Jamie Walker, Orioles reliever How tough is it for the bullpen knowing Chris Ray will likely be out through the 2008 season? I'm trying to be a positive person. It stinks for him, but at least he's got it fixed now. I don't know that much about Tommy John [surgery], but I know people come back from it.

CABRERA WILD AGAIN Daniel Cabrera didn't have his velocity or his command last night, and the result was a rocky six innings that saw the Orioles starter give up five earned runs on six hits, five walks and a hit batsman. It marked the third time this season Cabrera gave up six earned runs or more and the five walks were one off a season high. Even with his early struggles, Cabrera held things together until the fourth, when he issued Tadahito Iguchi a two-out walk, setting the stage for Jim Thome's three-run homer.

Poll results Last week we asked which former Oriole from the past five years would you like to see back with the team? More than 2,400 people responded, and New York Mets pitcher John Maine, traded two offseasons ago with Jorge Julio for Kris Benson, won in a landslide with nearly 65 percent of the vote. Former slugger Sammy Sosa, now with the Texas Rangers, received just 3 percent. The results: John Maine, 64.2 percent (1,566 votes) Gary Matthews Jr., 12 (292 votes) Eric Byrnes, 11.5 (281 votes)

While it's still too soon to make a definitive judgment, things are looking up for the Orioles' bullpen. It has a 3.35 ERA after last night's game in St. Petersburg, Fla., as opposed to last season's 5.25 figure. Throw out the April 7 fiasco in New York and this year's number is really low. For some reason, this improvement was deemed inevitable, both here and throughout the major leagues, because the Orioles spent $42.4 million last winter on four veteran relief pitchers with proven track records - Jamie Walker, Danys Baez, Chad Bradford and Scott Williamson.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- Erik Bedard doesn't assume that he'll be the Orioles' starter on Opening Day. He's only throwing like it. Bedard retired all six batters he faced yesterday, getting strikes on 16 of his 20 pitches, in a 3-0 victory over the Florida Marlins. "You start off like that, it feels good," he said. "I was trying to throw strikes. Not even trying to nibble on the corners or anything. Just trying to get everything over the plate and see what they could hit. "I used everything.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- At this time last year, Chris Ray was one of the biggest story lines during the Orioles' spring training. Not only was he in his first major league camp, but he also was being asked to take over the closer's role from departed All-Star B.J. Ryan. But after a solid 2006, when Ray had 33 saves in 38 opportunities and a 2.73 ERA, he has managed to maintain a low profile since arriving last week. Much of the attention has been on the Orioles' four relief additions, all of whom were brought in to set up Ray. "I don't mind that at all," Ray said.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- The Orioles signed Jamie Walker, a 35-year-old left-handed reliever, to a three-year, $12 million deal in the offseason. In response, his former Detroit Tigers teammate, Todd Jones, said of the Tennessee native: "$12 million is a lot of money, but $12 million in Tennessee? He might as well be Donald Trump. That's a lot of generic-brand beer, and a lot of NASCAR tickets. You know how many fishing lures you can buy at Wal-Mart with $12 million?" What do Orioles fans need to know about Jamie Walker?
