The Orioles were the team of opportunity last year - and that has not changed this winter. According to a club source, this week the team worked out two ex-Orioles to see if they have anything left in the tank: lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes and infielder-outfielder Fernando Tatis. At this point, no final decision has been made on either player. The 43-year-old Rhodes, who still lives in Baltimore, worked out at Camden Yards on Thursday. Once a hard-throwing starter who made his major league debut with the Orioles in 1991 at age 21, Rhodes became a reliever full-time in 1997.

It's one of those baseball statistics that's hard to believe. I checked it a couple times to make sure I hadn't missed anyone. And I really believe I haven't. According to baseball-reference.com, there are 44 active major league pitchers who have at least 80 career wins - a modest accomplishment, but impressive considering all who have played the game. Of that group of 44, none has played for the Orioles. Think about that for a moment. I'm not talking about none of the 44 plays for the Orioles right now. I am talking about ever.

When I reported that the Orioles had held a brief workout for lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes at Camden Yards on Thursday, I received a whole lot of age jokes on my Twitter account. For once, they weren't aimed at me. Rhodes, who didn't pitch professionally in 2012 and was last seen winning a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, turned 43 in October. (That's actually slightly older than me, so take that). I think the best line I saw on Twitter was from the guy who asked me if Rhodes had developed a deer-antler spitball to get hitters out. Hey, insulting and topical.

Alberto Castillo, Orioles catcher What do you remember about your last major league home run? It was 2005 off Arthur Rhodes, a walk-off home run in Kansas City. That's a good memory of that day. A Sunday afternoon. I got a lot of phone calls because I slid into home plate. I was hiding from all my teammates who were trying to slap me on my head. I wanted to get down and try to avoid them, but they were hitting me. It was funny. Everybody was asking me, "How can you slide into home plate?"

On the field: The Orioles did not protect Vaughn Eshelman from the Rule V draft during the off-season, and the left-hander did his best to justify that decision yesterday in his start for the Red Sox. Eshelman lasted just two innings, allowing four hits, four walks and five runs.In the dugout: Red Sox manager Kevin Kennedy had designs on a low-scoring game, even when the Orioles took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Jose Canseco walked to open the second, and then third baseman Tim Naehring dropped a sacrifice bunt.

The Orioles have several options in trying to fill the fifth spot of their rotation until Ben McDonald is ready to pitch again.Rick Krivda (left-hander): He'll stay as long as he pitches well.Arthur Rhodes (L): Could go back into the rotation, although he has been solid out of the bullpen.John DeSilva (R): He won a game in June and could be promoted to pitch against a team that murders lefties.Jimmy Haynes (R): Top prospect who has pitched well in Rochester, but the Orioles would like to keep him at Triple-A.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- In the past, whenever Arthur Rhodes' situation with the Orioles has been discussed, it has always been qualified. And it always began with the same word -- "if."As in, "if Arthur Rhodes can win a spot." Or "if Arthur Rhodes can throw strikes." Or "if Arthur Rhodes learns to change speeds."The 23-year-old left-hander thinks the time has come to eliminate the word "if" from his vocabulary. "I know people are always saying 'if he can do this or that,' and I'm trying to eliminate that this spring," said Rhodes.

This is what Arthur Rhodes has always wanted. A defined role, an injury-free season and a place he enjoys playing all at once. Rhodes is a Cleveland Indian now, a lefty setup man having a resurgent season. He's years removed from his time in Baltimore, when the can't-miss prospect was a starter, long reliever and setup man. He was asked to do everything, and the results were as inconsistent as his ever-changing role. He's 35 now, a seasoned veteran. And, deep down, he wants to end his career where it started.

Juan Guzman -- UP --- Guzman looked like he'd lost it in April. Since then he has become an effective six-inning starter. His postseason pedigree while with Toronto makes him an obvious candidate to end the month elsewhere. Almost two years after shoulder surgery, Guzman resembles a dangerous strikeout pitcher once again.The Ghastly -- DOWN -- Boys If the 1990 Cincinnati Reds' relievers were the Nasty Boys, the 1999 Orioles deserve their place in history. Twenty blown saves in 82 games is the stuff of nightmares.

TORONTO -- A five-run rally and a four-hit breakout by rookie second baseman Jerry Hairston weren't enough last night to prevent the Toronto Blue Jays from taking a 6-5, 10-inning win over the Orioles.Left fielder Shannon Stewart's two-out single off Arthur Rhodes (3-3) sent the Orioles to their sixth straight loss, all to opponents ahead of them in the American League East. Coming after the Orioles had tied the game with two outs in the ninth on Jeff Conine's double, the loss included four unearned runs in a five-run first inning and a third straight traumatic outing for Rhodes, who surrendered the game-winning hit on a shot between Cal Ripken and the third base line with a runner on third.
