The Vladimir Guerrero signing was another big move for the Orioles as Spring Training approaches. Here's what other media outlets have to say about the signing, and the team's off-season as a whole. • ESPN.com's Tristan H. Cockcroft thinks the Guerrero signing will be big for the man slated to hit in front of him, Nick Markakis. A final note on Guerrero's arrival in Baltimore: Might it improve things for Nick Markakis, the Orioles' projected No. 3 hitter? Markakis most often had Ty Wigginton hitting behind him in 2010 (also Miguel Tejada and Scott, on occasion)

Sitting at his locker on Monday night, Orioles designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero told reporters (through interpreter Rudy Arias) that he didn't know until the Toronto series two weeks ago that he was on the verge of passing Julio Franco to become the all-time MLB career hits leader among Dominican-born players. But Guerrero is well aware that he is a few hundred hits away from joining the 3,000-hit club. After his rally-starting single off Josh Beckett in Monday night's 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox, Guerrero has 2,587 hits in 16 years in the major leagues.

Edge really messed up this time. It appears as if his and Vickie Guerrero's glorious reign of terror on Smackdown is over - along with their relationship - because he was caught on tape making out with the wedding planner. Triple H crashed Edge and Guerrero's wedding reception Thursday night on Smackdown and revealed the hidden video of Edge putting the moves on Alicia Fox. I'm deeply saddened by this shocking development. Edge and Guerrero are an awesome heel act and they have been carrying Smackdown.

The first game of the season-ending "Fan Appreciation Celebration" at Oriole Park quickly turned into something completely different in the sixth inning on Monday night when Vladimir Guerrero kept his date with international baseball history. Guerrero singled up the middle in his third at-bat of the Orioles' 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox and passed Julio Franco to become the all-time major league leader in hits by a Dominican-born player. He also sparked a four-run rally that dragged the reeling Red Sox into a wild card dead heat with the surging Tampa Bay Rays.

San Francisco -- A third round was just too much for Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios. Rios, competing in his first All-Star Game Home Run Derby, had hit 17 homers in the first two rounds to lead all contestants before hitting just two in the final round last night at AT&T Park. That opened the door for Los Angeles Angels slugger Vladimir Guerrero, who slipped into the final before hitting three homers in 10 swings to win it. Guerrero, who borrowed a bat from the Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz, hit five in the first round and then nine in the second, including a Derby-long 503-foot shot that gave him 14 in two rounds and catapulted him into the final.

In mid-November, Orioles vice president Mike Flanagan predicted that free-agent right fielder Vladimir Guerrero would be one of the last players to sign this winter, sensing baseball's usual offseason protocol would be turned on its ear. Turns out, Flanagan was right. Normally, the rest of the market waits to move until the top player signs his contract, with lesser players falling in line. This year, that hasn't been the case. The Orioles have signed shortstop Miguel Tejada (six years, $72 million)

Mike Flanagan's Christmas break lasted one day, an abbreviated trip to New Jersey that ended with him back at the office, still trying to negotiate a deal that would put Vladimir Guerrero in an Orioles uniform. "That's just the nature of the beast," said Flanagan, the club's vice president of baseball operations. Flanagan spoke to Guerrero's representatives, Fernando Cuza and Diego Benz, twice during the weekend. The Orioles made an initial five-year, $65 million offer, and they hope to add Guerrero to a lineup that now includes shortstop Miguel Tejada and catcher Javy Lopez.

The Orioles haven't forgotten about free-agent shortstop Miguel Tejada, even if it seems the rest of the baseball world is ignoring him. Tejada was the American League's 2002 Most Valuable Player, but so far this offseason, his only reported offer has come from the Seattle Mariners - for three years at between $24 million and $25 million. Yesterday, a high-ranking Orioles official said they will definitely top that offer, though he declined to say what the number of years or dollar amount will be. The same club official also shot down the possibility of the Orioles trading for disgruntled Boston Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra.

If the suddenly stumbling and bumbling Boston Red Sox fail to make the playoffs, some credit must go to the perennial basement dwellers of the American League East. For the seventh time in nine games, the last-place Orioles inexplicably have beaten a playoff contender. On Wednesday night, before an increasingly nervous, sellout crowd of 38,004 at Fenway Park, Mark Reynolds hit two homers and the Orioles beat the AL wild-card-leading Red Sox, 6-4. "Our guys have had a good look on their face for about two weeks now," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

A day after leaving Target Field for a local hospital because of to shortness of breath, center fielder Adam Jones was back in the Orioles' starting lineup Wednesday and making jokes about his potential health scare. "I wanted my mom," joked Jones, who left Tuesday's game in the second inning. "I called my mom and said, 'Mommy, come fly to Minnesota and come take care of me.' " Jones said he had no trouble when he batted in the first Tuesday, but when he went out to the field in the bottom of the inning he couldn't catch his breath.

With just one hit and one walk in 18 at-bats this homestand, Orioles designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero was given a day off from starting Wednesday, but manager Buck Showalter said not to read too much into it. Guerrero will start — and "more than likely" — hit cleanup against Chicago White Sox left-hander Mark Buehrle on Thursday, Showalter said. In 47 career plate appearances against Buerhle, Guerrero is 13-for-40 (.325 average) with four homers, six RBIs, seven walks and a slugging percentage of .675.

TORONTO - Vladimir Guerrero 's career low in home runs in a season in which he has played 90 games or more is 11, and that came all the way back in 1997, his rookie year with the Montreal Expos. That same season, he drove in 40 runs, which also stands as a career low. Guerrero, who was activated from the disabled list today, has a little more than two months to eclipse those marks in what has been arguably been the most worst season of his likely Hall of Fame career. "I feel good and my hand is much better," said Guerrero, who missed 10 games with a cracked bone in his right hand suffered when he was hit by a pitch from Boston Red Sox rookie Kyle Weiland on July 10. "We still have two months left, and I feel good.

Orioles designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero missed his third consecutive game and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, manager Buck Showalter said after Saturday's game. Guerrero was hit by a pitch in last Sunday's game against the Red Sox, cracking a small bone in his right hand. Showalter said the 15-day count would be backdated to July 6, theoretically marking his possible return date at July 21. The team called up Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Matt Angle to take Guerrero's roster spot.

Designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero didn't hit cleanup for the Orioles on Thursday night, but it had nothing to do with his waning production in the first half. Guerrero came into the clubhouse Thursday afternoon still feeling discomfort in his right hand, were he was hit with a pitch by the Boston Red Sox's Kyle Weiland on Sunday. "He came in about 1:30 and said he needed another day, pretty sore," Showalter said. Guerrero was struck in the hand in the fifth inning and left Sunday's game — at the time, that concerned Showalter.

PHOENIX -- The Orioles hope to be part of the Vladimir Guerrero sweepstakes this offseason, but team officials are privately expressing a reluctance to pay Guerrero, or any player, $15 million a year. There's a feeling within the Orioles' organization that two players making $8 million apiece might improve their chances more than one player making $16 million. Yesterday, club insiders said that's a position held from Orioles owner Peter Angelos on down through his top baseball people.

Having met last week with representatives for free-agent outfielder Vladimir Guerrero, the Orioles are prepared to resume discussions as the winter meetings approach. Mike Flanagan, the Orioles' vice president of baseball operations, said both sides expressed their interest during last Tuesday's session, but no formal offer was made to Guerrero's agents, Diego Benz and Fernando Cuza. That should change once the meetings begin Dec. 12 in New Orleans, if not sooner. "We didn't get real specific on numbers," Flanagan said.

Leave it to Orioles manager Buck Showalter to come up with the perfect word to describe marginally productive cleanup hitter Vladimir Guerrero. "Unconventional. " It's perfect in this context, because it can be interpreted as both a compliment and a curse, depending on whether you're viewing Guerrero as a potential Hall of Famer at the end of a long and storied career or a stubborn veteran who refuses to recognize that what was once a great strength has become a great weakness.

It’s been a so-so season for designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero, who is hitting .290 with just 28 RBIs in 259 at-bats. So could Guerrero, who is 36 and banking a cool $8 million this year, be on the move? Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman thinks so. Today on SI.com Heyman compiled a list of 24 hitters who could be swapping jerseys before the trade deadline. Guerrero checked in at No. 12, while left fielder Luke Scott is four spots up at No. 8. Of Guerrero, Heyman notes: “ He's pretty pricey ($8 million)
