Hardly on the radar when last season began, Brandon Fahey was recalled from Triple-A Ottawa on April 30 when Brian Roberts went on the disabled list, and got a hit off Seattle Mariners veteran Jamie Moyer in his first at-bat. He wound up staying with the Orioles for the rest of the season, starting games at second base, shortstop, third base, left field and right field. The son of former major league catcher Bill Fahey, who played 11 seasons in the majors, Fahey, 26, hit .235 with two home runs and 23 RBIs last year.

Jeremy Guthrie says it doesn't matter, as long as the result is an Orioles victory. The Orioles right-hander is content working with a big lead and with the luxury of knowing that one mistake is not going to cost him a win. But there is something about a tense pitcher's duel that Guthrie has learned to enjoy, and he had had plenty of experience over the past three months in such situations. The Orioles, however, would prefer games like yesterday's 10-4 victory over the Texas Rangers in front of an announced holiday crowd of 21,363 at Camden Yards every time.

Brandon Fahey, Orioles infielder Does your pre-game preparation change when you know you will be starting? It's pretty much the same, because when you're not starting you still have chances to come in the game to pinch run or come in for whatever reason. You just need to try to relax and go out there and be calm and help the team win.

The Orioles reshuffled their roster yesterday and ended up with 13 pitchers again. Because of rainouts, exhausting road trips and an injury to starter Adam Loewen, the Orioles decided to bolster their staff, recalling left-handed starter Garrett Olson and right-handed reliever Bob McCrory from Triple-A Norfolk. To make room on the 25-man roster, reliever Greg Aquino (14.21 ERA in six games) was designated for assignment and infielder Brandon Fahey (.200 batting average, one RBI in 25 at-bats)

Dusty Baker is ready to stop being mad and start getting to work. The hurt of losing his job as Chicago Cubs manager lasted for quite a while, but now Baker has become an ESPN baseball analyst. "I feel great," he said in a conference call this week. "I feel recharged and renewed and I'm ready to charge into my new job." Part of that new job is answering questions from newspaper types who want to know what he thinks about the hometown team. So, Dusty, how about those Orioles? "They got power arms and pretty good offense ... but anybody that's in that division, you have to compete with the big three," Baker said Wednesday in a phone interview with The Sun, referring to the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays.

With the non-waiver trade deadline approaching and contenders looking to bolster their bullpens, Orioles reliever Chad Bradford is shaping up as an attractive trade candidate - though such a move has become less likely since closer Chris Ray went on the disabled list. Bradford, 32, has posted a 2.90 ERA and surrendered only one run in eight appearances this month. Dealt twice in his career, Bradford isn't letting the trade speculation distract him. He signed a three-year contract in November and continues to approach each day as though he'll remain with the Orioles.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley didn't have to wait for the team's first workout to get his first good piece of news this spring. Catcher Ramon Hernandez reported to Fort Lauderdale Stadium yesterday, feeling healthy and looking in considerably better shape than last season. "Right now, it's unbelievable," Hernandez said when asked how he felt. "I really concentrated this offseason on working out. "I've been taking my vitamins, and I need to help my body rebuild.

Players on a fourth-place team are careful not to puff out their chests after sweeping the club below them. They don't check the wild-card standings until reaching the .500 mark. But the Orioles will bask in every achievement, no matter how modest, and they'll imagine the possibilities that exist down the road. It beats counting the days until their vacation begins. With starting pitcher Steve Trachsel unable to continue the recent run of quality starts from the rotation, the Orioles relied on an invigorated offense and a bullpen that's no longer underachieving to run their winning streak to four games with a 10-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before an announced 22,393 at Camden Yards.

JUPITER, Fla. -- The Orioles might not have two extra weeks to decide the fate of veteran outfielder Jay Gibbons, after all. The commissioner's office and the players union are negotiating changes to Major League Baseball's drug policy in the wake of the Mitchell Report, and the result could be the rescinding of Gibbons' 15-day suspension for violating the substance-abuse prevention program. Former Sen. George Mitchell, who released a study in December on steroid use in baseball, recommended granting amnesty to all the players mentioned in the report.

The first fly ball hit to center fielder Adam Jones in the first intrasquad game turned him in the wrong direction and caused him to fall down without making the catch. Consider it his welcome-to-the-Orioles moment. It also figures to be a rare occurrence, judging by how much he has improved since that embarrassing day. Jones has made tremendous strides in the field, and not just when he is on the run. The extra time he spent with first base coach John Shelby, who works with the outfielders, definitely has appeared to pay off. "I had never seen him play before, so there wasn't really one specific thing that I was looking at. I was just watching him overall, seeing what he did well, what he didn't do well," Shelby said.
