhouse, both for what he does on the mound and what he won't be doing anymore. Miller, a tough setup man who can get both right-handed and left-handed hitters out, was 3-5 with a 2.34 ERA in 50 appearances for the Red Sox. The Orioles, however, don't need to see Miller's statistics to know how good he is, since he has retired them with regularity.

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.

The Orioles announced their organizational minor league player and pitcher of the year award winners Thursday. And while neither player started the season among the team's top 10 prospects, both worked their way to the doorstep of the major leagues with breakout years. First baseman Christian Walker was named the team's Brooks Robinson Player of the Year, while right-hander Tyler Wilson is the Jim Palmer Pitcher of the Year recipient. Walker, the Orioles' fourth-round selection from the University of South Carolina in 2012, hit .288/.357/.489 with 26 home runs and 96 RBIs in 139 games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season.

Even though the Orioles entered Wednesday night's game against the Reds with a 9 1/2-game lead in the American League East and had a magic number to clinch the division of 17, manager Buck Showalter said he's far from thinking about postseason strategy. “Not now,” Showalter said. “We're not there, not even in your mindset now. … Whenever it is, it's not tonight, and it won't be tomorrow night, and it won't be the next night. And it won't be the next day, either. I'll tell you what, for the next nine days, it's not a thought.” Still, Showalter will use the expanded rosters to give rest to some starters.

The Orioles added to their expanded roster Tuesday by activating left-hander T.J. McFarland and catcher Steve Clevenger from short-season Single-A Aberdeen -- they were there since Sunday for roster management reasons -- and right-hander Ryan Webb and outfielder Quintin Berry from Triple-A Norfolk. Webb had been with the Orioles all season, but he was sent down to Norfolk on Aug. 1 because the club needed to make room for newly acquired left-hander Andrew Miller. Webb was solid for the Orioles -- 3-2, 3.80 ERA in 42 games before the demotion -- but he had a minor league option remaining, making him the temporary odd man out. “It was a surprise.

Despite his obvious power and previous success, Orioles infielder Chris Davis has been struggling so much this season that it has become business as usual when pitchers challenge him. So, in the Orioles' 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, it was somewhat surprising that Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon chose to have rookie right-hander Kirby Yates (0-2) intentionally walk Davis with two outs and a runner on second base in a tied game. Shortstop J.J. Hardy made the move backfire, dumping a bloop single into right field to score Nelson Cruz from second base for the eventual game-winner in front of an announced 16,915 at Camden Yards.

The Orioles' sweep by the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field last weekend raised all kinds of red flags. But four days back home against the Tampa Bay Rays allowed the Orioles to get back to one of the things that has carried them to the top of the American League East -- a lights-out bullpen. Relief pitchers Brad Brach , Andrew Miller, and Zach Britton combined for three scoreless innings in Thursday's 5-4 win at Camden Yards, and the bullpen completed a four-game series against the Rays without allowing an earned run in 14 1/3 innings.

CHICAGO - Sometimes when you're in the middle of the baseball season, it takes a day off to take a step back and really look at what's going on. The Orioles will open their three-game interleague series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field Friday leading the American League East by nine games over the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. They are a season-high 21 games over .500 and have the best record in baseball since June 30, going 30-13 in that span. Now take a step back to June 29, when the Orioles had just dropped three of four to the Tampa Bay Rays following a 12-7 loss at Camden Yards.

CHICAGO - The first half of the Orioles' six-game, weeklong trip to Chicago was a success in more ways than one. They beat up on the floundering Chicago White Sox, sweeping the three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field. Fate shined down on the Orioles, but that seems to happen when you're playing as well as this team's playing. On Tuesday, while the Chicago Cubs waited through a four-hour rain delay at Wrigley Field, not a drop fell on the city's South Side, even though the ballparks are less than 10 miles apart.
