The Orioles and Montreal Expos have held preliminary discussions about a deal that would bring the Orioles center fielder Milton Bradley. The Expos, in turn, are seeking a left fielder/leadoff hitter, a definition that fits the Orioles' Delino DeShields. The Expos dispatched a scout to the Orioles' three-game series in Detroit and are believed to be ready to move on a deal given their surprising standing within the National League East. One potential hurdle to a deal would be DeShields' salary.

On Tuesday, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association named center fielder Adam Jones as the Orioles' recipient of the 2014 Heart and Hustle Award. The honor values athletes who “demonstrate a passion for the game of baseball and best embody the values, spirit and tradition of the game” and is the only big league award voted on by former players. Jones, along with the 29 winners from the other clubs, was selected for his work ethic and passion for baseball. “He represents all the best qualities of a teammate and competitor,” Brooks Robinson, Orioles Hall of Fame third baseman and Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association president, said in a statement.

It was a '90s kind of deal. The Cleveland Indians traded their contract problem to the Atlanta Braves for a star-quality outfielder who had priced himself out of the starting lineup and a center fielder on a fixed income.Confused?This is only the beginning. Major-league owners have been trying for years to find a way to emulate the NBA and the NFL and -- with the signing of the new collective bargaining agreement -- they finally have succeeded. You can't go to a game without tripping over the luxury tax threshold or pick up the newspaper without getting another unwanted economics lesson.

When Hall of Famer Frank Robinson joined the Orioles in 1966, he was surprised by the youth the club had in key areas, including then-22-year-old center fielder Paul Blair who would play to Robinson's right for most of the next six seasons. Blair was coming off his first 100-plus-game season in the majors when the 30-year-old Robinson was acquired to man right field. “I didn't know how many years [Paul] had been there, I just had heard we had a [young] center fielder, a rookie second baseman [Davey Johnson]

Atholton is the two-time defending Howard County softball champion, but Raiders coach John Zitko doesn't think his team should automatically be labeled as this season's favorite. "I think it's going to be a real dogfight in the county this year," Zitko said. "I don't see us as a favorite." The Raiders are good enough to win another county title, but Centennial and River Hill are expected to challenge. Atholton (22-4) has the top battery in the county with All-County players Katie Zitnay (pitcher)

Plastic tarps covered the Yankees' lockers, and the smell of champagne hung in the air after the club's 3-1 series-clinching win over the pesky Orioles. But the New Yorkers kept their celebration in check, knowing they had another game the next evening against the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series. "I think everybody's taking it easy right now and not drinking too much champagne," said Game 1 hero Russell Martin, clutching a bottle of bubbly. To a man, the Yankees paid homage to an Orioles team that chased them down the stretch and put them through 52 innings of nerve-fraying baseball over the last six days.

Brady Anderson has played center field for the past four seasons. He said he plans to occupy that position for the next four as well."I've never heard of any dissatisfaction with my play in center," Anderson said before last night's 11-5 victory over Toronto. "And there shouldn't be, either."Well, his opinion isn't shared by all.Orioles general manager Pat Gillick, while refraining from direct criticism, said yesterday that Anderson plays too shallow in center, and that Jeffrey Hammonds could challenge him at that position next spring.
