Ervin Santana

The Orioles didn't land veteran right-hander Bronson Arroyo this week; he signed a two-year deal with a third-year option with the Arizona Diamondbacks worth a guaranteed $23.5 million. A.J. Burnett is still on the open market, but there is a growing sense that the Monkton resident is not going to end up in Baltimore -- I've heard various theories as to why, but since they aren't coming directly out of Burnett's mouth, it doesn't make much sense to speculate. Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez are still looking for jobs, and the Orioles are interested and talking to both, but their asking prices and attachment to a draft pick make me wonder how serious the Orioles are about signing either right-hander.

The Orioles are continuing their pursuit of a starting pitcher and have been in recent contact with some of the top names left on the board, including Ervin Santana, Bronson Arroyo and Ubaldo Jimenez. One source referred to the talks as “a continuing dialogue,” but it's unclear whether the club is headed toward any immediate resolution. “We're still talking to a couple of pitchers,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Friday night, though he declined to specify which.

OK, here's what we know about the Orioles' offseason so far. It hasn't been pretty. I mean, really not pretty. The most significant addition so far has probably been pitching coach Dave Wallace, but the front office has not added a pitcher to a rotation that Wallace needs to improve for this club to have a fighter's chance in 2014. Many of the top free agents are off the board. Spring training is looming and this club has taken a step backward in talent from the 85-win version of 2013.

Today marks the first day that Major League Baseball's free agents can sign with any club. In the previous period between today and the end of the World Series, players could only sign with their most recent clubs. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday that, during the exclusive signing period, he did not have any negotiations with representatives of his seven free agents -- right-handed pitchers Scott Feldman, Jason Hammel and Francisco Rodriguez, infielder Brian Roberts, catcher Chris Snyder and outfielders Nate McLouth and Mike Morse.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette was fairly adamant last offseason that he would not sign a free agent who would require his club to give up its first-round draft pick. He didn't, and the Orioles selected high school pitcher Hunter Harvey with the 22nd overall pick of the 2013 amateur draft. This year, however, Duquette seems to have softened that stance, at least slightly. When asked whether he still would be hesitant to forfeit a pick for a free agent, Duquette said: “We'll have to evaluate that on a case-by-case basis.

As well as Wei-Yin Chen pitched through his first seven innings in a 4-3 loss to the Royals on Wednesday night, one of the main storylines of the night ended up being how the Orioles couldn't score more runs off Kansas City starter Ervin Santana. Santana has historically had a penchant for giving up homers, which you would think would play into the Orioles' hands since they lead the majors with 137 homers. But Santana, who allowed a majors-worst 39 homers last season for the Angels, has cut down on allowing the long ball.

White Sox and Angels Bill Shaikin Los Angeles Times The White Sox might be the biggest surprise, since management appears to vacillate between keeping an old team together and rebuilding. The Sox won the World Series in 2005, but they have won one playoff game since then and attendance has fallen from 3 million to 2 million. But pitching wins, and the White Sox are the only AL team in the top three in earned-run average for starters and relievers. The Angels would be the biggest disappointment.

The mystery that is Alfredo Simon is not really a mystery at all. He showed again Sunday afternoon that what you see is what you get — if what you see is an on-again, off-again pitcher who was off again in a lopsided 11-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards. Remember how manager Buck Showalter shrugged off Simon's impressive performance Tuesday night? Remember how he talked about "trust" and made it clear that Simon had not earned enough of it to be assured of a place in the starting rotation next spring?

First baseman Mark Reynolds was out of the starting lineup Sunday for precautionary reasons after he was hit in the head by Los Angeles Angels pitcher Ervin Santana in the third inning of Saturday night's game. Reynolds said Sunday morning that he felt fine except for a sore spot above his left temple. He also left no doubt that he feels Santana hit him intentionally in his first at-bat after he slammed his 34th homer off the Angels right-hander. "I think he hit me on purpose," Reynolds said.

For 14 seasons, Camden Yards has been devoid of playoff hopes in September. Now, that malaise is spreading to the visitors' dugout. With a 6-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night, the Orioles (62-88) have won four consecutive games against teams clinging to postseason dreams. They have one more game against the Angels on Sunday, then try to ruin the baseball lives of the American League wild-card-leading Boston Red Sox next week at Fenway Park. "I think it more so just shows the type of people we are as a team," said Orioles rookie left-hander Zach Britton, who allowed just three hits, two walks and a run over seven excellent innings.
