Was this a spring training game or Ravens minicamp? With only a few regulars on the trip to Viera, Fla., which requires a bus ride up I-95 that lasts at least 2 1/2 hours, the Orioles went with their backups and tapped into their minor league camp for extra players. There were so many guys wearing uniform numbers in the 70s and 80s, the team looked as if it were sending out its offensive and defensive linemen to face the Washington Nationals. Center fielder Adam Jones and shortstop Luis Hernandez were the only projected everyday players who dressed at Space Coast Stadium.

By the time the Kansas City Royals left Baltimore with a four-game series split, they had seen enough of a certain 20-year-old rookie infielder. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's first four major league games came against the Royals, and Machado was 6-for-16 with three homers and seven RBIs against Kansas City. Five of his six hits were for extra basesĀ  -- three homers, a triple and a double. And after these first four games, you can add the Royals among those impressed with the 20-year-old phenom.

A January 18 Sun article on salaries of higher education officials reported that I had refused to accept a deferred compensation payment (" State university presidents' pay in middle of the pack"). This is not correct. The Sun based this on information released this week by the Chronicle of Higher Education that shows that I received a deferred compensation payment in 2008 but not in 2009. However, this change actually stems from the University System of Maryland Board of Regents' conversion of my deferred compensation to a multi-year performance payment.

Co-coaches of the YearScott Tobias and Jimmy Rodriguez, Westminster: Tobias moved from coaching softball for five years (three as head coach) to co-coach baseball with Rodriguez and came in with three goals for his players -- to have fun, to learn some baseball, and to win some games. "I believe we accomplished those goals," he said. A graduate of Millersville University, he has taught technology education the last six years. Rodriguez played at Liberty and went to Western Maryland but did not play baseball.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Devereaux spent spring training re-establishing himself as the Baltimore Orioles' everyday leadoff man, but he has spent the first month of the regular season on a power trip.Why else would his slugging percentage (.525) be more than twice as high as his batting average (.246)? But no one was complaining after his four-hit performance helped the club score a 2-0 victory over the California Angels on Friday night at Anaheim Stadium."Mike is capable of that," manager Frank Robinson said.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is adamant that he has had much tougher stretches in the major leagues, regardless of what the numbers suggest. Markakis went 0-for-4 in Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox and finished the second-to-last homestand of the season 2-for-26 with just one RBI, two walks and six strikeouts. "I'm in a funk right now," said Markakis, whose average dropped to .293. "I think my timing is off a little bit and I'm missing a few pitches. It's baseball. I just got to get myself out of it and finish up strong.

For a Rule 5 pick who is brand new to the ways of a major league baseball team, Randor Bierd pulled off a veteran move Thursday night. Anticipating that he would make the Orioles' 25-man roster as part of the bullpen, Bierd went to a nearby clothing store and purchased a suit so he could abide by the club's dress-code policy as it boarded a charter flight for the trip to Baltimore last night. Manager Dave Trembley requires a suit or sports coat and slacks. No jeans, no shorts. Trembley summoned Bierd into his office yesterday morning and congratulated the former Detroit Tigers farmhand for making the team.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley has strict rules about being on time and they apply to everybody, including his 17-year-old son. Kevin Trembley has been serving as an Orioles bat boy and helping his father by performing various other duties over the past couple of days. But he arrived at the back fields yesterday long after the workout began and quickly received a lecture from his father about punctuality. It couldn't have helped that the lecture, which was administered in a playful tone, came in front of Nick Markakis, who is Kevin's favorite player.

Orioles starting pitcher Daniel Cabrera spent the first two weeks of spring training taking extra PFP, an acronym for pitcher's fielding practice. And if manager Dave Trembley has his way, Cabrera will probably spend the last week of workouts doing the same thing. Cabrera, who has always had a hard time fielding his position, struggled mightily yesterday in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins, probably costing himself three runs because of his inability to make a routine play.

Tired of looking at it collect dust in front of Nick Markakis' locker, Jeremy Guthrie decided to put Markakis' golf bag to good use. Before yesterday's game, Guthrie packed the bag with Markakis' bats, gloves and even a towel. Guthrie then walked out to the outfield with the bag on his shoulder to greet Markakis, who was warming up. As Guthrie tended to the bag like he was serving as Markakis' caddie, Markakis grabbed a bat out of the bag and started swinging and then leaned down and grabbed a towel from the bag to wipe the sweat off his brow.

The Orioles played a game before their game yesterday, using one of their back fields for a little simulated action that didn't lack for interesting -- and at times comical -- moments. Unable to arrange any split-squad games this spring, the Orioles set up a batting cage and had some of their pitchers, including Jeremy Guthrie and Garrett Olson, face a small group of hitters. Triple-A pitching coach Larry McCall and instructor Don Werner took turns serving as the plate umpire while standing behind the cage.
