Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday he wouldn't be engaging in contract extension talks with any players during the season -- meaning the future of pending free agents J.J. Hardy , Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis will be on hold until after this season ends. “We're not going to be exploring any extensions during the season. We are focused on the club during the season,” Duquette said. “Once the season starts, I think it benefits the team and the players and the fans to keep the focus on the field and the players on the field.” In May 2012, Duquette reached a six-year contract extension with center fielder Adam Jones.

Quarterback Joe Flacco was not the only one to be rewarded financially after the Ravens' victory in Super Bowl XLVII in February. Coach John Harbaugh, who has led the Ravens to the playoffs in each of his five seasons at the helm, agreed to a four-year contract extension that will make him one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL, a team source confirmed. The deal was reached “months ago,” according to a source. However, it just surfaced Thursday about an hour before the NFL season opener between the Ravens and the Denver Broncos.

In the week leading up to Towson's appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision title game last Saturday, school officials, alumni and fans basked in the team's success. They also peppered athletic director Tim Leonard with an oft-repeated question regarding head coach Rob Ambrose. "'Are we going to be able to keep Rob?'" Leonard recalled. "I know that was the No. 1 question I got during the week of the championship game. Now, we can answer that. " The university on Wednesday erased any doubt about Ambrose's future by annoucing a new deal that will keep him at the school until 2020.

SARASOTA, Fla. - After adding two big-ticket free-agent acquisitions over the past week, the Orioles now appear to be focused on locking up shortstop J.J. Hardy to a contract extension. The Orioles had a face-to-face meeting with Hardy's representation late last week with the intention of initiating extension talks. The 31-year-old Hardy, who has been one of the top power-hitting shortstops in the game and is the glue of the Orioles infield, has long said he'd like to remain in Baltimore for the long term.

The Ravens are six games away from completing the 2012 regular season, and they are approaching the time when a team might consider signing its franchise quarterback to a contract extension. So far, it hasn't happened for quarterback Joe Flacco and you have to wonder what front office members of the Ravens might be thinking. If this season is Flacco's final case to show he deserves to be one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL, then he might have raised some doubt. In home games this season Flacco has completed 115 of 173 passes for 1,612 yards, 10 touchdowns and completed 29 passes for 20 yards or more.

"We are sailing the same ship, so to say, and that ship is called quality, great music-making and a passion for what we do. The orchestra has come to the point where every note they play and prepare -- and, by the way, they are always wondefully prepared -- is played for their lives and and the lives of the audience.

So the Orioles added a second baseman to their 40-man roster Monday. And it wasn't Brian Roberts. It was Cord Phelps, a former third-round pick by the Cleveland Indians who was put on waivers and claimed by the Orioles. According to executive vice president Dan Duquette, Phelps, 26, will compete for the open second base job -- a battle that likely will include Ryan Flaherty and rookie Jonathan Schoop. I don't know much about Phelps, except that he was once highly thought of by the Indians.

Chris Davis was officially named the 2013 Most Valuable Oriole on Sunday. I guess that's what happens when you break the franchise record for homer runs -- with 53 -- and drive in a major league-best 138 runs. Yeah, it's been a pretty good season for Davis. He received all but one first place vote from the media that covers the team. Adam Jones got that one. Jones finished second overall and Manny Machado third. Chris Tillman also received some votes. Here's an excerpt from Davis' news conference: “It's been a really fun year for me personally, a little disappointing at the end, obviously, not making the postseason.

" After securing running back Ray Rice to a long-term deal Monday, the Ravens accelerated contract talks with Flacco's agent, Joe Linta, this week. At this point, no deal is imminent but both sides are optimistic that one can be reached before the season, which represents Flacco's final year of his rookie contract.

In the seventh inning of Saturday's loss at Tropicana Field, the Tampa Bay Rays hit two triples into the left-center gap. Both times, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones tracked the balls down and threw into the infield. Then, both times, Jones grimaced in pain as his knees momentarily buckled. He stayed in the game and later drove in the Orioles' lone run. But he definitely wasn't right in the seventh. In classic Jones' fashion, he refused to talk about specifics of the discomfort, though he did admit he's aching.
