The Orioles hadn't had a celebration like this since 1997. And they made the most of it. Some scenes from the Orioles' raucous champagne-spilling party in the visitors' clubhouse at Rangers Ballpark. Wei-Yin Chen grabbing Friday's hero, Joe Saunders, by the neck and just holding onto him for at least 20 seconds. Robert Andino dancing to a rap song in the middle of a huddle of players. Tommy Hunter dancing terribly after Andino, laughing all the way. Nick Markakis opening champagne bottles with his good hand - with his left hand covered in a plastic baggy -- spraying the bubbly on anyone and everyone.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has set his rotation for the upcoming Tampa Bay series. Well, kind of. The way it looks now, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday, Miguel Gonzalez, currently on the disabled list with an oblique strain, will start Tuesday and rookie Kevin Gausman will pitch the rubber game Wednesday against the Rays. But these are the Orioles, so changes could easily occur between now and the middle of the week. It's possible Gonzalez, who can be activated from the DL as early as Sunday, is needed in the bullpen.

Construction of a new clubhouse at Hobbit's Glen Golf Club in Harper's Choice has been delayed a month, according to Columbia Association President Phil Nelson. The demolition of the old clubhouse, which was scheduled to begin in October, has been moved back to November, with the opening of the club house scheduled for November 2014. "There have been delays in the project due to the architect not keeping up to speed with release of design data that is essential for developing the overall site plan," Nelson wrote in a memo to the CA Board of Directors.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Dominican slugger Nelson Cruz sat at his new locker a few weeks ago and surveyed the Orioles' spring training clubhouse. In one corner, Taiwanese pitcher Wei-Yin Chen was huddled with his interpreter. On the other side of the room, South Korean star Suk-min Yoon was playing pingpong. Right beside Cruz was Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia, soaking in the experience of a marquee Latin American player who has not forgotten what it was like to be a stranger in a strange new land.

The big spring training story of the past few days comes not from the Orioles' winter home in Sarasota, Fla., but from down the road in Fort Myers, where news that the Boston Red Soxhave banned beer in the clubhouse seems to have everyone in a tizzy. Pundits are pontificating about it, new manager Bobby Valentine is explaining it and the Red Sox players have been asked about it endlessly. (A personal favorite quote from veteran slugger David Ortiz: "We're not here to drink.

I am responding to the letter from Jervis Dorton who felt disappointed when he attended the presentation of four potential Columbia Association contractors, all of whom were bidding on the future renovation and/or reconstruction of the Hobbit's Glen clubhouse. I want to say up front that I respect Jervis' opinion, but his assessment is missing some very key facts. Only last year, the Columbia Association staff presented fait accompli, for board approval, a set of architectural drawings (no materials or interior designs were proposed)

Left-hander Zach Phillips, the last roster casualty in spring training, is in the Orioles clubhouse today. He said hello to manager Buck Showalter, then went to his locker. He doesn't know whether he'll be activated today. Part of that might have to do with the weather as well. It's still a consistent rain here at Camden Yards. “I got here, said, 'Hi,' to Buck, told him I was here and [he] said, 'We'll talk later.'” Phillips said. “And that was it.” If Phillips is activated, one possible move would be sending down righty Jason Berken to Triple-A Norfolk.

After beating the New York Yankees 3-2 in Game 2 of the ALDS on Monday night, the Orioles received a surprise visitor: Principal owner Peter G. Angelos. Angelos rarely makes an appearance in the clubhouse, and it's exceptionally rare for it to happen after a game. Media members can't remember that happening in the last decade, although he did meet the team during spring training this year and a few seasons ago before an Opening Day game.     It was almost like royalty had entered the room, and several players stood around to make sure they could shake his hand.

There are currently two major projects being proposed by the Columbia Association. One is to remodel or rebuild the Hobbit's Glen clubhouse for $5 million to $6 million to a level of use beyond its current capacity. It would have programs of use closer to Cattail Creek Country Club and possibly Turf Valley level. The other project is the proposed improvements to the Symphony Woods park that would include new pedestrian ways into the central areas of the current wooded open space but no budget to build now a beautiful fountain that would benefit more Columbians than the Hobbit's facility.

SARASOTA, FLA. - On the surface, the pending deal for former Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz seems like a simple case of the Orioles deftly working the back end of the free agent market to get a solid designated hitter at a very reasonable price. Of course, there is nothing simple about it. The arrival of an established power guy with decent right-left splits could impact the fortunes of several other hitters on the Orioles roster, and the presence of one of the players disciplined in the notorious Biogenesis performance enhancing drug scandal is certain to generate some mixed feelings in the clubhouse.

At the Swan and Dolphin Resort during this week's winter meetings, there are a lot of baseball experts talking about talent, resorting to on-base percentage and WAR to evaluate value. But how do you measure chemistry? How does having a good clubhouse guy improve your team and your ability to win on the field? And how do you rebound when you lose one? That's one of the questions facing Orioles manager Buck Showalter right now after the club traded closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland Athletics last week and also lost outfielder Nate McLouth and right-hander Scott Feldman to free agency.

Before Wednesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards, the Orioles were joined in the clubhouse by kids from the Maryland Table Tennis Center for an exhibition -- and then some competition. Under the guidance of USA Table Tennis Hall of Famer Larry Hodges, four of the nation's top juniors played in front of the Orioles before some of the players squared off against them. “They're having a great time,” Hodges said. “They were really nervous the first 10 minutes.

It's here -- the day Baltimore baseball fans have been awaiting since Game 5 of last year's AL Division Series loss to the Yankees. Riding the momentum of a series win in Tampa Bay, the Orioles will play their home opener this afternoon against the Twins here at Camden Yards. There's a special energy in the air today. Talking to players in the clubhouse the past few days, they've been eagerly awaiting this day as well. Regardless of expectations, it's always a special day for players as they run down the orange carpet for pregame introductions. But coming off last year's resurgence, they anticipate an energy today that will duplicate last year's postseason games at Camden Yards.

The awkwardness lasted all of a couple of minutes — or about the amount of time it took Cesar Izturis to approach the player who essentially took his job. As the Orioles infielders fielded groundballs for the first time this spring, Izturis made sure that J.J. Hardy knew exactly where the two stood. "He said, 'Listen man, if you need anything, you come to me and you ask me,'" recalled Hardy. "He couldn't stress it enough. He said, 'Don't feel like you can't come talk to me, don't think I'm mad at you for coming here.

The Yankees clubhouse was subdued and businesslike after Sunday's dramatic, 7-2, Game 1 ALDS victory, not surprising considering how many big games most of the players have experienced. The Yankees were happy for catcher Russell Martin, who hit the game-winning home run off Orioles closer Jim Johnson after a rough season offensively. "It's awesome," starter C.C. Sabathia said. "He's struggled all year, but his attitude has never changed. He came up with some big hits in September, and that was probably one of the biggest right there.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - From the moment manager Buck Showalter took over the club in August 2010, there was talk about how he needed to change the culture of losing that permeated everything Orioles. Not just get this team out of last place in the American League East, but push the Orioles above .500 for the first time since 1997 or, somehow, some way, propel them into the playoffs. More was needed; an attitude adjustment of sorts. Whether it's Showalter's commanding presence, an influx of new players or the natural enchantment that comes with finally tasting success, the Orioles return to Camden Yards for Friday's 2013 home opener as a club no longer content on being good enough.

This morning, the Orioles are reeling from designated hitter Wilson Betemit's right knee injury. More should be known today about the severity of Betemit's injury, but it doesn't look good. After Betemit's right knee buckled while he was running between first and second base Monday, an MRI revealed a Grade 2/3 posterior cruciate ligament tear with associated injuries. It's still unclear whether Betemit will need surgery. The injury definitely resonated through the Orioles clubhouse.
