The deadline has passed for teams to submit uniform changes to Major League Baseball. From what I'm told, "Baltimore" still won't be appearing on the road jerseys in 2007. Sorry. I know how much that means to a lot of you. A reminder that the Orioles are expected to return to a 12-man pitching staff once Jay Gibbons comes off the disabled list. He's eligible on Sunday. Was there a better name in the draft than Evan Longoria, who went third to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays? I guess they were desperate for infield help.

The Orioles' sweep by the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field last weekend raised all kinds of red flags. But four days back home against the Tampa Bay Rays allowed the Orioles to get back to one of the things that has carried them to the top of the American League East -- a lights-out bullpen. Relief pitchers Brad Brach , Andrew Miller, and Zach Britton combined for three scoreless innings in Thursday's 5-4 win at Camden Yards, and the bullpen completed a four-game series against the Rays without allowing an earned run in 14 1/3 innings.

The Tampa Bay Rays announced yesterday that they were signing their third baseman, Evan Longoria, to a six-year, $17.5 million contract that could be worth as much as $44 million over nine seasons. Longoria, considered one of the top prospects in baseball, has played just six games. How do you suppose this makes Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis feel? The cheapest organization in baseball during the past 10 years - the Rays - decided they would rather commit to Longoria now, even though he barely has two series under his belt, while the Orioles are paying Markakis, already a budding star with two full seasons behind him, just $65,000 more than the league minimum.

Your browser does not support iframes. Nick Markakis has seen Adam Jones make his share of spectacular defensive plays over the years, so the right fielder might be the best judge of the center fielder's talents. And Markakis said after Monday's game that the double-play that Jones turned in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 9-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards might be one of the best he has seen his teammate make. With two runners on base and no outs, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria lofted a fly ball that appeared to be headed over the left-center field fence and into the Orioles bullpen.

The Orioles' top position prospect, Jonathan Schoop, had been away for most of the spring while representing the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. He finally returned Wednesday and, on Friday, he led the Orioles to a 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. The 21-year-old started at shortstop and had three hits in his first three at-bats, including a RBI single in the fifth and a two-run homer in the sixth against Rays starting pitcher Jeff Niemann. Steve Pearce also homered as the Orioles improved to 16-6-3 in Grapefruit League action.

How it happened: This one was over early. Orioles starter Brad Bergesen had gotten one out in the top of the first inning when Carl Crawford hit a routine infield pop-up. Orioles third baseman Miguel Tejada and shortstop Cesar Izturis failed to communicate, however, and the ball fell to the dirt. Crawford reached first safely, and Tejada was charged with a fielding error. Bergesen walked Evan Longoria two batters later, and then Carlos Pena slammed a home run to put the Rays ahead 3-0. That would have been more than enough for Tampa Bay, but Bergesen went on to allow five more runs, including three on B.J. Upton's first of two homers in the game, in going just three innings.

Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman struggled with his control early, but recovered well in 2 2/3 innings of work in his first career spring training start on Thursday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Rays at Ed Smith Stadium. Gausman, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 draft, walked the first two batters he faced, including a four-pitch walk to Desmond Jennings to open the game. But he was able to get out of the inning unscathed thanks to two fielder's choice ground balls and a swinging strike three change-up to former Oriole Luke Scott.

The Orioles bullpen went into the sixth inning of Sunday afternoon's game against the Tampa Bay Rays having allowed just one run over its past 30 innings. But a struggling Tampa Bay Rays offense came to life with a seven-run sixth inning -- all of the runs coming against the Orioles bullpen -- as 11 batters went to the plate. Six of the runs were scored with two outs in the inning off relievers Evan Meek and Brian Matusz. The Orioles entered the inning leading, 4-3, but No. 9 hitter Kevin Kiermaier hit a solo homer to right field off Meek with one out to tie the game.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The replay system hasn't been kind to the Orioles over the past three weeks as four of the five calls the club has challenged have not been overturned. The Orioles' luck started to change in the third inning of Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, when first baseman Chris Davis was awarded a grand slam following a crew-chief review on a ball that was initially called a double down the left-field line. Davis' third career grand slam gave the Orioles a 5-0 lead.

Nelson Cruz has hit eight home runs in his past 13 games, and All-Star voters have taken notice. The Orioles designated hitter has passed David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox as the top All-Star Game vote-getter at his position in the American League, according to results released Monday by Major League Baseball. Cruz, who leads the major leagues with 20 home runs and boasts a 1.055 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, has 888,855 votes, while Ortiz has 766,631. Last week's tallies had the Red Sox slugger ahead of Cruz, a two-time All-Star, by nearly 18,000 votes.

SARASOTA, FlA. - The Orioles finished their Grapefruit League schedule with a 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays under the lights at Ed Smith Stadium on Thursday night. The Rays plated the winning run in the top of the ninth off left-hander Troy Patton when former Oriole Wilson Betemit's sacrifice fly scored Desmond Jennings, who singled to open the inning and went to third on Jake DePew's single and ensuing errors by right-fielder Mike Yastrzemski. Jonathan Schoop tied the game in the eighth inning with a two-out, run-scoring double off the bottom of the centerfield wall off right-hander Merrill Kelly.

Tillman, who will be the team's Opening Day starter on Monday against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards, made his first start in nine days after missing his last scheduled appearance with the flu.

It was a good idea Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune Good baseball is always about doing what's called for in the situation. Evan Longoria's bunt attempt in the middle of Dallas Braden's perfect game on Sunday was a good idea at the time, and well within anyone's understanding of baseball etiquette. Longoria was leading off the fifth inning, with Tampa Bay trailing 4-0. While he's a power hitter, the four-run deficit meant the Rays needed a big inning. He was only thinking about getting on base to spark that when he tried to bunt Braden's first pitch for a hit. He fouled it off and would go on to strike out. Afterward, Braden called the try "intelligent," and he was right.

It depends on which line you want to consider before truly assessing Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta's performance in the club's 5-4 win against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. Arrieta's pitching line wasn't pretty: He lasted only five innings for the third consecutive start in this young season. He walked five, gave up three hits and threw 112 pitches, only 63 of them for strikes. Then there's the silver lining: Arrieta allowed just one run, thanks, in part, to his seven strikeouts.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - When it came to stopping Orioles first baseman Chris Davis in this week's season-opening series, the Tampa Bay Rays had few victories. One of those came in Davis' final at-bat of Thursday's 6-3 Orioles victory, when reliever Cesar Ramos' broke two of Davis' bats, eliciting cheers from the crowd of 17,491. “They broke Wonderboy in the last at-bat,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said, referring to the mythical Roy Hobbs' magical bat in the baseball classic “The Natural.” “So I don't know how he's doing to do from here on out. They got two of his bats, but he's got a couple more.
