It was a loss of epic proportions. On the day Dave Trembley was introduced as the Orioles' permanent manager, his team greeted him with the worst performances in franchise history yesterday, losing to the Texas Rangers, 30-3, in the first game of a doubleheader. A little perspective: No major league team had scored as many as 30 runs in a game in 110 years. It has happened nine times in baseball history, the last being when the Chicago Colts drubbed the Louisville Colonels, 36-7, on June 29, 1897, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

As of today, the Orioles will become baseball's displaced team. The All-Stars move in through tomorrow night's game, and the Orioles move out until Wednesday's workout.For Gregg Olson and Chris Hoiles, it's a chance to push further behind them the disappointment of not being chosen to the American League team by manager Cito Gaston."It's going to make it [the break] a little bit tougher," Olson, a 1990 All-Star, said yesterday at Camden Yards, "knowing that it might be my one chance to play in an All-Star Game in front of the home fans."

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter said his final visit to Camden Yards this week brought back memories of his first full season in pinstripes. That year, he played against the Orioles in the American League Championship Series and he was in awe of Cal Ripken, Jr., whom Jeter still regards as a role model. “I was sort of thrust right into it,” Jeter said before his final regular-season game at Camden Yards on Sunday night. “Baltimore had great teams. I remember coming here in 1996 in my first full season.

It's over. World Series dreams have shattered. Time to reflect on a glorious season and a special Sunday afternoon at Camden Yards:It was about a million degrees, I couldn't smoke, I had a wicked hangover and, though I'd been in Baltimore six months, this was my first Orioles game. Utter blasphemy in the eyes of this baseball-obsessed city.I only bought the tickets because an Oriole-worshiping friend was visiting from out of town.We had great seats."These are great seats!""I know; I paid $50 for them."

It doesn't matter that Mike Flanagan asked out of the Orioles' organizational meetings last week in Florida. For them to be held without him just doesn't sound right, or promising for his future in his current position. As we vilify Travis Johnson for taunting Trent Green while he lay unconscious with a concussion, we confirm again that the health and well-being of the quarterback is way more important than that of some lineman. So by all means, let's heap sympathy on a player who chopped at a colleague's knees and risked both their careers in the process.

For the first time since the current expansion process started 15 months ago, four NFL officials visited Baltimore yesterday on a one-day fact-finding mission.Roger Goodell, the league's executive director for club relations, and three of his aides met with Baltimore officials, toured Harborplace and attended last night's Orioles game at Camden Yards.None of the owners and the expansion committee, who will do the actual voting, made the trip, because commissioner Paul Tagliabue is having his staff members collect all of the HTC information from the five cities left in the expansion derby.

The rasp told it all.Peter Angelos was ill, so ill that the Orioles' owner was absent yesterday for the team's belated home opener at Camden Yards.While the owner's friends sampled finger food and took in the game from his private suite, Angelos sat in his North Baltimore home, watching the game on television.Angelos said he had the flu. So did his wife, Georgia, who watched the game with him."We felt it was best that we quarantined ourselves," the owner said in a low voice. "As contagious as this might be, it is best for us not to circulate."

While Chris Davis' season has been a struggle at the plate, there's no question the Orioles first baseman still can change a game with one swing of his bat.   Davis is hitting just .189 this season, but regardless of his place in the club's lineup, he still gets respect at the plate - so much so that opponents recently have chosen to make his teammates beat them rather than keep the bat in Davis' hands.   The Minnesota Twins, however, had no choice but to pitch to Davis with the bases loaded in the fourth inning Friday night, and Davis made them pay by crushing a grand slam off Twins right-hander Trevor May, the pivotal blast in a 9-1 drubbing before an announced 27,464 at Camden Yards.

As Ubaldo Jimenez walked off the mound in the middle of the eighth inning of the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night, he was greeted by the home crowd at Camden Yards with a standing ovation. The reception hasn't always been as warm for Jimenez, who was signed to a club-record four-year, $50 million contract in February. He has heard his share of boos from the seating bowl after many disappointing and short outings. On Monday, Jimenez could stand tall, and he touched the bill of his cap to the crowd after delivering his deepest outing of the season and earning his first win in an Orioles uniform in front of the home crowd . “As a ballplayer, that's what you play for, to be there for the fans, to get a good [cheer]

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who has not pitched since developing a deep blister on his right thumb May 3 in Anaheim, is getting closer to appearing in a big league game. Gonzalez threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Wednesday, the last few without a bandage covering the thumb (he won't be able to use a covering in a game). He said he came out feeling “really good.” “The ball was coming out good,” Gonzalez said. “The breaking pitches were fine. I was pretty happy about my performance.” Gonzalez is next scheduled to pitch in a simulated game Friday afternoon at Camden Yards so that the team can best control the environment.

It could have been one of the coolest scenes in Baltimore baseball history. Players and fans cheering together at Camden Yards as the Los Angeles Angels lost to the Texas Rangers and gave the Orioles their first playoff berth since 1997. It was still pretty cool, but it didn't work out as neatly as hoped. The Angels came back on the Rangers and closer Joe Nathan, scoring two runs in the ninth on a Torii Hunter double to give the Angels the lead. They won it in the ninth, to keep the Orioles' postseason clinching celebration at bay at least until later Sunday night when the Angels and Rangers face off again.

Jason Hammel, who had surgery on his right knee in July, threw 41 pitches in a mound session Tuesday and also went through pitcher's fielding practice for the first time since loose bodies were removed from the knee. He felt good afterward, and if no pain lingers this week, he will throw a two- or three-inning simulated game Friday at Camden Yards, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Hitters will stand in while Hammel throws from a mound.     “That's what our hope is, Friday.

ON JUNE 4, I had wanted to treat a friend to an Orioles game at Camden Yards. It was an anniversary: 27 years earlier, I had attended my first game at Memorial Stadium. It did not happen though. We were turned away: sold out.Then a scalper came by, wanting $40 for a ticket. I said no. He replied, "Enjoy the game in a bar buddy!" I said "Enjoy your time in a cage!"We bought tickets for Labor Day weekend -- the only future date that tickets were available. Then we went to my old neighborhood, Highlandtown.

Accusing Baltimore's baseball team of behaving like a dictatorship, Latino community leaders, including some city officials, are bitterly criticizing the Orioles' decision to ban flags, banners and noisemakers at Oriole Park at Camden Yards during Monday's game against the Cuban national team.The Orioles say the ban, which is not new and applies to regular season games at the stadium, is necessary to ensure that all fans enjoy the game.But Latino groups -- on both sides of the planned protests over the game and the U.S. embargo against the island nation -- said that to maintain such stringent rules for a game against a dictatorship's team sends the wrong message.

Adam Jones had a simple request for the South team of the Brooks Robinson All-Star Game at Camden Yards on Sunday. A day after his walk-off home run in extra innings against the Philadelphia Phillies, and minutes after he scored the winning run in extra innings Sunday, another walk-off win, Jones had some more walking on his mind. This time, it concerned his dog. And there came the request. "He just wanted us to score and get ahead so he had a reason to leave and go home to walk his dog," said Cody Acker (Blake)

Players for both Gilman and Mount St. Joseph will be trying to control their emotions Saturday when they meet in a rematch of the inaugural President's Cup final Saturday at Camden Yards. The two long-time Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference rivals will be trying to take in the scene and dwell on the moment at the second-annual event. But the teams will be approaching the game differently. A year ago, Gilman won the President's Cup title but turned around a week later and lost to the Gaels in an MIAA A Conference game.
