Brady Anderson was in the lobby of the Hilton Anatole when another former player came up to him and congratulated him on his new gig with the Orioles. And what's that gig? Well Brady's not really saying. He's going to wait for the club to speak to that. For the past two years, Anderson, one of the most popular players in club history, has helped out his old team in an unspecified role. He's worked with players to improve their conditioning and at one point spent a chunk of time in Norfolk attempting to get Nolan Reimold out of his 2010 funk.

Three key members of the 1997 Orioles, the last team in club history to reach the American League Championship Series, gathered amidst the bustle of this year's pennant series to reflect on the last great era of the franchise and give their thoughts on the one currently blossoming. Former Orioles players Cal Ripken Jr., Mike Bordick, and Brady Anderson swapped stories of their successes in the mid-1990s, reflected on where the franchise went after those boom years, and savored the fact that the roar has finally returned.

Leading off the second inning, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis sent Yankees starter Hideki Kuroda's 2-1 pitch into the left field seats for his major league-leading 31st home run this season. Davis broke former Orioles outfielder Brady Anderson's record for home runs in the first half of the season. Anderson hit 30 in the first half of the 1996 season on his way to an Orioles record 50. After Sunday night, there are still 13 games until the All-Star break for Davis to extend the record.

Brady Anderson is carving a small block of time out of his packed training schedule to demonstrate the true purpose of the athletic life, which is not about money or women or fame or even fun. It's about beating you. The field of play - in this case - is a pingpong table in the middle of the Orioles' spring clubhouse at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex, where the team is preparing - with Anderson's help - for the 2012 baseball season. But it could just as well be a tennis court or a flag football field or the running track.

No one will argue that the Orioles' offense could use a bit of a boost. Whether two men who joined them Thursday in batting practice could provide it is a different conversation entirely. Former Orioles Harold Reynolds and Brady Anderson were in full uniform yesterday before the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Houston, with Reynolds taking his hacks in the batting cage and trying to regain his late-80s All-Star form. Reynolds, now an MLB Network analyst, will broadcast today's Civil Rights Game in Houston.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton, whose season was slowed by nagging shoulder soreness last year, turned to club special assistant Brady Anderson this offseason to regain strength -- and confidence -- in his arm. The 25-year-old Britton believes that will be the difference in his efforts to get back into the Orioles starting rotation. Britton, who didn't pitch for the Orioles last season until mid-July because of left shoulder impingement and then struggled with his consistency once he returned to the big leagues, spent the offseason working out with Anderson in California.

The Orioles announced several changes to the front office staff Thursday, including the hiring of long-time Orioles outfielder Brady Anderson as a special assistant to executive vice president Dan Duquette. Anderson, 48, was a three-time all-star in his 15-season career as a big-league outfielder, which included 14 years with the Orioles. Anderson worked the past two years in an informal, ad hoc capacity helping with the conditioning and development of players such as Nolan Reimold and Brian Matusz.

TORONTO - Even though Ubaldo Jimenez 's first season in an Orioles uniform has been a rough one, the right-hander believes he has made strides in his last few outings. Jimenez said a slight tweak in his delivery has made his unconventional mechanics a little smoother. Instead of moving his hands completely over and behind his head while in the windup, he's raising them just in front of his head, which he said allows him to drive to the plate better and see his target more clearly.

NEW YORK -- Nelson Cruz said Wednesday that he didn't expect to hit 40 home runs before the season began, adding that staying healthy has been the key to having a career year at age 34. “No shot,” he said when asked if he thought at the beginning of the year he'd hit 40. “I was able to do that number. I didn't expect 40, the number. I think the aim for any player is to stay healthy, play as many games as he can, stay on the field. That was my main goal, to try and stay healthy, to try to put up numbers.

NEW YORK - The Orioles go into Wednesday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees still trailing the Los Angeles Angels by 2 1/2 games  -- two games in the loss column - for the top record in the American League and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Orioles have five games left to play; the Angels have four. After the Orioles were held to one hit Monday, they responded with 17 hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win . Seeing leadoff hitter Nick Markakis get four hits, including a two-run homer - his first hits since returning from taking a pitch in the right shoulder - was a good sign for the Orioles.

NEW YORK - Orioles manager Buck Showalter will meet with his staff Monday to decide the team's roster for the American League Division Series. In the meantime, he still wants to get some final looks at players before making those choices. Showalter said he's leaning toward carrying 11 pitchers in the best-of-five series, but he hadn't made that decision. He's also leaning toward starting right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

BOSTON -- Buoyed by his monster day at the plate Sunday, when he homered twice, tripled once and drove in all seven of his team's runs, Orioles slugger Nelson Cruz was named co-AL Player of the Week with the Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. Cruz batted .407 with four homers and a .967 slugging percentage from Sept. 1-7. “To be able to win Player of the Week, I have to have guys on and to drive them [in] and get the hits to qualify,” Cruz said. “So it means whenever my teammates were on in front, I was able to do something good.” It's his third Player of the Week honor in his career and second this season - the first coming June 2. The winners receive a watch, and Cruz said he can't find his first watch.

CHICAGO-- Nick Markakis' catch to rob a home run in Monday's 8-2 win over the Chicago White Sox received some national attention. While Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Markakis deserves that recognition, the right fielder often shuns it. Not only did Markakis rob Conor Gillaspie of a potential two-run homer Monday, but he also had a three-hit game, including a two-run home run and a pair of hits off tough left-hander Chris Sale. Markakis entered Tuesday with a 10-game hit streak and was hitting .415/.493/.615 in the month of August.

TORONTO -- Orioles first baseman Chris Davis tied Brady Anderson for the franchise home run record with his eighth-inning solo blast Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre . The milestone homer broke a second-place tie with Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, who hit 49 in his American League Triple Crown year in 1966. Davis hit No. 50 - off Blue Jays pitcher Steve Delabar - to left center field on a 2-2 changeup, giving the Orioles a 4-3 lead in a game they'd win 5-3 . Davis reached 50 in 146 games this season; Anderson appeared in 149 games when he 50 in 1996.

BOSTON - Former Orioles star and current front office executive Brady Anderson jokes that he began planning how to celebrate Chris Davis' 50th home run about three months ago after Davis hit his 30th homer of the season. "He was going to meet me at home plate and probably carry me off the field," Davis said with a smile. "At Camden [Yards], I might have," Anderson said. When Davis broke Anderson's single-season franchise home run record with his 51st in the Orioles' 3-2 win at Fenway Park on Tuesday night, Anderson was watching from the stands.

Manager Buck Showalter said he has had preliminary discussions with his coaching staff and the Orioles player development staff this week about potential call-ups when rosters expand Sept. 1. The Orioles' 40-man roster is currently full, so the club would have to clear space to add and promote any nonroster players. But one spot can be created by transferring catcher Matt Wieters to the 60-day disabled list. “There's obviously some roster issues we have to manage with the 40, but we have a couple guys we haven't even put on the 60-day disabled list yet,” Showalter said.

After Nick Markakis picked up the 1,500 hit of his career Sunday, Orioles manager Buck Showalter made an interesting statement. “I hope everybody understands what we're watching here,” Showalter said. “We talk about some of those guys through the years that were solid Orioles; you've got to mention his name, hopefully, for many years.” That last part, I think, was Showalter's subtle way of telling the front office and ownership that he wants to retain Markakis, a pending free agent at the end of the season (Markakis and the Orioles have a mutual option for 2015, but those are almost never exercised by both sides)
