NEW YORK -- Right-hander Chris Tillman said he was honored to be named the Orioles' starter in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. “It means a lot,” Tillman said. “I'm excited about it, looking forward to it. I still got one more start to go [in the regular season], so I'm pretty focused on that, but at the same time I know it means a lot to the team, means a lot to me and hopefully get us going in the right direction.” The Orioles have won each of Tillman's last 11 starts, and Tillman is 6-0 in August and September, all from a pitcher who didn't pitch in the postseason in 2012.

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.

NEW YORK - Right-hander Chris Tillman will make his postseason debut next week as the Orioles' starting pitcher in Game 1 of the American League Division Series at Camden Yards. It appeared evident that Tillman would start the Oct. 2 playoff opener once Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the pitcher would start Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays on one extra day of rest and then do the same going into the postseason. But Showalter officially announced the move before Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.

NEW YORK - As the final week of the regular season begins, the Orioles' postseason pitching plan is becoming clearer. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium that he plans to use four starters in the American League Division Series. Right-hander Chris Tillman is on turn to start with one extra day of rest in the Orioles' series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre on Friday, which also puts him in line to start Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 2, also on one extra day of rest.

With career highs in home runs and RBIs, Nelson Cruz did more than enough to earn his first Most Valuable Oriole award this season. Now the question is whether the pending free agent will return next year to have a chance to win it again. “Hopefully I stay here, we work something out. Like I said before, I understand they're going to do whatever they think is better for the team,” Cruz, 34, said. “I love it here. I love the fans, I love my teammates.” Cruz, who leads the major leagues in home runs with 39 and is second in the American League with 106 RBIs, said before Sunday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox that he'll think about his contract situation once his season is completed.

After the Orioles' 7-2 victory Saturday night over the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter was preparing himself for a postgame discussion with Adam Jones, whom he was considering sitting for Sunday's regular-season home finale. It would be a short turnaround for an afternoon game, but these kind of discussions are delicate for Showalter. Jones, the club's All-Star center fielder, wants to play every day, and usually does, ignoring the nagging bumps and bruises of a long season.

The Orioles clinching a division title had been inevitable for weeks. But for fans who'd waited 17 years to reclaim bragging rights in the American League East, witnessing the actual moment at Camden Yards Tuesday night seemed essential. A sweet moment it was, with orange and white confetti raining from the upper deck as the Orioles formed an exultant mob on the field after beating the Toronto Blue Jays, 8-2, to seize their first divisional title since 1997. “This was awesome.

Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't have his best outing Sunday night against the New York Yankees, but he still extended his remarkable streak of consistency that has now lasted more than three months as he has solidified his spot as the club's ace. After allowing one run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 3-2, walk-off victory over the Yankees, Tillman has recorded 19 straight starts of allowing three earned runs or fewer. That mark ties him with Milt Pappas (1965)

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been shuffling his pitching staff all season. If he can find a way to get a starter some rest or bring an extra pitcher into the bullpen for a day or two, he'll do it. The obvious result is that his relievers, for the most part, have maintained their health while pitching effectively. Heading into Saturday's game against the New York Yankees, Orioles relievers had the fourth-best ERA in the American League and sixth-most innings pitched. Only closer Zach Britton was among the league's top 10 in appearances, with 66. Darren O'Day was tied for 25th, with 62, and neither pitched in Saturday's 3-2 loss.

The Orioles take on the New York Yankees for a day-night doubleheader today in what should be the kickoff for clinch week -- assuming the Orioles can continue the momentum they built in a three-game sweep over the Boston Red Sox. I thought Thursday's day off would be a good time to do a question-and-answer session, so I asked Twitter followers to help out. Here were some of the questions -- and my replies. Hopefully, it will answer the primary questions that have been burning in your mind about the Orioles.
