Tampa Bay right-hander James Shields, who will start Tuesday night's pivotal game against the Orioles, is wrapping up a very successful 2012 season that - so far - has featured a 15-9 and a solid 3.62 ERA. That's almost proportionately consistent with his career numbers in 23 career starts against the Orioles. He's a very good pitcher, but the Orioles have proven this season that he is far from unbeatable. In his two previous 2012 starts against them, he has not been particularly impressive, giving up six runs (four earned)

KANSAS CITY -- No surprise here. James Shields is expected to start the first game of the American League Championship Series for the Kansas City Royals against the Orioles on Friday at Camden Yards. “Friday is Shields' fifth day,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I imagine he'll be our starter. I'm almost certain Shields will start Game 1.” The Royals' three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels in an American League Division Series, completed with Sunday's 8-3 victory at Kauffman Stadium, has allowed Yost the luxury of setting up his pitching order as he sees fit.

One of the teams the Orioles had to outlast to make the playoffs last season was the Tampa Bay Rays, and on Sunday night, the Rays made one of the biggest trades of the offseason. The Rays dealt right-handers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Wil Myers, arguably the top hitting prospect in the game, and three other prospects - right-hander Jake Odorizzi, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard. Rays manager Joe Maddon expressed his mixed reactions to losing Shields, the club's all-time leader in wins and strikeouts, and Davis, a reliever who would have been a back-end rotation starter on most teams, on Twitter, saying: “Hate … HATE to lose James and Wade.

The typically sound Orioles defense didn't help starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez on Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals at Camden Yards. Center fielder Adam Jones dropped a fly ball on the first play of the game that led to an unearned run, and the Orioles botched a rundown play that opened the door for a two-run fifth inning in the 9-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals in front of an announced 38,368. After finishing a 15-game stretch against American League East teams with a 9-6 record, the Orioles (12-12)

It's one of the most cherished items on my bookshelf, though it might not look it. It is thin and gray with corners rounded by time and a deep crease in the cover. The stray red and green crayon streaks evoke my age when I received it. "The Magic of the 1983 Orioles," it reads, with a big picture of Rick Dempsey bearhugging Scott McGregor underneath. I look at the picture and back I drift to that day, the final soft liner settling into Cal Ripken Jr.'s glove and the firecrackers popping across my downtown neighborhood seconds later.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Orioles manager Dave Trembley sat down three of his regulars last night, temporary adjustments made to revive his lineup. He held a closed-door meeting with his players before batting practice, herding them into the video room across from his office. Never claiming to have all the answers, he merely tried to find a few solutions. But what is a manager supposed to do when his starting pitcher can't get out of the second inning and his team falls behind by eight runs in the amount of time it takes to count heads in the meeting?

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Before Jason Hammel could become an Opening Day starter, he had to revisit his simpler days of pitching. Before the crowds, before the expectations, before worrying about his career and where he fit in, he needed to go back to the time when the game was free of distractions, when baseball wasn't much more complicated that throwing a ball through a tire in his backyard as a kid. The 30-year-old right-hander will start the...

If this is December, then there are a lot of Orioles fans who are wondering the same thing. Why is it that every year at this time, the other American League East teams do their holiday shopping at Lord &Taylor and the Orioles seem to do most of theirs at the dollar store? It's a fair question, considering that the Toronto Blue Jays are on a spending spree of such magnitude that it might impact the currency exchange rate between the United States and Canada, and the Boston Red Sox are buying up average players for $13 million apiece per season.

I talked to a major league scout Friday whose territory is strictly the American League East and whose opinion I really respect. He's always been pretty spot on with his assessments, so I was curious as to what he thought about what has happened with this division since the postseason ended. I'm going to warn you, Orioles fans, he's not sold on your club. In fact, if rosters were set today, the scout said he'd predict that the Orioles finish fourth in the AL East in 2013, just above the Tampa Bay Rays.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Right now, it's hard to get around the feeling that the Orioles have run out of magic. Maybe it evaporated when their on-field clinching celebration at Camden Yards on Sunday was put on hold by the Los Angeles Angels, who staged a late rally in Texas to win the first game of a doubleheader and keep the Orioles guessing until late that night. Maybe it was when they were squeezing their arm rests during that emergency landing in Jacksonville, Fla., on their way to play their final series of the year against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

X-rays taken on shortstop J.J. Hardy's left side following the Orioles' 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon were negative. Hardy, who was drilled in the side by a 91-mph fastball from James Shields in a five-run fifth inning, said he had a sizable bruise. He entered the Orioles' clubhouse with his torso wrapped in ice. "They're fine," he said. "They hurt but they're fine. They hurt a lot. " Hardy has started in 96 of the Orioles' 99 games this season and is playing through a sore throwing shoulder.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Maybe after what happened at this time last year, we all should have known that the American League East race - and the Orioles' position in the postseason - would come down to the last scheduled day of the regular season. Note the qualifier. Wednesday might not be the final day of the regular season if the stars, the Orioles and the New York Yankees line up in such a way as to force a climactic divisional showdown at Oriole Park on Thursday. It is certainly not out of the question after what happened Tuesday in St. Petersburg, but it may not be in the cards after another last-gasp Yankees comeback in The Bronx.
