Jeremy Guthrie no doubt impressed enemy scouts during Tuesday night's win over the Red Sox . The Orioles' top starter allowed two earned runs in seven innings of work, picking up (sadly) his fourth win of 2011 and improving his ERA to 4.35. Some contending teams are interested in acquiring Guthrie, whom Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun believes is "someone the Orioles likely would deal this month for the right offer. " Does ESPN baseball insider Tim Kurkjian think the Orioles should deal the 32-year-old right-hander?

Kansas City Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie will start a postseason game for the first time in his 10-year career when he faces the Orioles, his old team, on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. What could help Guthrie is the familiarity he has with some of his former teammates in the four starts he has made since being traded three years ago, along with the success he has pitching against two of the Orioles' best hitters, Adam Jones and Nelson Cruz. Jones has just one hit in 12 at-bats against Guthrie in his career, while Cruz is 6-for-24 with one extra-base hit. Calling the opportunity “very serendipitous,” Guthrie said before Game 2 on Saturday that his knowledge in playing with and pitching against several of those he will face in Game 3 could be to his advantage.

The Orioles' primary formula for victory this season has been to keep the game close until it becomes a battle of the bullpens. It worked most of the year and then unfolded perfectly in the American League Division Series. In all three ALDS games, the Orioles waited out the Detroit Tigers' Cy Young Award-winning starters and then pounced on the club's soft underbelly relief corps. It won't be so easy in the AL Championship Series, which begins with Game 1 against the Kansas City Royals on Friday night at Camden Yards.

Not long after his team finished a three-game sweep Sunday night of the league-best Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie received a text message from one of his former teammates. Orioles reliever Brian Matusz congratulated Guthrie and the two exchanged brief pleasantries knowing that they'd probably have a chance to speak in person very soon. When the Orioles and Royals meet in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday night at Camden Yards, no player from either team will be able to put the unlikely matchup in perspective quite like Guthrie.

Jeremy Guthrie, Orioles pitcher Is it distracting to you when rumors start circulating about a manager's job status? For me, it's not a distraction. As players, we really don't hear a lot. Fans think we hear and read everything, but we don't know nearly as much as the people asking the questions or the fans think we know.

Jeremy Guthrie received a warm reception from the crowd at Camden Yards when he took the mound Thursday for the first time here since he was traded away before last season. Then the Kansas City Royals right-hander did his part to beat his former team, handing the Orioles a 6-2 defeat in front of an announced 23,282. Guthrie, who was the Orioles' Opening Day starter in 2008, '09 and '11, held them to two runs (one earned) on seven hits over six innings to snap the Orioles' season-high four-game winning streak and allow the Royals to salvage the series finale.

SEATTLE -- In organizational meetings during spring training, Orioles officials pondered slotting right-hander Steve Trachsel, and not Jeremy Guthrie, into the No. 1 spot in the rotation. Their logic was that as a veteran, Trachsel, who had 141 wins entering the season, was better prepared to deal with the rigors of occupying that role. He wouldn't be overwhelmed by the high expectations or the challenge of facing the other team's top starter. It's not that Orioles officials felt Guthrie would be, but the right-hander did have just one full major league season of experience and 27 career starts.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Chris Tillman's four-seam fastball was in the 87-to-91-mph range Friday night, certainly not what it can be or what it has been in the past. In some instances, it would be a cause for alarm. But he commanded it on both sides of the plate and also threw his curveball and changeup over for strikes. And that was really the difference Friday as he pitched the first shutout of his career. Tillman said afterward that he didn't have early command of the curveball, but catcher Steve Clevenger kept calling for it. Tillman found it, and he was practically unhittable.

Jeremy Guthrie was driving solo from his Utah home to Las Vegas to see a Justin Timberlake concert when he got the phone call that changed the course of his baseball career. The caller that day in January 2007 was Cleveland Indians general manager Mark Shapiro, who informed Guthrie he had just been designated for assignment, all but guaranteeing the pitcher's departure from an organization that thought he would become an ace but grew tired of waiting. "Honestly, my first reaction was excitement," Guthrie said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - As is his laid-back Southern Californian nature, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman has tried to avoid having the spotlight shine on him. In his start on Tuesday, however, Tillman has a chance to reach a milestone that few Orioles hurlers have touched in the last decade-plus. Tillman has thrown 194 1/3 innings this year and needs just 5 2/3 innings to reach 200 for the season, which would make him the fifth Orioles pitcher to hit that total since 2001.

It has become a matter of seeming universal agreement that the Orioles have one glaring weakness that will eventually be their undoing - either at crunch time in September or early in the postseason. They lack that one go-to starting pitcher at the head of the rotation who can tip the balance in a one-game playoff or a best-of-whatever series. They don't have a Justin Verlander or a CC Sabathia or a Clayton Kershaw to strike real fear into a quality opponent. That's the rumor, and it certainly has a ring of truth after all the years the O's tried to pass off Jeremy Guthrie as the staff ace and hoped against hope that one of their bright young prospects would finally morph into the next Jim Palmer.

Jeremy Guthrie's story is of a former first-round draft pick and top prospect who struggled to meet hefty - and perhaps unfair - expectations that were placed on him. Ultimately, he was forced to go elsewhere to get an opportunity, and when he did, his powerful right arm reminded everyone what the hype was all about. It is certainly a feel-good story, especially for Orioles fans who have waited patiently for the organization to develop top-flight young pitchers, only to watch one drop in its lap on a $20,000 waiver claim.

When Jeremy Guthrie came to Baltimore as a member of the Kansas City Royals last August it wasn't his turn to pitch. So he watched four games, signed autographs and soaked in the atmosphere from the visiting side. On Thursday night, the right-hander is scheduled to take the mound at Camden Yards and face the Orioles for the first time in his career after spending five seasons in orange and black. “It's great -- fond memories, great coming back to the fans,” said Guthrie, who was 47-65 with a 4.12 ERA in 161 games with the Orioles from 2007 to 2011.

The losing became so persistent that Martha Macgill pulled herself from the rotation of Episcopal clergy who regularly attended ball games at Camden Yards. She remembers one defeat in particular; it was Mother's Day 2007 and Jeremy Guthrie pitched eight sparkling innings only for the Orioles bullpen to squander a five-run cushion in the ninth against the Boston Red Sox. Her son Jack Kelleher fell to the floor in despair. "It just got so depressing," says Macgill, the rector at Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill.
